As Thanksgiving is fast approaching, I feel it necessary to show my appreciation for all that I have received, and continue to receive over the past year. All in all, it has really been a good year, and I have much to be thankful for.

First off, I'm thankful I was ...

It's that time of year when we Americans reflect upon the multitude of blessing bestowed upon us. And I know the proper thing is to focus on family, good friends, and health, and that it's impolitic to center on material things... but what fun is that?? I wanna brag about ...

The new "Battlefront" game came out on Tuesday, but the store I pre-ordered it from had a late night launch event the night before, so I attended that. It was nice that they based everything off East Coast time, so when the clock hit 11:01 here, we could get our ...

Droids Walrusman - Cardbacks finished!!

Over the weekend I finished the cardbacks for my Droids Walrusman customs: Image

I also repainted the tusks. MUCH better. They dried almost immediately when I prepped the surfaces with primer.

What this means is all I need to do is mount the bubbles and the run is done. So I expect I'll have these up for sale next Wednesday! I'll post the ordering details next Tuesday and share them on Facebook. So keep an eye out!!

Almost there… almost there!!

I’m sure many of you heard about, if not took part in, the Celebration Anaheim pin trading program. There were a total of 45 pins to be had. 10 total from the sets that could be pre-ordered (actually 11 considering they threw in an additional pin as it took them so long to get the sets mailed out.) 12 from the three sets available in the Celebration store. 8 through the blind boxes available there as well. 2 if you spent certain amounts at said store, some were also available from various dealers on the floor (Kotobukiya, ThinkGeek, Anovos, etc…) and the rest available only through trading. Now, having 44 out of the 45, I would have thought that the ones that you could get only through trading would be the hardest to acquire, but that has turned out to not be the case, as the one pin I am still needing was one of the 8 from the blind boxes, and that pin is IG-88.

I was down to 5, but constantly checking on eBay allowed me to get four of them, however I’ve never seen IG-88 available to be sold as a single pin. Sure, I could get him if I wanted to buy the complete set, or even the set of 8, but I’m not spending $300-$600.00 for one pin. I still continue to scour the web, but if anyone out there might have a lead on where to acquire him, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and MTFBWY!!!

I was at work yesterday when I got an IM from my wife: "You got one of those #chooselightside boxes." I immediately quit my job and ran home to open it.

Droids Walrusman - painting tusks

by Bill Cable
on 2015-11-04, 07:07:29

Last week I noticed that the tusks on all of my Walrusman figures had varying degrees of paint loss - most of it pretty bad. I conducted a poll on Facebook whether I should paint them or not, and the consensus was strongly in favor of painting them. So I did. And they look much better! Image

But unfortunately, I think I gotta do it all over again. A week after painting them, they're still tacky. And that means they'll likely smudge up the insides of the bubbles if I use them as-is. I'll need to repaint the things, using primer first. Kind of a pain, but I'm a stickler for quality.

On the card front, the backs of all the cardbacks are mounted. Now I just need to affix the fronts. That's the more challenging of the two tasks, but still, I'm making good progress. is not affiliated with Lucasfilm Ltd. or any of its licensees... damn them to hell. Can't they see a golden opportunity when they see it? Buy us, you fools! You already own our souls and all our money... buy US!!!
