Holidays are over. Time to make some new art, right?

A couple weeks ago I posted on Bespin Prime looking for bulk lots of figures for my next Droids custom. Of the four options I put out there, turns out Klaatu is by far the easiest one to buy in ...

I was 3-for-3 last week, and that's not a good thing!

I received an e mail at the beginning of last week stating that my order for the Wal-Mart exclusive "Mandalorian" action figure was cancelled due to not enough supply to meet then demand. Then the next day I get another e mail that my Wal-Mart exclusive "Incinerator Trooper" was cancelled for the same reason. As if that wasn't enough, I get a third e mail during the week stating my Wal-Mart exclusive "Holiday Black Series Snowtrooper" was cancelled, again for the same reason. I have friends in the area who ordered these 3 figures as well, yet for whatever reason, only their "Mandalorian" figure order was cancelled, and not the other 2 (how did I get so lucky?). Yet towards the end of the week, Wal-Mart had the Mandalorian figure back up for sale on their site, I RE-ordered it, it shipped, and I got it over the weekend. My buddy Chris went to his local WM this past weekend and was able to find some of the Incinerator Trooper figures and got me one, now all I must do is find the Snowtrooper. This never would have happened if they produced 10,000,000 of each of these.

It was only a matter of time. I never thought I'd ever get my hands on a Vintage POTF Amanaman figure for a reasonable price. And you know what? After thirty-six long years . . . I still haven't. But thanks to Repro and Custom Artiste Extraordinaire, Stan Solo ...

"ACTION FIGURES AND THEIR BULLETS"

I am a simple man, and thus like simple things. I prefer things to be uncomplicated and un-superfluous. I don't do subtext or subtlety. I prefer function over form. And so it is I like my beer: simple, cold and American. I like Lagers. And when ...

New Year's Resolution - Organize!

on 2021-01-06, 08:19:55

I primarily focus on collecting C-3PO stuff (you may have seen some mention of this in the past). As a long-time convention-goer, short-time member of the 501st, and organizer of the annual PSWCS.org charity medallion fundraiser, I've found that I've also accumulated a pretty hefty, unintentional collection of Star Wars ...

Ask Amanda & Eric – Eric's response

I was supposed to have a response to this question from both Amanda and Eric this week, I got Eric's in good time, and Amanda said she sent hers as well, but I never received it. She said she would re-send it again Tuesday morning, but as of compiling this ...

"NANNY LIKED GUNGANS"

My Nanny liked Gungans.

Ona Jones, my maternal grandmother passed away on the Tuesday before Christmas, and she liked Gungans. While not the biggest Star Wars fans, she did enjoy the movie and would watch them with me from time to time and her favorite film was Episode 1 ...

The final "Ask Eric" for 2020 but wait… there's more!

by Darth Danno
on 2020-12-30, 08:09:20

The final question I have for Eric Pfeifer in 2020 is this:

"With no new Star Wars movie, and no SW Celebration in 2021, what are you looking forward to in the coming year?"

Then I thought, how can I make this more interesting to our readers, specifically any female readers that we might have, and came up with an answer: Why not ask the same question to Eric's fiancée Amanda?

That's right! From now on this will be titled "Ask Amanda & Eric" (I put Amanda first because "A" comes before "E" in the alphabet and also, ladies first). They each must write their own responses and send them to me separately, THEN they can compare notes. So, I think it'll be interesting to see if their points of view are similar, or different. Only time, and the various questions will tell.

Amanda is a die-hard Star Wars fan, just like Eric. She's a content creator for @Twinsunsoutpost on Twitter, Social Media Supervisor at mycollectorsoutpost.com, and just recently joined the "Sabers and Spells" podcast. She's also a big fan of the "Harry Potter" franchise, a fellow dog parent, is an excellent cook, and an accomplished hair stylist.

Be sure to be here next week to see what their answers entail. In the meantime, from all of us here at CC.com, to all of you, may you have a safe, and happy New Years. Here's hoping 2021 is a better year than its predecessor, it's gotta be, I don't think I could handle another year like this, and I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way.



Unboxing my biggest purchase of 2020!

by Bill Cable
on 2020-12-23, 08:05:18

2020 was a pretty slow year for me collecting-wise.  My only notable purchases were the "master run" of C-3PO Danbury Mint chess piece prototypes and a Kenner-sculpt Takara C-3PO 12-back.  Part of that was everything being cancelled for COVID.  The other part is it's just really hard to find ...
