Triple Force Friday Recap Special – The Blockade Runner Podcast #124

BR 124 CoverThis episode features the first portion of a lengthy discussion we recorded this week that got a little bit away from us in terms of length, so we’re splitting it into two episodes. This first one features our Triple Force Friday recap including our experiences going out looking for product, our impression of the merchandise we found, and some of the problems we see with quality, promotion, and distribution.

We’ll be back later in the week with the rest of our chat covering #Where’sRose, Kevin Feige’s announced Star Wars movie, and the Star Wars book announcements from NYCC 2019.

We also talk a little bit about Babu Frick, but somehow we forgot to bring up the week’s biggest story: Kevin Fiege producing a future Star Wars film. Whoops.

We’re sorry.

Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball – The Blockade Runner Podcast #121

BR 121 Cover

This week’s episode is all about Star Wars video games. We kick off the episode by disucssing the recently announced Jedi Knight and Jedi Academy console ports before devoting the rest of the show to taking a look at the recently released and completely excellent Star Wars Pinball package for Switch. We originally planned on discussing the many Rise of Skywalker toy leaks that have been happening lately, but there was just too much pinball to talk this week so we’re saving that discussion for episode 122.
