IIRC a few years back a certain "Expert" put a myth round that the RotJ trooper decals had a purple-ish tinge to them. I was able to knock this on the head with pics of a couple opf original ESB's (one colour-matched) which showed they were just the same dull grey

Yeah well, sadly I am color blind to darker hues and to me it looks purple-ish blue. At least I didnt buy AA's lines of BS hook line and sinker like someone I know. :rolleyes

Last April when I was at the archives doing work I did find an unused set of ROTJ decals and I did not get a chance to take photos of them. I can say that there are different color degrees as well from the 30+ helmets left tossed into boxes there. Is there a correct color? Sure.. but again they do vary from helmet to helmet...

Matt, why don't you start watermarking your pics?

Thats not the point. People seem to think they can use whatever, whenever they want to. I have had to threaten legal action for using my name, my screen name and also my pics in ebay auctions.

Its the principle f the matter. I just dont feel like being nice after having stuff ripped off all the time and no one cares.

Matt,

If you send it to me, I can do up the graphics such that your name will most certainly be attributed to the photo. It would be a valuable resource.

I appreciate the offer, but in the end the se photos will not be released. I have 5 or 6 CD's worth of just the ANH stuff and there are obvious reasons as to why they wont be shared.

Everyone thinks they have the most accurate ANH suit, (esp. little gino) and they dont. I even had no clue about details the camera doesnt see until I handled the suits and worked with them for 2 weeks.

One day maybe but not anytime real soon am afraid.

Matt, thats a load of crap and you know it.

Seems you relish in coming onto sites like this time and time again with the same "I've got some super great photos but I'm not prepared to share them with you" garbage.

You did it on white armour - asking some ridiculous price for your photo's, only to back down when people called you on it.

It comes across like someone begging for attention and is incredibly unimpresive :rolleyes

Cheers

It has been peaceful lately and debates have been constructive for the most part.

Lets just keep the thread on track.

So a friendly warning that we can do without hostility.

Well Jez, I will share but even your site has had 'issues' with not giving credit where credit is due. I have had to tell you to give the credit or remove photos numerous times. to your credit, you do.. but against you, postings have happened without peoples ok's as well.

And again, they are my photos and I can do what I like with them. The AA trial will be over and done with in a few days and I will be more than happy to post one or two that will make people shit themselves.

I have already shown a few of the photos on the whitearmor boards and I will do a few here as well.

Matt, Not sure with what you refer.

My site does most certainly give credit, where it is due. If people feel I've not done this then I always do my best to put it right if its warranted. As a case in point, originally I referred to your helmets as "TE" until you asked that they be referred to as "Anon", which I complied with until you said you were happy with "TE" again. Whatever way you want it!

You certainly can do whatever you want with your pics. The fact that you prefer to sell them for exorbitant sums is completely your call. My point was that I don’t see why you feel the need to rub people’s noses in it.

The ethos of SWHelmets and IMO this hobby is based on sharing and I find it disappointing when the attitude of others is at odds with that.

When the AA case is over a lot of info and pics will come out. It started today.

Cheers

Jez

Who said sharing was the ethos of this hobby? I got news for you all. I am the only one that cast an ANH helmet and offered people the chance to get a copy. Not gino or anyone else that ripped off my work I did back in 1999.

So dont try to say I haven't shared with you all. I have done more sharing than anyone else here has. About the pics, I have had to email you many times to say whose pics you are using or take them down.

Yes I know the AA trial already started. I was the first to know... It was over before it even began. The evidence against him is so overwhelming he STILL thinks he can win and decided to pursue this fantasy he created the look of the stormtroopers.

Bye AA!... nice to know you!.. dont let it hit you where the good Lord split you!

T*E

Maybe you should delete all the crap since a certain person said he had pics but wouldnt share. Including this post thats the last 15.

Cheers
