Marjorie and Arnie are joined by more members of the Star Wars Action News family to talk Star Wars Collecting at C2E2!
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!
Another week has passed and it’s time for our look back at the latest news in Star Wars collecting. On this special episode of The Realm Recap, we “recap” our trip to the Disney Star Wars Event held at Disney Studios & Disney Store Headquarters, the newest collectible news and the impact of the reclassification of POST-ROTJ EU material. Click on through to check out the latest episode and feel free to subscribe to our channel and leave suggestions on what you’d like to see covered on the show.
Also, if you prefer not to look at our ugly mugs, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.

The Padawan Menace video, The Old Republic game, the Fate of the Jedi novel series, and so much more! In the third installment of our 2011 year in review show, Arnie, Nathan and Brock look back on how 2011 expanded the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is continuing to expand beyond the core game and into novels and comics. Del Rey Books has already published two novels in the Old Republic timeline, Fatal Alliance and Deceived, and last year announced that a third Old Republic novel was to be written by Drew Karpyshyn, Principal Writer at BioWare, and author of the Darth Bane series of Star Wars™ novels.
Now the name of that novel can be revealed: Revan. As well as exploring what happened to Revan after Knights of the Old Republic, in this novel readers will learn who the Sith Emperor is in the time of the Old Republic, where he came from and how he has held onto power for so long.
Visit the Star Wars: The Old Republic website for an exclusive Q&A with Drew Karpyshyn on Revan.
