Star WarsA New Hope was the first mainstream movie to be dubbed into the Navajo language, and fans at Celebration can see a behind-the-scenes documentary on how that came to be, created especially for the event.

Following the never-before-seen documentary footage, and a Q&A session with key players from the Navajo Nation and the film industry, Star WarsA New Hope will be screened in the Navajo dub – a treat for Star Wars movie fans, and fans of languages, and of course for anyone who speaks Navajo!

Episode 47: Sticker Shock

realmrecap_news

The holidays are over but that hasn’t stopped the fireworks this week as a lot of news and confirmations surrounding Hasbro’s plans for 2015 have come to light. The big news this week was several lists of proposed product for The Force Awakens made their way online. Although nothing incredibly revelatory, there does seem to be no holding back in terms of merchandise. Target also gets a large spotlight this week as they’ve started implementing a new price for The Black Series that has caused quite a response from collectors. Is this an isolated event or will other retailers follow suit? Sideshow news this week is light but there is something they have in common with Hasbro – a delay of product. Celebration Anaheim announcements are starting to gear up with the reveal of an new set of pins and the debut of Smuggler’s Bounty audio drama from Kyle Newman. Plus, Flyguy and I run down our latest reviews and acquisitions from the past week! All this and much more on Episode 47 of The Realm Recap!

Episode 431: Exclusive Showdown

Star-Wars-Action-News-Enhanced-Podcast-Feed2-300x225

Marjorie and Arnie give a hands-on review of Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con International exclusives, Johnathan runs down the Toys R Us AT-ST set, and Steve the Gingerprince reports in from the London Film & Comic Con!

The irony of San Diego Comic-Con is that while everyone rushes to buy the exclusives, there’s no time at the con to really look at them! Now Marjorie and Arnie are back home and have unpacked their SDCC shipment, and are ready to tell you if Hasbro’s 6-Inch Jabba the Hut exclusive, or the SDCC/Toys R Us exclusive Cantina Showdown set, was worth the trouble.

Also on this week’s show Steve the Gingerprince reports in from the London Film and Comic Con. With a not-too-surprising number of Star Wars guests (given where Episode VII is filming) and tons of toys, listen in to find out about that European event.

With Johnathan telling us what’s hitting stores, a look at the Star Wars Celebration pin set, and more, it’s all in this episode of Star Wars Action News!

Star Wars Celebration Diorama Project

upgheader

Star Wars Celebration VII will be in Anaheim in 2015, and some of our forum customizers have their eyes set on displaying a massive diorama there for all to see.  We worked to do this before in 2007 for Celebration IV so there is precedent, but these projects take a lot of coordination and effort.  The payoff is great though to see it all come together.

Do you have what it takes to join in?  We’re still in the very early stages of this project, and encourage all customizers to check it out and see if you’d like to take part in this after the jump!  We also encourage for all diorama builders out there to offer their suggestions to help make this project a success.
