This week I'm excited to review another brew from Spoonwood Brewing Co. - Grovin' Up Slowly. It's a 5.8% ABV Mexican chocolate blondie. Image

I opted for the 32-ounce aluminum crowler this time out, rather than trade in a glass growler.  For composition reasons.  What can ...

on 2020-08-12, 07:33:38

This is it! If you can't make it to any of these last stops, you've missed out on the "Bounty Hunter Tour 2020". On Aug 15th Dominic Pace will be at "Fun Factory" in Ripon, CA. and on Aug 16th he'll be at "DJ's Collectibles" in Hanford, CA. Like I have stated in all the other posts, please contact the shop directly for exact appearance times, and be sure to follow any and all social distancing guidelines put in place for everyone's safety.

Per Mr. Pace's Twitter post on Aug 8th, over $7,000.00 was earned for comic book stores throughout the country, $1,000.00 for "The Peter Mayhew Foundation", along with $1000.00 for "Make a Wish".

Way to go sir! Hoping everything goes as well for these final stops as they did for the rest of the tour. To both yourself and your son; take care, stay safe & healthy, and MTFBWYA!

Bill Cable here for you today with another rip-off of Beedo's long-running AF&TB series. I'm reviewing another beer from my local brewpub, Spoonwood Brewing Co., a Belgian-style witbier named "Creatures Kissing." Image

With a name like that, I had no choice but to do an AF&TB ...

The "Gekko" Tour moves on, but is winding down...

by Darth Danno
on 2020-08-05, 07:01:58

This week, Dominic Pace will be at "I Had That Vintage Toys" in Belleville, IL. On Aug 6th, and at "Destination Toys" in Jacksonville, IL. on Aug 8th. Then he starts traveling west back toward home, stopping at "Muse Comics and Games" in Colorado Springs, CO. on Aug 11th. As I say every week, please check with the shop(s) directly for exact appearance times, and please remember to adhere to all social distancing guidelines put in place for everyone's safety and peace of mind. There are only 2 more scheduled stops after these, and they are both in CA.

On another note, I was saddened to hear about the passing of Wilford Brimley over the weekend (He played "Noa" in the 1985 made-for television film: "Ewoks: The Battle for Endor"). I got to meet him at 2 conventions last year, and looking back at it, I met him for the first time on Aug 3, 2019, and he passed away Aug 1,2020. Considering this is a leap year, he passed away exactly a year and a day after we met. Just goes to show that no one really knows what can happen in a years' time. My thoughts go out to his family, and may he rest in peace.

Announcing new Sith art from LEGO!

The LEGO Group is launching a new canvas for creative expression alongside a series of much-loved partners. Designed for adults who pride themselves on their love of pop culture, four new LEGO® Art sets give creative adults a different way to transform their passion into art. Image

Those who love Warhol or Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles or iconic characters from the Marvel Universe and Star Wars™ galaxy can pay homage to their idols by creating their very own LEGO artwork portrait to proudly display in their homes, offices or wherever they enjoy their music, film or art.

The LEGO Art sets offer adults a new creative experience to help them relax and recharge as they transform a blank canvas (or in this case, small interlinking base plates) using LEGO tiles. Each set can be reimagined in a number of different ways to express the personality of each different builder, and to make it easy and simple for pop culture lovers to refresh the LEGO Art piece on display in their house. All four new sets come with a signature tile unique to the set that is worthy of any true work of art, and a new hanging element to make them easy to hang up and switch around. Image

The LEGO® Marvel Studios Iron Man set will be available exclusively from LEGO Retail Stores and while the other three sets will be available from retailers from 1st August 2020, or from 1st September in the US. Products may be available to pre-order from 1st July from selected retailers in certain countries.

Darth Danno is expanding! (no, not just in pant size)

by Darth Danno
on 2020-07-29, 07:57:30

First off, I want to make this clear that IN ADDITION TO writing For, I am now also going to be writing for "". I will still be turning in material to Bill once a week (personal schedule permitting) and writing for TBT @ 3 times a month. Whereas for I write primarily about Star Wars, TBT's site focuses on the works of Lucas, Spielberg, and John Williams. (I just wrote a piece for them regarding soundtracks), as for why I'm doing it, I'm just trying to expand my fandom-writing, so please be sure to check it out!

The "Gekko" Tour keeps rolling along!

on 2020-07-29, 07:54:03

This coming week, you can meet Dominic Pace on July 30th at "Bitz and Buttons" in Ft. Lauderdale, FL., and on July 31st at "Flynn's Arcade" in Margate, FL. As always, please adhere to any and all social distancing guidelines set in place and contact the venue directly for exact appearance times. After that, he is off until Aug 6th when he'll be appearing in Belleville, IL. I honestly was thinking of driving down there to see him again until I looked on a map and saw Belleville was @ a 4 1/2-hour drive from my house, and that's one way! Here's hoping he'll be able to come to the Chicago suburbs sometime. If you are around one of the stops and have the chance to meet him, I really hope you do because he and his son are super nice and great to spend some time with. Plus, you're helping to support small businesses during these strange times we're living in. So it's a win-win!

Following the spectacular, instant-sell-out success of its Star Wars The Vintage Collection Galaxy’s Edge Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run where, despite it's $400 price tag, collectors fell all over themselves to pre-order this hunk of plastic, Hasbro has decided to expand the line to other popular, successful vehicles!

Pre-orders go live on at 9am Pacific sometime next week. Image

But the big treat, and I do mean BIG, is the Star Wars The HasLab Collection ToyFair Khetanna Version 2.0!!
