Episode 255 Part 2: San Diego ComicCon International 2010 Star Wars Wrap-Up
This past weekend ComicCon International in San Diego made news from announcements of the cast of the new Avengers film to someone being stabbed in the face over a seating dispute. However Star Wars news has remained mostly under the radar, overshadowed by the looming Star Wars Celebration 5 just two short weeks away. But despite the lack of focus, SDCC held lots of information for Star Wars collectors, from panels to the exhibit room floor. On this second part of Star Wars Action News' SDCC 2010 Coverage, Marjorie and Arnie review all the panels and floor offerings, including the new Family Guy Star Wars spoof, the book Star Wars Year by Year, and product previews from Sideshow, Gentle Giant, Super 7, Acme Archives, Her Universe, Kotobukiya, Lego, Museum Replicas, Hallmark, and even more! Plus the hosts have THREE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS in this podcast, with Hasbro's Darryl DePriest, head of the Star Wars toy line, as well as representatives of Hallmark discussing their new collectibles and ornaments, and Gentle Giant talking about the 12" figures, other product offerings, and Slave Leias. And after you listen to this week's Star Wars Action News, be sure to stop by the web site at swactionnews.com to view their photo galleries of all the items discussed!
