Interesting fact:
Jim: “I worked at Industrial Light & Magic during the late 90’s. I personally worked on such films as Galaxy Quest, The Mummy, and Space Cowboys. I even got to appear as an extra in Star Wars Episode 1. I first learned about robotic combat during those years, and have been addicted ever since.”
