Vintage Kenner Star Wars "A New Hope" Recreation

Been wanting to do this for awhile. Start recreating as much of the Star Wars movies using only the vintage Kenner figures (at first) and then do it again with all the modern figures filling in. For scenery, will only use things that can be found around the house. Of course, I have a table covered in sand in my garage so that counts - and helps with the Tatooine scenes.

So here goes....and action!

 "How did I get into this mess? I really don't know how. We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life. I've got to rest before I fall apart. My joints are almost frozen.!"

 "Well, I'm not going that way. It's much too rocky. This way is much easier."

That malfunctioning little twerp. This is all his fault! He tricked me into going this way, but he'll do no better. 
Wait, what's that? A transport! I'm saved! Over here! Help! Please, help!


Look. Someone was in the pod. The tracks go off in this direction.

Look Sir! Droids!

"We're doomed. Do you think they'll melt us down?"

"This R2 unit has a bad motivator."

Wait, there's something dead ahead on the scanner. It looks like
our droid...hit the accelerator.

"That droid is going to get me into a lot of trouble."

" Oh, he excels at that!"

 "Whoa, just where do you think you're going?"

"There are several creatures approaching from the southeast!"

"Sandpeople...or worse!"

"Hello there! Come here my little friend. Don't be afraid."
BEN: Rest easy, son, you've had a busy day. You're fortunate you're
still in one piece.

LUKE: Ben? Ben Kenobi! Boy, am I glad to see you!
BEN: The Jundland wastes are not to be traveled lightly. Tell me young
Luke, what brings you out this far?

LUKE: Oh, this little droid! I think he's searching for his former
master...I've never seen such devotion in a droid before...there
seems to be no stopping him. He claims to be the property of an Obi-
Wan Kenobi. Is he a relative of yours? Do you know who he's talking

 Ben ponders this for a moment, scratching his scruffy beard.

BEN: Obi-Wan Kenobi...Obi-Wan? Now thats a name I haven't heard in a
long time...a long time.

LUKE: I think my uncle knew him. He said he was dead.

BEN: Oh, he's not dead, not...not yet.

LUKE: You know him!

BEN: Well of course, of course I know him. He's me! I haven't gone by
the name Obi-Wan since oh, before you were born.
To Be Continued.

Marx T34 Russian Tanks

Was going to use these in a different diorama, but until I get the right stuff, just thought I'd line up some tanks on the Russian Front.

DC Universe - Women of Power

DC Multiverse added some awesome female figures in their latest assortment - Supergirl and the Carrie Kelley "Robin", and Harley Quinn. These ladies kick some serious butt in the DC universe. Worth picking them up and adding them to any collection.

21st Century XTreme Detail Ultimate Soldier - WWII

New recruits incoming. After having so much fun building the last 1:18 scale diorama, I had to enlist some new recruits and build the army.  Need to pull the trucks and jeeps out of their storage boxes and move them to the front.
