Hrm, looks like I was wrong about the Duke parts.

Still curious where this torso and upper arms, and Snake-Bite's lower arms and legs are from.

I like how you modded the Para-Viper's rig. Can't help but wonder now, if the AVAC helmet is hollowed out, or an interchangeable head.

Great Newsletter as usual.  I loved the story about Japan and the bootlegs.  Great work on the guests, it should make it a great CON for sure.

After missing the last two months I'm just glad I could finally get back into the news letter. I had fun writting the bootleg story.

Heh. As the con is pretty much done "at cost" - we'd need a few THOUSAND more attendees to afford Sienna.

Woah, you got some cool guests and interviewees, guys!  Hope you had a great time in Japan!

One last thing: I don't mean to sound like a hater, but for the photos from page 13 one, please please please turn off the flash next time.  Light the area well, white balance the camera, put it on a tripod, and enable Macro mode (the one with the flower icon) if you're for close-up detail shots of small things.

I work with what I got. Besides, my wife took the pics for me this month. I had some other things going on at home at the time. We tried macro and no flash but it didn't work and I don't have a tripod for this wee camera.

Don't worry about the equipment, Mors!  You can make it worth with a little bit of MacGuyvering.  Rest the camera on a pile of books or something and light the area with desk lamps, for example.
