  5. LADY QI’RA, DARTH VADER, THE KNIGHTS OF REN, AND MORE OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS OF STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE COME TOGETHER ON STEVEN CUMMINGS' CONNECTING VARIANT COVERS See all five STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE connecting covers together for the first time and pick up STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE #1 on November 16 New York, NY— October 13, 2022 — Following Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters and Star Wars: Crimson Reign, writer Charles Soule will complete his trilogy of game-changing Star Wars comic book epics this November in STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE! The five-issue limited series will continue to spotlight the breakout character from Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lady Qi’ra. Since her comics debut, the criminal leader has had a tremendous impact on Marvel’s Star Wars comics storytelling, and STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE will see Qi’ra set her bold overarching plan in motion: ridding the galaxy of the Sith! The series will be drawn by artist Steven Cummings, who also worked on Star Wars: Crimson Reign. In addition, Cummings has crafted a stunning connecting piece that will adorn all five issues. These variant covers show some of the stars of the saga including Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, the Knights of Ren, and more key characters who will take sides in the upcoming conflict! The mysterious syndicate Crimson Dawn and its leader Lady Qi'ra have become the galaxy's most wanted criminals, as Emperor Palpatine realizes the scope of Qi'ra's plans against him and moves to destroy her. But Qi’ra still has tricks up her sleeve, and with the help of the Knights Of Ren and her many other allies, she will not go down without a fight! “Hidden Empire is set between Episodes V and VI. So, there are things this story can do and things it can’t,” Soule explained to StarWars.com. “That said, I think it will deliver a deeply satisfying conclusion to Qi’ra’s arc here, and readers will understand how her choices in this story impacted events all across the Star Wars galaxy at this time. As with many of the comics and novels and ancillary stories beyond the films, the idea is to deepen the experience and understanding of the characters. There are direct connections here to both The Empire Strikes Back/i> and Return of the Jedi — and beyond — and I think the fans will be very happy.” Check out all the covers now and be there when Qi’ra’s deadly ambitions send shockwaves throughout the galaxy in STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE #1 on November 16.

  13. "THE CLONE WARS" CYBORG ADMIRAL TRENCH by Elias of "Customs for the Kid" Emerging from our silence of September, I bring you one of my most challenging projects yet. It has been in the works for quite some time. Cyborg Admiral Trench. The first time this version of the character was revealed on screen, I vividly remember joking about how it would be such a difficult; even an impossible project, so when I received an email from a client requesting this beautiful monstrosity, I was quite intimidated. As it turns out, the desire to make a living is enough motivation for me to meet such a request with a "yes!" To look at this figure completed is surreal for me after weeks of painstaking attention and unwavering passion. The parts I used for this figure were an Orn Free Taa body, the arms of three IG-11s, and the arms of three different Clone Troopers. His head was completely sculpted by hand in several layers. I sculpted his cane and electricity effect in Blender and learned a few new modeling tricks along the way! The weapon that drops down from his forearm was hard sculpted out of dried procreate scraps cut into desired shapes and sanded for that machine smoothness. The panel on his arm is secured via magnets, and the weapon has a piece of a paperclip hidden inside which allows it to magnetize between the panel and the arm. This was the most challenging paint application I ever had to manage. The filigree on his robot arms was a challenge unlike any of the other high-detail paint jobs I've ever done. The major challenge was the symmetry I had to achieve on each individual panel, and then match it on the other two arms. The patterns on the front of his robe were also difficult because of the symmetry required at such a small scale. The dark gray lines cutting through the light gray shapes are as thin as a human hair. The sculpt on this figure was the ultimate undertaking in my opinion. Every surface of his body was heavily modified. The robe on the base figure was cut short and smoothed with the Dremel completely. I had to build out his upper torso in the front and the back in order to create the space to mount six arms as opposed to two. I then had to re-engineer the arms to have two elbow joints and be the correct length. Once his fundamental structures were done, I had several layers of detailing ahead of me. His robotic arm was hand sculpted into perfect cylinders with many panels, layers and grates, and then repeated twice more for his other arms. The greeblies on his head and collar were hand fabricated out of flat dry procreate that I cut by hand and glued into place. With all the effort I put into this figure, I'm a little sad to see it go, but I take solace in the fact that he is going to a loving home. Check out more images of their custom below in our GALLERY!

  22. Nerf LMTD Ambab Phase-Pulse Blaster Rifle by PsyfoolRulez Customz "Long overdue project....I was a bit underwhelemd with the Nerf LMTD Mando Amban Pulse-Phase blaster rifle out of the box...Feels a bit lightweight and also too short and stocky in the middle....But after repainting and doing some mods on it, definitely looking much better and display-worthy.....Will be going through all the mods and detailing done to this blaster in my next post.... Some have asked if I dismantled my blasters for painting....I used to do that years ago....Definitely recommended to do this as it would make painting each part easier and you can get to all the hard to reach areas....However, you need to be very careful when dismantling and make sure you take lots of photos for each step and make sure you don't lose any of the parts, especially springs and screws....Assembly will also be challenging and there were times my blasters dont work properly after putting back together........So now I dont take the risk and spray my blasters in one piece, masking individual parts as I go along......More tedious but lesser risk..... First off, I sanded down all the raised wordings on the blaster with rough sandpaper and then going over with a smoother grit....I also covered all the screw holes on the left side of blaster (except for battery cover)....I do this by using thin sheets of styrene to overlay the holes instead of filling them up....I find this method easier...Did this for all of the holes except for the screw hole on the round bar below the barrel...Still went with filling for that one....Then I gave the whole blaster a coat of Krylon Grey primer before painting on the various colors...I used Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze for the dark parts, Marabu matt gold for the scope mounts, Tamiya TS-38 gun metal for the body and Marabu gloss silver for the prongs....The burnt look was achieved by rubbing Tamiya Weathering Master kit....For the barrel clamps, I used aluminium foil tape instead of painting.....It gives a much more realistic metal feel to the blaster.... Besides the paintjob, there were two mods that I had to do to improve the overall look of the blaster....First is to mod the scope...The stock scope has no lenses on either ends (a big no-no!) and has a lighted targeting sight placed at the centre....I made two mock lenses...For the front, I used dark solar film to overlay a piece of round clear plastic and glued in place....for the rear, I used a round clear lens instead...This is to allow the targetting sight to still be visible... The next mod was to come up with the missing scope mount leg....The Amban blaster scope should have two scope legs but the Nerf blaster has only one to allow the priming slider to slide forward....This missing leg bothers me right from the beginning and I have been thinking how to do it and still allow the blaster to shoot....So in the end I came up with a simple solution by fabricating the scope leg out of 5mm PVC board and simply jamming it in between the scope and blaster body.....This piece is removable to allow the blaster to shoot but most times, it would be just for display and it can stay in place....May not be the best solution so do share if you have other ideas....."
  23. Lucasfilm sound editor Matthew Woods tells Vanity Fair that James Earl Jones has given Lucasfilm his blessing to use AI to recreate his iconic voice for any future uses, as well as acting as an advisor. Apparently Jones' last actual performance as Vader was in Rise of Skywalker, with Vader's dialogue in the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series created by Respeecher software. At 91, Jones said ,"He was looking into winding down this particular character".
