Episode 290: Lego, My Star Wars
It's been a big couple of weeks for fans of Star Wars and Legos! First, the fan-loved Lego Star Wars video game series had its third installment released. While the first two games covered the events from the movies, the Clone Wars TV Series has extended this franchise's life as you can play Lego mini-figs of Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Jar-Jar plus dozens more characters through the events of the first two seasons of the Clone Wars! Listen as Dan the Rockstar reviews this newest Star Wars video game! But even more exciting for Star Wars Lego fans in southern California, Legoland just opened it's Star Wars Miniland, and Star Wars Action News' reporter Berent was on hand to cover the event with his son Pharoah, as well as talk to celebrities who share a love for Star Wars, including Gina Lee Nolan, Tony Hawk, Brooke Burke, and Christian Slater! And then Berent talks to Lego Master Builder Gary MacIntyre about the creation of this new Lego park! With Brock reviewing Paul S. Kemp's new Old Republic novel Deceived, Jerry looking back at the history of Kenner, and Marjorie and Arnie finding more Star Wars collectibles in stores, it's all this week on the Star Wars Action News podcast!
