Neo-T's CC.com Debut

It's a major snow day for the Tribe Tresob. My work is closed. Mrs. T's work is closed. And Neo-T's work is closed. And it's a Wednesday...the old CC.com update day! So, I figured how better to spend time with my family than making an action figure photo comic.

Behold "Starro Wars," a DC-Star Wars crossover event written and directed by Neo-T, 4.5 years old. It may well be the best comic I've posted to the site ever.

I have no idea how he knows about Starro, either. I think he's learning his pop culture on the streets. I thought I taught him better than that.



Droids Custom Squidhead: SOLD OUT!!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-02-20, 06:59:02

And now you can order Squidhead (probably... unless it says they're sold out below)!

CreatureCantina.com Image

Produced in a limited run of 15 pieces, each custom Droids-style MOC figure features an authentic Squidhead action figure and weapon, a specially designed vacuformed bubble, and a painted plastic resin coin cast from the Vintage POTF Sail Skiff coin

CreatureCantina.com Image

The front features my own original artwork. Uncle Gundy's photo and bio have been replaced on the back with Squidhead's. The bubble is attached with double-sided permanent scrapbooking tape (which occasionally lifts a little, so you might need to put a book on it to reseal it).

To order, you gotta get up a little earlier in the morning. My apologies, but they've sold out.

Good luck! And thanks for your patronage!

So, Steve's been doing yeoman's work covering Toy Fair 2019 in NYC. He's posted a bunch of photos on the CreatureCantina Facebook page. Rather than re-upload all those photos to CreatureCantina (redundant work), here's a list of his posts:

While CreatureCantina's Hasbro invitation was apparently somehow lost in the mail, that didn't stop us from sneaking in a spy to get us some awesome photos of their newest reveals! Many Bothans died to bring us this information...

Droids Custom Squidhead: A productive week!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-02-13, 06:55:10

So I got busy over the last week, and ended up being very successful in my endeavors! It started Thursday, when I took advantage of the wonderful 60+ degree weather and painted up my coins...

It was also nice and sunny, which is exactly what I ...

The 3rd Annual Dannos!

Yet again I bring you MY Choices for the best of 2018, and not just the artsy-fartsy crap the Oscars always dote on. Again, I’m not giving awards in all the categories the Academy does, just those I deem most important. The winners will be announced after the Oscars. Rather ...

The best of 2018, then and now

by Darth Danno
on 2019-02-13, 06:46:45

This was the list I posted way back on Jan 8th as to what I thought the 10 best films were going to be in 2018:

  1. Halloween
  2. Black Panther
  3. Pacific Rim: Uprising
  4. Winchester
  5. Venom
  6. Ant Man & the Wasp
  7. Avengers: Infinity War
  8. The Meg
  9. Deadpool 2
  10. Solo: A Star Wars Story

Now that 2018 is over, this is the “OFFICIAL” list of the 10 best films of the year (in my humble opinion):

  1. Avengers: Infinity War
  2. The Meg
  3. The Predator
  4. The Nun
  5. Venom
  6. Halloween
  7. Peter Rabbit
  8. Ant Man & the Wasp
  9. Deadpool 2
  10. Solo: A Star Wars Story

As in past years, some films moved up, others moved down, some surprises made the list, and others dropped off the list completely. Now that’s not to say I didn’t like certain films, it’s just that there were ten other films I thought were better. I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings, but I feel that a certain film opening in December will be taking the #1 spot yet again.



Droids Custom Squidhead: Ready to print!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-02-06, 08:09:19

I'd like to start by pointing out that you guys are a bunch of fake likers! In my story last week I purported to reveal the near-final colors of my Squidhead. But when you clicked on the thumbnail it revealed a ridiculous image hilariously obscured by very obtrusive "watermarks." It was a fantastic joke that nobody seemed to notice, which suggests nobody actually clicked on the link to check out the art. Why do I even bother??

So for this week's update that you won't actually click on and read, I'm happy to share that the card art is print-ready. I played around with the color saturation quite a bit. Here's my first pass:

CreatureCantina.com Image

After taking that one in a bit, I decided to take down the color saturation in the art, and to shift the bubble background to more of a red-orange than pure orange. I also switched the nameplate to white text.

CreatureCantina.com Image

I think I'm happy with it now. Happy enough at least. I'm never truly happy with everything. I've already begun work on the back, and I hope to paint the coins tomorrow (61 degrees!!). Who knows - I might have this thing done before the end of February!
