It’s the back to school special as Jason and Gabe join 3-PO, R2, Zilnor and a very grumpy Han Solo and learn all about colors and shapes with the weird and mostly forgotten 1984 Read Along Book, Star Wars Adventures in Colors and Shapes! Han needs Fulstar plates to make the Falcon go on a supply run and 3-PO has the most frustrating day ever and he tries to help Han. When does this book take place in the timeline? Is it in Pablo’s book collection? It’s possibly the greatest Star Wars adventure ever told and Blast Points is here to help you through it. And it has special appearances from GREEDO! and a HOOJIB!?!
Plus there is Episode 9 director talk, who WE think will be behind the camera on that one, Rebels season 4 trailer stuff, inappropriate Chewbacca & so much more! Look for it tomorrow!
So pull that Fulstar plate off your back and listen to Blast Points today!!

A not so long time ago, Jason & Gabe had the great idea of watching the Ben Burtt penned Droids animated series primetime special, The Great Heep. Having loved it and talked about Master Mungo Baobab in just about every Blast Points episode afterwards, they decided that it would be awesome to go ahead here and do a full commentary for the entire Baobab arc of four Droids animated episodes. Almost ninety minutes later, they are wondering if they made the right decision. Join them this week as they struggle to know what’s going on, figure out just who is talking, how this all makes any sense, do bug man voices and struggle to not drift into the forever sleep. It’s the Treasure of the Hidden Planet and it’s definitely one of Star Wars’ strangest moments ever.
So ride your space horse to the Rune Sea and get Lin-D the comedy droid out & try to to celebrate the love with Blast Points!
