Make the Maker contest
Hasbro has given collectors amazing Star Wars figures like Porkins, Biker Scouts, Slave Leia, Tarkin, Yakface, Boba Fett and Wicket ;-) to name just a few. However, there is one glaring omission - the flannelled father of all figures: George Lucas. Rebelscum, ToyFare Magazine, and the FFURG.com have a NEW contest and challenge you to create your own custom George Lucas.

Vader Secret Revealed is Completed
I am happy to say that Darth Vader's Secret Diorama is now in it's proper home. All pictures can be found in Episode 5:Empire Strikes Back menu under Bespin. This is one of my all time favourites, I can't wait to hear your comments. Something tells me Sarlaac Pit will fall to Number 2 this month - hee hee.

Chicken Run : DVD pick of the week
I skipped this film in theaters thinking it was bad. Boy was I wrong. I laughed and laughed, and I am amazed at the time it took the animators to make this great movie. 2 seconds of film per day! now that's patience. If you haven't seen Chicken Run, I highly recomend it. Excellent.

Choose a Character Updated
Finally, with a HUGE thanks to Eugene Mikami (sorry it took me so long) I have added the pictures and reviews for Jar Jar Naboo Swamp, Qui-Gon Eopie and the Eopie Beast. You can click above or go to Choose A Character menu and click on Darth maul's head to go to the Episode 1 figure menu. It's a shame these were impossible to find, they are very cool toys.
Character Variations Comparison Updated
Took the liberty to add Jar Jar Naboo Swamp and Qui Gon Eopie to their respective pages in the Character variations Comparison section. You can see exactly how each figure compares with it's previous incarnation.Time for a New Diorama -
Sneak Preview Gungan Secret City
Since my ruins head has been sitting in a box for almost a year, I thought now is the perfect time to return and complete this diorama. I have placed pictures in the Sneak Previews section. Just Click on the Gungan Sacred City picture. Remember, if you like to only see the finished scenes, this could spoil things for you.
NiubNiub's Digi Camera broken
While taking pictures of my Gungan Ruins head, I dropped and broke my camera :( - hey it's hard to take pictures when you have only 3 stubby fat fingers - It is still under guarantee and will get it fixed by friday they tell me. I will try and post the C:VR during the weekend, if not I promise I will give you 2 next week. On the plus side - you have more time to send me suggestions for what figures you want to see animated. Just e-mail me your suggestions.

Virtual Character Wednesday: Postponed Again
I feel so guilty to dissapoint my VR fans but I have not had time to pick up my camera from the store. The good news is that they have received my replacement in stock. Now I just have to find time between Work, Office Christmas Parties and Shopping to go get it. Most likely this weekend. Again, I am sooo sorry for the delay, I promise I will try and make it up to all of you somehow ;)

Very First Niub Niub Poll
If you don't have 5 minutes to vote for the Top 6 - LOL - Why not take 30 seconds then and vote in my Character:VR poll found just to your right. I want to see what direction I should go with these for 2001. I am curious to see if polls can work to help me know what my fans want in the new year. Remember, without you guys, Niubniub's has no reason to exist.
