FULLER’S VINTAGE 2014

Happy St. George's Day!

Ah, Fuller’s Vintage! I missed out on the 2013 edition, because after carrying the line for three years, our local Sainsbury’s supermarkets decided to drop it without warning. I waited to see if they’d pick it up again this year, and they didn’t. I had ...

West Coast time

I've returned from an epic adventure in Anaheim, California. It really was spectacular. I got to hang out with good friends from across the globe. I attended some sweet Rebels, Clone Wars and Collecting Track panels. I presented one of the best-received Collecting Track panels myself (all credit to Skye Paine and Bill McBride). I also had the opportunity to interview a couple guys from Hasbro, and took hundreds of photos at Celebration. I have a thousand things to write up. But I'm also back in the real world, and exhausted from jet lag and the time change. So it'll be a few days before I get to it. For now, I'm happy to share one of the most notable things I saw at the Room Sales. If you know what this is, you'll be impressed. If you don't... well... just know that's a super rare POTF coin, and this is how it was sold in Japan.

Cable's secret Celebration art project REVEALED!

So, you have no idea how many art projects I was involved in for Celebration Anaheim. These past 3 months have been mostly a blur. One thing after another. I need a vacation or something. Wonder where I could go...

I'm happy to finally reveal one of those projects: the Celebration Anaheim: Vader Case Project! Similar to the Vader and Stormtrooper helmet art projects of the past, this one features artists who've decorated Vintage Darth Vader action figure cases. The cases will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. My humble submission was inspired by my current favorite musical entertainers. Enjoy! And bid high!

Happy 14th Anniversary CreatureCantina.com!

Wow... that sure snuck up on me. With a thousand things to get ready for Celebration, I completely forgot what day it was. It turns out today is the anniversary of the site... and it falls on a Wednesday when I typically post the week's news. Nice coincidence.

I guess it goes without saying that we won't have any sort of contest or prizes to celebrate. And we're probably not going to send out any sort of press release. We'll just sit here by ourselves. I didn't even buy a cake, so I'll probably munch on some crackers. Fun times. Woo!



Gettin' ready!

Got my flight, hotel, and transportation to and from all booked. Autograph tickets, photo-ops, Rancho Obi-Wan merch. & artist prints are all pre-ordered. My Celebration badge came in the mail awhile ago. So we're good to go! But is Gentle Giant having an exclusive? What about Hasbro? (I know they're not having a panel.) What will the Celebration store have to offer? Will the latest issue of “Star Wars Insider” have an exclusive cover? When will the remainder if the pins be revealed? Two weeks to go and lots of ground to cover still.

After I sent in last week's piece about the panels I was interested in, my illustrious editor-in-chief brought another one to my attention, and that is “Elite Character Focus Collecting” on Sat, Apr 18th from 6:00-7:00 on the Collectors stage, with none other than Bill Cable as one of the speakers! Even though the premiere of “Rebels” season II is at that time, I'm going to forgo that to show support for the boss, and I don't mean Springsteen. I can catch the premiere anytime (once it's available on DVD), but an hour with Mr. Cable is something not to be missed. So Bill, I may not be your biggest fan (I'm sure your family takes that honor), but I'm betting I'll be the LOUDEST!!! So bring it on baby! Showin' some support (and suckage) for CC.com!! Hope 2CU (no, that's not a new droid to be featured in Episode VII) all there!

HOT CROSS BUNNY

This year Easter took me by surprise. Not only because the year has absolutely zoomed by and we’re almost in April before I knew it, but I found an Easter-themed beer by complete accident, which leads me to this unexpected review.

Wychwood Brewery, which has made many, many brews ...
