Show Notes

Now the Die is Cast!

It's been one month since Force Friday but the onslaught of new Star Wars products has not let up. From tie in items like vitamins to cereal to toothpaste to Pop Chips, Star Wars is on everything. And of course that means lots of new toys too!

On this episode of Star Wars Action News Arnie and Marjorie are joined by Andrew to look at some of the new Star Wars items in a head to head match.

First we put two BB-8s to the test -- Hasbro's Target Exclusive Remote Control BB-8 versus Sphero's App Controlled BB-8.  One is bigger, one is more expensive, but should you buy one, both, or neither?  

Then we look at Disney's new Elite line of 6.5-inch Die Cast action figures. They're $5 more than Hasbro's Black Series 6-inch, but every bit as in demand, selling out nationwide. On this show we put Disney's Elite First Order Stormtrooper to the test against Hasbro's Black Series counterpart.  

Plus Brock joins us for a review of the novel Aftermath, we look at Hot Toys' new Star Wars releases, and more on this episode of Star Wars Action News!
