May The Fourth Be With You!

In 2016, Punk Rock Paint released one of the most epic custom trading card sets ever…the “Galactic Greats Set.” I was fortunate to pick up one of the 66 sets made before they sold out.

Travis took inspiration from Fleer team stickers and “Baseball’s Famous Feats” cartoons to make these parodies. Here are a few of my favorite logos…

Ewoks Endor

Astromechs

…and some of the best “Galactic Greats”…

Han Solo

Stormtrooper

Ackbar

I really hope Travis returns to making custom cards soon. I have purchased three of his creations. In addition to the Star Wars set, I have also picked up his Stranger Things box set and Stars of The Negro Leagues. He has also created a ton of digital-only cards, including a some fantastic Star Wars customs that take their inspiration from other sets. Check out Punk Rock Paint for a ton of stuff that will bring a smile to your face!

May The Fourth Be With You!

Cindel and Mace

George Lucas’ Star Wars saga was (and still is) huge all over the world. From the original trilogy, to the prequels, the toys, the video games, the fast food promotions…you name it, Lucas has probably done it. Lost in the shuffle is a little girl named Cindel.

Cindel was one of the human characters in the made-for-television movies “The Ewok Adventure” and “The Battle for Endor.” The actress who played Cindel, Aubree Miller, was only about four or five years old when she auditioned for the part. A quick look at IMDB.com shows that Ms. Miller never appeared in another movie or television show besides the two Ewok TV movies. So where is she now?

According to the Star Wars Actors Database, Ms. Miller attended college in the early 2000’s and took a job at a small television station in Chico, California.

It would be interesting to see what Ms. Miller remembers about the Ewok specials, but since she was so young at the time she may not remember them much at all. I know I have trouble remembering anything from before kindergarten…heck, I have trouble remembering high school sometimes!

Eric Watson, who played Cindel’s brother Mace (Towani, not Windu) in the movies, does remember quite a bit about his days on the Ewok sets. Click here to read an interview with Mr. Watson, and click here for Mr. Watson’s official website. Though he did continue acting after the Ewok specials, nothing else he did eclipsed the popularity of those shows.
