    I got nominated for the ALS ice bucket challenge, but instead I made my figures wet. Hope that counts as well!

    I'll check out the new links! Thanks. No, I haven't seen Arrow yet. I'm a fan of Sherlock. Between Torchwood, Doctor Who and Sherlock I'm ready for a trip to the UK!

    Oh hi Nell! Long time no see! I'm good, travelling to the UK all the time. Last time I was there, I was in the studio to see John Barrowman record his new CD. That was awesome.

    Glad you're enjoying "Torchwood" and "Doctor Who"! These are really great series. I have a smiliar action figure thread in the Doctor Who forum here: http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/8...ures-in-action

    And a crossover with the Doctor and Jack O'Neill was also posted here in the Stargate thread: http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/4...1#post14156674

    Do you watch "Arrow" as well? It is shot in Vancouver, and a lot of the former Stargate team are working for it, for example BamBam for the fight scenes. My new fandom, and it has John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) in it I just got my first two figures...

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Wie geht's, Astra? I finally started watching Doctor Who and Torchwood late last year. So, when I discovered this thread I had much enjoyment! You do a superb job with the props and details. Danke schön.

    Jack: "Again this little girl is in trouble. Hey, Spikey, leave her alone or I'll shoot!"



    Spikey: "Um, what?!?"



    Spikey: "I have no idea what you are talking about!"



    Unfortunately, Jack doesn't speak Spikey's language. "Ianto, help me getting her away from him!"



    Jack: "There, I have you. You are safe now."



    Jack: "Ianto, are you okay?"



    Ianto: "Just peachy!"



    But then...



    What happened?



    Ianto: "Noooooo! Jack!"



    Tosh: "Nobody hurts Jack, and certainly not you!"



    Jack awakes in Ianto's arms. "What happened?"
    Tosh: "She was a shapeshifter, nasty things. Have you not watched 'Men in Black'? Did you not ask what a little girl is doing alone in the forest?"



    Jack, Ianto: "How did you even come here? We have the SUV."



    Tosh: "Why, on my cool bike of course!"



    And the Spike worm? It thinks: "These are weird people. I shall go hide myself."



    PS: The new alien featuring in this story got bought just a few days ago at Hamleys in London. I sent the link to the story to the office and they replied that they have laughed quite much and are happy it came into good hands with me

    I've done a prequel to the previous story! Someone had given a funny comment which inspired me. So here is how Jack and Gwen ended up with those umbrellas.

    A lazy Sunday at Torchwood:



    Gwen takes a seat at the couch and eyes the donuts, while listening to Tosh and Owen absently:



    Apparently they have caught some aliens from the planet Tsxywscrlthr or something:



    Jack and Ianto join the party as well. Jack asks:

    "Owen and Tosh, can you deal with the Tsxywscrlthrians on your own, Gwen and I have a Weevil to catch! Ianto - do we have any umbrellas? It's chucking it down today."



    Ianto: "After you used your last umbrella as a sword to kill some aliens, we only have these two left I'm afraid. Sir."



    Gwen: "You gotta be kidding me."



    Jack: "Thanks, Ianto, this one will do nicely!"

    Gwen: "You gotta be KIDDING ME!!!"



    Jack: "Come on, Gwen, Weevils to catch!"

    Even heroes have to carry umbrellas sometimes while catching aliens.

    Jack: "You! Stay away from her!"



    The little girl is frozen by fear.



    Jack is wet. And pissed.



    "I said, stay away from her!" Jack and Gwen still can shoot with the other hand.



    The Weevil does not carry an umbrella though.



    Their wet backsides - I used a spray bottle on them

    Here is the first scene I ever made - the gun practice with Jack and Gwen from the episode "Ghost machine". This is the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdZE-sOC0CM

    I made them blue ear protectors and yellow goggles. I also had intended to make a black vest for Jack, as he wears in this scene, but I have no idea of tayloring. I hope you don't mind that little continuity difference.

    I'm disappointed that they can move only so little, though. I was not even able to make Jack's famous self hugging pose. He also is not able to put his second hand under the hand that holds the weapon. My Stargate-Jack is able to move his shoulders better for this pose.

    And Gwen can't move her head at all and stubbornly refuses to look into the direction she points her weapon. Seems Jack has a bit of hard work to do yet

    Oops, sorry I just realized I never gave you the second part for the "Torchwood as a band" story. Here it comes:

    So sorry I kept you waiting so long for this second part. I was occupied with other stuff which I can't wait to show you. So, if you already have forgotten about the first part of Torchwood as a band, you can find the pictures here

    And here's the link to the fanfiction again which inspired it all in the first place: http://doctorwho.livejournal.com/7341951.html

    Quote: The rest of the band still hadn’t come down from the ecstatic high of music and exhaustion when Jack led the man into their dressing room. Gwen thought she recognised his spiked hair and Clark Kent glasses from the audience, but she was too tired to be sure. He was bouncing on the balls of his feet like there was still music playing, and grinning from ear to ear.

    “Magnifico! Molto bene!” he exclaimed, darting from member to member of the band to shake their hands enthusiastically. “I wasn’t sure about you when I first heard about you, but once I’d seen you in concert, well...I’m from Blue Box Records. D’you think we can negotiate?”

    This story was done together with a friend, whom at least half of the miniature stuff belongs to. I was waiting to post these till we actually have Spring, but since it doesn't seem to get here this year, have some action figure theatre! The Doctor and Jack are gardening in the Spring (part 1/3)

    The Doctor and Jack enjoy some time off.



    Jack has sown some vegetables.



    The Doctor has no idea what to do with this strange tool.









    The TARDIS has been changed into a rabbit hutch (the original idea belongs to someone from our German TTT forum, who did this in real size - awesome! It's what inspired this whole gardening AFT)











    Then Jack helps the Doctor and shows how to plant the turnips.







    Finally Jack is watering the plants.

    Hehe, thank you, I will wil chek it out later (should do other thinks right now, aham... *looks guilty*).

    Actually, you can find much more "Torchwood" fans in Germany than from "Doctor Who". Simply because Pro7 stopped airing it after the second season (and now though it's back it's only on a pay TV channel), I also forgot about it and came back some years later in 2009 through the back door with "Torchwood", which was dutyfully aired and repeated by RTL2 right after "Stargate".
    Yeah, I heared about this before. I still have to get uesed to the thaught, I like somthing with is airing on RTLII. Usually I avoid watching this channal. Well.. I stoped watching most of the private channels as well, since there is so much advertisment and I haven't got a TV anyway . Somehow it's a shame that they show Doctor Who only on pay TV but to be honest: Who wants to watch Doctor Who in German? Really? I tried watcin one of the eps on DVD with my flatmate. We didn't stand the first five minutes. It's just horrible, what they've done to it. Same this Torchwood. I tried the synchronized version on You Tube. Slightly better but still intolerable.

    My goal is though to make everyone aware that Captain Jack Harkness/John Barrowman also sings/dances/entertains, I only became a huge fan of him once I had found out about THAT. Nobody told me. Could have had all the fun years earlier!
    I discovered that he sings musical and stuff some weeks ago. That was when I definitely fell in love with this man. (Though I started "chrushing" (if you want to call it like that) on him, as soon as I started watching Torrchwood.) I uesed to be a huge musical fan. And he has such a beautyfull voice. He definitively revived my passion for this kind of music.

    Heh! Then you MUST check out my "The Doctor visits me in Dresden" story - I showed him all the sights! http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/8...1#post13271898

    I explained that once to an American friend and she said I just enlightened her why the third big group giving feedback to her Torchwood stories, after US and UK, were Germans. Apparently in the US it is the other way round - everyone has at least heard of Doctor Who, but Torchwood, not so much.

    Actually I AM German, too But not from "drüben", I uesd to study in DD fore a couple of years so I MIGHT have walkt passed you . I'm still surpriesed how many Whofians an Torchwoodfans there seem to be here. When I found out about it I thought, its only some freaks like my friends who know about it (freaky in a good way, though, of course).
    Don't know, where I got these furniture from, I was too young. I know, that this stuff isn't intended for children, at least not only. But I did have it for my doll house and uesd to play with it.

    Thank you LOL I just have so much fun with those figures! I do "Stargate" stories and "Doctor Who" stories as well, if you want to check them out? The "Doctor Who" stories have their own thread as well: http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/8...ures-in-action but the Stargate stories are mixed with those from others (which are also good) here: http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/4...kers-beware%29

    You are not from Eastern Germany by any chance? Because that wooden table with chairs, as well as the kitchen are indeed back from my childhood days. Other miniature stuff, like all the kitchen items and food, I have just recently bought, you would surprised how many miniature shops are out there. These are not toys, these are for adults who want to furnish a doll house.
