Recent Star Wars News
At the time of recording, it had been a slow news week where Star Wars was concerned. However, there are a few details worth mentioning. Remember those cool character posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story? Well, they might have infringed on another artist’s work. Also, The Last Jedi came up empty at the Academy Awards. What, if anything, does this mean for Star Wars?
That’s SO Wizard!
After the news, Jay is back with another edition of “That’s SO Wizard!” In this edition, Jay shares the details on a rather impressive piece of furniture suitable for an Emperor and then shares some C-3PO inspired fashion advice. Some of the products Jay discusses can be found at the following locations:
- Throne Room Chair from Regal Robot,
- New designs from Musterbrand, and
- Threepio inspired necklaces from The Kessel Runway.
Jay also shares the details of her own steampunk inspired Threepio cosplay and announces her latest “Wizard Award” recipient: Kristy Glasgow of The Kessel Runway.
Chewie and Lando
Once “That’s SO WIzard!” is complete, the scoundrels welcome Scott Murray from Assembly of Geeks to the show to discuss Chewie and Lando. What is it about the giant walking carpet that is so endearing to fans? Who really is Lando? A smuggler, honest business man, or a Rebel general? All of them? The “Hyperthetical” discusses all facets of everyone’s favorite Wookiee and smooth talking scoundrel.
The Golden Quiz Show
After the Chewie and Lando discussion, Jay quizzes Dennis, Darth Taxus, and Scott. In honor of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels 50th episode, or “Golden Episode,” Jay put together a quiz about everyone’s favorite protocol droid: C-3PO. Some of the questions are easy, and as for others, not so much. Tune in and see who wins.
Finally, the show turns to some listener feedback and community news in “Silence Fools!” In this edition, the Scoundrels read an email from a past recipient of Jay’s Wizard Award. After email, they react to a Tweet about one of the droids from Han Solo at Stars’ End and cover the results of the latest Twitter poll.
