Stylized

In this comic, a Darth Vader action figure offers more advice to a Kylo Ren action figure on how to be evil.

Plus, I am getting so much use out of this red corridor cardboard insert...it's practically a character in itself. Remember when I used to photoshop characters onto backgrounds? That seems such a crude and barbaric technique now.

Wacky new Mexican bootlegs - The Sequel!

Last month I posted a story about a collection of Mexican Star Wars bootlegs I picked up off eBay. They were little unarticulated rubber things cast from Hasbro's Playskool Heroes line. Well, that purchase gave me the taste for these interesting little suckers, and I decided to snag another lot of them.

There were nine total, and these ones are produced quite a bit differently. They're cast in hard plastic and vac-metalized in glorious crazy colors.

The flashing on these ones is much more pronounced, especially evident on the lighstabers.

This lot consisted of six total characters: C-3PO x 3, Luke Skywalker Bespin x 2, Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, Han Solo and Chewbacca. Here are photos of them by color. I kinda love how the camera compensated for the purple and blue by supersaturating the backgrounds.

In addition to these characters, I've also seen Yoda and R2-D2. But those lots didn't have any 3POs in them, so they didn't really fit in with my collecting goals. I'm thinking I'm going to bring my non-3PO bootlegs to Celebration London as trade bait. So keep an eye out for me!



Spaceballs... er.. CreatureCantina.com: THE BAG!

A couple short weeks ago, I received a notice from my good friend Tony Damata that he was starting a new venture - custom embroidered messenger bags. Basically - you have a logo, 3 or 4 colors, and he can embroider it on a bag. And I figured what would be better than a CreatureCantina.com SUCKS messenger bag?

CreatureCantina.com Image

How awesome is that? The bag is great quality, and the embroidery is fantastic.

And the best part? The thing only costs $20! That's right - for a mere $20 you can get pretty much anything you'd like stitched on a messenger bag, and then you'll be stylin' at the cons.

If you're interested, you can contact Tony at adamata@restrainingbolt.com. If you order TODAY (June 15th), you'll have it in time for Celebration Europe! How sweet would that be??

Here it is folks. As I had said awhile back, I’m sick and tired of people who think they’re major fans of something, but when it comes down to it…they’re really not. So below is my list of how actual and true fandom is (or should be) ranked. Check it ...

Things are going according to schedule for my next Droids custom - Greedo. I finished the art, and printed the cards. Here's my finished artwork:

Then last night I painted the last of the Creatures coins I'll be using for this one, so I have everything ready now for assembly. That'll probably take a couple weeks, so we're likely looking at accepting orders on June 15th.

So...no actual Star Wars figures in this comic, but it's all Disney, now, right? So that still counts?

PSWCS.org and the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society are joining forces with Pets for U.S. Vets, a program of the Washington Area Humane Society in Washington, PA. Pets for U.S. Vets places dogs and cats with local veterans, free of charge. All animals are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.

Pets for U.S. Vets was started by Suzi Smith in 2010 and she has worked tirelessly since then to secure funding to cover the costs of the free adoptions. Now in its sixth year, the program is averaging 50 adoptions per year to veterans.

CreatureCantina.com Image

To raise funds for Pets for U.S. Vets, PSWCS.org will be selling a limited run of 1,000 medallions featuring C-3PO from Star Wars™: The Force Awakens. This will be the sixth medallion and charity that PSWCS.org has partnered with.

Each medallion has been cast in gold toned metal and features C-3PO on the front along with the date and name of the charity, Pets for U.S. Vets. The back will have the PSWCS logo.

The medallions will be sold online for $12.50 each, including shipping. The medallions are fully approved by Lucasfilm and will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and receipt as they are tax deductible.

The medallions will go on sale on May 30, 2016 on the web at http://www.pswcs.com/charity.cfm.
