- Remember when Art used to sell ROTJ capes?
- Remember Jango Bear?
- Remember those super heavy resin jet packs with solid resin/wood missles?
- Remember when the right mohair girth was id'd? We bought them from "Statelinetack.com" I believe?
Keep this thread alive! I'm sure I'll think of more.
-Remember Mark Bradly's million pound jet pack was the best thing around.
