Review : Bandai Yoda 1:6 and 1:12

As usual, this model is a great project to do and you will be amazed at how simple and detailed the final result is.

I have only 2 littles issues with this kit:

  • first of all, the shoulders of the 1:6 Yoda are a bit weird. I know it is difficult to do this kind of articulated figures (we can only see how many action figures look funny when you try to lift their arms or fold their legs, but…
  • the 1:12 version is so great, I would have liked it to be 1:6 too!!!

The kit itself is very fast to make, and painting/weathering gives it a great realistic feeling.

The result is a nice display piece that is sure to amaze!

you can get the kit here : Amazon.com

Costuming: Tie Fighter Pilot chest piece (foam armor)

May the 4th was the opportunity to upgrade a few of our costumes. Among others was Reggie’s Tie fighter pilot. So far, his chest piece was only made of soft fake leather, and it had none of the rigidity nor the shine of a real piece of Armour.

We have watched Evil Ted fantastic work with craft foam, and had the idea of doing a new chest piece with EVA foam. With simple tools (we don’t have a workshop and do most of our props in the dining room), but with dedication, we crafted this prop, and I dare say it is not too bad for a first foam armour.

You can find Evil Ted’s channel here:

How we made the helmet here.

And finally, how we made our glue pot here (after a while, it became obvious that we couldn’t continue with a plastic plate: too much wastage!).
