Yes, hurry before LucasFilm shuts down the domain.
Whoever registered this domain yesterday needs to be reminded about
Lucas' very acvtive legal department and the use of their tradenames
"Star Wars" and "R2 D2," even if you're selling a product that has been
licensed. Advertising about it here isn't going to help much.
Did I ever tell you the time he got my rocket ship bubble gum dispenser?
It was back in '78 or so when I (and he) were in the San Fernando Valley
area of LA. I went into a pinball machine shop in Burbank, and they had
this absolutely gorgeous fully restored metal rocket ship bubble gum
machine they had refurbished. Authentic from the 50s or early 60s. These
weren't toys, but the kind that they had at drug stores or barber shops.
They wanted $95 for it, which was about $90 more than I had at the time,
but I was determined to get it. It took about a month of my wife and I
working our jobs (I got min. wage back then, about $2.65 an hour), but
we finally saved up, only to learn a "movie producer" bought it a week
or two before.
Fast forward a few decades and I'm watching an interview with GL and lo
and behold, there's the rocket ship gumball machine behind him! Same
paint job as I remembered it. Had to be the same one, considering the
rarity of the item, and that Black Falcon and other Lucas companies were
located very close to the store at that time. These days you can
sometimes find them for about $500-1,000.
Oh well. The one with the money wins out first. I'm sure I spent my $95
of some other junk.
The great GL is indeed great and all powerful....But taking candy from
you(well a candy machine) is certainly unforgivable. I think you
should write him of this travesty......Or,
again just yell out your name and phone number(wait till you are alone
in the house-Lest you get committed to an asylum by family members)
and mention him in the rant.......He will certainly "hear" and contact
you(or his legal team for taunting him with the past). At the very
least take a tour of the place and grab a whole handful of mints from
the craft table. (If you do send me one!)
Hope you are getting some free time to spend on your Budget robotics
business. Last I heard from you, you didnt have much time to do any
I miss the other robotics site you created some time back also.
Now proceed to plot your revenge........
