    Ok so there are many a project that has been hanging about for a while in our garages / workshops, so i thought it would be an idea to have a New Years Prop Resolution!!

    So, post your New Year 2012 prop promises / pledges here and update your progress...What is that one prop you've been meaning to start / finish?

    Mine is my i,Robot NS4 head by Zorg, it's been in my garage for years, i intend to finish it before 2012 is out!!!!

    15/05/2012 - NS4 Head Started - Primed!!

    to stop buying props, seriously.

    the 2001 hal panel pre order was the last until i can get a new house (i think)

    so far i have done very well over the last couple of months.

    only thing i buy now is stuff to enable sales e.g. raw materials or greebles

    about 75% of my bought in stuff is unfinished, there is no need for me to buy anymore. you should look at your stuff and ask yourself "am i really going to finish it?" if not sell it.

    I promised myself to have a completed Spidey suit in 2012. Hopefully it'll be just in time for the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man :)

    I started a "30 day challenge" twelve days ago. My own challeng to work on one of my two projects every day for 30 consecutive days. No guarantees that I will complete either in that time, but it must give me good progress by the end of that time. The cylon helmet will be finished first!

    Kelvin phaser, BSG season 1 blaster, 2 p1 kits, Firefly Phil cast Mal pistol, and, oh yeah, the life-size head and shoulder Odo cast sitting in by buddy's basement... and I will start with... one of them... this year.
    BUT FIRST-- I want (NEED) to build a display for my screen-used ST:TMP prop! (Hint: Spock used it.)

    Mine is to finish my Jawa that I started 6 (YES THAT'S A SIX!!) years ago!! Other than that, I want 6 Star Wars helmets built and ready to display by this time next year.

    Oh and the small task of selling my house and buying a new one with room for a Man Cave, but I'm sure that'll be easy... :lol

    I'd like to finish up some lightsaber hilts. Unlike major payne's mine is to buy more kits. I don't have enough to do.

    Like zorg, I need to stop buying really expensive props... although I do want to start acquiring Stormtrooper armour... lol.
    Also, I'm gonna try and finish off a few projects: my ROTS Dooku saber which I only really need to attach the grips back on, and a weathered ANH Kenobi lightsaber.

    My actual New Years resolution was: I won't buy any new stuff before I haven't finished the main projects lying around here.

    The largest being C-3PO, which is about 80% done (apart from chroming), and has been for quite a while. So that will be the next thing I will tackle, I actually started already by ordering properly sized arms, a few more brass greeblies, a bit of assembly work and he's good to go.

    Same here.

    In fact I will be selling a pile of items.

    I am going to scale down and concentrate on quality and what I really want.

    Next purchase (unless anything else comes up out of the blue) will be the eFX legend hero Stormtrooper.

    Ha !

    Please tell me if you manage to keep this resolution, and more importantly, how you do it.

    That's what I said to myself. Now its only 02 January, & my finger on the 'pay' button still has a life of its own :(

    Finish my TOS sim, get Encom's Astrogunner in a cab, finish another one or two proto Encom cabs (Vice Squad next). Already buying fewer props but agree that's a difficult resolution.

    i WILL have a 2-1b kit available this year, i have been working on the neck buck recently, it will happen i promise!

    just sell a **** load and keep a small select few things, its the way forward for me. they are just expensive dust collecting toys at the end of the day, with the economic situation right now i would rather no debt and money in the bank, and i'm just about there!

    willpower alan willpower.there is a ton of stuff i would like and i have had my finger on the "pay" button as well. instead of hitting pay i hit the red "x" top right hand corner,and walk away. it works for me. it means there is another few hundred bucks still in your pocket.

    you must have loads of stuff you have not finished, just finish them or sell them. that will keep you occupied.
