    Andor Actors, Hasbro Toys, Bad Batches, Pewter Droids - The Blockade Runner Podcast #185

    This week's episode features a look at recent Andor casting rumors, new toy reveals from Hasbro, Ryan's impressions of the Jedi: Fallen Order next-gen update, and The Bad Batch episode 7, "Battle Scars." That sounds like a lot, but it's really just a prelude to the triumphant return of precious metal pewter and its grip on the Star Wars collecting community.

Pure Positivity from and for Star Wars Fans

Great podcast from two guys who always seem to find the best in everything in a galaxy far, far away. A refreshing change from the more snarky, cynical attitudes found on many other SW podcasts.
