Who's this Owens D... do you have a link?

Yeah... it's in my signature.   That's who I got the Star Destoyer (and about 2 dozen other dioramas/custom vehicles from).

Thanks JediShawn, I might try and come up with a few, mainly just for the fun of it for us here.

You know, Hasbro could have made one little piece of the defense wall that was on the beach on Kyshyyyk, and packed it with the wookie warriors.  They could have then been put  together and make a big one!

Had to post this, just another example of the creative mind of Owen D... wow, I wish Hasbro could make stuff like this.

I am of the opinion that every POTF2 and up playset were half-assed. The only reason Mustafar worked for me was it was for Starcom. Though I can't figure out what you can attach to the walkway near the door?

I am looking into the Hoth Battle sets for my Clone Outpost, only for the turrets, but I have yet to see what they are like.

BTW, Owens work is awesome. It is ashamed that more people cannot own items like that.

That is a dang pretty outpost- Excellent work!

I'm afraid Hasbro is never going to give us a playset this nice, for any price.

I agree, Hasbro will never come through.  I've given up on them.  Maybe someday another company will get the rights like Sideshow did on the 12" figures and be able to make playsets.

Remember the Attakus Death Star?  Since I don't have a few grand to throw at that, I commissioned Owen to make a 3-level Death Star for me.  Here's a couple pics of the first level.





Maybe, hopefully, somehow, some company will make something like this.

I wish they'd make one too.  I don't really care too much about the scale either.  Even if the darn thing was the size of the Gunship I'd pay $100.00 for it.

With all the Endor related figures coming out this summer, a rerelease of the Vintage Ewok Village Playset would be cool. Hasbro would never do it, but still.

A good idea, but maybe the robin hood version with the canopy.

I personally would rather have something from Cloud City.

Or this.... Owen made it recently.



What a playset that would make... and imaging it in all white with a few tweaks to be a Cloud City playset too!
