SDCC Exclusive First Order Storm Trooper

SDCC First Order Stormtrooper (8)

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

The Force Awakens And My Anticipation Grows

The Force Awakens

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

Star Wars Black Series – Jabba’s Throne Room

Jabba's Throme Room (5)

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

Wine In The Maternity Ward? You Know It!

At The Hospital For LLB

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!!!

A New Link In The Chain

Mom, Link & Dad

It’s been quite some time since I’ve added something to the blog here, but I assure you I’ve got a good reason.  See, while I haven’t added anything to the site, we’ve been busy adding to our family.  Our little man came into the world on May 4th, 2014!  Yep… he’s a “Star Wars Baby” being born on May the 4th.  How appropriate is that with Dad’s love of Star Wars? It was an interesting … Continue reading

Episode II: Attack Of G & C

The Boys Watching Attack Of The Clones

If you know me even a little bit, you know that Star Wars is a big part of my childhood.  It’s partially the reason that my friends know me as Chewie and regardless of the sham that the franchise has become, I feel it’s my duty as a parent to expose my children to the films. So… when the Wife goes out for an evening and it’s G, C and I holding down the fort, … Continue reading

Facebook Pet Peeves

Facebook Like Button

Facebook.  It’s a social networking site.  I’m not going to bother explaining it any further than that cause if you don’t know what it is, you probably won’t be able to understand the explanation.  I’ve talked many times about Facebook.  I’ve said some good things.  I’ve said some bad things.  I’ve wondered how they do some of the things that they do.  Today I’m back with a couple of Facebook pet peeves.  If you’re a … Continue reading

The Phantom Menace In 3D – I Hope It Fails Miserably

The Phantom Menace In 3D

I’ll warn you in advance… I have a feeling this is going to turn into a bit of a rant.  I have a feeling that I may insult a few folks and for that I apologize, but quite frankly I’m at the end of my rope.  Don’t say I didn’t give you a head’s up. My respect for George Lucas is officially gone.  The man that created what I consider to be the greatest series … Continue reading

Yearly Trip To Indy

Pip & Chewie At Nickel Plate

I recently made my yearly trek back to the Hoosier State to see brother Pip.  As always the weekend went way to quick, but it was absolutely awesome to see Pip and Lauren again.  I look forward to this trip every year and it had been a while since I’ve made the journey.  Last year, instead of going to Indy for a weekend, we made the trip to Bloomington to be with Matt & Lauren … Continue reading
