Boy am I pooped - LOL
Well I had to work on a Coke commercial this wekend and so I had little time to do what I had planned for the site. We have 3 people sick and seems their workload fell into my lap :( 10-11 hour days is no fun ! I took pictures of the Gungan City that I was gonna post this morning but I am not happy with them. They are too poorly lit. I want to take better ones that do justice to the diorama. I will hopefully find time to put the section up before weeks end.
In the mean time have fun checking out what I did manage to get ready for ya :) Lots more to come during the rest of the week.
More Classic Star Wars Figures Reviews
More Classic Star Wars Figures Comparisons
Finished putting together the comparisons for ALL the Classic Star Wars figures in the Classic Character Comparison section. It's a lot of fun to see how the figures improved since the 70's :) And viewing the pictures side by side we see that some of the sculpts were amazingly accurate for their time (and sometimes better - heh heh)

Gungan Sacred place now in Making Of Section
Time for a NEW Diorama
I need some feedback from you guys as to what to make next. The Number 1 Wanted Diorama is Luke's Blastshield Training which is very detailed and would take at least 6 weeks to make. Should I go for it or would you prefer a quick Tantive IV Scene before I get started on the big one? I will do as the majority wants :)
Wow, Secret Page Found Again :)
Congratulations to Yanick M, Max, Stephen M, Jesse Ryan W, Chubby and Rhodes who managed to find my Secret Page last week. Way to go guys. If you haven't found it yet, don't give up :)

New Visitors Diorama Pictures
Today I am pleased to add Max Custer's bounty hunters in Niubniub's Visitor's Dioramas section. Max used my textures from Niubniub's Download Textures section to create his scene. Very Cool. Make sure to check it out. And if you used my textures why not show me how your diorama turned out. I get a real pleasure knowing I helped you out :)
A BIG Thanks :)
I just want to thank Bibfortuna809, Vader419, dmp35, Erwin, Markus, Logan, Kevin, Nathen, mewdude86, Bone, Rogers, Scot, Eric, Chris, Jon, Tim and David for last wednesdays emails. It was really nice of you guys ;) Do you collect DVD's ?
Want to become Niubniub's first partner?
If you enjoy DVD's you might already have taken a peek at my Home Cinema section. You would also know how pathetic my reviews section is - LOL. I only have 5 or 6 reviews and find it hard to make time to write reviews. I had an idea this weekend to change the review format and have visitors send in their reviews with me adding a small paragraph with my views of agree or dissagree like Roger Ebert's TV show. This way, the reviews section would grow faster.
My wish would be to have 1 or 2 "regulars" who could contribute reviews of the movies you watch during the week. If you think you would enjoy becoming part of Niubniub's Universe, send me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you.
