New Leia message video shoot

I've re-shot the Leia message video with my girlfriend Leah as Leia. Here are some photos I took during the process. I'm editing the footage down and keying out the green, and adding the raster effects. I'll make these files available to the club as soon as I'm done.

Pottery Barn R2 Soft-sided Lunch Box

I had R2-G4 at the local Pottery Barn Kids store for the second year of promoting their line of Star Wars items. I spotted a sweet soft-sided lunchbox with a cool embroidered R2 patch on it, and checked it out. It's heavy fabric, with many tough seams and good padding. Plus the embroidered patch itself is kinda impressive. There are even hooks on the back to attach it to a backpack or belt.

As I was looking it over, my buddy Derek casually said "I bet your Futaba radio would fit perfectly in there" and guess what?

It did.

There's a mesh zipper pocket that can hold cables or other stuff, and there's even room for a spare battery.

They are $22. I got one on the spot. I talked to the store manager, and she said she would give free shipping to anyone who called her store and ordered one of these lunch bags if you say Chris Lee sent you and you are with the R2 Builders Group.

Call the Green Hills Pottery Barn Kids store at 615-385-2567 and ask for Caron or Patti.
