R2-3X (300% 3D Printed R2-D2)

awesomeR23X_01
I’m starting to dabble in the world of Kenner-style Star Wars customs, after restoring a rough 3.75″ R2-D2, dubbed Repro-D2, I got the bug and wanted a slightly larger project. 3 times as large. I purchased an STL file of the original Kenner R2 and had it 3D printed at 300%, roughly the size of a beer can. This size allows for cool photos, that would be impossible to take with an original size R2 action figure. Read on for some progress photos during construction, and more creative photography with my R2-3X.

Repro-D2 (step by step)

ReproD2_06
I’ve been surviving quarantine by purchasing vintage toys and taking studio photos. I felt like my original Kenner R2-D2 was showing his age and wasn’t looking his best in photos. It worked great for Dagobah and some Tatooine photos, but if I were to properly emulate Kim Simmons’ catalog photos, he would appear pristine. I found a beater R2 at a comic shop for $10 and finally got around to restoring him. I 3D printed a third foot to boot. Click below for the step by step.

Grail Acquisition: Vintage Dagobah Playset

dagobah_09
When I was a kid I always wanted “Yoda’s House” playset; this was one of the mighty grails that I never got. But now I’ve restored one and collected all the figures on the packaging, I’m ready to celebrate and show off. I had been eyeballing purchasing a vintage Dagobah playset for some time, but it was finding a mostly complete set with a box in good condition that made this too hard to pass up. Not only is the box in reasonable condition, but I love the retail stickers on it. Not only was this particular box clearanced, it ended seems it ended up at $3! THREE DOLLARS?! Holy crap.

Click below for a ton more pics, including my attempt at recreating this packaging shot.

Grail Acquisition: Luke’s Lightsaber

grate_06
I have wished for a decent Luke lightsaber for many years. I haven’t been happy with many of the offerings, and the few that I did like were really expensive. I couldn’t justify the high cost on a lightsaber. Talk about a luxury item. Anyway, due to certain circumstances, I was able to get one I’m really happy with, both for photography and swishing around. I took some more fun shots, click below for more! …continue reading Grail Acquisition: Luke’s Lightsaber

Star Wars the Force Awakens Blu-Ray Review

Sweet! #forceawakens Arrived! Reviews coming soon!

A photo posted by Andy Jones (@ageowns) on

It was an exciting weekend in our house. Yes, Easter celebrations meant a lot of sweets and goodies, but we also received a review screener of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. My eight year old son and I saw it in theaters on the day it came out, and have been dying to bring it home ever since. So now that we have it in our sweaty little hands, how does it hold up on the small screen and repeat viewings? How are the bonus features? Are there any easter eggs on the disc?
