Some of you who don't keep up with the news on this sort of thing like I do might want to know that Disneyland is planning on changing its a small world I was there in Nov. for my birthday and was lucky enough to ride it during its Christmas run.
But rumors which are starting to sound more and more like truths, are stating that Disney is planning on changing the ride to take out parts, like the rain forest part and making it a America tribute, also are rumors of adding Disney characters to the ride like Mickey etc.
I've added links for those of you who want to do something about this whole situation:
Staying on par with Star Wars things how about this?
A man named Scott decided to dip his Boba Fett pez dispenser in bronze
"I made this using the lost wax casting process with an organic burnout. The material is silicon bronze. The original sleeve for the Pez broke, so I cannibalize dparts from another dispenser: Simba from the Lion King. The hole in the body resulted from an incomplete casting of the thin part; probably could have had better sprue placement. I like the results, though. The replacement sleeve was modified for the "battle scar" effect, revealing the Pez. Finishing was minimal, with a pretty standard bronze patina."
I've been a big fan of Sideshow toys since they first came out with their Universal Monsters Line I even have their first 12 inch. figure ever released, but had a falling out, I've recently gotten back into them since they are shipping figures from companies like Hot Toys and Medicom.
So knowing that they make pretty kick ass replicas, it wasn't a surprise when I heard about their next project, a real life replica of R2D2 and C-3PO they are supposed to be the most accurate and best replicas on the market, they'll cost you $6000.00 a piece but it just might be worth it.
Not for me though I want the one that moves and talks like the one inside of Star Tours, though that will never be for sale :(
If any of you out there got to see Be kind Rewind, then you would know what the term Sweede is on the movie's website you can even make VHS boxes for your own home movies!
Anyways some guys decided to make one for the cycle scene in Tron and the results were great! Its kinda old news but some of you out there may have not seen it.
