Thanks guys. I found that one already. There are a few other sites too. http://www.bubblegoose.com/ClassicCommercials/commercials.html has several of the old kenner ads.

Cheers

Replacement Vinyl Capes

Yeah, I have managed to find some sites selling repro capes but I would really like to make some myself.

I know we all refer to them as 'Vinyl' capes but there must be a particular plastics name for the material.

Hmm...

P.S My Uncle buried his Dinky toys in air tight containers in his aunties garden, somewhere in Dartford. Oh the pain!

Has anybody here had any success in finding a material that matches the old Vintage Vinyl capes? I have several Hoth Stormtroopers and the odd Darth Vader that are in prefect condition except for a torn or missing cape.

I have been collecting for nearly 10 years and have never come across suitable plastic sheeting. It must be out there somewhere!

Star Wars Behind the Magic HELP

Brace yourself Bossk.

I am afraid to say that Connectix's Virtual PC was purchased by Microsoft earlier this year.

Microsoft were keen to 'develop' the mac side of their range apparently! Hmm.

I am considering buying it but its quite expensive.

Thanks for everyone's help. It nice to be in the presence of Mac loving Star Wars fans!

Thanks for your suggestions. I did think about Virtual PC. But it is rather expensive and I really want to keep away from Microsoft products these days.

I too have done a thorough search on google and have found several sites with active links to the missing clips. However, for some reason some of them don't playback on my mac.

Therefore I really wanted to go back to the source.

My quest continues....

Star Wars Behind the Magic HELP

Hi,

This is my first post on the forum, but I have been reading it with close interest for months now.

I wonder if any of you can help me. I own Star Wars Behind the Magic for PC which as you probably know shows some of the missing scenes from A New Hope.

However, as the years have passed I have moved over to Apple Macs and so I can no longer see the footage!

Does anyone know how I can 'rip' the footage from the CD-ROM. There are several huge files called Bundle.000, Bundle.001 etc.
Win RAR doesn't seem to decompress them! Any ideas, as I am desperate to see this footage again.

Many Thanks
