There are few things that get my nerd juices flowing more than upcoming Star Wars news. The title for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII was just announced: The Last Jedi. I was excited before and I’m even more excited now. I’ve been loving everything that Disney has done with the Star Wars property ever since they took it over (believe me… I’ve still got a Rogue One review coming). Now that we’ve got an … Continue reading
I finally got to see The Force Awakens for the second time the other night. When I wrote my opening night review I mentioned that I’d post another review after I’d seen the film again that would be spoiler filled. Here it is. SPOILER ALERT: This review will talk openly about plot points of the film. If you want to experience the film as it was intended please watch it before reading this review. I’ve heard … Continue reading
I just got home from seeing Star Wars The Force Awakens on its opening night. Before I go into anything I’ll say this. I went into this movie 100% spoiler free and as this review is being published before the film has been out for it’s full opening weekend I’ll keep it spoiler free. I’ll do another review where I talk spoilers after seeing the film again… and boy will I see this film again. … Continue reading
I’m a Star Wars nerd. Anyone who knows me knows that. I’m of that perfect age where marketing, toys and movies came together with an impressionable brain. George Lucas got his hooks into me early and has never let go. I’ve had a love / hate relationship with the prequel trilogy and George Lucas over the years here on the blog. I had Star Wars love when I wrote Thank You SPIKE – You Brought … Continue reading
A while back, I posted about my San Diego Comic Con exclusive Jabba The Hutt figure that I’d picked up to add to my Star Wars Black Series collection. I’ve been keeping up with this collection for the most part and when this year’s SDCC exclusive was announced I knew that I just had to have it. Introducing the First Order Storm Trooper from the upcoming The Force Awakens! I’m sure I’ll get some flack … Continue reading
It’s San Diego Comic Con season. Geeks have flocked from around the world to dress up, get exclusive toys and be the first to see new footage and new projects announced. Both The Walking Dead and Ash Vs. Evil Dead dropped new trailers and while Star Wars didn’t release a new trailer, they released this video which has me drooling: And as an aside… I love the fact that they’re basically taking jabs at Lucas and … Continue reading
I haven’t done a ton of toy collecting lately, but what I have picked up (and gotten completely sucked into) is The Black Series (6″ line) from Hasbro. These figures are absolutely stunning and they’ve done what no Star Wars toy has been able to do in the last 30 years… make me go all in on a SW line. The last time I had to have EVERY figure from a line was with the … Continue reading
So if you’ve been following along at home, you know that we recently had our 3rd boy. Mama was good during her pregnancy but couldn’t wait to be able to have a glass of wine. So… we brought it with us! Prosecco for Mom & Dad, sparkling juice for the Boys. Incidentally… Dude is awesome. It’s so great having 3 boys!!!
