"King Tom" Chansky drops in as guest motivator to help dissect the novel Phasma by Delilah Dawson. Here's what happens:

  • Smuggler's Bounty boxes arrived. The theme is Jedi. They're dope!
  • King Tom has a giant plush porg, so he doesn't need anything else. Ever.
  • We break down Phasma and how it connects the dots and adds more the canon. It's good stuff.
  • Mad Max was Phasma's neighbor.
  • Fox on the Run by Sweet is a killer song, and the fact that it wasn't in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is crap. We can't think of any other time something has been featured in several movie trailers and not appeared in the actual movie.
  • King Tom sticks around for listener voicemails and emails.
  • Chris Willis reminds us of why we're impossible to love.

The Bad Motivators are joined by the highly talented and hard working Michael Pasquale of 800lb Productions. Here's what happens:

  • Eric got his killer SDCC-exclusive toys from Steele Saunders of Steele Wars. Jealousy all around.
  • JJ Abrams is back, baby. We're all on board. We'll not be signing any petitions.
  • Mike shares his love for R5-D4 and Luke Skywalker. We already knew he was awesome, so we weren't surprised by this.
  • We get an inside look at the creative industry from Mike. It's a scene, man.
  • Luke and Dallas accept their inferiority with minimum fuss.
  • Having a guest for the listener emails and voicemails is great!
  • We rate our regular contributors from best to best per Top Gun Ollie's request. Dallas gives him the afterburner.
  • A Jonathan P. Schwartz lightning round. Play along!
  • Be sure to check out Mike's artwork! (website: 800lbprods.com, Instagram: 800lbproductions, Twitter: @800lbProds)

Colin Trevorrow is out as the director of Episode IX. Since we recorded this episode, it's been announced that JJ Abrams will be taking over. Here's what happens:

  • Hey, there's gonna be a new director for Episode IX!
  • Dallas sent Luke and Eric each a DJ Funko Pop! yet they both still make fun of him.
  • Will The Last Jedi be too much like The Empire Strikes Back? Any concerns?
  • How far out there will the movies ever be?
  • Will Kylo Ren be super evil in TLJ? Oh, and Adam Driver is a great actor.
  • The latest trailer for Star Wars Rebels season 4 looks really good. But those trailers always do. What's gonna happen in this final season? Who is gonna get the axe?
  • Emily Lind asks if people could really handle a movie from the perspective of the Empire or First Order, where they are the protagonists. What do you think?
  • Great listener emails and voicemails!

We talk Inferno Squad and Force Friday II shenanigans. Here's what happens:

  • Toys! Score!
  • Yay porgs! Eric's pal Lucas won a giant porg from Target. Screw that guy.
  • Walmart, what is your problem?
  • The new TLJ Pops! look really cool.
  • The 3.75" figures have come a long way!
  • Inferno Squad made for a neat story. Some like it more than others.
  • We got our very first (official) 1-star review! We knew people were thinking it, but someone finally wrote it down!
  • King Tom sneaks one past the goalie. Come on, Your Highness. Come on.
  • Jonathan P., crafter of amazing emails, leaves a voicemail for the first time. Voice like an angle, that one.
  • We love Richie from Boston. And Dean from Australia. And Turbo from Australia.
  • Don't miss our special guest in episode 30!

Force Friday II is in a few short days. What are we gonna get? What can we afford? Do bills really have to be paid? Here's what happens:

  • What toys are actually being released?
  • Hey stores, quit putting merchandise on the shelves that we can't buy. That's crap.
  • Dallas talks a clerk down on price in a retail store. Like a boss.
  • Thanks to Sphero, we'll all be broke. But happy.
  • Porgs.
  • Porgs. And more porgs.
  • Dallas drops out to take care of business. Naturally he closes the deal. The guy's a salesman!
  • Some great emails and voicemails from our awesome listeners.
  • Richie from Boston explains exactly how an Obi-Wan movie could work out. Exactly.

There might be a Kenobi movie in the works. Maybe? Oh, and Eric read Darth Plagueis. Here's what happens:

  • Matt Frost is the BEST, Jerry. The BEST! You should follow him on Twitter (Phroosh77).
  • Saving money for Force Friday is hard. Being a grownup isn't as great as they said it would be.
  • There may be an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film in the early stages of development. We have opinions.
  • We talk about Darth Plagueis. Audio book versus actual reading. Semi-intelligent story analysis. Bad guys are cool. Or are they? (They are.)
  • A flash-round email from Jonathan P. Great stuff!
  • We have the best listeners, that is for sure.

Entertainment Weekly's The Last Jedi issue came out, and Anthony Breznican crushed it. Here's what happens:

  • Cool collecting talk. We're sorta holding out for Force Friday. But clearance stuff is really giving us some great scores!
  • Emily Lind rules.
  • The Brez gave us some great information about The Last Jedi in these articles. We break it all down!
  • We *love* porgs.
  • Darth Vader #4 is KILLER. Check that comic series out!
  • Eric says he finally read Darth Plagueis. Dallas and Luke are stunned.
  • Listener emails and voicemails. Some GREAT questions in this round!

  • Eric's getting a haul of stuff.
  • Dallas has a business that you're not gonna believe.
  • Luke revisits the tank top fiasco.
  • A cavalcade of 80s cartoon reminiscing that will bring tears to your eyes. There's singing, people. Singing!

Remember when Anakin totally flipped his lid and ruined everything? Crazy times. In this episode, we get a fresh perspective on Revenge of the Sith. Here's what happens:

  • Luke unboxes one of the most elusive and rare characters in our fandom live on the show, much to the surprise of Dallas and Eric.
  • Eric's kid had a birthday. Naturally, Eric tried to steal all of his son's toys.
  • We talk about Revenge of the Sith and why we feel it's the best of the prequel trilogy. So good.
  • Dallas unleashes a thought-provoking theory about the Force and the state of the Jedi in the timeline of the end of the prequel trilogy.
  • We talk about Snoke. Things are said that we can't unhear. Ever.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, international edition!

San Diego Comic-Con was this past weekend. There was no Star Wars panel, but some really cool toys and books were announced. Here's what happens:

  • Our buddy, author Dean Mayes, wrote really cool blog post on his website, deanfromaustralia.com. Go check it (and ALL of Dean's writing) out!
  • Luke and Dallas scored a really cool Toys "R" Us 6" Black Series exclusive, Clone Commander Gree. He's awesome.
  • Eric went to see Galactic Empire play. Great show. If you have a chance to see the band, go.
  • Some great impressions by Blake courtesy of the Steele Wars Podcast.
  • A great rundown of the figures announced at SDCC. Goodbye, money.
  • There are some really sweet books coming down the line. Be on the lookout! Check out starwars.com for a comprehensive list.
  • Issue #3 of the Darth Vader (2017) comic series. So good.
  • Someone has the P-O-R-G blues. Sing it, Josh!
  • Listener voicemails and emails. A lesson in paleontology.

The D23 Expo was last weekend, and some cool stuff dropped! Here's what happens:

  • We each scored some pretty sweet stuff this week. Everything's going on clearance to make room for the new stuff. Take advantage!
  • "Star Wars Land" has a name! Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open at some point in 2019. I wonder if I could try to give a response like that to my boss when he wants to know when I'm gonna have something done at work.
  • A 1/2" scale model of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge? WHAT IS THIS, A GALAXY'S EDGE FOR ANTS?!? I guess you can go there after you leave the Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good.
  • The behind-the-scenes reel for The Last Jedi is great. Really, really great. The visuals. The action. The dialogue. The creatures!
  • Did we mention the creatures?!? THE CREATURES! Porg, porg, porg.
  • Some great listener voicemails and emails. We have the best listeners.

It's the 20th episode of The Bad Motivators! We've had such a good time making the show, and we're beyond stoked to hit this small milestone. Also, we had such a great time revisiting The Phantom Menace a couple of weeks ago! This week, we get a fresh perspective on Attack of the Clones. Here's what happens:

  • The Motivators are very thankful for all of our listeners. You guys are the best!
  • Target wants the Rogue One figures gone. Get 'em while they're cheap!
  • Luke and Dallas discuss Funko Pops! and subscription services.
  • Eric finally saw a movie that everyone else in the world saw a long time ago.
  • We receive a message from a friend mid-show that turns out to be a special treat for us!
  • We talk about the good, the bad and the rest of Attack of the Clones. It turns out that it's a fun movie to watch.
  • A voicemail from a first-time contributor that asks some questions that are on everyone's minds. It's music to our ears.
  • WE HAVE MERCH! You can get t-shirts and the like at https://t.co/ozsvg2LKpO. Ace job by Luke getting that set up at TeePublic.
  • Don't miss the outro song on this one. Galactic Empire rules.

The new Darth Vader series from Marvel Comics is pretty dope. Here's what happens:

  • A little more news on the Han Solo standalone director change. It's a scene, man.
  • The first two issues of the new Darth Vader comic series are out. HUGE SPOILERS. It's actually really cool.
  • What's the deal with Kyber crystals?
  • Did Kylo Ren construct his lightsaber from scratch himself? Or was it partially complete already?
  • What is the movie release plan going to be when the next Indy movie comes out?
  • Some first-time contributors in the listener voicemail and email segment! It's always great to hear from our listeners!

The prequels are good movies, seriously. This week, we get a fresh perspective on The Phantom Menace. Here's what happens:

  • Sensationalism sells news. Unfortunately, it typically bypasses basic human decency and empathy in the process. Carrie Fisher rules.
  • Dallas and Luke both scored a sweet Lando 6" Black Series! Luke also go the Inquisitor Pop! Eric bought an older Hasbro interactive R2-D2 via Craigslist. It didn't work. Enter the Force. Happy ending.
  • The Phantom Menace has a lot going for it. Awesome Jedi? Check. Badass villain? Check, check. Brilliant soundtrack? IT IS... AWESOME.. (you know you sang that just now).
  • Top Gun Bob Ross? Happy little Force trees? Wait, what now?
  • Josh Nelson, we love you.
  • Richie from Boston blows our minds. Seriously. Kaboom.
  • Chris Willis can make any day a great day. ERIC, I SAID HE CAN MAKE ANY DAY A GREAT DAY!
  • King Tom lets off a little royal steam.
  • Some first-time contributors and long time friends of the show via email and voicemail! Sweet!

Well, E3 2017 was this past weekend, and that Battlefront 2 trailer sure looks neato! What does the story arcs in the game add to the overall story of Star Wars? Here's what happens:

  • There is some really interesting imagery in the Battlefront 2 trailer, specifically stuff that comes from Aftermath: Empire's End. Luke takes us in deep. You know what I mean.
  • Eric thought the title Inferno Squad was a terrible joke when he first heard it.
  • Dallas hasn't read Dark Disciple yet. At least Eric is finally reading Darth Plagueis, for crying out loud.
  • Eric's kids made a really cute video thanking Stephen Stanton for some cool autographed pictures he sent to them. Check it out here!
  • Some people don't understand why we think The Force Awakens is so, so, so good. King Tom swoops in and explains it much better than we did.
  • An international collection of listener voicemails and emails!

Jun 7, 2017

The Funko SDCC-exclusive Pop!s were announced. One of them is cool. None of us can go to SDCC. Here's what happens:

  • Luke loves Funko Pops! His mom wants to know why he has so many. Luke wants to know why Funko can't throw us a bone and make the Snoke Pop! available to everyone.
  • When it comes to old SNL skits, Eric can't tell Boston and Brooklyn apart.
  • Dallas watched Spaceballs with his kids. Those poor kids.
  • NLA (National Lightsaber Association) talk. Seriously.
  • Eric got a call from Stephen Stanton as part of a prize for retweeting to raise awareness for Starlight Children's Foundation. Mr. Stanton has an amazing resume. Check him out on IMDB!
  • Top Gun Ollie gives us a glimpse into Top Gun 2. Apparently it sounds just like the original Top Gun.
  • An amazing batch of listener emails and voicemails.

Star Wars turned 40 on May 25th. They grow up so fast! It seems like only yesterday that it was a baby. But, anyway. Here's what happens:

  • Luke tells us that the new Smuggler's Bounty box is awesome. The Luke with land speeder is especially neato.
  • We talk about what the original Star Wars movie means to us and what keeps us coming back to it again and again.
  • There are some weird things in each of the films of the original trilogy that maybe not everyone has noticed. Surprisingly, Dallas takes us to school on this one.
  • Eric reminisces about his kids introducing him to disco when it first came out.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, featuring King Tom, Richie from Boston, Aaron from OKC and more!

Have you read Thrawn by Timothy Zahn? We did! Well, Eric did. Dallas and Luke "read" the audiobook. Look up the verb form of the word "read" in the dictionary and tell us what you think. But anyway. Here's what happens:

  • Dallas made a KILLER score on some 40th anniversary 6" black series figures at an incredible price. He mentions that there were doubles of some of them. Luke points out that neither he nor Eric would have turned those down. Just sayin'.
  • We rate Thrawn on a scale of 1-10. Or at least some of us do.
  • How about a rundown of the novel and an analysis of it? Check and check.
  • Han Solo movie speculation.
  • We lost Olliewood. Dammit, Maverick.
  • The merits (or lack thereof) of the Yub Nub song.
  • Listener emails and voicemails!

  • Luke got Eric a Mother's Day gift.
  • Dallas was at an adult party jumping on tramps. Oh yeah.
  • Will the next Star Wars animated series look like South Park?
  • Why was the dude from the Doors a Navy fighter pilot?
  • Toys: open them or no?
  • We catch up on listener emails and voicemails, including an email from noted author Emily "Lindo" Lind!!

Luke has a great idea. Three different standalone movie ideas, one from each Motivator. Realistic ideas! We're gonna be rich! Here's what happens:

  • Walgreens is a goldmine for the elusive figures in some areas.
  • The Mandalorian-Jedi war.
  • The origins of the Force and the Jedi Order.
  • Vader's torment in the aftermath of the events of Revenge of the Sith.
  • Those embarrassing spontaneous lightsaber ignitions in Jedi class right before you get called on to come to the front of the class.
  • A couple of listener emails!

What does the balance of the Force really mean at this point in the current canon? Dallas poses this question and shares his thoughts on it. Here's what happens:

  • Where are the damn 40th anniversary Han Solo and R2-D2 figures?
  • Is the Bendu the future of the Force?
  • Does Luke really think the Jedi should cease to exist?
  • People, they're buttholes sometimes.
  • Apparently there's a book called Darth Plagueis that's really good. It's the first Eric's heard of it.
  • Some pretty choice listener voicemails and emails. SPOILER WARNING: There is cursing.

Apr 26, 2017

Some surprising news in the world of Star Wars, and some surprising absences of news. Here's what happens:

  • Cool Celebration exclusive collectables?
  • Hey, how about the buttholes who are buying all the toys off the shelves and selling them for a huge profit online just knock it off?
  • What's really going on in Star Wars right now?
  • Season 4 will be the final season for Star Wars Rebels.
  • 40 Years of Star Wars panel. It can be found here.
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel. It can be found here.
  • Mark Hamill's Tribute to Carrie Fisher panel. It can be found here.
  • Yeah, yeah. Read Plagueis. Got it. Maybe Dallas can have his son loan Eric his book report on it.
  • Listener emails!
