Disney ripping off the past

So an interesting new thing has popped up in my eBay searches. Of course... it's C-3PO!

What we have here is a new Disney ceramic C-3PO "money box" (because apparently the term "bank" has too many negative connotations). Paging through eBay I can't say for sure ...

The 12 Days of a Non-Star Wars Christmas

With Solo coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray next week, it got me thinking as to what are Star Wars fans going to do this holiday season with no new film in the theaters to watch and re-watch over and over and over and... Here are some suggestions:

  1. Re-release Solo in the theaters and see how it does if it had been released when all the other new films had come out.
  2. Do a 10 movie marathon.
  3. Do an 11 movie marathon and include The Clone Wars animated film.
  4. Do a 13 movie marathon and include the two Ewok made for T.V. films.
  5. Do a 14 movie marathon and include the Star Wars holiday special.
  6. Boycott the holidays entirely and put aside the money you would have spent on all the movie tickets, swag, etc... to save for all the stuff you're just going to HAVE to buy from Regal Robot.
  7. Save up for Star Wars Celebration in April.
  8. Put yourself in a fruitcake-induced coma. Coming out only on Wednesdays to see what new tidbits of information CC.com has to offer.
  9. Write letters to Santa, stating: All l want for Christmas is Solo 2 to get the green light from Lucasfilm/Disney.
  10. Start planning your yearly vacation to attend the opening of Star Wars Land at either Disney Land or Disney World in 2019.
  11. Any combination of the above.
  12. Spend the time with friends and fam... Ahhhh, who does that anymore! Spend the time watching your fave Star Wars films in the comfort of your own home. It's winter for crying out loud! It's cold, dark, the roads are slippery, and no matter how good you are, Daisy Ridley will not be sitting under your tree come Christmas morning.

P.S. A big Happy Birthday to yours truly as this coming Sunday, the 23rd I'll be turning the big 5-0!

Setting the record straight

I've heard from multiple persons online that Solo lost money due to its budget being $500 million. I have checked numerous online sources and cannot find that figure anywhere. Below are some of the figures I found, and their sources:

  • Google – at least $250 million
  • Screenrant – over $250 million
  • Variety – ...

Over the weekend I was presented with a singular opportunity - an invitation to visit Tom Spina Designs, the studio where Mr. Spina (rhymes with Cantina) does his restoration work. It was a very private, hush-hush affair... so hush-hush that I can't even tell you about the stuff I saw! ...

So yeah... Facebook.

Last week an image popped up on my news feed from the Star Wars Fans group. I joined that group so I could promote the PSWCS.org charity medallions to a wider audience. Otherwise I barely pay attention to it. But this image was an analysis of ...

Star Wars does a monster movie, and other ramblings

by Darth Danno
on 2018-08-22, 06:41:50

With the success of films featuring prehistoric sharks, giant apes, flying wolves, alligators the size of semi trailers, etc… it makes me wonder what would happen if down-the-line, a Star Wars stand-alone film had one of its big beasties as the main character. Now I know the Clone Wars had a three story arc on the Zillo beast, but my first thought would be one involving the Gorog, but you wouldn't want to call it ”The Gor” because people would get it confused with GORE and think it's too violent! Just what the fanbase needs, more fuel for the hate mongers and SJW's (Social Justice Warriors, in case you didn't know) to rant and blog about ad nauseam. Frankenstein had fire, the werewolf had silver, vampires have sunlight, holy water, & wooden stakes, and Star Wars has Social Media. It's nice to see Kelly Marie Tran has spoken out about the harassment that caused her to leave social media. I hope she comes to SWC next Apr so she can see and feel all the love the REAL SW fans have for her. I hope Daisy Ridley comes as well, but more so she can see and feel all the love one SW fan in particular has for her. So before my fantasies get the best of my writings, I'm going to stop here and go take a very long, very lonely, and VERY cold shower..

P.S. It's hard to believe that tomorrow (Thu) marks the two year anniversary of my Father's passing. Rest in peace Dad, I love you, miss you, and not a day goes by I don't think of you.
