1486807_467763856667689_129150607_n

Hello everyone!  As the holidays approach, and our Annual Toy Anxiety Daniel S Bracken Jr. Toy Drive and Sidewalk Sale draws near on Saturday, December 6th. It’s time to collect donations for the event.  Every year we receive a large pile of toys that are taken by some of our favorite local costuming groups that attend our event and distributed to those in need through local charities and to children at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Every year as our event becomes more well-known, we tend to get messages from people wanting to know how they can contribute.  Whether you are local, out-of-state or international, it is possible to do so.

All toys must be brand new and still in their original packaging, no opened or used toys.  Please no plush or fast food premium toys though.  Toys for older kids and young teens are especially needed.  You may also donate cash, which will be used by us to purchase toys that will be donated.  We take this seriously, and we promise all cash donations will be used for this purpose by either buying a large selection of cheap toys from our own stock at a non-profit price point, or simply visiting the local Toys R Us.

Here’s how you can donate:

  1. Stop by our store during open hours and drop off any toys you would like to donate.
  2. Send cash donations via PayPal to donations@toyanxiety.com.  It wouldn’t hurt to note with the payment “Toy Anxiety Toy Drive Donation”, but only donations should go to this email address.
  3. Purchase an eGift Certificate on our Website in the amount you wish to donate.  Be sure to include the comment “Toy Anxiety Toy Drive Donation”.
  4. Send toy or cash donations through the mail to:

                        13825 N 32nd St STE #15
                        Phoenix AZ 85032
                        USA
 No one should feel obligated to do this, but anything no matter how small is appreciated.

All donations must be received before Saturday December 6th in order to be collected in time.  All donations are final and non-refundable.

The Empire Strikes Back Uncut Video

This Shot-for-Shot Empire Strikes Back Remake Was Made By 480 Fans

Star Wars fans are a wildly devoted bunch, and 480 of them just had their dreams come true. The Empire Strikes Back: Uncut is a shot-for-shot remake of Episode V, composed entirely of 15-second clips filmed and submitted by very creative fans.

This is fun to watch. Each of the scenes are uniquely different—live-action and illustration and puppets and stop motion, really polished (and really not) and totally silly—all seamlessly edited into a full-length feature. And it’s actually the second installment in the experimental series; Episode IV was a huge hit a few years back, so mastermind Casey Pugh took on the monumental task of sifting through thousands of entries for this follow-up.

Enjoy!

Infographic: Disney’s Star Wars Commander Mobile Game Spreads Across the Galaxy

sw-graphic

Are you playing, Disney’s Star Wars: Commander mobile game? No? You might soon be in the minority. According to Disney Interactive, the game has now been downloaded five million times since it launched on August 21. To celebrate this milestone, they created the rather cool infographic below to give you a look at what percentage of gamers choose to play as the evil Empire versus the Rebel Alliance and how that varies country to country.

Here are some fun facts about the game play so far:

  • Five million players have now joined the war (downloaded Star Wars: Commander since its launch on August 21st).
  • With more than 57% of its players representing the Empire, Russia is one of the strongest Empire strongholds. Other nations that have fallen to the Emperor include Austria, Germany, Finland and the Ukraine.
  • India stands out as a strong member of the Rebel Alliance, as are most countries across South America and Africa.
  • The United States is nearly unanimous in its following of the Dark Side, with the single exception of North Dakota. The force is strong in North Dakota.
  • Half a billion troops have been deployed across both factions.

Star Wars: Commander is a free-to-play combat strategy game where fans will join either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire to recruit and lead an unstoppable force across the Star Wars galaxy.

Star Wars: Commander features the full array of vehicles, weapons and technology from the Star Wars universe. Players who rally to the Rebellion will call upon iconic heroes such as Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia to support missions for justice and freedom, while leaders of the Imperial forces will command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers to gain control of the galaxy. Star Wars: Commander also offers an original Star Wars storyline set within the Galactic Civil War of Episodes IV ­ VI, where commanders determine if it’s the Empire’s strength and relentlessness or the Rebellion’s heroism and resourcefulness that will win the war.

The game is free to download on iPhone and iPad.

The First ‘Star Wars’ Standalone Movie Will Be About Boba Fett: Source

Star_Wars_Logo_by_JohnnySlowhand

As much excitement as there is over the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” there’s just as much interest in the standalone — of spinoff — “Star Wars” movies that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg overseeing. Characters like Yoda and Han Solo have been rumored to be the subjects of the movies, but now a source is saying that bounty hunter Boba Fett will be the focus of the first.

On AMC’s Movie Talk (via JoBlo.com), Jon Schnepp — director of animated series “Metalocalypse” and “The Venture Bros.” — shared this particular info.

“One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact,” Schnepp said. “I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”

That would make sense, since Kasdan’s “Empire Strikes Back” first introduced the now-iconic character. And since Disney has confirmed that the standalone movies will be origin stories, a Boba Fett movie could focus on his early years as a bounty hunter.

The first “Star Wars” standalone movie is expected to be released in 2016, a year after “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
