Thanks guys.

AE77, Spray mount is a Sprayable adhesive. Sprays on like heair spray. (sorry environmentalists)
It's in most art stores.

I dont use the stick lables. Not that there is anything wrong with em, I've been using
spraymount forever so i stick with it. The good thing about it, is that before you "Really press it on good"
you can lift off and reposition it.

I havent had a cardback separate yet...(as i knock on wood)

So it holds for years plus...

Yep. I prefer glossy. I know alot of carback makers use matte, but there is a shine to the hasbro prited cards, and unles you use a color laser printer, i think the gloss paper comes close to creating that similar effect.

Wow, they turned out fantastic Glass! They look like they came from China, very nicely done! What kind of printer do you use? I've got some cards that I made and they never get past the computer stage because I have such a ****** printer, I've considered getting them printed at kinkos but I think that may be a bit expensive.

The sticker on the packaging of the Hasbro figures says season 3.

Fresh from the Group project at FFURG.

Vintage Chebacca in Snoova Disguise.



I layed off the detail on this one. I was sculpting and adding all these little details, and remebered, that the vintage line didnt have alot of detail.
It's got some rough spots that i would have taken more time to smooth out if i didnt wait till the last week to do this custom.
I also was gonna paint him one shade of brown like vintage chewie, but i remeberd He colored his fur for the disguise, so i gave him a couple washes of darker browns and black.
His Blaster is a cast  and the Vibro Axe is the Scope and Butt of some random rifle i found in my Fodder box.
As for not being able to find a good reference pic, i did the next best thing... I made one.

Here is Snoova Carded.



I googled Machine and engine parts and grabbed a bunch of pictures and made it look like his armor and gadgets.
I even photoshoped a vintage shadows of the empire line for the back of the card.
Since SOTE took place between  Ep 5 & 6, that where i placed the figs. Thats why i'm using the 41 back ESB card.

That is really outstanding work.  I don't know what to say, other than JESUS THAT'S AWESOME!

I can't believe how well you made this design look.  I bet if Kenner had made a vintage Snoova look like that, we wouldn't think the Snoova design for SOTE was so funky.  You made it look downright awesome.

Wonderful work my friend!

Oh my god!  Unbelievable, excellent work!
I would have made the Snoova a darker shade of brown or maybe make the "patches" more defined - this would not look as "realistic" as the wash, but I think it would feel more "vintage" to me.  Still, that's subjective and your Snoova turned out freaking awesome, so nice job!
The cardback is very well done too, I love the Snoova graphics - it looks perfect.  The Shadows of the Empire Vintage line on the back is a great touch as well.
Great stuff as always Glassman!
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.

Thanks chewie, It's funny but  the more i di vintage figures, the more i want to keep making them.
They are fun.  I wish kenner would have made some EU figures. That would be too cool.

Thanks Gregor, I thought about that exactly like you said, but it looked too ugly. So i wiped it off and went for the more subtle dark patches.
