The Harrisburg Comic and Pop Con went off this weekend at the Mall in Harrisburg, Pa. Covid precautions were recommended and it felt like a safe environment to hunt pop culture goodies. Cast members from The Land Before Time films were on hand for autographs and a panel, and there were lots of photo opportunities. I took a handful of pics and and snagged a personal grail.

I got to try the first cheeseburger…


Louis Lunch is recognized by the Library of Congress as the first restaurant to serve a hamburger. I was in New Haven CT, so I had to give it a try. See what all the fuss was about. Final verdict, it was the most delicious history lesson I’ve ever had.

R2-3X (300% 3D Printed R2-D2)

awesomeR23X_01
I’m starting to dabble in the world of Kenner-style Star Wars customs, after restoring a rough 3.75″ R2-D2, dubbed Repro-D2, I got the bug and wanted a slightly larger project. 3 times as large. I purchased an STL file of the original Kenner R2 and had it 3D printed at 300%, roughly the size of a beer can. This size allows for cool photos, that would be impossible to take with an original size R2 action figure. Read on for some progress photos during construction, and more creative photography with my R2-3X.

Repro-D2 (step by step)

ReproD2_06
I’ve been surviving quarantine by purchasing vintage toys and taking studio photos. I felt like my original Kenner R2-D2 was showing his age and wasn’t looking his best in photos. It worked great for Dagobah and some Tatooine photos, but if I were to properly emulate Kim Simmons’ catalog photos, he would appear pristine. I found a beater R2 at a comic shop for $10 and finally got around to restoring him. I 3D printed a third foot to boot. Click below for the step by step.
