Andor Actors, Hasbro Toys, Bad Batches, Pewter Droids – The Blockade Runner Podcast #185

This week’s episode features a look at recent Andor casting rumors, new toy reveals from Hasbro, Ryan’s impressions of the Jedi: Fallen Order next-gen update, and The Bad Batch episode 7, “Battle Scars.” That sounds like a lot, but it’s really just a prelude to the triumphant return of precious metal pewter and its grip on the Star Wars collecting community.

The Blockade Runner Podcast – June 16th, 2017 – Chris and John Argue the Merits of Rogue One

Rogue One Ep Cover Art SF IIShow Notes:

Blockade Runner Chris is NOT a fan of Rogue One, and he’s about the only huge Star Wars fan I know that feels that way, so we devoted this episode to digging into why he doesn’t love the movie. We argue quite a bit, and listening back I realized that at times I fell into the trap of trying to convince someone to like something they just don’t (not usually the best idea), but we also spend a lot of time analyzing the choices made by the Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm and I think it’s a pretty compelling discussion. Plus, Chris and I have been having arguments like this for 20 years and we’re going to keep having them for a long, long time to come. Enjoy (regardless of which side of the argument you come down on)!
