The sequel to last year’s smash hit Robot Chicken: Star Wars is sure to be hilarious as Seth Green, Matt Senreich and the rest of the Robot Chicken crew again focus their sick and twisted sense of humor squarely on the Star Wars universe.
There are three teaser clips for Sunday’s episode floating around on YouTube right now, but The Blot refuses to watch or post them here because I really want everything about Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II to be a surprise. I’m really stoked (is that still a word?) Robot Chicken decided to do this again and can’t wait to see what George Lucas lets them get away with this time!
Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II airs Sunday, November 16th at 10:30/9:30c on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
The SugarHill Sessions EP offers listeners a chance to hear the pure heart of the music of What Made Milwaukee Famous. It's just 5 guys in a classic Texas studio with guitars, piano and simple percussion, performing their songs in one take. No bells, no whistles, no overdubs. Called "the Abbey Road of the South", SugarHill is the oldest continually operating studio in Texas. Having played host to the likes of Lightnin' Hopkins, Johnny Bush, and Willie Nelson, SugarHill has been quietly contributing to the musical legacy of Texas for the past 67 years.
The Blot has been a huge fan of these Austin, TX rockers ever since their debut album Trying To Never Catch Up came out in 2006, and I definitely recommend downloading this free EP at the link below if you’re interested in hearing some great indie rock!
Today’s comic book inspired designer vinyl figure colorway is the only one included in this week long series that has yes to come out. Over the past two or three years, Muttpop has become almost as well known for their amazing colorways as they are for their Lucha Libre vinyl figures. Tequila, the first Lucha Libre character released in vinyl form, has a huge year ahead of him with 3 to 4 different colorways set to be released. Of course it is Tequila’s Pop Culture colorway that really has The Blot excited.
Can you spot the two Tequila Pop Culture Edition figures in the picture above?
As you can see from the picture below, Tequila’s Pop Culture colorway is based on the Marvel Comics super hero the Incredible Hulk’s color scheme of green skin and purple clothing. I warned you it was a popular colorway!
Every Tequila figure released to this point is already sold out, but with so many different colorways coming out in the next year getting one of the new Tequila figures shouldn’t be a problem. No price or run size for the Tequila Pop Culture Edition figure has been released yet, but what is known is that there will be a hard to find Tequila Pop Culture variant colorway created as well. I’m still trying to find out if the variant figure will be randomly inserted blind box style or if it will be sold separately in extremely limited quantities. The Pop Culture variant figure is rumored to be based on another popular character but whether it is based on a hero or a villain is anyone’s guess.
