It's certainly no surprise that I, the embodiment of CreatureCantina, will be attending Celebration Chicago. What I'm happy to announce today is that CreatureCantina will be attending Celebration Chicago 2019 in an official capacity!! That's right readers - CreatureCantina was granted media credentials! Woot woot!!

In three weeks I'll be polishing off the lens of my trusty iPhone 7 Plus to share all sorts of photos and impressions of the convention. It's a great thing that I got a pass this time, since last time I really slacked off on taking photos! This will give me a mandate to properly archive the festivities. I'll be posting stuff on the fly on the official CreatureCantina Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CreatureCantina/) and on my personal Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/billcable/). If you haven't liked or followed those accounts, now is a great time to start so you're all set come April 10th (because the BTS day-before stuff is the juiciest stuff!). See you in Chicago!

If we might revisit my last Droids custom for a moment, I'd like to explain one reason why you might have had more troubles than normal securing a Squidhead for your Bill Cable customs collection. I had fewer of these to sell than I did my last run, even though ...

I was 2 for 2... unfortunately

by Darth Danno
on 2019-02-27, 06:39:20

I didn't watch the Oscars, had no plans to. Knew "Solo" wasn't going to win, and I was right. But then I saw on social media that people were complaining about various celebrities who were omitted from the "In Memoriam" segment, and even though I hadn't yet looked to see specifically those that weren't mentioned, I was betting Gary Kurtz would have been left off. So I found someone who had posted that segment of the Academy Awards on YouTube, and wouldn't ya know... I was right once again. Each year I find more and more reason to despise that awards show, because each and every year they keep adding fuel to my fire, or ire as it were. I'll even go so far as to say that no matter what Episode IX may be nominated for, it will come away empty handed. Hollywood simply can't, or doesn't know how to deal with absolute perfection, which sums up the Star Wars movies in a nutshell.



Neo-T's CC.com Debut

It's a major snow day for the Tribe Tresob. My work is closed. Mrs. T's work is closed. And Neo-T's work is closed. And it's a Wednesday...the old CC.com update day! So, I figured how better to spend time with my family than making an action figure photo comic.

Behold "Starro Wars," a DC-Star Wars crossover event written and directed by Neo-T, 4.5 years old. It may well be the best comic I've posted to the site ever.

I have no idea how he knows about Starro, either. I think he's learning his pop culture on the streets. I thought I taught him better than that.



Droids Custom Squidhead: SOLD OUT!!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-02-20, 06:59:02

And now you can order Squidhead (probably... unless it says they're sold out below)!

CreatureCantina.com Image

Produced in a limited run of 15 pieces, each custom Droids-style MOC figure features an authentic Squidhead action figure and weapon, a specially designed vacuformed bubble, and a painted plastic resin coin cast from the Vintage POTF Sail Skiff coin

CreatureCantina.com Image

The front features my own original artwork. Uncle Gundy's photo and bio have been replaced on the back with Squidhead's. The bubble is attached with double-sided permanent scrapbooking tape (which occasionally lifts a little, so you might need to put a book on it to reseal it).

CreatureCantina.com Image

To order, you gotta get up a little earlier in the morning. My apologies, but they've sold out.

Good luck! And thanks for your patronage!

So, Steve's been doing yeoman's work covering Toy Fair 2019 in NYC. He's posted a bunch of photos on the CreatureCantina Facebook page. Rather than re-upload all those photos to CreatureCantina (redundant work), here's a list of his posts:
