  • What's great about the whole booze bottle issue, is I found a website that shows you how to make your own:

    https://www.thespruce.com/make-minia...tons_nip#step2



    Another thing I've been doing is a process called "Retrobrighting". Some of my older Stormtroopers and Cobra dudes have yellowed over the years. I took a clear plastic jar w/ lid, place your figures in it and fill with hydrogen peroxide. Screw on the cap and let it sit out in direct UV sunlight. How long depends on how bad the yellowing. Week and a half later, I have 20/40 year old Stormies that look absolutely brand new !.



    I LOVE these channels, they've helped me out so much !!:

    • I've been looking all over Ebay and Amazon trying to find a cheap AT-AT, and almost none of them are affordable. But I'm going to keep trying.

          Hey guys !, Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Haven't worked on it much here just lately, as we've been doing massive renovations to our home. We've remodelled our front yard and had three loads of river rock put down for our front gardens, and had someone come over with a bobcat and completely smooth out our backyard to make a family area/firepit, and a playground for our son. I just had to put the Toy theater on a small break until we get all of this done in time for our sons birthday.

          RaTix has contacted me about this, and we're going to work on a way of making this a feature for the DSA website, and not have it buried in the forums. I'm sorry I've not been able to work on this more, but I work nights, and the baby sleeps usually until 12 in the afternoon, and then I have to get ready to be at work at 4:30pm, then I usually work until 10 or 11pm, rinse wash, and repeat. Daz and myself never get any time together as she doesn't get home until 4pm. I would kill to get some time off !.

          But I will work with RaTix and make a hard concrete time and way this is going to debut on the DSA site. We'll keep ya'll updated.
          I miss the old shout box.

      • Daz told me that I can purchase an AT-AT, I just can't really find a cheap one, or one that doesn't need serious repair. But I'm still looking. I don't even want to think about how much money I've sank into this, but It's so damned cool. My son is going to be set for toys for his entire life !. My friends have already warned me that I'm going to have to put a lock on my studio door to keep him out of everything !. And that's not a joke. I did get a sad suprise ona few of my items. It seems over the years some of the plastic has become extremely brittle being over 30 years old. I picked up Serpentors Air Chariot, and it lterally broke into pieces in my hands. But I did repair and reinforce it. The gun on my trouble bubble broke off, as well as a few pieces on my Cobra Stun. I did get the new Tie Striker, and the new Falcon, which was priced at originally $130.00, and thanks to a friend I scored it for only $30 !. I also repaired the electronics on my old Falcon, and got them working again. I did have a DSA HQ set done, but I just didn't like the size, it was just too small. I want a main base with a parking lot, check points, and so on, not just one simple building. I have almost all the furniture, which has been the hardest part up till now. I think I only have a few pieces left to stain and polyurethane, as it's much cheaper to buy the furniture unfinished.

        While RaTix's mansion is HUGE, it's actually almost too small to take proper pictures in, so I've had to make separate sets for his bedroom, kitchen, etc. The same for the DSA HQ, as ya'll saw with the barracks picture I posted. I even have a DSA Mess hall with a complete kitchen, food, and accessories. I do have the Quick-E mart facade, but I don't have the interior done yet. I've just been able to work on it bit by bit, and when I can afford it. For the battlegrounds/outdoor sets, my main board has over six different kinds of grass powder on it to make it more realistic. And the trees have been a challenge. For the street set I still haven't been able to locate a light pole in the proper scale, so I'm just going to make one.

        • I'm going to finish the DSA Spaceport today, since the temp is over 100 degress outside, too hot to work outside on our back yard. Good incentive to finish it today, and clean up and organize my studio. More new toys to sort out and label. I really need to finish up the Bar set also. I just got all the different bottles, which was holding me up. Can't have a bar, with nothing for everyone to drink !. lol .

                • Deslock will finish the sets, then realize he forgot to create any stories. Then being as he is, will insist on creating enough stories for a full 22 episode season before starting any shooting. He'll eventually have creative differences with himself along the way, which will result in a writers strike from the right half of his brain. After 12 months of intense negotiations to resolve the issues and another 3 years of solid writing work, we will maybe, just maybe, finally see it.



                  "Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you."
                  ?Darth Plagueis

                  "Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me."

                      Things are in the works guys, working with RaTix now to solve some issues. I'll post more after we've talked.

                    • I'm trying to have someone come over today that does computer graphics for a living to help me out. And I'm still hunting for an AT-AT in decent shape.

                      I've put in so much money and hard work in all of this, I don't want to finally put all of it out, and have shitty graphics as I don't know WTF I'm doing graphic wise.

                      And now Photobucket pulls their shit with literally no warning, so I'm trying to work out a way with RaTix to host all the pictures directely here on site. Also RaTix has it worked out that the DSA toy Theater will actually be on the home page, without visitors having to hunt down the pictures in a thread in the forums. It will be right there in front where everyone can see them.

                      • As I said before, I had a friend of mine come over that does CGI for a living, and he showed me some great tips and tricks to help out with making it more a comic book format instead of individual pics, and also offered to fine tune the pics and help me out even more. He loved all my sets ! after tomorrow I'm going to have 5 days off in a row, I have the new Corel Draw, and thanks to fantastic work by RaTix, Not only can I host my new pics onsite, but also right on the front of the home page !! Thank you sooo much RaTix !!!. I'm going to spend the next 5 days getting everything together and ready. If I have any problems with the process, I'll PM you RaTix.

                          • It was really nice having those days off to work on my stuff with Daz gone away to a business meeting, and now she'll have 5 days off in a row now, so she'll be able to watch the baby, which will really be nice, and I can get this all up and running. I also have some other things in the works too. My friend that came over to help me really loved the fact that I made my own real life sets instead of just CGI'ing everything in like a lot of web comic illustrators do. I have well over 50 storage boxes of props alone, not counting the hundreds of action figures I have. Now that I have two friends close by that can help me with the effects, it will all FINALLY be done.

                            The programs I've used are :

                            Paint.net
                            Photoexplosion
                            Coreldraw.
                            Pixtoon

                            It's taken me over 5 damned years to get this all done. I don't even want to think about the money I've spent. I really don't. And I want to thank the wonderful guys at the Fighting 1:18th for all their support, friendship, and helpful ideas. And a special shoutout to NSA, the webmaster/owner of the site.

                            All of what's about to happen here wouldn't be evn possible without the hard work and amazing support of RaTix for re-working the home page to feature all of this onsite here at the DSA, and webhosting the god awful amount of pictures I'm about to upload.
