I agree BRECKENRIDGE! I'm a skier though so you guys might have trouble keeping up JK
The topsheet on that board is pretty cool too. The blk/wht kinda charcoal pencil drawing.
Wow that is pretty sweet!
It's on craigslist if you guys want it
It isn't mine though
Definitely interested if you would pm me with more details.
That is a cool board. There was also a Fett armor board jacket from Analog a few years back.
I think that model is kind of big though Mirax. Like a 160 somethin' if I remember. It might've come if smaller sizes.
Funny thing about this board was, I remember seeing this at our International retailer buyer/buyer show(SIA), which is in Vegas every January.(Think Comic Con for snowboarding/skiing). Anyway, I walked by Ride's booth, saw the Fett board prominently displayed. And instantly was stoked on it. This lady from Ride walked up, and I said- "Cool Fett board!"
her- "What board?".
me- "Y'know, Boba Fett, Star Wars. That's Boba Fett. Awesome."
she matterly of factly said- "Oh no, that is our character. Our designer made him. That's some space ranger he drew. (Yup, space ranger. I swear on my Fett suit.)
me- "Well he drew it, but the character IS loosely based on Boba Fett from Star Wars. It looks good." (throwing "loosely" in there, as to not appear rude or anything.
her- "NO. It is OUR artwork. He designed it." (she threw out a real stern tone.)
me- "Well cool, thanks for your time." (Admired it a second more, and strolled off.)
No joke. It was pretty funny. She was pretty darn sure of herself, knowing it was a "space ranger". I thought it was great. I took a friend back by their booth, to confirm the art's Boba Fett-ness, and results came back- "Hey, that's Boba Fett."
Oh no, not looking for me, looking for Brak's. Now that is pretty funny, an original character I would sooooo love to hit SIA next year since it is pretty close by.
Cool, if he can ride around that size board, you can't beat that graphic. Original or no.
Yeah, the Vegas show is really neat. Every company has big elaborate booth setups, very similar to SDCC in that respect. It is closed to the public though, all pre-book wholesale business being done. But, if you have a friend that works at a snowboard/ski shop nearby or something, you could always have them add an extra person to their retailer list, if they go.
It's a great show, but next year is the last year for SIA in vegas. They're moving it to Denver in 2010.
There was this series of boards from Capita, in 2001. These were okay'd by Lucas too!
I wasn't able to get those pieces, due to the company I work for. We also do Foursquare and Special Blend outerwear. So, I couldn't wear those kits. I was jealous! Still am!
and since ill be home, you can DEFINITELY count me in, and probably +1
SWEET! Glad to hear it Gilmore!
BTW-that Boba board is a 163 wide....wayyyyy too big!
