Rest in Peace Ralph Mcquarrie – SWR #36

Salutations and felicitations Star Wars fans! We have for you today another episode of the Star Wars Report!

During this episode we talk about Drew Karpyshyn retiring from BioWare, George Lucas getting the Vanguard Award from the NAACP for Red Tails, a successful Kickstarter, Star Wars project that went through and much more!

How much would a Death Star cost to build in real life?

LFL digital production facility plans move forward for Marin County CA. Is Lucasfilm growing as a successful, competitive company? And, could this possibly be related to the production of a certain Star Wars, live action, much talked about television show!? (Thanks to Anthony Madden for pointing that out!)

 

Drew Karpyshyn’s book get’s a title, the Nomi Sunrider book has been canceled, and Timothy Zahn’s Han Solo book will be out this winter!

This episode of the Star Wars Report is sponsored by Toy Hutt! Your source for toys and more from that galaxy far, far away!

Toy Hutt has an awesome deal for avid collectors this week! If you’re looking to purchase a number of Star Wars items in the near future, they have a sale right now where if you purchase $75.00 or more, you get a %20 percent discount!

We also discovered that they have a cool, collecting 101 guide. If you’re new to collecting, or like having your collecting information assimilated neatly (Yeah sure, Borg style. Props if you get this reference!), than take a look at their guide!

Riley also spoke of his conflicted feelings on the Star Wars Happy Meals.

We played a cool interview with Erik Bauersfeld, the voice of Admiral Ackbar and Bib Fortuna, who seems like quite a nice guy!

Ralph Mcquarrie (June 13, 1929 – March 3, 2012) is now one with the Force. This episode of the Star Wars Report is dedicated to him.
