For [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison who wanted to see my MacGyver box!

Many years ago a friend visited me and gave me this box. One of the best gifts I ever got!
I guess everyone knows who MacGyver is? If you don't - he is the guy that could stop acid leaks with chocolate or make bombs out of weedkiller. Played by Richard Dean Anderson, absolutely recommended TV series! With computers before there was Windows and huge mobile phones in the Eighties LOL

Since I am in Indiana Jones mood since my last purchase I watched "Raiders of the lost Ark" today and it reminded me of this video which is very well done. I wonder if I ever shared it in here but since I didn't have an Indiana Jones tag till yesterday probably not. Go watch it!

(not to be mixed up with "Screw SG-1" which I once wrote in all innocence many years ago and then wondered why everyone hated me)

This is probably only for the hardcore Stargate fans. I just found it again while cleaning my computer. This shows how creative fans are, and how you can do action figure theatre without any action figures. This is simply brilliant and utterly genious, so if you have some minutes, go here and check it out:

http://sg1screw.altervista.org/index.php?l=en

What I am talking about is the small things - casting a golden screw as Apophis, or a thicker screw as Hammond, or a female screw as Stargate, and let's not even start on the ring transporter or the sarcophagus... See if you can find all the little things!

These are the episodes:


Episode 1
The first adventure of the team SG1 Screw! Jack, Samantha, Teal'c and Daniel meet the Goa'uld on a distant planet. Will they accomplish their mission?

Episode 2
The team Sg1 Screw is on a mission on an alien planet to help its inhabitants, decimated by a hideous alien monster that has enslaved them. What will become of them?

Episode 3 - part 1
Jack, Daniel, Samantha and Teal'c visit a planet famous for metalworking. The team discovers an ancient artifact and accidentally releases a group of replicators that threatens to destroy the planet.

Rise of the Guardian
We made an episode with images taken from the video of Rise of the Guardian . This will also support those who don't have a fast Internet connection to enjoy this story.

The page also has special features and extras. And if this post is only for me to never lose the link again, but maybe some of you may enjoy it as well!

For all the Sherlock fans at my friends list! Please click this link to a wonderful entry who has collected some awesome miniature work in the Sherlock world. Re-creating the famous living room, and someone even made figures of Sherlock and John.

And then there is also a tutorial about how to do Baker Street 221b in a matchbox. Simply awesome.

Here's the link: http://aletheiafelinea.livejournal.com/96094.html

For all my newly found miniature friends - you know who you are! These pictures were taken last Summer when [personal profile] cowgrrl and other friends were visiting me. It was the weekend of our annual city festival and each year they have a steam model exhibition.

Watch the video and click the LJ cut to see many detailed pictures. Basically, it all moves and works! The drilling machine was drilling holes, and there were chippings falling from that machine in the middle all the time. Everything you see is handmade.

Not all pictures are mine but I am allowed to use them.

For my shiny new tag "Work of others". I love this very much as it is really funny and it also shows you don't need a lot of fancy props as long as you have an unique idea. Well done [livejournal.com profile] sharp2799!

(only those that watched Stargate will get the significance of Blue Jello though)

Once in a while I like to show the action figure or miniature work of others, and this is a worthy candidate! This girl made Mulder's office from the X-files.

Check out all her pictures on her Instagram: https://instagram.com/miniature_xfiles_office/

And here is an interview with her: http://www.fox.com/the-x-files/article/super-fan-profile?cmpid=social_20150821_51188206&adbid=886273928077008&adbpl=fb&adbpr=362989843738755

(If you have seen this before, I already posted it in [livejournal.com profile] action_tales but wanted to share in my personal LJ as well)

Today I want to introduce you to some (action) figure theatre from artists. Here are some lovely pictures from photographer Christopher Boffoli. He uses tiny people - I think from model railways? I really love these, have a look here:

http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/tiny-peoples-wonderful-world

There is also an interview. And here at this link some more and other pictures:

Also, Roy Tyson has joined the fun:

Some really great ideas there - maybe you get inspired as well? Hope you like the pictures!
