    I dont have any back from the actual line up - but here is a promotion that was done Saturday with @ Bestbuy with the Jedi being Bestbuy's Sales Manager.

    The fight that took place infront of Edwards @ around 7:30pm (the one Channel 30 keeps playing) and the beheading of Jar Jar binks was me as well.

    * i have more pictures from that day if anyone cares to see them. I promise that i'll post pictures from that night as soon as i get them. Will try to get an .avi file also made from my parents video recording of the fight itself.

    I was wondering is that suit was custom made? I saw another vader waking around which appeared to be off. I dont know if it was the Rubies version.

    Also, was the BB shots at the Riverpark BB?

    hey rabbit,

    The suit is not custom made and it's takin countless hours of playing with it to get everything working correctly. One of the biggest problems is a sound card i have lowers the pitch of my voice to sound like him and loops breathing, but the voice is kind of hard to understand with the way i talk so as of now i just keep the breathing. The suit is made of pleather, leather, and fiberglass and was made by professionals duplicating the molds from Empire Strikes Back. The robe and cape are made of wool with the cape having a 21' span to it.

    As for the other Vader, i saw him as i got there around 5:30. I wish i could have gotten a picture with him, but he saw me and kept walking while i was taking pictures with another kid. I didn't see him the rest of the night and hope that i did not ruin his night by showing up =\.

    Yeah the pictures were takin at Bestbuy in Riverpark. It was neat that kodak was doing a promotion for digital cameras and "portable" printers so that allowed anyone who wanted a picture with me/us to get a 3 x 5 for free from the kodak representative.

    Hey DarthFresno, I saw your pic in the paper too, very cool.

    Ever think about joining the 501st, as we could always use a few more people in the Fresno area, if so check out our local garrison site and join up:
