One more thing.... you did a Watchman faceplate using stickers that I had made for you and I can't find a pic of it anywhere. I know you posted it. I looked through your folder and didn't see it. Would you post it again? It was just the yellow lettering and the face painted straight onto the faceplate.

I am working on your pics, getting ready to upload them. I have 72 pictures of JUST your faceplates.

Dude, you're from Rebelscum? I was from CollectStarWars.com when it was Bananapunk's site. They sold to Rebelscum, and then after a year when the no-compete clause was up, he started the Bounty Hunters Collective at GalacticHunter.com. I freakin' lived at that site for years. I collected, and made custom figures there. I was even in ToyFare a couple of times. I had thousands of posts at colelctstarwars.com, 2800 at Rebelscum, and 200-something at galactichunter.com before I just gave up on the SW figure collecting thing. I'm still addicted to looking for them, but I can't hardly make myself spend eight bucks on a figure anymore.

Welcome to the faceplate side. :)

(I even got the shirt: http://www.cafepress.com/cp/store.aspx?s=bhc )

**EDIT again** I went back to RebelScum and read some of my posts. Now I remember why I left. The video game fanboys in there were worse than any site I'd ever visited. I'd say the word "Xbox" and thirty people would tear me to shreds. I said screw it and left. C'est la vie.

Hmm that's a very tough choice lol, the game is so huge. Well it would be cool to have the logo of course (the one on the box would work), then the SR2 (Normandy), with a planet in the background (maybe blue and green like earth, or something which resembles earth). It would probably look best with a black background.

Any chance you're able to paint disk drive covers too?

Hey everyone, as you may have noticed I have not been making a lot of faceplates lately. I am sad to say that my Dad lost his fight with cancer a few days ago due to breathing complications at MD Anderson. A few days before he died, my Dad took a blank faceplate I had and wrote me a note for when he was gone. This faceplate means the world to me now and I proudly use it on my Xbox now. Just thought I would share it with you all :)

03-25-2010, 02:00 PM

You have some cool faceplates but I am in the UK so it kinda cuts me out.

Air Effex
05-29-2010, 09:12 AM
Yes, that is the only faceplate I have from him. He wrote that faceplate to me 10 days before he went into a coma and died. He told me he could feel his insides shutting down so he knew he didn't have a whole lot of time left so he wanted to leave me a note to me for when he was gone. That faceplate means the world to me.

SingingTurnip
05-29-2010, 09:35 AM
Yeah i can just imagine it would. Have you put anything over it to stop he ink fading or anything?

Also is it just a biro he used?

Air Effex
05-29-2010, 03:40 PM
No, I am afraid to try and clear coat it, I'm scared the ink may bleed or something. And its just an oem faceplate with one of those fine point sharpies. Do you. have any ideas on how to preserve it?

SingingTurnip
05-30-2010, 07:55 AM
In all honesty I was hoping you was going to say that you had sprayed it with some kind of thing to preserve it, you got me off guard mentioning the bleeding - I never even considered it.

What you could do is frame as someone already said and maybe have the pen laid next to it too.

I have no idea what you could use to preserve it unless you can get "a clear sticker" to cover it. Which should in theory protect from dust also.
