On this episode of Star Wars Action News, hear a review of the new Kotobukiya Bishoujo Mara Jade statue, details on J.W. Rinzler’s Star Wars Storyboards books, and find out how to take the randomness out of getting the Funko Vans shoes figures from Journeys!
Mara Jade was instantly a fan favorite character. When she first graced the pages of the Star Wars expanded universe in Timothy Zahn’s 1991 book Heir to the Empire she was embraced by Star Wars fans. It wasn’t long before the figure also appeared in video games, action figures, the Return of the Jedi Radio Drama and more. But now with the Star Wars Expanded Universe being rebranded “Legends” Mara Jade’s canonical status is uncertain and fans who’ve followed the character for over twenty years cannot look forward to new Mara Jade adventures. However fans can own a statue of Mara Jade, perhaps for the last time! Announced before the Expanded Universe reboot, Kotobukiya’s Mara Jade Bishoujo has recently been released as a companion to their previous (also EU) statue of Jaina Solo. On this Star Wars Action News podcast listen to find out if this statue is a gem you should own!
Also on this podcast, hosts Marjorie and Arnie went Star Wars shoe shopping at Journeys. With Vans new Star Wars line of footwear, plus two exclusive statues from Funko, tune in to find out how they got both and which are better–the shoes or the statues!
