Akials Vintage Custom Playsets

Post by Akial on Mon Dec 07, 2015 8:12 am

Well I see there is still a lack in the Diorama category. That shoudn't be  Wink
I'm doing a lot of customs with old rotten playsets, similiar to customize beater figures. The first to finish is this one. It is made from an old cantina playset, which turned into an Echo Base Diorama.
And it is a nice place for my Hoth Custom Figures. Very Happy

Close up from the left side. General Rieekan and Toryn Farr are really concerned about the Imperial invasion

Close up right side. The famous movie scene with Luke in the Bacta Tank and Han and Leia concerned about him. BTW Luke is made from a Walrusmans Body. His Body is as wrinkled as it would be after 35 years in the bathing tub. lol! And the diapers mold is already given. With gasmask and Luke Jedi head it Looks pretty good

Same question I had, as well as the screen that is clear with green stripes on the left side.

Thank you all. bowwing The bacta tank is made from a plastic which is used for graveyard candlelight to protect them from wind. It's not 100% clear so there is that blurry effect on Luke. For Toryn Farrs Screen I cut a foil and taped it to the cantina table and painted it with a green foil marker. Unfortunately I couldn't find one who's colour is more shiny, but it works.
Actually I'm really proud on this because last week I won first price in an competion on Facebook. First Price is a Sandpeople 21back moc. Not mint but hey (!) what a great price for a collector. I really look forward for the postman. yay

So good.

I had plans of making a Galactic Heroes version out of out of an ImagiNext Green Lantern base, but only got so far as customizing a GH batch Luke, Toryn Farr, FX-7, 21-B, and Probot.

Throne Room Duel

Another Playset Kenner/ Sears easily could have produced.
Just took the Jabbas Dungeon Base and added a custom backdrop and some figures yay

Thank you Andy and Steve :-) The Vader is made from a Bib Fortuna head as this one has the grey pale skin and those staring eyes ;-)
