Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 190 features an interview with writer and editor Stuart Moore who talks about E.G.O.S., Zodiac and Marvel’s Civil War. I really liked the comments he had about Zodiac and what it was like working with Stan Lee on that project. Very cool interview.

Episode 191 kicks off with some Star Wars news, then heads into their Star Wars Rebels discussion as they talk about the their initial thoughts heading into the show, their thoughts on season one, and how it compares to The Clone Wars. They do delve into spoilers, but I think most fans at this point have already watched all of season one, so enjoy.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #17 starts with a Star Wars Rebels season finale discussion, dives into some listener feedback, features a quick Oscar discussion, and some more fashion tips from Amy Ratcliffe on customizing accessories. They also have an interview with Jennifer Landa about her Star Wars wedding, and this episode’s character discussion focuses on Leia. Great episode as always, with a really nice balance of topics in this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Toy Review: Revoltech Stormtrooper

Hasbro’s reign on 1:12 scale Star Wars action figures has come to an end. There are many companies getting in on the action, and one of them is a Japanese toy company called Kaiyodo. They’ve released several Star Wars figures, and have several more planned, in their Revoltech line. The Revoltech line uses their “Revolver Joint” articulation to create a highly poseable action figure. As someone who has jumped into the Hasbro 6-inch Black Series line, I wanted to see how these Revoltech figures would compare. So I decided to pick up the Revoltech Stormtrooper.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 189 packs in a couple interviews. First up is Gabe Smith and Ryan Merrill, the writer and artist for the Human comic series. They talk about all the work that goes into getting a comic started, funded and promoted. They talk about the writing, the artwork and going to conventions. For anyone interesting in getting a comic project started or in learning more how the process works, it’s a nice interview to check out. Afterwards they have an interview with Darren Hayes and Tim Stanton from the He Said He Said podcast. It’s a fun interview, but also a random one as they talk about Savage Garden (Darren’s band), Star Wars and how they met. Overall, a fun episode.

Dead Talks: Episode #35 is hosted by Justin, John, and Antoinette as they review The Walking Dead episode “Forget”. Now this is my first step into the world of The Walking Dead podcasts, and as a fan of TWD, I absolutely loved this podcast. The hosts are great, they do a terrific job of covering the television episode and all the cool moments, plus there’s some great observations of comic elements which I would have missed as I haven’t read the comics yet. I’ll definitely be checking out more of this show as it’s a great way to get your Walking Dead fix.

Fangirl Chat: the Strange Magic episode is hosted by Tricia and Kay as they give a very kind review of Strange Magic. It includes a quick description of the movie, discussion of George’s comments about the movie, great animated moments, bad moments, the good and bad storytelling, and more. The episode ended kind of abruptly, and I have to admit the discussion didn’t have the best flow. I kind of got the feeling it was hard to say a lot of positive things about the movie without being critical of it’s missteps and missed opportunities. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
