Sorry for the delay guys but I finally figured out what prizes to send to the participants Very Happy

I want them to be a surprise so the winners won't know what they "won" until the package arrives nanny

@poncho  &  @the89thchris

I need the two of you to PM me your address  What a Face

Some remarkable artefacts from @ourchickenshack showed up today.

It appears to be an expertly paint stripped removable limbs C-3PO and some sort of delightful vintage ESB contraband holders rofl Thanks so much James, very cool stuff. Now to see if I can figure out what it is before someone posts a library or SWCA link.  study



Also, I didn't know that the second version of 3PO didn't have a real rivet in the back. The more you know study study study

Thanks so much for the overly generous participation award! rofl

EDIT

I love the level of detail that James puts into his customs. The 3-PO's are a stripped fixed limbs (cream) and removable limbs (bronze) which I'm very happy to add to the collection. Very Happy

I'm actually planning to put it with my Dewback Andy. I was thinking of making a lance for him from a damaged Leia Boushh weapon to keep the vintage look.
