When I was young in 1986 (as opposed to young today), Muppet Magazine came out with this cartoon. I thought this was a one-time issue. It was also the issue where I learned about the Fraggles. This cartoon is interesting because it discusses summer movie battles. It also reveals just what movies were showing during ...
Since our crew is currently at Phoenix ComicCon, we thought we would give you guys some Star Wars jokes to keep you busy with. Q: What do you call stormtroopers playing Monopoly? A: Game of Clones Q: Why did the angry Jedi cross the road? A: To get to the Dark Side. Q: When did ...
For 10,000, you can have a battle pod, and pick C3PO or Vader and your name in the credits. I remember seeing the pods for Battlemech at OwlCon and other cons around the Houston TX area. Something tells me this might be more fun. Even if you just get the 35K model, I imagine the ...
We spent the weekend in Piscataway NJ at the Steampunk Worlds Fair. It really was one of the greatest shows ever. President Obama spoke at the complex adjacent to where the Fair was being held so all the entrances to get into our complex were blocked off. We still found a way to pull off ...
We were invited to discuss Star Wars on the local public radio station, KUHF, in Houston Texas. This happened to coincide with the “May the Fourth Be With You” weekend, but the segment was also being done in response to the release of the Ultimate Star Wars book, which has just come out. They didn’t ...

The Dealer’s Room is one portion of every Con that everyone should at least make one trip to visit. It is the one place where you can find some REALLY COOL STUFF that you just can’t pick up off the shelves at your local mall or Wal*Mart, and sometimes comic book and game shops in attendance have [...]

“The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and ...
“I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others ...

We don’t often read the New York Post, but if there are Samurai battling with lightsabers to remind us of the kendo beginnings of Lightsaber battles, we are not going to turn the page. To be honest, the kendo battle seems appropriate. Lucas based his first lightsaber battle on samurai kendo. And Darth Vader is wearing ...
I have some freaking awesome cousins. The two oldest are doctors now, but back when we were kids, they were everything I wanted to be. They could water ski and they designed a car and they were into Dungeons and Dragons. When we went over to visit, after dinner, when it was dark, they totally ...

I have gone to cons for the last 13 years, or maybe it is twelve…it is a lot either way. Anyway, I have colored my hair multiple colors and I have worn the weirdest clothing from tights and cloaks to hockey jerseys and even wore fringe this millennium. But I have never done cosplay. I […]

Can you imagine having a rancor as a mount? It would be like riding the Incredible Hulk! Here’s a cartoon showing the Rancor Keeper and his buddy from ROTJ – with a happy ending! But seriously, look at the way this creature is built, the jaw structure. He can bite into something even bigger than ...
