We will also cover current news of the day, see if Chad and were able to actually find anything on the pegs, and hopefully get the entire outline finished this time out! Show Notes: Episode 71: Sith Fire 30 is back! Intro by Chad: Announcements by Shawn: 1. Do you have any questions you would like us to ask Hasbro when our Imperial Spy drops by the Hasbro Brand Team? http://www.imperialshipyards.net/SMF/index.php?topic=9298.msg175199#msg175199 https://www.facebook.com/234428276594079/photos/a.234438239926416.50366.234428276594079/708094942560741/?type=1&theater 2. Contest Wrap Up: We really saw a decent turn out for our latest Expanded Universe Custom Challenge: http://www.imperialshipyards.net/SMF/index.php?topic=9219.msg175019#msg175019 3. Hunter Knight Customs shares some safety concerns using sealants: https://www.facebook.com/notes/10152262311646365/ 4. Our friends at JTA and Banthaskull share some exciting rumors regarding the Black Series 3 and ¾ inch Line Ups: http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=13861 http://banthaskull.com/story/news_breaking_news_bantha_skull_spies_reveal_possible_new_3.75_figures 5. I got in my first order from Jrny Fan! (quick show and tell) Interview Questions: Part I: Individual Customs Basically guys we are just gonna take a peek at Dayton's Flick Album Page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sith_fire30/ and Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sith_fire30-Creations/121610277862687 and go from there. I think we leave ourselves a pretty strict limit of about 45 minutes at most as we are really starting to go long with these videos so I would like to keep it at that. Chad you are really gonna have to watch me as I could spend hours and hours talking about this work. I would also like to perhaps go back and take a quick look at some of his SW Customs here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sith_fire30/sets/ Mainly that awesome Darth Malgus (I can't remember how many head sculpts you had for that one, but I remember it being a lot!) The future for Sith Fire 30? Getting back to finish up any SW Customs or start some new ones? Gonna start any REBELS characters? Part II Custom How Too/ current events: If we can use about 30 minutes to get into this that would be great! 1. Could you describe (or even show a bit if you would like) your process of whittling an action down to the skeleton form to then build back up? And then maybe a bit about that process? 2. Dayton, could you show us some of your tools and products you find you use a lot while customizing and perhaps describe them a bit? I know folks would love to see this! 3. Is there any customizing technique you could show us in a few minutes on video (like your wonderful painting of faces or eyes or molding or casting)? Heck anything by you would be wonderful. " I do plan on making kits of some of my work and sell in limited quantities - stay turned for more news on that" Lets hear more about this! 4. Whats on the pegs which is a rather quick question nowadays. Dayton, have you found anything of note? Questions below are if we have time: 5. New Star Wars Products coming out that have you excited? Dayton how do you feel about the current state of Star Wars Collecting? How do you feel about the SW Black Series 6 inch line up? (I saw your review about the new Biker Scout and Speederbike and got excited) Hits and misses in that line so far? Things to come? 3 and ¾ inch figures coming out you are liking? What did you think about that new SW Training Luke? The Training Yoda? http://www.takefiveaday.com/2014/07/13/the-state-of-the-toy-business-2014-hey-is-that-a-cliff/ 6. Lets talk a little REBELS if we have time. How do you feel about it so far? Do you see yourself getting into this show as much as TCW? Why or why no...
