You've heard of Stairway to Heaven? How about a Subway to Star Wars?!!

That's right! Your local Subway restaurants are offering little Tyvek bags with characters from the Star Wars “Rebels” show on them. There are 6 to collect: Chopper, the Inquisitor, an Imperial Stormtrooper, Kanan, Hera, and Sabine. They're free with the purchase of any kids meal, but I was able to talk the girl behind the counter into selling them to me and not have to buy kid sized portions. I mean c'mon, I was already buying a footlong spicy Italian sandwich, a bag of Cheetos, and three white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. She said she would sell them to me for $1.00 a piece, but only charged me for five of them, what a deal! I'm not sure how long they've been out, or how long they're going to remain, so I'd get on 'em faster than a Jawa on a lone, lost droid traveling through the Jundland Wastes!

You can view all six Rebels bags here!



Long time no see!

Just about 5 years ago we posted a story about another Star Wars web comic called MotionPicturesComics.com. The artist had done a series about The Phantom Menace. Earlier this week I was notified by the artist that he's completed his Prequel Trilogy send-ups, with Star Wars: Episode III. It's good stuff! Kinda like shooting fish in a barrel... but you can only work with the material you're given. You should check it out!

If you want to recap his Attack of the Clones series before tackling Sith, here's our original story for that.



Astonishing high-quality LEGO bootlegs!

Collecting bootlegs - unlicensed, mass-produced copies of legit Star Wars collectibles - is a popular endeavor in the hobby. And one draw of bootlegs is their typically awful QC. From Mexican/South American bootlegs which look to have been cast and painted by school children, to Polish bootlegs which all have ...

Jumping into the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge craze on YouTube, my brother had an idea for his TV station (BPTV)... have one of his channel's personalities call out Darth Vader. It just so happens he knew someone with Darth Vader armor...

I was extremely happy to loan out the armor to support a good cause.



Another scoop for ya!

Posted on Official Pix's website on Sun, Oct 6th: (And nothing about it on theForce.net or Rebelscum so far.)

Clive Revill Autograph Pre-Order & Send-In Opportunity.
Big news! You can now order four different licensed photographs or send in your own items to be signed by actor Clive Revill! Also, make plans to attend Dallas Comic Con: Fan Days and meet Clive in person at the Official Pix booth this October!

They have two 8 x 10's available for $44.99 apiece, two 10 x 20 Metallix images for $64.99, and of course their send in service for $39.99, but they're only accepting the following: Photos, LP Covers, lobby cards, 27 x 41 posters or smaller, trading cards, small books, and other flat paper items. No toys, large books statues, etc...If unsure, please inquire first.

It also states that Mr. Revill prefers not to sign memorabilia from the version of Episode V where he was replaced by Ian McDiarmid, so don't send anything in like that at it probably won't be signed.

Orders will be taken through Wed, Oct 1st and are expected to ship late October.



Fine Art

My Droids Zuckuss is still mired in production delays. It'll get done eventually - just need for some things to play out for the supplier.

Since I can't really post much about my own art, I figured I'd share some from another artist. I was at the Walnut Street Art Festival in Pittsburgh last weekend, appreciating the varied and interesting art on display. One guy though, caught my particular attention. Greg Stones had some original art on display, including this Star Wars piece:

Fine art indeed! But it certainly fits with his style and humor. I checked his site for prints, but I'm guessing since it's not licensed he's only able to sell the original. If you're so inclined, it's still listed as available on his web site. Tell him CreatureCantina.com sent you!



Another SW T.V. show on the horizon, w/some big names attached!

That's right! Another SW-themed show will be beamed down to our television sets sometime next year, (dates and channel TBA) and they're bringing back “The Clone Wars” BOO-YAH!!! I'm sure you all remember the story arc where the bounty hunter was kidnapping Jedi children and taking them to Mustafar so Darth Sidious could brainwash them? Well they're turning that three episode story into a full-fledged, live action, hour long program, with thirteen episodes planned for the first season. And they've cast none other than Bryan Cranston to play the bounty hunter! Samuel L. Jackson, Hayden Christensen, and Ian McDiarmid were approached about reprising their roles, but had to turn them down due to commitments with other projects. So who did they get instead??? How about Giancarlo Esposito, Aaron Paul, and Jonathan Banks!!! Why did they cast this particular quartet, and why are they only focusing on these three episodes and not a whole season, you ask? It didn't make any sense to me either until I heard the title of the show... “Breaking Cad”.

CreatureCantina.com would like to wish a happy anniversary to The Star Wars Collectors Archive! 20 years ago, Gus Lopez and a group of other disreputables started a Vintage collecting guide that would go on to be the unrivaled reference across the globe. Over the years I've been honored to have a smattering of my collectibles featured on the Archive, and am proud to have played a small part in building this amazing resource. There really is no better source of knowledge for Vintage Star Wars. We wish everyone affiliated with SWCA many more happy years, and congratulate you on a stellar record of serving the community!



Screentime

Before the Neo-Tresob, I was an over-worked, under-employed chap who could excuse hours upon hours playing epic PC games or questing through Hyrule on my Wii. I deserved a break after all.

I was a man of leisure.

These days, I'm still over-worked and even more under-employed, but there's no way you can excuse a romp through Skyrim when a flesh and blood neophyte is howling in the next room, demanding food be inserted and/or removed.

This means it has been weeks...weeks...since I've had a chance to really dig into a deep game. Heck, I'm not even sure I remember what a video game looks like...am I playing a video game right now?
