    One of my early ideas was to use a vintage R2 with the clicking head, for aligning WeeGee's "disk drive." I have a handlebar from a speeder bike that I was going to use for one of his arms. The Cat, where can we see your customs? Can you think of think of something I can use for his "big arm"? I have an 8t88 w/ removable head that I want weeg to be able to hold.

    Like I said, I generally confine my customs to POTF2 parts. The speeder bike handle is a great idea for the small arm, but Weeg had a human-like hand, remember. What might make a good "big arm" is Momaw Nadon's rocket launcher thing. It's shaped something like this:

    ========[][][]======[][][][][][]====
    // //
    // //
    ========

    With a few swipes of an Exacto knife it coulde easily become this:

    ========[][][]======[][][][][][]====
    // //
    // //

    Like I said before, I have yet to scan my figures and post them somewhere, but I'm working on it.

    what do you mean, up?

    the idea with the 3PO hand worked great, thanks! I'm glueing the hand to the arm and glueing the arm straight.

    O...kay then, I'm still getting used to board-speak.

    For my advanced math class, I'm making a 3-D model of Morgan's house! I have complete blueprints, so it should be pretty easy. I'm gonna try to make it in scale with 4" figures, so my customs will fit in it! I'll keep you posted on the progress.

    Glad to hear it worked! And that's whole 3D thing sounds cool.

    Still no progress as far as posting my figs, though. Maybe I should go off to Geocities right now... I think I will.

    Does anybody know what kind of scale I should use for the house? I was going to use an enlarged blueprint, and make it 1 inch=4 inches, but then the house would have to be about 3 feet by 3 feet. I guess it'll have to be, though.

    Top 10 Reasons Why Kyle Is Better Than Luke...

    1. Yoda doesn?t rap his knuckles.
    2. He still has his right hand.
    3. His ship is named the Moldy Crow.
    4. He didn?t kiss his sister.
    5. His nicknames don?t include "Wormie."
    6. He wasn?t raised on "a grubby sixth-rate farm on a tenth-rate planet."
    7. He killed (count ?em) six Dark Jedi.
    8. He doesn't even bother with turning Dark Jedi from the Dark Side.
    9. His last name is the same as a predator from Kashyyyk.
    10. His novel trilogy includes pictures.

    After all this time, I just now read through this thread. Its awesome. I enjoyed reading all the posts.

    I don't know much about Kyle, just the stuff from the Graphic Novels and information books. I don't know the story behind DF or MotS. I'll have to read that KK timeline, or look them up on TimeTales.

    I don't know what I can bring to this thread as I'm not a real big Kyle Katarn fan. He's cool, but I'm sure everyone else here is a bigger fan than I. I'll stick around and read all the posts though and add what I can.

    BTW, in the upcoming WotC RPG supplement "Secrets of Tatooine" there is going to be a thing about Sand Wampas. Maybe Wampas are kind of like Banthas, they have been transported to many planets and have become feral. That could explain the Swamp Wampas in the game.

    Glad to see you hear, new members or visitors are always welcome.

    As for the sand wampas, swamp wampas and snow wampas, they must have been transported to other planets, in which case they evolved into diffrent types. The same was as the tauntauns.

    And Banthas. But Banthas were transported for a reason.

    Maybe Rancors too? The one on Tatooine, Takara's, and the originals on Dathomir?

    Don't forget the "Rancors that run freely in the Ottethan forests."

    All right, boys, I got a question for you...

    Where can I get a good program to transfer BMP files to JPEGS? I tried to post pic on my website(!), but it's been 2 or 3 years since I had an HTML class, and I forgot about the whole JPEG thing.

    If you have paint, photo house, or adobe, then just open the bmp file, save as, and then choose jpg instead of bmp. If you're on windows that is.

    I've nearly completed what I think is an excellent Kyle story, but I can't post it on the boards yet.

    Well, I was goofing around before work today, and I finally managed to post a teeny tiny Jerec custom just before I had to leave. It's not a thumbnail, and the image is minisucle, but here goes...
