Stormtrooper on a Stormy Day

No comic books today due to the Memorial Day holiday Monday. So, tomorrow I will head over to Castle P. and probably end up running into my arch-nemesis Capt. Osmotic. . .

Yes, here I am drinking coffee and playing with the first ever woman Stormtrooper from the Joker Squad six-pack released by Entertainment Earth (currently sold out). I bought Jes Gistang here, on e-bay awhile back without her comrades. Oh the humanity! Well, I just wanted her.

Gistang is from a comic book series and I don't want to spoil it for you, but she may as well be wearing red (Bad 8-bit Emma, don't cross the streams, I mean fandoms...).

We will not head into the territory of gender and sexuality issues in the Star Wars universe (or race for that matter), but you know at least ol' Georgie had the good sense to say that there were female stormtroopers. They just weren't stationed on the Death Star apparently. Yes, the Death Star a sausage-fest for the ages. Roasted sausages, that is....

I have a strong love-hate relationship with the Star Wars universe, but that's a post for another time.

Now, I think I'll have Gistang battle my Nightcrawler figure because they are roughly the same size....

  1. Kewl trooper... remind me to give you a copy of PSP7... makes photo editing a lot easier and it's not nearly the hassle of photoshop.
