Talk like a Pirate Day


You best start believing in Pirate holidays. You’re in one. Happy Talk like a pirate day!


Star Wars Science Xcavations Skulls!


I recently found these at Wal-mart. They are part of the Star Wars Science line. The crates are blind boxes that contain the skulls of various creatures from the Star Wars Universe.

Star Wars Science Xcavations Creature Crates one wrapped one unwrapped

 

The crates are filled with sand. You dig the bones out and build the skull. The sand is dense and clumps together. It might be kinetic sand. It’s not regular toy sand. They didn’t include a digging tool so I used a plastic spoon. Eventually I just turned the crate upside down and dumped it into an old plastic lunch meat package.

I hate sand’ ‘it’s course and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere’

Once all the parts are out you can build the skull. The first set I opened was a Hutt. It looks cool but took some wiggling to get the jaw to pop into place.

Series 1 includes Hutt, Trandoshan, Gamorrean, Rodian, Monkey-lizard, and Zabrak.

The Science part of these toys is that they based these skulls on actual animal skulls. The Xcavation set includes a pamphlet with what earth animals on which they based their designs. It has scientific names and habitat information. They used ape and board skulls to design the Gamorrean skull. And Alligator and Iguana skulls for references for the Trandashan skull. Which was the second package I opened. Boosk the Bounty Hunter was a Trandashan.

You can see a bit of the red sand still attached to the skull. Preview photos from the toy fair show certain skulls are packed in certain colored sand.

I had a bit of a preview of these kits a while back. If you remember my BB-8 behind a crate post from earlier in the month you’ve seen the crates. I just now have time to do a proper write-up on them.

These sets are cool and a fun little activity. They come with a Skull, toy sand, and a crate for around $4.99. Uncle Milton also makes a Rancor and Tauntaun Skelton models. I haven’t seen them in stores yet.

Independence Day speech clip and text!


My traditional posting of one of film’s great speeches with text so you can recite it.

President Whitmore’s Speech From Independence Day

“Good morning. Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. and should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive.’ Today we celebrate our independence day!”
