This could be the greatest thread of all time.

What if??



Lines blurred?



Obi Wan was turned?



Boba was a lady?



Darth was good?





Muppets were plentiful?



The death star never forgotten?

Tony Taylor's Star Wars AT-ST Diorama via the ARC forums
While this is still a work in progress Tony has provided image updates showing his progress and it is looking very interesting from what he has shared so far in his topic in the ARC Sci-Fi forum titled "Knocked out and abandoned AT-ST Chicken Walkers 2 WIP


(Click on image or html to view article.  Image source: Tony Taylor)

Not sure what scale the snap-kits are but with the modifications Tony has made to these models they certainly look convincing.

Nice work.

I don't quite understand the feature, strength, and weaknesses of the "Twin Ion Engine" propulsion usually associated with the "Dark Side" compared to the kind used by "the Good Guys".

But I couldn't help to wonder if it was, for example, the Rebel fighters that were built around the TIE drive......

Has to be the best movie franchise period.  Set the stage for everything else in my opinion.

Love the toons.  The Wall is particularly poignant.  As Austin Powers shows us, un-named evil henchmen are people too.

It appears that Tony has finished his Star Wars AT-ST Diorama

He has created a very nice and simple little vignette/diorama that works.

Sith don't surf? Sounds kinda cute, but , as everyone knows, isn't even remotely true:



And when they don't have a board with them (TIE cargo holds are notoriously small), well, there's always the local fauna. Sith mind tricks do that for you!

Wine cabinet? No way! That's a scale replica of the Trojan Walker!

When the Trojans pulled the thing into their city after the Empire left, Stormtroopers climbed out at night and opened the city's gates.

That Tie Fighter is awesome!!! I love how the undercarriage is technically "Fixed" as well!!  ;D

Adding props to a Y-wing would be easy too, since its engines are separated and well spaced away from the fuselage.

You want asymmetrical Star Wars?  Hows this one suit you?

Its variants are even weirder.


OK, so maybe its not technically asymmetrical but its close enough for me  ;D

I think they were called Magnagard fighters, used by the trade federation and later the separatists. One is in the 3rd prequel flown by General Grievous. But the scene in the painting is from the 4-6th movies era. And the craft is a bit modified.

Surprised this has never been suggested before now.  To build that and have it placed on the display table at any show would most certainly be the catalyst for some interesting responses from the fanboys and fangirls of that franchise.

Something seen on another forum - if anyone is interested, I could put you in touch with the person offering them:

Quote
I have a new product!
kit-ready to paint
IPhone 4 charging dock with figures automatic electronic lighting system . Whether or not the phone is charging, the light sensor automatically detects the fade light and triggers figures lighting.
When the sensor detects the presence of light (in the morning for example), the lights go automatically out.
Two Star Wars figures included. You can choose any favorite characters from Star Wars
Electronic system comes already installed, you just need to paint figures and the dock and put batteries (batteries included).
For the new IPhone 5,the price is slightly higher because the parts for the charger are more
expensive.
price 69,90 euros
For any question,please PM
All the best

I for one wish it was in 1/35…ah well.

Some ideas:

- Change weapons?
- Different schemes - maybe winter camp, desert camp, jungle camp?
- Scaloramed into 1/35 maybe as a 1 person vehicle or maybe a unmanned one?

Meant to be a question mark at the end of that last, but got distracted by a conversation I was having on this side. I was trying to imply that blasters are a great way of handling Ewok infestations (if handled properly, that is).  ;)

Something entertaining for you to watch if you were ever wondering about what it was that R2D2 was actually saying.  Personally, I was hoping for more sass and sarcasm but still funny: https://youtu.be/_0KMUZSVAqw

The guy probably could add them as well; last time I checked his blog he was busy with a flying transport for AT-ATs which could also "walk" through shields.

There were next-gen AT-ATs in the background of the "rally" scenes on Starkiller Base in TFA - they had a similar aesthetic to that beast.

I was just looking at the Revell General Grievous' Starfighter:



And especially the tail with a distinctive 'rudder':



And thought that this thing just screams to be built as a racing boat!  Remove the guns and anything else superfluous and give it a high gloss (say, bright red) paint scheme and appropriate decals...
