Star Wars Roll Out Episode 3

The first Star Wars Roll Out story came to a conclusion with the 3rd episode that was released yesterday, amidst all the exciting D23 news.
After the third Roll Out episode we can observe that each episode seems to be doing worse than the one before. There are fewer comments as well for each episode. So who knows how much of a future this web series has. It’s cute, it’s fun, it has its charm, but it doesn’t seem to excite all that many people, in fact a good percentage of the comments wonders why no new Galaxy of Adventures episodes are released instead. Anyway, in the 3rd episode BB-8 and friends defeat the big bad spider creature. You can watch the conclusion of BB-8’s jungle adventure by clicking on the screenshot below!

Roll Out Episode 2 Has Been Released

And the adventure continues… if last week’s first episode seemed to end very abruptly, this week’s episode shows us why. Apparently Roll Out will spread a single story across several episodes. So BB-8’s jungle adventure continues. He meets a shapeshifting critter which scares him and while on the run he gets attacked by a giant spider that wants to eat him. All the while the droid friends from last week are on their way to rescue BB-8. This episode also ends on a cliffhanger, so more is yet to come most certainly.

The first episode has 16,742 clicks after one week. The new episode is at 2,520. I wonder what Lucasfilm’s expectations for this web series are.

Google Trends For Star Wars Characters

After the recent article about Star Wars trending on Google, I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at how various Star Wars characters are trending on Google, both old and new. The results may make some people happy, others not so much, some of the results are certainly surprising! Some spoilers: Russia loves Kylo Ren! Japan loves droids! And Jar Jar Binks is trending more on Google than Finn, Poe or Rose, even in 2019. How is any of that possible? Click through for a few comparisons between Star Wars Characters!

Sphero Will Not Renew Its Disney License

As tech magazine The Verge reports Sphero will not renew it’s Disney license when it expires in 2019. This means Sphero BB-8, R2-D2 and other licensed toys/gadgets will cease production. Sphero will sell off remaining stock and app support is guaranteed for the next two years.
According to Sphero demand for the toys simply dried up. It was very high when BB-8 and his comrades were released, but, at least according to Sphero, every fan who wants a BB-8 already has one. In other words, no one bought the toys anymore.
What I would like to add: while Sphero is certainly telling the truth, they may not reveal the full reason for not renewing the Disney license: the fees. Now, we don’t know how much Sphero had to pay for its three year license deal, but it’s very likely that the fees were quite high that renewing the license and waiting for Episode IX may have been simply unprofitable for them. So no more Star Wars droids or Lightning McQueens from Sphero.

So, after SIX hours of futzing with Force Link 2.0 and trying to get it installed, sixty-six and two-thirds percent of the Rose (First Order Disguise)/BB-8/BB-9E Two-Packs set still have “FIRMWARE UPDATE REQUIRED!” errors. We’re shaking our heads. Oh, and the figure’s say the wrong things if you use the first Force Link.

It’s probably safe to assume that there is going to be a six-pack of 12-Inch Figures for every new Star Wars film coming out. The TARGET exclusive BB-8/Captain Poe Dameron/Rey (Jedi Training)/First Order Stormtrooper Executioner/Kylo Ren/First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader set serves a purpose, but there is a lot of repetition here.
