My bags are packed. I have the first flight out tomorrow and then it is straight to the convention from the airport so I will be a little late :-\ but looking forward to going.

Acquring FAO will only help sink the company into further debt. The high end/ high price exclusives that FAO is know for selling will be too much for R US company to handle. I don't know about other stores, but my store seems to rearrage the aisles every four months, but gets NO new products. I can't even remember the las thing I even bought from the store. Good bye R US and FAO, Christmas is the only thing to keep them afloat.

After reading the recent cast list of RUMORS I say its time to trash the movie or get a new casting director. I can not see "THE ROCK" as Shipwreck with a parrot, or Brendan Frasier as Gung-HO, I don't think so.

Here is a better pic of Diana Kruger. No blinding white and no visible ribs. She was a fashion model so that would explain why she was too skinny.

At they have a Casting Call for the Legacy comic characters. Here are my submissions.


Agen Kolar Head repainted
Mace Windu body-No sure which one exactly
The lines looked straighter until I took the picture. Will try to fix.

Wolf missing his forearm

Right arm was hollowed out and attached a screw to the inside. The arm is from the Heir to the Empire comic pack Luke with a magnet placed inside.

Wolf's forearm

b]Imperial Officer[/b]

Body-Comic pack Luke
arms-2 Luke right arms
Head-Moff Jerjerod
Upper torso collar/armor -modified cast of Qui-gon training armor

Admiral Sha Dun

Body-Comic pack Luke
head/hands-POTJ Plo Koon
Upper torso collar/armor -modified cast of Qui-gon training armor

Imperial Knight-generic

Head-JvC Wetsuit
Body- E3 Red Royal Guard
Cloak-500th Vader
Arm armor-Cast of Typho armor
Shoulder armor- modified cast of Qui-gon training armor

b]Darth Kryat[/b]

Cade Skywalker

I am thinking of reworking the head a bit by adding the soul pacth on his chin and some stubble.

Head-Tatooine Luke-suggested by Darth Kryat
Body/gunbelt-VOTC Han
Armor-TAC Jango removable armor
Jacket-21st Century soldier
Jacket armor-cast of Clone Commander pauldron


Sergeant Harkas

Sgt. Harkas is the leader of Joker Squad and was injured in the blast that killed Jes.

I made this guy once before and took the suggestion from that post and added them this time around. All of Joker Squad has dirty armor since thay have seen alot of feild time.

Body-TAC Stormtrooper
Head-BBI Paratrooper

Jes Gistang

Jes is the big Guns operator for the Squad. She was killed when a stray shot hit one of her ammo pouches.

Body-Tac Stormtrooper
Head- Denna Shan
Cannon-Vanguard trooper
ammo pouches-BBI soldiers

Hondo Karr

Hondo is a knife expert and went AWOL after the mission on Yinchorr.

Body-TAC Stormtrooper
Head-JvC Blowtorch

Vax Potorr

Vax is the supply man for the team. Vax was killed by a toe mine.

Body-TAC stormtrooper
Head-BBI paratrooper

Anson Trask

Trask is the "Noob" of the team-hence the clean armor. Trask took the shot that killed Lord Maleval.

Body-TAC stormtrooper
Head- cast of B'Arin Apma with a hair cut
supply pack-parts of BBI backpacks

I like Joker squad because they showed a different view of the Stormtrooper we have known. They showed regular people, not clones, serving the Empire. The helmets in Legacy are not too much different than the standard Stormtrooper helmet so I did not add them to mine. I wanted the focus to be on the character.

A package that I shipped out to a forum member here on the 22nd of Feb by USPS has not made it yet. I put a tracking numder on it and all it says on the web site is that it left the PO on the 22nd. Don't know what happened to it after that, guess it left the building and disappeared.

I live in an apartment and my postman will make an effort to see if I am home if I need to sign for a package or have one that won't fit in the mail boxes made for packages.

I have mailed out several since the Fed 22 package and all have arrived within 3 days of shipping.

Robo has hooked me up with some coins and custom fodder I've been needing. Even had a quick payment. Pleasure to work with. Thanks

Received a package from UPS a week after it was shipped. The loading center and my place are only an hour away from each other.

I off load UPS trailers at my employer, big items on pallets, the merchandise is usually crushed and torn, but they deny the claims filed against them saying it is not their fault. I know a forkblade mark when I see one.

USPS. I have nothing but issues with these people. Took a month for a package I shipped to get to California. I've had packages get to Switzerland faster.
