NiubNiub Face Lift :)
Decided to do a little re-designing of the main menu page. Navigation Logo's are still located on the left side and now Sponsors and Affiliates are found on the right.
Top 6 Wanted and Favorites now up
Click on the Top Six Logos on the left to go see if your pic made it to number one. I want to thank everyone who e-mailed me with their suggestions.
You have spoken and it's a tie between Vader's Secret and Interior of the Millenium Falcon. I think I will choose Vader's Secret (a little more simple and will need me to create new Download Textures for you as well) and will wait for New Obi Wan's release to start the Falcon. Stay tuned for Sneak Preview Pics soon.

Remember this is a TEST, After you look at this you must tell me if it's as exciting as I think it is and if I should create a section for them. Check out my MAS AMEDDA CVR TEST You will need Quick Time to see it.

Character VR's a HUGE HIT !!!!
As if I could not predict this one. LOL. I've been told hasbro had a couple back in 96 but now long gone. But I don't think theirs had animation. So you have spoken and I shall create a NEW CVR Section during the weekend. Who would make a good first figure to make? send me your ideas.

Premiere of the Character VR section.
NiubNiub's newest section and perhaps the coolest ever. Starting today, you can see Star Wars action figures in full 360 degrees and with stop motion animation ! I think I am the only site on the web to offer this.
The first figure is Darth Maul. Click on Niubniub's Virtual Characters button on the left. You need quicktime 4 to view him properly. Each wednesday I will add a NEW C:VR. Which one I make depends on all of you. Go to Niubniub's Virtual Characters and send me an e-mail with your suggestion. The figure with the most nominations gets his own C:VR. If your figure did not appear, e-mail me again the week after. I'm counting on you to make this a great section!

I hope all of you trick or treating in your Star Wars costumes get all the candy you can eat - heh heh
Ultarama's are AMAZING!!!!
I just got mine in and WOW, If you want a place to display your figures, pictures just don't do it justice. Imagine creating a Death Star with 4-6 levels stacked on top of each other. I am preparing a new section soon and will even have backgrounds that fit in the Ultarama's slots. If you want more info head over to their site. http://www.ultarama.com at only $19.99 it's a real deal.
