bored as hell. just drinking, watching the Rockies kick yet another teams butt and the wife is out with the girls and i'm here wondering whether everything to discuss about star wars toys has already been discussed.

is it all pretty much just "when is so and so coming" "i got my shipping notice" and my bimonthly fight with Josh...is this all there is to look forward to?

how about what you plan to do with your collection? I mean, what do you do with them?

Has anyone brought up Vader's helmet on the new SSC figure?

Well, I'm planning on selling off most of my collection.

And I totally repainted my SSC Jabba today. He looks amazing, but I'm waiting to take pictures until I repaint the throne and Salacious as well. I also broke and reset his left arm to match the prototype more.

Just got my invoice for Don Vito. Can't wait to get him, though I think he'll have to share the detolf shelf with The Joker.

Cancelled my Excl. Toht (awkward, since I'd already bought the replacement glasses), but I'm really looking forward to Vader. I've stayed out of the dome arguments, because it doesn't matter enough to me.

And I'm almost through all my commissions (repainting Jabba was my reward to myself.)

Oh, and I'm excited about JabbaFan's custom pillows for the Jabba display.

Hah, I used to do that when I was a kid! I had just about all my G.I. Joes in the tub with me! I even put in a playset. There was barely room for me! I used to pour shampoo on Cobra Commander and pretend he was melting.

as for me I am planning on shooting more photos on my utapau trooper. Thanks to some excellent photos on this and many other boards. They inspire me to get creative with my stuff.

Also getting a clone obi (thanks s.anthony) thinking about using the parts to make a bash of something. First thing comes to mind is not a star wars character. LOL.

Did anyone else get a shipping notice fro SS. I just got one but, not sure what it is. It might be my replacement Han in Carbon. Just hoping it would be my Vader. Probably wishful thinking.

I received an estimated arrival notice from SS the other day on the 1/6 Vader. :banana

A couple of other Freaks did also. :D

BTW...

I got one to, but this is a shipping notice, SS is sending something. My wife and little girl a going to St. Augestine for a week so I'm going to finish that stuid Emperors throne. I'm going to miss them, but I'm looking forward to finishing some stuff.

I wanted to put lights in mine! Metaphorge and I were working on it, but the project fizzled. I LOVE your Emperor thrones. An SSC Emperor wit throne is my new grail of the line, now that I have Jabba.

Okay, here's the debut of my repainted / retooled Jabba, just so we have something to talk about.

Thanks that means a lot coming from you. I did a few more mods to the throne I gave it a more curve back I think it looks much better. I just have to put more bondo and paint it. As for the Jabbs throne it not hard to put light in it. I even put an on/off switch in, and I changed the top light from green to yellow.

Thanks, and yeah, these are just quick and dirty shots. I want to add another layer of gloss to the eyes and the mouth.

I was thinking about puting light in the Han in Cardonite wall thing, but I'm scared to screw it up. Maybe some day. Maybe.

Well, I accidentally broke his arm at the elbow when I added the ball joints at the shoulders, so I glued it in place how I wanted it, then sculpted the flesh around the break before repainting. Happy accidents!

well i love what you did with him...........he looks awesome. i tried a gammy repaint & slopped a bunch of gloss on the snout & mouth but i could never get it to show in my pics. in hand you can see it big time.......but the pics...just barely shows and if you weren't looking for it you would never see it.

Thanks Bro. WOW 2 more months. Its cool as they get older she's got a lot of my personality and her mothers looks. Mike were you able to get a Han in Carbonite? It looks great next to Jabba. Just takes up a lot of space.

What did you use to make the drool? Looks great

Customikey

I wish I could afford Han in Carbonite, but it's just not feasible at the moment. Maybe someday....

I used epoxy glue for the drool on Gammy.
