Utapa Playset
« on: August 2, 2005, 11:38 AM »
I'm going to let this "sink" in before I go ahead and explain how this came about. Enjoy....










Update: This is my first attempt to post photo's, so bare with me as I try to make it work. :P

It's not just you. I forgot to preview it and am now not sure I can post the pictures. I'm working on it. :P

Any help? The pictures are hosted by snapfish.

Ok, here they are. 









Very inventive Darth Anton... I have several comments, but I'll let you describe this first.   :)

Thanks Chewie!

Ironically, the pictures are showing as boxes with the Red Square, Blue triangle and Green circle for me (due to my antiquated machine,) but I know what they are.  ;)

This was just a quicky photo shoot. I'm working on putting a lawn in my back yard and had to remove a huge slab of concrete. When breaking it up, low and behold, underneith was that hole. Basically, there's a drain for my pool filter right there that I didn't know about (in fact, the city didn't even know what it was.) The drain is a 4 foot diameter, 8 foot deep cylinder made of brick and is by no means water tight. Water seeped in and took dirt with it leaving behind that hole under the concrete.

After looking at it I said, "of course, Utapa!" and made that quick little set up before having to take care of the hole. I wanted to do the fighter, but didn't have the time to set up a strong enough landing platform. :P

No problem.

That was a clever idea you had once seeing the hole.  Looks really good; too bad you couldn't save this diorama and put it in your house.   ;)

I know you didn't have time, but seeing this makes me wonder how cool it would have been to add a few more things to it.

Darth Anton's Wife/Girlfriend:    "...I know it's Saturday, and that your home number isn't really for this type of thing, it's just....it's just it's happening again..."

Her psychiatrist: "It's okay, I'm here for you.  Tell me what has happened."

Darth Anton's Wife/Girlfriend: "I sent him out to the backyard to plant the lawn, and the next thing I knew he was on the internet and then..."

Her psychiatrist:   "He's in the hole with action figures again."

Darth Anton's Wife/Girlfriend: ::sobs::

Her psychiatrist: "We've discussed this before, and I have to remind you, it is a movie year."

Darth Anton's Wife/Girlfriend: ::sobs::

Her psychiatrist: ::plays with a ball of sculpy reclined in his leather office chair::  "And being a sinkhole planet, it was a unique opportunity to make a diorama..."

Darth Anton's Wife/Girlfriend: "This is Justin isn't it!!  Anton programmed CHEWIE's number into my psychiatrist's slot on the speed dial again, didn't he!!"

Her psychiatrist: ::wookiee ROAR::

Haha, nice one Dressel.

That's a cool dio Darth Anton, too bad you can't keep it!  I'm pretty sure hasbro won't be making one of them  ;)

Way to seize the moment! ;D

That's a cool Utapau playset. I'd do one but my mom won't let me dig a hole in our backyard.

Then you dig a hole in your neighbor's backyard!  ;)
