Three and a half hours of the best Star Wars conversation I've heard since ... well, the last episode!

I was so honored when the gang thanked me on this show. To be a part of this community and to contribute so meaningfully to the show are two of the things that have enriched my life over the past three years.

This episode must have been popular with the iTunes crowd. The ForceCast is at #10 on iTunes's Top Audio Podcasts in TV/Film.

@Eric's
Those LOST podcast will only be around for so long, then the pornn one will probably become number one and we might have a shot at the top five!

@Jay
It might take me only 2 evenings to get through it. I put a sleeptimer on my mp3 player to shut off after an hour, so I can get some quantity sleep. Last night I goofed it and listened to 2 hours waiting for the thing to shut off. Oops.

Great show either way. I'm happy new listeners finally got to hear this Pete guy we're always talking about and got to see why we miss him so much

Oh man, Oh man was this a perfect show! I haven't really been able to listen to the show live in such a long time that I forgot how much I enjoy the lead up to the show and the exact moment when the show starts up.

You guys have done such a great job creating something Star Wars fans can rally around, thanks for everything y'all do. Here's to another three years of the greatest podcast in the galaxy! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Listened to the whole thing today while I was wondering around town taking care of some errands. So much good stuff in there. Other people on the street were giving me funny looks (which to be fair, they probably do anyway) I was laughing so hard.

Also made me realize how long I've been listening to the show... I think I got all of the in jokes...

WOW! what a show guys! Took away the taste of resent EU shows, and brought back so many amazing memories from when I first started listening nearly 3 years ago. Great to hear Pete again, you are all truly talented, funny, and giving of your time. AWESOME SHOW!

Fantastic show guys! Having only discovered this gem one year ago it was really nice to get the back-story on some of the things that you guys reference regularly on the show. Thanks for helping to bring me up to speed.

I have to say that I completely agree with those that commented through their voicemails and e-mails in the show that this has become the highlight of my week. I didn't have any close friends who are nearly as passionate about Star Wars as I am before I found this show (and these awesome forums!), but now I feel like I truly do. I love the Star Wars fan community just as much as I do the source material and the ForceCast represents all that is wonderful about it.

Thanks again for all your hard work and here's to many more years!

Holey Moley!!!!

Just finished listening to the 3-year anniversary Force-Cast like 2 minutes ago and had a heart attack.

I was chosen to win the Premium Format Exclusive Slave Leia from Sideshow Collectibles!!!!!!

Now I come here and see the linked list, to make sure I was actually called and not just hearing things, and sure enough that's my name on the list!!!!!!!!

Unless there's another Alonso De Vega in Wichita, KS. If so, he'd better live on the East side of the city, if not, I may be tempted to raid his mail box. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

All I can say is a very big "THANKS!" to everybody who helps produce the Force-Cast and to all those who contributed prizes for making this episodes, and all episodes before it, great.

I've really enjoyed the show these past 3 years and hope to enjoy it for a long time to come.

Thanks again to the Force-Cast and Rebelscum for giving me a place to go for my Star Wars fix.

Three years guys, wow! I don't know where you find the time.

I barely find the time with a young family to keep up with all the Star Wars news, listen to the casts, posting on the forums and now reading the blogs and I don't have to create any of the content.

I don't think Star Wars would be the same without you. I think we need to start a pertition for an official Star Wars cast. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Awesome show guys!
I wish I had know sooner, but I didn't know until after the fact!

My favorite FC moment for me, was being a roundtable guest for the CWRT. But more fun than being on the show was being able to see Jason living one of his childhood dreams! When he was a kid - I mean a child - he would set-up a mock radio station in his bedroom and record his own talk show! He had gear back then too! So it is awesome to see him grow up and doing something he loves with the FC!

May the Force be with you!

Finally finished! That only took a week! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Not complaining though, it was really well done, per usual. I wish I had been around all three years, or even two years, but I liked the flashbacks, nonetheless. Makes me want to tackle that archive thread. Hmmm...Will Star Wars talk be just as interesting when the subjects are completely outdated? Probably! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Jay, yes he did. Jason's fantasy radio station was a Rush Limbaugh modeled talk show. I'm sure recordings exist. Jason is neat as a pin, but he NEVER throws anything away...

Just got the Sideshow Slave Leia, HOLY COW!

I actually had to have the delivery address changed to my work address because the package had to be signed for from UPS, so some guys at work got to see the picture on the box.

First I have to say "Thank you Force-Cast!"

Second, I can't believe how big it is. I haven't opened the box, so not sure how much packaging is inside and how tall the actual statue is, but the box is almost 2 feet tall.

I wasn't expecting that.

I'll have to sneak it into the house tonight so the wife doesn't see it, especially since it's her birthday and I'm walking in with a gift for me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Again, thanks to the Force-Cast and Sideshow.

Having finally finished the Megacast, I thought I'd post something I sent Pete when he left. I loved the Star Wars artist sketch cards, especially the fun ones. So I made some of my own with a few of the FC's memorable moments. I'd love to see some more of these from some FC listeners. Maybe we can pass them out at Fan Days. If anyone's interested, I can post the template for the blank cards.

Thanks again for the first 3 years of memorable Force Casts. I can't wait for more!
