  1. Thanks guys! Here's a rear view. Seems much more bulky from this angle – something I really like about this armour:
  2. Just finished my Bandai Death Trooper this afternoon. Another tremendous kit and it went together so easily. I think this armour looks even better in white than in the original black version. Thanks for looking!
  3. 1999.co.jp has the R4-I9 kit listed already, and the text suggests that the cone head droid comes boxed with the drinks serving accessories for R2, but not with a second astromech unit. One droid and an accessory in a box for around ¥1800 seems a little more expensive than the previous kits... https://www.1999.co.jp/10544714
  4. Wow, I suddenly remember having those as well now you mention them! Those and the Action Man "Depth Charge" bath salts and a "Dynamite" soap on a rope! Pretend explosives for kids...simpler times, indeed!
  5. Absolutely amazing! I wonder how many people are now frantically checking in the attic or under the floor looking for empty crisp packets...
  6. More details on TAG Hobby about the droid kits. Apparently the first box includes R4-I9 and R2-D2 with the "drinks serving accessories" from Jabba's Sail Barge! So it seems there are two droid kits in this box as per previous releases: http://www.taghobby.com/archives/289629 Then the second kit announced is only R2 with many different accessories: http://www.taghobby.com/archives/289102
  7. Thanks guys! That's the best thing about Bandai kits – they're so easily customised!
  8. I decided to try something a little different with my Bandai Shoretrooper: a camouflage scout version. As with all their kits, this was an absolute pleasure to assemble and I'm really happy with the result. Thanks for looking!
  9. Hi all, I finally managed to finish my Bandai TIE Fighter that I started many months ago. I wanted to do something a little different, so I tried to create one that has a replacement port-side 'wing'. The base was entirely scratch-built out of a large bottle top, an old PEZ dispenser, two pens and some parts from a Tamiya 1/35 King Tiger. Thanks for looking!
  10. Fantastic! Looks like a great christmas decoration!
  11. General Grievous was just announced today – to be released in July: http://bandai-hobby.net/sw/jp/products/grievous.html
  12. While we wait for Bandai to release a B-Wing, I thought I'd have a go at rebuilding and repainting the F-Toys 1/144 version I bought a couple of years ago. The kit is generally very sharp, with the exception of the cockpit section, which is moulded in quite a brittle clear plastic, that doesn't react well to glue. Overall though, it's really nice and it was easy to strip down and rebuild. I just wish I could find the other F-Toys Star Wars vehicles. They did a TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber and even a Lambda Class Shuttle. I'd just love to get my hands on one of those!
