    I found this site sometime back that had resin 1/6 scale X-Wings, Tie Fighters, Landspeeders, snowpeeders. They even claimed to have a Millenium Falcon. I've seen them at Fao Schwartz but was wondering if anyone here knows someone who makes them. PM or EM me with any info. [​IMG]

    They have a 1/6th scale Xwing and Tie fighter at FAO Schwartz. I know I've seen them online before. They're made out of resin and I was looking for a few of them. I believe they were from the UK but I can't be sure. I'm sure shipping would be a bear but at that size if it is in the states I'm sure it'd be cheaper to pick it up one's self. [​IMG]

    I believe my Toys-R-Us Naboo fighter is in the 1/6th scale range at 84 inches long. Used to be available for under $300 on Ebay.

    Started in May 2003. Almost five years old!

    It's funny that people posted in it in 2007 after a lapse of more than three years, and again in 2008 after a lapse of more than another year, without missing a beat! :lol

    Nice At-St. I have been working on a 1/6 jedi starfighter from AOTC, although I have not made much progress beyon the pic. The R4 dome is done and has fiber optics in it so the lights will glow. The Obi is the Koto episode 2 1/6 scale figure.

    My AT-ST wa in the living room for a very short time. My wife decided the best palce was in the basement.

    I still have pictures to scan of the Falcon and AT-AT from FA0 San Francisco and will post them.

    For what it's worth, Hasbro made some 1/6th scale vehicles back in the 60's for the original GIjOE line. the 11.75 inch tall Joes had of all things, a Jeep, a Panther Jet, 3 different Helicopters, a Submarine, a Mercury era Space Capsule, a Hang Glider, a 6-wheel ATV, an 8 wheel Mobile Support Vehicle, and more! So the scale, may not be 'exactly' 1/6th, but was large enough for these big Joes. There was even a line of tanks, mine sweepers, motorcycles, and DUKS, made by Irwin. Amazing how many of these 'big' toys are still around.

    A fan film I'm attached to is working on a 1/6th scale X-wing, but it will be a crashed one, used for a force perspective shot.
