Rantcor Pit


A long time ago, in 2012...

Cole ''JediCole'' Houston launched The Rantcor Pit as a solo podcasting effort on The JediCole Universe website. After two monthly episodes the show died on the vine. But like Boba Fett emerging triumphantly from the Sarlaac Pit (yeah, true Star Wars fans know he survived), the official Star Wars show of the JCU returned in 2013!

Joined by co-host Eddie Medina, Cole began a whole new version of The Rantcor Pit that lasts until this very day! For over four years your steeped-in-Star-Wars hosts have entertained and occasionally enlightened with their bi-weekly simple tricks and nonsense. When the show was still in its infancy they were approached by Deep Ellum on Air founder Jedi Jantzen about possibly bringing ''The Pit'' to a live streaming format. The Rantcor Pit Live was the result and over two years later it remains as the ''larger world'' that Cole and Eddie stepped into and have no desire to leave.

With the trademark ''Do You Like 'The Star Wars'?'' ringing out at the beginning of every episode, The Rantcor Pit has developed quite a following with the podcasts and public appearances at conventions and comic/toy/specialty shops. ''Your Favorite Star Wars Guys'' have been a part of Infinicon from the outset and will be emceeing the costume tournament at Infinicon again this year.

Look for Cole and Eddie at most of the Star Wars game shows this year as well as The JediCole Universe Live talk show. And all over the hotel, for that matter.

The Force is strong with the Rantcorps, so join the fun!

THU 8:00p.m.: Don't Lose Your Geek Card - Star Wars Edition (45 mins.)

Room: GAME SHOWS: MAYFAIR [Lobby Level] Rated: Teen


Produced By: JediCole Universe / Half Ass Productions; Rantcor Pit

Speaking: Leah; Jeff Hendrickson


Your favorite Star Wars guys from The Rantcor Pit and The Rantcor Pit Live bring their simple tricks and nonsense to the game shows track with this edition of Don't Lose Your Geek Card set in that galaxy far, far away. As with the traditional version, contestants receive three Geek Cards each and are confronted with 40 questions over eight categories, all Star Wars themed of course. Contestants who answer a question incorrectly lose a Geek Card and if they lose all three during the game they are out! But there are random Bonus Cards out there to be won with a correct answer to the questions paired with such cards that act as extra Geek Cards. There are also Prize Cards out there that can earn contestants some cool Star Wars swag. If you think the Force is with you then you might wind up as a contestant of this incarnation of the show.

Points are awarded for every correctly answered question as well as for each Geek Card retained and every Bonus Card earned (and retained). Prize Cards do not add to the point total, but at least there is a nice prize involved! Don't like the Star Wars? Check out the other incarnations of Don't Lose Your Geek Card!

Room: BEL-AIR 2/3 [Lobby Level] Rated: Adult


Produced By: JediCole Universe / Half Ass Productions; Rantcor Pit

Speaking: JediCole Houston; Eddie Medina; K-Zach Schrotter


For nearly half a decade Cole Houston and Eddie Medina have collectively been The Rantcor Pit. From their audio podcast to their ever-travelling, Dallas based, live-streaming ''The Rantcor Pit Live'' to last year's The Rantcor Pit Road Show, chances are you've seen and/or heard ''Your Favorite Star Wars Guys''. But (for the most part) you've never seen them quite like this!

Eddie and Cole are ready to let their hair down (and maybe their pants, but hopefully not) with a special live presentation that will play bluer than Aunt Beru's milk! Yes this is the late night, no-holds-barred, F-bomb dropping Star Wars X-travaganza you've been waiting for! ''The Moist Side of the Force'' is about to get moister than a Tattooine vaporator at harvest time and exclusively at ALL-CON!

If you thought there were uncomfortable moments in The Last Jedi, well... let's just say this show will make Rian Johnson blush!

SAT 1:00p.m.: The Rantcor Pit Galactic Games VII (45 mins.)

Room: GAME SHOWS: MAYFAIR [Lobby Level] Rated: Teen


Produced By: JediCole Universe / Half Ass Productions; Rantcor Pit

Speaking: JediCole Houston; Eddie Medina


The premiere game show of ''The Rantcor Pit Live'' is back!

As seen on the live podcast and at Infinicon, ALL-CON, and Famous Monsters Convention, the Galactic Games return to ALL-CON! The whole Rantcorps will be in place to host this dynamic mix of trivia, activities, and other simple tricks and nonsense that pits four contestants against one another in a Geonosian Arena style battle royale! Actually it is more a game show than a battle and no giant monster beasts are involved. None the less, challenges abound that would make a Padawan-seeking-the-rank-of-Jedi balk.

If you are steeped in the Saga, jolly for Jedi, a Rebellion rouser, silly for Sith, or just plain feel like Star Wars is where it's AT-AT, you need to be a part of this game show - in the audience or among the randomly selected contestants!

Contestants will vie for a Hasbro Black Series 6'' scale Rey's Speeder with Rey (Jaccu) action figure valued at $60.00! Prizes will also be awarded to the second and third place contestants.

Contestants: Four
