Don't be using the baby girl's (I'm assuming you have a daughter in addition to your son) table for your custom projects!! You'll only ruin that poor Disney table. HA!! I should talk! I've got some blue edged Little Tykes table in my garage that is now a custom table because I got paint on it!! Too funny!!

I can't wait to see how Rykrof will handle this new arrangement with Vader. Will he really betray his friend Kala?
I loved the dioramas you made for this entire arc and this chapter. The inside of the Imperial facility is great with the blood smearing on the floors and the way the lighting really sets the dark and creepy atmosphere. The aquarium tree piece looks like a thing you would find on Dathomir. I don't know why but my favorite image in this chapter is the Rykrof and Freelo first go out into the landing bay. The (painted ?) background just really adds so much depth to the scene.
Also is it just me or has Mubaas Fuuda put on some weight?
Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing the next installment.

I told her you make photonovels, and how you customize figures and create dioramas (Ok, I really told her you take pictures of figures and sets you made). Shockingly, she asked to see them and we read this entire chapter, even pausing on several of the frames so she look at them closer. At the end she said she liked it and "if the Star Wars movies would look like this, I'd actually watch them". I laughed, and she went on to say "they should get him to help with the next one, and film it like this".
Jodo wrote:No problem man! I was pleasantly suprised she wanted to as well! You do excellent diorama and custom work! And actually I also keep my public toy talk to a minimum as well. I just now have started posting every once in a while on FaceBook about anything Star Wars or action figure related!

Lance Quazar wrote:At this point, it seems redundant to keep praising the extraordinary technical aspects of your story, but, once again, they are absolutely second to none with spectacular dioramas and an extended cast of extraordinarily creepy undead customs.
Lance Quazar wrote:This is another awesomely cool action-packed episode with a fantastic, killer twist at the end!!! Wow, I did NOT see that coming with Vader and the tracking device. Just when you thought Rykrof's life couldn't get any worse!!!
I'm not sure what the plan is with Vader/Palpatine and the relic, particularly as it relates to Tylin. I can't quite recall all the details of the earlier chapters (should probably go back and read!) but will Tylin get "busted" by his superiors for trying to get the relic?
Also, Tylin obviously is the one holding Rykrof's family as hostages, but I'm sure Vader doesn't see Tylin as any kind of threat or obstacle, he can just swoop in and grab the family from him if/when necessary.
Lance Quazar wrote:I do hope that Rykrof is going to swing that shuttle around to grab his friends! Or maybe his plan is to lead Vader on a goose chase? He's probably just still figuring it all out at this point. Wow, can't WAIT to see how this crazy turn of events unfolds.
Lance Quazar wrote:I think the zombies here were a fun addition to your universe, but I really do respond more to the other kinds of cool story twists that you - and you rolled out a doozy in this episode. Really terrific.
That said, the zombie story was very well told and made sense in the larger framework of your universe. I really dug the Badoo Corba angle. And seeing Mubbas as an undead was a priceless cameo!
Lance Quazar wrote:Just a few small critiques - I don't think you need to show the "Long time ago" and opening crawl at the beginning of every chapter. It feels pretty redundant.
These chapters aren't "BIG" stories like a movie. They are like TV episodes or chapters in a book. I think a crawl is appropriate at the beginning of each new "adventure" - but those larger adventures are broken up into small, digestible chunks. So I think it works to have a big crawl for the beginning of the entire story that is the relic/Tylin story. But I think you should wait until this storyline resolves and you're onto the next one before doing it again.
Lance Quazar wrote:I also think it was a mistake a few episodes back for Vader to have told his troops to "not harm" Rykrof. Now we know the reason why (and, as I said, it's a terrific twist!!!) but it seems like this chapter would have been much scarier/more tense/exciting and more effective if we thought Rykrof was in greater danger. If, when Vader showed up, we were truly scared about what was going to happen. As it is, knowing Vader wasn't going to harm Rykrof took just a little of the tension out of the scene.
Lance Quazar wrote:Anyway, thanks again for another sterling chapter. This has been a great story so-far, the entire Tylin/artifact arc. I know I earlier said I wanted to see a more Imperial/rebellion-based story, but I am really enjoying this and I love that the twist is taking us in a very dark and interesting direction. Almost feels like "Breaking Bad" or something, which was a series of the character getting himself into worse and worse scrapes and just barely managing to pull himself out of them.
