Looks like Photobucket all of a sudden wants $400 a year, if posting the links of the hosted photos to other sites or to forums. It is not the first time Photubucket screwed their members. Long ago I was a paying Photobucket member, and still they deleted 90% of my photos, and I was not alone in this, it happened to a lot of people, including RPF and Prop Den members. I will not pay them a dime anymore, they can go frak themselves
:protest

Well that sucks. I thought photo*ucket was making enough money on ads and their printing services which I've used before. Probably won't again after pulling this stunt. I'm wondering what Verizon is planning to do with Flickr since they now own Yahoo (which owned Flickr). The 1Tb of free space may have just been a loss leader with a similar tactic in mind.

For the disappointed Photobucket users which had their images missing "thanks" to their new policy change, there seems to be a solution in the form of an add-on for Mozilla and Chrome which makes the Photobucket photos visible again:

Iron Studios Darth Vader, a superb 1/4 statue. Wasn't sure at first if I like it, but seeing more pics online, decided to go for it.

It looks fantastic, it really deserved the 2017 Statue of the Year prize at Statue Forum. Accuracy is quite reasonable, better than other statues and figures by other companies, the materials used seem to be high quality. It is one big heavy piece! I like the less mixed media present on this statue, you only have the pleather belt and the two fabric capes with wire, everything else is polystone. And the polystone is well sculpted and painted, showing intricate details of the costume. Excellent way of weathering the capes with snow, so much better than the Mythos orange Vader weathering. The base is also very impressive on its own. I think this might be one of the BEST Star Wars statues ever made, definitely the best Vader for now!

Steamed up the huge cape to remove the creases and tried to pose it the best I could so far. I also added 4 furniture pads on the base to protect it from scratches. Left hand is hard to remove if wanting to change the stance, the magnet is quite powerful. Added 3 Panasonic Eneloop batteries instead of the regular AA's, and removed all those tiny cell batteries from the belt and chestbox, which I'm afraid could leak in time. Wish the electronics would have used a single button, or at least a different way to turn on the belt and the chestbox, but I rarely use lights so is kinda ok. Not sure why the eyes seem green.
