Coming Soon to ‘A Certain Point of View, Too’

Hi, there, Dear Reader. It’s late afternoon here in my corner of Florida on this 27th day of May, 2020, and it’s quite hot and humid outside. Currently, it’s 91° F under partly cloudy skies. With humidity at 60% and a southwesterly breeze of 11 mph, it feels like it’s 102° F. Definitely not “go out for a stroll” weather, at least not for me.

I had hoped to write a review to share with you today; I usually pick a topic for my blog in the mornings and write the first draft on Microsoft Office’s Word while I’m offline, then publish my post here on WordPress in the early evening hours. That was my intention, but I woke up tired and foggy-brained this morning, and despite my best efforts to come up with something before I connected to the web, I stayed tired and foggy-brained for much of my day.

However, tomorrow is another day, and I do have some sort of game plan for my work day.

Today, for instance, Amazon Prime delivered a new addition to my growing (but modest) Star Wars action figure collection: Star Wars The Black Series Han Solo (Bespin) Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary.

Originally, Han was supposed to arrive sometime last night, according to Amazon Prime, but apparently the shipment left the warehouse far too late in the evening hours so the delivery was postponed till today. The figure arrived this afternoon, and if I hadn’t been so tired you’d probably be reading the review right now. But…I was tired and a bit groggy for most of the day, so….

So, yeah. If all goes well, tomorrow you’ll be reading my review of this 2020 Star Wars The Black Series collectible, complete with illustrations, comparisons with the original Kenner Toys figure from 1980, and (if I find any) YouTube videos of related vintage commercials.

Per my Amazon Prime Orders page, tomorrow I should be receiving a package with the 2018 Walt Disney Records remastered edition of the 1977 Star Wars original soundtrack album.

Like the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back CD, which is a reissue of the North American/Japanese 2-LP album from 1980, Star Wars: A New Hope presents the music of the ’77 2-LP set on one CD.

If all goes well and the CD gets here tomorrow as scheduled, I’ll be writing about it on Friday.

And if the Force is with me, I’ll be getting this 40th Anniversary Star Wars The Black Series version of Yoda, sporting a retro-looking “Kenner” cardback that looks almost identical to the original packaging of the 1980 3.75-inch action figure from the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back collection. So you can expect a post about this newest addition to my collection sometime this weekend.

So, Dear Reader, that’s what I have in store for the next fun and exciting posts in A Certain Point of View, Too. I’m always happy whenever I have something new to share with you all, and I hope that you have a good time reading my posts here.

I hope you are well, safe, and keeping yourself busy in these strange and sometimes scary times. Thanks for stopping by, and until next time, I’ll see you on the sunny side of things.
