Episode 423: Live from the CBR Bar at C2E2!
April 28, 2014
This past weekend saw the largest comic convention in Chicago -- Reed Pop's C2E2! Saturday night Marjorie, Arnie, and several members of the Star Wars Action News family got together to talk about the convention, their Star Wars celebrity encounters, and their collectible finds!
But the past two weeks have been full of news for Star Wars fans and collectors alike. Listen in to hear about the announcements of new toys and collectibles exclusive to the Disney Stores. From new scales of action figures to vehicles, plushes, mugs, and more, the gang rates their interest in the new collectible lines.
Also on this show, the news came down while everyone was at C2E2 that Star Wars canon has rebooted. The books, games, comics, and stories that formerly made up the "Star Wars Expanded Universe" have been rebranded "Star Wars Legends"--alternate, non-canonical, tales of the galaxy far, far away. But coming now is a new status quo, a new canon, and four new novels that fit into it. Hear the group reaction on this week's show.
With a discussion on if Star Wars is a kid's movie, a very special coin, and much more, it's all in this week's Star Wars Action News convention coverage!
