S.H. Figuarts is kicking some serious butt in the toy market with their awesome First Order Stormtrooper. The thing looks awesome, is highly poseable, and blows everything else in the same scale out of the water.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: Episode #006 covers a bad week for Trump as he talks abortion, the numbers involved for delegates, and what’s in store for the convention. Riley and Scott take politics and make it interesting. It’s noteworthy when each week one of the podcasts I look forward to most has nothing to do with Star Wars.

Blast Points: Episode 17 continues to raise the bar as Jason interviews Star Wars author J.W. Rinzler. I’ve heard Jason do a handful of interviews, and he always does a top notch job with some excellent questions. In this episode he talks with Rinzler about his first exposure to Star Wars, getting a job at Lucasfilm, making the Making Of books, and tries to get in a question about the Making of The Force Awakens, which unfortunately gets shot down. Good try though. They wrap up with some quick Star Wars favorite questions to finish off a fun interview. Be sure to give this one a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 236 features a Rogue One roundtable discussion with Jeremiah, James, Jason, Gabe and author Adam Bray as they give a full breakdown of the trailer with some excellent observations and connections. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode #19 is their Star Wars Rebels season two finale roundtable episode. Jamie and Kate are joined by friends Gary, Matt and Rod as they discuss the episode. With four Irish guys and just one girl, it’s not the most diverse roundtable, but it’s okay. I think the regular episodes have a lot better dynamic between just Jamie and Kate. The roundtable isn’t a bad idea, but it might benefit from a different selection of guests.

Blast Points: Episode 12 covers some Episode VIII rumor/leaks/news like Luke being in a casino, they talk about Donnie Yen’s Instagram account, Rogue One speculation, Star Wars Rebels “Mystery at Chopper Base” thoughts, Gary Whitta writing more Star Wars Rebels episodes, who’s Rey, her┬árole/destiny and the importance of Kenobi, and a deep dive into Rey’s vision as they analyze the audio with a complete breakdown of both left, center, front right, etc audio channels. Very interesting as you can pick up a lot of stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily catch.

Blast Points: Episode 15 is a special mini-episode devoted to the Rogue One trailer as they talk about Mon Mothma, the droid character, the lack of Mads, the tone and more as they go through it scene-by-scene. Funny episode with some good observations. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Poe Dameron #1 kicks off a new ongoing series with two fan favorites from The Force Awakens. While Poe and BB-8 can certainly sell a comic, the question is whether Charles Soule and Phil Noto can do their part to make them into an interesting story. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Warning, Star Wars Rebels spoilers below.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 009 is the second part of their Breaking Anakin discussion. They talk about why Yoda should have trained Anakin, Anakin living a lie, whether giving him a padawan was a good idea, Padme’s role in Anakin’s fall, and whether Obi-Wan was to blame. Great discussion.

Blast Points: Episode 13 is devoted to the Star Wars Rebels finale “Twilight of the Apprentice.” They talk about the great use of Maul, why Yoda sent Ezra to Malachor, the look of Vader’s face, Kanan being blind, and where the series will go from here. Great mini-episode with fun discussion and some humor.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #64 dives right into the Star Wars Rebels season two finale “Twilight of the Apprentice.” They talk about punches being pulled with deaths off screen, Kanan now being Ram Kota, listener feedback on the finale, Maul being there, where his lightsaber came from, what happened to the Darksaber, Mike Audette joins them as they get into Maul being over Kenobi, Vader battle damage. Dengar Dan jumps in and they talk helicopter lightsabers, Ezra’s lightsaber being destroyed, the temple guard connection, and is Ahsoka alive. Courtney joins them as they discuss whether Ahsoka’s story should have come to an end, what did Yoda send them after, Yoda and bad advice, Ezra and the Sith holocron, Vader’s eyebrow, and there’s one more guest, Mike McDonald.
