Back to the front! This photo is actually from April ’09 and was among the very first taken for this website. I just noticed it among some archives and was surprised how much more I like it than the photo that I originally chose to post. Feels a little funny though — this is the first time I’ve posted a photo of something other than vintage Star Wars toys since November ’09.

Ever on the run, the rebel band in the Star Wars trilogy typically went with a blast and scamper approach to confronting the enemy. But what if they’d had a strict policy of taking prisoners of war? Total drag!

Modern Star Wars action figures do have their benefits. Accurate sculpts, articulating limbs, better weapons… trust me, I get it. This Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Original Trilogy Collection is a near bullseye. Everything perfect except for the ridiculously roomy cloak. And with two interchangeable head sculpts, the Ralph McQuarrie Concept Darth Vader is just all kinds of cool.

Although the Jawa action figure was among the original 12 released by Kenner in early 1978, it was a few months or more after the initial wave that he (along with the dynamite ‘Sandpeople’ figure) showed up on my local toy shelves. I can still remember my happy surprise to find that Kenner wasn’t finished making new Star Wars toys! Time would show of course that they were really just getting started.

Ready to roll on stop motion animating scene 323 for the Star Wars Uncut project. This one looks to be tougher than the first. And I’ll be straight up with you, that one was a bitch.

A glimpse of the set I’ve put together for the first of three scenes I’ll be filming for the Star Wars Uncut Project. Going with stop-motion animation. Only one day into it and already I can see that I’m in for a daunting, rewarding, and educational experience. Huge thanks to Whit at DBSW for his help and inspiration. Because this will take up every last lick of my free time for the next 10 days, and because I’m taking some vacation, and because we’re moving on September 1… this blog is going on hiatus until early September. Mata yo tomodachi!

Quick question: could it possibly get better than a blaster-toting Star Wars action figure made in the likeness of Ralph McQuarrie?

Yes it could, but not by much.
