Just gonna echo everyone else here.

Best Han ever, by a country mile.  One of the best "human" figures of all time.

And, yeah, had a stunningly easy experience at Target. Bought two online after midnight the day of release, picked 'em up the next morning, neat as a pin. 

I will definitely do an ESB head swap.  I worry about messing up the neck permanently on what is at this point a rare and expensive figure.  If I can accomplish the task by dremmeling out the head, so much the better (as they're clearly far easier to replace and, worst case, you wind up with an extra stormtrooper.) 

Can't wait to get the new Stormtrooper Luke this summer at SDCC.

Arrived today, exactly the day predicted.  I'm hesitant to compliment those soulless fiends at Walmart, but they did a good job.

Yeah, the palace songs are pretty excellent.

Well, the original palace songs.  :)

Yeah, I think the problem is that there's no good recording of the Sail Barge music, like the recording of the palace music you posted. I definitely have this one bookmarked to use in my palace diorama though. Once I mount the barge on my wall, it'll be my next project.

Oh, you know, I got my signals crossed.  Didn't realize my link was actually the palace music, not the barge music.  to me, they sound like just remixed versions of the same song, but the barge version is more, I dunno, "industrial"?  With the horns/melody much more muted compared to the electronic sounds.  I guess I just prefer the palace version.  :)

But I don't mean to be negative about what is an utterly terrific and brilliantly-executed idea!

That's absolutely brilliant, Lando, but that audio clip you linked to sounds weird to me.  Very tinny and dissonant and seems to lack the "melody" of the barge song.

This version, for instance, sounds better to me.

YMMV!

Anyone have a good reason that Jabba's bed moves left and right?  It's on some kind of track like the Jail door...  it moves...  I can't figure out why.  Jabba doesn't need it to move.  It doesn't seem to make sense to me.

Feng shui.

Thanks so much for sharing the pics, Quazar! It looks great and I am jealous!

Thanks!  :)

Cool pictures!  Where did you get that Pizza accessory?  That's awesome.

Thanks!  I honestly can't remember.  Probably at some long since-defunct dollhouse miniature store or hobby shop (or possibly eBay), but it's been a while.

MANY years ago, I made a pizzeria diorama for action figures (long story) and I still have the accessories.  I didn't want my barge to be too tongue in cheek (at least not yet) so I avoided sprinkling the soda cans, coke bottles, napkin dispenser, etc. throughout, but I couldn't resist throwing the pizza in there.

Ah, Jedi Defender.  So sad to see this forum looking like a post-apocalyptic wasteland when you were once so lush, so vibrant, so full of life.

In any event, purely out of sentiment for what you used to be, I present my latest photonovel creation.  :D

This one was for a contest sponsored by  The Indy Cast  - the world's premiere Indiana Jones podcast.

So here's -

"Indiana Jones and the Mayan Secret." 

As part of the rules of the contest, we had to use that title, which was created by contest organizer and uber-customizer, the amazingly talented Ron Hemble.

So here is MY take on "Indiana Jones and the Mayan Secret."  This is just chapter 1.  Unfortunately, I only completed two chapters by the contest's deadline, but I will definitely be finishing this story.  My plan is to try to post one chapter every 2 weeks for the next two months, for four chapters in total.

In any event, I hope you all enjoy this - if there are any of you out there!  ;) 

All the best, 

-Lance
