September 02, 2014



Show Notes

Brock reviews the new Star Wars novel A New Dawn, Marjorie and Arnie review Black Series Wave 4, plus reports from Wizard World Chicago and Gen Con!

Last Spring it was announced that the Star Wars canon was taking a new direction.  To pave way for the upcoming Episode VII as well as the Rebels TV series the previous Star Wars "Expanded Universe" was reclassified as Star Wars Legends, wiping the slate clean for a new era of Star Wars stories.  That begins today with the release of A New Dawn, the Star Wars Rebels tie-in novel by John Jackson Miller.  In this episode of Star Wars Action News Brock joins us with a review of this first novel in a new age of Star Wars fiction.

​Also on this week's show, Marjorie and Arnie review Hasbro's 4th wave of Black Series 3.75-inch figures.  From Dagobah Luke to Yoda to Toryn Farr, watch the video to see hands-on reviews of these collector-oriented figures!

With reports from Wizard World Chicago and GenCon, eating fresh with Rebels, and much more, it's all in this episode of Star Wars Action News!
