Look What I Just Acquired!
« on: September 22, 2003, 08:12 PM »
Take a look at what I acquired this weekend (CLICK HERE)!  One of my brother's friends gave this piece to me, and I would love to learn more about it.  This friend of my brother's couldn't remember exactly where he got this, so if you know anything about this item please reply here.  Thanks!

I'd email Vic Wertz (you can find his email on the Official Fan Club site I think. If not, he is IndigoVic on Rebelscum). He has one of the only complete Star Wars pinball collections in the world, so he'd probably know exactly what it is

I just sent him an email about it, and hopefully I'll back from him soon.   :)

Dale, it's absolutely gorgeous!  It looks so much better in person.  I sure hope I hear back from Vic soon.  I'm anxious to learn more about this item.

I hear ya. The colors are so bright & nicely done.  8)
Are you going to have it framed, if that can be done? Maybe a plexiglass cover to protect it would be nice.

Well, I don't know how I would go about framing it, because it's about 3/4-1 inch thick.  I'm sure it could be done, but I don't know how I would go about doing it.  Putting plexi-glass over it does sound like a great idea though.  I was thinking about putting some kind of a lighting kit behind it, so that it would light up the areas where it would be lit up (if it was installed in an actual pinball machine).

Vic is here at JD under the username Vic Wertz as well.
