The Year in Review – SWR #26

Play

Welcome to this, the last 2011 episode of The Star Wars Report!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This was a very special episode of The Star Wars Report; we discussed how we felt about this past year, and where we’ve come from, once we were The Bothan Report, now we are The Star Wars Report! This is a very free-form episode, and it runs a bit longer than normal, an hour and forty-ish minutes. We had quite a turn out in the chat, which was a very pleasant surprise! We’d imagined that there wouldn’t be that many people, it being so close to Christmas. Thanks for that guys, you’re always fun to talk to. =)

We talked about how it’s great to be members of the Star Wars fan community, a community which bands together to help such children like Baby Leah, a little girl who has been sick for most of her short life, and Katie, a girl who was bullied for liking Star Wars.

We also talked a bit more about the Star Wars expanded universe podcast that will be joining us in January, Star Wars Beyond the Films. You can hear a more in-depth description of Star Wars Beyond the Films and how it came to be on the twenty third episode of Nathan Butler’s podcast, the EU Review.

Our sponsor for this episode is Toy Hutt! Mark was delighted to find that Toy Hutt has a figure of K’Kruhk, a bit more on the expensive side, this figure of K’Kruhk would make Mark really happy if anyone is wondering what to get him for Christmas! Haha

We also talked about how The Star Wars Report has changed, and all our favorite Star Wars items that have come out in the past year, how we’ve changed as Star Wars fans, how much we adored The Hobbit trailer, (yes really, we did) and decided we’d discuss it in the next episode. We also read several emails we got from listeners, which we always love doing, and responded to them.

Thank you so much guys, we’ve loved doing the Star Wars Report, we’ve loved talking to everyone on Facebook, Twitter, via email, and in our live show chat room!

“Twilight is upon me and soon night must fall. That is the way of things……”

ON TO 2012!

Rattling the Lightsaber – SWR #25

Play

Welcome back to The Star Wars Report!

On this episode, we talk about the Glee Christmas special featuring everyone’s favorite wookie, Chewbacca!

We also cover a story about a firefighter Mike Stentzel, who suffered a stroke and was comatose for a time. Star Wars fans and members of the 501st helped raise money for him and his family, once again showing what an awesome community of fans we are!

We were joined by a good friend, and staff member/contributor to The Star Wars Report, Peter Morrison, founder and admin of LightSaber Rattling, a wonderful Star Wars blog. He tells us a bit about himself and LightSaber Rattling, and how he became a Star Wars fan! Be sure to check out his site, he has a lot of fun, original content on it!

We also discussed George Takei’s “Star Peace”, his response to the Star Wars vs. Star Trek feud going on right now between Carrie Fisher and William Shatner!

This episode of  The Star Wars Report is sponsored by our good friends over at, Toy Hutt. Interested in buying Star Wars toys, games and collectibles over the holidays? Check them out, they have a lot of great stuff! On this episode, Bethany was curious to see if they had a Governor Tarkin figure, she was remembering the Stephen Stanton interview we did a while back!

Also, a man in Oregon attacks holiday shoppers with a lightsaber!? Clearly a rogue Jedi.

“One officer was able to hit the man with his taser, but the suspect then broke the taser wire with his light saber- at which point, the officers grabbed him and wrestled him to the ground.”

Wow, clearly a skilled Dark Jedi at that!

I hope you enjoy this episode of  The Star Wars Report!

Geek is Awesome posted an old interview with some of the original trilogy actors, and it reveals a very different set of plans for how Star Wars prequels/sequels could have gone….

We welcomed special guest Nathan Butler on the show to talk about a new podcast he’ll be doing for the Star Wars Report! It’s called Star Wars Beyond the Films, stay tuned for more updates, and we’ll let you know when the show airs for the first time!

The Order, and the Republic – SWR #23

Play

Greetings, and welcome back to the Star Wars Report!

SHOCK AND AMAZEMENT! I, Bethany, the one and only, did the show intro!

On this episode, Riley spoke of his experience playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, in beta.

We had special guests from the New Jedi Order Encyclopedia, Chris and Punit on, and interviewed them about their site!

We also had a number of people in the chat this episode, (where they made fun of me for mis-introducing our guests) be sure and tune into our live shows to join us there! You guys make shows twice as fun. =)

Thanks to Toy Hutt for sponsoring this episode of The Star Wars Report! Check them out at ToyHutt.com.

We also talked about the recently revealed Star Wars Identities, and how all our speculations were incorrect.

And, we arrived at an agreement as to what Krell truly is….. a Jerky McJerk Face!

I hope you enjoy this latest episode, and may the Force be with you in the up-coming holidays!

VIRUS ATTACK!!!!! – SWR #22

Play

Welcome back to The Star Wars Report! After a few technical difficulties, (Bethany’s computer crashed and displayed the Windows Blue Screen of DEATH! It had been attacked by two Sith viruses.) we managed, after some delay, to get the show going live on ustream! Hopefully, after our Thanksgiving break, we’ll be live as usual on Middle-earth Network Radio!

We had two special guests on this episode, Geralyn and Stephen of the Star Wars fan site Roqoo Depot! We had a lot of fun talking to them, and sadly didn’t get to stay on very long with them as we had some connection problems. Perhaps we can have them on again in the future! Be sure to visit their site!

We also discussed the long-in-making, live action series, and speculated many things about it. When will it come into being? Why do we even want a live action series when we have TCW and the EU? (That’s a well duh, question for me, lol.) Why does it take so long to have the money to make it when it’s been announced for six years!? And in planning even longer!

Also, ONE MILLION HOURS LOGGED IN THE OLD REPUBLIC ON ONE WEEKEND!!!! AND IT WAS ONLY BETA TESTING!!! Wow.

And, as has been usual recently, we talked about the latest The Clone Wars episodes, and speculated about the next several episodes.

This episode of The Star Wars Report is brought to you by Toy Hutt! A wonderful place to purchase Star Wars action figures, models, puzzles and more! We looked at a specific item in this episode, a Naboo Starfighter, model kit, which Bethany was rather fascinated by. http://www.toyhutt.com/ep1naboofightermodel.html Visit their site, and support us!

Nice of you guys to drop by, and I hope you enjoy the show!
