Message and links from one of the YahooGroups I am in. Fatvalentino, you will definitely want to check this out.

http://www.therpf.com/f10/studio-scale-tos-enterprise-11-25-feet-105319/

Co-incidentally,someone is ALSO building a 66 inch (half scale) version as well.

These guys are both truly artists.

MoMoney posted a Matty link in another thread. I found this there.

Green Lantern. Both kids and collectors will find tons of cool Green Lantern toys on the shelves this spring, including Green Lantern Movie Masters® (Wave 1 includes Hal Jordan, Tomar Re, Rot Lop Fan, and Naut Ke Loi) and six new Wal-Mart exclusive 2-packs that feature 3 ¾” figures paired with a Guardian of the Universe

I guess that means I have to do my OA playset now.

You should base it on the old Superpowers concept from toy otter's site, the one that incorporated the Phantom Zone rings!

Actually I have a design. Imagine a cylinder about 8" tall and 8" diameter cut in half vertically, then use half of it. A semicircle seating area looking down on the center for the Guardians or the GLs to sit in. The flat side folds down and the top then folds down from that. The Central Battery is mounted on this so that when it folds up it fits inside the semicircle.

The same layout minus the Battery could be used for the LSH, see any old Legion tryouts issue with the Legionaires sitting looking down on the candidates.

So, if you were going to make a playset from scratch, assuming you had the skills, what would it be?
Batcave? Fortress of Solitude? Titans Tower? Iron Man's Hall of Armor? Baxter Building? Danger Room? Something else?

Full on Star Destroyer Bridge, so you can have Vader looking out at the stars at the end of the long walkway, flanked by the recessed areas of the crew. Recreate the Bounty Hunter Scene and Force Choke Admiral Promoting from ESB.

According to Toyguru, all GL product will be on the shelves by May 1, and Walmart will be getting an exclusive set of 6 2-packs-6 GLs each with a Guardian. As much as it pains me to wait, I will until I get these so that my playset will fit the figures. I may also wait to see the movie, in case there is anything in it I want to use. Still, I would love to have it ready to just drop the figures in and take pics.

If you can locate a TPB of the old "Infinity Gauntlet" miniseries, there's a wonderful George Perez Avengers team portrait hanging in the hallway of Avengers Mansion at one point. Beast and Moondragon are pictured, so it must represent their late 70's lineup?

I love playsets, because I think just displaying the figures in a row can sort of overwhelm the viewer. Playsets focus the eyes, categorizes everything for the brain. I really like Casimir's set up. I think he uses enough pieces to make his displays look interesting and tell a story, but he doesn't use too much to make it look cluttered.

I tried making his Robin memorial using clear cases I found at Michael's. It was sold with misc toys inside that I'll probably give to some kids. It was only a dollar so I bought it.

Now my question - does anybody know of sites that have hi-res pictures of backgrounds from the animated series - anything from the Timmverse?

Also, has anyone ever tried making the daily planet globe? I really like how it looks.

Been kinda quiet here so I thought I would drop this in. Just posted it in the Cap A thread as a customizable option for a castle playset.

I almost forgot. Imaginext has a generic space base that they repainted for Green Lantern. The GL version has numerous accessories including a scale Lantern with a green LED in it that lights up.
