It was a massive weekend for Mad Max fans as the Wasteland Weekend Event took over a section of the California desert. Described on their website as a “three-day post-apocalyptic party in the desert”, this was the ultimate 2010 destination for fans of all things Mad Max. Oh, and did we mention that costumes were required to attend this event? I wonder if the AbbyShot Max Jacket made an appearance…
The Associated Press visited the event and posted a 3-minute report on their YouTube account. Let’s play “spot the AbbyShot“, shall we?
Yes indeed, that’s our friend Paul Miller in the AP video (starting about 1:30 in) sporting all of his AbbyShot Mad Max Gear: Jacket, Gloves, AND Badges! Folks familiar with the Mad Max fan community will also recognize Karol Bartoszynski, he is an active costumer and also the webmaster of fan site MadMaxCostumes.com.
And what can we say about those muscle cars?
(We want one… scratch that… we NEED one…
Anyhow, speaking of muscle cars: Paul Miller just let us know about a cool project he’s working on featuring a double-dose of Mad Max goodness! It’s a fan film set just after the 1st “Mad Max”, featuring both his pristine Mad Max replica car AND the AbbyShot Mad Max Gear!
Welcome to the world of “Mad Max Renegade”…
Paul tells us that he’s hoping to have this 10-minute short film finished by January. We will certainly keep you posted on all the Mad Max Renegade news, it looks like it’s going to be a blast!
