Rounding out the Top 10 are a look at last year’s big Star Wars movie, Rogue One, and its connection to a fan favorite character, and a certain Robotech spaceship’s appearance at last winter’s Japan toy show.

David J. Buck joined Nerdvana’s ranks of contributors this year, originally as a our very first official-type intern, and he’ll continue to chime in with his thoughts on retro gaming, cult music, virtual reality and general pop culture shenanigans going forward into 2018, when we’ll have some other projects to share. Some of David’s posts proved to be pretty popular with our audience, and you’ll find them below with other popular content like my coverage of Star Wars Rebels’ third and fourth seasons, some of it live from Star Wars Celebration Orlando back in April.
In other news, Phoenix Comicon made waves with its changes in business model, a cosplay sex survey and rapid response to a narrowly averted disaster that’s still having repercussions on fandom events across the country.
On the lighter side, DuckTales finally returned to our screens (WOO-HOO!) and Nintendo announced the end-of-life for the original Wii system’s Shop Channel and, by extension, the unlimited availability of its rich Virtual Console’s content offerings. Explore all this and more below.
