  1. Nov 10, 2010, 10:31 PM - Who is Mojo Turbo? #1



    Well, a long time ago when I got my first cat I was working at Toys R Us in Sacramento and I was walking the XMEN endcap and stumbled across the villain "Mojo" - so that became my cat's name. A few months later my girlfriend at the time once said to me, "whoa, slow down there turbo" and the rest is history...

    When I first went online I picked the name "Mojo Turbo" long before Austin Powers made "Mojo" cool and long long before the power puff girls.

    I am 42. I work at Disneyland. Before that I was a pastor at a local church, but the stupid economy tanked and for the last year my wife and I have been living at my Mother in Laws house trying to make ends meet.

    I have a 2 year old son named Declan who I made Buzz Lightyear this past Halloween.



    I spent the last year making a Jack Sparrow costume.



    You can read all of our costume builds here:

    Currently I am applying for Pastor jobs all across the U.S. but the demand is real low right now and there are hundreds more just like me.

    Boba Fett has always been my favorite character in the SW universes (If I had to pick a second favorite, it would be the Dewback with stormtrooper mount and the AT-AT would come in third) and I have been a SW fan all my life. I still have my mail order Fett as well as my 12" that you can look through his helmet. I have the life size cardboard cut out, tons of toys and SW collectibles. I even have that old SW blueprint book.

    I own the laser disk burns of all 3 Star Wars movies on DVD (unmasretered) as well as the re-edit of A New Hope.

    Please add me to facebook and we can talk Fett sometime:

    I am a Houdini buff, I love sleight of hand and collect decks of cards. I love world mythology, Jack the Ripper, and any movie that has a suitcase full of guns in it, or a car chase that involves driving on the curb.

    I drink Samuel Adams, love fried chicken and french fries and taco bell.

    I am a computer geek, I have my MCP and A+ certifications and play lots of PS3 games when my son is asleep.

    Oh, and I am related to someone who has been a member here for years....

    all right - so I'm back and I moved to Texas of all places. Now that Halloween is over I am wondering.... oh man, do I really want to do this? Just watched the Star Warriors special on the SW blu-ray and am questioning my skills with a dremel... ha ha - THAT and I have to convince my wife that she wants to follow me down this insane road.

    This last Halloween - did Jack Sparrow again (and this time made a mini-Jack for my son)
