Ep. 135: You Need to Calm Down

Disney+ is gonna rule, Solo spin-off rumors, and Snoke's a butthole. Here's what happens:

  • Eric comes out of nowhere with a triumphant win in Who Got What?, and a friend hooks Dallas up to keep him in the game.
  • Hasbro offered the SDCC exclusives on the Hasbro Pulse website. Being a Pulse Premium member really paid off! Just kidding. It didn't.
  • The Netherlands got a Disney+ beta, and it is robust.
  • People are crazy.
  • Kylo Ren, am I right?
  • Snoke is the worst Scoutmaster of all time. The dude doesn't even know how to dress to go camping. It's no wonder nobody made it to Eagle Scout. Check out the Star Wars: Age of Resistance - Supreme Leader Snoke comic to find out more.
  • We did it all for the cheeseburgers.
  • Go buy some t-shirts! The link is below.

Ep. 134: Sheev It Up with Robbo

Finally some Black Series news for Triple Force Friday, plus Snoke in comic form! Here's what happens:

  • Our pal Robbo (@GC9X) helps us break down some big SPOILERS at the end of the episode. Don't worry, we give plenty of warnings.
  • It's twist and twist and turn after turn in Who Got What? this week. Luke tells us about the toy store that the Beach Boys wrote a song about.
  • We finally get some Black Series leaks for the wave that will be out on Triple Force Friday! The figures look great. Thank you YakFace via @karldiesel on Instagram!
  • Kylo Ren goes to Dagobah with Snoke in the Age of Resistance: Snoke comic. He faces Luke in the cave the same way that Luke faced Vader there. What do you think about that?
  • SPOILER WARNING! We talk about the spoilers that Jason Ward, Jedi Paxis and Bespin Bulletin have been serving up. There are plenty of warnings going in, so you'll have plenty of time to bail out if you don't want to hear them. And trust us, we totally get it if it's not your thing. It's a lot of fun though!

Ep. 133: (Ph)asma and H(ux)

No spoilers here, but there's still plenty to talk about. Here's what happens:

  • Kids, am I right?
  • Who Got What? leads to "who's not getting what, like ever" for a couple of us. Dallas scores though.
  • In Twitter news, like what you like but don't start a fight. Or do, I guess.
  • What responsibility do creatives have for the actions the people who consume their art take?
  • We read Star Wars: Age of Resistance - General Hux and it is good. Quite good. And pretty metal.
  • What are you hoping for during Triple Force Friday? When are we getting a trailer?
  • Wolf face tattoos. Or something.
  • Go buy some t-shirts! The link is below.

Ep. 132: Don’t You Wish Your Girlfriend Was Dark Like Rey

D23 does not disappoint! New footage from The Rise of Skywalker, an official trailer for The Mandalorian, and there's Disney+ news too! Here's what happens:

  • It turns out that Etsy is where it's at in this weeks' Who Got What? segment.
  • So, D23 happened. Did you hear about it? How about a new poster for The Rise of Skywalker? Oh, and how about some new footage from it?
  • Keri Russel talks about Zorri Bliss and her sexy-time relationship with Poe Dameron.
  • We finally get an official trailer for The Mandalorian. The scene with IG-11 is stunning on its own. The rest is great too!
  • The Disney+ app looks good. Hopefully it runs well.
  • LFL officially confirms that Ewan McGregor is coming back as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a Disney+ series!

Ep. 131: Just Like Us, Except Minus the Plus

Barbie loves Star Wars, 501st logo controversies, and some big Disney+ news! Here's what happens:

  • Who Got What? leads into some talk about what we want to get, which is the special edition Barbies!
  • Luke talks some Fantasy Football stuff. Eric said he would edit it out. I guess he missed it.
  • A guy made some art for the Fandom Menace movement based on the logo of the 501st Legion. Stuff happened. Unpleasant stuff that wasn't handled so well.
  • Disney+ is coming soon, but not as soon in some places as in others?
  • It looks like the Obi-Wan series rumors are finally getting some wind behind them. Could this be the one?
  • The trailer for the second and FINAL season of Star Wars Resistance came out last week. It looks amazing! I'm not sure we're ready for it to already be the last season though.
  • Check out Nathan Hamill's (@NathanHamill) art and get some t-shirts at nathanhamill.threadless.com!

Ep. 130: Why Is Everyone Calling Me Robby?

Benioff and Weiss, streaming wars, Disney marketing and Kid Rock. Here's what happens:

  • Luke knocks one out of the park in Who Got What? this week.
  • Hey, remember Kid Rock? Yeah, I didn't think so.
  • Benioff and Weiss (the Game of Thrones guys) have a deal with Netflix. What's that gonna do with their Star Wars trilogy?
  • You take the good, you take the bad; you take them both and there you have Reddit.
  • Disney's marketing leaves some of us feeling confused.
  • Don Williams, brother of John Williams, talks about the music for The Rise of Skywalker and what it's like to play on it.

Ep. 129: Cat’s in the Cradle and Batting Cleanup

Triple Force Friday speculation, fandom highlights ands more. Here's what happens:

  • Well, Who Got What? led down a unique path. There's something special about finding things that you forgot you bought.
  • What are we going to see on Triple Force Friday? We have our own ideas about that.
  • Funko Pop! Rides has an Amazon-exclusive Millennium Falcon coming out. It's almost $70. Is it worth it? What do you think?
  • What would Funko have to do to get Luke back into the Funko Pop! game?
  • Supreme Leader Snoke's son-in-law asks what he should consider a "do not miss" for Celebration Anaheim.
  • What kind of music does each Star Wars character listen to? Dallas seems to think that "Cat's in the Cradle" is by Neil Young. That's one more kid who will never go to school.
