Your Saga Legends / Mission Series Collection - Picture Thread: post your collections, dioramas, & Kenner / retro mockups!
That's awesome, I can't wait to see 'em!! These figures just lend themselves so well to that sort of thing.:grin:Had to have another look at them pics @EddieU. They are fantastic. On the second pass only just noticed your custom prototype death star droid. Been meaning to do this one for a while now, quick question, did you use one of those AMT Gigantics Preying Mantis kits or is it a sculpt (have a couple of the 90s reissues sat in my folks attic ready to use) Also high fives for that Mungo
Haven't made a diorama in over a decade (it kinda turned into my day job as a set designer/art director) but now you've give me the itch to crank out some vintage box/catalogue style ones.
Soft goods are pretty terrible at the mo so I think they'd have a tough time topping the '83 figure but I'd love to be proved wrong. I'd totally pick them up if so.As long as Hasbro used the right kind/cut of fabric, wouldn't an Emperor's Royal Guard look great in this line?
damn, forgot the link: TheRealDub's Alien ReAction picsThanks, man! I think all of us who dig these figures are vintage "it-getters" :grin: If you haven't seen them yet, check out TheRealDub's pics of the Alien ReAction figures--they look like they're straight out of a Kenner Toy Fair catalog!
Thanks, Mike--but untrue, your own pics, and plenty of other peoples', are proof of that. The head on your Han almost looks like a completely different paintjob from what I've got (or the other pics I've seen), or is that just the angle?Eddie - your pics are amazing man~!
Anything else that comes along is redundant.
If the mock-up is this rad, can't wait to see the finished project! Mini-Rigs seem to work so well with these figures because though they're iconic to us in their own right, they don't have the "baggage" that ships like the X-Wing or the Falcon do (though the SL Stormtrooper sure looks great in the TIE Fighter...).Inspired by some of the awesome pics here I've decided my first custom project in years will be to create some vintage style prequel boxes for my mini-rigs (scratches, dents, creases included). Here's a quick photoshop mock up using camera phone pics. For the final one i'll get the right tone of mustard and some higher res pics to use. Looking forward to this little project....just need to dig out the rest of my mini rigs and pick up some more Saga Legends.
Thanks I think you're spot on regarding the mini-rigs working well.If the mock-up is this rad, can't wait to see the finished project!

It feels like they put aside all of their articulation differences to come together and celebrate the good Admiral's "Man of the Year" award! :grin:This thread inspired me to open up and display a bunch of my SL/MS figs. Thanks to all of you for that
And showing love to POTF2, Vintage Collection, Saga Legends, Mission Series, and Black Series
Thanks, Ben! I really wish there were some Hoth-based SL/MS figures, because the 2 feet of snow outside my windows feels like it's going to waste.EddieU - AWESOME work! Especially love the pics with the Kenner Cantina, Dewback, and Rancor!
Please post more pics when you have time!
I would, too! Sadly, the only ITT I have is a trashed, yellowed one missing pieces and sentenced to a box in my basement. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a good deal on a "new" one, though.He almost has enough to fill up the Imperial Troop Transport.
I'd love to see a picture of that!
We're totally getting a new one. I'm holding off on a eBay buy until Rebels has been out for a year or two.I would, too!

Well, I'm guessing Cartoon Network and Disney can't play nice.i still have my original talking Troop Transport (but the electronics no longer work )
i can't wait to see a new one from Hasbro with the Rebels line. I'm really excited to see what the new series brings to the table but still upset that they cancelled Clone Wars.... I would have loved to see a season 6 that ties into ROTS and maybe a bonus 60 minute episode that went into even more detail about Order 66 and the other jedi that were killed or fleed that were not shown in ROTS.
