In the meantime, at Stoffi HQ...

Summer!

Today I took the last exam for the semester and when I got home I finished and submitted my last report.

So now I have almost three months before I start on my master thesis in the fall. This means that I can get some time to wrap things up with the new Stoffi version and hopefully release it. Yay!

However, I have a planned trip to Hong Kong with my family between June 11th and July 19th. So there may not be anything happening on the Stoffi front until after I get home. But don't worry! I have something for you while you wait. I found some cash a couple of months ago and one of the things I spent it on was my office/diaper room (this is were all the magic happens).

So I took some picture to show you the awesome results.


Here's some bad guys after running into Luke and Chewbacca.


But Luke and Chewie are backed up by a hiding Han Solo.


An overview of the stand off. Note Princess Leia coming in to rescue the boys with a sneak attack from behind.

This is really the place where I just put all the excess characters I got from all the other models. I may actually build some environment and incorporate the cables from the screens into it to make it look really cool. It would also make the characters less prone to falling over.


Here's Leia showing some of the tactical plans over at the rebel headquarters on the planet Hoth.


A lone rebel running for his X-wing.


Some imperial troopers going in for an attack on the rebel base. Also, a drone!


A TIE bomber, perhaps running away from that big bad-ass X-wing in the background?


The complete space scene with an A-wing, a B-wing, a Tantive IV and the planets Alderaan and Endoor. Also, an astroid field (which actually looks like a single planet, guess I have to paint the whole room black so it blends in more).


There's Yoda! He's in the middle of a fight with some droidekas. You may not see it clearly here but one droideka is actually destroyed. Two more standing. Yoda also has a AT-RT behind him and a clone trooper coming in from the left.


Luke is hanging from a snow speeder over the imperial troops.


Finally, the whole of my little HQ. There's still some stuff I didn't show (like ranging lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and old Obi-Wan Kenobi) but you can spot the Millennium Falcon in this picture which is my (so far) most expensive piece (except the desk with adjustable height).

Don't worry, there will be more. I plan on building both a scene from Tatooine and one from Endor later on.
