Interesting Shocktrooper deal: //cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=60361&item=7523075599&rd=1 Ends in 1 day, 15 hours... Needs front/back plates plus velcro/glue to complete... Reasons I'm not taking: - Don't like red; - Trooper Budget: < RM1K (excl. shipping of around RM200-300).
I suspect that the parts and methods in that ebook probaby won't apply to us Malaysians, as we do not have Walmart, K-mart, Homedepot, or any of those big DIY stores they have in US, except maybe for ACE hardware and that one in Ikea 1U. But then again I've combed every tiny inch of both those stores during my last visit there and only found some meagre parts for lightsaber making. A would-be lightsaber maker is better off learning from the FREE tutorial put up right here in MySciFiFan by our very own Scratchbuild at the The Defined Hardware Saber Thread.
Otherwise there are numerous tutorials online that one can benefit from, and my bet is they'd be better and more detailed then this ebook...

To all Rebel fleet trooper (aka Tantive IV defenders) recruits out there! There's this fan-made helmet maker that is doing a new run of new ABS Rebel Fleet trooper helmets (with flip-down visor) and is asking me whether anyone's interested. Meanwhile, I've asked for the price (fixed or Ebay), expected delivery date etc. For sample pics, please go here: cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7529933504&category=60346&ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1 This one seems much more affordable than the (slightly undersized?) Altmanns.
