Gentle Giant / Re: Gentle Giant Busts

Well two whites and two blues sold straight away in the store.
Obviously I kept the Utapu formyown collection ;D I'd have liked to have kept one of each but I also bought a sandtrooper and Han solo this week along with my sideshow 1/4 leia so I really couldnt justify keeping 3 different colours of the same bust.
They look great by the way, I actually preffered the 501st to the utapu but I decided to keep the Utapu because of the edition size.

All the armour except the helmet is made from galvanized sheet steel.
I'll looking to this Rub N Buff but I doubt I'll find any in the U.K.

Collector's Tips / Re: carded figures on the ceiling???

Its a wierd one but may work, what about long pieces of string across the ceiling in rows so that both edges are resting on a piece of string? you could use the same piece of string for a full row of figures.

Before I post my R2 upate I've updated the Fett pics in the fett thread.

Well the R2-D2 Dome arrived awhile ago now.... it was appauling, he describes them as only needing a small amount of trimming but it needed huge amounts of filling and then alot of sanding. It also needed all the panels re dremelling. Parts were missing but I did manage to persuade the ass to send me those. Paypal werent interested and totally dismissed my complaints. So if you ever see these kits on ebay avoid them or expect alot more work than advertised.
So I did all the filling, sanding (until it had a glass like finish), dremmeling and primed it again. After priming it showed up a few areas which still needed filling which we'd missed the first time round so I've filled those and I've started on part of the blue. I plan on spraying all the blue parts first and then touching them up with a small brush and then masking all the blue parts off and spraying the silver all at once.
Here how its looking now I havent done any work on it for a few weeks now will hopefully get around to doing some more soon.

Its taking alot longer than I anticipated... I won't be building more lol. I may RC this one though but got to start the body first!

right I've fianlly weathered the jetpack, it looks a bit over weathered but thats mainly to try and disguise the creases etc caused by the way it was built.
But I'm happy with it pretty much cost me nothing, the only thing I had to buy that I didn't already have was the green spray paint so its a jetpack which cost me 5.

I also finally bought some wookie braids:

Unfortunately though the saga figures along with some marvel, movie maniacs etc have taken over Fetts place so I no longer have room for him in the store.
Hes currently in the store room/work area, I may sell him on ebay as a lifesize statue/costume not sure yet though.

Yep, not sure why there coming this quick.
We usually have to wait  2-4 weeks after stuffs been released in the U.S so it makes a nice change to get something first for once ;D

Well I was already collecting the lines I collect now before I found this place but I wasnt going to buy the Sideshow Leia until a few people on here said it looks alot better in person than it does in the photos so I've stook with my order because of that. So theres 135 spent because of the forum!

Just recieved word that my Leia will be here on Friday, I wasn't to sure wether or not to bother with this one but after alot of people have said it looks alot better in person I've decided to go for it. I've got my Grievous and Obi-wan on display in the store at the minute as I use the ones I buy for myself as display peices rather than unboxing other stock.
I'll probably take Obi-Wan home now and display my Leia in the store.

Well my Saga figs have arrived, just though I'd post a pic to show what part of the vintage when towards:

Those Sandies are all great, I really like your use of cloth on your figures.

I really like this looks great. Have you considered maybe adding a very small bit of red to the helmet? perhaps paint the black line above the eyes red? Or just add a couple of little lines across the cheeks or head? I think that would really bring it together.
