The Black Series: Chewbacca

The mighty Chewbacca. In six inch scale, that’s 7 and 3/4 inches of Wookiee. The Hasbro Black Series Chewbacca might not be perfect, but he’s still pretty neat.

As seen above, Chewie comes with bandoleer and bowcaster, but good luck getting the bowed part of the bowcaster to stay on. The piece pushes on to the front and doesn’t really have anything to hold on to, so it constantly falls off. I’ve given up trying to use it and I’m reluctant to glue it on.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 88 touches base with the trooper who finished walking around Australia and the trooper who trekked from San Francisco to San Diego. Then they recap their Star Wars Celebration experiences and play a live segment they did at the con. Wrapping things up is troop reports and upcoming events. Great way to catch up with the legion. Lots of good content in this episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Ultimate Star Wars Book Chat features authors Adam Bray and Tricia Barr as Dan and Corey interview them about the book Ultimate Star Wars. It was a good interview but I do want to note there were a couple audio issues with overlapping audio and one lengthy pause. Otherwise a good episode.

Comics With Kenobi: Episode 1 is hosted by Jeff and Matt as they talk a little about themselves and their comic fandom then dive into Star Wars comics. They go over all the Marvel Star Wars series that are currently out and talk a little about the latest issues. With there not being that many Star Wars comic podcasts out there (in fact I actually don’t know of any dedicated solely to Star Wars comics), this podcast definitely fills a niche that’s been longing for some attention.

I already know I’m gonna go all sappy over The Good Dinosaur.  This trailer yanked me right in — even the music which the cynic in me knows is totally designed to do that.  I just told my inner cynic to shut up.

Release date, November 25.
