Dan and Mike are back with a second look at their Star Wars Celebration Orlando experience and this time we’ve brought along our good friend, Chris Salton of The Collector’s Hutt and Brews and Blasters to help them sort it all out.

This week we try to sort out exactly why the lines at Celebration were seemingly endless.  Chris shares some of his favourite finds in Orlando and he and Dan recollect a chance encounter with Dave Filoni!  You have to hear it to believe it!

Dan makes his pitch to appear in the Han Solo movie (see show title) and Mike’s impromptu Star Wars character impressions spark an idea to get him on Star Wars Rebels.There’s discussion about Hasbro’s recent Vintage Collection announcement, the Rebels Season 4 panel and what Star Wars podcast would be complete without some talk about The Last Jedi trailer?  With a little bit of Disney Parks merchandise and Funko POP thrown in, this is a show you don't want to miss!

The Sandcrawler #23- Middle-Aged Men Hugging

It finally happened!  The long awaited FIRST face-to-face meeting of your hosts! Dan and Mike meet up for Star Wars Celebration Orlando and well, there was hugging. It was magical!

Your hosts hit the ground running in Florida last Wednesday and are here with the first part of their adventures.  There were celebrity meet and greets, ridiculously long lines and oh so many Star Wars toys!  What were some of our favourite finds? We had a blast and can’t wait for you to hear about it!

Did Dan get his Luke Skywalker jacket in time to meet Mark Hamill?    What were the prices like at the vendor booths and how did the Star Wars Celebration community like our Jawa socks?

Mike visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Galactic Nights and also sat in on a panel of X-wing pilots.  What do heroes of the Rebel Alliance think about their action figure selves? Mike asked and has the audio for their answers!

We’re tired! We’re broke! But man are we glad to be part of the Star Wars community!  Thanks to everyone that reached out on social media with their favourite Star Wars Celebration finds, it was fun to share them on this week’s show!  Check our show notes at Retrozap.com for links to everyone's responses from Twitter.

Welcome to a special ROAD TRIP EDITION of The Sandcrawler!  So you’re probably thinking, “geez you guys, you just put out a show on Sunday, what the heck?” Well, we thought we would put together something special for all of you that are on your way to Orlando for Star Wars Celebration.   Over the past number of episodes we’ve had some expert, veteran Star Wars Celebration podcasters on the show to share some of their knowledge with us since we’ve never been to a Celebration. 

We thought that we would gather up all of these segments into one last show before the fun starts at Celebration. If you’re a regular listener then this show can be used as a reminder of what to expect in Orlando this week. 

If you’re new to The Sandcrawler, then hey, welcome! Thanks for joining us!  We hope you like what you hear!

So join Dan and Mike as we pick the brains of Dan Zehr, Chris Salton, Michael Nipp and Jake Stephens and we’ll see you on the show floor!

The Sandcrawler #21 - Jawa Pants

It is Celebration Week! Dan and Mike are finalizing plans for their first face to face meeting down in Orlando for Star Wars Celebration!

Meet the hosts of The Sandcrawler and the team from Retrozap.com on Thursday April 6 at David's Bar and Grill at the Hilton Orlando.  We'll be handing out our special Star Wars Celebration swag at the event and would love to say hi!  Find out who we have decided to have a photo with together.

Here's a hint, he's in Star Wars.  And was trained by Yoda.  Will Dan get a suitable piece of memorabilia in time for Celebration? Will Mike figure out what Rebel pilots he wants to meet?  You'll find out all the answers on our last show before Star Wars Celebration!

That's all for now, we gotta catch a transport to Orlando!

It's a jammed packed mega-show this week as Dan and Mike reveal their Star Wars Celebration Panel choices and discuss the end of Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels.

A chance Twitter conversation with a Rogue One X-Wing pilot, and our thoughts on the ending of Season 3 Star Wars Rebels are just part of this colossal episode. We discuss what collecting panels we hope to see at Star Wars Celebration Orlando and hint at some cool swag we'll be handing out.

Jake Stevens from Toy Run and From4LomToZuckuss.com returns to offer his expert advice on navigating the dealer floor . We also put out the call that the best way to enjoy being a Star Wars collector is to reach out on social media like we have!

In I Wanted Everything Mike gets an awesome gift from a friend and the Jedha Revolt 4-Pack from his wife.  Dan finds a sweet deal on a Kenner mail-in Emperor Palpatine figure and picks up a couple posters to bring to Celebration.

We review the season ending episodes of Star Wars Rebels and....is that Haunted Mansion music in our...ahem, recreation of a Palpatine/Thrawn conversation?  You'll just have to listen and find out!

Your home for Action Figure Therapy returns for nearly two hours of Star Wars fun!

Help us out by leaving your 4-star review so more people can discover the wonderment that is The Sandcrawler!  Give us an iTunes review, tag us on Twitter or send us an email and we'll feature it on an upcoming episode!
