Somehow, I have returned.
Happy May Fourth! It's the one day a year where I take my constant Star Wars ramblings my co-workers are subjected to daily and impose them on the Plastics News Kickstart audience. And try to make it a little bit plasticky.
This year might be a little less plastic and maybe a little less Star Wars, as Managing Editor Rhoda Miel covered the most recent news showing up in the "Star Wars + plastics" Google search.
It's fine, you know. Star Wars is for everyone. But maybe next year I'll find some bicycle aspect to write about. *wink, wink*
In addition to the hordes of stuff up for sale for the holiday, memorabilia from the original Mandalorian, Jeremy Bulloch, aka Boba Fett, went up for auction this morning in the United Kingdom. Bulloch played the iconic bounty hunter in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Bulloch died in 2020, but he amassed a collection of Boba Fett memorabilia, everything from official Star Wars merch to fan-made items like a steel helmet lined with foam for wearing.
The hot ticket item is expected to be Bulloch's own Boba Fett action figure, valued at more than $1,000.
