  • Wow, I almost feel embarrassed that I host a regular Star Wars podcast and my coverage of Force Friday amounted to seven minutes while you guys talked about it for over an hour.

    Great episode, Mark! Really fun to hear someone else’s thoughts about the Force Friday unveiling. I hit up a Toys ‘R Us and a Walmart that day, but didn’t end up buying anything. Not because the stores were out of product, I just wasn’t feeling it on the classic 3 3/4 inch figures. (A couple days ago, I did end up buying the six inch Black Series Kylo Ren figure, and I’m looking forward to the Captain Phasma figure from the second wave.)

    You guys brought up an interesting point in that maybe this Force Friday event felt a little underwhelming because… the movie is still three months away! We’ve hardly seen any footage; it’s still so abstract. I’m actually happy that Lucasfilm is holding a lot of merchandise back until the release of the movie. No novelization, no soundtrack, no art-of book until December means there will be significantly fewer spoilers floating around. Yes, there are always some spoilers–I’m sure there will be A LOT coming out in the days before the movie, but we can cut back a little.

    Love the show; as always, keep up the great work!
