I've heard that you can't wear MR's helmets.  They don't fit a human head because all the clone troopers were cg animated.  I could be wrong though.

Thanks to Darth Nerdold for the sig!

Well I know I can't fit the Clone helmets, but I do have a bit of a big head. ::)  Does look quite comfy though.

As for the ROTS Vader, it really is amazing what a great ebay deal can do to your resolve.  I suspect that might end up being what I do with the ROTJ Vader as well. :D  No willpower what so ever. :-[

Too true, Master Knucle, too true.


In the interest of expanding the coverage of my customs, as had been requested in the previous thread, I'm posting these shots of my Obi apprentice saber.  I took them a few weeks back, and can offer more if there is any interest (as with any of my collection).

It was made by Luuke of thelightsaber.com fame, and might just have been his last saber project ever, sad to say.

As always click on the thumbnail for the full-sized picture.



This is the apprentice saber as seen on the cover of the novel The Rising Force.  Obi-wan used it before he made his own (in that famous Jedi rite of passage), which I believe was the TPM saber.  (I just happen to have a picture of it as well, this one is my Label EL.)

I'm a little surprised that no one has asked about those two interesting cases on my shelf.  But then again as I still cannot elaborate on them yet, I really should be glad there has not been any curiosity. ::)

How is the Darth Vader ROTS BTW? I have been thinking about getting one since it is very cheap on ebay. It would be that or Obi-Wan ROTS

The ROTS Vader is surprisingly nice in person, not my favorite, might even be my least favorite in my collection, but not as bad as I thought it before.  That said, given the fact that it was never seen on screen and since you do have an Ani ROTS LE DS, I really think you'd do much better with a "Dual of the Heros" set up, by picking up an Obi LE.  The price may not be quite as good as the Vader, but in my opinion it is a far superior LE. ;)

Well it really is a matter of your personal tastes, but to me, nothing makes as good of a ROTS pair as these two:



Well, maybe these two:

I think a Battle of the Heros setup would be cool, and now I'd be able to do it with FXs. I also like the Darth Vader one too....ahhh decisons, decisons. I got my eye on a few ebay auctions for both sabers. We will see in the coming weeks :)
