Last fall when Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, I saw a retweet from Comic artist Cat Staggs that a fellow comic artist friend of hers JK Woodard had lost his home in the floods and was taking commissions/donations to help him move and get a new apartment.
I donated enough that I was able to get a black and white hand drawn 8×10 piece w/ 2 figures of my choice. I selected Anakin and Padme since his site showed that he had done some STAR WARS stuff in the past. All I asked was no Padme choking, make something nice. Above is the piece that finally arrived! I can’t think of anything nicer or lovelier than a wedding piece from Attack of the Clones! Eventually that will get framed and put on my wall. I just love the piece!
This week my gorgeous hand made Bespin Leia costume showed up from Stardust dolls! I’ve been desperately wanting a 12″ Bespin Leia ever since I learned that Kenner killed the doll line for The Empire Strikes Back and had planned a doll wearing this outfit. See photo HERE of unproduced prototype.
My Leia doll was a former Portrait Edition Yavin Celebration doll that had her ponytail chopped off. I rerooted her and planned on having her for this outfit. I found out tonight the hair I had used is a bit tough to work with, so her hair styling leaves a lot to be desired – please don’t judge me :p Sometime down the road I’ll work on replacing the doll with another, but until then enjoy the photos above!
In my move I unearthed one of my favorite custom 12″ figures – it’s my Endor Celebration Princess Leia doll!
This Leia was a collaboration between myself and Samantha Peterson, who sadly is now deceased. She used to run The Queen’s Tailor and made many Star Wars collectors happy over the years making lovely custom Star Wars dolls.
For this collaboration I took a vintage Princess Leia who had much of her hair ripped out and gave her a full head reroot w/ 2 tone crimped brown hair and sent her off to Sam for the outfit.
Not only did Samantha make a screen accurate costume, but she completed the doll by braiding her hair w/ leather ribbons and she made perfect sandals to complete the outfit!
Before Hasbro made the Portrait Leia, the Kenner Leia was always my favorite face sculpt of Carrie Fisher; for pure nostalgia purposes she remains so. I’m happy to have her back in my collection and on display!
Here are some more updated photos of the shrine in progress!
I am now 100% moved to my new house – yay! The shrine is in chaos that I’m slowly bringing together. I stayed up late last night and put a few shelves together – 3 are mostly finished the others are still in progress – but I figured I’d share some photos with you!
A bunch of my assorted 12″ figures/dolls were in storage so they’re now coming out to play! Enjoy!
Collider talked to Bad Robot Producer Bryan Burk about Ep VII – here’s a bit about it:
With Disney pushing hard for a 2015 release for Star Wars: Episode VII, production on the film needs to get underway sooner rather than later. Steve asked Burk if they know when and where they might be filming, and while he noted that it’s still early in the development process, a 2014 start-date seems likely:
“We’re progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year, and the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues. As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.”
