Some of you guys were asking for more 'oven' pics over on Geordie's thread about repro weapons...
Me and a couple of loose figures had a little ritual earlier using some alcohol gel, a match, and a small batch of evil repro weapons - including a snowtrooper skirt, a gaffi stick, and some blasters...
Here are the results...

Well done Jay, at least that's a few more repro's out of circulation (I trust there weren't any we need for the guide? ).

Clint... yeah, I agree and I have a few pinholed in mine customs area, but those are painted and I couldn't bring myself to painting originals. I try to use vintage ones for most of them but I get it.
Paul... nice pics!
Mine was spur of the moment so no thoughts were given to an audience. haha
Steve... nope... all the weapons were run of the mill and documented including the revalveit Ben DT.
I thought I sent the pics of the repro capes over with the legit ones but they aren't in the TIG guide. I still have them on my site of course if you want to add them here. LBI Capes

great video Jay
I love your fire safety too - water in one hand and a bottle of lighter fluid 5 inches away from your fire

:But man, all that melting plastic must have made the room smell bad!!!
I did this outside on a garbage can lid, but forgot that the kitchen window was close so the house quickly started smelling like crap and I got yelled at so I had to put it out fast.
And yeah, the lighter fluid was a little close! I removed my voice, but in the video I was saying shit, that is a little close before I moved it.
I did post it on FB last night (v1 just my voice before I did titles and music) after I did it and now I see one new fire video and a post saying a guy is going to... yet my comment with video got no comments. Weird timing... I think the 4th of July weekend makes everyone think of fire!!! haha

Jay, I notice an adult beverage the vid...true Jersey style my friend. Ha! I would have gotten yelled at for using a kitchen plate more so than for the smell. Worth it.
