Discussion: does anyone has $1000 to spare?

…I could buy myself something like this:

LOL! this is a quality replica, not like those sold for $50.
Here is more.

Anyway, while surfing on the Net I found a guy from my city (well, more like from Tricity, but who cares about the details ) who broke his piggy bank and bought himself a full set of stormtrooper armor.

And you thought that I’m probably a freak?

I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

only a 1000? hmm... let me check my bank account.

For $1000, I'd want the real thing, not just a replica...

I still think you're a freak, RRS. But that is pretty cool all the same.

The links worked for me, too. And, I would like to add, that dude ain't gettin' laid anytime soon unless he finds a woman at a local sci fi convention.

I'm talking about the picture of the tie fighter helmet. Looks like the breast computer is broken, are you sure you want to pay $1,000 for that?

Doesn't look broken to me; maybe the glossy finish is playing tricks on your eyes, SES.

LOL, even if I had a thousand bucks now, I know better ways of spending it...




P.S. not *that* way, you dirty perverts!

Pic looks fine to me, too.

RRS -- what were your "plans" for the $1K if you did have it? Wink wink nudge nudge.

I like the "Not to be worn as a protective helmet" line. lol!! just imagine a worker wearing that on the construction site instead of the regular helmet...
and the stormtrooper guy looks kinda pathetic. yes the stormtrooper uniforms are cool, but only in the Star Wars settings. that dude is just standing around in his room, that's pretty dumb.

RRS have you tried contacting your local 501st garrison commander?

I've been looking into props and costumes a lot lately as I am slowly leaning towards undertaking a massive fanfilm endeavor. But it won't be happening any time soon, I still need:

the money
the equipment (though I'll have that by the end of the summer)
a small studio with lots of blue screen
dozens if not hundreds of props and costumes
a bunch of computers with 3d software and the knowhow to use them

so nobody hold your breath but like I said I'm leaning that way.
And I dance. And I sing.
And I'm a monkey, in a long line of kings.

LOL, you asked for it:






@motti - no, it's not me, it's Mike and this was never my nick nor name.

that looks kinda better
and if i may hijack this thread: has any of you ever been to a Star Wars convention? and have you dressed-up as a SW character?

I have dressed up as an SW character, but not for a convention (never been to one). I was Emperor Palpatine for Halloween back in 83 or 84.

what kind of evils could be unleashed from only one innocent picture...? the only thing i can think of is that people could get nightmares from it and would never be able to sleep soundly again, ruining their lives...
but that is a risk i am ready to take!
