When we last got together, I had finished spray-painting all my R5-D4 parts. So 30 white domes, 30 white bodies, 30 gray necks, and 60 white legs. All sparkly and ready for painting and assembly. First up, applying the body stickers. This was fairly straightforward. The big challenge was ...

Is this some sort of new math???

Saw that OfficialPix finally secured the signing with Ewan McGregor since ACE Boston was cancelled. Now I didn't have to do anything because I was able to secure an autograph back in Dec, but this was for new orders, yet something doesn't make sense to me and maybe one of you can explain it.

Now the rate I was charged originally was $239.99, it is now $349.99, so it is gone up $110.00, that I get.

If you want him to sign AND put his character name, the cost is now $499.99, if you want it personalized, it is $499.99, if you desire both, it is $649.99. I understand all of this as well.

But here is the catch. Once you select what size photo you'd like him to sign, either an 8x10, 11x14, or 16x20, the price automatically goes up! It is now $369.99 for an 8x10, $449.99 for an 11x14, and $459.99 for a 16x20. So in my opinion, there's really nothing you can get for $349.99! I know that is for his signature, but you want him to sign something other than the air. Wouldn't it make more sense to start the pricing at $369.99, say that includes an 8x10 photo, and if you'd like a larger size, that would incur an additional cost depending on what size photo you'd like? Anyone else besides me think this is a strange way of pricing?



And here we are...!

I am not sure if any of you realize what today (Wednesday) is, but it is exactly 3 months until Star Wars Celebration is SUPPOSED to start, and we are still left in a holding pattern. They did send out an update back on April 30th which I have included here, but other than that, zip! With SWC Chicago, by this time we'd already had our first autograph announcements, so I don't know what to expect, I just think they should make some sort of definitive decision very soon so everyone knows how to proceed with flights and whatever else needs to be done in planning for a trip like this. I have seen postings on social media from people asking/hoping for the con to be postponed over COVID-19 fears. What is everyone's opinion on this? Should SWC 2020 continue if allowed to? What safeguards would have to be put in place for you to feel safe and still want to attend?

Thanks to a tremendous amount of support, PSWCS.org can announce that over 700 Boba Fett charity medallions sold within the first 24 hours of going live. Sales continued steadily through Tuesday and now fewer than 250 medallions are left.

CreatureCantina.com Image

PSWCS.org is overwhelmed by the success of our 2020 fundraiser so far. We’d like to ask all supporters to be patient, shipping has already begun but it may take several weeks to process all orders.

Celebrating 40 years of The Empire Strikes Back and our 10th charity, the 2020 Boba Fett medallion supports Valhalla Veteran’s Services. The medallion is limited to 1,000 pieces and sells for $12.50 shipped in the US. With sales being this brisk, we anticipate a quick sellout.

The Boba Fett medallion is fully approved by Lucasfilm and features the likeness of Boba Fett on the front along with the date and the name of the charity, Valhalla Veteran’s Services. Each medallion will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and receipt as they are tax deductible. International purchases are welcome, extra shipping charges will apply.

It was one hell of a productive week on the customizing front. First thing I needed to do was cast some coins. That turned out to be a bit of an adventure, because my plastic turned to slush. I use a product called EasyFlo 60, which consists of two bottles ...

Droids Custom R5-D4 - First Colors!

Over the last week I found a small window of time to put down the basic color areas for my Droids R5-D4. Pretty basic stuff. Lots of mouse clicking and inverse selections.

One thing I did find interesting... the Jundland Wastes are very pink. When I think desert, I think yellows and browns. But the reference photos and movie stills I found for Tatooine are closer in hue to Pepto Bismol. So that's what I'm going with.

Talk about timing!

When writing last week's article about Amanda and Eric's birthdays, I had absolutely no idea what was to transpire this week. I saw on Monday afternoon that I had a missed call from Eric, which was odd because normally we communicate via text, not talking on the phone. Then Amanda ...
