Nice job!  Very interesting story ... I'm intrigued ;D
On to #2 :P
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Ok, this one is back up.  I don't know for how long, but it's up for the time being.

Kind of funny looking back at it, with how it was my first attempt at something like this.

Well as some of you may be aware, I'm going back and reshooting a lot of the older stories.  I just can't help it.  Here's a couple of redo pics for when this story will be redone which will be up soon.

Chewie, looking forward to the "redos"  However, one comment on this picture - it looks like he's not holding his gun very well.  Almost like he's squeezing it between his fingers instead of holding it.

BTW, now we know why you want so many Madines. :)

I redid the hand a bit - thanks for pointing that out.  I had thought it looks a bit funky and maybe it still does?  But hopefully a bit better now?

That looks better.  Man, I'm really nit-picking now  ;D

That's ok bud, I am always up for constructive criticism.  I've made tons of changes based on suggestions from everyone on these.

I really like the look of these figures, but they look too much like GCC-era rebels than prequel era cops.

Granted, the Faytonni/Med-Beq figures were a bit deficient in terms of articulation and posing, but these guys don't quite look at home to me.

Please don't tell me that Lance!    :-X

Just kidding, your feedback is always appreciated and I know you are against me going back and doing these... it's just something I want to do.  With them being part of the Yakface main page soon I want the older stories to have a fresh look to them, as the old look is just really terrible in terms of quality.  New readers, in my opinion, would be turned off.  So with how hard I've worked on these I feel I'd later kick myself for not giving this my best effort.

When the next story comes out which will be soon this will be Rykrof's new look for sure though.  It wasn't so much an articulation thing as much as I didn't like the torso on the Faytonni figure.  It just was "twisted" in that position that I didn't like.  I figured a change in the torso outfit might look good to show that Rykrof and Tylin's rank is higher than the other officers.  To me they're better at least.  Hope that the new look will grow on you Lance. 

Last preview...

I'm gonna miss the old look. Those first few chapters are my favorites. When you post a new one, it's nice to look back on the smaller scale episodes.  :)

I understand Jediknight (and appreciate your honesty).  But don't worry, the old ones will still be around!   ;)

I dunno, maybe if the "vest" part of the outfits were grey, not brown.  It would look visually distinct enough from the rebel outfits.

They still look cool, though, but more like OT dudes than PT.

And I really don't think people would be turned off by the original chapters.  they're still great, imaginative and well made.
