LEGO / Tank Droid MINI
« on: August 28, 2005, 09:14 PM »
Found this at that other site:

Apparently it was set to be a promotional MINI, but it was cancelled for unknown reasons. Now I need to find the right pieces to make it!

Revenge of the Sith / Sam's Club Exclusives?
« on: August 21, 2005, 02:46 PM »
I'm not sure how accurate this piece of news is, since it comes from another site, but I feel it may be worth sharing anyway.

Anyway, they're saying that this fall, Sam's will be getting two exclusive sets. The first is a repackaged Mustafar playset with 4 Clones. The types of Clones are not yet known. The second is an ARC-170 with 3 Clone Pilots and an Astromech droid. Both sets will be $30.

IF this is true, I'm definately getting the ARC, possibly the Mustafar set too, depending on what Clones they pack in.

Star Wars Action Figures / Diddly's Customs - Updated 6/17/06
« on: August 20, 2005, 10:25 PM »
Okay, I've had a few Lego customs laying around, so I thought I'd share them! I have yet to customize any Hasbro figs (unless cutting off the leg connector of R5-D4 counts :P), but I'm gaining an interest every day. So perhaps I'll be posting some Hasbro customs someday. :)

Here are a few Lego customs I've done. Since taking pics of individual figures up close is so hard, I had to leave the pics kind of big, so I'll leave links to them.

First up, as seen in TSR: A Deadly Inauguration - Mon Mothma!

Next, we have the first of several sneak peeks of upcoming items in The Sith Revelations. Here is Rodian Jedi Master Ernid Ottet.

And the third and final figure for the update, and another sneak peek of future events in TSR, straight out of the Jedi Knight series, Kyle Katarn!

And now, we have the ship "shown" in TSR: Voyage to Trideeno, the Trideeno Starfighter.

And finally, a sneak peek at the next part of TSR, a shot of the WIP entrance chamber of Robilus Dralco's mansion.

And here's a close up of the design on the floor:

Hope you guys enjoy! :)

Saga Collection '06 / 2005 Holiday Figure - Darth Vader
« on: August 10, 2005, 04:43 PM »
According to THIS GH article, we'll be getting another holiday figure, this year a holiday version of Vader.

I'm expecting this to be crap, just like all the other Holiday figures. Also, I'm a bit Vader-ed out after the past year, so there's another reason for me to pass.

Anybody else agree?

Photonovels and Movies / TSR: Voyage to Trideeno - NOW UP!
« on: July 25, 2005, 02:05 AM »
So I've been hard at work lately trying to get part 3 of TSR ready. Currently it's about halfway complete, with lack of batteries being the cause of delay. I'm hoping to have it ready by next weekend.

Big thanks to Vator for creating pictures of two primary locations in the story. :D

For now, I leave you with the usual preview shot. :)


Saga Collection '06 / Bonus Mini Hologram Figures
« on: July 18, 2005, 01:55 PM »
So it looks like we're getting a bonus Mini Hologram figure packaged with each figure in the new themed waves. But that's all the info that I've heard. Does anybody know how they will do these?

I'm guessing each figure will come with a mini figure that goes with whatever scene the character is from. Example, Vader will include the mini Palpatine from the Saga Dooku, R2 will include a holo Leia, etc. Of course, Hasbro could always do a random packing thing with certain holograms being rarer than others, but that might piss off variant collectors who must track down each type.

Personally, these interest me at the moment, but I'm not expecting much.

Any thoughts on these?

Saga Collection '06 / Battle of Naboo Wave
« on: July 18, 2005, 12:53 AM »
Didn't see a thread on this wave yet. We get 8 figures in this wave.

My predictions:

BATTLE OF NABOO (8 figures):

-Qui-Gon Jinn; SA with softgoods cloak and lightsaber.
-Obi-Wan Kenobi; SA with softgoods cloak and lightsaber.
-Jar Jar Binks; SA with boomer balls.
-Naboo Security Guard; SA with blaster and ascension gun.
-Battle Droid; ROTS repack.
-Queen Amidala; new near SA version with pistol and ascension gun.
-Gungan Warrior; SA with boomer balls.
-Darth Maul; MOTDS repack.

Saga Collection '06 / EE Exclusive Astromech 5-Packs
« on: July 15, 2005, 09:58 PM »
From GH:

Hasbro announced Entertainment Earth's exclusive Astromech Droid 5-Pack Exclusive!

Two five packs:

One Imperial pack containing–
R2-Q2, R4-A22, R3-T2, R4-E1, and R3-P6

One Rebel pack containing–
R2-A6, R2-X2, R2-C4, R3-X2, and R4-M5

****, more overpriced sets from EE. Why must I be a sucker for Astromechs? Ah well, I can't wait to buy these. I just hope they aren't TOO expensive. :-\

Watto's Junk Yard / Google Earth
« on: July 11, 2005, 11:26 PM »

Anybody download this yet? It's pretty cool, high quality zoom ins of places. The images are kind of old though (my area is about 3 years old). Still, damn detailed images of my house and street.

Also kind of freaky that Google is taking high quality satellite photos of us. :-\

LEGO / Lego Star Destroyer Bridge
« on: June 28, 2005, 01:48 PM »
Here's the SD Bridge I made for my photonovel. The base was made in a few hours, but it's the walls I had trouble with. I tried using panels at first, but that didn't work. So I decided to do entirely brick built walls. I may go back and add a roof, but not for a while.

Hope you like it. :)

Photonovels and Movies / TSR: A Deadly Inauguration - Now Up!
« on: June 27, 2005, 01:22 AM »
Finally got off my lazy bum and began shooting part 2 of Sith Revelations tonight. Here's the shot I've decided to use as the preview.

I'm hoping for it to be ready sometime within the next few days!

The Prequel Trilogy / ROTS Deleted Scenes
« on: June 12, 2005, 02:14 AM »
So I found a website that contained images of ROTS Deleted Scenes. Which got me to thinking, how much was cut from ROTS? This can include anything from entire scenes to dialogue. Let's use this thread to make a list!

Modern Classifieds / WTB Lego Mini ARC-170
« on: June 7, 2005, 09:06 PM »
I'm looking to purchase a Lego Mini ARC-170. It was given out as a promo at TRU last month, either free with a $15 Lego purchase, or $5 by itself. I can pay either cash or PayPal. Please let me know if you are interested.



Here is the opening scrawl of my upcoming photonovel "The Sith Revelations." This is going to be a movie style photonovel, and part 1 of a trilogy. The script is still in development, with only a few scenes completed, but I'm working to complete it soon. The trilogy takes place shortly after the Battle of Endor and shows how the Rebel Alliance becomes the New Republic, and also tells how the Imperial Remnant struggles to find a new Sith Leader.

All the loveable characters from the OT are in it. Fan Fic characters so far include Robilus Dralco, who is like the Bill Gates of the galaxy. His son, Sivart, becomes a major character in the fight against the Remnant. One of the main villians is named Baron Samedi, who was accidentally injured by a Jedi when he was younger.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I will be using Legos to make the photonovel. Hopefully they work out as well as I want them to. :)

But enough with the chatter, here's a preview - the opening scrawl.

Thanks to Vator for helping with the scrawl. :)


The Wookiee Arcade / Lego Star Wars - The Video Game
« on: May 31, 2005, 10:08 PM »

If you like Star Wars and Lego, pick this game up! It's so kiddie/cute that it's funny! I'm having a blast rebuilding stuff using the Force. Theres also a free play mode where you can explore the levels with characters you unlock. Overall, this game is awesome. Great for everyone!
