Last month the collecting hobby lost a legend. John Kellerman, author of "Star Wars Vintage Action Figures" passed away, age 81.

I'm a bit hesitant to write this. I didn't know John Kellerman all that well. I met him a handful of times at ...

Holochess from Regal Robot!

It's been a while since we've shared something from Regal Robot. I think it's mostly because Danno is really busy with work these days, and he usually handles it. But last week I got a press release that was so cool, I just had to share it!

On May 4th you'll be able to order Holochess replica pieces! "A few years back, I was at Tippett Studios working on a restoration project. At the same time, Phil's team was preparing the holochess puppets for their stop motion work on Solo: A Star Wars Story. As a kid, I was pretty obsessed with stop motion after seeing the making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and how the tauntauns were brought to life. I'd always been fascinated by the chess creatures, but seeing these incredibly accurate modern interpretations in person and feeling the heft and scale of the puppets… it was really something special. I asked about recreating those awesome creatures for our fans via Regal Robot and I was over the moon when Phil graciously agreed to share the digital work his team did for the modern era Star Wars films. It's been 8 months since we started on this project and I am so excited to share this sneak peek at what we've been working on!" – Tom Spina (Regal Robot founder)

What a cool project! I'm looking forward to seeing the final pieces when they debut next month.

"GREAT AMERICAN PATCH HUNT"

So with everyone's Celebration memories popping up on social media this week, I was originally just going to make a post and share it myself across multiple pages to celebrate the completion of this little project I've been working on. Then I thought to myself; "Well that's ...

Considering last week turned out to be an absolute work-related clusterf..., I wasn't able to post their response. Add to that that one of them didn't get me their response until just a few hours ago (I won't mention who it is), at best I would have only been able ...

Mynock-Man proofs - they're REAL and they're spectacular!

Last week we celebrated CreatureCantina's 20th Anniversary on April 1st with the debut of my first ever Droids-style proof card.  And I gotta say - the sale/give-away was a lot more successful than I expected it to be.  I was thinking to myself, "If I sell around 30, I'll be happy.  ...

20th Anniversary Photocomic: Suffering for Your Art

by Beedo Sookcool

It's true, you know. Even highly successful artists in ludicrously successful franchises struggle and toil and sweat for months to get the look of their work "right." Sometimes, it takes years, and the look will evolve into something hardly recognisable from the original designs.

So for Creature Cantina's 20th Anniversary, itself a constantly changing work-in-progress and labour of love, here's an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how some of the iconic characters from our beloved Star Wars movies came to be, and how even the great visionaries need to keep going back to the drawing board. Literally.

So remember, dear readers: If, at first, you don't succeed . . . keep trying until you do!

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of CreatureCantina.com, I wanted to do something special.  Countless times I'm asked "Would you just sell me the cardback?" by people who missed out on my Droids customs.  I always reply no, they're a limited one-time run.  Well, to those people, and to all my ...

CreatureCantina.com SUCKS! LIVE!! Anniversary Special!

The staff of CreatureCantina celebrated 20 years in our semi-regular Zoom feature, "CreatureCantina.com SUCKS! LIVE!! (recorded)". Usually we just post the videos on our Facebook page, but this one is special so we wanted to share it here. And because we already have the embed code for YouTube and we're lazy, here's the YouTube version:

As I was about to upload the video to Youtube... I stumbled upon a 10th Anniversary video update that I has absolutely no recollection. Check out this blast from the past and see how much we've improved with age!



Buy the Droids Custom Mynock-Man NFT!!

by Bill Cable

You've seen (and purchased) the custom Droids-style proof card.  You've read the in-depth story of the proof card's creation.  You thought that was everything... but it wasn't!  Now you can buy something nobody else in the world owns:  The Mynock-Man non-fungible token (NFT)!  That's right - you can own the one-of-a-kind digital signature of ownership for this amazing piece:

CreatureCantina.com Image

For the low, low price of just one SINGLE Bitcoin, that NFT is yours!  (I'm assuming here you can buy one in Bitcoin.  When I was looking up how to get set up to sell an NFT, it was talking about "ether" (ETH) which is a different cryptocurrency.  But I don't know if I just clicked on a link sponsored by Ethereum or if all NFTs go through them.)  You heard that right - ONE Bitcoin!  That's like buying this thing for $1 (I'm assuming)!  One hell of a bargain!!

And you won't be getting some cheesy compressed .JPG, my friend!  You'll be getting an NFT for my original 300dpi Photoshop file!  That includes a scan of the original hand-drawn artwork and over 30 distinct layers of colors and textures.  You won't find a better NFT out there anywhere!!  So act today before you miss out forever!!

In all serious, though... if anyone out there is actually interested in buying an NFT from me for pretty much ANY of my art, and is willing to pay more than my cost of setting up the NFT, I'm game to jump through the hoops to make it happen.
