Han Shot First…

… and that’s why he’s in such big trouble 😉

wanted

   This came about when I came up with an off the cuff hashtag, #GreedoWasMurdered, in response to a friend’s “#HanShotFirst” tweet. This could have been a thing, from a certain point of view.

   I could have done better, or even signed it, but I was having too much fun to take it slow. I lowered Han’s brow a bit and adjusted Greedo’s mouth along with enlarging his eyes. Fun stuff ^_^

Happy Force Friday

000b0e00-630   [via StarWars.com] September 4, a.k.a. Force Friday — the highly-anticipated midnight release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, collectibles, gadgets, and more — is almost here. It will be the world’s first chance to own official product celebrating the next installment of the Star Wars saga, and several retailers have, to quote Admiral Piett, “something special planned.” Check out StarWars.com’s special event guide below and may the Force (Friday) be with you!

Now THIS IS Star Wars!

“Chewie, we’re home.” Indeed.

It’s 1977, and I am Seven again.

Just for that feeling, thank you I do, J.J. 🙂

Geeky Decoupage Project for the Day.

   My wife and I had some old comics that were more fit for recycling than collecting. We recently discovered @JenniferLanda’s video on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqe2-hndN8I, and it inspired us. I found some old comic book advertisements in some 1978 comics, placed them on a an 8×10 mini mounted canvas and came up with a fun Decoupage. My wife took an over-sized issue of Star Wars #1 (NOT my near mint copy!) and came up with a 20¼x16¼ collage, soon to be decoupaged, piece of awesomeness. For a while we’ve really wanted to get into crafting more stuff for our Etsy shop ,https://www.etsy.com/shop/DarranAndMistysShop, and this just seemed like the perfect addition. It allows us to rescue/re-use/re-purpose old comics, plus gives us another outlet to exercise our creativity.

   Here are a few that we have done so far:

My Vintage Kenner Millenium Falcon on Ebay!

My Vintage Kenner Millenium Falcon on Ebay!

   My vintage, Kenner (1979) Millenium Falcon is on the block and has one day, six hours left. The bidding is low because I only started her out at $14.99 to create some buzz. The shipping is set at $18.13 because that is exactly what it would cost us to ship it, according to Stamps.com.

  • The majority of the decals are there.
  • The landing struts are all stable.
  • The Jedi Remote Ball is included.
  • The original instruction sheet is included.
  • The Cockpit “hinge” is still in one piece and shows no cracking.
  • Original Box.

   I have been dragging my feet on selling the piece but our upcoming move demands that I do so. So here she is, in all of her glory. She will be missed. We’ll always have the Kessel Run, sweetheart.

The One Thing I want from Comic-Con…

STAR WARS HASBRO 2013 SDCC BOBA FETT BLACK SERIES EXCLUSIVE FIGURE

   This is a 6-inch Boba Fett action figure from the new Star Wars Black Series. He comes with two weapons,  jet pack AND Han Solo frozen in Carbonite. Hasbro is supposed to be offering these for a limited time on their website after the event ends so I hope that I can get one for under $50.00!

Update: 0917 hrs 18.July.2013

   Check out some of the offers already up on eBay for these. I didn’t pay any attention to the “pre-release” bidding over the last few months. I’ll only pre-order stuff from an actual store that will guarantee that it will have the items in stock. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?...
