The Fellowship

Here are some pictures the fellowship of the Ring or better, the fellowship of the Ring so far. The Toy Biz Gimli filled a gap, but two hobbits are still missing. Will they ever come? Sideshow…please!!!

Gandalf the Grey

Here are some pictures of my latest Sideshow Lord of the Rings figure. It’s a great head sculpt with a good likeness of Ian McKellen.

Another Hairy Little Guy

Here is the third part of my little Lord of the Rings shooting, starring Gimli from Toy Biz. This was one of the better Toy Biz head sculpts. For the first pictures I used some of my temple walls in the background. Then we see Gimli with his buddy Legolas on a DID horse and a little attack by a custom Orc.

HBO – Rome

rome

A couple of days ago I bought the HBO show Rome and as an addition the book about the show. Both are good sources for my upcoming Rome diorama project. There are a lot of great reference pictures of locations, props and costumes. I really like the show, even though it reminds me sometimes on an ancient version of that Dynasty Denver clan. On the DVDs are some good extras as well, but I haven’t seen them all yet. One very nice feature is the option, to view the episodes with comments on the historical background. A very usefull feature I think.
So little by little it becomes more clear how my project will look. It will be a street somewhere in the plebeians quaters. Have a look on the following picture of the fishmarket street of Rome. That will give you an idea of the direction how the diorama will look.

Hobbit Time

After a busy time with the Behind the Curtains comic I take a little break from the comic stuff, before I start working on the first episode and the sets for it. The next little diorama project will start in a couple of weeks, but first there are some figures on my wishlist, before I start spending money for new diorama material. And I’m running out of bodies. So, no customs at the moment. But in a few weeks it’s Actionfigurado in Duiven and I hope I’ll get some cheap bodies there.

So what to do? There are still some new figures that I haven’t portrait yet. So the next few updates here will be about my sixthscale Lord of the Rings figures. The first one is:

Bilbo Baggins

Bilbo

I’m still waiting, that sideshow will continue their LotR serial, but there isn’t much hope for it. Toy Biz brought us some 1/6 figures as well a couple of years ago. Most of the figures didn’t have any likeness with the movie characters, but some were okay or at least acceptable. One of those figures was Bilbo Baggins. And here he is on his way through a forest not far away from the shire.

On Drums: Jimmy Frost

So, it’s done the last german pages are online now. At the moment I’m working on the english version. There are only four pages left. So it probably will go online tomorrow, or with some good luck already tonight.
As always, here are some links to the latest stills. Willy Davenport selling wine, with his bike and on stage. Joe Pushkin in Joe’s garage. And Jimmy Frost playing a Clash song. For the last pages about Jimmy click on the picture.

At the end it was really a nip-and-tuck race between Jimmy. Willy and Adriel. If you like to, have a look on the voting statistics.
