Ryan is back from Batuu so he takes us through his experience at Galaxy’s Edge. We also have the same conversation about the toy industry we do everytime Hasbro announces new products, share our excitement for the recently announced Visions: Ronin novel, and of course break down Bad Batch episode 11, “Devil’s Deal.”
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.
This week’s show features a look at the debut episode of The High Republic Show and Hasbro’s recent Fan Friday announcements. We also couldn’t help getting into our thoughts re: Hasbro pricing, distribution, and whether or not toys will ever be big with kids again.
Both Ryan and John have been playing Star Wars: Squadrons. We spend the first half of the show sharing initial impressions before reviewing Hasbro’s recent PulseCon announcements including the HasLab, Black Series, and Vintage Collection reveals. Oh yeah, and outrageous candy cane colorway stormtroopers and holiday porgs.
Ryan and John discuss The Bad Batch announcement, some light speculation regarding what we’d like to see in future Solo-related projects, the latest Hasbro toy reveals, and Ryan’s initial impressions of the Dr. Aphra audio drama.
This episode features the second half of our conversation last week (too big to be contained in just one show!). We begin by discussing the lack of Rose Tico in TROS products and promotion before looking at the publishing announcements from NYCC 2019. We wrap the show up with some talk of the Kevin Feige news and what it may mean for the future of the Star Wars films.
This 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.
This week’s episode is news heavy again as we discuss Deborah Chow directing the Obi-Wan show, the TROS issue of Empire Magazine, and the (official this time) Triple Force Friday reveals and livestream. 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.
Triple Force Friday is less than two weeks away, and even though we haven’t really had any official announcements about what’s being released for the event, we spend two hours talking about all of the toys that have leaked so far (pretty much all of them).
This year’s San Diego Comic Con didn’t feature a Rise of Skywalker panel, but there still ended up being quite a few fun Star Wars panels and announcements coming out of the show. We open up the show with some discussion of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Arts panel and Kevin Smith’s story about a mysterious Episode IX set before spending the remainder of the episode breaking down the Hasbro and publishing panels.
Not gonna lie, this episode ended up being a nightmare to finish and publish due to some unfortunate technology mishaps and as a result the sound had to be pulled straight from the Skype recording. The quality if noticeably lower than usual, but also still fine (in my opinion). Next week’s episode should be back to our normal sound quality. Oh, and video is back too if you prefer to watch/listen through YouTube.
