Gives away little boxes, cuts up wookie purse. Some of us have Wookie chap-stick and nowhere to put it Adam.


#3

You don’t keep the gray at bay for 30 years in between trilogies with just a comb.


#4

They’re not wookiee treat boxes. They are wookie condom holders. Each box holds 1 wookie sheath. XXXXXXXXXXXXL. The little boxes are for lube.


#5

Help me out, @Mister44. I can’t be the only nerd here who remembers that Wookiee has two Es.


#6

Before I learned to spell properly, I was disappointed to find out that wookiees didn’t live in the Wookey Hole Caves.

35 years later, I think I am still disappointed.


#7

I just can’t get enough of Youtube videos of talented people building/making stuff!


#8

Yep. Two "ee"s.

Though you boned the opportunity to say “Help me, Mister.44, you’re my only hope.”


#9

So, looking at wookiepedia

I see this:

WTF is that supposed to mean?


#10

I think I prefer the videos where Savage designs the prop, rather than duplicating one he already has.


#11

I have the same problem with most cosplayers. That’s really neat stuff but I’d like to see them do their own stuff.


#12

This is the biggest complaint I hear from the older generation of fen; when literature defined fandom, science fiction movies were a rare treat.

Now that every other big blockbuster is science fiction, conventions are a completely different experience. For those who miss it, I totally understand the nostalgia. But if this is the price of living in yesterday’s future, I’m OK with it.


#13

Am I the only one who cringed when he drilled into those boxes after having already sealed them up?

For as long as those props exist, that empty void will have just a little bit of aluminum shavings rattling around inaide.


#14

Wookiees like to snack on Aluminum shavings?


#15

It’s not just that. I really like hearing about the research aspect of prop making. Here, he assembles a prop kit that was made to specs reverse engineered from the original "Hero Blaster"

And this one day build was about designing a prop from minimal reference material.


#16

Don’t get me wrong that’s cool. Adam is a bad example, but I get frustrated to some people who seems to don’t have any imagination of their own.
Don’t mind me, I’m just grumpy and sick of Star Wars.


#17

Just as one can never forget: it’s Kashyyyk, not Kashyk.


#18

When Adam had to re-do the snapbelt, did anyone else find the need to scream:
###***“Not a god, but a man!!”***

No? So, it was just me?


#19

I don’t know if this is the canonical pronunciation, but in my head I remember it by treating the second Y as a consonant.

Ka-SHEE-yik.

Some may think you are taking this far too seriously.

Not me though. :clap:
