Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 169 is a double interview with voice actresses Belinda Cornish and Alix Wilton Regan. They talk Mass Effect, Dragon Age, voice acting and working with video game projects. Both are good interviews and entertaining guests which makes for a fun discussion. Plus I like the new outro music. Very nice.

Disney Vault Talk: Make Mine Music episode starts out with a lot of listener feedback, their challenge to RebelForce Radio as they throw down the gauntlet to do a Rebels spinoff show, and their “Disney Watch” segment covering various Disney news items. The focus of this weeks episode is the Disney film Make Mine Music which turns out to be a pretty fast discussion as they quickly go through the history and fun facts for the movie and then plow through each of the shorts that comprise the film. I’ve never seen this particular movie, but I have seen a couple of the shorts that are in it. Afterwards they do some post-show Disney trivia.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXXIV includes discussion on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars pre-viz content recently released on StarWars.com. They also talk about Star Wars Rebels “Spark of Rebellion”. There’s some small spoilers but nothing too major. Guests include Riley and Bethany from the Star Wars Report. Interesting episode as I haven’t had a chance to check out the pre-viz arc for TCW, but after hearing their discussion of it, I’m now very intrigued to check it out.

Comic Review: ‘Aliens vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1′

Aliens vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1 takes a bold move by jumping ahead of all the other storylines to plunge readers deep into the action. At this point everyone is at war: the humans, the androids, the xenomorphs, and the predators. We don’t know how it all happened, but there are clues and glimpses. Still, even with all the confusion, the story is intriguing and packs in a lot of great artwork. Click here to check out our full review.

Hellhole: Inferno brings an end to the series. A huge cast, a ton of plotlines, there’s a lot on the line in this one. The question is: did they pull it off? Click here to read our full review and find out if this is a series worth checking out or passing on.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:The Big Bang Theory & Gotham” episode starts out with a discussion on The Big Bang Theory, switches to Jeremiah’s report on Salt Lake Comic Con, and wraps up with a Gotham discussion. Guests John and Derek (The Gotham TV Podcast) join them to talk about hopes for the tv show. All around, a really good episode but…one of the ongoing gags for this episode is a laugh track (which plays into their discussion of The Big Bang Theory and whether or not the show uses one). Unfortunately the laugh track plays through the whole show and is kind of annoying. Each time it cues it, it took me out of the discussion. Definitely could have used less of that.

Bonus Points Lee Arenberg and Lana Parrilla includes two interviews with the aforementioned actors covering their roles in Once Upon A Time. Both interviews were previously released in early episodes so if you’ve heard them already, you can skip this one. Lee Arenberg talks about playing Grumpy and about his other acting work in the Pirates of the Caribbean films and even his own directing work. Lana Parrilla talks about playing different roles (the evil queen and the mayor), balancing that, and finding the characters.

I finally got some time to catch up on Earth 2. Unfortunately, Earth 2 #24 isn’t the best way to get back into the swing of things as it’s kind of mediocre. Click here to read our full review.

Some books are good and some are great. But it’s always a nice surprise when you pick a new author and get deeply imaginative story filled with fully fleshed out characters and a exciting plot that doesn’t let up. Thus I have to give a big recommendation for James L. Sutter’s The Redemption Engine. Click here to read our full review.

The Black Series: Stormtrooper

September 25, 2014 at 12:02 am | Posted in Reviews, Star Wars, Toys | Leave a comment

The Hasbro 6-inch Black Series Stormtrooper is part of wave four and is marked as figure #09. The Stormtrooper is very similar to the Sandtrooper figure. Of course the Stormtrooper doesn’t come with the backpack or shoulder pauldron. Accessories include an E-11 blaster rifle and a DLT-20A blaster rifle. The armor is clean with no dirty wash like the Sandtrooper. There are a few minor differences in the armor. Continue Reading The Black Series: Stormtrooper…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 84 goes over all the fun ALS Star Wars videos, they talk about the Star Wars fan film awards, the cover the Green Cross droid renovation, and go through all the con and mission reports for the 501st garrisons. One report that caught my attention and was pretty neat to hear about was a troop they did to an even for the blind. It was interesting to hear about the kids’ reactions to the 501st members.

Bombad Radio: September Free-For-All episode features James and special guests Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks) and David Gremillion (Get Your Geek On). As always in the free-for-alls, they cover a lot of topics, this one focusing on all things Star Wars. They talk about the possibilities for Star Wars rides and attractions at Disney theme parks, merchandise options, and much more. They also dig in a little into Star Wars Rebels and Jake Lloyd.

Episode 165 is a live report from Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Jeremiah runs down all the people he’s talked to. Kind of a random and inconsequential episode, so you can skip this one if you like.

Episode 166 features their audio from the Sam Witwer panel at Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Sam talks about Being Human, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, and lots of Star Wars topics. He dives into Maul, out geeking Dave Filoni, the selfish side of the dark side, and the proper viewing order for Star Wars. The panel was moderated by Bryan Young and the audio turned out pretty good. You can hear Master Bruce there in the beginning but he naps through most of the panel so it’s interruption free (for those who don’t know, Master Bruce is Jeremiah’s baby boy who is aptly named Bruce). Best of all, Sam tells lots of fun stories, so you won’t want to miss out on this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
