What was Luke's unfortunate nickname? Which Christmas catalog sold a life-sized X-Wing? Which 1990s commercial used original footage from The Empire Strikes Back? And what was Lucasfilm's official response to specific and shocking Episode 1 rumors? These are some of the fascinating facts found in Star Wars Galaxy Magazine. The magazine, which ran from 1994 to 1997, covered everything from the original trilogy films to the comics, novels, video games, collectibles, and events related to the Lucasfilm franchise. It also looked into the future of Star Wars, focusing on the upcoming releases, including the 1997 Special Editions and 1999's first prequel film. Each issue of Star Wars Galaxy Magazine was packed with interviews with the Lucasfilm-licensed artists, behind-the-scenes information about how Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi came together, and the collectibles produced during the first twenty years. Join host David Quinn as he shares the fascinating stories behind fifteen facts he learned from reading Star Wars Galaxy Magazine. If you enjoy Star Wars: Prototypes and Production, please: 1.

You may be familiar with Darth Vader's shocking reveal, but do you know the whole story? For more than forty years, moviegoers and Star Wars fans have reacted to one of cinema's greatest reveals of all time: five simple words that never made it into a script, but changed Lucas' saga and movie-making forever. And yet, two years before the film's release, Darth Vader actor Dave Prowse seemingly announced the reveal to the general public. How can this possibly be? Join host David Quinn for a fascinating, in-depth look into the reveal — how it was created and composed, whether it had truly remained a secret, the group that knew about it before the film's release, what Dave Prowse actually knew, and how it was received by audiences in 1980.

We've made it to the end of the 5th book. One more to go before we can look back on Phase 1 of New century as a whole, but coming to an end, always makes us reflect on what has been. What this ending means in context with the other endings. What new beginnings will spring from it. We wanted to discuss this story from the perspective of classical tragedy, and so we do. But we also question if it really fits, given the greater context of what kind of tragedy this is. How in some ways it is too real, too raw, too modern for us to view at a remove, as purely fiction. There is a certain poetic asynchronous feel to the fact that even though we've already covered so much New Century that this feels like a strange midpoint in the story. Steamheart, of course, will be huge and wide spanning. But it also makes sense if we put it in the right context. Secret Rooms was A New Hope , Arlington is The Empire Strikes Back, and Steamheart is the Return of the Jedi. Let Them Go - after all - is a separate prologue to the world, not this story. And Tiger's Eye, as wonderful as it is, is it's own self contained narrative that will just happen to be relevant to Steamheart.

Ian McDiramid began playing Palpatine in The Empire Strikes Back. This has allowed him to develop a rich understanding of Palpatine which transferred into a brilliant performance. Ian brought Darth Sidious to life. Within this interesting segment, we are zeroing in on Anakin's deleted scene. Basically Anakin shows up when Mace and Palpatine are fighting. This scene never made it to the movie, it was rewritten and reshot so we never got to see it. Listen as we enjoy these fantastic insights by Ian McDiramid followed by a full explanation of Anakin's deleted scene.  Learn more about your ad choices.

For the Astros, it's a chance for some vindication, after being baseball's public enemy number one for their sign stealing scheme in 2017. For the Braves, it's a chance to win their first World Series in a quarter century, and cap a stunning postseason run for a team that had the worst regular season record of any in the playoffs. Jeff Passan is in Houston, and breaks down everything you need to know for the Fall Classic.

Badass Agile
Episode 200 - The Most Important Lessons

Badass Agile

What are the key learnings that made me radically more effective?After 200 episodes, it's time to reflect!-First, some gratitude. Thank you to all who have listened to and supported the show. To all who have become members of The Forge, and supported me across multiple platforms, products and experiments. You have taught me everything I know, and I'm nowhere near done.-Next, let's think about which principles and guidance (which are really all my reflections and thought experiments( have worked with insane levels of resultsHere are the principles that have not only persisted over time; but represent a departure from common thinking and have proved MOST valuable to practitioners. Think of this as a short course in the Badass Agile way.1. At the core of becoming badass is your ability to create your own reality. You can add value in a way that is fulfilling and native to you; being a truly unique voice. You can create whatever you want in terms of team performance or outcomes. Dream big and refuse to see the world as others see it.2. The beauty of Agile rests in a single truth - consistency over time. This trumps massive effort, long hours, job titles, degrees and certification, book knowledge, expensive consultants, and an ever-expanding list of tips, techniques, and contradictory best practices. MAKE SMALL PROMISES, AND KEEP THEM. The smaller the better. The more consistent, the better.3. Toughness still matters. No one can hand you safety, you have to claim it. Persisting through difficult times, ignoring haters and rejection, and laser-like focus for just a few minutes a day (see #2) is literally everything.4. If Agile doesn't grow past tech, it will die there - probably really soon.5. Agile represents change. If you can't understand human beings, see the meaning behind their actions and reactions, and effectively influence them to support and contribute to the change, none of this will work6. Agile, Scrum, Kanban, etc are chalk line frameworks. Dogmatic application and rejection of new or different thinking is as fatal in work as it is in politics or religion. How you apply these processes to a problem or team will never be the same way twice. Admit you are almost always wrong and know basically nothing and you will have graduated to Master Coach.7. Everything you know about Agile is already in The Empire Strikes Back. Re-watch the middle section twice a year and you'll be really OK. "That is why you fail" is everything.8. If Agile doesn't free us from the tyranny of long days and nights, especially right up on release day, we've learned nothing and we deserve to have it all burned down and start over. To quote Scrooged - "mankind should have been my business". 9. There is no right way or wrong way. There is probably something you're doing too much of, and something you're not doing enough of. Heed the wisdom of 'start/stop/continue'. Everything good comes from balancing and then rebalancing. Everything is always changing.10. You can never transform everything 100% all at once. that's not how you build muscle, learn a skill, or upgrade the ship of Theseus. (Look it up.) Agile teaches us to prioritize. Let's make sure we learn that lesson in all we do.11. Certification is education, not certification.12. How much you know about agile or scrum is meaningless. How well you create value is everything. 13. Being badass really means painting strong pictures and moving toward them without hesitation or apology. Your results in the real world are all that matter, not the opinions, thoughts, complaints, or criticisms of others. They are normal and expected, but have no bearing on the impact you make in this life. Believe otherwise and be prepared to regret it at the end of your life. Be massive and limitless.14. "Most people live lives of quiet desperation", (Thoreau). This may seem a little negative, but what i take from it is that most people welcome a leader who seems to know what they want and how to get it. Be that hero. That's the easiest way to live a life of significance, service and impact.***JOIN THE FORGE***Sign up for more info about our online leadership immersion experience.https://badassagile.com/the-forge/******Follow on CLUBHOUSE:https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/badass-agileDon't forget to join us in the Badass Agile Listener Lounge on Facebook for member exclusives, livestreams and previews!https://www.facebook.com/groups/badasslistenerlounge/Follow The LinkedIn Page:https://www.linkedin.com/showcase/badass-agileWe're also on YouTube!

EPISODE 156 - PETER SUSCHITZKY- Cinematographer Team Deakins sits down with cinematographer Peter Suschitzky (THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, DEAD RINGERS) for a great conversation. We learn that Peter started shooting at a very young age and was printing images in the darkroom at the age of 6! Peter tells us stories from working with the great directors John Boorman, Peter Watkins and David Cronenberg. Peter tells us about interviewing with George Lucas for Star Wars, why he hadn't seen a single one of Cronenberg's films before his interview for Dead Ringers, and his collaborations with Peter Watkins. Peter believes it is easy to fall into formulaic filmmaking if you work too much, and to him that is the enemy of creativity. We discuss still photography as it is a huge part of Peter's life, and how to Peter, capturing a good still is very difficult (perhaps more so than cinematography), though satisfying when it works well.

The suits seek declaratory relief that these blockbuster characters are ineligible for copyright termination as works made for hire. If Marvel loses, Disney would have to share ownership of characters worth billions.   Marvel Studios Has Over 30 Projects in Active Development https://www.cbr.com/marvel-studios-30-plus-projects-in-development/ When veteran Marvel Studios producer Victoria Alonso was asked by 221radio if the company had 35 projects in the works, Alonso laughingly replied, "We are currently working on 31 projects, don't add 4 more, please." If that sounds like a lot to take on at once, Alonso agrees. Yet, the producer went on to assure fans that the studio is prepared for some hit-or-miss projects so long as they stay true to the human characters and interconnectedness of the MCU.   "It is a question about how are we handling multiple plates in the air at the same time," Alonso continued, "and the biggest thing is that sometimes the plates fall, and, you know, what are you going to do then? We want people to understand that the idea that we have, to tell these connected stories, it is important that the world knows that the characters we create, their stories have to do with how humans interact with each other."   Disney+   Marvel's What If…? team reveals season 1 finale intel: There's 'a bigger plan' AC Bradley Admits … We kill Tony a LOT https://ew.com/tv/marvel-what-if-ac-bradley-bryan-andrews-episode-8/ Season 1 was originally meant to be 10 episodes, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic one of those episodes had to be pushed to season 2, and Bradley says the delayed episode helped balance the other, darker stories. "Our 10th episode was a more light, upbeat Tony Stark episode," she says. "I noticed on Twitter we're getting a lot of crap for killing Tony a lot. He has become the Kenny of the What If…? universe by accident."   The episodes have mirrored the comics by ending on cliffhangers that each tease a larger story. And it seems that all of those threads may actually come together in the season's final episode. It's also possible that the already announced second season could follow up on certain stories, while new methods of remotely making animated series may help the show to avoid the issues the pandemic has posed and craft longer episodes. For now, however, the show does still have one limit: the MCU.   What If...? Episodes Are Shorter than Planned Because of COVID https://deadline.com/2021/09/what-if-marvel-series-a-c-bradley-podcast-interview-1234843778/ https://www.cbr.com/marvel-what-if-short-runtime-covid/ "What If...? comics ended abruptly and really dark to prove that the main timeline is the better timeline," Bradley said. "We've used that as our reason to cut stories off a little bit shorter. All these episodes could have been 45 minutes. Some of the animatics were 35 minutes, but due to animation and Covid, we cut them a little bit shorter than we would have liked."   Disney+ Pushes Ms. Marvel to 2022 https://variety.com/lists/marvel-studios-release-schedule/ https://www.cbr.com/disney-plus-ms-marvel-2022/ https://twitter.com/adambvary/status/1440844586016927744 Variety Senior Entertainment Writer Adam B. Vary recently posted an update regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe's release schedule. "I've confirmed what was obvious to most Marvel Studios observers: [Ms. Marvel] has moved from a late 2021 release on Disney Plus to 2022," Vary tweeted.   This is not the first report indicating Ms. Marvel's debut shift. TVLine's Matt Webb Mitovich previously suggested the series had been delayed until early a 2022 delay. Film insider Amit Chaudhari recently stated that the series was set to hit Disney+ in February.     Disney+ Removes Hayley Atwell's Agent Carter Short Film https://thedirect.com/article/disney-plus-removal-hayley-atwell-agent-carter-short-film Marvel Studios' Agent Carter One-Shot was completely removed from Disney+, seemingly across all territories.   In mid-September 2021, Marvel Studios' Agent Carter One-Shot was added to Disney+ within its own special section/page . Beforehand, the short could only be found in Iron Man 3 's EXTRAS section; Agent Carter has been removed there as well.   There doesn't seem to be any clear indication as to why Disney+ would remove a section solely dedicated to the Agent Carter One-Shot.   The One-Shot originally appeared on the 2013 DVD and digital release of Iron Man 3 and gave some brief insight into how Peggy eventually started up what viewers knew as SHIELD. From there, the Agent Carter ABC show was also born, spanning two seasons on the television network .   On its own, the One-Shot exemplifies the brilliance of Atwell's character; it reminds viewers of why she is now a returning force to the franchise and re-emphasizes her importance to MCU lore as a whole .   It's possible that its removal could have been nothing more than in preparation for bigger and better things to come for Peggy; maybe the streaming service pulled the gun and wants to highlight her more so down the line, possibly aligning with the Season 1 finale of What If...? .   Video Games   https://gamerant.com/marvel-vs-capcom-2-disney-capcom-revival-discussion-report/ This campaign to bring back Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 was started by Maximilian Dood, a YouTuber whose content revolves around fighting games. He started the campaign earlier this year under "#FREEMVC2" in order to gather support to hopefully re-release the crossover game onto modern systems. This caught the attention of Digital Eclipse, a studio that has worked with both Disney and Capcom to remaster some of its old games. Studio head Mike Mika showed his support for re-releasing the game, along with giving the game a proper remaster treatment. In a recent interview with Shacknews, Mika brings further thoughts to the table regarding how this re-release could be possible.   PlayComics Episode 91: Marvel vs Capcom 2 New Age of Heroes with Trent Seely (Continuity Nod) https://playcomics.com/marvel-vs-capcom-2-new-age-of-heroes-with-trent-seely-continuity-nod/     FEEDBACK [1:08:24]   TWITTER   https://twitter.com/LegendsofSHIELD/status/1441009180190642177 Legends S.H.I.E.L.D. @LegendsofSHIELD Describe this week's @whatifofficial episode "What If...Thor Were An Only Child?" in one word.

I think I'm officially over this series.   Beard Watch 2021 — 09/25/2021 Space-god frat boy holds intergalactic kegger does not make for a good story to me.   StargatePioneer — 09/25/2021 Overall the series is a light hearted campy ride that hits some weeks and misses in other episodes. Not to mention a few tragic stories along the way too. But I certainly would not take any of it too seriously. This week's episode especially was meant more as a fun dalliance than any other with events that could only be told via a cartoon IMO.   But all this is from a guy who like The Phantom Menace, dislikes Empire Strikes Back and is often wrong. So I might just be drinking the cool aid.   Erasure (Too Lazy !!) — 09/26/2021 That's on this was one of my favorite episodes too along with T'Challa Star Lord. And wow someone else who likes the Phantom Menace and Empire not so much Others do exist   TPM is one of my highest ranked SW films while ESB is one of my lowest.   Beard Watch 2021 — Today at 5:34 PM Interesting finale.

The hosts are pondering a question of ethics - how should pursuing our hobby influence our public behaviour? Moving swiftly on, there are a plethora of new acquisitions from the team this month, and some great shout-outs from around the world wide web, including an excellent new collection room, and an unexpected Canadian discovery. Action Figure Face-Off features two Droids, a Gunner, and a smooth talking Smuggler. Who will emerge victorious? The lads discuss all the latest goings-on in the collecting world including a retrospective of the recent collecting event Echo Base Live, and interviews with the traders, punters, organisers and special guests. Jason and Spoons have paid a visit to Milton Keynes for the grand opening of Jason Joiner's National Film and Sci-Fi Museum, and Rich catches up with Ron Salvatore to delve into Micro Collection minutiae. The licensee section sees the boys revealing their childhood reading habits and favourite literature, and moving on to look at British publisher Sphere, who released the paperback novels and tie-ins for Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. The books themselves, and the associated store displays and related materials, are all featured. The feature interview this month is with Star Wars artist, collector, and costumer Marsha Parkins, talking about her influences, her artwork for Topps and other publishers, attending events, and her love for that galaxy far, far away. All this and the regular banter and bluster, look out for the podcast in the normal places.

It's almost the end of September, which means Sony has revealed the free games available next month for PlayStation Plus subscribers. On PS5, we're getting Hell Let Loose, and for PS4, there's PGA Tour 2K21 and Mortal Kombat X. Hell Let Loose is a brand new World War 2-themed FPS with large 100-player battles and an RTS-inspired meta game. It was released on PC this summer and is now making its way to consoles. PGA Tour 2K21 features 15 licensed PGA Tour courses and a robust player and course creator. Mortal Kombat X was originally released back in 2015, and we gave it a glowing review, calling it the best Mortal Kombat game, period. PS Plus subscribers can grab these games starting October 5th. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 may not be hitting PlayStation 5 consoles until 2023, but Marvel is already teasing the game's darker storyline. On the This Week in Marvel podcast, Marvel Games executive Bill Rosemann compared the sequel to another famous sequel: The Empire Strikes Back. The first game did a great job of setting up this new version of Peter Parker, and the challenges he faces balancing his responsibilities as Spider-Man with his real-life identity as Parker. Now it's time for the sequel to tackle some of Spidey's more complex storylines. But he won't be alone, as Miles Morales will be there at his side taking on Venom and most likely Kraven the Hunter. And finally, the Nintendo 64 and IGN turn 25 today. Time flies, huh? It didn't feel that long ago when we were using dial up internet to look up cheats for GoldenEye on IGN64.com.

By the time 2002 rolled around, people were already pretty disenchanted with what would become known as the Star Wars Prequels. 1999's Phantom Menace left much to be desired, but there was great hope Attack of the Clones would turn things around. After all, it's the Empire Strikes Back of this particular trilogy, but as we all know, it's nowhere near as good. Yet, there's no denying that, for us, this movie is better than we remembered.
