In our last episode (Episode 14-Jedi Luke! Escape From the Ford Taurus!) as part of our homage to all things Kenner Star Wars we watched 15 minutes worth of vintage TV ads for Star Wars toys.  We had so much fun with them that we thought we would share it with you as a special video episode! 

 

Give us an iTunes review, tag us on Twitter or send us an email and we'll feature it on an upcoming episode!

The Sandcrawler - #14 -Jedi Luke! Escape From the Ford Taurus!

ALL VINTAGE SHOW

 

Can you dig it? Step back in time to 1978 and the original Kenner Star Wars action figures!  That’s right, this week’s show is all about the one collectible that started it all for Star Wars fans!  You’re thinking, “every Star Wars podcast talks about Kenner at one point, what makes The Sandcrawler different?”  Well, fair listener, Mike stopped playing with toys in about 1979 and Dan, well Dan wasn’t even alive back then so you have two people from different eras of collecting that rediscovered these historical bits of plastic as adult Star Wars collectors.

 

We discuss co-workers and Rogue One, read listener feedback about their favourite Kenner Action Figures and on I Wanted Everything (Retro Intro) we reveal an unlikely source for 2014 Black Series figures.

 

So put on your bell bottoms, cue “Dreamweaver” on your stereo and go back in time with The Sandcrawler!

The Sandcrawler Episode 13-A New Year & Goodbye To A Princess

After what seems like a WAY too long Christmas break, Dan and Mike are back and still geeking out over Rogue One.  We ring in the New Year with the biggest "I Wanted Everything" segment yet as Santa was very good to the guys this year!  

Big thanks to those of you who responded to Dan's call on Twitter for your favourite Power of the Force action figure from the 1990's, there were a ton of great picks and we had a blast talking about them this week.

The Star Wars community mourned the loss of Carrie Fisher and her mother, the legendary Debbie Reynolds and we extend our condolences to their family and friends.  

We also announce that the show will be released bi-weekly now instead of weekly but not to worry, when things in the Star Wars collecting galaxy start to heat up to Mustafar levels we'll be there for you!  Here's to an awesome 2017!
