The Last Jedi IMMEDIATE Reactions – The Blockade Runner Podcast – December 14th, 2017

TLJ Immediate Reactions

Show Notes:

This episode features Kevin, Jake, Jeremey, and John’s RAW and IMMEDIATE reactions to the totally crazy new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi (don’t listen until you’ve seen the film!). We drove straight to a nearby restaurant as soon as the movie was over and just recorded our initial thoughts, so while there’s a bit of background noise and restaurant chatter, we think it’s worth it! We’ll be back with a more formal reaction show soon.

Ryan and John get together one last time before the release of The Last Jedi to speculate about the movie, where the characters are headed, and the potential twists and turns we may encounter along the way. We also discuss some of the most compelling comments from last week’s TLJ media tour and discuss our plans for avoiding spoilers on social media in the days preceding the film’s release.

Join Kevin and John as we breakdown the trailer for The Last Jedi frame by frame. We discuss our favorite images, plot implications, and our hopes for Episode VIII. This discussion took place just minutes after The Last Jedi trailer went live, so our impressions are immediate and, as Snoke would say, “RAW!”

Blockade Runner Pickups: September 11th – 17th

Check out previous Blockade Runner Pickups here.

Ryan:

3.75″ Yoda

Ryan’s internet is out at the moment, but he texted me this pic of the Last Jedi line 3.75″ Yoda he found at Target this week! I’d only heard of those showing up at Wal-Marts so far, but looks like you’ll be able to grab him and the new Obi-Wan everywhere soon.

John:

Jason Gibner Chewbacca Painting

First, and most exciting this week, is actually a gift I picked up for my brother Jason’s birthday. Jason and my sister-in-law Erin share my love of Blast Points, the preferred Star Wars podcast of our entire family. We often end up messaging each other our favorite Blast Points moments after each new episode drops, so I bought a Chewie painting from host Jason Gibner’s Etsy shop. Even though I gifted it to Jason, I’ll definitely be placing another order from Jason’s shop soon, and you should too. You can even grab a Blast Points shirt while you’re there.

Porg Mug!

Ryan is awesome and he sent me the much-coveted Disney Store porg coffee mug!

Birthday Presents for My Son

My youngest son turned four this week and while he mostly wanted Ninja Turtle stuff, we snuck a few Star Wars treats in there for him too.

Target exclusive 3.75″ 7-pack set! This photo is a bit of mash up though as it’s missing the included RotJ Luke Skywalker and Finn from the Vs. pack with Phasma is there in his stead.
