Force Friday Countdown: Kenner STAR WARS Dagobah Action Playset - 36 Days to Go!
The STAR WARS Dagobah Action Playset from Kenner's THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK collection was hands-down one of my favorite playsets of all-time. Any kid that had this upon release in 1981 can tell you just how many adventures were had putting figures into foam "quicksand" that was supposed to emulate the swamp into which Luke Skywalker crash-landed his X-Wing Fighter - or "levitating" plastic boxes for that true "Force" effect. While my playset is long-gone, I do have a Mint-on-Card (MOC) Yoda that my wife bought me as a gift a long time ago... and a loose Obi-Wan Kenobi that I can look upon with fond memories. The Kenner STAR WARS Dagobah Action Playset is featured as today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward the September 4th release of toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.KennerAction FiguresHasbroLucasfilmDisneySTAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENSStar WarsThe Empire Strikes Back
A Visit to Camp Kikiwaka: On the Set of Disney Channel's BUNK'D
Having attended "camp" several times as a kid (for Boy Scouts & church), there was a strange familiarity stepping onto the set of BUNK'D at Hollywood Center Studios last month. Along with 24 other familiar writers from the pop culture parenting space, I entered Camp Kikiwaka and took a seat inside a mess hall/lodge to meet the kids from the principal cast. A spin-off of the ever-popular JESSIE (which has come to a close after four seasons), there's some familiar faces in Peyton List (Emma Ross), Karan Brar (Ravi Ross) and Skai Jackson (Zuri Ross) as siblings sent from New York City to Maine (Cameron Boyce is now over on GAMER'S GUIDE TO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING) - an adventure that finds them as Counselors-in-Training at the very camp where their parents first met. Rounding out the cast are Miranda May (Lou), Kevin Quinn (Xander), Nina Lu (Tiffany) and Nathan Arenas (Jorge).BUNK'DDisney ChannelJessieDisneySet Visit
