Pin-Up of the Day- Boushh!

Boushh by Taylor Lymbery
 Sitting in the theater back in 1983 is me as a kid looking at Boushh and saying, "Cool". Why? Because this character's armor is fantastic! I was completely shocked when I discovered that it was actually Leia in the costume. Sorry for the spoiler alert people, but by now you should have seen this movie. Boushh's design is another reason why I love Jabba's Return of the Jedi chapters. There is a huge variety of creatures and tech to be seen, and all of it rather different from one another. Years later when I read Shadows of the Empire (which, if you have not read this, and you are a Star Wars fan, get to it! It's great!) Boushh is mentioned a couple of times, including a mention to his demise. Princess Leia ends up with the armor which she uses a couple of times before she is discovered in it in Jabba's palace. If you want to read up on ole' Boushh, Wookiepedia has an article on him.  Now back in the day in 1983, Kenner had put out a Boushh action figure. I never found one. If I did, I'd probably still have it today; or maybe not. I am on the look out for one complete now, and if Hasbro decides to put out a vintage collection version of Leia in this suit, I might be forced (by myself) to get one. You can also see this art piece here.

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. I'll be there with a ton of new work to sell, a new issue of Xenex the Bug Man and new posters. So I'll see you there!

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

I just updated the Xenex the Bug Man website with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
