Evilos Strikes Back

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

A while back we posted about the custom Mickey in Carbonite we bought from Evilos, showing a picture we took of Boba Fett pushing him to his ship. Evilos has one-uped us by creating one rad diorama with several of the Star Wars Vinylmation characters and his custom Carbonite figure. As always he fills the piece with lots of extras, like the guns for everyone and Boba Fett’s cape (see 2nd picture). This is a great way to show off the custom piece he’s created. The base also plays the Imperial March. Check it out.

We also got a chance to talk to Evilos about several aspects of the diorama’s construction.

Destination Vinylmation: We really like the guns you find for your pieces, where did these come from?
Evilos: The guns were from the 3 3/4″ product hasbro line, also Boba’s cape. The guns were dry brushed with silver to make them look real and glued
DV: The base is awesome, tell us about it.
E: The base was custom masked and painted, all figures are bolted to the base. Static but Heads and arms still move.
DV: You say the base plays the Imperial March. How was that constructed?
E: Low profile base stand legs used to help house (hide) the sound component. Sound works with a switch in the back of the base.
DV: Lastly, the floating Carbonite Slab looks magical. I know in my picture it was a camera trick, but here its floating from all viewpoints. If you can, could you explain how that happened?
E: The floating effect is achieved by pinning the block to the side of Boba, then bolting Boba to the base to hold the weight of the block.
DV: Wow. Amazing as always. Thank you for your time, and once again we appreciate the contribution to the Vinylmation community you and your art provide.
