Pin-up of the Day- Lando Calrissian as Skiff Guard!

Lando in Skiff disguise by Taylor Lymbery
When I was a kid, and I was watching Return of the Jedi in the theater, I remember not knowing who the guy was in the helmet, and was later confused on why Lando Calrissian was on a skiff during the action scene. Obviously I missed the big reveal of Lando pulling done the mask portion of his helmet to expose to the audience who he truly was. Let's just say that I have some trouble not being distracted at times. I would like to say that I was distracted by the action figure of Lando in the Skiff Guard outfit, but I know that I did not have that figure yet. I did get a Lando in Skiff Guard disguiseback in 1983. I loved him! I still have him to this day, but I recently replaced the helmet and vibroaxe. Like most of the action figures of the characters from Jabba's palace scene, I rank this version of Lando up high on my list of favorites! This is definitely my favorite version of Lando of all time. One reason is due to the fact that he is from the Jabba section of the Return of the Jedi film, the other is that he doesn't have a cape! I don't care much for the cape on Lando Calrissian. The one thing that I think would have made this version of Lando better would have been adding his signature communicator watch to his outfit! That would be totally stellar! You can also see this art piece here.

Cortical Stimulator design by Taylor Lymbery

 I could almost make a drinking game on how many times the mighty cortical stimulator has saved someone's life! Go see this design on here!

Oh, Chakotay! design by Taylor Lymbery
No one can melt Captain Janeway's heart away like this Maquis hunk, leaving Katherine only saying, "Oh, Chakotay!" Go see this design on here!

Child's Play design by Taylor Lymbery
It seems silly, but every kid that liked star trek that I knew, wanted an Enterprise to ride around on. It would've been awesome. Go see this design on here!

Space Anomaly design by Taylor Lymbery
There was one episode in the Voyager series where Neelix asked why Voyager had to go and inspect every anomaly it came across. Shortly after, the ship was trapped in a sub-space hole in a nebula; and then after that, about to be devoured by a living ion cloud monster; and then after that... You get the picture. Go see this design on here!

Tricorder Theatre
I've read that the scene in Generations where Data is using his tricorder as a puppet, is thought to be one of the worst jokes in the Star Trek universe. When I saw this scene in the theater, I laughed so hard I had soda shoot through my nostrils! Needless to say, I still find it kind of funny. Don't judge... Go see this design on 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:
