Well, these are finally shipping, provided your orders weren't whimsically cancelled. I ordered two, and they arrived . . . with Wal-Mart's usual flare for packing collectible items, of course, so there are dings and creases all over the place on both figures' cards, yet they somehow look better in ...

Surprise proto discovered in the Protocol-osseum!

Over Labor Day weekend I had the occasion to welcome some collectors over to my house to view my collection (and drink way, WAY less beer than I anticipated).  I had spent the previous month off-and-on cleaning and rearranging things so the collection room would be tip-top for the guests.  ...

Contrary to its name, Situation Normal (Streetside Brewery, Cincinnati) is anything but a normal beer.

Over Labor Day weekend I attended (and helped organize) a gathering of Star Wars collectors.  Fun times!  Lots and lots and LOTS of drinking.  The first night I really got into ...

At the OSWCC Summer Social in July I picked up a Darth Vader IPA. I wasn't a fan. To follow that up at the PSWCS Summer Social in August, I picked up another Darth Vader IPA...

Action Figures & Their Beers - The power of the hops side

I picked up something at the OSWCC Summer Social last month - BEER!

CreatureCantina.com Image

There was a handful of cans of "I Find Your Lack of Hops Disturbing" by Taft's Brewing Company sitting on my good friend Zac Schneider's table.  I asked him what he wanted for one, and he told me I could have one.  So hey - free beer!

But, unfortunately, IPA beer...

My distaste for IPAs is about as well-documented here as Beedo's, but given a true Star Wars beer, I really didn't have much choice but to review it.  So how was it?  As soon as I pour it wafts of floral scents were noticeable from a long ways off.  Upon an initial mouthful, it was more watery than I expected.  It was bitter enough to make your mouth pucker.  The bitter taste lingers for a long, long time.  Literally several minutes.  Ultimately, this is an unremarkable and generic IPA.

To pair with beer I chose, quite obviously, the character who uttered the famous line.  I really didn't have much choice but him.

Drink this if you also like: IPAs for reasons I can't fathom, I suppose.



A couple new hues to the Protocol-osseum!

I'm at the point with my focus collection that things I need pop up only once in a blue moon, and when they do 9 times out of 10 they are so expensive I don't even make a play for them.  Do I want a 12-back Meccano or a Poch?  Absolutely!  ...

CREATURE COMFORTS' TROPICÁLIA

Here's another offering from Creature Comforts, a local brewery a few scant miles away from us, in Athens, Georgia. They have a brewpub in town. And it's a college town, so it's frequently swarming with man-bun-sporting hipsters who wear old-fashoined hats "ironically," and think that the beer world ...

Droids Custom Commando: SOLD OUT!!

by Bill Cable
on 2021-08-04, 07:59:46

It's been seven months since my last actual custom, which is longer than normal. I think this one was worth the wait.

CreatureCantina.com Image

Produced in a limited, one-time run of 20 pieces, Rebel Commando is the 22nd figure in my line of Droids customs. It features a... feature that this line hasn't seen since Gamorrean Guard! To keep the figure straight in the bubble, there's a molded tray behind it. That's some premium sh*t right there, my friends! I had to trim the things down a bit to get the bubble to seal properly; heck - I was worried for a while I couldn't use them at all. But it worked out fantastically.

CreatureCantina.com Image

If you would like to purchase one of these beauties, I'm sorry, but they've already sold out. Thanks for your interest!

Please note - this figure will ship NEXT WEEK. Usually I ship them out immediately, but I have the PSWCS Summer Social this weekend and I'm very busy ahead of that, so packing and shipping will need to wait.
