Blaster is Coming

“How may I serve you gentlemen?”  Robby said it best in Forbidden Planet and if we had it our way we definitely want him to get us that way cool ray gun that the United Planets crew used.  We’ll keep working on that with Morbius, until then you get the rare chance to own one without going to Altair IV.  Check it out here.

There’s also some new Trek and Vader drinking vessels for traveling on your vessel.  See how I did that?  Enjoy.

New Arrivals

FYI, we’re switching soon to a new layout for our site which is pretty exciting, but has slowed our process for adding new items.  That said I’ve snuck some in under the radar.  Most are in the New Products section, but here’s a highlight-

Featured are tons of prop license plates from your favorite TV shows and film.  Wands from a certain wizarding world.  Cool wallets and hats from SHIELD and HYDRA.  Even some Assassin’s Creed and Forbidden Planet stuff.  Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Vikings make an appearance too.  We hope you have as much fun buying as we do bringing it to you.

If Agent Coulson can pass along his ID just for your use, it would be rude to decline don’t you think?

Lastly, we do our very best to keep everything in stock (nearly 90%).  The real world functions a bit differently though and we appreciate your patience on the rare occasion an item is not immediately available.

SD Comic Con 2015

ComicCon 2015

So, you want to go? Then keep February 21st open on your calendar. 9 AM PST to be more exact as that’s when online registration opens for the 2015 edition. Running from July 8-12 you’ll see all the best and brightest from the entertainment industry crash in one place. Quite a sight actually.

The landing page says you’ll need to be in the “room” before registration starts and you need to be enrolled with their Member ID system as well. Which means you need to prep really early and jump through some hoops. I think there was something about your first born in there too.

Prices range from $35 to $50 for single day passes, with discounts going to children, senior’s and military.

Replica License Plates

We’re proud to be working with an American company making things in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. out of high quality materials. The plates are even pressed with a plate maker from an old prison! The addition of prop replica license plates is a cool category we hadn’t hit on before. They’re really a talking point in a display or on a vehicle and even better when you can get to a convention and get one of the related actors to sign them. Really unique.

Replica License Plates

We’ve added plates from 23 different TV shows and movies. Still, if you don’t see one you like let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

The Force Awakens

How cool is that? As much as we loved saying Episode VII and who didn’t? OK, me for one, it now has an official and very cool title.

I guess since the Force is a living energy source it can snooze every now and then. It took JJ Abrams and one of our favorite ensemble casts to shake it awake. Can’t wait to see what the Force looks like with bedhead. I for one think it will look great.

Bueller, Bueller…

Throw me a bone here, anyone out there? Drop me a comment every now and then, but only if it’s stellar and about me. Well, anything cool really.

Incoming!!!!

Looking forward to Nov. we’ve got some Frozen stuff on the way, plus additional Firefly items, maybe even a nod to Doctor Who…don’t blink.

So come back often if you don’t see something tempting and comply, er, I mean visit us regularly to check things out. Vader is kind of persuasive.
