Recurrent Events: Arcade1up Pinball, Vinyl Sales Top CDs, Masters of the WWE Universe

Recurrent Events has two segments on this week’s TRN Podcast! Mickey and I will be discussing several stories from this past week in our normal segment and then Recurrent Events takes over! Our main topic will be an extensive month-by-month look at everything retro coming in 2020. We are calling it the Recurrent Events 2020 Preview and it covers movies (including re-releases), TV series, video games, music albums, and collectibles. Be sure to check it out!

The big story this week is the new glorious Star Wars officially licensed Millennium Falcon Hyperspace Jump Experience bounce house that I first saw on Geekologie. It weighs 1,100 pounds and measures 35-feet long, 30 feet wide and 15 feet tall. The Falcon features inflatable slides and playthings inside, a blow-up Chewbacca that greets you at the entrance, and safely accommodates up to 12 bouncers at once. The cost is a whopping $9,495 so your best bet may be renting one from a local business if they have the means to purchase. As Mickey and I discuss during the podcast, this might lead to a spinoff article on what other ships, vehicles, homes, etc. from the past would be make good bounce houses.

Here are the rest of the Recurrent Events headlines for the week of Dec 29 – Jan 4. (Stories marked with *** are discussed on TRN Podcast this week.)






Recurrent Events can be found each week as a segment on The Retro Network Podcast. Please subscribe and give us your feedback which we might feature on a future podcast episode. Also visit the Recurrent Events Archive for headlines from previous weeks!
