Action Figures & Their Beers - Hittin' the hay

I’ve been complaining a lot recently that over-hopped IPAs seem to be dominating the market and that there aren’t enough malt-heavy brewskis out there. Well, every so often, like today, I enjoy being proven wrong.

Coming from an English county where farming has traditionally been one of the top three ...

1) Handle the autographs better. Having ...

Pimpin' my wares on eBay!

A few weeks back I revealed that I'd picked up a nice collection of Vintage Star Wars figures from a friend of a friend. I posted them for sale up on Facebook and sold a few of them. After that avenue was exhausted, I threw the rest up on eBay. So now you can bid and maybe score one for less than I was originally asking (or maybe pay WAY MORE, ideally). All feature authentic Vintage weapons, and I do combine shipping. Enjoy!

Action Figures & Their Beers - Hail, Cæsar!

I had a big, huge, rambling article written and prepared called “Why Disney is Killing Star Wars for Me – Rogue One, etc.” It had loads of bullet points, hyperlinks, and a couple of videos embedded in it. I spent nearly a year writing it and tweaking it, pouring ...

The Boba Fett Fan Club just launched a series of Boba Fett video shorts starring a suited-up Mark Austin (also known as Boba Fett in A New Hope: Special Edition).

I might have lent some of my wordsmithing to this project.

HasCon Celebrity Guest - STAN LEE!!

So, one of the two reasons I decided to trek all the way to Rhode Island (besides the free Press Badge - Thank you HasCon!!) was the chance to see, in-person, a living legend. Stan the-effin-Man Lee! He does his share of conventions, but it seems never the ones I go to. And when I saw this golden opportunity to attend his panel, I was excited to seize it!

The panel was quite funny. He's a stunningly witty guy. He shared some details of his early writing process (enjoy the video), talked about what it's like now that Marvel dominates popular culture, and talked glowingly about his collaborators with whom he created the Marvel Universe. It was a wonderful experience, and I'm glad HasCon brought him in. Image Image Image Image Image

HasCon Photo Dump 3 - Marvel Legends Brand Experience

by Bill Cable
on 2017-09-14, 07:57:34

I don't personally collect Marvel Legends, but I like them a lot. I mean, the sculps by-and-large are fantastic. And I've always been a big Marvel fan, so seeing a nice figure of a character I like is enjoyable. The real stand-out of the figures they had on display was Jessica Jones from the Netflix series. The likeness was dead-on perfect. Almost erie. Same thing with the Netflix Punisher. Eric Franks of mentioned something about a new method they're using for faces, so I wonder if that's what was going on here. Whatever it was - keep it up Hasbro!
