Star Wars Themed Merchandise at NYCC 2014

Greetings Bothans! Johnamarie Macias is here bringing you a post about some of her adventures at the 2014 New York Comic Con! Focusing on the Star Wars merchandise there, she also includes a lot of great pictures of her finds! You guys are probably familiar with Johnamarie from her work at Making Star Wars, or the podcast Now This Is Podcasting!, but I want to encourage you to check out her site The Wookiee Gunner! With that, I’ll let you all start drooling over the merchandise! ~ Bethany Blanton

The red-carpeted show floor at New York Comic Con was a maze of endless awe and wonder, filled with comic book long boxes, displays of the latest and upcoming books, walls of graphic t-shirts, and various other booths of merchandise. From Avengers to zombies, this year’s exhibitors brought an exceptional array of new toys, vintage items, and custom-made pieces that would make your wallets and purses cringe. As a Star Wars fan, the mighty need to come away with something awesome nearly overpowered me several times. Though I left the con empty-handed, I discovered and photographed wonderful and unique Star Wars items as well as some familiar products.

Frombie: Friendly Zombies

The company creates collectible resin and vinyl limited edition toys, collectible pins, comic books, posters, and much more.

After travels to Dragon Con and some great times talking to Star Wars authors, Aaron and Teresa are back to reviewing books and comics… and talking about some other fun stuff too.

  • They welcome guest Megan from Blog Full of Words and Den of Geek who sticks around with them for most of the episode.
  • Emails! They read a few listener emails and get into a discussion about the portrayal of women in Star Wars. Well Teresa and Megan discuss. Aaron pretty much sidesteps. They also answer the question of which upcoming novel each are most excited for.
  • New York Comic Con is just a few days away and Aaron, Teresa, and Megan will all be there. They talk about the convention, Star Wars panels, and what other things they are most excited for.
  • Aaron and Megan review the comic volume Legacy: Wanted Ania Solo. Teresa attempts to derail them and is somewhat successful.
  • Megan says goodbye and Teresa and Aaron get to talk some Rebels. They get into a detailed discussion and review of the junior novel Ezra’s Gamble.
