This episode your hosts discuss feedback from:

  • State of Star Wars:
    • Films & TV
    • Freemaker- where is it fit as Lego Canon?
  • Books and comics
    • Lack of big events
    • No 2nd string character base yet. Unless you count Rebels and the comics
    • Some SW Fans will buy regardless of content
  • Other- games
    • Miniatures, Armada, LCG, Fantasy Flight, RPG lines, Star Wars Destiny, Battlefront, App games,
    • “Authentic Star Wars experience” – probably a worse explanation than “It’s Lego Canon” Can’t we just say they are N-Canon? Or flat out Infinities.
    • Decent games that were cancelled- Darth Maul, 1313
    • Battlefront- shallow- a perfect description
  • STATE OF FANDOM (in General)
    • No one hates Star Wars more than a Star Wars fan
    • Fandom is fractured, and may be repairable.
    • The Alt-Right of Fandom: “Alt-Legends” What does it mean?
    • Taking it back- is it possible to change perceptions of Fans of Legends? Or is it too late?
    • Enthusiasm for talking to fellow fans seems to be down
    • So if you want to help lighten our moods- go leave us a positive Review on iTunes, and hit us with a #AltLegends tweet, to support us too.
  • Celebrating 200 EPISODES!!!!

Once more your hosts cover entirely too much of your feedback action this episode. But don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on Star Wars while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
