Resistance is back from it’s mid-season hiatus and Ryan is all caught up after taking a bit of a break from the show himself, so we’ve dedicated this episode to reviewing and discussing the show from episode #5 (“The High Tower”) all the way through the most recent episode, #13 (“Dangerous Business”). We also chat about the mid-season trailer, “Buff Salacious Crumb,” Resistance toys and our frustration with the difficulty of tracking down 3.75″ figures lately, and DIY movie poster light boxes.
Ryan is back from Japan and we open this week’s episode with a bit of chat about the Japanese Star Wars collectibles scene. From there we turn to some comics, Galaxy’s Edge, and Episode IX news before jumping into our break down of the recently released Age of Republic series from Marvel. We wrap up the show with Ryan’s endorsement of the Flight of the Falcon book series and our Episode IXReturn of the Jedi 2 title predictions.
John does a brief solo show covering possible links between TFA‘s early concept art and Episode IX for our final episode of 2018. We’re mostly just using Peter Sciretta’s Twitter comments from a few days ago as an excuse to pull down and pour over Phil Szostak’s incredible Art Of books for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Follow along if you have the books (or check out the images in the video version), and if you don’t, definitely pick them up if you can – they are must have resources for sequel trilogy fans, no doubt. Thanks for watching or listening in 2018 and here’s to what will undoubtedly be an unbelievable 2019 for Star Wars fans!
