Droids Custom Squidhead: The proudest owner!

If we might revisit my last Droids custom for a moment, I'd like to explain one reason why you might have had more troubles than normal securing a Squidhead for your Bill Cable customs collection. I had fewer of these to sell than I did my last run, even though the run size was identical in size. Why, you ask? Because I decided to give one away (at great financial loss)!

Who would warrant such a sacrifice? I'll tell you who. The ACTUAL Squidhead!!

I've known Gerald Home for many, many years. I was commissioned to draw a "Cable Original" Squidhead for a gift when he attended All-Con in 2005! I met him at Celebration a few years later, and from then on any time we end up at the same convention he immediately recognizes me and gives me a big hug.

Squidhead has always been a favorite figure of mine even back when I was a kid, so I was always planning to do a Droids custom eventually. When Final Frontier Toys had their 40% off all loose figures sale I snatched up every Squidhead they had so I could finally make it happen. And I did it looking forward to being able to send Mr. Home one as a gift.

This is actually the third piece of Cable art in Mr. Home's collection. He also owns the previously-mentioned "Cable Original," and also a print from my legendary C7YB comic strip!

So apologies to the couple folks who tried to get a Squidhead after they sold out! (well... I suppose technically apologies to the very first person who tried to get a Squidhead after they sold out... the guys after that were SOL anyway) Take solace in the fact that the Squidhead you would have had went to a great place!
