well, as you've seen from my last few customs, i've been using a backdrop for a them. i would like to try and make a few different backdrops to change it up every now and then. any ideas of what kind of stuff to use for doing something like a desert scene or something?

The simplest answer is to just "borrow" it from some one else.

http://www.niubniubsuniverse.com/
http://www.erikstormtrooper.com/

Or a Simple Google Image search.

Next step is paste the picture you print out to piece of poster board or cheap wood product that isn't warped. Or have it for photoshop to merge layers.

You could purchase a model railroad building in LGB scale and use the walls for masters to mold and cast in plaster. However, the larger the scale, the more expensive the original purchase would be.

You could also buy the POTC2 Isla Cruces set that I did to customize buildings from. They clearance at Walmart as low as $11 around January.

Or just find a Power Team Elite/World Peace Keepers set with walls and add some rail road shrubbery.

i recently found a few deluxe POTF2 figures, eletronic R2-D2, and electronic obi-wan kenobi, each had a good backdrop with them. anyone know of more figures with stuff like that packed in?

You can get all of those backdrops, plus all the cinema scenes backdrops at

http://www.erikstormtrooper.com/ .

Early Saga figures had a small backdrop, but nothing significant.
