IG-88: The Dancing Robot (featuring some familiar
Filmmaker Anton Bogaty created an excellent and
hilarious animated piece called "IG-88: The Dancing Robot".
Not only did it win the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge Best Animated
Movie award for 2007, but it also features a number of cameo appearances
by characters from The Star Wars Holiday Special! See the still
shots below for a look at which characters appear in the film,
and do yourself a favor and check out the film itself at the Atom
Films site here.
Jeff Starbird... or is that Jefferson Starship?
Zutton (aka Snaggletooth) joins the dance!
That's Krelman over there, and an Imperial
Guard watching Jefferson--er, Jeff Starbird!
And now we present... The Great Zorbak!

Custom Chewbacca Family Figures by Alex Newborn
Custom Chewie's Family
[These are] three custom vintage Kenner action figures I did
right after seeing a magazine article on kit-bashed prototypes
of Chewbacca's family. Following the same methods employed by
Kenner artists, Malla and Itchy were made from modifying actual
Chewbacca production figures, and Lumpy was based off a Fisher-Price
Adventure People little boy figure. (I didn't have a spare, so
thanks go to Louis Inman for making a casting for me.) Although
I made a handful of subtle alterations for my own aesthetic satisfaction,
such as a drybrush approach to Itchy's facial fur, and the omission
of a step involving slicing a bit of height off the bottom of
Malla's feet, these are very close to what Kenner's sample pieces

Shawn loves the Holiday Special, and he created his own techno
remix of Gormaanda's cooking segment just to prove it! Listen
carefully and see if you can recognize what song the track turns

'A Very Wookiee Life Day'
'Twas the night before Life Day, when all through the tree
Not a Wookiee was joyful, not even Lumpy;
Malla had made a fine meal with great care,
In hopes that Chewbacca soon would be there;
Saun Dann brought gifts and good cheer for the morrow,
But this brief glint of happiness turned back to sorrow,
The Empire had set up a blockade of sorts,
In search of a ship that eluded their forts,
The Falcon had breached the restricted airspace,
But the Empire's searching could turn up no trace.
While Itchy found thrills in his pleasure machine,
Han and Chewbacca could nowhere be seen.
Back at Mos Eisley, Ackmena led song,
As Star Wars fans struggled to watch farther on.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
The Imperials left and Chewbacca drew near!
As Chewie stood proud in his fancy red dress,
Leia started to sing, a song sure to impress.
What with Kenner commercial, and Boba cartoon,
Another Life Day had ended, not a moment too soon!
