Toy Chest Theater: Boba Fett and…Boba Cat?

By Rob Siebert

Some things are just so random, you can’t help but laugh when they’re juxtaposed against each other. Such is the case with this image from raffnav.

So is this Boba Cat? Is it a stray? How exactly does a cat come to wander on to a spaceship? In a galaxy far, far away no less. Maybe Fett heard about how much people love the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, so he figured he needed a little sidekick of his own…

This image is actually the first in a series. Simply put, it’s Boba Fett with a bunch of animals. But this image is by far the stand out because of, for lack of a better term, its “body language.” Fett seems every bit as confused as we are. What’s more, you can read confrontation into the cat if you choose to.

“Hey! Put me down, bucket head!”

Toy Chest Theater: Hellboy at Home

By Rob Siebert
Knows that’s a LOT of cats.

For obvious reasons, lately we’re seeing a decent amount of “life in quarantine” shots from toy photographers lately. I put a couple TMNT ones in a recent post.

But here we have another one by John_Conner42 on Instagram. It’s obviously not mine to title. But if it was, I’d call it “Hellboy at Home.” In a lot of ways, this is the perfect portrait of American life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Quite often, there’s that one detail in an image that puts it over the top. In this one, it’s the milk pouring into the bowl. How he pulled that off I have no idea…
