  1. Posted this in the SW thread already, but I guess I'm supposed to post my customs here. This is my take on Shado Vao from Star Wars Legacy:

     

    l_47519704f5ef410e894e3e9bbe946d94.jpg

     

    l_51d8fc3a68a44b7686e081f25ccbd4bf.jpg

     

    Here's the recipe:

    -----------------

    Head-tails = POTF2 Oola

    Head/neck = GIJoe:ROC Pit Commando

    Torso = Comic Pack Obi-Wan

    Arms = Tol Skorr

    Legs = SA/SP Plo Koon (the latest release one)

    Kilt = Lumiya cape, heavily modded

    Tabbards = ROTS Mace Windu/AOTC Aayla Secura

    Forehead-sculpting = Kneadatite

    Lightsabre = Darth Maul PVC(chopped), w/ random blue blade

     

    I'm very happy with the end results. Still need to add a second blade for his lightsabre. The head didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, so I might make a new one in the future, but I'm pretty satisfied for now. :)

     

    How'd I do? Opinions?

  2. This is my take on Shado Vao from Star Wars Legacy. Almost finished, but still needs a little tweaking:

     

    l_47519704f5ef410e894e3e9bbe946d94.jpg

     

    l_51d8fc3a68a44b7686e081f25ccbd4bf.jpg

     

    Here's the recipe:

    -----------------

    Head-tails = POTF2 Oola

    Head/neck = GIJoe:ROC Pit Commando

    Arms = Tol Skorr

    Legs = SA/SP Plo Koon (the latest release one)

    Kilt = Lumiya cape, heavily modded

    Tabbards = ROTS Mace Windu/AOTC Aayla Secura

    Torso = Comic Pack Obi-Wan

    Forehead-sculpting = Kneadatite

    Lightsabre = Darth Maul PVC(chopped), w/ random blue blade

     

    Now that it's finished, the head just doesn't look right (maybe it's the face, or it's too small), but I'm pretty happy with the rest of the figure. Still need to touch up the paint in some areas, though.

     

    Anyone have suggestions for a better choice of heads to use? I'm really leaning toward doing another head.

  3. I haven't been getting out much, so I missed when the new "Vintage" cards first hit the pegs. Didn't see a Luke or Leia but I picked up Dengar and Dack yesterday. The Dengar I got didn't come with his backpack :unsure: , but the bubble tray is molded for one :huh: . There were 2 Dengars there and I only looked close enough at the cards to judge the paintjob on the figures, and took the one I liked best, but I didn't notice or remember if the other one did indeed have a backpack or not. <_<

     

    Did I choose a lemon, or were they all shipped this way, sans backpack?

  4. Man, that would be tough! Just off the top of my head, my 3 might be:

     

    Joe: My custom SE V1

    Cobra : AF Red Laser

    Vehicle : tough, either my V2 AF Panther, Laser Exterminator, or my red SNAKE Armor. (I love my Action Force stuff!)

     

    Only IF I had to make that decision! :rolleyes:

  5. Funny, I have always used both SAW Viper and Crimson Guard Immortal as individuals(though technically he's not CGI anymore. I'll explain below)

     

    I have SAW Viper in charge of my squad of FLAK Vipers (actually they're Urban Assault Nullifiers, but it's the FLAK Viper mold in the least offensive color scheme ^_^ )

     

    My Crimson Guard Immortal is a little different. In my Joeverse, the CGI has parted ways with the Crimson Guard and works for Cobra Commander now. I use the CAT Tank version of the figure with the accessories from the Convention Destro and he's my Cobra Mortal (less loud and garish-looking than the actual Cobra Mortal. Plus, I don't have one ;) ), and he's in charge of my Shock Vipers.

     

    The only other one I use as an individual is the purple officer from the Night Watch 6 pack. His name is Ajax and he's pretty much the senior blueshirt officer. (I also have a senior enlisted guy, the Sergeant Major.)

     

    On the reverse, I have multiples of the red scarf one from that set as my Skull Squad for Major Bludd. (Didn't care for the convention version.)

  6. Wasn't sure I would get this one right, but started over from scratch and I've gotten this far. It's not 100% accurate, so it still needs some finishes before I paint it, but wanted to show off my progress here. Be gentle ;) :

    Thanks for looking. :)

     

     

    P.S.: Does anyone know this one for sure: Is its registry number NV-01 or NY-01? I've seen conflicting sources. :huh:

  7. As far as story, I think that the tensions between Earth/Federation and the Romulans, and then leading to the first Romulan War

     

    The first war with the Romulans take place before the Federation was founded.

     

    It took place a few years before the final episode of Enterprise was set.

     

    It did? Really? :o

     

    Well #WTF#

     

    Where was this mentioned? I would think that I would've caught that little nugget of info. :blink:

     

    In this case, I would go with the tensions spanning from THAT war to the "Balance of Terror" episode as a Cold War premise. A posturing pointy-eared 'Dukat' would still work. ;)

     

    Too bad Andreas Katsulas is gone. He was great as Tomalak, and would've worked great here.

  8. Myself, I would place it between ENT and TOS. I would only want minimal "design retconning" from ENT to be present, though (meaning where we see more spherical primary hulls than the convex saucer sections that were supposed to be the next evolution in Starfleet vessel design for that time, but with the Pasteur being present in "All Good Things", I guess that point is moot and it is what it is).

     

    I don't know if I really want to see the "Clavicle" or "Cabbage" type Romulan ships, though. :rolleyes::P

     

    I'd like the look to be somewhere between ENT and TOS as well as some design element nods to "The Cage". Maybe the ENT-styled jumpsuits in tan and grey to resemble the outfits in "The Cage" as well as "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and details like that, just to show off the evolution from the midway point between the other two series, rather than to dismiss some elements the way I felt it was sometimes done on ENT. (This is just my personal opinion.)

     

    As far as story, I think that the tensions between Earth/Federation and the Romulans, and then leading to the first Romulan War should end up being the more forward-present theme as the Dominion War became for DS9, with a good Romulan villain as the foil, something akin to Gul Dukat's machinations during the entire DS9 series. As the U.S. is still at war, it would be a good commentary opportunity as is the tradition of Star Trek.

     

    I know, it sounds like I want an amalgam rehash of DS9 and TOS with different furniture, but this is the 'Trek' era I most want to see.

     

    As far as what the name should be, I have no idea. Something with the word "Frontier" would be cool.

     

     

    (Not to dismiss anything from the Abrams movie, but I haven't seen it yet, so I can't take any suggestions from there, not yet anyway.)

  9. They're NOT the Futura pieces. I have those, and they're in a MUCH larger scale than the MM's (note the size of the hand holding them. If those WERE Futura pieces, I wouldn't want to take a punch from THAT hand! @smilepunch@ ).

     

    I've seen the Romando stuff, but I don't recall there ever being a Prometheus in their set, and the Ent-E shown here isn't the Romando one.

     

    I really hope I can find out the deal on these.

  10. Cool, then! I guess I/we won't be missing out on this one after all.

     

    Funny, I remember talk that these both were going to be TRU exclusives (the figures, that is). Oh, well. Doesn't matter to me, as long as I can get them somewhere.

     

    Thanks for the info, though. Appreciate it! :)

  11. Rather than start a new thread, I thought I would just post this question here. Does anyone know the origins of these 2 pieces to the far left, next to the Ent-E MM (this is an old photo from a few years ago that I kept off of ebay):

     

    l_ad434516dd84474bab3597524ccd18fc.jpg

     

    The second Ent-E was supposedly a pack-in from some foreign soap company or something like that. Note the superior detail to the MM version.:

    l_eebd2a5ec2bd4167808812b4d5daac49.jpg

     

    The Prometheus shown I think has a similar story, and as far as I know, is the only Prometheus ever made in the MM scale.

    l_3eee1870d0a149fda6ecc6063e3ce8be.jpg

     

    Anyone know anything about these?

  12. I was digging some stuff out of my closets and I came across a box of my extra ST MM's, and I've been fiddling around with these the past 2 weeks or so. I forgot how much I liked these things. Even broke down and made a few custom ones. ;)

     

    Anyone else ever have or still have any of these?

  13. Ok, been re-watching fave episodes on the web, but just saw one that I remember watching but probably only once. Episode 25; Conspiracy. Interesting episode, with a bit graphic ending!! According to Wikipedia only 1 of 2 episodes to carry a warning for content. I'm not going to get into the story, but just curious if it was ever re-visited???....

    I remember in the episode "The Drumhead", Picard's opening monologue mentioned Admiral Satee's work investigating the 'Alien Conspiracy 3 years ago', or something to that effect. I presumed then that's what they were touching on.

     

    ...I think if u include the movies, they missed a golden opportunity when they didn't use Commander Sela in Insurrection!!! It would have been perfect timing and yet another bridge to the series!!!

    Did you mean 'Nemesis' vice 'Insurrection'? I don't remember any Romulans hanging with the Son'A when I watched it. ;) Would've been cool to see Denise Crosby in the last TNG film, though. Everyone would've been back for the big goodbye. :)

     

     

    Playmates should have done an Armus action figure back in the day.

    If you live in Florida right now, you can go to the beach and find a free Armus figure washing up on shore! ;) Worry about that hole in your collection no more! :D

     

    Ah, BP's tar balls: Nature's 'Horde Slime'. :rolleyes:

  14. Here's a couple I just finished.

     

    Weemus Swall:

    weemusswall.jpg

    Just a Marlon Wayans Ripcord head dremeled out to fit. I figures the hands were close enough in color so they stayed.

     

     

    Tals Wrad:

    talswrad.jpg

    Added the head from Llats Ward and some BBI hands that were a good match. The Llats head sits a little low, but I figure these guys can't all be the same height, right?

     

    I know, I wasn't really trying on the names, but hey...

    weemustals.jpg

     

    Opinions?

  15. I'm one of the folks who also doesn't really care for the 'Ultimate' titles. I'm fine with all the continuity-confusing stuff simply being labeled as an alternate universe (I'm kinda Marvel-dogmatic that way).

     

    I'm honestly at a loss when it comes to trying to upgrade/retcon a classic storyline like the 'Death of Gwen Stacey' or explaining away Cap's or Frank Castle's age/veteran relevance when it's not as easy as say, Nick Fury or Magneto's issues were done. When you think about it, Big Pun should soon be replacing Cap as the 'soldier out of his era'.

     

    As far as ones that have already taken place, the one I really don't care for is the return of Norman Osborne, that was a textbook case of the wrong people making really wrong decisions on the direction of the book...(Yes, this is a shot at Bob Harras, a man who held the title of 'Editor', yet couldn't even correctly spell words as well as your average 3rd-grader! He and he alone is responsible for destroying one of the best stories in comics and I'd say one of, if not THE defining moment in Spider-Man history. The writers didn't want it, the stockholders or the actual Marvel hierarchy at the time didn't want it, Bob Harras wanted it! I honestly hope he gets nut-cancer and has to be castrated, and on his way home from the hospital gets squashed by a steam-roller. But I digress...)

     

    I'm hoping that eventually another creative team will not have to deal with so much overlording from an overzealous control-freak editor and Osborne's return can be better explained as a sort of 'hiccup' in the multiverse that gets rectified sooner or later, depending on whatever avenue this as-yet hypothetical creative team takes with it. (Personally, I was really hoping he was a Skrull, but yet another opportunity wasted. I would've even settled for one of the Jackal's clones, but as clones a touchey subject as well, I'll pass on discussing this one any further.)

     

    This might be a little off-topic, but I can't even tell you how I think they're going to put the genie back in the bottle with Spidey's identity being public knowledge now. I'd love to see how they pull this one off.

  16. But after they let paypal screw me out of $200+ dollars because of some bogus seller knowing how to work their system better than they do, I cancelled both accounts. Anywho, if anyone's been looking for this one loose/complete, here you go:

     

    http://cgi.ebay.com/star-wars-Legacy-Terados-Lon-mint-Lse-complete-figure_W0QQitemZ310211472409QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item483a0b6c19

     

    Or if you want to buy it and trade it away, I'll give you a MOC Revan or Malak for it. ;)

     

    Yes, I'm dead serious.

     

     

    *EDIT* Some Mod please delete this. I posted when I was angry and I'm sorry to waste people's attention on this thread.
