We're proud to announce Roger Christian as a returning special guest and speaker at 'May The North Be With You' 2024!
Roger won the Oscar in 1977 for Best Production Design for his work creating the iconic "lived-in" Star Wars universe we've all grown to love. He was Star Wars' first Armourer, designing and building Luke's lightsaber, Han Solo's blaster, Chewie's bowcaster and the Stormtrooper blaster (among others). Using surplus military and airplane scrap, he created the Millennium Falcon's cockpit and Luke's Landspeeder. Roger worked alongside George Lucas in Tunisia, designing the look and feel of Tatooine we've returned to so many times. Years later, Lucas tapped Roger to become the Second Unit Director for Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace!
May The North Be With You is a collector-run convention and toy show taking place in Burlington, Ontario (Holiday Inn Burlington) from August 2nd to 4th, 2024!

The first reveal of custom figures that will be going to the charity auction & raffle table at the May The North Be With You convention.
General Rieekan, General McQuarrie & Major Bren Derlin

I reworked a Han Hoth torso, arms and legs. Then make nice cast resin versions.
The heads for Rieekan & McQuarrie are 3D printed version that I bought from FunkyMaclunky and modified them with a neck post to fit my torsos. Then made casts of them in flesh colour.

I was going to wait until tomorrow to show off the next batch of figures that will be heading to the charity auction and raffle table at the May The North Be With You Canadian Convention in August. But because it's such a nice day. I thought that I would post them early.

Admiral Yularen, General Veers, Admiral Motti, Admiral Ozzel, General Tagge, Admiral Piett & Chief Bast.
The head sculpts are from FunkyMaclunkey.
