  1. Update June 2016 Here are some more detailed and larger pictures of the new Marines for 2016, with shin guards. The boots/shoes of the other figures are painted too. Ready for shipping right now: Hicks x 2 Hudson x 3 Apone x 1 Dietrich x 1 Frost x 1 Wierzbowski x 1 Crowe x 1 Smartgunners: Vasquez x 2 Drake x 1 Aliens/Xenos x 1 Ripley: x 1
  2. It seems the demand for some Colonial Marines to protect the Lego Collection at home was more then I had expected. Most of the troops I've made for 2016 have already found their way to their new homes all over the world. I love it when people give me feedback about them and send me some pictures of their custom figures in their new invironments - like Emil did. Thanks very much! Right now it looks like this: Hicks Sold out Hudson x 1 Apone Sold out Dietrich x 2 Frost x 1 Wierzbowski x 2 Crowe x 2 Smartgunners: Vasquez Sold out Drake Sold out Aliens/Xenos x 8 Ripley: Sold out Looks like I have to build some more this year. I'll update when I got some new ones available.
  3. Feedback! Thanks very much, Nago of Fortfield.
  4. I've made some new Colonial Marines custom figures to offer. My 2016 versions feature painted boots and shin guards. Because of this I'll raise the price for the Marines and other figures by $1. Xenos and Smartgunners remain at $20. I'll upload some pictures of the new and improved figures soon. Here is the updated list of what I got ready for shipping right now: Update 04/2016 Hicks x 3 Hudson x 3 Apone x 2 Dietrich x 3 Frost x 3 Wierzbowski x 3 Crowe x 3 Smartgunners: Vasquez x 3 Drake x 3 Aliens/Xenos x 2 Ripley: X 2
  5. Taking a little break from my Colonial Marines project I started to do custom work with some First Order Stormtroopers. As base figures I took some chinese Stormtroopers because I think the original Lego figures are much to pricy to work with. I've sculpted a prototype of a Stormtrooper blaster and a shoulder pad with greenstuff and made molds of these. Then I casted and painted a bunch of these. I don't like the shoulder pads made by Lego very much and prefer some solid ones. The casted versions do their job pretty good. Also I've made some Heavy gunners with 3-dimensional (not printed) vests and pouches. There is more to come. Right now I'm working on a Satchel for the Snowtroopers. Maybe I'll offer to do comissions of these later on. Feedback is very welcome.
  6. Usually I only sell the completed Minifigures. But I've made exceptions to that rule in the past. Depends on what parts you need, how many and if painted or not. I suggest just contact me via Email and we can talk about that. My adress is RomeVox@web.de
  7. Thanks very much for your feedback, Game over man! I hope I can help. PS: Your username is great!
  8. Review: 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium

    Great review! Thanks, JackJonespaw. I think the imperial Shuttle is a great new lego model. But what I still don't get about it: Why is the basic color of this toy white? It's clearly light grey in the movie. I don't get it. I would have loved to read something about this in your review. I think I'll wait for the next version. Hopefully this will be grey.
  9. No problem, KillKen. Contact me whenever you're ready. My email-adress is RomeVox@web.de.

  13. Hail our new overlords!

    Well, that was about time! I feel proud to be a member of Disneybricks! I love the new design of the main page. That's my thing exacly! I'm working on a new Lego custom theme that will link my colonial Marines figures to the DisneyTM pricesses. As soon as this is complete I will change my Avatar to a less violent and less military picture.
  14. I hate these situations too. Usually I don't have many minifigure parts on stock. I bricklink them when needed. So if a seller needs weeks to get the order ready for shipping, that is something that makes me real mad. Yeah, they get more detailed with each new wave. But also more work intensive with each wave. Last week I've build some new Minifigures - 5x Hicks, 5x Hudson. It took me an entire week to make them. From the first step (usally casting the armor and helmet) to the last step (usally writing the name on the front of the armor) it is a long way. I've never tried to make that writing on Vasquez armor because I thought it would be much to small for me. Recently I've tried some indication of it - you can't read the exact letters - and it worked nice. Whoops - new standart - one more workstep for her in the future. My girlfried studied your Flickr page a few hours ago and was totally amazed by your pictures and dioramas. The words she used to talk about your work made me feel like the worst MOC builder in the world when I heart them. So don't get any better! I like your idea about the working LED shoulder lamps. Looking forward to it. If you need to drill some holes into the lamps - go ahead - I can send you new ones whenever you want. I had the idea to do pics of some figures in the light of a blue LED to make their Glow in the dark color of the shoulder lamps shine. I really should try that.
  15. Great! I'm looking forward to it. I've been out of the whole Marines Project for a few month, because I had some other stuff to do. Now I'm back, making more troops. The newest wave of figures I'm shipping right now:
