Geekfest Rants Ep.329: Star Wars Galactic Nights – 92 Backs/Last 17

Today on GeekFest Rants we visit Disney’s Galactic Nights. A one night event for all things Star Wars at Hollywood Studios. Join Carlos as he attends a special panel previewing the upcoming 2019 Star Wars park expansion, Galaxy’s Edge.

Then we take a final look at Kenner’s 92-Backs/Last 17 wave of Star Wars action figures.

This marked the end of an era in Star Wars action figure wave collecting and the hardest one to find. Your collection is not truly complete until you have these figures.

The Mr. Sensational Gino Vega Podcast Ep.9: Atari 2600/Sears Video Arcade Memories Plus Tons More!

Hey everyone, at long last the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast is BACK! My podcasting was seriously derailed by the Northern CA fires in October, but I finally managed to get things together and come up with another installment of The World’s Most Mundane Podcast.

That’s right, we’re BACK, baby! And that means another hour or so of rambling, tangential talk—this time somewhat centered around my Grandma’s recent funeral and memories I have of playing with my Atari 2600/Sears Video Arcade as a kid. Check it out if you’re so inclined, and don’t forget to visit www.iseerobots.com for all the great content on the I See Robots Radio Network!
