Wrapping up my coverage of the inaugural HasCon convention, I wanted to share a few pieces of advice to make HasCon 2018 even better. I had a lot of fun at HasCon (thanks again for the Press badge!), but there is definitely room for improvement!

1) Handle the autographs better. Having ...

Pimpin' my wares on eBay!

A few weeks back I revealed that I'd picked up a nice collection of Vintage Star Wars figures from a friend of a friend. I posted them for sale up on Facebook and sold a few of them. After that avenue was exhausted, I threw the rest up on eBay. So now you can bid and maybe score one for less than I was originally asking (or maybe pay WAY MORE, ideally). All feature authentic Vintage weapons, and I do combine shipping. Enjoy!

Pimpin' my wares on Facebook (and CC.com)!

So the other half of that collection I picked up consisted of vehicles and playsets. I posted them Monday on Facebook, and am sharing the remaining items here with photos! Great deals to be had!

CAESAR AUGUSTS

I had a big, huge, rambling article written and prepared called “Why Disney is Killing Star Wars for Me – Rogue One, etc.” It had loads of bullet points, hyperlinks, and a couple of videos embedded in it. I spent nearly a year writing it and tweaking it, pouring ...

The Boba Fett Fan Club just launched a series of Boba Fett video shorts starring a suited-up Mark Austin (also known as Boba Fett in A New Hope: Special Edition).

I might have lent some of my wordsmithing to this project.

HasCon Celebrity Guest - STAN LEE!!

So, one of the two reasons I decided to trek all the way to Rhode Island (besides the free Press Badge - Thank you HasCon!!) was the chance to see, in-person, a living legend. Stan the-effin-Man Lee! He does his share of conventions, but it seems never the ones I go to. And when I saw this golden opportunity to attend his panel, I was excited to seize it!

The panel was quite funny. He's a stunningly witty guy. He shared some details of his early writing process (enjoy the video), talked about what it's like now that Marvel dominates popular culture, and talked glowingly about his collaborators with whom he created the Marvel Universe. It was a wonderful experience, and I'm glad HasCon brought him in.

HasCon Photo Dump 3 - Marvel Legends Brand Experience

by Bill Cable

I don't personally collect Marvel Legends, but I like them a lot. I mean, the sculps by-and-large are fantastic. And I've always been a big Marvel fan, so seeing a nice figure of a character I like is enjoyable. The real stand-out of the figures they had on display was Jessica Jones from the Netflix series. The likeness was dead-on perfect. Almost erie. Same thing with the Netflix Punisher. Eric Franks of ImperialHolocron.com mentioned something about a new method they're using for faces, so I wonder if that's what was going on here. Whatever it was - keep it up Hasbro!

Welcome back J.J. Abrams!

by Darth Danno

So the director of Episode VII is returning to direct Episode IX. The "I will finish…what I’ve started" memes are already flooding the internet. I believe there’s no need for the fans to have LOST all hope feeling the franchise has taken a STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. Of course we know that Episode IX is just an ALIAS for the real title, but we won’t get that for quite some time yet. Who knows what celebrities will be cast in the upcoming epic, elevating their careers to where they may take a STAR TREK to greatness. I hope all of the main cast will be returning, which would include Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendolyn Christie, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, and Oscar Isaac, where Marvel had their Sinister 6, Star Wars now has their SUPER 8. Considering that Abrams has quite a distinguished track record, this project is quite doable under his guidance, and we needn’t look at this third part of the trilogy as MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III, and instead can dissect this and find an ANATOMY OF HOPE.

We have two more SW films to be released before this one, so let’s not get too excited about it just yet. Plus, the release date was pushed back from May to December 2019, so at least that holiday season will be something to look forward to, as opposed to next year, unless something huge is done to promote the release of The Han Solo movie on DVD/Blu-ray.
