EPISODE 52: SOLO A STAR WARS STORY REACTION SHOW

Rio Cover.jpg

Dan and Mac both saw Solo: A Star Wars Story on opening night and raced home in under 12 parsecs to record their initial thoughts on the latest entry into Star Wars movies!  Short take? We loved it!  Join us for a fun discussion as we geek out about that big reveal, Beckett and his crew, and of course the first meeting of the scoundrel and the Wookiee!  Big, big thanks to Kendall Schroeder for his awesome Duran Duran/Rio Durante album mashup! It’s a fun, fun image that even caught the attention of Solo director, Ron Howard!      Get your own Rio/Durante Durante t-shirt here!

 

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY MERCHANDISE RELEASE WEEKEND

The weekend of April 13, 2018 marked the "official" release date for Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise.  It was the first Star Wars movie during the Disney Era of Star Wars that didn't include a big launch campaign and it proved to be hit or miss for most collectors depending on what part of the world they were from. Funko POP figures were plentiful on both sides of the border but Hasbro 3.75 figures were virtually missing up in Canada except for a small amount of overpriced Vintage Collection at EB Games.  6-Inch Black Series figures seemed to available in most US locations, but again, there were many stores that didn't have any Solo products on shelves.   We've got photos of the "launch" from Massachusetts in the US to Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  As you'll see in the photos, it was feast or famine.
