  1. http://www.calormen.com/Star_Trek/SouthBend/index.htm If you check out the link above, you will see a cool old starship from 1979. Below is a link on what Im trying to make, a CLASSIC TOS ENTERPRISE that can be reconfigured. http://www.calormen.com/Star_Trek/SouthBen...B/prototype.htm http://images1.snapfish.com/34738%3C987%7F...845349533nu0mrj http://images1.snapfish.com/34738%3C987%7F...845349536nu0mrj Lmk what you think. I honestly think that this toy is a good start to give TREK fans a good kickstart back to basics. AAs ships are great, but I really think fans can get more than that and would be willing to back them up if they did. Granted, my prototypes are crude, but the idea has merit as well as marketing potential--accessory packs with cargo containers, extra engines, dishs, pylons as well as extra weapons and sensor devices. Im tired of seeing just a ship and the potential to make other ships with mixing and matching parts is IDIC itself. Hope you enjoy the TOS CREATOR SHIP
  2. I was hoping that if the FIREFIGHTER PILOT came out we might actually see that rig. I just watched EP III again and there are a host of vehicles that they could do. I know the snowspeeder and y wing always sell out where Im at here in Jersey. I would really like to see some new vehicles rather than a repaint. Heck, even ANAKIN's CLONE WARS ship would be met with open arms.
  3. Hello, For a long time, the idea of a starship that can be reconfigured has been talked about on the ART ASYLUM msg board. I was one of the 3 that help found this idea. My two friends, Mars and Arex came up with the STARSHIP CREATOR series based on the software and I added the SOUTH BEND ENTERPRISE that is able to be reconfigured. Together, we have been trying to get support for this idea inside the ART ASYLUM itself. I have made a prototype using legos, epoxy and a Polar Lights TOS ENTERPRISE, please give us your feedback, we really want to know what you think. Go to this thread to see pics. http://www.artasylum.com/cgi-bin/ultimateb...ic&f=8&t=002638 Please remember this, this will apply to any of the trek franchises, tng, tos, ds9, and voy. The toy prototype was done by an amatuer....me, so cut me a little slack and please lmk if you think this has any merit with you the trek fan and do you think it would sell.
  4. I think if you order a decal sheet from federationmodels.com, you should be able to accurize it even more. Granted this ship is a tad bigger than the ERTL model, but not by much. I would skip the aztec pattern, I dont think it would ever turn out to what you wanted or expected. Granted the SOUTH BEND ENTERPRISES do get a little pricey, but you know what, they are worth every penny, I have 2 and 2/3 (I have a pylon and nacelle missing) but the other two are complete. Even tho the toys are quite old, they are still very sturdy, some glue or epoxy may be needed to strengthen the areas where the glue has faded or become eroded over time. I can assure you, any money you spend on this toy is worth it. If you are not satisfied with it, lmk, I will always pick up a SOUTH BEND ENTERPRISE as long as its somewhat reasonable.
  5. Future BATMAN and THE ROBIN look good, even THE GOLDEN AGE FLASH-ill wait and see how it goes.
  6. Thanks PJ and SpiderBoy2099, I just think its a waste, considering the techniques used today as opposed to 10 years ago. I was really impressed that the TAS figures of Justice league are getting knee and elbow joints-that was the only thing these figures ever needed. I hope they redo some of the BATMAN TAS line.
  7. I have tried to contact the 4H club and find out why with such great sculpts that they skimped on the elbow articulation. In the BATMAN/SUPERMAN 2-Pak, SUPs has elbow and ankle articulation in addition to what the figures both have already. I even saw the big 12 inch Bats and yet again, no elbow articulation. With Marvel Legends being as popular as it is, is there any hope of seeing a DC character with that kind of articulation?
  8. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! These figures are the worst I have ever seen. I picked up a GL and I had to take it back, it looks vaguely similar to the promo pics but the expression is not the same as well as the paint job is the crappiest. I love KC and I have been looking forward to this line for the longest. Its a big dissappointment. Maybe Bats and Robin will look better but I aint holding my breath. :evil:
  9. Nightwing doesnt look too bad, I was shocked to find BATS/SUPES at Suncoast Video. I just wanna know, how come Supes has elbow articulation and Bats doesnt? I originally didnt want to buy this line due to the limited articulation, but after buying the Bats/Supes 2pak, I have changed my mind. I definately just want the main characters and the upcoming villians Croc and Freeze. I like DCD, but at 17$ a figure, I will pass unless its a really great figure.
  10. Sorry, my bad, its early and Im a night person-Thank you Riker.
  11. Hey all, If anyone has an old NCC-1701 PLAYMATES ENTERPRISE they want to get rid of, please let me know. I dont care if its broke, just need to know what part is broke and what pieces are still in decent shape. If you have a loose one that you want to sell or trade for gi joe or star wars stuff, lmk. Thanks for your time.
  12. Hey JayC, I have looked at the 3 sites for summer cons and none of them have any info on the YSK exclusive. Can you find out anything? Like how much will it cost? Is it available as a 1st come, 1st serve? Is there a limit to how many you can buy? Any info you can give would be very appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Hey JayC I read adc's summary of toys coming from AA and at the bottom there was a paragraph which said the LOTR Helmsdeep playset for the Minimates was absolutely incredible (paraphrasing) I checked today and its gone, what's up with that? Is this a mishap similar to the Marvel Minimates posted pic that was put up last year and taken down oh so quickly?
