For the past 100 weeks we have been coming to you and telling you what we're finding in stores. This week we TAKE YOU WITH US as we produce our first Video Podcast (Vodcast for the techno geeks out there). We have a "hidden camera" store report, and we also give you a virtual tour of the still under construction Sithsonian to let you see the progress we've had over the past two years.
The entire on-air staff of Star Wars Action News turned out. Brock puts down the book for a few minutes and gives us a presentation on three of his favorite collectibles. Scott goes on a rampage. Twice. And Jakob does what Jakob does best, make us laugh.
In addition Star Wars Action News listeners turn out to give you their videos. Reverend Strone takes you on an international toy run to stores that you've never heard of (okay, I've never heard of, you may be more cultured than I). The Paducah Imperials take us on an epic quest to find a McQuarrie Chewbacca figure with some interesting results. And TV star Greg the Bunny lets us peek into his room while he plays with his Star Wars toys.
JediLarryB also turns out to review a Star Wars pachinko machine and give us a quick tour of his theater.
And that's just the beginning...
You can see it all on your iPod or Zune. (Don't worry...if you're not video enabled and just want to listen to the show, there's an audio only version as well).
You can download this week's show from www.swactionnews.com in whichever format you want!
Also, if you're in San Diego or that area on Friday, July 27th at about 8 p.m. don't forget the Star Wars Action News San Diego Comic Con dinner! It will be held at the Rock Bottom Brewery at 4th and G streets, right by Horton Plaza. It is within walking distance of the ComicCon; however, if you don't feel like walking (after a day on your feet!) the shuttle to the Westin @ Horton Plaza should do the trick. We hope to see you there!
All this and much more on this week's 100th episode of Star Wars Action News!
