So - some big news on the Golden Grail front in the last couple weeks! Shortly after the second Golden Grail auction ended, I was contacted via PM by one Jeff Echtenkamp, who was very upset that his debut cardback run was ruined, and who took the initiative in ...

The Corellian Menace

Another rather unsettling thought as to the possible reason for "Solo"’s low numbers is that we all remember how well received a series of films detailing the life of one young Anakin Skywalker were. Perhaps many were afraid history would repeat itself with another origin story, even though the films were helmed by entirely different directors.

"Solo" has yet to break the $200 million mark here in the U.S., and at the very least needs to make $7,167,266 more to surpass "A Quiet Place" as the fourth highest grossing film of 2018 domestically. Even though I would love for it to happen, I don't see "Solo" making another $102 million here to surpass "Deadpool 2", not with what will be hitting the theaters this week and next. What I can say for certain is with me having the weekend off, I'll definitely be seeing it for a fourth time at least, and hopefully a fifth. To me, it's just too good to not catch on the big screen as much as I can, while I still can.

With Father's Day coming up this Sunday, let me wish all of our readers out there who either have fathers or are one, a day filled with all the things you'll cherish for years to come. For those who are like me and can no longer celebrate this special day together with our Fathers, spend time remembering all the good times you did share, and hopefully wherever they are, they'll know they're being thought of with love, admiration, and fondness. May the Force be with them, and all of you, always! Happy Father's Day.



Why “Solo” is doing so-low

First off, kudos to our founder, Bill Cable, for his informative piece last week on "Solo" and why it seems to be failing in the box office. It was very enlightening and brought up some things I'd never even thought about. But I believe there are even more reasons as ...

Solo: That is why you fail!

Let me start by telling you that I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story at 7pm on opening night with a half dozen of my PSWCS peeps. I enjoyed myself. My initial impression was that it was fun, but also pretty light weight and inconsequential. I liked most of the ...

Once I had everything that I needed to enter, I immediately headed for "Tomorrowland" to go to the store there and see what "May the 4TH" merchandise there was to be had. It was a pain getting into that area because as we were all heading in that direction, we ...

Droids Custom Gamorrean Guard: Inked!

It's been a long time since I've done any Droids Customs art... but I was able to get back into the swing of things pretty quickly! A week ago I penciled this art. And then Monday night I inked it. Completely. All in one session. Check it out!

Pretty badass, huh? I'm always trying to tell a story with my Droids Customs. This story is a tragedy.

Unless you're a rancor. Then it's a joyful tale about a tasty snack!

Next up will be to scan it in and start coloring. That's always time consuming. But it really shouldn't be too long before I'll be ready to start assembling this run. Fun times!!
