May the 4th Road Trip
On May 4th, host Guy Klender and producer Alan took the show on the road in Sideshow’s ‘Vandalorian’. They drove to Scum and Villainy Cantina in Hollywood where they gave away prizes, showed our audience around the venue, and celebrated the geekiest intergalactic holiday around in the ultimate Star Wars™ style.
To those of you who attended, we hope you had an amazing time. To those of you who didn’t get the chance to be there live, check out some snapshots right here.

The Comics Haul
There was a special episode of The Comics Haul, a Sideshow-produced livestream and podcast that airs every Wednesday from 4 PM to 5 PM PT, focusing on weekly comics news, reviews, and more. The stream on May 5 explored comics from across the galaxy, with all your favorite characters, planets, and more.
We had a BLAST with Tuesday’s episode of Trivial Cahoots. Audience members participated LIVE, answering between 15-20 questions about Star Wars™ characters, places, weapons, lore, and more. How do you think you would have done?
Trivial Cahoots succeeded because you, the fans, brought your A-game. We couldn’t be happier to have such funny, interesting, geeky friends.
Winners got Sideshow rewards and bragging rights.
