    Parks V1 MPP Tube

    On hold. One for the ESB Fett builders: I am cleaning up my prop boxes, and found an original run Parks MPP tube. Correct size holes. Still in good shape, there's some light scratching on the chrome but nothing major. Has a wear mark from the shroud screw. Comes with button/bulb release...

    Show your Dr. Who props!

    I spent the last week making a touch lamp for a friend. The anchor lamp was old and rather beat up; found a Gardman bird feeder that had the proper top but it never shipped and I had to use one of the modern incorrect ones. Wanted the top to be metal since the lamp would generate heat and it's...

    New Tomenosuke Blaster Pro "Retail" version

    Same here. Been on the waiting list for a good long while. I emailed Mune yesterday and he replied that some were available. I'm a little irked.

    Could Disney finally give us the remastered, unedited Star Wars we want?

    Yes, but that said, you have people at the top of LucasFilm who are passionate about Star Wars. To those people, it's not just a dollars and cents thing. Look at how Disney handles the Marvel or Pixar film properties - for all the crap they pumped for that bleak period between Lion King and...

    Ooh, other than the shiny metal, that is pretty.

    And I was feeling good about my collection of the main characters! Impressive!

    New Star Trek TOS Phaser coming November 2014

    Should be easy enough to modify for accuracy. From the looks of the renders, even unmodified the relative proportions of the p1 + p2 are lightyears ahead of the MR.

    A couple good magnets in the bottom of the p2 handle and it ain't going anywhere, even of it weighs a few pounds. The magnets just have to be strong enough to keep it from tipping over or sliding - not support the full weight.

    New Star Trek TOS Phaser coming November 2014

    If they go with the flat, round-end ribs on the side that will be interesting. I think they look great - a very thoughtful clean up of what are sort of blobby on the original.

    New Star Trek TOS Phaser coming November 2014

    Looks like the bottom of the handle is now one piece instead of having the plate like the renders. That's mildly disappointing. Edited: well, it's late. Looks like the renders are slightly inconsistent in regards to the handle, so maybe they're not actually dumbing down the final product...

    New Star Trek TOS Phaser coming November 2014

    When the item ships. It's die cast metal and 1:1 -- even if it's just the phaser equivalent of a Mauser, it's still a huge step up from an AA/DST. Preordered as soon as I saw it.

    Trek Movie Comm's Under Construction

    Thanks. All I had to do was paint, wasn't much to it.

    Trek Movie Comm's Under Construction

    It was very low tech and hacky - I'm using the antenna as a conductor. The current isn't powering anything, it just needs to be enough to trip the controller. The copper tape on the mid plate acts as conductive rails, and then I'm using more copper tape on one side to provide current to the...
