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 episode is a little shorter (at least for us). We cover The Mandalorian’s Golden Globes nomination before chatting about some recent toy acquistions, the Star Wars Rebels premier episode, and a quick preview of the new YA High Republic novel Into the Dark.
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.
This week’s episode features some lingering questions re: the final TROS trailer. We also ponder the soliciation for Marvel’s Kylo Ren #2 and how it may require us to reconsider what we thought we knew about Ben Solo’s fall and the birth of Kylo Ren. We conclude the show with a few minutes on the toy reveals coming out of Comic Con Paris and the upcoming Doctor Aphra #1 and Darth Vader #1.
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).
