Toy-Wars

Wódka najpierw zapiekła delikatnie w język, potem kopnęła z mocą buldożera, a po chwili napełniła ciało przyjemnym ciepłem. Popiła doskonałym szkockim piwem, jak głosił napis na szklance, i naprawdę zrobiło jej się dobrze. Jeszcze łyk wódki, znowu kopnięcie, jakby szturmowy czołg przyłożył w brzuch, łyk piwa… Ulga. Pierdoleni Europejczycy. Coś jednak potrafią.

I have been working on this project for months! I began with the SHELL of a Millennium Falcon from 1977. It had no stickers, and most of the parts were missing. Since April 2016 I have been working on acquiring the various parts. As I have gotten them, I have been painting with acrylics and pastels to achieve a weathered, scratched and scraped Falcon, and I painted certain panels solid colors, which is something the original decals tried to do. I managed to find a PDF of the stickers online, but I printed them on a matte cardstock, so that they would blend better where I chose to use them. I used pastels to give the effect of fans on the top, and I color copied the internal cardboard insert to create more interior panels, which you can see applied in the interior shots. I used a photo editor to change the original taillights from red, to pale blue, as they appear in the movies. Now, it barely looks at all like the vintage toy ship that it is. I’m not sure if Vintage Star Wars collectors would love this or hate this. I don’t collect vintage Star Wars toys or anything, so it was all new and fun for me, just a fun little project. 

Hope you like it!

Despite early leads by Darth Talon and Starkiller, Jaina Solo won Hasbro’s 2016 fan choice figure poll. (Here’s the percentages just before the poll closed.)

Jaina, who is the oldest child and only daughter of Leia Organa and Han Solo in decanonized Legends timeline, has had at least one figure from Hasbro in the past, plus a Bishoujo-style statue from Kotobukiya. The new figure will take some time: The fruits of last year’s poll – Darth Revan and Sabine Wren – aren’t expected to hit the shelves until late this year. 

Hasbro also announced several new figures at SDCC, including a 6′ Black Series Hera Syndulla and an Imperial Royal Guard inspired in part by the (also Legends) comic Crimson Empire. Getting a 3.75 figure, the newly recanonized Grand Admiral Thrawn, who will appear on Star Wars Rebels when it returns in the fall.

Revenant of the Mists

Custom 5″ figma

A human revenant from GW2! Armor set is Mistward plate, warfists, warboots; aetherblade legplates; and fractal capacitor. She also comes with a fractal sword, Nevermore and Frostfang.

I had a lot of fun making this one. In the past, all my GW customs were super-deformed in design (aside from one gigantic 12″ figure D: ), so it was interesting working on creating detailed armor in this scale without needing to distort it onto a cute chubby form. 

I wish I had put her in more action poses, since none of the photos actually show off figma’s awesome articulation :( Ah well. Next time then.
