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!”

R2-KT and The Child challenge coin


There’s a new R2-KT challenge coin on the way. This one uses a redesign of a patch. The coin displays  R@-KT on onside and the child on the other. Sales of the coin benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund. 

The patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, but the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart.

R@_KT and The Child with hearts in between them. Text sasy "hug you I can with the force."

New series Brick Sketches



LEGO has annoucned a new series LEGO Sketches, These were designed by LEGO artist Chris McVeigh. He’s been making these on his site for years. But now are an official set that you can get this summer.

These first sets are BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper, Batman and Joker. I’ll get BB-8 and Batman.

I like how how designed batman grin.

I’ve admired these since I saw the on Chris’ site. They remind me of the old Toys R US build of Captain America set my son made. I toyed around with building my own character portraits like this but never got far. I bought some plates for it and that;s about as far as I got. The Brick Sketches have a better look that this old kit. The blocky look is replaced by a more in depth look. I can’t wait for these.

Toy Photography Book on sale!


With the shutdown, comic books aren’t being delivered to stores.  Comic and their distributors are closed. To prevent fan boredom Dynamite comics is running an indiegogo champaign with on hand books. They are discounting graphic novels and comics that they have in stock so won’t be delayed waiting for publication.

One of the books is Ten Seconds Per Frame by Johnny Wu. He has some amazing Toy Photographer. The book is only $6.00. Other books include Red Sonja, The Romita Legacy, Art of Alex Ross, and mystery boxes of comics and graphic novels. They’ve already sold out of the Art of Atari book, I would have bought it if they still had any.

Supplies are limited to what is on hand and the sale ends at the end of April. Shipping is expected to start as soon as indiegogo releases the payment.
