    Actually it's a toy.. The 2010 rerelease of the original but it's 4 inches taller and way more improved..

    Thanks everyone for the positive feedback..

    I still need to work on the base and some fiber optics from the tracer ram to the front guns:)

    There is a video somewhere on youtube of a person in a darth vader suit taking one for a walk like a dog. I had the one from the 80s

    How are you going to fit an ATX board into an AT case?
    Is that a little to geeky?

    Yet another Star Wars rig! Great idea! IMO the black/blue sleeving is better for this theme, but yours is looks great too :)

    Very nice job!
    It appears that you have to keep the sides open the entire time it's running though. Have you thought about making a cross ventilation fan setup? You could try replacing the side panels with Modder mesh (mnpctech.com has it) and paint it to match the exterior color. Or even a downdraft fan off the top area. It would be less noticeable from up there as well.
    Again, great job, I like the whole diorama aspect of it too.

    just a quick update... installing a fan on the inside at the top for more airflow so i can put the plexi doors on.

    the more i put in this the harder it is to take apart and redo or update.. funny that LOL
