So, here’s some random fun.
Back in the fall, a buddy of mine gave me a Tatooine fast food promotional planet, inspired by the 1999 release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. When one presses the button on the front of the model, the toy opens, and two micro figures move inside as if they are dueling.
My mind immediately wondered, “how can I get those figures out of there?” And it didn’t take long to find an answer.

It’s been a long time since I did any real customizing that altered a collectible past the point if no return, but I don’t think anyone will lament the casualties in this case.
Above was the first run, and below I have pictures the other two: Corscant and Naboo. I finished both in about 30 minutes total. Here’s a rundown of the steps:
Not sure what happened. I was keeping it kool-and-the-gang about this new Star Wars flic for 15 months.
Yeah, I am going a day before it “officially opens”, and sure it is the first new live-action Star Wars film in ten years; but I am not a huge JJ Abrams fan, so I figured, “it’ll be fine; not great but good.” Plus, they confirmed Lando would not be in it, so I was already kinda disappointed. I had tempered my expectations.
But then I got on the bus after work, and I don’t know how or why, but something inside me went bananas.
