It was a "Standard Thursday Lunch" meet that was anything but standard. It started off so ordinary...

Satchel pondering Lord Vader's dilemma



A feared question, coming from the man in this mask...



The Imperial lunch table, including Anakin taking his last breaths



And of course, what Darth Vader pictorial would be complete without this shot?

Meal picked up from the food synthesizer



"Now, I will feel the power of the buffalo..."



Will this be addressed in one of Lucas' future "remakes"?

And for the motion-inclined: A brief movie of Vader placing his order. No sound, though; sorry!

I <heart> bryanmc.

You just gotta love a guy who isn't afraid to show up in a Texas burger joint wearing a homemade Darth Vader outfit. (Excellent work on the costume, by the way!)

I'm such a wuss by comparison.

By the way, if any of you MUST have higher res versions of the second group of pics, look in the dir that the pics are in for the ones beginning with 1 (one). I'm too lazy to post links or rename them.

I'd say he looks about 30 (32 maybe?) in his avatar. So you think he looks 10 or 12 in the pics?

I think the most surprising thing to me is what the restaurant looks like.

For some reason, I expected a larger, table service type place, and not some hole in the wall lunch counter dump.

Makes me want to go there even more.

It's almost creepy how much you look like Anakin at the end of ROTJ, Bryan! Minus the scars and stuff, of course.

Oh, it's hole in the wall.

You've got to be careful and not sit down too quick or you'll slide off the chair because of the grease film on the vinal.
