Did anyone catch that fake commercial? There was a commercial for the Hanso corporation during one of the commerical breaks. They even set up a website for Hanso

Yes, I thought I was the only one. And I have to say that this is one of those shows where I want to know what the hell is going on, but if they tell it all, it kinda defeats the fun of the show. What to do?

Here's the seller's e-store on ebay:


His BIN prices are a little high, but you can usually get a good deal if you wait out an auction. Just don't outbid me on the belt and boots that I need for mine  ;)

Are those Yoda feet, or Godzilla feet? They look like Godzilla to me...

I must have these.

Anakins Jedi Temple outfit is something I am leaning towards but it does not have to be 100% accurate.

That is a major factor right there...

I purchased a Jedi outfit last year on ebay for about $35, plus about $10 shipping from China, just because it wasn't any particular Jedi. The costume itself is great... great quality, looks really good. I think it's actually just some kind of kung-fu type clothing, but it's definitely in the "Jedi" style. I had a robe/cape from another costume I wore a few years ago, so all I have left to get is the belt and some boots.

I'll see if I can dig up the name of the seller I bought my outfit from.

2 Clone Commander Kamas, a premade soft goods kama attached to a clone belt by someone who knows what they are doing, (unlike me ;))

This actually isn't as hard as you may think.

I had a few of the Darth Maul capes from the Episode 1 Accessory packs, so I cut one up. I cut off the skirt from the belt that was on the ARC and glued on two small strips of the Maul cape in their place. It was a first attempt at doing something like this, I had never worked with fabric before. But I'm pretty happy with the results.

Just give it a shot. Like I said, it wasn't as hard as you may think.

I found this online at and purchased one a few weeks ago. It's pretty cool for storage of my customizing supplies and whatnot... body parts, accessories, etc.

I also bought one of these at the same time, for more storage options.

It's a little on the small side, but it's good enough for what I needed.

How do you store all your customizing stuff?

You can kinda throw the seeds out the window. 

It's always been like that in any major sport, but moreso in the NHL. It's not like this is the first time that a #1 seed has been taken out by a #8 seed. The playoffs are always a "fresh start" to the season, so to speak. Anything can happen. And it usually does.

Wow, this guy has some great Sideshow customs....

Emperor Palpatine

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan and Qui Gon

He's got a thread to showcase his work over at Sideshow's forums, you can check it out here

And a different seller has made a ton of nice 12" Clones. Here's his auction for Cody but look at the other pics in the auction for Gree, Bly, Shocktrooper, Boba Fett and more. Great looking stuff. 

How about Vintage Leia in Ree Yees Disguise? What do you mean you don't remember that scene?

Anyone have any extra pairs of gauntlets from the CW Anakin or Mace? I'm searching for a few pair...

Here's a small list of some extra stuff that I've got. Prices are listed if you want to buy, but I'm always interested in trading as well. A link to some stuff I'm looking for is posted in my signature. This list is far, far, far from being complete, but as I go through all the boxes in my spare room and figure out what's extra, I'll list it here.

Card conditions on these vary greatly, so please ask before we make a deal if card condition is important to you. Most of these were bought with customizing in mind, so card condition was not a factor at time of purchase or storage options since.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Star Wars Marvel Style- PIC HEAVY
« on: April 28, 2006, 10:53 PM »

Those are way cool... except for Yoda... something's just... off about him. The head mostly. But the others are way too cool. Are those made with the Marvel Legends figures as a base?

Today I shipped some stuff out that costs $44 vs. the $40 quote I charged the buyer.  I guess I'd rather have the reputation as a generous seller than a shady ******* that makes money off the shipping only.

Yeah, I can't tell you how many times I've ripped myself off by not charging enough shipping. I've actually started "overcharging" and refunding the difference by mail, it's just easier on my wallet that way.

Would it be easier to just by a 7 string guitar? probably. but what fun is that??

Not just easier...

I don't think that conversion would work. The tonality of the 6 string guitar is different from the tonality of the 7 string. The intonation is going to have to be worked on, probably big time... and I'm not sure the tension rod - if your particular guitar even has one - can be adjusted to work with strings of that thickness. This is a project you should definitely get professional advice on before starting, just to find out is it will work.

Good luck.

Yeah, I was checking Amazon today, and they bumped the dates for the Gunship and the battle pack to May 4th.
