Darth_Ice did me a favor by picking up a McQ Luke at CIV and grabbed a McQ Chewie for me, too. He was real patient waiting for me to pick them up, too, while I had some trouble getting to his neck of the woods. Thanks, dude!

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Working with Acrylic....?

Anyone ever drill acrylic? It seems like a brittle plastic. I'm wondering if I can drill peg holes for Ultarama pegs in these shelves without destroying them?

30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC Star Wars Comic Packs
« on: June 22, 2006, 05:39 AM »
New Swami predictions, including OT 2-packs.

It also says The Saga Collection "comes to an end"? Already? A unified line doesn't get any more unified than the whole Saga in one line... ???

Star Wars Celebration had no exclusive figure... CII brought us the first-ever GL fig... And CIII, coming on the eve of Darth Vader's big "debut" movie, saw the release of an exclusive Vader fig.... What would you like to see for a 30TH anniversary con fig?

A tribute to the original Star Wars? In what form? Something again focusing on Vader? Luke? Another Lucas...? ::)

Here's my idea: Focus on father & son, Anakin & Luke Skywalker, not just the first film. A set featuring Anakin & Luke seeing each other for the first time, as depicted in the original Return of the Jedi.

Retool Evolutions Vader with a head featuring the original Sebation Shaw make-up, eyebrows and all. Give him the sweet smile of an old man who's taken a long, dark road to finally find love for his son. Retool the right hand to 1) hold a saber and 2) remove to feature a peg sculpted/painted in the form of severed wires.

Take whatever superdeluxe mucho articulated ROJ Luke you're working on (or have completed) for the (V)TSC line, and sculpt a new head for it. Give Luke the sad look he has on seeing the condition of his broken father. Sculpt a little tear running down his cheek.

Now pack the two of 'em with Luke posed kneeling over dad, on a base with a 30TH anniversary logo and whatever name they decide on for the con ("Star Wars 30TH Anniversary Celebration"?).

What would you like to get from the event.....?

P.S. SW 30TH in L.A.?

Collector's Tips / Baggies for Loose Figures
« on: April 22, 2006, 08:27 PM »
For those of you who use the ziplock baggies from , what size do you find best fits most Star Wars figures? Do the dimensions they list include the zipper, or just the usable space inside??

Among the many important improvements of the more recent figures over the older ones (sculpt detail/accuracy, articulation, scale, movie authenticity), a more minor one has really caught my attention. Aside from the articulated joint, has anyone noticed how much nicer the separately sculpted hands are over the ones sculpted at the ends of POTF era arms? I love that the newer hands are finer detailed and plastic, instead of paint-encrusted chunks at the end of the arm. Compare the old painted meat hooks on POTF Ben to the raw plastic ones of ROTS pilot Obi-Wan...

I can't help but notice the difference in these things. Somehow the plastic looks more realistic to me than the paint. The paint really seems to be thickly coated, too; it buries the sculpt detail. Not to mention that at least as often as not, it goes out of the lines and gets on the sleeves. One fig I keep looking at wishing they would update is old Anakin. I have him next to VOTC Yoda and OTC spirit Obi-Wan. He still looks half decent, but if one thing jumps out at me it's those old POTF arms, the ugliest part of which is those big, painted hamfists.

Anyone notice this guy?

I thought I saw an article on RS a few weeks back, but I can't find it. It might've been about the Target ornaments. I've got mine ordered. :)
