Old R2N Customs Added at

Posted by Pete | August 30, 2004 at 12:09 AM ET |

     The fine folks over at BeJedi have done a great service for the on-line Star Wars community this week...check this out...all of the Custom work that was once displayed in ArtoosNews' Customs have been integrated into the Customizing Corner so that they are now available for all to see once again!

     "We took contact with the late R2N Customs Master, Shannon, and received permission from him to host the art work that was previously featured on the Artoo's Customs. We are very happy to announce that from today all of these customs are migrated to our Custom Galleries, which can be found following the link to our Customs pages and then by selecting the Galleries link in there.
     If your customs could be seen previously at R2N, they can now be seen again here. If you now suddenly find that you have a Gallery here, please understand that it was impossible for us to contact each and every customiser individually to ask permission whether or not we could feature his or her customs. If, for some reason, you would therefore like to remove your customs from our Galleries, contact to make that known. But we are sure that you should instead enjoy the hospitality of and add your recent works to your BJ.c Gallery.
     Moreover, if you are a customiser but weren't previously on R2N, you can also get your own Gallery with us.
      R2N and Shannon, we salute thee and hope we can live up to delivering the same quality services that you brought the Star Wars community!"

 has added some new, but older, posters to their inventory today.
         The first being the old 1983 Fan Club Poster featuring Rebel and Imperial ships flying over the Forest Moon of Endor with the second Death Star in the background. This poster was originally released to Fan Club Members only, and is now a Exclusive.
         The Next Poster is actually a set of 2 posters used to promote the "Caravan Of Courage" movie. The made for T.V. movie centered around Ewoks helping some lost Human Children find their parents after a crash landing on Endor. The set includes both versions A and B. This set is also a exclusive.
         The last, but not least, as it is one of my personal favs, is the Version A Teaser poster from Episode 2. This poster has Anakin and Padme, back to back, with a cryptic message above them. The message points out some of the possible perils a Jedi faces, his emotions.
