Star Wars Figures Worst to First - EWOKS!

So my brother posted this video while I was in Chicago celebration my butt off. It is (most likely) the final video in our Worst to First Countdown series! And being all about the cartoon Ewoks... well we could have called the thing Worst to Next-to-Worst because there is really no first place medal to give among this dreck. Thank goodness easy targets make for good humor!

So what to do next? My brother has been brainstorming. He was thinking maybe creatures or vehicles. But I don't have any of the creatures or vehicles. What other options are there? Can't do modern because I barely own any modern these days. Just move on? I'm at a loss...

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020…But when???

by Darth Danno

I'll get to my coverage of Star Wars Celebration Chicago starting next week. First I wanted to tackle the announcement that was made at the end of it, and that was there will be another U.S. Celebration next year in Anaheim, but didn't announce any dates, so here are my hunches.

I'm thinking SWCA 2020 will be in May, over one of the following two weekends:

Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of "The Empire Strikes Back" . If they have Celebration from May 21-24 (or 25th if they're going to do a 5-day con again), then the event will actually begin exactly 40 years to the day of the opening of "Episode V” (It opened May 21st, 1980). But would they want to hold it over Memorial Day weekend? They held Celebration 2017 over Easter weekend, so anything is possible.

Or they may want to hold it the following weekend, May 28-31 (or June 1st if the con is to run 5 days). That way, May 31st will mark the one-year anniversary of the opening of "Galaxy's Edge" at Disneyland. They could have a huge after-hours bash for the attendees to mark the occasion.

If I'm correct about May, then tickets should go on sale sometime in July. I'm basing that on this past Celebration which was in April, and the tickets went on sale the beginning of June last year. Only time will tell if I'm right, we'll just have to wait & see.



Celebration Chicago - the 3PO Haul

Regular readers will know I'm a C-3PO focus collector. So every Celebration is an opportunity for me to add new and unique items to my collection. Chicago was no different.

While I didn't add what I was hoping to add (Vintage Meccano C-3PO), and I only spent a few hundred dollars out of several thousand I'd saved up, I did grab some cool pieces. I picked up a modern 12" removable limbs QC sign-off from the C-3PO : Tales of the Golden Droid Masterpiece Edition. It looks production-like to my eyes. No notable differences other than more aggressive battle-damage splattering from my retail example. But all the pieces are individually polly-bagged, and it comes with the sign-off card.

I also got these really cool Japanese folding scissors, a Vingtage loose 3PO with a nice dark gold hue, Tamashii Nations Meisho samurai 3PO, and of course lots of swag. That includes prototype swag of the 3PO pin with light-up eyes! Check out the images below!

Before I get into that, though, I want to extend an enormous “thank you” to Bill, for helping me get my hands on a Khetanna to review. I had meant to say that at the end of the review itself, but with the sheer ...

SCALE BARGE:

Let’s talk scale, because there are some incorrect claims whizzing about that need to be set right. I’ve done some research and some calculations (first with a calculator, then later refined with an online Imperial-to-Metric converter), and no matter what some people are saying online, HasLab’s Sail Barge is ...
