How Much Would $6,000 Buy? – SWR #40


Welcome back to the Star Wars Report podcast!

On this episode, your hosts Bethany and Riley are out of town, minus some of their recording equipment; so they record a pre-recorded show for you by themselves. WE MISSED YOU MARK!! (We also talked about you.) >=)

Red Tails is coming this spring, May 22nd, to DVD, and Blu-ray!

A new twist for Leia’s Journey for Baby Princess Leah!

Well, Leia’s Journey has been a huge success so far and a blast to do. We have had a ton of people that want Leia to stop by for a visit, and, well, Leia can only be in one place at a time….. UNTIL NOW!?!?

“What do you mean?”, you might be thinking. Well, we have decided to add a “New Twist” to the “Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah” project. Leia will continue her journey as scheduled, but to help with getting Leia to more stops and conventions, we are going to open up the “Leia’s Journey” to anyone who has a “Princess Leia 12 inch action figure” of their own.

Remember when we discussed several rumors about Star Wars: Battlefront III? Well, even more rumors and speculation have surfaced over the disclosure of some interesting information…..

James Arnold Taylor and Ashley Eckstein will be reprising their roles as hosts of Star Wars Weekends again this year!

There’s a life size statue of Darth Malgus!?!? And it costs nearly $6,000?

We also cover the CBS copyright infringement shutdown of a Star Trek fan-film. We compare CBS’ action on this to Lucasfilms’ fan relations, and talk about how grateful we are that Lucasfilm isn’t overly stringent with their copyrights. (If they were, you wouldn’t, after all, be reading this, or listening to this episode. Thank you Lucasfilm!)

We read two emails from listeners (Thanks guys! We always love feedback!), and talk about the newly released Star Wars Kinect!

And of course we discuss the travesty that is Han Solo dancing…. (Travesty? Really? Why is that so bad? It’s just like a cos-player deciding to dance while in costume at a convention, and everyone seems to like that…. and it’s not like it’s a main plot point in the game, or a part of an in universe novel, comic or video game. I would understand people being upset if right in the middle of a serious cut-scene from The Force Unleashed, Starkiller broke out the moves and started to tango.)

On that swingin’ and jiggin’ note, we hope you enjoy the episode!
