Star Wars Universe / The Star Wars: Concept Trailer
« on: December 12, 2017, 11:48 PM »
Ever wondered what Star Wars might've looked like with all the original conceptual designs used over the final designs?

A digital arts school called the DAVE School in Orlando did a trailer using concept art, and it's really incredible looking (and sounding).

Clicky the image to check out the story!

Gotta say, good.  Iíd prefer something else personally.

Wish Iíd find a ton of these but alas still absent here.  My WM just put out the repack wave nobody but one guy was asking for pretty much.  ::)

Diane got a Jeep renegade.  Itís a lease while we get through 2 more years of football and a wedding next year for her middle child.  After that we are looking at new Wranglers.  I try to buy US or US made and the Renegadenis the first thing that is neither but I gotta say we both kinda like it.  Itís goofy small and small tires too but 4wd, sorta zippy and small is good when in the city.  I like knowing I donít have to give much of a **** about anything but fluid changes and brakes too.  Besides paint chips or whatever, itíll never be out of warranty while we have it so thatís someone elseís issue later.

What Matt said...  and 4-5 hr is not long as FPS single player missions go.  Iíve heard enough on it that it detracted me buying it till itís significantly less next year.  CoD has things like zombie levels and things that expand its SP experience.

A lot of gaming anymore is tied to online play for sure...  not something I was keen on myself but eventually I relented.  Iím really cheap on paying for it though and watch Xbox live deals any time I can get them. :-\

Anyone able to give a rough idea on price on the Iron Maiden set?  I donít keep up with this stuff but asking for a friend.  I was assuming $60 but then I canít tell if this is a LE thing or what.

In other Acid Rain News, a new vehicle was announced...

It's a variation of the MkI Speeder called the Amphista.  This is their smallest vehicle, but they beefed it up with extra weapons, a figure with a working backpack, and multiple weapons...  So it's a little more than the previous MkI Speeder Raptor.  The Amphista comes with two heavy machine guns mountable to the roll cage and removable, and it includes the large water-cooled gun.

The Speeder goes from a little quad to a small bi-pedal walker mode.  It looks cool as hell with some Rebel troopers flanking it, like some kind of little support walker for them.  The grime and stuff on the deco looks better with the Alliance than the Empire IMO.

Pre-order at site sponsor Entertainment Earth, if you're interested!  Acid Rain Mk I Speeder Amphista

My CC has been smoked lately.  I got my "Space Prisoner" and Omanga Military Flame Trooper this past week... 

The Space Prisoner is a whole lot of plastic.  Reminds me, in terms of weight, of how Ephant Mon and Hermi Odle were just hefty figures beyond the normal scope of the line.  Unfortunately the astronaut figures are the most expensive too.  Hell to buy multiples or army build much, but this figure would look perfect wandering Mos Eisley too.  He's got the dirty and grimey Star Wars look plus a sci fi space suit.  He'd look cool working on an Imperial ship too.

Really awesome detail on the space prisoners too is they have individual unique numbers.

I got three, and all of them have unique prisoner ID numbers which appear multiple places on them (helmet, shoulder, backpack).  Pretty weird.  I'd love to see them do more with this sculpt as a space worker/rescue guy maybe, a soldier of some sort.  Basically the figure's backstory is Russia creates a space gulag of sorts.  These guys are sent there, and they do some kinda spacey work.  There is a scientist repaint of this figure coming soon too, all white uniform but equally filthy.

The Omanga Flame Trooper is obviously a dude with a flamethrower, but he's also a basic Omanga Trooper with a new head and new accessories.  He'd make a cool army builder as either.  I love the orange/black deco on him, which really stands out, but the accessories make the man.  The hose from the pack to the thrower is metal rope/chain.  It actually hangs nicely from the weight, and it looks perfect.  Most of the guys reviewing this seemed to miss that the thrower actually is made to clip to the side of the backpack too.  He can carry both weapons then, which is a nice touch.

I'm hoping to get a few more of these because I really like how this figure turned out more than I was thinking I would.

I also got, but didn't tweet a picture of, the Omanga "Reborn" Trooper...  If you're into RPG's, or even FPS gaming character classes, think of him as like a berserker or "tank" type character.  They're cyborgs, made from maimed Omanga soldiers who are turned into oversized, super strong, super soldiers with whats left of their bodies.  Again, over $30, but quite cool.  It's probably something I won't buy many of, as I feel like too many of them is goofy looking, but one or two per squad of basic infantry figures makes some sense to me.

The line's cost sucks, and getting their exclusives makes getting Hasbro ones look like a slice of pie...  They're actually highly limited stuff, and the entire line is basically holding or accruing in value to boot.  It makes throwing out any packaging a big no-no for me just in case I decide to sell some day.  It's a stresser on the old CC though, and paying off the balance after an order can basically kill my toy budget for a month in a matter of seconds.  Gonna be tough sledding when Star Wars gets more interesting for me in the future (assuming TVC is worth the interest).

Ordered the quonset hut for myself for Christmas.  Pricey, kinda, but it comes with just too much stuff for me to complain about it that much.  Would love a few.  They'd make an interesting Rebel scene of some sort I think.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: EE Exclusive: Astromech 6 Pack

That's a pretty awesome price on the astromechs.  I'm glad I picked the set up, and since I'm putting an order in anyway I think I'll nab another astromech set on the cheap for customs/backgrounders.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Does anyone know details on this unproduced Luke?

I've seen customs made using a cast (I think) of the Vintage Anakin and the ROTJ Luke headsculpt.  Been eons since I saw that though.

Looks like a lotta folk bailing before years end.  It has been pretty ****** so far.
