McRobo Creations - 3.75" Khetanna Sail Barge & Imperial Star Destroyer


Trying to decide on how to use your income tax return? Well, McRobo Creations is currently offering some pretty incredible vehicle/playsets that will really knock your socks off!

First, is an impressive 3.75" Khetanna Sail Barge for purchase. Since Hasbro stated that they will not be making this iconic behemoth, this is likely your only chance to get one in your Star Wars collection. Check it out, they offer the vehicle in four different variations with pricing ranging from $500 to $3,000! McRobo Creations also makes other large-scale Star Wars vehicles too.


Jabba's Barge Lucas-Style



JABBA's BARGE - DELUXE













JABBA's BARGE - STANDARD

For a more finished presentation there is the Standard Jabba's Barge model. It features four bay doors with hinges that open into the interior, posable sails, turning gun turrets, gun racks on the main sails posts, a solid cannon, and four lifts for hover appearance. Made of new styrene sheet plastic, it's sturdy and durable, and the thickness of a nickel. Hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Painted with quality paint with metallic flake. The finished piece is four feet long, a foot wide and approximately 3 feet tall.



MODELER's PLAIN WHITE HULL

The cheapest item is the Plain White Basic Hull version.

The second item that they sell is a colossal Imperial Star Destroyer playset. 160 hours of work went into this piece. Materials are mostly ABS Flat Plastic (Styrene) and it is just gorgeous! The 6' long playset version runs for $1,600, but if that price is a little too steep for you, there is also a non-playset version that sells for extremely reasonable price of $450. Maybe we have expensive tastes, but the playset version is just beautiful. We're sure any Star Wars fans would love one of these!

"STAR WARS GENERATOR BOXES" painted by Elias

It's been a while since we have made something cast by Hole In the Ground Productions, so I painted up these new generators that they are now offering.  I drybrushed on a coat of white paint, then put on a light coat of gryphonne sepia wash.  We are most likely going to be doing some more Hole In the Ground pieces this year, so stay tuned.  I still want to make their ball speeder on Tatooine, as well as some of their Death Star panel walls in the upcoming months.

CUSTOMIZER SPOTLIGHT UPDATE: "Star Wars Rebels - Ahsoka Tano" custom articulated action figure created by SWK KUSTOMS

We were really impressed with the Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger customs that we received from SWK Kustoms. So much so that when we saw that he was selling an "Zeb aka Garazeb Orrelios" action figure with increased articulation, we grabbed that too. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that when he had his Star Wars Rebels "Ahsoka Tano" up for sale we went out of our way to add that figure to our collection as well. 

The joints SWK Kustoms adds are seamless and strong. His action figures are very well engineered figures. While, the custom figures that he has made do lack ball jointed shoulders, even I will admit that I would forgo the modification for the sake of convenience. Almost all of us complained about the 5 points of articulation in the Rebels line that Hasbro was releasing, so it's nice to know that there are customizers out there providing the articulation that we all desire to give our figures more pose-ability for play.

With around 300 customs under his belt, SWK Kustoms specializes in fully articulated figures! SWK Kustoms creates fully articulated and detailed Custom 3.75” figures. Star Wars, Star Trek, DC, Marvel or anything you can think of. With SWK you can also become your favorite character as well: Jedi, Sith, Stormtrooper, Mandalorian and much more. Figures can be purchased upon request. Price is based on how hard the piece is to make, usually between $50-150. All figures come with specialized weapons or gear & name plate stands.

Super-Articulated "Finn aka FN-2187 in First Order Stormtrooper Armor" created by Customs for the Kid

A few months ago, we made a 5POA version of Finn in his First Order Stormtrooper Armor.  It was a custom that took only a few seconds to create. This time around we put a little more effort into it. Instead of using the 5POA Stormtrooper body as the base figure like we did in our previous effort, this time around we utilized the Black Series super-articulated figure exclusive to Wal-mart to make our latest version of Finn. For this custom, we hollowed out the Stormtrooper helmet so it would fit over Finn's head, and painted the bloody handprint on.  To make the head from a Black Series Finn fit onto the Stormtrooper body, we just had to reduce the size of the neck peg to accommodate the head. We like this action figure a great deal more.

Since Finn barely participated in the battle of Jakku, and refrained from even firing off his blaster, we decided to not weather the armor on the figure.
