Wampa Cave / STAR WARS CELEBRATION ORLANDO 2017
« on: May 04, 2016, 12:33:27 PM »
Star Wars Celebration will be held in Orlando April 13-16th, 2017.

I attended Celebration V and VI in Orlando but they were August 12-15 and
August 16-19 so the dates were better for the kids.   

I would like to go - but the dates may keep me from going.

These dates will be Easter Weekend.   

I have never been able to figure out the Americans.  They put so much emphasis on Thanks Giving Day - their date - but none on the death of Jesus Christ.   When I worked for a company based in Minnesota - most of the employees - I talked to felt the same way.

Wampa Cave / Christmas Morning 1978
« on: April 25, 2016, 11:22:58 PM »
I was wondering if anyone else can remember what they got on this very special Star Wars Christmas.   Santa brought 11 of the original 12 - the only one missing was the Jawa.  There was also an X-WING and a TIE FIGHTER and Landspeeder and of the Holy Grail of all Star Wars toys that Christmas - the Death Star Playstation .    I was 9 years old and if I had a time machine I would love to watch me open everything up - but this time I would tell my younger self to keep the packaging and run out and buy every carded vinyl cape Jawa I can find !   I also got the Star Wars board game and a Star War puzzle.     :party0053: :party0007: :party0053:

OK the topic title was a little over kill.   But I am trying to make sure people do not judge this movie by what the critics are saying about it.   For me my childhood was made up of Star Wars & Indiana Jones on the big screen and Battle Star Galactica and Justice League of America on the little screen.     So I was really looking forward to Batman vs. Superman and then I read all the critic reviews and was really disappointed.  How could WB screw this up?
Well today my family went to the 3:30 pm IMAX non-3D movie and that was definitely the way to see this movie - it screams BIG BIG screen.  And I have to say in my opinion it is better than any of the Marvel movies and easily better than The Force Awakens.  It is a great movie.  Superman gives you the emotional stuff and Batman is fantastic .  And yes who wouldn't be worried about Ben taking on the role of Batman but he pulls it off.  And Wonder Woman is amazing.  The scene when she laughs at the danger she is facing was a big hit with my wife and daughter.  And the movie tie-in the stuff we have been hearing on TV with meta humans was great, there is Aquaman and the Flash.   And as far as the screen play or script not making sense I was never lost - it all made sense.  Except there was one of the Meta Humans I did not know who he was - the one where he is half a human body and then something happens and he screams , I am not sure who this super hero is?   This is a 60% Batman movie, 30% Superman, 5% Lex and 5% Wonder Woman Movie.    I thought LEX was great. And they set up everything for the Dawn of the Justice League.   My advice is don't miss this movie on the big screen.  You will be disappointed if you listen to the critics and miss this great movie.

Other Movies - Music - TV Entertainment / FIREFLY - BEST TV SHOW EVER
« on: January 25, 2016, 12:05:26 PM »
FIREFLY - is amazing.  Just finished watching all 14 episodes and the movie.  I am now a big Fan.   

For those of you who have never seen the TV show - think of it as the Adventures of Han Solo and his amazing Crew.   

After watching it I can understand why it developed a strong fan base.    This is one of those shows that should of been given a better chance to develop it's fan base.

If you have not seen it - I would highly recommend it.

Wampa Cave / The End of Modern Day Star Wars Collectables
« on: December 30, 2015, 09:34:30 AM »
When I look at the quality of modern day toys whether it be the actual toy or the paint job, this combined with the cost of the items.  I wonder if the end of modern Star Wars collecting is near.  The quality of what Hasbro is putting out is a lot lower then what it has been over the past 10 years.   Do you think we will every see toys like the BMF again?  For me I thought Hasbro made a shift in the way they developed and sold Star Wars toys after their success in selling Angry Bird Star Wars toys.  Make it cheap and sell it for as much as you can get.   I also wonder if Hasbro has done the modern day collector a favour.  The toys  that were bought over the last 10 years are hirer quality and were available for less money. So based on what current Star Wars items are selling for - I would think most collectors would be able to sell their collections and get their money out of them.  I mean most of the figures on sale over the last 10 years were $5 - $10 for SA well packaged figures vs. Walmart $15.

Scout Report / 6" Black Series Amazon Exclusive
« on: December 04, 2015, 02:27:34 PM »
I was on amazon the other day and noticed that they had an Amazon exclusive set of 4 stormtroopers on sale.   It was $105 CDN.  I made an impulse purchase -it's Christmas!  and got a set.   I am glad I did, it is a nice set with 4 figures in one big fold out box , a Phase one Clone Trooper Commander, Phase II Clone Trooper,  Battle Damaged Imperial Stormtrooper and a First Order Stormtrooper Officer.    If the price does not bother you, I think it is a good set to pick up.  I believe the only place you can get it is on Amazon.ca .    I bought mine directly from Amazon.

May the 4th be with you as you wait for your Force Friday on September the 4th.  With Disney at the helm we will slowly take over all all the days on the calendar !   Happy Admiral Akbar day on on October the 8th is I think the next one they are planning ! :)

NBC just reported that George Lucas has stated he gave Disney his ideas for Star Wars 7 - but they did not use any of them.   Just wondering what you guys thought about this - good or bad?

On January 27, 2015 - it will be 10 years I have been on Snowtroopers.   Got me wondering how long everyone else has been on Snowtroopers.ca ?

Star Wars Art / Dave Dorman Rejected for Celebration 7
« on: November 18, 2014, 06:01:22 PM »
Celebration 7 ART SHOW: Dave Dorman Rejected by Celebration 7 Art Judges.

I thought you guys might be interested in the email I got from Dave Dorman.   Interesting read in order to understand how things work to get your art work in a Celebration.   Maybe Dave should have put Mickey Mouse ears on Darth Vader !!!

Here is his email:

Well, now that Lucasfilm has announced the artists selected for the SW Celebration 7 Art Show, I can publicly confirm that I was not selected to participate this year. It is with great sadness and disappointment that I am now announcing this, but the judging has been made, and there is no reversing that.

The judging was done differently this year, asking for comps of the art proposed, then submitted anonymously to be judged. There was no respect for the reputation or the years of good will put in by any artist--just the comp, rough, or finished art submitted for approval.

So...here was my piece--a color rough featuring Vader continuing to pursue the genocide of the Jedi after Order 66. I guess I missed the mark in idea... or perhaps not doing a more finished rough..it's not EU... ties directly into the gap between EP3 and 4...

The Path Not Taken: Rejected Dave Dorman Star Wars Celebration Concept Art
The Path Not Taken: Rejected Dave Dorman Star Wars Celebration Concept Art

I don't know. And because the judged submissions were anonymous and a one shot deal, I will never know.

What I do know is that I will not have a print available this year at Celebration, nor will I be attending Celebration to support it.

I thank all you who have supported me through the 6 Celebrations (including Europe) where I sold out of prints, and the first Celebration in Denver, which I attended only as a fan. I would like to thank the 501st for their support and helping unselfishly when called to pose for me.

I hope to see you all at Celebration 8...if the Force is still with me.

Take care,

Wampa Cave / Sideshow Collecting
« on: December 16, 2013, 09:24:20 AM »
Hello

I am looking for advice on purchasing a Sideshow Hoth Luke and Tauntaun.   I have never purchased from Sideshow and was wondering what was the best way to order from them?  Direct or is there a better way to get them at a lower price?  Do they have a membership, that give you a discounted price like GG?  Is the a Hoth Luke and Tauntaun a good SS product?

Thanks for any advice you can offer.
