We celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars this week!  Can you believe Star Wars hit the big four-oh on May 25?  Neither can we but we do our best to digest it and we've brought along the "OT Curmudgeon" himself, Tom Berges from I Grew Up Star Wars to help us out!

Thanks to "Chris Fitzpatrick 87" for your humbling iTunes review of our show. We are so flattered by your kind words!  Thanks also to Bryan Dyck for making us, well, collectibles!  Also check out Bryan's goofy stop motion video that we talked about this week.  Never too old to play with toys!

If you didn't attend Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past April then you are eligible for a great contest over at Rebelscum.com where you have a chance to win a TON of swag, including something from The Sandcrawler!

Vanity Fair chose Star Wars' anniversary to preview their The Last Jedi cover feature.  As always the covers look amazing but even more amazing is the poster that new subscribers can get.  By the way, who the heck is this little guy?

This week in I Wanted Everything Mike picks up a couple more vintage Marvel comics and Dan loves the new Funko POP Luke in landspeeder.  He's also picked up some Topps 40th Anniversary trading cards which are just full of nostalgia and are pretty darn cool too.  The piece de resistance for Dan though is a very special gift from a fellow collector.

Tom Berges, owner of I Grew Up Star Wars.com website and Facebook group talks with us and we catch up on our first meeting at Celebration.  Then Dan, the young punk of the show, poses twenty-one questions to the two old guys, Mike and Tom, and it's a ridiculously fun time.  We're pretty sure no other Star Wars 40th Anniversary podcast includes references to lederhosen.

The Sandcrawler #25-Getting “Igre-ed”

Happy belated May the Fourth!  This week on your home for Action Figure Therapy, Dan and Mike are trying to sort out what comes next in their Star Wars rooms.  After Star Wars Celebration they have come back as slightly different collectors.  What have they learned about collecting and about themselves? You’ll want to listen and find out!

May the Fourth has come and gone but not without a few cool nods from...the Canadian government?

In a meandering editon of I Wanted Everything the hosts share a mix of Celebration buys and more recent ones and Dan has an offer for Mike that he must promise to accept Dan’s terms before the offer can happen. This isn’t going to be a Lando/Vader thing is it?

New projects are afloat for both collectors including a pretty huge one for Dan as he begins his journey to build a full-scale Han in Carbonite prop.  Check out prop building websites, RPF.COM and THE DENTED HELMET.

Thanks so much to Bearhug71 and Tyler Thompson for your glowing iTunes reviews! As always we’re humbled and appreciate it very much!

What’s the deal with 4-LOM’s cloak and what does “Getting Igre-ed” mean?  We explain it all on this week’s Sandcrawler!
