The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS) and No Warrior without Help have teamed up to offer their remaining BB-8 charity medallions for Valentines Day. Their coins originally debuted at Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando, FL and are now exclusively available online. Each medallion is $15 shipped in the US (international shipping available) and all proceeds benefit No Warrior without Help.

No Warrior without Help, based in Central Pennsylvania, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides direct financial support to assist wounded veterans as well as train service dogs.

The limited edition medallion is fully approved by Lucasfilm and has an edition size of 1000 pieces. Each medallion features the likeness of BB-8 on the front, along with the date and the name of the charity, No Warrior without Help. The back features the PSWCS logo.

What’s everyone getting so excited about???

For all of those who have seen "The Last Jedi", many are so incensed by what happens to Luke Skywalker at the end of the movie. Hopefully by now everyone has seen the film or at least knows what happens, so I'm going to be discussing it, and the fact ...

Earlier this week, I came across a comic strip on social media, the author of which I'll bet thought was quite astute...

"The Last Jedi" opening weekend (Sun)

Now I attended "Secrets of the Empire" the second day it was open, so my review/report is based on that. Since then, the facility's appearance, both outside and in, MAY have changed from what I've reported here.

I wanted to get up and go to Magic Kingdom and see what they ...

The Last Jedi would like to thank the Academy

The Oscar nominations are out, and our lightsaber-wielding buddies have a lot to be happy about! Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi received four nominations, most in the expected sound and visual effects categories. No big surprises - no nomination for Daisy Ridley for Best Actress or John Boyega for Best Actor. Nothing at all for Kylo Ren's glistening pecs... But still a great accomplishment!

Probably the most exciting nomination was to John Williams for Best Original Score. That's his 51st nomination! He's a living legend. And he'll be back again to score Episode IX.

I'd like to congratulate Matt Wood in particular for his nomination for Best Sound Editing. I've met Matt, the voice of General Grievous, at a bunch of different conventions over the years. Here's hoping this is the year he brings home Oscar gold!



The 3rd Annual Dannos!

The Academy Awards nominations have been announced, "The Last Jedi" did get 4 nominations, but considering "The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One" received two nominations apiece in their respective years and won "0", I'm keeping my expectations low for any wins for "TLJ". So here are MY Choices for the ...

Got up somewhat early as I wanted to hit Disney's Animal Kingdom having never been there before. So I went down for breakfast, then jumped on the bus, and was off. I always wanted to ride "Expedition Everest" and today was my chance! I had the fastpass for it that ...

CreatureCantina is going to TOY FAIR 2018!!!

by Bill Cable - Executive Editor
on 2018-01-17, 08:15:19

Good news everyone! I'm headed back to the Big Apple - the City that Never Sleeps - in one month to cover all the new Star Wars toys and collectibles at Toy Fair 2018! I'll be headed there with my trusty photographer Joe Kersavage, and plan to visit every booth that has any Star Wars stuff at all over the course of three days. We'll be checking out LEGO, Mattel, Funko, Kotobukiya, JAKKS Pacific, ANOVOS, Metal Earth, and two dozen other companies that I've mapped out so far! It's gonna be epic!

There seems to be a toymaker missing from that list... can't seem to place a finger on it... perhaps we'll still get an invitation though. If they want press coverage or whatever...

I'll be posting live on Instagram, so be sure to follow @billcable to see the photos first! And then check back on CreatureCantina.com over the following weeks to see our extensive coverage.
