    Aug 29, 2009, 2:54 AM - vader in carbonite desk ( version of solo in carbonite desk ) but mine didnt cost 3k #1

    Ok! Let me start off by saying that I took some killer step by step pictures and once I tried to download them my PC decided to delete them one by one. Man was I upset. It was perfect. Anywho! I think all of you have seen the solo in carbonite desk. Well $3,000 is way out of my price range. Especially now that I am another unemployed American. Man this economy is something else. This is a project that my best friend and I have been wanting to do for a while now. All it needs is the glass top and it is about complete. We just need to do the stand underneath the desk. It took about 14 hours to complete from start to finish. I love it and we had a blast doing it. Thanks Rich for helping me complete a dream……. Alot of the props were found at the dollar store. Total cost was about $30. I guess i saved $2970.00 and That is not including the glass i still need to buy for the top. As we all know, that will probably be the most expensive piece. Dude,,,,, it looks so awesome in person....

    That's awesome !!! Very original. And my laughing is only because it was such a surprise to see

    I WONDER when someone will ever get around to doing a George Lucas life size carbo

    I think I have a face cast laying around somewhere

    I started a boba in carbonite last year, with spare stuff. I thought it would be a cool project.

    This looks great. Id like to see a little shoulder and chest poking through in it, but its awesome.

    Very funny, indeed. Maybe I'll start with this because it seems easier to do than the HIC? Hmm, I will think about it.

    Normally you'd expect somebody to wade in saying you dug up a thread from 2009 but for something this cool I'll make an exeption .
    Did anybody do a Lucas face cast after all?
