Lovely stuff. The AT-AT is the Wizards of the Coast one?

Man I love the WEG Star Wars minis. I've heard people bad mouth them for years now, and I can't see why. I'm always looking for new Star Wars stuff, but I'll always have a soft spot for the West End Games take on these guys.
Now if we can just get Fantasy Flight to make metal versions of the Imperial Assault miniatures.

Lovely.

My Star Wars stuff is all still in a box awaiting some attention.
I have to ask: Where is the shuttle from?

all very nice  :-*

the shuttle looks like a kit rather than something from a more 'toy based' range (eg micro machines fleet action or whatever it was called) - perhaps an old Revell kit?

Really beautiful stuff.  A small batch of WEG Star Wars figures were some of the first figs I bought.  I still have a couple painted up somewhere, but the paintjobs are shockingly bad.

Not one of my projects, but it's Friday afternoon. Star Wars party foods  :D

My own Star Wars stuff is from the Hasbro Fighter Pods range, which is somewhat fluffier in tone than the pictures above ;D I do regret not getting these figures, and I'm torn about the current stuff that's out there. I quite like the 54mm figs, although there aren't a great number of poses. The new board game is a possibility, but I have enough projects at the moment.

Some of those are brilliant!  I think the cute Princess Leia cupcakes are even do-able by a clumsy baker like me...  The Yoda Soda is a recipe from the Star Wars Cookbook, it's basically just a lime smoothie iirc.  Yummy though.

Thanks for your comments!

The AT-AT and Shuttle are from Revell, not very expensives and can match perfectly with this miniatures!!!

Here some more photos!!!
