Well, I'm working on this relationship I have with the digital camera...and so far it's pretty much love/hate. Razz It's an auto focus...which means its focusing on the wrong things! And my lighting is still not exactly what I want. It may be a while before I work out the bugs. Rolling Eyes

OMG!! That is SO FUNNY!!! I just sat & laughed. My son Patrick leaned over to see why I was turning purple and wheezing. He thinks they're funny too, but doesn't have the over-the-top reaction I do!

I had to get a Kleenex (and yes, every box is marked "Thanks-send more"). I am in TEARS!!!

Oh, THANK YOU for that laugh! More, PLEASE!

Hugs,
Kat (pat)

Thanks, gang! Glad I could bring a smile! Very Happy

Gerda...to be honest, most of the paints are for craft purposes these days. I used to paint quite a bit...but that has been a while ago now. Though I know I should return to it, I can't seem to get there. But life is as it is...perhaps someday.

Hi Fandango!

Glad to see you're back in the game! Great ideas again! The first one with action figure Jack - HARLAN! Laughing

And the second one with searching for Black Ops Carter. Wonderful!

I don't see anything wrong with the lighting, especially the third picture with the real sun spots is really good.

Hope you'll figure out your camera completely till the end of August!

I love the action figure story!!!......made me laugh so much - my sides ache!! Thanks for that, I needed a good laugh!!
Keep it up great work.....you must figure out your camera by the end of August!!
It's a pity you don't have time for painting at the moment.....maybe you will be able to in the future. I do some watercolour painting....but they always end up in the bin as I'm never happy with how they turn out - maybe I should keep one or two of them rather than throw them away!!
Keep on clicking away at those action figures and tell us another story soon!!!

Luv & hugs
Hilary xxxxx

Kat, these are especially for you, since you seem to love "Urgo" so much:

At first, it is Jack alone at the table:



Then Daniel, Teal'c and Sam join him:





Some of these cakes I made out of FIMO (plasticine which can be hardened in the oven), others are from my little toy shop. The "Jello" are small pearls and some of the glasses always fell over... that was no fun!

Yeah, sorry, this could not be carried out since I was devoid of the other soldiers that run into him when he comes back Laughing

But the pumpkin pie is there, can you see it? It is slighly raised above all the others, just as in the episode. Especially the first shot is exactly like seen in TV.

Fandango, I only made the highly raised pumkin pie piece, and the three from the first shot that are on plates. I tried to match the exact color. The powder sugar on them is real powder sugar I added at the end. We also matched where on the table which color of Jello stands - the green, the red and the blue. I actually did make screen shots beforehand so we could do it properly.

Apparently Daniel having his hands under the table and having nothing to eat is what it looked like, too - a friend of me who is a huge Daniel fan paid special attention to that. I only noticed when I afterwards looked at the pictures. I also wonder why Jack is contemplating his spoon so much in that one picture Laughing

Astra, I LOVE the scenes! I do have a fixation with "Urgo", since it combines my favorite things: SG-1, comedy, and pumpkin pies. Jack turning back to grab that one last bite of pie had me on the floor (literally) laughing.

Was Jack looking down because he dropped a piece of pie in his lap? ^_^ He almost has that expression!

Keep up the EXCELLENT work!

Another good explanation! Laughing But actually he was eating joghurt at the time the other joined him. Even despite he actually hates joghurt. That's why we put this cup in front of him, rather than a piece of cake.

Of course I see this *chuckles* You think I post pictures in here and then don't care what you all have to say about them? Wink In fact, after I posted some, I rush in here every five minutes to see whether somebody wrote something Embarassed

Thank you to all that respond so kindly all the time! Glad to make you happy!

Yes! I noticed that little attention to detail immediately, which was what made me think you were heading toward that shot of him coming back for more.

Ah, well, once you get more soldiers for your cast, perhaps O'Neill will have his extra piece of pie! Laughing

mysteryknitter, that is the best feedback I ever got!

How about some golfing? Wink

Hammond: "Colonel, what the hell are you doing!?!"



Jack: "In the middle of my backswing!!!"

*Astra helps Fandango to get up from the ground*

I found them here: http://the-special-shop.com/EN_shop.asp?shopneu=

Go to the link "miniatures", then to the link "shopping by themes", and if you then go to the link "hobby" there is another link "sports" beyond that, and that's where I found it. And while you are there, look at all the other goodies. There is a weigh lifting bank and even a locker and also a billard table for Sam... but all very expensive! But I couldn't resist the baseball set.

Quote:

While there are also golf bags and even golf carriages (also very expensive) at this page, this bag is selfmade: My friend had bought new headphones for the long travel to me, and they were in a bag, which she wanted to throw away actually. But being the MacGyver she is, she just rolled it up in a way that resembles a golf bag - and saved me money!

*Smile* No challenge at all! Because, we already did that. If you have some time, just go back all the pages of this thread and you'll find many more nice things! Here is my original post from one year ago:

Astra wrote:
My friends visited me last weekend and we did a few nice settings. And we had so much fun that evening! They really got the hang of it.

I have to work on the pictures a little yet, the backgrounds etc. but I just couldn't wait to share with you so here are the first ones:

This was an idea of one of my friends, and it turned out so awesome! She wanted to let Jack and Teal'c juggle like in the episode "Window of opportunity". We made the signs at the slate just like in the series. The books were made out of cardboard.

Daniel also got a mug onto his table.

At first only Jack is juggling and Teal'c still learning with the book, but then are both juggling.

Enjoy! If you like it I will post more of this stuff.

Astra, at first I was wondering, "Why didn't she just make some real jelly (jello in USA) and break it up and put it into the tiny glasses?" But as I kept reading, you said you are no good at cooking, so I guess real jelly is out of the question. Wink

hmmm......now I want jelly!! LOL!

LOL Laughing Denise, guess what? This simple solution did not even occur to me! Of course, why not just use the real stuff? *headdesk* Next time I'll ask you for advice beforehand!

But, the answer to this would be - we rather ate it ourselves Smile We did indeed have red and blue jello (real American Jello) this time. The red brought a friend (apparently it is easier to get red than blue one) and the blue was the rest of the packages desertblossom kindly had brought to England for me. I kept one package for this year, since some people could not attend last year and I wanted them to taste "real" blue Jello as well.

You know, we have red and green jello (no real Jello) in Germany, but no blue one. Just a few weeks ago I got another "care packet" from America, so next year's blue Jello is alreaday saved!

Here are two pictures of 2007:

Laughing Laughing Laughing That's really great Astra!!! Thank you for including the original pics. Ok, I'll have to look back on this thread and see if I can come up with a challenge for you!!! Wink Laughing
I wish that we could get blue jello here.....I tried it once when we were over in the US years ago - and I really liked it!!! We can only get red, green, yellow (pineapple would you believe?!?!?), orange and purple jelly here, and it isn't very nice at all!! Now you've got me started Rolling Eyes .......I want to eat blue jello now!!!! Laughing

Hi Astra!

What's the big attraction with blue Jell-o?


Simple answer to a complicated question (or would that be complicated answer to a simple question?): Blue Jello = Stargate. We have seen Sam so often eating it (while Jack seems to prefer red one). And since everybody wants to be as near to his heroes as he can (others buy themselves complete SG-uniforms including weapons) - we liked to taste blue Jello at least once! Plus one always wants to have the things one can't have, yes? The grass is greener on the other side, or something like that?

And, surprisingly enough (which you can't say for all sweets coming from America) - I liked it! It was not too sweet, and had a nice taste.

So, it has become a ritual of our coming together once a year - playing with puppets, and eating blue Jello.


What were you trying to do with your list of flavours, making me hungry? Laughing


BTW, if I dare to go OT for a little while: Here is a link to a short but very funny fanfiction, where the blue and red Jello play a big part for a - um, something Laughing Don't want to say more for spoilers. Got read yourselves!

Ages ago I told you about the first movie we had made. Now I can show it to you. You'll see Sam carrying the spider while the Ori-doctor looks at the X-ray, and then the spider escapes and runs over the table, and finally gets squashed under Teal'c's booth.

It's a very short scene, though.

LOL what did you do, watch in slow motion? Did you also see the skeletton falling from the table? I remember realizing this too late.

Anyway, if you wanna know what is possible, here is a very good movie with action figures - a very famous scene from the first Indiana Jones-movie. I was amazed when I first saw this because I don't want to know how long it took.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=_JwhRkF9-Xc

And here is another scene from the most recent movie, also very awesome:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Otkc6bcErgQ


So, this will be the next step we try to reach - you have to set your goals high, right?

There is a new smiley and when I saw it

I remembered that I also have this scene, it is from "Sacrifices", shortly before Ishta comes through the gate with the horses.



(I made the table tennis plate and also the paddles myself)

The plate of the table was easily made, and the net I just got from a shirt which had such net at a pocket. For the legs of the table I had help from my father, because I wanted to be able to turn them to make it flat, but on the other hand they should stay that way and not turn too far. He had an idea how to make that. I bought the wire in a shop. The paddles are just made from cardboard, with a bit red paper, and a bit wood where the hand grips it.

Here are some pictures that I haven't showed yet because I want to re-do them. It is supposed to be from "Fire and Water" where Jack played Hockey and then smashed Hammond's car window. Did you know Hammond had K.I.T.T.?!? Laughing

Since you all liked the K.I.T.T. so much, I want to go slightly off topic and show you the one I made myself only from cardboard and plywood years ago. I only had pictures and videos for references, but am very proud about the outcome:








The yellow lights I made out of a surprise egg and they can be moved:



Also the doors and roof windows can be opened, and I even can put different pictures into the little computer screens. And the steering wheel can be turned, and also the gear shift.







For those that want to buy the other model, here is a German website:

http://tele-movie-shop.de/product_info.php?products_id=12150

They also have the ghostbusters car or James Bond cars or the DeLorian from "Back to the future".

Recently I got a new co-worker, who is very young - young enough to still have lots of puppets stuff. So one day she brought it to work and we put on some clothes to Sam and Jack Smile These are very silly pictures, but that were the only clothes that fit.

Astra, what spectacular holiday scenes that you created. I love all
the little details including the Advent candles, the US postage stamps,
the tree with all the trimmings and the views of Jack's backside ( Laughing ).

I hope that you have a wonderful and joyous holiday season. Thank
you for bringing laughter and fun to this forum.

Holiday Hugs,
BarbaraBoo

Astra these are awesome.

The Santa hat is to big for Sam but sooo cute Very Happy

The christmas ornaments and the lights are aewesome and the christmas socks.
Everything is wonderful and well done.

I'm glad they are decorating the three. I have not seen any Christmas tree in the series itself and I always thought why not it would have been need if they would have done a Christmas episode.

Thanks for this one Astra I enjoy it.

Gerda.

... that is why Jack has to use a ladder Laughing

This is a regular mini-tree I have for years now, there are even electrical candles on it. Since I spent Christmas with my parents and brother, I don't bother to make a real tree myself, but this little one is at least something.

You're welcome! I have to give this back and say thanks to all the wonderful feedbacks of all of you. It would be only half as fun to post the pictures if there was no reaction.

So, I make you happy, and you make me happy! Works for me! Wink


And to let you all not wait any longer, here is the next batch - they are opening their gifts now:




Jack got: beer, fishing rod, golf clubs, and fish cans



Sam got:

microscope, necklace, poetry book, toolbox



Teal'c got:

a sled (you can see it better in the picture with Daniel, though), Enterprise model, space-shuttle model, baseball club with ball and glove



Daniel got:

book, computer, chess board, Egyptian statue

Fandango, great to see you're playing again! And so many little Christmas trees, it's wonderful.

Many thanks also for all the nice comments to my pictures. And yes, that is Schroedinger indeed!

Thank you, ladies!

Astra, the gang's all there! Made note of those yummy cookies, too! Even the serpant guard is in the holiday mood....

You know, sometimes I wonder why they chose the expressions they did for the figures. Most of the have a "neutral" look, but poor Cam looks like someone has just dumped hot coffee in his lap! Shocked Laughing Poor guy, maybe he needs some 'spiced' eggnog. Wink

Astra,
Thank you for sharing these very clever miniatures with us! You always impress me with the amount of time and effort you put into them.

I just wish the actors could see them. Hey, maybe they are here enjoying these little scenes with us? Wouldn't that be wonderful? I just wish there was some way they could let us know. Yes, Rick, that is a big, huge hint. LOL

Warm hugs from sunny Arizona,
desertblossom/Brenda

Oh, didn't I tell you? Thought I shouted it out to everybody... I managed indeed to show them to Rick at Gatecon. Still debating with myself whether I went too fast and did not give him enough time to look properly, but I showed a whole album.

And I managed to totally confuse him with saying, "And this was the episode where Daniel lost his head..." Embarassed

Many thanks for the feedback!

Cold hugs from frozen Saxony... wait, that doesn't sound right Laughing

Astra,
You wicked girl! NO, you didn't tell me that you showed them to Rick. So, what was his reaction? Confusion for sure, but did he have anything to say? Something funny perhaps?

You sent me cold hugs? Hmmmm, I have to think on that for a minute before responding. *tick, tick, tick, ....*

Okay, I've got it! Please hold them until July or August and then send them my way. That's when I'll need them the most. Right now it is a cool 58 degrees and sunny here. Sweeeet! as Jack would say.

Lis, those pictures are indeed very nice! You gave them a real home!

mccormick, if you want to know how many different figures are out there so far just go to this site which has them all:

http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/store.asp?p=subcategory.asp%3FCategoryID%3D357%26SubcategoryID%3D384

You don't need to buy from this shop, though, there is forbidden planet which is in UK:

http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=6_4899&zenid=1222d5a2bcf5203e181bb6f6335b7422#activePage=search&searchTerm=Stargate&searchCat=&searchMode=term&pagerPage=1&pagerTotalItems=65

It would be nice if you'd join us in the fun!

A little present from me for shippers on Valentine's Day - Sam came home and found this waiting for her:







I just could not resist buying this little bathrobe!

Hi!

Today I played with puppets Wink These are the 12 inch figures, so far there are only Jack and Daniel out there. They have the same size as Ken from Barbie, so you can buy any cloths for them.

I have ordered some extra gear, and so I could send Jack diving!




I think I will have to give the diving gear a different color, though:







Then Jack took off his suit and put on a different one:







Some lifeguard started a conversation:



And at the end he even offered a ride in his beach car. Cool!

I like the hair on 12 inch Jack! and they sure made him buff!

But based on his grin, I think the lifeguard has ulterior motives. Wink

Astra!
Love the dive suits!!! Good lookin'! Wink
Well, I can understand the pink mask and fins, but yeah...pink tanks? Laughing Wink Very Happy Whatever one can find!!!

You inadvertently answered a question (a.ka. problem) I've had. I also purchased a 12 Jack and I love him...but he's had one little problem. They should have issued him a belt!!! His pants are tucked too tightly into his boots and, every time he bends over, he reveals a bit of butt crack. Shocked Confused Laughing So, I can safely loosen those boots, free the pants legs and pull those pants up! Thank you!!!

Thank you all! Glad you like them!

Fandango, yes, it is possible to loosen the shoelaces. Once I had them off there was no way to get the pants into the boots again, so I just put them above. As we also see in the show if I remember right.

And yes, if I ever come across a little belt I will buy it. I found grenades and black gloves and a tac vest already.


Here some more pictures (Daniel's pant legs are still in the boots, didn't touch them yet). What I love about those figures, that the joints are much more movable. Little Daniel never could bend his legs like this one!

Astra,
Thanks for the info. Yep, new figures means new items and more needed storage. But it looks like you're off to a good start on the props! Those burgers look good!
So the 12 Daniel seems a tiny bit thick in the face, compared to photos of Shanks. How does he seem to you (not photographed)?

Smiles,
Diana

I am back from a weekend full with friends, laughter and action figure theater. Can't wait to show it all to you!

Not sure if I should put up a hotness warning or something. Well, consider yourself warned!

Today we see the episode "Brief Candle":

Couldn't resist making the famous scene right after Jack and Kynthia had gotten very close. Kynthia fell asleep and Jack grabbed some cover:



I just love those little dog tags!



The next morning he had some kind of hangover and put his head into the well, to get rid of it:





Please note the detail we put into this picture - there was a jar standing at the edge of the well, and in the well were water lilys, and Jack just had putten down his sunglasses, you can see them next to his hand:

Believe it or not, at the Karl-May-festival I got little cowboy boots, made from leather, which actually where keyring-additions. I removed the keyring and they fit perfectly! LOL

Sorry I never answered this question. I only logged in at work, but did not have my figures with me there, to check for you. I admit, he might look a bit thick, but still you can clearly recognize him as Daniel. Overall, I'd say they both look much better than in the promoshots from DST.

That might be one reason, but not the only one Wink I like that they look so much more natural when you pose them right. A friend of me did Jack and Daniel laying on their backs, stargazing. Wonderful! As soon as I have the pictures, I'll post them.

So, because they have more joints, you can pose them much more natural.

The water lily including frog was a leftover scrapbook sticker I just had decorated my Vancouver photoalbum with (we had been at Maple Ridge, where they had shot "100 days", you know, Edora, Jack, paddling... I think I saw the lake where he threw stones into, and there were water lilies)

To all the others I have not quoted in this post - thank you for all the continuing feedback, I love it! I'll be back with more. Next Friday, to be precise. Since it is a very important day for my homecity.

I want to show you how General Jack O'Neill is briefing the new president about the Stargate programme. Please excuse that he went to the White House in his BDUs, the dress uniform did not arrive in time. I managed to find one at the internet, though.

Jack: [knocking] Knock, knock. Do you have a minute, Mister President?



Obama: [inviting] General O’Neill! Sure, come on in. How’s the fishing?



Jack: [jovial] I’m just on my way. But there are important matters I have to discuss with you first, Sir. I’m here to officially brief you on the Stargate programme.



Obama: Star- what?



Jack: The Stargate, sir. It’s an alien doohickey, a kind of round spinny thing, which…

Obama: Round spinny thing? Is that a technical term?

Jack: [shrugging] Not exactly. Carter could explain it so much better than I.

Obama: [wondering] Well, then why didn’t you bring her with you?

Jack: [wincing] Actually, I did, sir. If you please could help me with the backpack?



Sam: Colonel Samantha Carter reporting, sir!



Obama: [gaping]



Sam: [apologizing] Sorry, Mister President. There was an accident in Dr. Lee’s laboratory, which resulted in a massive case of…

Jack: [interrupting] He shrunk Carter.

Sam: [annoyed] I’m sure we’ll soon be able to reverse it. Anyway, this is a model of the Stargate. It’s made of naquadah, measuring roughly 22 feet in diameter and weighing about 64,000 pounds. It breaks down matter into patterns of energy and then…



Jack: [zoning out and only hearing technobabble naquadah technobabble subspace technobabble vortex technobabble Event Horizon technobabble wormhole]

Obama: [wondering] What is a wormhole?

Sam: It’s called a wormhole because…



Jack: [piping up] Oh please, not the analogy with the apple again!

Sam: [glaring] … it goes through space like a worm through an apple. It’s controlled with a DHD – that’s short for a Dial Home Device



Jack: By the way, Mister President, I have a present for you. It’s called a GDO. If you ever happen to be on the wrong side of the Stargate, just punch those numbers, and we’ll open the door for you.

Obama: Thank you, Jack, but I don’t think that will be necessary. How could I end up on the wrong side of the Stargate anyway?



Jack: [mumbling] Thor, old buddy, this is your signal. Take him for a ride!

Obama: [vanishing]



Jack: [suspicious] Just what else do you have in that bag of yours, Carter?



Sam: [blushing] Um, nothing, sir.

Jack: [insisting] Lemme see!



Jack: You have a doll? Of ME?!?



Sam: [trying to find a rabbit hole]

Jack: [bemused] I wonder if her getting smaller has been an accident after all.

That is a SCREAM!!! Where in the world did you find a President Obama doll??? TOO FUNNY!!!

I must admit I now have a VERY deep respect for those wonderful people who sew microscopic doll clothes!!! Trying to make BDU's for my "kids" with a standard sewing machine is a nightmare! I don't see how they manage those little sleeves on your dolls.

Mini Carter...my sides hurt...

Thank you!!

I stumbled about it by accident while looking for some stuff and clothes for my Jack. Just google "Obama actionfigure" and a lot of shops will turn up. It is around 70 dollars, though (I got mine a bit cheaper at ebay). But it is worth the money, there comes a lot of stuff with him.

Go here for seeing more nice poses of him and pictures of what is included (two pair of hands and a second head with a different expression, plus the flag you see in my pictures)

http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/the-obama-action-figure.html

You actually can find pretty much everything on the net, there are other presidents also, plus all James Bond actors... name it and you'll get it!

At the moment I am very tempted by those two Fireman-figures:

Fireman 1

Fireman 2

Look at all this stuff!

Yes, I was wondering how it goes! No way I could do something like that. The Obama jacket and shirt has miniature buttons and button holes. And also Jack's BDU has real pockets I can stuff his hands into.

Thank you all for the great feedback! This definitely was an exciting day for me. Because, I went into the city where the real Obama was visiting - you might have heard the name "Dresden" quite often in the news today. And I was photographed and interviewed by a lot of camera teams and photoreporters. They all loved the little figure Wink

Aaaaah, yes...Son P2 has introduced me to the Joys of eBay!! I have learned how to Google pretty well, too, helping do research on archaeological/historical papers...that's also how I found the little Daniel glasses and doll "skin" material. I never knew playing with dolls could be such fun (I didn't have any as a child, so am making up for lost time).

Thank you for reminding me... I forgot to put BUTTONS on Danny's BDU's! Sci-Fi Channel here ran AoT and Continuum last night, so I was trying to sew and watch the movies...

I was tempted for a short time to put bendable wires in the little dollies, so I could pose them, but decided against it, since I was sure I'd blow the whole thing. I have my hands full just drawing anyways, so I'll leave the cool stories and poseable stuff to the REAL expert!!

Keep it up...we love it, Astra!

I posted two "in progress" pictures on OT last night...one is also an "ad" for the UK & US Live Chats (on the "Bit of forum space"), and one is the other side of my Little Danny, (showing the Alpha patch on his BDU's) on the "What are you doing?" thread.

LOL!!!

I don't know what's funnier - your "unique" sense of humor and a shrunken Carter, or the fact that you actually have a President Obama action figure!

Thanks for the laugh. Smile

Oh boy. That was absolutely hilarious. It's started raining here and it's cooled down and it#s a bit miserable, but that certainly cheered me up. It was just what I needed. Thank you very much.

You all are very welcome! It is great to hear I made somebody's day.

I admit I worried a bit before posting. Because, while I want to show off funny pictures, I don't want to make fun of your president. That is a fine line I am walking here. So, I certainly hope I don't offend anybody with this kind of thing, and especially not the ones that are of different political opinion. It is only meant in a nice and harmless way.

Thanks for telling me! I hadn't enough time for all the OT stuff those past weeks, but I'll check it out.

This was only because I had to work with limited material, there is no 12" Sam so far, but I needed her in the story. Could have used a long haired and -legged Barbie body double, though Wink

Quote:
or the fact that you actually have a President Obama action figure!


As I said, blame it on the shop, that placed him between all the uniforms and hats and vests I was looking for. I don't think I will ever buy a Barbie Merkel, though (which is out there as well)

Banlu, I really don't think you can take me for the whole. In fact, some people might be offended to be compared with me Wink But I don't mind, and as Kate just said, I am UNIQUE, and I like that.

Well, actually not so unique. There are several other people out there doing "AFT" - that is the official term for action figure theater. When you want to see more during the time till Lis or I post new stuff, just check out our new community, there is also cookie theater. So much creativity in the world.

http://community.livejournal.com/action_tales/

And if that still isn't enough, go to Wraithfodder's LJ. I repeatedly crack up when reading her comments in between the pictures.

http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/tag/parody

There is a second page with more stories by her:

http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/?skip=20&tag=parody

I guess that should keep you busy for a while!

I always thought that having your very own action figure was supposed to be the ultimate in "cool". I wonder if President Obama is even aware of how very cool he has become? Wink

That is an interesting question to ponder. I always thought one needs to "approve" something like that? Do they have to ask the people they are going to make figures of? But maybe only his staff is deciding, like RDA's "staff" for the Gatecon DVD Wink

So it might be possible he never got to see it personally. Which is a shame, because it is really well made. I don't like the bobble head figures that are also out there. They look like a caricature. So maybe, he does not have to approve it and everybody can do what he pleases?

They have an advertisement poster at the moment in Germany, showing chancellor Merkel and some other politicans in only their underwear. Not quite sure what the last word on this topic was. What about the rights on your own picture?

There is also a Merkel Barbie out there, but I don't think I am going to buy that one Wink

Hey, you've posted pics you and several friends playing with the dolls, and another German started this thread - i think I'm getting a drift... or maybe it's just the German Stargate fans that are verrückt!

Well, if you put it that way - I can see a pattern Laughing The disease certainly is spreading, some of my friends want to have their own puppets now. And even their hubbies get in on the fun.

So, when do you start? Wink


I found some pictures of me and the Obama puppet in the net. As I said, I'm famous Wink

Do we have Sam/Jack shipper among us? This one's for you!

The famous scene from the episode "The Broca Divide", where Sam - um, tackled Jack Wink Notice her dog tags hanging down on his face! And he replied "It's time you go to a doctor, Doctor!"

Go to One Sixth Depot. I just took a search and there are three different designs:

http://onesixthdepot.com/cart/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=dog+tags&osCsid=347777d49fa2cb7d25a0803bc6b177d6&x=0&y=0

I went with the M&C Modern Dog Tags, because the other one was molded and the third WWII:

http://onesixthdepot.com/cart/product_info.php?products_id=12851

You'll also see the "Customers who bought this product also purchased" - the black wollen hat, and the desert uniform/hat - LOL, that was me Wink

I agree with you, the simplest things seem to work best, you don't need to have a perfect background or props, the more improvised it is, the more fun it is also.

Hope you show around that Teal'c in a cotton ball to everybody that visits you Wink

If I'm ever lucky again to get another personal autograph from RDA, I'm gonna show him what I recently purchased, a miniature hockey game (you really can play with it!) since he was so impressed by the foosball table. I bet he'll love it!

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

The weather in Germany right now is not what Summer should be like. So I wanted at least Jack to have a nice day at the beach!

So, Jack went diving, and apparently he encountered some octopus!



There also was a crab at the beach, making friends with some - replicator?!



How do you like the "water"? It was a t-shirt of one of my friends. We also had real sand and shells for the beach.



Jack had a beach chair with him, a cooler, an air mattress and also his fishing rod. Apparently he caught some fish, which was too big for the bucket!





And somebody had a funny moment and even put a mermaid into the water. The picture is a bit blurry, but I'm posting it to show you what kind of fun we have together, lots of people standing around the table and everybody having unique ideas. My friends rock! (And sometimes I only see the outcome at the pictures later, because I don't realize at the moment Wink )

I bought a dress uniform for my 12" Jack. It is from GI Joe actually. And it was a historic uniform, how they looked 40 years ago or so. So, I had to customize it a bit, to make it look recent. Me, who never sews. Amazing what little Jack can make me do!

So, I wanted to show what I did with it so far. It still needs name tag and medals yet, but at least he has two stars.

This is how it originally looked:



Jack as a whole with changed uniform:



I cut off the breast pockets, and I also cut off the other pockets, only leaving the flap of them, since at the real uniform they are no real pockets at all. I also cut off the fourth button so that there are only three, and I tried to sew the jacket opening into place, so that it would show more of the shirt beneath:

Before:



After:



The pant legs were too short, so I made them longer. There was an amount of cloth inside, so I opened the seam and let it out. For the crease not to be seen afterwards, I even ironed them! Imagine those little pants on my big iron board. Now I can say I ironed Jack's pants. Muhaha.

Before:



After:



I also added stars. Those are simple stickers which I just painted silver:

Anne, here are two links for you. But beware, quite expensive (and you have to customize it like I did).

This is what I bought. These are 40th anniversary uniforms, so the whole package looks like it used to look.

I know Wink But I thought there was not enough space for three on them and I didn't want it to look crushed. I should try out, though.

Anne, I'm afraid then you can wait forever Sad As far as I understand it, these figures are for boys to play with, so there are a lot of battle uniforms. Nobody thinks of girls who want them to just look nice Laughing

The cutting off the pockets was not so hard, actually. You don't have to sew the collar if you don't want to. I could give you proper directions if you ever decide to tackle it! After all you are the reason I even started with those figures, so I never can't thank you enough for rising my interest.

Astra, if you ever need to make SG-1 (or any other) patches for your figures, using the iron-on T-shirt transfers for your computer printer works really well. I am able to get incredible resolution on mine. Just be sure and get the transfer paper made for DARK clothing. If you can't find it, and would like some, e-mail me and I would be happy to mail it to you. It should work in any inkjet printer.

I know what you mean about sewing teeny clothing! I'm learning more & more every day. Eventually I may even get good at it!

Due to my bad eye sight I won't ever sew tiny clothes - I can't even sew normal stuff without screwing upt Surprised But that's okay. I need the dark clothes iron on stuff too though for the patches on my green flight jackets for Jack and Daniel doll. Just been too busy looking for it yet.

It's been a long time since I had time to play with the dolls. I recently got some barbecue food and a grill for them. However the grill is doll house size so it's too small and only goes with the little action figures. But there was another grill with the food which works if I put it on a table. Now i need deck furniture so the guys could have a proper barbecue Smile

Anne, I just found the solution for your problem on Gateworld! Soon a very nice suit is coming out


http://www.vikingplayground.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=2419



and you also can buy insignias, I did not know that.


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250354589696



You only would need to add the medals to Jack's chest, then.


And Kat, that is a great idea with the foil! I hadn't thought of that. Somebody recommended me this jacket but I have not bought it yet.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=280240319368

But of course it would need the SG-patches! Do you have a link or something, with the images?

Well, I think we are straying a bit OT now here, since this thread originally had been about the finished pictures. How about making a new one, we could talk more about our ideas and how to make things in there? And help each other? I'd like that!

^_^

The company's website is:

www.pariscorp.com , and if you have questions about the product,
www.myprintworks.com

I just went to Google Images and typed in SG-1 patches. I then saved the images into my Paint program, and used the "sketch/skew" dropdown in the toolbar under "image" to reduce the image. I recommend doing it no more than 80% at a time in order to keep the image sharp. I can't remember how many reductions I had to make...it depends on what size you need. Test it out on regular paper first, and be sure to use as much of the transfer paper as you can, because once you trim out the patches, you can't run the paper through the printer. I filled my page with the SG-1 patch, the Alpha patch, and the USAF patches. They can be stored in the envelope until you need them.

If you have trouble buying the paper, let me know.

Kat

Just a little something since I didn't post in a while. It is no real AFT, but cute nonetheless. While we were playing with the 6" figures, the 12" Jack and Daniel were laying around. I did not pay attention, and was surprised to find that a friend had arranged them into some very nice positions. You can say what you want about those faces that really do not look very well, but the clothes and that the joints are much more movable, do make them look more "real" than the stiff little ones (which have the better faces, though).

The cowboy boots Daniel is wearing are actually from a keyring (I bought two of them and removed the key ring). They fit perfectly!

Astra,

Thanks for sharing the pics! Those are great boots Daniel's wearing. I like the detailing on them.

There's another thing about the 12 inch figures.... With the cloth uniforms, they're kind of huggable. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Glad you posted. Glad to know you're okay out there. Sometimes folks go for awhile, you sorta wonder........

Hugs,
Diana

Oh, sorry you were worried about my well-being. Yes, I'm here, just busy as always Wink (still writing that con-report, I wonder if I will get finished till MTM)

But I admit, I went a little astray during the past weeks and became a "Torchwood" and John Barrowman-fan. Got totally hooked and ordered some figures. Maybe there will be crossover stories one day...

If you are interested, I also have a detail picture of the boots.



And I love your choice of words "huggable" - yes, that they are! If they only were a bit bigger... *sigh* Very Happy

I said it before, and I'll say it again...having to sew all those TINY little pockets and details for dollies sure makes me appreciate what those action figure seamsters do. I'm setting sleeves after languishing over that darn collar. Trying not to go NUTS!


Patches are the fun part though! Astra, were you able to find the printer transfer paper?

Lol!!! Yeah....

Well, we had a tramatic event at work today. One of my coworkers has had her SG1 figures living on a shelf. Today, she had to change desks. During the move, Daniel fell...and hit his head. I hate to say this, but his neck stem broke. Shocked Sad It sheared straight through. The ball is still in his head and the other is still in his neck.

Any suggestions? I might be able to pry the one ball out of his head...but the one in his neck looks pretty much in there. That would leave drilling a hole in both and maybe inserting a pin / rod of some sort...unless you have a better idea.

Good grief. Poor fellow. And here he thought he was safe residing in an office. Confused

Ooooooh! Poor Daniel! He just can't stay out of trouble, can he?

You have the right idea with drilling a hole. You *can* use Super Glue (the gel kind for all surfaces), but it's best in conjunction with a little dowel.

*cue the MacGyver theme song* Use a round wooden toothpick, preferably undyed, so the glue can seep into the wood and help strengthen the bond. You can nip it to size with wire cutters. Brace the doll while drilling, so he doesn't wobble. Make sure and support the head once the pieces are pressed together, and secure it with small pieces of tape until the pieces set. I'd give it 24 hours, just to be safe.

I'm always breaking things, so I have a dremel, glues, and clamps. If I lived closer, I could have him fixed like *that*.

I haven't looked for it yet, but we have big warehouses, we are the capital of Saxony after all, so I'm sure I should have no problem finding something. You are right, the desert uniforms I bought need some patches.

What I would need though is a page where I can download the images in the right size, and maybe also an image which patch belongs where... I never was much interested in that kind of detail. Do you have a link that could help me with it?

Oh, poor Daniel! I had the same happen with Jonas. But I had bought a second Jonas to get his piece for the ring transporter. So I just glued the head on and gave the figure to a friend of mine, who is a Jonas fan, but not likely to play with him. For only standing at the shelf a stiff neck is okay.

But if you still want him being able to turn his head, then maybe I would suggest only a stick, without any glue? My father did this with one of Jack's hands which also had broken. Just like Rick he has a bit of metal now in his arm Wink But he still can move it.

I wish you luck with the surgery!

I have pictures of the patches, and just took them into Paint, reducing them in 80% increments (you go to Image, then Sketch/Skew, and type in the percentages). Because I don't know how large the sleeves are on your dolls, I can't say the sizes would match right from a download. I had to experiment with printed out sizes on regular paper, and holding them up to the sleeves to see which worked best.

I can send the pictures; e-mail me if you want me to do that, and show placement (I just did two sets on the new BDU's this afternoon, so I know how to do that!).

I don't think I ever posted these pictures before, or did I? If you already know them, I'll remove the entry. It is called "An ordinary day" and is so old that I didn't own the desert figures yet. They would have looked so much better.

So, Sam and Teal'c got caught by some Jaffa. (The Egyptian pillars I made out of kitchen paper rolls, BTW.)



Teal'c, the shol'va, got kicked with the staff weapon (in truth, puppet Teal'c always fell down)



But then somebody shouted, "Take cover!" and Sam went down as well, shielding her head with her hands. And Jack saves the day!



Teal'c is getting up and getting into some hand-to-hand action while Sam joins the battle as well.







But where is Daniel? The team expected him to be in the pyramid, but all they find is an empty sarcophagus.



Wait for the conclusion to this exciting two-parter!

Hello everyone,

Not long ago, I got infected with the action figure disease (blame Astra Very Happy) and totally fell in love with the miniature world. I very much enjoy arranging scenes, making little props and taking photos of the figures.

And since Astra has kept nagging at me to post some of my images, I have come here to show.

A few wallpapers for starters. Enjoy. Smile







Stay tuned. A long special series coming next. Smile

Hey Paya and Astra, these are great! Very Happy I never thought of doing art with my action figures, I think I'll stick to the "real" guys, but the banners sure look amazing!

I posted two of my mini figures in another topic and was gently reminded it was the wrong place to go since they were not travelling. Here are the links:

Thank you all for your comments. Here comes the promised series. I will be posting it in parts. Enjoy.

Garage series - part 1/9:


It's Jack's birthday. After a small celebration at the SGC, Jack comes home and there is a surprise waiting for him in his garage…



Okay, let’s see what’s inside.





Time for a knife…

I made it. Wink Well, not all, but a lot of it, like the shelves, the table, work bench that follows, clock, dartboard, knife, brushes, tent canvas, drink cans (one special will be coming next), the big old pot and cardboard boxes on the floor, stick-it notes, pencil... The rest is accessories to other toys, some of which I painted because they were plain one-colour plastic (like the fire extinguisher, ladder, axe, etc. As for the posters, I did a little research on the net, collected several that met my ideas, resized them and printed. I had a lot of fun making it all, and it took me a couple of weeks to gather all the stuff for this "set". Smile

I'm happy you have noticed! And right at the beginning, wow. You are very observant. Wink This is another thing I had a lot of fun with, keeping the time "running". Very Happy

So... let's go on with the story.

Garage series - part 3/9:


Okay, now I’m beginning to understand. You little devils.



Well, let’s get the show on the road.



Nice and easy…



What’s next?

Paya, these are incredible! Not only the details, but the photography angles - so professional! And I'm still laughing about the "Alien Crossing" sign on the wall with the clock. If you have visited the Bridge Studios, you know they have one of those at the entrance. Laughing Laughing

One comment - I suspect this is really Mac, not Jack creatively building. Laughing Or perhaps Mac's creation would be made with chewing gum and duct tape? Has anyone tried adding a mullet and a SAK for a Mac adventure? Wink

I'm amazed by the creativity of all the folks who tell stories with the action figures.

Thanks!

Kate

*Astra just sits back and is happy that the nagging of Paya was successful*

Because these ARE wonderful, with all the details and hard work you put in it.

Kate, I'm going to ponder the mullet question, but I guess the clothing will be more difficult, since the figures all have that military look. I once had the idea of putting my 12" Jack (as Mac) into an hockey uniform, since they sell figures of Wayne Gretzky and many others, but alas the uniforms could not be taken off.

(They're not that hard to make, especially with the iron-on transfers for the logos. I was tempted to make little Danny a Canucks jersey...he soooo needs one, with a little puck hat!)

I can show you how....or can help. A mullet is cinchy too...

Thank you for your nice comments. I am very happy that you have even noticed the details. I put several hints to real things here and there, and it's so great to see it wasn't in vain. Smile

Anne wrote:

It is quite small, yes. And when working on it, I found myself making smaller and smaller things gradually, so it was like starting with the shelves and ending with the tiny little pencil where I had to stop finally, otherwise I would have ended up in nanotechnology. Very Happy

That even looks like the right model of BMW, the R1200GS... my son is taking courses at MMI (I call it Motorcycle University), and the BMW's are the very last round of courses before he graduates, so he could probably sit here and tell me what your Jack is doing as he puts his bike together!

That is fantastic, Paya!! I LOVE it.

WOW.

Yep, that's right. Congratulations! I was wondering who and when would recognize it first. Smile It indeed is THE bike. Only a different colour. I had intended to repaint it to yellow, but then decided to leave it like this. I was afraid I might spoil it in the end, and besides, this is Jack after all, not Rick. So he can have a white motorcycle. Very Happy

I made it. Laughing I first made another can and then got an idea I might as well make a Red Bull can. For obvious reasons (those who were at Gatecon last year, or saw the photos from the event, certainly know what this refers to). Wink
So another of the several little hints I put into the pictures got recognized. Great.

I'm loving these. Even the teeny post-it notes - "Cake Beer" LOL!

You know, when I watch TV I often find myself trying to analyze how they did a particular shot. When I got to your overhead shot, my brain automatically thought, "Oh, a crane shot!" Laughing

LOL! I guess I've been completely sucked in that this is real! Wink

As my answer, imagine Jack's smile at the end of WOO. Wink

And here comes the story's finale:

Garage series - part 9/9:

Earth? I wonder whose idea this was.





A bit of gas to get started…



…and we’re ready to hit the road, Jack.



What a beauty!



Shall we?



So... that's it. I hope you enjoyed the story as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thanks for watching. Smile

Many thanks for your comments. I'm happy you like the photos.

The Garage series - Behind the scenes 2/2

As I have said, Jack kept disappearing all the time.

Jack? Jack? Where are you?





I knew I shouldn't have bought the skateboard...
This is NOT a skate park, Jack. Get back to work.

Ah! I thought you said something about me having the flu. Must've misheard it Razz

In case anyone is wondering why there is no enthusiastic feedback from me in here - Paya already had it in private and at lengths, so I did not want to repeat myself. But her awesomness is without question.

And I enjoy all your comments as well!

Yes, mine are the 12inch (Barbie Größe) figures which you can re-dress etc. Payas are the smaller action figures (not sure about the size). The small figures look much better than the big ones - their faces are closer to the real ones - but I couldn't resist buying the big figures because you can dress them in anything you want Smile And undress them, too, heh.

The little ones are 6" / 17 cm.

And your Jack and Daniel have dressed up! My, they look really good! I'm sure they will get lots of goods from Santa Claus. I wouldn't mind having that picture a tad bigger *squints with nose close to the screen*

Thanks Anne, I was so right - Barbies for STARGATE Fans!!!! Laughing Laughing When kids are playing with Barbies, the "dress and undress" part is absolutely the most interesting one. Have fun, too..........ladies!!! Laughing

I wanted to say something yet to your pictures, Anne, because I think they are also very funny! Plus I'd say we both have the same grill/barbecue. I also have posted pictures of it, you can find them here, right in the first post:

Thanks for the offer, but no. I just saw it while searching for other things and thought it might look cool. But I am not enough of a hockey fan that I would go lengths to create an uniform. I have my hands full already with the dress uniform.

Did you know you also can buy dress uniforms for Teddy bears?

True! Oh now see if I payed more attention to those first pics in this topic I wouldn't have bought it. The seller said it was 1:6 scale, but it's clearly not! But then, now my littles have something to grill on as well "g"

Yes, she is. Smile And I am truly grateful that she introduced me to the action figure world and inspired me enough to get my own figures eventually. Since then, bursting ideas, bringing them into life, creating the little stuff (which was reviving my old hobby actually) - it all has brought me so much joy. So, thank you, Astra.

Now, let's go on with the motorcycle story. Today, it's the test ride.
Before I start, let me show you a cover of a magazine. Who's subscribing? Wink

And here we go. Right after completing the machine, Jack rushed out to test it. He tried every terrain possible in the vicinity, and photos of this ride became the first entry into his motorbike travel book.

So, this is the end of the story about how Jack got his new motorcycle.

I'm going to take a break for a while, giving room to others who have been patiently waiting for their turn (hello, Astra! Wink), and then I'll come back with Jack's travel adventures.

A little teaser:



Stay tuned! Smile

Paya, That Astra sure can be a bad influ... um.. er... inspiring!

Yes, she is. Smile And I am truly grateful that she introduced me to the action figure world and inspired me enough to get my own figures eventually. Since then, bursting ideas, bringing them into life, creating the little stuff (which was reviving my old hobby actually) - it all has brought me so much joy. So, thank you, Astra.


You are welcome! Actually, it was totally selfish, since I needed somebody to share the joy with. It is no fun playing alone Wink
But I am truly happy I brought out your creating skills again and I am also happy that I can say that about myself as well. As much fun as the virtual world is, to make things with your own hands is much more satisfying.

Which reminds me, I owe you all a conclusion yet to the story I posted long ago. So here comes "Just an ordinary day part 2"


Daniel was not in the pyramide, after all. He was hidden behind a pillar, whe he had been translating all the time. "Are you guys looking for me?", he wonders.



They are on their way home, but at the gate the next surprise is waiting for them: Replicators!







While the guys are shooting at them, Sam rips the crystals out of the DHD, to disengage the wormhole and to prevent more replicators from coming through.





She was successful, but I now realize why I never posted this story before: It has no real ending. Sorry! If anybody wants to close the story with a fanfiction or an action figure story on their own, I would be happy!



But as was stated before - just an ordinary day in the life of SG-1.

A rare appearance by my 12 inch figures:

Jack'recent encounter....

“So, I was taking a good nap in that yellow travel blanket, when the Keeper pulls me out and she hands me over to this big guy in a Minnesota hoody. He looks at me, kind of disapproving, and starts going on about how he doesn’t like signing shirts. I mean, what’s that? Next thing I know, he’s put me face-down on this big ol’ table. For cryin’ out loud! I hear him say something about "it doesn't work well" and “I’ll show you....” Then he starts doing something, pressing down on me. Sort of felt like a strange kind of massage, or something. Then I’m back in the Keeper’s hands and, a few seconds later, she’s giving me the biggest hug ever! ...What?!”




Rick, thanks for being such a great sport!!!

I think I can understand his reluctance to sign textiles now, because when the squirts got "writ on", both MS and AT had one heck of a time getting the pens to write nicely on the material (could have been because the kids kept giggling...who knows?). If, say, the article being signed was rare or special in other ways to the person, there could be a problem if the owner got ticked that the sig wasn't "perfect".

But yours looks gre
