Last seen as a work-in-progress scratch-built 1:1 scaled Snowspeeder, the single-seated Star Wars spacecraft made it's way to 2nd floor of Balai Kartini in Jakarta - not by itself of course - to hold court in last weekend's Star Wars Day Jakarta!
Least you think the speeder landed on the convention floor via flying thru the sunroof of the building, I was told the folks had 5 hours to assemble the speeder on site, with the result what you see here in these pics. Made by the folks from Zero Toys in Bandung, this was one of the highlights of the show, IMHO.
Folks had the opportunity for photo-ops, and for a small fee, you could climb into the cockpit for snaps too! On hand were two female Rebel Pilots - one of whom was the adorable "Misel" seen in the video first posted (Swell to meet you, Michelle ~ *iBlush*)!
I curse my diminished physicality to be unable to climb in for a snap, but perhaps one day soon when I recover … meanwhile, I shall live my dreams vicariously thru the attendees!
Here's a fun video-peek at Scott Tolleson's new TYCOON DEADBEET to be released at Comicpalooza in Texas (May 24-26). As blogged earlier, this clear-vinyl-with-black mini-deadbeet-"innards" edition is limited to only 10 pieces and priced at US$75 each! Look for Scott at booth #2223 and harvest yourselves some Deadbeets! LOL
"Bounce Boy" is designed by Taiwan graffiti artist Bounce and produced by VTSS. Showcased here in these images is the hand painted prototype sculpture which was displayed at Young Art Taipei (YAT) last weekend in Taiwan.
"Bounce Boy" is a 12 inch tall resin piece, with it's eyes in GID (Glow in Dark), and will come with laser etched wood box and wood Certificate of Authenticity. Both price and released date is TBA, so do stay tuned for further updates! Meanwhile, check out more images HERE on my Facebook!
"WAR" was waged on two fronts at last weekend's Star Wars Day Jakarta, with Battle of Hoth (From "The Empire Strikes Back") and Battle on Geonosis (from "The Clone Wars") recreated as toy-dioramas on show! Check out individual still images for HOTH and GEONOSIS linked to their respective Facebook albums
Utilizing toys from fans and collectors, and built diorama bases, the battlefield and hangar on Hoth was first seen in Star Wars Day Bandung in 2012, while the Geonosis battle field is a new build, and incorporates a snazzy audience seating ala a Gladiator's arena = fun times :)
The latest LUSTER JI JA from Mr Clement comes on the form of the GREY Edition featuring a glossy-Gold colored beak, limited to 200 pieces and priced at £26 each (World-wide free shipping). Purchasing details via www.mrclement.com.
New Wood Idols from Amanda Visell, with the focus on Disney characters this time, my fav being Dumbo (daawww) who measures 12x10x5 and is priced at US$800.00 - well, how much do you think faux flying elephants cost? LOL
There's the Witch (from Snow White, complete with apple), Cruella (from "101 Dalmations") and Captain Hook (from "Peter Pan" - and I know all these by heart, no research needed LOL), and finally Eeyore with removable tail (buddy of "Winnie The Pooh"). These are one-of-a-kind original sculptures, hand painted, hand sculpted in custom box - available via myswitchero.com for US$800 each.
Seen on display at last weekend's Star Wars Day Jakarta, was this mirror-ball-styled severed Vader-head on show at the Art Project" exhibition arena. Titled "Darth Goes to the Disco", it was by contemporary artist Wiyoga Muhardanto, and while this was not a wholly "original" concept, it was a nice dash of reminiscence to be had, IMHO :)
And I have a feeling Darth is a "Earth, Wind and Fire" sorta guy, no? Heh :)
