Name: Bill Cable
C-3PO stuff. Vintage MOC. Modern loose.
I'm Bill Cable. This is my site. I started "collecting" Star Wars back in 1978. My first figure was Greedo, and I still remember pulling him off the card in the back of my dad's station wagon (my brother got Walrusman). I collected many of the figures up until the POTF figures came out in '85. The last figure I bought was Han Carbonite (my brother got Luke Stormtrooper). I remember being thrilled that a new "Power of the Force" movie was coming out... Later, I saw the Droids and Ewoks figures on the pegs, but they really didn't interest me at all.
I took off about 10 years from collecting, and sold off my entire collection at flea markets. Then I started buying POTF2 back in 1995. I was active on-line... contributing regularly to RASSC (and both RASSCM and RASSCV after the spilt). When I graduated from UVA in 1997 and moved to Ohio, I tried to start an Ohio SW Collecting Club... only to find out one already existed!! I joined... and within the first couple months designed the first OSWCC T-shirt. One of the guys was so impressed by the art I did for the rejected idea that he bought it. And he talked me into drawing more. And selling them. The idea took off, and I ended up creating an on-line gallery at www.SWDrawings.com. That lasted until 2001, when I found art alone not to be enough to sustain me... I longed for comedy!! And thus this site was born. So now I can do my art, do my comedy schtick and CRUSH AND HUMILIATE ALL THOSE WHO WOULD OPPOSE ME!!!!!
Name: Nigel “Beedo Sookcool” Willis
Mainly the “realistic” 3¾”-scale Star Wars toys, although he has been known to delve into some Clone Wars pieces, Jurassic Park (and any other cool dinosaur-related items), Aliens, Predator, Doctor Who, 25th Anniversary G. I. Joe, Masters of the Universe (Vintage to Classics), and the cooler of the modern TransFormers. Also, anything interesting, novel, or eye-catching is game for this magpie-like collector. He is attracted by bright colours and shiny objects. And books and music. And women (but they’re slightly more difficult and much more expensive to collect). Mostly, these days, he just collects dust.
- Obnoxious, aggressive jerks (In other words, about 23% - 42% of the population of Earth)
- Bigots (see Item 1)
- Banks (see Item 1)
Born in England, lived in Malaysia for a year, then lived in Ohio for 24 years, and back in England as of May 2000, Beedo’s travels and life experience have given him a weird hybrid Midwestern accent with a tinge of Devonian, leading everyone meeting him for the first time to think he’s Canadian. His first Star Wars figure was Greedo, which explains a lot about his online persona. Once described — by a friend, mind you — as “the last great source of evil in the Universe,” the only things preventing him from conquering the world and bringing humanity under his vindictive iron fist are his outright laziness and inability to get along with the kind of aggressive, testosterone-drunk thugs you need to build an army of appreciable size. Also, for making his homeland even more of a laughing-stock than it already was by getting themselves “Official Religion” status in the 2001 Census, he intends to wipe out the Jedi. All of them. Preferably all at once with bureaucracy and red tape, because going around killing them one at a time or in small groups would severely cut into his drinking time.

I can't handle the commitment.
Tresob Yr has no natural enemies in the wild.
"Love is diving head first into a cluttered action figure bin and finding a rare figure for $2.99."
A self-avowed bottom feeder in the collecting community, Tresob Yr will pretty much buy any action figure if the price is right, whether it's a half-priced AOTC peg-warmer or an "80s mixed lot" with a low starting bid. He has been producing action figure photo-comics since spring of 2002 when he launched the Star Wars Action Figure Theatre's production of Hamlet and the Cobra Commander Coffeehouse, among other projects.
He joined the Creature Cantina team in the fall of 2004 where he continues to make modest contributions. At maximum speed, he can now script, shoot, layout, and edit a five-panel comic page in under forty-five minutes. His forearm-mounted null-ray cannons can stun an undergraduate for up to an hour. He is also a dues paying member of the DCSWCC (http://www.dcswcc.com ). Among his known weaknesses are a short attention span, insufficient funding, and an unhealthy need for continual positive reinforcement.

Name: Dan "Darth Danno" Dudych
Anything related to Indiana Jones, all SW bounty hunters, General Grievous, Slave Bikini Leia, Dexter Jettster, the Mos Eisley Cantina, and Darth Maul. I also collect original autographs (preferably personalized to me) from any SW cast member I manage to track down.
A finite bank account
I've been a Star Wars fanatic since my mom finally let me see the movie in 1978. I have a Dark Side Anakin costume (minus the boots) and a full custom made Tusken Raider outfit. Have all the original figures, just not in their original packaging. I haven't run out of collectibles to buy, but am currently running out of space in my house to store it all.
The only thing larger than my Star Wars collection is the number of Playboy Playmate autographs and Playboy memorabilia I have. I also am a big CSI fan and love horror films, especially "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Saw." Aside from collecting, my other hobby is acting in local plays, most notably "Arsenic and Old Lace," a show I've had 5 roles in 7 separate productions. My favorite role is Jonathan Brewster, the evil brother originally played by Boris Karloff. During one of the shows, one of the audience came up to me after the play and said (and I quote) "I saw the original production with Karloff in 1942, you were almost as good."
CreatureCantina.com and Bill Cable have given me the opportunity to pursue one of my longtime dreams, to write about Star Wars. Together, we can keep the galaxy far, far away alive.
