Mark Hamill to Host a New Pop Culture and Memorabilia Show on Comic-Con HQ this Fall

Mark-HamillMark Hamill wants you to share your stories and show your fantastic Toy/Pop Culture collectibles with the world. Read on for more.


Wondering what Mark Hamill will be up to when he is finished filming Episode VIII? Wonder no more, because Hamill will be hosting a new reality TV series called Pop Culture Quest, which will debut on Comic Con HQ this fall.


The series will feature a documentary type atmosphere that will involve real life stories about fans and their amazing collections. Hamill will be producing the series with help from Howard Kazanjian, (executive producer Star Wars: Return of the Jedi), Darren Moorman (Same Kind of Different as Me) and longtime collector Scott Kinney.


Since the 1970’s, the actor has been collecting cool stuff that includes memorabilia, comic books, toys, lunch boxes, records, puppets and original artwork. He can’t wait to find and share other peoples fantastic collections with you on the show.

“I’ve been a collector all my life. This show is a natural outgrowth of that passion. Now I have an opportunity to collect other people’s collections! I can’t wait to see what’s out there and share it with the world. Collectibles are a living history of who and what we are, so we just might learn something…but there’s no doubt we’re going to have fun!”


Seth Laderman, EVP and General Manager, Comic-Con HQ, said that he couldn’t be more thrilled to have Mark involved in the show.

“From the moment I started talking with Mark about this idea over three years ago, his enthusiasm was infectious. It had such an impact on me that after I came to Comic-Con HQ, my first call was to him and his team about how to bring this show to our community. Passion is at the heart of all of our original series, with a goal to allow innovators like Mark the opportunity to create and bring their ideas to life. We couldn’t be happier to help Mark’s show find a home.”


Earlier today Mark alerted us to the show courtesy of Mark’s very own @HamillHimself Facebook page with a 20 second preview.




Now, thanks to Comic-Con HQ YouTube Channel, you can view the entire teaser trailer here.

It will officially launch this summer on Roku, AppleTV and Amazon’s Streaming Partners Program.The ad-free service will include original scripted and unscripted series, recurring daily and weekly entertainment commentary, live and archival programming, film and TV genre titles, and behind-the-scenes access and bonus features from genre titles.

    Comic-Con HQ just keeps getting better! Looking forward to this!

      As a person whose collection is disbursed (mainly in boxes) in a couple homes – basements & attics, I long for the day when I’ll once again have ‘a space to call my own’ w/ shelving, display cases, etc. ‘Til then, I have to be content having ‘visiting hours’ every now & again w/ stuff like my 24″ Shogun Warriors Great Mazinga & my 19″ Kenner ‘Alien’…looking forward to seeing MH show some cool stuff!

      If this is true then I will happily sign a petition to keep the movie the way it is…I mean why Disney, why?

    • June 3, 2016 at 5:14 pm

      Idk how legit that is..but that is exactly the reason why I didn’t want Disney making Star Wars movies..

        I though the idea of a’Saving Private Ryan’-style combat scene (while likely bodacious in its own way) would not be congruent w/ a SW film – headshots & spewing viscera = Not necessarily something I wanna take the kids to see…

        • June 3, 2016 at 7:41 pm

          I wouldn’t expect them to show graphic images like that..but if they could at least not be afraid to incorporate the same level of violence as say ROTS, it would still get the job done. The talk of eliminating a certain scene that would have an impact as the one mentioned in the post to then just have it be referenced is a little ridiculous..and that horror movie approach for another scene would’ve been AMAZING and well deserved!!

          • June 3, 2016 at 9:38 pm

            Agree 100% On a non-related note, it’s interesting how the implied effect (not clubbing you over the head w/ something) can sometimes yield a stronger end result. Case in point: Compare a classic horror film like John Carpenter’s 1st ‘Halloween’ w/ squirty-blood fiestas like ‘Saw’ or ‘Hostel’; there’s hardly ANY blood in ‘Halloween’ (except in the opening sister-murder bit, then when Jamie Lee gets wounded on her arm by Michael Meyers), and yet ‘Halloween’ is in every way a superior offering; anyway, hoping they get it right in Rogue One (e.g., if our heroes do all basically get snuffed by The Empire after beaming the DS plans to Tantive IV, that they don’t cut to like Ewoks looking up in the sky at a ‘splody ship or something…). On the plus-side, the first trailer was GREAT, so I have a good feeling we’re in for a treat in Rogue 1

            Good point! And yea even with all these rumors and crap going around I’m still excited as hell for this movie!!

      • June 3, 2016 at 7:44 pm

        So you want an uber violent bloody Star Wars film? How am I supposed to take my six year to see that or explain that the new toys on the shelves geared towards children belong to a movie I won’t let them see? Star Wars is a family franchise. If I want to see gore I have plenty of other options.

        • June 3, 2016 at 7:51 pm

          Nope never said that..if you looked at my reply to obijuan you’d see I would personally want something similar to ROTS in terms of the violence. I’m angry about other things about the post I won’t mention because of spoilers.

        • June 3, 2016 at 10:49 pm

          “Heh-heh…another triumph for Alien!” Funny you should mention movie content / merchandising misfires. Exhibit A: The 1979 Kenner ‘Alien’ toy…hilarious stuff. Like somehow shit-tons of kids would be seeing ‘Alien’!

        The post is fake. The guy is an adept liar, but he is a liar. I’ve read all of his comment and im 99% sure. He didnt say anything new, but made up a pretty good synopsis from the trailer and the known rumours. When a user asked him to tell us something yet unkown, he just swindled himself out.

    I Loved Comic Book The Movie, I’m sure this will be a lot of fun too !!
