Tom was once again a guest on the Rebel Force Radio podcast and this time, hosts Jimmy Mac and Jason Swank had a surprise up their sleeves! You can listen to the show at the link and check back often, as RFR posts new podcasts all the time with some of the best names in Star Wars authors, collectors and more! On this show, Tom talked about his panels for Star Wars Celebration, including the now famed Cantina panels he co-hosts with Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo and another about Star Wars prop and costume collecting. He also talked about our new venture, Regal Robot, which is a second company where we’ll be offering official themed Star Wars furniture and home decor. We’ll post more about that very soon!
Jimmy and Jason surprised Tom by hosting an induction ceremony, complete with Stormtroopers and an Ahsoka Tano costumer, where Tom was inducted into the famous 501st Legion charity group as an honorary member in recognition of the work his studio has done, both recreating Star Wars characters for commercials and such, and preserving original props from the Star Wars films for collectors and even the Lucasfilm archives.
“Thanks to the 501st for such a great honor! It’s one I share with all the amazing, talented artists who work with me here at Tom Spina Designs.” – Tom
