Fun Stuff from The Rebel Yell Episode Discussing Twin Suns

Posted by Steve

On our most recent episode of Rebel Yell, Erich, Teresa and Steve were joined by author John Jackson Miller to discuss all the happenings and things said on a pivotal episode in Star Wars canon.  A few things were mentioned that may be worth checking out…and in turn supporting the shows.  First, John plugged the newest collection of his Star Wars The Old Republic series. This is Marvel’s reprinting with additional material that was left out of earlier collections of this series.  John was referring to Volume 2, but it is worth noting that Volume 1 is available as well.


John also has a new Star Trek series out. (We make exceptions on our no Star Trek Rule for special guests) The trilogy is called Prey and all three books are available now.

 

Finally, we mentioned a video by our friend @Stuffedy .  He’s done it again, taking some points of discussion from our previous episode and made a video of Lobot listening to The BeeGees.   Check it out below and give Stuffedy a thumbs up and a nice comment over on YouTube.

Affiliate Update: Some Fun Stuff At Entertainment Earth

We here in the GOLiverse have perused Entertainment Earth and spied some pretty cool things that you may want to add to your collection. (Of course this is a glorified advertisement, but check out how nifty these things are.)

First, we have to give Star Wars some love.  Since, The Force Awakens collection, Hasbro has made it a habit to release some figures in mult-packs.  In the case of The Force Awakens, there was the four pack that included a repacked Finn, Rey, BB-8, and a new character – Maz Kanata.  So essentially, you would pay $25 for one figure and a few accessories.  For this release Jyn Erso is the only repacked character, so it’s a really cool set. Given what has already been released, Saw’s forces are shaping up nicely as far as the characters that are available out there.  Here is the description from Entertainment Earth about this set: Celebrate the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on home video with this commemorative including four figures from a pivotal scene in the film. This pack features three exclusive characters and a special collectors’ edition package. Enjoy Jyn Erso, Saw Gerrera, Edrio Two Tubes, and an Imperial Hovertank Pilot with cool accessories.  Click on the picture to head to EE and order it for your collection!

While we’re talking Star Wars collecting we have to talk Black Series.  If you collect the six inch series, Entertainment Earth has a few options that you may be having a hard time finding on shelves at a retailer near you.  First, two standouts from Rogue One are now available in the six inch series Baze Malbus and Chirut Imwe.  Click their pictures to order them!


 

 

 

 

Moving away from Star Wars we have to throw a bit of professional wrestling in here.  New at Entertainment Earth is the WWE Defining Moments Ric Flair.  This is Flair as he appeared the night he wrestled his last match in WWE against The HeartBreak Kid Shawn Michaels.  I actually wrote a little blog about it way back when which you can read here. This figure is pretty cool. If you collect wrestling action figures, then this is a must have. Click the picture to make the purchase.

As much as we love Marvel, there is something cool from DC available now for preorder.  We love Supergirl around here and this is a great figure that brings a legendary look to the Girl of Steel.  Interchangeable hands, and a head with heat vision make this a cool display figure.  Click the…you know…

 

Finally something on the cuter side.  You know we love Disney around these parts and Disney has really stepped up their collectibles game in the past several years.  With the premiere of the new Ducktales cartoon in sight, excitement is building to get back to Ducksburg and hang with our three favorite feathered nephews.  Available for preorder now is the Huey, Dewey, and Louie Metal Figuration set.  Here is Entertainment Earth’s Description: Herocross’s interpretation of Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck perfectly captures their active and lively personality, with the sense of mischief fully preserved in the interchangeable faces, beaks and eyes. Furthermore, the inclusion of various accessories allows for the perfect replication of their activities in the comics. The Hybrid metal technology provides a robust structure for the products, facilitating for a wide variety of poses. This 3-pack set of all three bothers include the following accessories:
8x Interchangeable hands
3x Interchangeable beaks
3x Interchangeable faces
1x Soccer ball
Baseball bat and ball
2x Fishing rods and fish

Click the pic, order the merch.

If none of these items tickle your fancy, check out the link to Entertainment Earth and do some shopping there. They have practically everything you would want for your collecting joys.  Thanks for supporting the GOLiverse.

On the most recent episode of Rebel Yell Steve and Erich were joined by Shazbazzar from Techno Retro Dads. During their discussion of the episode “Through Imperial Eyes” Steve put out a request to the listeners. Our friend from the Land Down Under @Stuffedy on Twitter came through in spades! Watch his work below.

Thanks so much to @Stuffedy! This has given my so much happiness today! We hope you all enjoy the fun we had with Star Wars Rebels and understand it comes from a place of love for all things Star Wars.
