If Lynch Gets To Talk About Trek…

I was starting to look for toys for my son for Christmas and browsing action figures at Amazon when I came across some Star Wars stuff I thought was interesting.

I’m aware that Star Wars has a million different characters offshoot books, but I’m really impressed/frightened with how deep the merchandising goes.

Check this out; it’s General Grievous from that abysmal third prequel, except that it’s not. It’s apparently what the guy looked like before he became mostly robot and got that nagging cough:


I have to admit some curiosity about the character’s origins, but this seems a bit of a reach for me.

Then there’s this Boba Fett, not as he appeared in the movies, but in his very first appearance on the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special:


Now these two, I might actually be interested in owning. They’re action figures based on the original Ralph McQuarrie art for the movies:



Neat huh?

Cartoon in Forbes

I’ve got a cartoon in the big 400 Richest People issue of Forbes! (Here’s the cartoon.)

Cooler still, I’m on the cover. See me?


No? Look closer…


OK, so that’s not really me per se, but I am in the 400 Richest People issue and my last name is on the cover; allow me the fantasy for a while.
