Is this seller the star fortress guy?
Don't know who's the star fortress guy but this seller in question owns a toy/novelty shop in Singapore call Pan-In-The-Box, same name as his ebay store. I've been to his shop but I just hear he's moved and now I have no idea where the shop's located. He has some neat stuff in his shop and seems he's into costume & accessories now. A very nice company to deal with. They once held onto 3 figure for me for almost 6 mths with only a 20% deposit.
They look ok, but not accurate. Are they the steadler pen caps? Doesn't look like it.
No those are definitely not the correct steadler pen caps. Don't think they're modelled after any existing steadler pen caps either.
I own three things from this gentleman..the Jedi belt, the Food capsules and the Pouches. I for one am very- VERY satisfied with them. And I really liked the price. Sure the Food caps are not made from Staedler, but they are still very cool. Sure, the pouches are not leather and are made from a foam type substance, but who cares. They are still functioning and are a piece of "My" Jedi costume and creational look.
I as tanthos am very saticfied with moy pouches and food capsules that I purchased from this gentleman they are very nice and are a part of my jedi garb as well. Here is a link to his ebay store stores.ebay.com/Pan-In-The-Box
The functionality of Smokesppon's food capsules is the precise reason that I purchased them from him. As to what to put in them try this on for size... There are food tablets easily found on Amazon. These tablets are survival rations (3 tablets four times a day) to be taken in the absense of food. Furthermore, these tablets are chewable (which means that you could break them up or even smash them into powder if you so desired). Let us now take this further... Three tablets four times per day. Jedi food capsules are often worn on the belt in groups of four. And so, with three tablets in each food capsule (either whole or broken up) each group of four Jedi food capsules on your belt is precisely one day's worth of emergency food rations. Isn't that precisely what the capsules were used for by the Jedi in the first place?! Because of this idea these particular food capsules are, perhaps, the most realistic prop in any Jedi ensemble. And this is precisely why I purchased these food capsules to begin with. And it's a much more realistic application than filling them with candy.
Here you go... www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000301E4I?v=glance This should take you right to the tablet page. If not just look for "Survival food tablets" on www.amazon.com They're $29.00 per bottle but they have a very long shelf life. Think about it... you're at Celebration IV and in a long line to see a speaker. You're hungry but don't want to lose your place in line to go get some food. You pull a food capsule off of your belt and open it up. A single serving of three tablets (one Jedi food capsule) and you should be alright. And if, by some chance, you filled all your capsules with the ration tablets, you could have enough to hold out for days if you really had to. It probably wouldn't assuage your hunger too much, but you would get all the nutrients and such that you need to make it through the lines. Add to that the fact that you would look like the coolest Jedi at the con because you were using functional and realistic props.
