A Star Wars USB Drive - <em>Box, Case, Tape, Tin, Frame, Figure &amp; Cover</em> Thread...
Time

Came across an old Kenner figure template of old earlier today, thought it may be an idea for storing a USB drive full of Star Wars projects - or an external drive…

Buy a cheap acrylic display case for single Star Wars kenner / palitoy figures from ebay (or similar) for around $3/4…

and use a template like this for whatever content you are going to store on the USB / external drive…

Original sized 1795x2719 image can be found here - https://i.imgur.com/OteQAOU.png
 

Then fill in the black space with, for example, an adywan image or logo, or Despecialized image, 4K release, or just a Star Wars image you like (or leave it blank of using an external drive).

Cut the template to size of the display case - and you have a cheap custom-made storage display case for your Star Wars projects / films etc.

The 1 thing I want in Star Wars Battlefront (or some other future Star Wars FPS)’:- (by HelloGreedo)

^ the man makes a good point (yet again) - it would be great to have map mods back in Star Wars FPS games - especially beneficial for replay value and longevity - and y’know… fun.

Non Star Wars toys thread
Time

Subbuteo for me - was given a team of Liverpool players, a generic team for the opposition and made the rest up (pitches, goals, corner flags etc) out of whatever I had to hand or could use my imagination on. Doing a few household chores etc got me a few pennies so later bought a goal and a ‘proper’ pitch.

The rich kids had stands, and floodlights, multiple & special edition teams, refs, trophies etc - though always thought they lost out on something not using other fun non-subbuteo stuff first… 😃

All that went out of the window after this one Christmas…

Doctor Who

An interesting bit of Chris Eccleston talking about his time on Doctor Who on BBC Radio (3 mins long)…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dr_OEqbGu2w

 

There may be more insights and info on his time as The Doctor, when his memoirs comes out next year…

‘Actor and former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston reveals he is writing his memoirs’:-

How is BBC America doing with the screening of the new Doctor Who series now? Is it still full of adverts and interruptions?

The ‘Video Game Movie Edits’ thread may be of interest mate - it’s an older thread but it checks out 😉
 

These older projects may also be of some use (for ideas, info and software etc), hopefully…

I agree with this, which I why I didn’t want to cut the whole scene. Luke’s milking the alien for me is enough to suggest his connection with nature and the force. The shot of Luke actually drinking it with the scornful look on his face (as if he was deliberately trying making Rey uncomfortable) felt a little too strong to me. Rey was already uncomfortable, so, for me, the purpose of the scene is already achieved without having Luke rub it in her face.

I took Luke’s scowl itself ss a ‘much to learn you have’ / ‘unlearn what you have learned’ type message - the realisation that he is now giving those lessons to someone young, naive yet willing… as once Yoda gave him - though you’re right, it is quite a strong look from him to that already uncomfortable Rey.

A difficult choice to decide / cut - though you’ve given yourself some quality possibilities…

Going away? Post so here!

^ You were missed by a fair few of us a while back mate - I’d say you’re a popular member around here, and people are glad you’re back posting.

Though like it was at the beginning of this site starting up 15+ years ago - all are welcome; it’s one of the most endearing qualities about this unique place 😃

Some will leave, some will come back, and everyone needs a break now and then - yet we’re still here strutting our stuff. I never thought we’d get over the likes of HotRod, Rikter, Bossk, ricarleite, sean wookie, JediSage, Nanner Split, motti_soL, Darth Chaltab, Gaffer Tape, and Shim et al not posting as much - yet in time we did… and then again… and then again…

Can only echo ChainsawAsh - both seamless and well done. Personally, I’m a fan of the milk drinking scene - for me it’s part of Luke demonstrating the Force (the nature of it; in the cycle of life and nurture - along with the fishing) to a somewhat uncomfortable Rey. Though this is your Edit mate - go with what you feel is right for what you’re striving towards with it.

Looking forward to seeing the finished Edit 😃
