    I like it, to be honest. Has a Robocop/Bladerunner kind of feel to it.

    Sweet.:D -Pity it had to fit into a theme. You could have snuck a folding handle in the area in front of the card reader.
    @Waynio - A vanity button would let you rep yourself. -Don't think I haven't tried!:lol:

    MaxPC told me the PC is a Hit at Comic-Con :clap: Here is the Giveaway replica with David Gerrold, Original TV series writer and for whom we did the 1st case for. It feels good to see we accomplished our mission!

    btw: I'm now on Google+ and blogging a mixture of what I consider cool stuff with PC case modding tossed in. Old and new Geek / Motorhead stuff that inspires me, like custom car & bike builders, tools, gadgets, and of course PCs!... I have plenty of Google+ Invites left, just PM your Email addy....

    Amazing case, and congrats on the exposure, you deserve it!

    Although the winner listed it for 8K, it seems... a little off!

    Yeah, congrats on the whole deal man! Nice to see your work being appreciated as much as it should! :)

    Damn... Maybe I should put my Nintendo WII on ebay... And I'm not greedy, $5000 would be enough for me... :lol:

    Hmmm...Seeing how it came into the shop on a forklift... I'm not gonna guess it's worth. If I go too high, Bob Barker will kick me off the stage.

    And he IS a black belt so I don't think you would want that cheaps :hehe:

    When it comes to Bob Barker the :wallbash: doesn't indicate his frustration, it indicates him being able to break a brick wall with his mellon. HI-YA!


    Final product looks so slick though, definitely the kind of work that any modder would be proud of. Exposure and credits are well deserved mate! Always love your work :thumb:
