I'll give you a cookie if you finish them...

A WHOLE cookie, and one that you won't even have to share with the rest of the OCB family.   :o

According to your statistics page you've spent 9 days, 7 hours and 10 minutes here.

Get a move on, cupcake!

I know how you feel, Scott. I haven't worked on my Cloud City playset since April. :(

How about I promise to get some work done and post some pictures if you promise to get some of those customs posted? I'd like to see how that ROTJ Han looks before investing 15 bucks in making my own.

I'm willing if you're willing.
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

You guys cannot believe the WIP's I've got around here...  A SA Maul sits in pieces in a bag as we speak that I started back probably in 2001 maybe?  I've got sheets of plastic laying around...  I need more actually since what I have is too thick to work with easily.

Lots of stuff, no time, and no $ to buy a lot of the materials I want/need to work with.  Can't recall the last time I actually did casting even.   ::)

After thorough debate, we have agreed to acquiesce to your request.

A White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie it will be.

Is a Mrs. Field's cookie OK?

Commander Ralph McQuarrie
General Rieekan (body)
Senator Palpatine (head)

How's the progress going, cupcake? It's been over a month now and I want a report on this dude, he looks a little like Spalding Gray.



Now that it's winter in Minnesota I expect you to buckle down on this crap. It's going to be another long winter, and you may as well make the most out of your time inside.

Was that cough meant for me or do you have a touch of the flu?

I've been customizing a lot lately - I don't have a website other than www.thecustomalliance.com to show any of them though, and Mr. Curto is probably going to take an update break for a couple of months. 

OCB - if you want I'll email you some pics of some new customs and you can show them in this thread if possible.

 :P

Well...  For what it's worth I boil/popped 4 AT-ST Han's, swapped the RIGHT arm onto the LEFT arm of 2 of them (the other two just go to the fodder pile), and swapped some left hands on.

It gives me 2 headless Scanner techs...  yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll get to the head casts and hat casts later...  Much, much, much, much, later.

 :-\

It's something though...  Right?  Like my Rebel field officer figure that needs a head and a body post made...  My SA Maul that I may scrap at the moment in hopes for one from Hasbro...  My Rebel and Imperial officers that need headcasts...  My Saga Endor Soldier redo that needs a head too.

Hey, I'm busy, and poor.  Deal with it.

Ha!  I've actually started hollowing out the Stormie Helmet to accept Han's Head

Next step is to figure out if I want to cut the head balls off of the Stormie and Han and glue it on there...or...do I find a way to cut down the Stormie ball to get Han's head on there

I think cutting and swapping makes more sense

Note to self: enable language filter.

j/k - congrats on getting off your butt, Scott! I was cutting you slack until after the holidays, glad to see you're making progress.
