I think I'm gonna go with my custom Darktrooper for this.  Don't know how much it would go for, but I'll take some better pics of it this weekend and then send it off to DD as originally planned.  I'd like to advertise it as a Battlefront Darktrooper, because in the game they seem quite a bit smaller (more like a normal soldier).

 :P

DD is sending it to Red5Sixx (BlueDotToyz.com) and he will auction it off for us.  I thought we were doing it that way so that it was consistent.   ???

I'm shipping off my Super-Articulated Biker Scout today.... I could have sold it but I have a negative feedback from 4 or 5 years ago  ::)

Supposedly Phillip lives near Phruby and I. We should go pay him a little visit... >:(

I think I'm going to auction a Shadow Trooper Commander I painted last night. (To go with Hasbro's Target Exclusive.) I'll get some pics up this weekend.

He does? I thought he lived in Texas. We do need to pay the old man a visit. ;)

I didn't know that. That's a good idea.

I sent my figure to DD today  ;D

We definitely need a consistent text for the box.  We should mention something like this:
_______________________________________________________________________
A number of Star Wars figure customizers from across the nation (and the world!) are trying to help out the victims of Hurricane Katrina.  They have donated various custom Star Wars figures for auction here with all proceeds being donated to the Red Cross for Hurricane Relief.  These are custom made figures based on the Star Wars franchise and are in no way affiliated with Lucasfilm or Hasbro.  This is a charity auction, so please bid freely!
Here is how the plan came to fruition: Link to this thread

Charity Custom: name of custom figure/description
Customizer: your name or Forum ID
E-Mail: your e-mail in case anybody has a question about your custom
Figure Description: parts used, other pertinent information
Notes: any other information, such as if the figure is "sealed", articulation, etc
[/i]Pic(s) of custom[/i]
________________________________________________________________________

What do you guys think about that text?  I think it would be cool to have our information up on the auction in case anybody has any questions.  Good/bad?

I like it. The only thing I'd change is to remove Katrina and just say victims of the Gulf Coast hurricanes since Rita is whipping them right now.

I really doubt that having a negative feedback from that long ago would deter from your auction. Your doing it for charity.
I remember my dream now.

Good point, that works for me.
