“May the 4th” AKA “Star Wars Day” will be upon us very soon, and the TOYSREVIL blog (AND on #starwarsallday, of course) continues to celebrate the event with doodle challenges #drawajawa and #drawawookie!

Folks can either email in your submissions (to "toysreviler [at] gmail.com), or hashtag it on Instagram (don't forget to let me know if it's cool if I could embed your image on my blog, thanks!)

Here’s a couple lil’slideshow videos I did of submissions from over 3 years back, as a reference for folks interested to participate:)


*This is NOT a contest to win any prizes tho (unless sponsors want to partner me up? :p), but just a fun way to celebrate your love for Star Wars, or to promote yourselves and your ART on my blog :)

'Where The Wookiee Things Are' by Cracked Hatchet / WheresChappell (for #ToyConUK - April 29-30)


UK-based artist Ian Chappell AKA “Cracked Hatchet” (TAGGED #onTOYSREVIL) will be showcasing a line-up of resin awesomeness he had sculpted and hand-painted, at the coming ToyCon UK (April 29-30, 2017 - look for Booth #2) - chief of which is “WHERE THE WOOKIE THINGS ARE” - featuring a mash-up between Boba Fett and a Wookie, by-way of a lurking monster from “Where The Wild Things Are”!

And while all 4 colorways (Proto/Jedi/Kenner/Holiday) will be on display at ToyConUK, they will not be for sale, except for the "EMPIRE" Edition (see pic at bottom of post) - limited to only 5pcs! (*Price unknown).


As always the color choices are in a muted palette of earthy tones, and frankly gives it a stronger sense of "gravitas" that lifts the original sculpts (by Ian himself) into a realm of "designed" art piece, IMHO.

Here are a few more snaps of the editions, viewable from his Instagram @whereschappell! No further product nor price details revealed as yet tho,

A Tribute To Carrie Fisher (for 40th Anniversary at Star Wars Celebration 2017)


Featured at the 40th anniversary panel of the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, was this Video Tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, which frankly left me a teary eyed last night before I went to bed …

For the uninitiated, Carrie Fisher played “Princess Leia” in Star Wars.

And while it has been previously confirmed that Carrie Fisher will be in Episode 8, “General Leia” will not be in Episode 9. LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy mentioned;
“We finished everything in VIII and Carrie is absolutely phenomenal in the movie, and we’re so happy we were able to complete filming in the summer. Unfortunately, Carrie passed away [at a] time when we were well underway with Episode IX in our thoughts. We had not written a script yet. But we’ve regrouped. We started over again in January. Sadly, Carrie will not be in IX.” (Quoted on lrmonline.com)
