(In)Definite Article #3: The Curious Case of Toys “R” Us and the Traveling Giraffe

Dying is easy. Comebacks are hard. And modern public relations are weird.

Solo Toys!

The Walmart near me had Solo toys a day before the soft release date! Emphasis on had. They were pretty wiped out already. But I did manage to find some toys I found pretty interesting…

(In)Definite Article #1: Collecting, Past, Present, and Future

Collecting is all about value. But what does it mean to value something? Is something inherently valuable because of what it is, or what it represents to the collector? Questionably an article and not canon at all, read on to see some recent reflections I had on my collection habit. Continue reading “(In)Definite Article #1: Collecting, Past, Present, and Future”

Happy Holidays and Lego Leaks!

It’s that time already, isn’t it? Happy holidays, merry Christmas, happy Life Day, and merry Sithmas! Enjoy the holidays, unless of course your service to our Emperor dictates other pertinent duties. For my fellow collectors out there – may your Lego kits be plentiful, your figures’ paint apps look clean, and may your blasters and accessories not be bent out of shape.

Update on the Studio 

I haven’t been around as much as I’d like to be, but I plan to change that soon. My wife and I are moved in and the construction of my studio is underway! But that means a lot of clutter and boxes that still need to be shaped into my dream workspace and Star Wars haven. It’s getting there, slowly but surely, and I’m keeping a backlog of books and toys I want to talk about. Once I have a space to take pictures set up, the figure reviews will come along. Here’s just a few things I’ve picked up since the move that I plan to share some more thoughts on soon:

  • Phasma – So different and strange, and who knows how much of this will be expanded on in future films and novels. 
  • Darth Vader (Volume One, Marvel Comics) – So much good to say about the Vader comics. Couldn’t get enough!
  • Doctor Aphra (Marvel Comics) – Aphra is awesome. Great new character and fun books. 
  • Leia: Princess of Alderaan – Still reading this one. I like it but how does it stack up against Claudia Grey’s previous Star Wars novels?
  • And of course, the Black Series! I’ve picked up Luke, Rey, and the Stormtrooper Executioner from The Last Jedi as well as Commander Gree , Grand Admiral Thrawn, and the Inferno Squad Agent.

So there’s much to do and I’ll get to it soon. Just have to finish building that throne room. Er I mean studio space. More to come soon! I thank all my readers for being patient while I get things in real life in order first.
