  • When you can't remember what you got when it's time for Who Got What? did you actually even get it?
  • What did YOU do on May the 4th?
  • There's a whole pile of books on the way. Some look pretty good!
  • Did someone accidentally reveal that a Kylo Ren origin story book is in the works?
  • Listener emails and voicemails!

Ep. 115: Shut Thy Hole

The Mandalorian, Mark Hamill, The Phantom Menace and more! Here's what happens:

  • Spillover from last week has to be made up for in this week's Who Got What?
  • Someone made a comparison that the MCU is this generation's Star Wars. What do you think?
  • Mark Hamill says stuff. People react, some more than others.
  • The Vader: Dark Visions comic issue #3 was a scene. Not a good scene.
  • We recap the panel for The Mandalorian. Unfortunately the official video isn't available on YouTube, so we didn't include any audio in here. But man. So rad.
  • Luke got to go to The Clone Wars panel. Man, we are stoked for that show!
  • Eric talks about the Doug Chiang: the Evolution of Star Wars Design - Designing Episode I panel. If you want to see the panel in full, check it out on the Star Wars YouTube channel.
  • So, the Star Wars: Phantom Menace 20th Anniversary Celebration panel happened. If you want to see the panel in full, you can check it out here. I wouldn't do it though.
  • How about the Star Wars Resistance Season Two Sneak Peek panel? Right?!?
  • The big news of the closing ceremony was the announcement of SWCA 2020. Anaheim, here we come!
  • Listener voicemails!

Ep. 114: Literally No One’s Ever Really Gone

It's our first post-Celebration episode where we're all together. Toys, trailers and spoilery news. Here's what happens:

  • Well, Who Got What? is like a waterfall of awesomeness this week.
  • We do a small breakdown of the trailer for The Rise of Skywalker. What does it all mean? How is this going to go? I know you are, but what am I?
  • We talk about the panels that we went to during the first two days of Celebration, including David W. Collins' panel The Music of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and others. There was some great stuff and it was impossible to see it all.
  • What did people think of the Galaxy's Edge panel?
  • A handful of emails and a voicemail from our listeners!
  • SPOILER ALERT: We share some spoilery rumors from our friends at makingstarwars.net. Don't worry, we warn everyone multiple times that they're coming!

Ep. 113: SWCC 2019 - The Good, the Better and the Best

Celebration has wrapped, and we're all finally home. What a scene. Here's what happens:

  • Steele Saunders talks to Chris Seekell from the Star Wars Underworld and Eric after the media walkthrough following the Episode IX panel. It was a rad day to say the least.
  • Galaxy's Edge panel? Yeah, we missed it.
  • The Mandalorian is gonna be amazing. AMAZING.
  • We sit down with artist extraordinaire Chris Hall as the final day of Celebration winds down. This fandom has some amazing moments, and you'll be moved when you hear his take on his visit.
  • Eric lets his kids do their own version of Who Got What? once he shows them what he brought home for them.

  • The teaser trailer is really good.
  • We share our highlights of the convention today, with a strong "David W. Collins" slant.

Ep. 111: Are You Ready for It?

Two years of motivating badly, panel lottery madness, and some great talk about The Phantom Menace! Here's what happens:

  • Unexpected gifts are the common thread in this week's Who Got What?
  • Yeah, we totally forgot to mention our two year anniversary. Luke claims that Eric was ashamed and hoped that no one would bring it up.
  • Just when we though we had the final word on how the panel lottery selection for Star Wars Celebration Chicago would work, someone throws a wrench into it. Then that wrench was removed. Or was it?
  • Peter Serafinowicz recorded the dialogue for Maul in Solo. Guess when he found out they didn't use his voice?
  • Dallas discusses some of the characters of The Phantom Menace.
  • Don't forget about the call-in show that we're doing to do this upcoming week. Be sure to check out the show on Twitter for details.
  • Some sweet voicemails from our pal Turbo and a newer listener, Chris Abbott. Check out Chris' YouTube channel, youtube.com/starrapter!
  • The outdo song is from Taylor Swift's reputation album. Be sure to check out ...Ready for It? and all the other killer tracks wherever you buy music!
