It has...begun! Monday night I stopped off at a local strip mall to pick up a pizza for dinner and decided to peruse the isles of the local Hallmark store that was there as well. The Halloween merch has started hitting the shelves and as I turned down one of ...

Saw they're coming out with a new Millennium Falcon that will be an exclusive to Wal Mart. I know we had a huge one that was available everywhere some years back, then there was one that was exclusive to Toys “R” Us, complete w/retro packaging. Now is this one simply ...

The wait is almost over

So - no new updates on the Droids customs this week. I'm still waiting for the coins to come in. Hopefully soon.

I have other news to share, though! At long last, we're going to be getting some significant news C-3PO product! Over the last week TWO new major C-3PO items have been teased! First off, the Hasbro 6" Black series will finally get legit when they release a Black Series C-3PO. In a line full of peg-warmers and one or two impossible-to-find short-packs, this awesome figure is a welcome addition. Hopefully having C-3PO on board with right this ship!

We've also just learned that Sideshow will be releasing a 1/6th scale C-3PO figure. Anybody going to SDCC who'd like to send me some photos - much appreciated. With this figure, I can't imagine how they'll match the Tamashii Nations Perfect Model Chogokin C-3PO. I mean - it's hard to top perfect! But I guess they're gonna try. I never picked up their RAH 3PO because the face was just... off. Maybe this new Sideshow figure will redeem them.



Droids Custom Zuckuss - Almost there...

So a couple weeks ago I was on vacation. I spent some of the down time assembling some custom-carded Droids Zuckusses, following the first 37 steps of my 43-step assembly guide. They're almost ready to go... just waiting for my batch of resin coins to paint and mount. And to clip the corners.

Where have all the SW signers gone?

by Darth Danno
on 2014-07-09, 07:43:21

With WizardWorld Chicago fast approaching next month, their guest list so far includes celebrities from Professional Wrestling, “Dr. Who”, “Star Trek”, “Walking Dead”, various “X-Men” movies, “Arrow”, “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Sleepy Hollow”, “Angel”, “Smallville”, “Power Rangers”, “the Incredible Hulk”, “Mystery Science Theater 3000”, Stan Lee, Bruce Campbell, John Carpenter, Elvira, Peter Criss, Ted Raimi, Cheryl Tiegs, & Sara Underwood, yet not one person from Star Wars? I mean, C2E2 at least had Ashley Eckstein. Is everyone holding out for Celebration Anaheim? WTF???? (For those of you not in the know, that stands for What the Force) Are all the “Clone Wars” actors busy working on SW “Rebels”? Is everyone that is still alive from Episodes I-VI working on Episode VII? Not like I don't already have enough autographs to get at the show as it is (Sara Underwood, Erica Durance, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, John Carpenter, Danai Gurira, James Marsters, and Katie Cassidy) I would never turn down a chance to get a signature from someone (that I didn't already have, of course.) who had anything to do with any of the SW films, T.V. Shows, video games, etc... I know I'll be there, but I'd probably have to pay people to take my autograph and that kind of defeats the purpose. I hear they're expecting the 501st to pay for a table, even though they're a nonprofit organization. So they may not even attend this year. I guess this is what Obi-Wan meant by the “dark times”.

They got it all wrong!!

So Harrison Ford broke his ankle and will be out for 8 weeks. I hope he's not feeling de”feet”ed over this. Why they just didn't stick him in a bacta tank is beyond me. Or the way that cybernetics has advanced since 2005, I mean, look at Anakin Skywalker, he lost an arm in Episode II, the other arm and both legs in Episode III, and was up and around before the end of both films. Luke lost a hand in Episode V and was well enough to see Lando and Chewie off. Cliegg Lars lost a leg, but still managed to work his moisture farm, albeit with the aid if his son and his son's girlfriend (and Shmi until the Sand People kidnapped her). Darth Maul was cut in half, fell down a shaft and came back to fight again (Okay, okay, there was at least a ten year span between the Battle of Naboo and he re-appearance on Lotho Minor, but that was due to Savage taking that long to find him, and not recovery time from his injuries.) Both Ponda Baba and the Wampa lost arms and...scratch that, they didn't fare too well. If the “makers” would just think to use some of the technology they've created in a modern day instance, Mr. Solo would already be back repairing the Falcon. Couldn't Luke or Leia's Force powers be used in healing? I mean c'mon people, we have plenty of options, but ever since the mouse got in the house and became George's “other” spouse, everyone is acting goofy!

Makin' Faces

Hey, remember that time I made a "Create-a-Cantina" flash toy for the site?

Well, I cannibalized that file and turned it into a Super Awesome Robot Face Maker for people who want to make custom space robot faces for the Lego or kreon minifigs.

Click "here" on the Download Attachments page.

It's still very much a work-in-progress, but it is already a fully-operational-facial-station.
