Episode 493: Star Wars Celebration 2017 Prep Show
Star Wars Celebration is one week away and each day closer brings more announcements. Join Marjorie and Arnie on this podcast to run down the news. Exclusives from mainstays LEGO, Funko, Gentle Giant, Hallmark, ThinkGeek and Hasbro, plus oddballs like Nissan and WonderWorld Comics are discussed.
On this show you can also hear interviews with Celebration Art Show artists Brian Miller and Joe Corroney, discussing their exclusive artworks for the convention. And Frank Diorio is back on the show to talk about this year’s Celebration Diorama Project — the Death Star.
But what if you’re not going to Celebration? Star Wars Action News is here with reviews of things to watch and buy while at home, including Hasbro’s new Jedha Revolt action figure 4-pack, and a rundown of the Rogue One Blu-Ray exclusive releases.
