Vintage Kenner Figures in Toy Story 4

This past weekend, Toy Story 4 made its debut and so did the animated versions of two of our favorite vintage Kenner action figures! As we discussed earlier this year, Walrus Man and Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi from 1978 are featured in the latest addition to the Toy Story franchise.

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020

UPDATE:  All 4-Day pass sold out in about an hour! Star Wars fever is high! Even though Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is 432 days away, tickets for the Star Wars mega-con went on sale this morning.

After 41 minutes in a virtual queue (with a student assigned each period to watch my computer as it is the last day of school) we were able to make our purchase. In shock to no one, the $900 Jedi Master [...]
