Episode 78 – Star Wars on QVC!

Take a trip back to 1992 as Jason & Gabe take a look at the fascinating world of Star Wars QVC specials! In the early 1990s when Star Wars stuff was as rare as a carded Yak Face, the closest you could get to a Celebration like fan experience was sometimes tuning into Star Wars night on the home shopping channel QVC! There host and super fan Steve Bryant would interview guests like Steve Sansweet and in the episode we look at, Mark Hamill. In between selling Star Wars 15th anniversary sweatshirts and Star Wars film reel suspenders, Mark talks about the prequels, calls from Star Wars fans and he gets a call from a guy named Chip he went to high school with AND says if he’d ever be interested in being in a NEW Star Wars movie!!!
PLUS before all that we talk about Battlefront 2 and those interesting Han Solo movie crew/crue shirts!!! So get out your phone, stay on the line and celebrate the love with Blast Points!!
