Happy New Year!!!! I realize we’re nearly a full month into 2015, but this is the first chance I’ve had to wish you, dear reader, my salutations for a prosperous and pleasant trip around the sun. Ok, enough of that, time to get down to business.

Anyone who knows me knows that toys and Star Wars are two of my favorite things. The toys came first, but the Star Wars followed soon after. Then came the greatest combination in the history of recreational plastic: Star Wars TOYS!!!!!  You’ve all heard the story (and if you haven’t here it is AGAIN): I got C-3PO on an Empire card, and the rest is history. My love of toys launched my podcast network, which you can find at, and my love of Star Wars has informed just about every other area of my life, INCLUDING my newest podcast, Bantha Banter: A Star Wars Chat Show.

How Jar Jar Binks and Ewoks Legitimately Fit Into Star Wars

How Jar Jar Binks & Ewoks Legitimately Fit Into Star Wars

As geeks, we are passionate about the things we love – especially movies & franchises.  With that comes the ability to be fanatical about things we dislike, and we can get really creative in expressing the hate.

In the Star Wars fandom, very few things can get a geek riled up more than the words “Ewoks” or “Jar Jar Binks”.  Sure enough, over the years I’ve seen the hatred for these two expressed in different ways, ranging from the Robot Chicken Star Wars special featuring Boba Fett mowing down Ewoks or a fan at a convention holding a serving platter with Jar Jar’s head on it.

MATT-AT: From Pages to Podcasts for the Star Hoppers of Star Wars

With the first issue of Marvel’s “Star Wars” on the shelves and a second- and third-printing soon to follow, readers like you are gearing up for next month’s debut of the publisher’s “Darth Vader” series, too.

For many readers, this is the first time they’ve experienced Marvel publishing “Star Wars” titles. For other, older readers for whom the late 1970s is not just passages in a history book, it’s a return of sorts.

The original Marvel run began in 1977 and lasted through 1986, encompassing 107 issues that, for the longest time, was the only entre to the Saga amid the Original Trilogy years until the Expanded Universe took root and proliferated. The tales in the series were wild, amazing and, in some cases, so shockingly weird that they’ve become absurdist masterpieces.
