I just wanted to take a minute to thank Corey AKA Amptrooper for having the idea to create the IRA. The IRA has never been about one person and it took several people in the early days to create the site and get it off the ground. But.......Corey had the idea and took the lead. Corey was the one to rally us all together in those early days. Corey was the one that had the initial vision and direction he wanted the site to take. We've changed a bit over the years, but I believe we've always stayed true to the initial vision that Corey had.
We've come along way in the last five years. Many times we never thought we'd see 100 members. Now with over 2000 members and over a dozen vendors we're stronger than ever and continuting to grow.
Sadly, Corey is still suffering health issues from his accident and also a number of other serious personal issues. I know he really misses the forum and wishes he could be here. Corey, you will be missed, never forgotten, and ALWAYS welcome back in any role you choose.
I'm so glad Corey started this forum several yeas ago and very glad he invited me over to it back in the day. It's nice to be able to go to a custom saber forum where one can talk about any sabersmith or vendor (as long as we're not bad mouthing them of course), no matter what their reputation is in this hobby. That's one of the things that makes this forum great. This forum also allowed to me to sell my Razor blade plugs here and has always been beneficial in that regard. The list goes on. I am very glad to be a part of this forum so thank you Corey.
Rogue Five: I was hoping it would be rereleased in theaters for the 40th but alas 'tis not to be

Rogue Five: As much as I hated Waltless Disney buying Lucasfilm, the one good thing I thought could happen was a rerelease of the unaltered trilogy. But turns out they weren't even good for that.

ZahcStarKiller: Buying supplies to install the OM Obi TPM... Anyone know what the best Tri-Cree combo would be without doing RBG? BBW? rB/B/W?

ZahcStarKiller: Best combo specifically for TPM Obi I mean.

Rogue Five: His saber looks like a pure rB/rB/W(Y?) to me

ZahcStarKiller: Lol! I don't know about that. I'm awfully attached to it already and it's completely empty.

ZahcStarKiller: I plan to post a full install and reveal thread.
