Pin-up of the Day- Han Solo (in Endor Trench Coat)

Han Solo art by Taylor Lymbery
I have wondered for a while why I had not done a pin-up of Han Solo until recently. I'm not sure why. Han Solo is one of the coolest characters in the Star Wars universe! No seriously! So here he is, Han Solo in his Endor Jacket! I chose to do this version of Han Solo for the color of the card stock. This was a commission for a young lady by the name of Candace. She bought my 3PO(yellow cardstock), R2(blue cardstock), and Chewie(brown cardstock). To not have a repeating color within the four pieces, I chose the green and played off of his camo jacket that he wore while the rebels are on the forest moon of Endor. I think he turned out great! Out of all of the vintage Kenner Han Solo action figures, I think I like this Trench Coat version the best! It's a toss up between this version and the Hoth version Han Solo action figure. Action Figure of the Day has some pretty convincing reasons on why the Trench Coat version of Han might be the best.  I never owned a Han Solo action figure from the old Kenner line. I'd like to change that one day, but we'll see. By the way, did you know that the Chewbacca action figure can also wear Han Solo's Endor trench coat? I was going through my friend, Jeff's, vintage collection, when I found Chewie wearing Han's Jacket. I'm not sure why he was in it,  but he looks good in it. You can also see this art piece here

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! 

The Xenex the Bug Man website is updated 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. 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!
