jedibearvt\'s 1:6 Sideshow Star Wars collection...

Here's my Sideshow 1:6 collection of SW figures...


Where's Maul? Well, he's got his own special spot....


And slightly off-topic, here's the four from LOTR...


I'll take some new ones to add of the Jabba set-up when Bubo arrives later in the week...

Enjoy and LMK what you think!

Thanks...but I can't take complete credit for that idea...there's an old ROTJ production photo featuring a jawa holding Bubo's leash...i thought it looked cool so ...there it is!

I like! Love the Jabba display. Is the Jawa a Hasbro figure or custom?

Thanks for the compliments everyone! I really appreciate it and it's fun to "limelight" the collection here with folks who enjoy these figures as much as I do. There's some great pictures in this thread...

boba_flint...that is the Hasbro Jawa from the mid-'90s with the "light-up" eyes. i think it holds up pretty well with the Sideshow gear...

Here's a few to start with...










Let me know what you think of this batch and I'll put more up later...thanks for looking!

I'm actually using your Ventress wallpaper! We don't get much snow in part of the world. It's nice to look at.

Unbelievable, Obi_Bear! Everything looks great! This was the first time I checked out this thread, so i am a bit overloaded on the photographic goodness you have going on here. THanks for sharing, and please keep it up!

Another great image - may steal a few as desktops if you dont mind


One thing with Luke though - do his eyes usually look that odd!?!

Thanks for the compliment Capt...
Yea...those eyes are a little "off"...this figure has that "deer in the headlights" look to it that makes getting a good shot tough...I'll try some different angles tonight and see if I can make that look a little better..

Re: Obi-Bear\'s 1:6 Sideshow Star Wars collection..

Well...I replaced the Jedi Luke picture with one I hope makes the eyes look less intense. A little moodier and dramatic as he ponders his similarity to his beaten father...

This version of Luke is real tough to photograph without those eyes looking a little too "crazed". Let me know if the new shot works better...

And Jack...that's a tough question! The easy answer is...my favorite is whatever one just showed up
...but since I've been re-visiting these figures to take these new shots, i gotta say...it's the prequel Jedi I enjoy the most so far. The robes and layered outfits add a lot of drama to posing that just photographs really well I think. Out of the ones I've done so far, Mace is my favorite...the sun was just right, the sweep of the robe looked cool...it just came out really well.
I also had fun with Assaj...it was neat getting her out in the weather and coming up with something fun and intense. She's a figure that changes personality with every pose.

And again...thanks to everyone for their kind (and constructive) words...it's always welcome and appreciated.

Re: Obi-Bear\'s 1:6 Sideshow Star Wars collection..

hey man, big improvement, I liked the colours on the first Luke but the eyes just freaked me out
, one plus with the new one is that the saber seems to glow a little more - have you considered adding an effect to them at all?

Re: Obi-Bear\'s 1:6 Sideshow Star Wars collection..

Thanks Typho...yeah I liked the colors too, but found that a more stark approach with the lighting seemed to work with this figure better.
Anytime I tried direct light on the face, those "zombie" eyes just popped (altough this alternate shot isn't too bad...)


I used to add a saber glow, but decided whatever I can do "in camara" is enough....I'm limelighting the figure here, not photoshop (not to malign those who do
)...

Sure, I can understand your thinking, turns into a very different idea if you go into photoshop. Just looking at the images again and I really like your different use of backgrounds, they seem to be matched up well with the figures.
