One nice thing about today was that all the autographs I was getting were going to be on my "Solo" poster, so I didn't need to bring anything else with me. Another plus was that it being Saturday, there was no rush-hour traffic to deal with, plus we ...

Star Wars Celebration Chicago may be in the books, but there’s still plenty to celebrate. Thanks to everyone stopping by the PSWCS booth at Celebration to help our charities, The ARC of Pennsylvania and Wolf Sanctuary of PA, we raised over $10,350! Image

But we're not done! The remaining medallions, Luke Skywalker for The ARC of Pennsylvania and Commander Wolffe for the Wolf Sanctuary of PA, are now available online.

We have a limited number of 2-packs, one of each medallion, for the special price of $16.99 shipped in the US. You can also buy the medallions separately for $12.50 each. Additional shipping for multiple medallions and for international orders.

Again, we would like to thank everyone who purchased medallions during Celebration Chicago and let you know that the money raised will be going to help out two worthy charities in Pennsylvania.

The Luke medallion is nearly sold out and Wolffe is low on stock, so if you'd like to help out either, or both, charities, place your order today.

Droids Custom Gonk: Penciled!

So last week I promised I was going to look for the dopest lamp I could to enhance my Droids Gonk. After a bit of web searching, I hit pay dirt!

From Chancellor Palpatine's office, I present these most dope lamps on the visitor couches: Image

Now, I kinda wish they were free-standing rather than attached to couches. But the free-standing lamps I found were solid silver and only lit upwards, and that would prevent me from really playing with the lighting on the Gonk. So I made due.

Though with the piece penciled out, I do like that the couch adds some architecture to the layout. Image

What I really excited about here is the color scheme I have to work with! The deep reds of the walls and carpet are gonna be stunning, and contrast nicely with the navy-blue Gonk. But first I gotta ink the thing!

Day 2 of SWC, but today they opened at 10:00, so we had to get up early again, get breakfast, then head downtown with all the morning rush hour traffic to get to the convention center in time. Fortunately we left early enough that we were able to get downtown ...

With Celebration Chicago over and Celebration Anaheim prep not really yet begun, it's time for me to get back into the groove with another Droids Custom. This time out, it's the beloved Power Droid.

Power Droids was one of my childhood favorites. Maybe THE favorite. I just loved the way his ...

Another is one with the Force

We interrupt our regularly scheduled report of Star Wars Celebration Chicago to talk about the passing of Peter Mayhew. I met him at the same con I met Kenny Baker at, back in 2005, I believe. He was very nice and pleasant, and I enjoyed the brief time I got to spend with him at his table. I got this pic taken back at Celebration in 2017 and was very glad I did. It's nice to see the outpouring of love and support he and his family are getting, both online and at the convention he was supposed to attend last weekend. He’s home with Carrie and Kenny now, but the impact he made with fans will continue for generations to come. Rest easy, Mr. Mayhew. May the Force be with you always.

Finally! A Celebration in my home town!! No need to book flights or hotel rooms this time, but considering we were going to be getting home so late and up so early each day, I opted to crash on Barry's parents' couch for the duration of the con.

Got to his ...

A Cursory Tour of the Khetanna

Y'know, for a vehicle / playset that has only one (semi)working action feature (I'm expecting a replacement trap door in the mail soon, courtesy of Hasbro's Customer Service Department), and with only a handful of figures out of my vast collection actually with me, I'm still finding new ways of having fun with the Khetanna! So here's a photocomic:

Not one to normally leave the palace, Beedo takes a tour of Jabba’s newly-renovated sail barge, the Khetanna, during its shakedown cruise around the Dune Sea . . . . Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

Star Wars Figures Worst to First - EWOKS!

by Bill Cable

So my brother posted this video while I was in Chicago celebration my butt off. It is (most likely) the final video in our Worst to First Countdown series! And being all about the cartoon Ewoks... well we could have called the thing Worst to Next-to-Worst because there is really no first place medal to give among this dreck. Thank goodness easy targets make for good humor!

So what to do next? My brother has been brainstorming. He was thinking maybe creatures or vehicles. But I don't have any of the creatures or vehicles. What other options are there? Can't do modern because I barely own any modern these days. Just move on? I'm at a loss... 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!!! This site uses Google Analytics.
