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!

Every geek going to Tokyo knows about Harajuku, Shinjuku and Akihabara, but there are other areas to find toys in Japan and have a good time! follow me in Nakano and Shibuya!
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.

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!).
a very simple jawa bandolier, easy to put together, and all you need is a bit of synthetic leather!

Last week end, Singapore has seen its biggest Star Wars Day festival to date, complete with the first ever Star Wars Run in Singapore.
The whole family was there, of course, in costumes!!!
Jedi robes! How exciting!!
And you can use them for other characters too!!! An old wizard, the high priest of an obscure sect or even a grim reaper!
And you can complete your jedi look with the outer tunic tutorial, found here.
