Ep. 68: A Wretched Hive of Butthole-ery

Star Wars fandom is in a state that is, to put it lightly, less than ideal. We felt like we had to address it. Here's what happens:

  • Luke's Funko Pop embargo has been lifted! Eric loves Enfys Nest. Dallas took it easier than usual!
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story is still awesome! The box office numbers aren't an indicator of the quality of the film. Where's the disconnect?
  • There is a section of Star Wars fandom that believes that content creators should never speak out against their detractors, regardless of how terrible the attacks against them are. It's becoming quite an issue.
  • We want Star Wars fandom to be a positive experience for everyone overall. How do we get there?
  • Eric sorta loses it.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, including some Solo soundtrack talk!

  • Favorite moments, questionable moments, favorite characters, what happens next?
  • Darth Maul? WHAT?!?

Live Call-In Show Ep. 1: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story just dropped! We thought it would be great to get your opinions on the matter, so we set-up this call-in show. We appreciate all of those who called in and participated. It was a ton of fun!

If this is your first time listening, just know that the sound quality isn't nearly as good as our usual show, it's not horrible, but not great either. Needless to say, internet call in show software still has a ways to go!

The media blitz for Solo: A Star Wars Story continues. A new issue of the Darth Vader comic is here! Here's what happens:

Ep. 63: It’s Pronounced Han, not Han

We got a cool featurette for the upcoming Solo film called Becoming Solo. Here's what happens:

  • Luke is on vacation and podcasting from his rental car in the dark.
  • Dallas is back and got some great stuff. The Funko kids will be able to go to college.
  • The 6" Black Series dewback is awesome. Eric takes stupid pictures of his for his Facebook page.
  • Stand up and shout.
  • We discuss Becoming Solo. There is some excellent footage in there!
  • A new animated series is on the way.
  • Issue #15 of the Darth Vader comic is out. It's fishy. A lot of people die. SpongeBob SquarePants comes up.
  • Listener emails and voicemails. Josh and Richie ask, "Where are the toys?" JP postulates on Resistance, the upcoming animated series. King Tom wonders if Ahch-To will show up in more stories.
  • Eric takes pictures of action figures and comes up with crazy storylines for them.

Ep 62: We Ruin the Novelization of “The Last Jedi”

We FINALLY get to the novelization of The Last Jedi by Jason Fry. Here's what happens:

  • Dallas went to see an NBA playoff game, so Luke and Eric are joined by King Tom (@TomChansky) and Nick Palmer (@BlueAce1878)!
  • Nick has completed his 6" Black Series collection. Holy crap.
  • Eric got some stuff on clearance. No dewback though.
  • We talk about the novelization of The Last Jedi. Did add to the experience? Best parts? What could we live with out? Eric says he liked it, but did he?
  • Where is everyone at with Solo: A Star Wars Story? Are the tickets really going on sale on May 4th?
  • Listener voicemails. King Tom sent in a voicemail and ended up being a guest host. It's like that scene where there are 1000 Reys looking in the mirror.
  • You think you found love, but you're standing in The Pit.
