    Dec 21, 2012, 9:20 AM - Star Wars - Christmas Story Crossover... Leg Lamp #1

    Happy Holidays!

    It's a major award!



    So, based on a joke my wife (total genius) made about 9 months ago, I made a Star Wars Christmas Story leg-lamp crossover from parts I had around the house. Not permanent, but fun. The parts will be returned to their proper builds in a few days.

    I HAVE been planning on making a permanent version ever since she first mentioned it months ago. After this picture was posted on facebook, there have been TONS of responses asking where I got it, which has given me the motivation to build the actual lamp for next December (2013)

    Starting in January I'll be sculpting new, original parts from scratch and posting loads progress photos of the entire build here.

    If there's enough interest, I may do a few extras.

    You should post a link to your FB photo here so we can click it and share in to our friends. I know I have a few who would love to see this.

    With the great response it's getting I think it's highly probable.

    I love it! Very creative and whimsical.

    I picture Sheldon or Leonard on the Big Bang Theory having one in their apartment.


    BTW the facebook link isn't working (for me at least)

    That would be amazing! I just checked, looks like I had the album on private. Just updated, link should work now.

    Pffft! Love it! As far as I'm concerned that's a more thematically faithful addition to the franchise than A Christmas Story 2.

    That movie was pure blasphemy.
    I still cannot unsee that monstrosity that they tried to pull off as a "sequel".

    Gordon, I shared your picture of the leg lamp and got this message from Steve Sansweet, so I'm passing it along to you:

    "If you ever seriously make any of these, put me down on the list! It would look amazingly cool at Rancho Obi-Wan. Thanks for making a lot of fans smile today.
    Regards, Steve"

    I told him the design was not mine, but that I would pass his message along to the creator!

    Steve is calling, my friend!
