    Muppets Now post release

    Henson wouldn't have wanted it to be the old thing anyway, even if he were still alive and in charge. He was always pushing the boundaries, looking for the new technology or angle. He was even starting to experiment with CGI puppetry shortly before his death, so it's hard to argue that the...

    The search for a Plasti-Kote GM7173 equivalent...

    Verdict: eeeeehhhhhh. It's about as close as Medium Marblehead, just from the other direction – too dark instead of too light. I guess if you didn't have anything better at hand, but if you have the choice of what to order, I wouldn't recommend it. The tricorder door on the right was...

    The search for a Plasti-Kote GM7173 equivalent...

    I just left it as-is. I hadn't heard of that one before, no. It looks awfully dark in photos, though we know how misleading those can be. I just ordered some so we'll see how it does. I also think I found the post you did, and it mentions it as the Duplicolor version of GM 15, which as I said...

    I'd also be interested in some of the 1/4-20 knobs. Don't need all of them by any means though.

    Interested in that Graflex slave and those heiland stubby shrouds.

    Oh. Man. Do you have dirt? Because I want dirt.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music

    Kristen Shaal. Probably best known as a comedian and as the voices of Louise Belcher on Bob's Burgers and Sarah-Lynn Smith on Bojack Horseman.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music

    I'm less concerned about the trailer not being funny and more worried about how derivative of itself the movie looks. Granted trailers are often inaccurate or misleading, but the movie they're selling looks like Bill & Ted: Genisys.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music

    Oh lord, it's a mashup and remake of the first two movies, with historical musicians replacing the historical figures from the first one.

    WannaWanga ANH Graflex configuration: RAF stamped sidebar

    FWIW, I suspect that vintage pins and tabs were not bare brass but instead nickel plated like the other flash parts. On none of my vintages nor the slaves I own is there any hint of brassy or warm coloring anywhere but the tips of the pins, tips that stick out just a little ways from the body...

    WannaWanga ANH Graflex configuration: RAF stamped sidebar

    For sure. If your reference for how a vintage Graflex looks is a repro, then it's going to mislead. Nothing vintage has those bright clean contacts. (For years, I was actually unaware that the pins were connected to the guts via external tabs; once all the reproductions started coming out, I had...

    WannaWanga ANH Graflex configuration: RAF stamped sidebar

    Many vintages have tabs so dark/dirty they're almost invisible. I think it's safe to assume they're present, because there's no motive for the prop guys to remove them.

    WannaWanga ANH Graflex configuration: RAF stamped sidebar

    Why would they have disassembled the bulb socket on the hero? The ANH stunt wasn't a real Graflex so there'd have been no reason to mess with it to that degree.

    The Wand Company TOS Tricorder is coming!

    Holy cow. I missed out on the communicator (already have the Diamond Select with metal lid and I couldn't justify the cost), but I won't miss out on this.
