    It's rubberised but very solidly so, it's much harder than minidoll hair for example. I'd never have even considered that hairpiece based upon the preview image on FST, looks far too much of full-bodied symmetrical cut on their site, it's not until I saw it on a figure that I realised how asymmetrical and effective it was for Cara Dune.

    So here are some updates to Mon Mothma, Cara Dune and Asajj Ventress. Although the new skirt piece matches Mon Mothma's old torso very well, I didn't like the disconnect between the creases of the gown, so felt it needed a belt to blend the torso and skirt piece more smoothly. I know she never wore one, but I'm going with a bit of artistic licence here, besides I'm sure all women agree it's important to always enhance your waist line in any outfit haha. This is a Si-Dan tactical belt that I chopped off the gear clips and filed them down to be completely smooth, all that's left is a lovely regal belt for the senator (it's got some nice moulding to it in person that I'm not sure is too visible on the photo). Cara Dune finally has a hairpiece I'm pretty damn satisfied with thanks to a custom available from Firestar Toys (thanks to an instagram picture I saw of someone using the same hair piece for the Second Sister and credited where the hair came from - https://www.firestartoys.com/Shop/Minifigure-Parts/Minifigure-Female-Hair/47175-Minifigure-Hair-Short-with-Sweeping-Fringe.html). And Ventress with new arms and skirt piece.

    Yeah it's this one that I'd been using coloured black with a permanent marker. Works very well for her, glad it's now officially being released in black:

    MOC Cyberpunk/SW Room

    Wow that's magnificent! The Fallen Order-esque terrarium is absolutely gorgeous. Makes me think of Level 1313 of Courscant from the Clone Wars or Nar Shadaa from Dark Forces 2 and The Old Republic!

    MOC: Hologram from Home

    Absolutely stunning, wonderful work. Hope real Star Wars gives us a glimpse into the life of "Muds" again, it was literally my favourite part of Solo!

    For an MOC or to replace the head on the new FST figure? I think FST's one is great personally, especially the alternate side which the sly smile. But if you're making your own or want to replace that, about the closest I can think of would be the stern side of the new TROS Lando: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3626cpb2496&name=Minifigure,%20Head%20Dual%20Sided%20Black%20and%20Gray%20Moustache%20and%20Eyebrows,%20Lopsided%20Grin%20/%20Closed%20Mouth%20Pattern%20(SW%20Lando)%20-%20Hollow%20Stud&category=%5BMinifigure,%20Head%5D#T=C&C=88

    Lots of new arms available at Firestar Toys, ones for 501st and Boba Fett, along with my particular favourite release, Sabine Wren:

    Yeah, just a good old fashioned Sharpie, can't even tell upon close inspection that it's not printed in black (until you turn it over and see inside). They're from a Green Lantern figure and I erased the logo, they're actually slightly off in terms of colour, face is nougat and arms are dark nougat, but there doesn't appear to be any black short sleeved nougat arms available yet. Hoping FST may release a pair with her tattoo like they did with Griff Halloran, but they're fine placeholders for now, you can't really tell the difference in tone unless you're really looking for it under bright lighting (besides I'm sure my actual arms and face are tinted differently in the real world haha). They do have the Brickarms one in stock at FST and it's £2.50 (it's listed as a bolt-caster): https://www.firestartoys.com/Shop/Minifigure-Weapons/Brickarms-Guns/39857-Brickarms-~-Bolt~Caster-~-Black.html

    Lego SW encyclopedia in April: is it worth it ?

    My boy's 10 and really enjoys the books and it was his birthday last Friday so this was a slightly late bonus present, so it was a worthwhile purchase for him to enjoy flicking through, he often finds ones that he thinks are cool and wants me to track down and add to his collection. But if it wasn't for him, I'd totally have waited for Bricklink!

    Lego SW encyclopedia in April: is it worth it ?

    Ok so just got hold of the book... a few weird random observations. It goes as far as The Rise of Skywalker, but only a few of its figures are included. Although TROS figures were released in October, it still features the hideous old visor-less pointy-nosed Scout Trooper helmet as its representation of the Scout Trooper even though it was replaced with the new helmet in April? It has the new Stormtrooper helmet, yet only the old Sandtrooper helmet, even though it came out January last year. No Mandalorian material, Resistance (other than a picture of Vonreg's TIE on General Leia's page), Sandspeeder pilots, Freemakers or Battlefront's Inferno Squad. Page 14 calls a battle droid a "clone commander", page 29 says "imperial symbol" instead of "republic symbol" and page 129 says "imperial uniforms come in black, dark and light grey, dark and light tan, and blue..." (in reference to officers, not troopers), I'm sorry when did the last two happen? Come on, proof-reading guys! It's a nice enough update and the Crimson Dawn Maul figure is a lovely little guy (great to have a new and important Solo figure with movie-exclusive prints, although would have probably preferred Dryden Vos if given the choice since Maul's had so many figures at this point), but feels like it really rushes on the more recent material from 2019 with some bizarre omissions. Would have really liked Freemakers in there, not that we watch the show or even collect them, but as a Lego production would have liked them to have included some insight into a few things like how they designed the characters and basing the Tracker 1 on a TIE Phantom etc in their little vehicle feature sections.
  13. An even better and more appropriate pilot is currently on sale at Firestar Toys for those who plan on making one of these Christmas X-Wings: https://www.firestartoys.com/Shop/Custom-Design-Minifigures/FireStar-Customs/50250-Custom-Minifigure-SW-MisElto-Antwine.html

    Oh I personally don't mind on account of the fact that the only FST customs I've bought have either been characters that'll now very likely never be made by Lego (Jaina Solo, Kyle Katarn and Iden Versio in her unzipped rebel flight-suit) and uniformed Imperial characters (Thrawn and Gideon) that I can just use the cheaper real Lego torsos (if made) on other Imperial officers to bulk up our ranks, such as my real TLG Thrawn torso here as "some other grand admiral" wearing CMF chef legs in the officer's mess of the Conveyex whilst the expensive, accurately ranked and more detailed FST Thrawn enjoys being at the Emperor's side in his throne room:
