Episode 99: 2001 -- A Figural Odyssey, plus Celebration Europe coverage!
July 16, 2007


Show Notes

We Americans had fun on our soil last May but now fans overseas got to have their fun as well, much closer to home this time! The first European Star Wars Celebration was held this past weekend and Star Wars Action News' own GingerPrince was there with his wife. They attended an outdoor screening of A New Hope, met Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian with mixed results, and had a grand old time. They detail it all in this week's Star Wars Action News.

Plus Marjorie and Arnie look back at 2001 and discuss some of the stranger figures made available during that time, some original creations of the Power of the Jedi line.

Finally Scott from Tulsa joins us in the studio to debate the merits of the Gentle Giant pre-order and raffle systems as well as the Entertainment Earth Mystery 14 pack.

All this and much more on this week's 99th episode of Star Wars Action News!
