I continued work on my pencils on Monday night, and I pretty much finished!

If you look at last week's progress you can see the first thing I did was add some debris over which Ree Yees had tripped. The boxes were easy enough to source, but I wondered to ...

Unboxing TRE-3PO

I got a box in the mail yesterday. It had a big "1980 Who" sticker on it, which didn't ring any bells. But my memories were jogged when I got an email confirmation of delivery of my limited-run wood "TRE-3PO" action figure. A few months bag I got a message ...

That's right - once again CreatureCantina.com is going to Toy Fair! We'll be live-posting photos and impressions throughout the day Saturday February 22nd and Sunday February 23rd. We'll be visiting all the major Star Wars licensees (except for Hasbro because, apparently, covering Star Wars collecting with a modicum of humor IS FROWNED UPON IN THIS ESTABLISHMENT).

I'll be posting in-depth coverage right here on CreatureCantina.com after the event. But for your quick fix of Cantina coverage, you'll want to do the following:

I'm hoping if you click on that link from your phone it'll launch Instagram by default, but I have no idea if it'll actually work. Just search for Bill Cable if it doesn't. It'll be fine...

Our coverage is set to kick off bright and early with LEGO! Buckle up!!



Droids Custom Ree Yees: It begins!!

Ok, I've been sitting on my butt doing nothing long enough. I've gotten that twinge of restlessness that makes me realize it's time to get to work on another Droids Custom. My next project will be (in case you somehow missed the headline) Ree Yees!

Bina's Creature Stall
Perhaps you'd like to leave Batuu with something...living. Something you can take home, raise, and care for as opposed to the normal, mundane, cat, dog, or fish. Then this shop is for you! The baby Tauntaun squawks and coos when you pet it; the Rathtars shudder savagely; the Worrt frog lashes out its tongue; and the Pufferpig growls sweetly. Other creatures you may take home include: Wampas, Mynocks, Porgs, Kowakian Monkey Lizards, Krykna Spiders, Banthas, & Loth Cats. Larger, animatronic versions of some of these creatures will populate some of the cages and aquariums around the shop – but those aren't for sale.

Toydarian Toyshop
Overseen by Zabaka, a Toydarian. This is the shop you'd peruse if the toys you'd like to acquire are more like the kind of handmade stormtrooper young Jyn Erso used to play with, or the X-wing pilot doll that Rey had. Here they have crafted felt dolls that look like Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, Yoda, and even Kylo Ren. You can also purchase misting fans that look like "moisture vaporators". The shop also carries the fanfar clarinet that Figrin D'an's band played in the Mos Eisley Cantina, and the drums banged by the Ewoks in their victory celebrations.

SHOCKING revelation about the C-3PO Money Bank!

A couple weeks ago I was tagged in a For Sale post on Facebook by Big Picker James Simkins (thank you James!) for an Australian C-3PO "Money Bank." The sale included the original box, which is bold and funky.

Galaxy's Edge: The Dark Side v/s the Light

Galaxy's Edge (The Resistance Outpost)

The Resistance Outpost is located near one of the entrances to "Galaxy's Edge", right by Poe's X-Wing and the A-Wing fighter, and also by the now open "Rise of the Resistance". It's a few kiosks that sell the usual Resistance fare (hats, shirts, pins, etc…), but ...

The calm before the storm

So "The Rise of Skywalker" happened. The first season of "The Mandalorian" is finished. There's no new Star Wars until "The Clone Wars" on Disney+ February 17th. So we're in a bit of a lull.

Except I've been crazy busy with Star Wars stuff! I've been prepping for Star Wars Celebraion Anaheim, working on the PSWCS annual T-shirt design contest, and the 2020 PSWCS.org fundraiser... pretty much arting my arse off. But I can't share any of that work with anyone because it's all secret or unapproved. That makes writing these weekly CreatureCantina updates rough - everything I've been working on is classified! On top of that I'm getting ready for Toy Fair New York 2020.. but getting ready isn't really as exciting to you guys as posting coverage of the thing.

What to do? What to doooooo...?

Ah, what the hell... here's a Baby Yoda.

Stay tuned for future updates where I can share all the awesome artwork I've been working on!



2019 3PO collecting year in review

With the holidays falling on Wednesdays, it kinda screwed up my normal updates here. So I'm a week late in my wrap-up of 2019. It was a surprisingly good year! It didn't start out that way, though. I came home from Star Wars Celebration Chicago with a pile of ...

Typically I'd have taken and shared the following awesome photos to include with my For Sale post, but due to my social media black-out ahead of The Rise of Skywalker I had to rush that sale story before I could take them. Thankfully that didn't really hurt sales - ...
