Adam celebrates his fandom for The Mandalorian with a build of the new LEGO set of The Razor Crest ship from the show! And keeping watch during the build is Adam's new Mandalorian helmet replica, built off scans of the original prop. Plus, in a first for Adam, he's going to take on this build without knolling the pieces! Shocking!
Adam shares a memento from his ILM modelshop days: a cast piece of a complex kitbashed greeblie he made for Star Wars Attack of the Clones! We hear about how Adam made this piece, what set piece it was used for, and its versatility in providing surface detail for a variety of miniature scales.
In his journey recreating his favorite film props, Adam has made many lightsabers. But this machined replica of Luke's lightsaber was Adam's first foray into prop replication using reference photos he took of the original. He made this in Jamie's shop over 25 years ago after seeing the prop in a touring Star Wars exhibition. And even though it is far from a perfect replica, it holds up as capturing the essence of the prop and the gratifying experience of making the prop his own.
We upgrade our favorite Star Wars sixth-scale figures with custom light-up lightsabers using off the shelf CCFL fluorescent tubes. Follow along as we show you the step-by-step process to modifying a CCFL tube and sixth-scale lightsaber hilt to turn a typical Hot Toys or Sideshow Collectibles figure into a brilliant light-up scene. It really transforms the look of a figure!
To get started making miniature dioramas, we're sharing the design files for a 1:18 scale Star Wars-inspired Death Star hallway display, made for Hasbro 3.75" figures. Norm shows the step-by-step process of assembling this diorama, which only uses two sheets of acrylic and makes use of styrene wall panels and LED lighting. Follow along and we hope you build your own! Find the design files here.
