Scott looks back on some of the crazy things that have happened at the Fantastic Fortress in 2015, including GANNIN's creation of a shirking ray, the development of our own comic-con, and the rise of our arch nemesis.
Justin Bolger joins the Geek Assembly today to discuss a couple of Star Wars lists that have been published -
Ranking the 50 best Star Wars Vehicles and The Dumbest Decisions Made by the Jedi Council.
We also discuss theupcoming fall TV schedule and what show's we'll be watching.
Other topics discussed today includeMary Jane's appearance in an upcoming Iron Man comic, the list of toy/boardgame movies that are coming to theaters and a new Back to the Future documentary.
All this and the fortress is visited by Colonel Snubb. He's there to inspect the building and irritate everyone.
It's our Season 3 premiere! Jeff and Scott discuss their Force Friday experiences and where they found the best stuff. Lauren Gallaway joins the Geek Assembly to discuss time travel in movies and television shows. Does time travel ever work in a story? What's more important - the science or the number of plot holes? We discuss it all and examine The Time Machine, Back to the Future, Terminator, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Flash and more.
Other topics this week include Force Friday's rarest collectible, a Goonies immersion theater experience, the upcoming C-3PO comic book and Chris Evans talking about his future with Marvel.
All this and the Geek Assembly meets its arch nemesis.
A special thanks to Steve Van Zandt for his work on this episode!
It's an episode about finding new geek movie interests, talking about classic toys and taking your OS to the movies. Our special geek assembly guest is Brian Stillman, the director and producer of Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys. He'll join us to discuss our mutual interest in toy fandom and some of the great moments of the film. We might even get him to tell us his favorite Star Wars toy of all time. It's a great geek chat that you won't want to miss.
Also, we share our knee-jerk reactions to the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer. Plus, an artificial intelligence expert gives his take on the movie Her, plans for more Lego movies, a new Fantastic Four reboot, when we might actually be getting Marty's shoes and a little controversy surrounding the Star Wars Rebels toy reveal.
Finally, how will GANNIN take ALISS to the movies?
The introduction of Windblade has stirred up some debate in the geek community about Transformer (or robot) gender. Does the creation of characters like Windblade and Arcee mean there are male and female bots? Or is it just another way they're adopting to human life? We discuss Windblade, robot gender and emotions in today's assembly.
Also, why don't we have hoverboards yet? What about flying cars (like Admiral 80s has)? Why hasn't Jaws made 19 movies? We discuss Back to the Future II's version of 2015 and compare it with today's reality.
We'll decide whether or not Carrie Fisher's "confirmation" about Episode VII holds water or if it's just more trash compactor garbage. Other topics includeGal Gadot's Wonder Woman contract, the Harry Potter park expansion, a Frozen sing-along and the Batman movie we'll get to see this year.
And Merchman announces a very popular geek TV series that he plans to watch for the first time!
