    I had a friend (more friend of a friend) that wore the Anakin Skywalker (Episode I version) of the Commtech chip around his neck all the time (still may, for all I know, I’m not in contact with him). I mocked him for it every chance I got, even though the reason he wore it was because it was a gift from his little brother…

    I’m kind of a dick sometimes.

    How many is “too many”?
    Now I kinda want to be the Mr. T of Commtech chips.

  • Mikester says:

    Perhaps the title of this post is a bit harsh. You know, if you did do this…rock on, dudes. Who am I to judge?

  • Nate says:

    Hey, I I don’t want to mislead. I don’t own any of these. But my Gawd, the thoughts of someone with 24 chains of these just walking around like they just don’t care.

    It’s magnificent.

    Like smoking a pipe while wearing a Hawaiian shirt and riding a recumbent bicycle.

  • Max Veers says:

    One could wear all the CommTech chips and, using the reader, speak entirely in quotes from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

    That, my friends, is the Dream.

  • Evan Waters says:

    Were there Commtech chips produced for any other movie? I wonder if the manufacturer’s plan wasn’t for this to be the next big thing, only to be undone by the success of the “…. in my Pocket” line.

  • Casey says:

    I totally wore one while playing, before quickly realizing it didn’t make sense in any scenario I could imagine.

  • Derooftrouser says:

    I WAS JUST STORING THEM ROUND MY NECK WHILE I MOVED THE FIGURES.

    IT WAS A CONVENIENT WAY TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER.

    Didn’t? I still do!

    Okay, not really. I came across a couple of unopened Episode I figures recently and actually had a very hard time explaining what they were to my 5-year-old. I don’t think I ever owned the “reader” which was shaped like a prop from Episode I that was based on a ladies razor.

  • Snark Shark says:

    did they make chips for Quotes people actually LIKE? Like Darth Vaders “Father” line? Or “I’ve got a bad feeling about this”?

    NO ONE cares what jarjar says!

  • No one might give a crap about what JarJae thinks, but the “Explosion sound effect” that follows after his line might mean that he gets blowd up real good.

    And THAT would bring joy to everyone.

    ~P~

  • Dammit… JarJar. Not JarJae.
    FIRST he screws up the franchise.
    NOW he screws up my (admittedly bad) joke.

    HE MUST DIE!
    (Where’s that damned explosion sound effect?)

  • Casey says:

    BABOOM!

  • Snark Shark says:

    send jarjar to..

    KOREA!!!

    We were supposed to wear these chains on our balls, right?
