Chewie, I totally agree with you on the Rose figure. It has a lot of potential for "army building." I like what you are doing with the buck and look forward to seeing some other iterations of this figure.

Thanks guys - and I think Rose is actually the best figure from the wave, and probably my favorite (well, Luke might be my favorite because it's old man Luke finally, and he's a damn good figure other than his hands tend to fall out of the socket).

I appreciate the feedback everyone. :)

I really like that Bodhi Rook. I wish there were a generic body like that which was already the right color. I just don't want to have to paint the entire figure.

Thanks, and yeah I wish they'd just make Bodhi properly! They should release him in the TVC line.

Also, I might be taking a stab at making a somewhat large custom vehicle soon... something like this from The Force Awakens:

I really like this design, but am not sure where to start. Anyone seen a custom of this made before? I'm not going to try and replicate it completely, just general look and feel...

I'd build it in 3 parts: Sides and middle. For the middle, I'd build 3 of the outer walls, add all the interiors before adding the last wall. I'd have the floor and the side walls made from a strong material since they will have to carry all the weight.
