The Wookiee Arcade / Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire
« on: January 5, 2018, 09:16 AM »
The VR experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire opens at The Void in Down Town Disney at Disneyland Resort this week. It's a virtual reality experience where you were VR goggles and a computer backpack and shoot stormtroopers.

Here’s how the VOID explains the story:
“Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team’s orders.”

Star Wars Universe / Is Star Wars special anymore?
« on: January 2, 2018, 12:53 PM »
Since we can expect a new Star Wars movie every year for the foreseeable future does this make a new Star Wars movie opening  special? We use to have to wait 3-4 years for a new movie and wait ten years for a new trilogy. Each release felt exciting and new. Now we will get a new movie every year. Each one will be hit or miss in quality and how well it does in the theaters. As for toys, we only get a wave or two major characters now instead of weird background characters.  What are your feelings on this? Do you like watching the trilogy movies or the anthology movies? Will one be better than the other? is that feeling of "special" still there?

Power of the Jedi / Clear Darth Vader
« on: November 6, 2017, 03:41 PM »
I just picked up a unpainted clear POTJ Darth Vader dagobah from Hong Kong. Is this bootleg or just an unpainted figure? Any info on this? I kind of like it and it was cheap.

Has anyone seen the "leaked" photo of TLJ Luke dressed up as a First Order Stromtrooper? Is it just a custom figure?

Vintage Kenner / Plastic Galaxy
« on: January 13, 2017, 09:12 AM »
Last night I watched on Amazon a documentary called Plastic Galaxy. It about the creation of the original Star Wars vintage line of toys. They talk about the origins of Kenner and how they got the license. Lots of talk from toy designers and some pictures of prototypes that we never got. They go all the way up to the creation of the POTF2 line. Good hour long documentary about our favorite toys.

Watto's Junk Yard / LA Car Show
« on: November 23, 2016, 11:51 AM »
Nissan had a large display of Rogue One items at the Los Angeles Car Show. I liked the life size TIE fighter behind the Nissan Rogue. They had a VR helmet with an Stormtrooper attack.

The Original Trilogy / I am your Father documentary
« on: November 21, 2016, 09:45 AM »
This is a new documentary on the life of David Prowse the man that played Darth Vader. They go into detail on his Hammer Horror days and how he got the job as Darth Vader. They talk about how George Lucas forbid Prowse from ever going to an official Star Wars convention because he thinks Prowse gave away the ending to Return of the Jedi. Lucas also never told Prowse that he wouldn't be part of the unmasking of Darth Vader so the documentary director recreates the unmasking with Prowse playing Vader.  Thankfully Lucas is out of the picture so maybe we can meet him at a future Star Wars Celebration.

Star Wars Action Figures / Sideshow snow bunny Padme with new head
« on: September 14, 2016, 01:01 PM »
I'm thinking of replacing the axe murder head from the Sideshow Snowbunny Padme with one that looks more like Natalie Portman. How difficult is it to remove the head? Would any 1/6 scale head work? I'm thinking of putting this head on instead.

Just a fun video of the amazing cosplay costumes at Wondercon at Los Angeles Convention Center this year. I love what they did with Kylo Ren and Han Solo through the video.
