Space Wars figures

5 Awesome things on Ebay this week

Monster Squad Frankenstein– Admittadly, i prefer the TV series “The Monster Squad” over the 1980s movie but everytime I do a search I do run into these custom Mego-esque figures done by the amazing Distinctive Dummies and they give me pause. Cliffhangers TV Week Cover– Remember the TV series “Cliffhangers” featuring three stories that were […]

RC R2

I had the remote control R2D2 as a kid, it stopped walking pretty quickly but it was still good to use with the 12″ dolls so I was content, also it still made it’s beeping noise much to mother’s chagrin. She once threatened to throw it out of the station wagon! We have a PodCast! […]

MPC Star Wars models will always remind me of a funny story, well if you’re my dad, you wouldn’t laugh. You see in third grade, this cool kid named Andrew (that’s his real name, cause I doubt he’s a reader)  brought in his fully assembled C3-PO model and somehow, i became “salesman of the year” […]

A bedroom in a galaxy far, far away

I simply can’t look at Star Wars bedspreads and not be happy, it’s Pavlovian.  Unless said bedspread has Ewoks on it, of course, then I fly into a murderous rage for days shouting “CLEANING WOMAN!” the whole time at the top of my lungs. I should probably speak to somebody about that. Check out our […]
