Star Wars: Tamashii Nations’ Darth Maul… 素晴らしい!

   If I could afford anything in this line, I would get this guy. Next to the Stormtroopers in Yoroi, this design resonates with my love of Star Wars and my admiration of the Feudal Japanese aesthetic. Darth Maul is simply stunning. The character was one of my favorite parts of the Phantom Menace, and I totally dig the treatment that this gives him.

Star Wars Follies by RetroBlasting

   From time to time I love to revisit RetroBlasting‘s video catalogue. Check out their Star Wars Follies series. It’s pretty cool to chart the progress that Michael and Melinda have made in their production quality. Michael’s sardonic whit is a nice punctuation on in-depth mini documentaries on great toys, toons, and times.

   Check out more from them on YouTube, give them a follow on Twitter, and like them on Facebook.

   I wait for this podcast each week. Podcasts are life for me in my daily occupation. His former podcast, Star Wars Collectors Galaxy, was a favorite collector focused show of mine for the last year. Vintage was a huge reason why that was. Just brings just as much interest in the area of modern as well as vintage. He a knowledgeable, nice guy, who has a great presence behind the mic. Give him a listen…

   Check out his show on these various platforms:

I Am Your Father

   This is playing on Netflix. It’s a great tribute to Dave Prowse, the man who played Darth Vader. The documentary goes into why Lucasfilm has had issues with Dave. There is a nice scene that Dave films, that isn’t shown, as sort of a moment of closure. Watch the film, and enjoy it for yourself.
