Good news everyone! I'm headed back to the Big Apple - the City that Never Sleeps - in one month to cover all the new Star Wars toys and collectibles at Toy Fair 2018! I'll be headed there with my trusty photographer Joe Kersavage, and plan to visit every booth that has any Star Wars stuff at all over the course of three days. We'll be checking out LEGO, Mattel, Funko, Kotobukiya, JAKKS Pacific, ANOVOS, Metal Earth, and two dozen other companies that I've mapped out so far! It's gonna be epic!

There seems to be a toymaker missing from that list... can't seem to place a finger on it... perhaps we'll still get an invitation though. If they want press coverage or whatever...

I'll be posting live on Instagram, so be sure to follow @billcable to see the photos first! And then check back on CreatureCantina.com over the following weeks to see our extensive coverage.



"The Last Jedi" opening weekend (Fri)

Didn't sleep too well on account of what had happened to my car on Thu., so morning came REALLY early on Friday. Finished packing and waited for my friend Ron to drive me to the airport. Upon getting there and arriving at my gate, I fielded calls from the insurance and rental car companies, telling them I would be back in touch with them sometime the following week upon my return. I boarded my flight and was soon in beautiful, warm, Orlando.

Disney World was responsible for getting my luggage from the airport to the hotel, so I simply boarded the motor coach and was on my way to my hotel, the All Star Sports Resort. Upon arrival, I checked in, dropped my carry-ons off in my room, and went down to the hotel cafeteria to get something to eat. Then I went and perused the gift shop in the lobby, finding nothing there, returned to my room.

By this time, it was mid-late afternoon and I was dressed for a Chicago December, not a Florida one, so I wanted to wait for my luggage to arrive so I could change before heading off to Disney Springs, so I lay down to take a nap. Once my luggage arrived, instead of changing and heading out, I decided to pick up where I left off with my nap…and when I woke up it was @ 11:00 at night! So much for getting anything done today. That just meant I'd have all the more to do come Saturday.

TO BE CONTINUED…

Here's what I think will be the 10 best films scheduled to be released 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. Meg
  9. Deadpool 2
  10. Solo: A Star Wars Story



The best of 2017, then and now

by Darth Danno
on 2018-01-10, 10:19:34

This was the list I posted way back on Jan 25th as to what I thought the 10 best films were going to be in 2017:

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2.
  2. Kong: Skull Island
  3. Wonder Woman
  4. Alien: Covenant
  5. Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  6. Saw: Legacy
  7. Underworld: Blood Wars
  8. John Wick 2
  9. Murder on the Orient Express
  10. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Now that 2017 is over, this is the "OFFICIAL" list of the 10 best films of the year (in my humble opinion):

  1. Alien: Covenant
  2. Wonder Woman
  3. IT
  4. Underworld: Blood Wars
  5. John Wick 2
  6. Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  7. Saw: Legacy
  8. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  9. Murder on the Orient Express
  10. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Again, some films moved up, others moved down, some surprises made the list, and other blockbusters 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 2018 brings, but I feel that a certain film opening in May will be taking the #1 spot yet again.





Real Last Jedi Thoughts--with spoilerific Spoilers!

Okay, here’s my real thoughts on Star Wars: Episode XIII--The Last Jedi.

Although this film has done well financially, it has not done as well as people seem to have expected it to do. For example, it seems to be underperforming compared to The Force Awakens. As ...

I still can't believe it . . . .

You hear about it, but you never think it would happen to you. You think, "Nah, that's just an exaggeration," or "That kind of thing only happens to other people." Well, it happened to me the other day.

I was called a misogynist because I didn't fawn and grovel over The ...

HUGE NEWS! Newly-discovered Vintage C-3PO MOC!

After a productive but largely unmemorable first 11-and-a-half months of collecting in 2017, I wrapped up the year with something completely unexpected - a never-before-documented Vintage C-3PO MOC. And I almost blew it because I was an idiot. Let me set the stage...

Early morning, December 21st. I was doing my ...

Went over to my friend Eric's house early in the afternoon as he was having a pre- "TLJ" party. He had the films playing on his T.V., we ate, played SW Trivial Pursuit, and sat around and talked all things Star Wars. @ 4:00, we hopped into cars and drove ...

In memoriam

by Darth Danno
on 2018-01-03, 06:57:28

Was very sad to hear that Alfie Curtis, the man who played Dr. Evazan in "A New Hope" passed away at the age of 87, a year after we lost Carrie Fisher. We also lost John Mollo, who designed costumes for "Star Wars" and "The Empire Strikes Back", who passed away on Oct 25th at age 86.

They have become one with the Force. A big thank you to them for what they have contributed to the Star Wars universe, may they rest in peace, and may their families find comfort at this time. Even though they have left us, they live again each time the films are played somewhere, be it on the screen of a huge multiplex, or on the television screen in someone's home, and that alone makes them immortal. May the Force be with them always, even in death, and may they rest in peace.
