Sneak Previews - DS2 Palpatine's Arrival
It's VERY close to the finish...40 NEW pictures have been added to the Sneak Previews Section today. after this week, I have but one more update before unveiling the finished DS2 Docking Bay - Palpatine's Arrival.
Updated today are Page 22, Page 23, Page 24 and Page 25. Now for those of you who jump to the Last Page first - You know who you are - LOL. The jokes on you because the Jaw Dropping pics are on 22, 23 or 24 :P
Just wait till you see the difference the Mirror makes in the Diorama. It cost me $115 bucks but man, was it worth it. Well, what are you waiting for...Go check it out :D
More 2003 Improvements.
You might have noticed a small change today, I have added Roll Overs to the main page as well as a test to the Choose A Character Section. This should help you better discover what images also act as actual links. I hope you find them helpfull. Please let me know if they affect the speed in which the pages load in your computers. I am very interested in this also. I don't want to sacrifice esthetics over speed.
Happy July 4 to my American Visitors

Summer Movie Reviews - Terminator 3
I bet you I can predict what will become this week's Number 1 Movie...Let me see...Of course I am talking about Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines :) As soon as I came out of the theater I knew I had to RUN home and type my review for the NiubNiub's Summer Movie Reviews section. But was it to warn you to save your money or to get ready for the Best movie of the summer? Ahhh, for that answer you will have to go and see for yourself :P I'll give you a clue...I hope you have 12 bucks in your wallet - LOL.

Where's NiubNiub? 3 - Clue Number 1
After one week into the Where's NiubNiub 3? contest, there are only 38 entries who correctly answered all 3 tasks. That means your chances to win are still great. If you are having difficulty finding me, here is a first clue...
Start on this page and think Number 3. Then 3 again and start looking :P Don't strain too hard, you will easily know when you find me :) So don't give up...I know you can do it. How often do you get the opportunity to own a NiubNiub Diorama right? :) and remember, these are not copies, but the actual ONLY ones that I created.
Next week return to Day Shifts - lots of goodies
As you can tell, the 2 weeks I work nights limit the number of updates :( but the good news is that next week I return to days and the timing couldnt be better... The Death Star 2 Docking Bay is now complete, I will be taking pictures on the weekend with all the stormies in place and even try to create a Quick Time VR to allow you to see it from all angles. This should be up Monday.
Then I bring the entire scene up to Legends Action Figures for public display. I will have more info and pictures on that mid or end of the week. I am very excited about this and can't wait to have room to walk around in my basement again - LOL. Once the exhibit is set up I can start to concentrate on my Toy Reviews (Lego, Aliens, Matrix, Simpsons and gremlins) and also do a MEGA update in the Visitors Dioramas. It's been several months since I had time to update and I have almost 40 Visitors who've sent in their amazing diorama pictures. you will be in for a treat.
All this should keep me busy for a while and then I can return to my
next diorama creation...Death
Star Conference Room. So have a Great Weekend. I'll see you Monday

Palpatine's Arrival - Teaser
Man am I beat...Saturday it took me 6 hours to set up and take more then 52 pictures of the completed Death Star 2 Docking Bay. And even with the pegs, those little stormies just WANTED to play DOMINOES :P. 5 fall, Fix 5, now 12 fall - can you see the pattern? :D You should have heard me SCREAM - LOL.
Sunday was spent sorting, color correcting, cropping and choosing the 9 BEST photos for a whopping 11 hours!!! I was so into it, I even forgot to eat dinner. Now it's very late and since I have to get up at 6:30 this morning, I didn't have time to set them up in NiubNiub's Star Wars Dioramas Section :( However...No need to panic just yet :P I did promise you pictures today so below is a small Teaser of what didn't make the cut. You can call them Niubniub Deleted Scenes if you will :P Enjoy and stay tuned for the 9 Final Pictures...

Official Opening - Legends NiubNiub Diorama Exhibit
I am SO happy to tell you all that the Legends Niubniub Diorama Exhibit officially opens today !!! A total of 10 scenes will be on public display from now until December. So you have plenty of time to book your plane tickets - LOL.
Located at 7104 St-Hubert Street (one block from the Jean Talon Metro station) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Legends Action Figures has been my source for buying all my toys for the past 3 years. Steve, Jose and Henri have been so great to me, I was thrilled when they asked me to put the Palpatine's Arrival in their main window display :D
But I realise not everyone can come down to Montreal and visit, so I tried to create the next best thing... a Legends Exhibit Section. It's the next best thing to coming over and seeing it in person. Starting with behind the scenes pictures of the Palpatine Set Up, the Window Display construction, Some close up pics of the Diorama, Pictures of the Diorama Exhibit, A Virtual Visit to the Legends Action Figure Store including a really cool Quicktime: VR as if you were here with us. If you are in town, make sure to sign the Guestbook and pick up your exclusive Niubniub Exhibit Fridge Magnet. I will even transfer your comments to the site, so be nice - LOL. Oh and who knows...maybe we will see each other there when I am picking up my latest batch of toys :)
