With Season 3 announced not long ago at SDCC 2018, Brian tells us about the new season, talks to us about how an episode of the show gets made, the dizzying amount of prep and research to craft an episode, and explains what toy lines we may see in future episodes, as well as what we definitively won’t.
He also informs us about a part of the show which will be cut from the newest season, and how long he thinks the series will last.
Plus, Brian shows our viewers the holy grails of his toy collection for the first time ever on camera!

After much anticipation and too many teasers, the day has come – we finally have an official full trailer for “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
This new installment in the expanded lore of the Star Wars universe tells the tale of Chewbacca and Han Solo’s first encounter with Lando Calrissian and the Millenium Falcon, and how Han became the scoundrel we all know him as today.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” was directed by Ron Howard, and stars Alden Ehrenreich as Solo, alongside Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany. The film will be the second Star Wars anthology film, following the 2016 film “Rogue One.”
Our friends at RageWorks attended the illustrious Hasbro event during NY Toy Fair 2018, and saw many things we were not privy to. One of the most unique and certainly coolest things that popped up was this, the electronic “Ultimate Co-pilot Chewie” toy.
This version of Chewbacca stands 16 inches tall and features more than 100 sound and motion combinations. With signature Wookiee-talk back interaction, the Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie responds to external movements and sounds. Make a noise and the Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie will roar back! Fans can enjoy everything from naptime to pretending to fly with their Wookiee sidekick.
Check out this video to see what this wookiee can do!
