Boy, time sure flew, didn't it? Seems only yesterday I posted about being able to order this set on Amazon! They are now gone from Amazon's own listings, and are already starting to show up under scalpers' accounts for more than double the original ordering price. But they're also starting ...

THE BRUERY COCONUT MACAROONS

Bear with me, because you are going to want to read this for the recommendation, I just need to do a little set-up, first.

For depressing medical reasons, I don't drink much alcohol anymore. But I recently had a birthday, and Greeata bought a bunch of beers to ...

More goodies incoming from Regal Robot!

on 2020-07-01, 08:19:52

Today we're sharing a SNEAK PEEK at the two editions that make up our limited run of CZ-3 life-sized prop replica busts. For this 1:1 prop recreation, we worked with a scan of the original droid costume to faithfully reproduce the wonderfully organic asymmetry in the costume's mask, originally sculpted by legendary film sculptor, Brian Muir for Star Wars: A New Hope. Each bust will be made in the U.S.A. and hand detailed by the FX artists in our New York studio. Product pages and galleries will be live in one week and both editions will be available to order on July 13th starting at 12pm EST.

Visit the below link for the announcement with descriptions of both editions and a quote from me talking about our process on this new life-sized character creation!

https://regalrobot.com/news/starwars-cz3-life-sized-prop-replica-bust/

For those of you who might not be aware, Brian Muir is a British sculptor who created Darth Vader's helmet & armor using Ralph McQuarrie's design. He also sculpted the Stormtrooper armor as well as the head for the Death Star Droid, and some finishing work on the C-3PO full suit.

I know that when RR first announced they were collaborating with Mr. Muir, I had my fingers crossed for a life-size bust of the great one, Mr. Tom Spina himself! But then came to the realization that mere mortals like myself could never handle awesomeness, greatness, & perfection of that magnitude! But hopefully this will suffice and appease the masses.

Until next week, have a safe, happy, and healthy 4th of July from CC.com & Regal Robot!

Action Figures & Their Beers - Blissful enlightenment

Sometimes it's difficult to find the right action figure to pair with a beer. Other times...

Merry Monks by Weyerbacher Brewing is a 9.3% ABV Belgian style tripel. I found it to be slightly boozy,  but less so than I'd expect from a beer this strong.  ...

Some sad news to report...

by Darth Danno
on 2020-06-24, 06:36:22

There was an artist I would occasionally buy artwork online from by the name of Armando Huerta, He did characters from Marvel, DC, LOTR, Star Wars, etc... All of what I saw were just the female characters, and a lot of what he did cannot be shown here due to the adult nature of the pictures.

CreatureCantina.com Image

His prints sold for a couple hundred dollars each on his website, but he would often run sales where you could get the artwork for 90% off, so it was really a good deal. I went to his site sometime in late May, just to see if he had any new Star Wars-related pieces, or if he was running any sales, and everything had been taken off the site. I thought; "Well, this is odd." and went onto Social Media to see if I could find out what had happened. It turns out he passed away back on May 10th! I could not find the cause of death anywhere, so I posted the question on Twitter, and one user replied saying he had committed suicide.

(Now even his website says "RIP", so his passing has been confirmed, but the information below came to me from another Twitter user, and I have not been able to confirm or deny it's veracity. If anyone can say if this is true or not, it would be greatly appreciated.)

Now if this IS true, this is very distressing and unsettling. My sincerest condolences go out to his family, and the art world has lost a great talent. May he rest in peace.

Happy Anniversary!

by Tresob Yr

In the true spirit of anniversaries, I decided to run my Cantina Anniversary contribution a full two-and-a-half months late.

But thanks to the unrelenting persistence of a certain respiratory virus, the joke is still relevant!

But in all sincerity, I hope you and yours are well and safe. We're all healthy at the Tresob household...but sanity is running scarce. I mean, it took me this long just to post a single image file.



Droids Custom R5-D4 - SOLD OUT!!

by Bill Cable
on 2020-06-17, 07:53:20

If you've been following along with the production of my latest Droids custom (a fairly safe assumption... otherwise why would you be here now?), you know this one has been a unique experience. I expected this to be another Yak Face project - I'd supply the art and then just wait for the check. But an artistic disagreement threw that plan out the window, and for the first time I was faced with the daunting challenge of customizing an action figure on my own. Based on the feedback I've already received, I was up to the task.

CreatureCantina.com Image

And not only did the figures come out pretty good, people are losing their minds about the art. "The best one you've done" I keep hearing. And man, that feels awesome. I did think I had a great concept. Knowing that I successfully translated it from my mind to paper is satisfying.

CreatureCantina.com Image

But enough of me patting myself on the back - I know what you're really looking for is how to buy this thing. The price will be $115 shipped in the USA, $110 + shipping worldwide. International shipping will almost certainly cost $25. But I can ship two for that price, so if you have a local friend who wants one too, there you go! I know those prices are higher than what I typically charge, but given all the extra work I had to put into these, I hope it's justified. If you want to order one, I've got some bad news. They've completely sold out!

Thanks for joining me on this journey.
