I'm pleased to announce the public sale of my newest Droids custom-carded action figure, 4-LOM! Check it out:
My apologies for the quality of the photos. I'm really not happy with them. I normally take my photos in sunlight, but I didn't finish making these until late last night, so
I didn't have that option.
The run for this figure is larger than any I've done before - EIGHTEEN figures! I ended up with extra bubbles thanks to the production process of those, and rather than toss
them in the trash I figured I'd use them all and hopefully reach a few more customers who'd otherwise miss out.
The custom features an original Vintage 4-LOM figure with accessories, a custom, hand-cast and painted resin coin replica, a vacu-formed bubble produced specifically to 4-
LOM's measurements, and a laser-printed card mounted onto a comic book backer. It's produced with acid-free components to prevent degredation.
If you'd like to purchase a 4-LOM, you're too late. Better luck on IG-88!
With all that I've had going on, I'm trying to play catch-up with all the non-Dad activities in my life, and I thought I'd start with that date at the end of Sept. that's near and dear to all of us Force followers.
Personally, I wish the list had included 6" Black Series wave 2 just so I knew it'd be hitting soon-ish, but beggars can't be choosers. And I can't complain when they have a Walgreen's EXCLUSIVE Black Series gold-arms C-3PO listed!
Hey there Droids Customs fans - here's the info you've been waiting for! I will be offering my Droids Customs 4-LOM for sale on Wednesday, October 19th.

Mark your calendars! One week from today, I'll be offering my latest Droids Custom for sale to you, my adoring public. Check out the final art:
Apologies for the shadows. My front porch has Halloween spider webs hung all over the place, so my normal light source is a bit obscured. This photo is actually about a week old. I've already finished 90% of assembling the figures. I just need to round out some corners and they'll be good to go.
Check back Monday-ish for finished photos of the run, and for the window when I'll be posting them for sale. Right now it's looking like sometime between 11AM-Noon Eastern, but that might change.
Greetings one and all! I hope everyone is well and didn’t miss me too terribly. As you may have surmised, my Father did indeed become one with the Force. It happened shortly after 6 pm on Aug 23rd. I could have spent that night in jail because just after the ...
Hasbro revealed a dozen new Rogue One action figures at New York Comic Con today. This included some pretty cool-looking ones, like the obviously undercooked Calamari Admiral Raddus and chess expert Bohdi Rook. It also included a kind of spoilery new Jyn Erso. You can check out the photos here:
I sized them down to something reasonable so you weren't forced to download 85MB files (like at some other Star Wars collecting sites... ;-) ). And I like a lot of these. But there's still a gaping hole in the collection I'd hoped would be addresses after my article a couple weeks ago. We still have no Saw Gerrera!! I'm telling you, Hasbro.... us Filoni fans out here are gonna revolt if this isn't fixed soon! We wanna see Saw! We wanna see Saw!!!
I was grabbing some loose beers at the "create your own 6-pack" shelves at the grocery store, when I noticed the best brew for a AF&TB feature I've ever come across. To all the Uzay fans out there I present Blue Star:
I've subbed a standard Vintage Kenner Snowtrooper which I've crudely Photoshopped blue for the world-famous Turkish bootleg (because I've never had a couple grand to burn on a real example). If anybody would like to send me a legit Blue Stars figure I'll happily swap out the photo. Blue Stars is the most recognized Vintage bootleg, mostly because it's so outrageous. Sure, Headman is rarer and more valuable, but Blue Stars is the king of the Uzay line.
As for the beer... I liked it quite a bit. It was smooth and mellow, with virtually no aftertaste. People who live for bitter IPAs would rate this just to the side of water when it comes to IBU. But the flavor was great, IMO. It comes in one punch as soon as it hits your tongue, and disappears after you swallow. Being a wheat beer, I expected something akin to Blue Moon (ha - a Blue Star to go with my Blue Moon), but the flavor here was much more conventional. Just a single note. And when I looked at the label, I knew exactly why. It said "Water, malt, hops, yeast & that's all." So yeah - it makes total sense there's nothing complex here. It's just a straightforward, quality brew. I could see myself really enjoying a case of these.
Drink if you like: Beers that aren't that bitter. Wheat beers. Dark, mellow ales.
Yesterday I received a nice email from my favorite Quarren accountant, the legendary Gerald Home. He'd just posted a video greeting for Movie Con Chile which showed off his Star Wars collection. Check it out:
The eagle-eyed among you (or the non-blind) will notice a pretty familiar drawing at the 25-second mark. That's the "Cable Original" I drew as a commissioned gift for Gerald when he attended Dallas All-Con just about forever ago. It's great to see it still hung with pride in Home's home.
I braved the torrential rains and flooding in Western Pennsylvania late Thursday night to line up outside Toys 'R Us for their midnight release of Rogue One toys. It was a blast standing outside as it poured for 40 minutes, while the workers in the dry, enclosed foyer laughed at ...
