We are celebrating one year of The Sandcrawler podcast and are doing it with what we do best: Talking about Star Wars action figures and bringing our listeners a big dose of Action Figure Therapy!

Make sure you stay tuned to the end of this week's show to hear the name of the winner of our Target Exclusive Classic Red Stormtrooper Funko POP figure.  Thanks to everyone that submitted photos of their Funko POP collections! We've thrown all names in a hat and have picked the winner (you'll have to listen to find out who)!

We asked our listeners how their collecting habits may have changed in the past year and you responded with some great ideas behind Star Wars collecting.  We talk about where our collecting stories have taken us since we started recording together.  We've influenced each other to be sure!

We have some Force Friday followup (check out TheSandcrawler.net for additional photos) Dan's thoughts on attending the first ever HasCON, and Mark Hamill and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ron Howard gets spicy. Have you tried out the Force Link feature on The Last Jedi action figures? It's pretty darn cool if you're like Dan's son!  Check out friend of the show, Chris Salton, who has a great video scrapbook from Hascon!

How was our Force Friday II?  How about it felt awfully familiar and not just because of the toys.  Also, it was twice as awesome!

 

Just like Rogue Friday last year, Dan sat outside his local ToysrUs waiting for the midnight start to Force Friday II.  The goal this time around was The Last Jedi action figures and just like last year, he and the small group of Star Wars fans were treated to pizza from the voice of Tarkin in Star Wars Rebels and of course, Admiral Raddus from Rogue One:  Stephen Stanton! And just like last year, Mike....was at work.  The Sandcrawler would like to thank Stephen for his kindness and for being such an awesome Star Wars ambassador!

On Force Friday II morning, Mike hit his local ToysrUs and then crossed the border over to Michigan.  It looks like it was hit or miss for alot of people who were out on Force Friday.  Mike's stores were pretty successful.  It took a few stops at different stores but the guys were able to find what they were looking for.

If that isn't enough, The Sandcrawler is celebrating it's first year anniversary at the end of September!!  We want to hear from our listeners by answering this question:  Has your collecting habits changed since last year? If so, how? If not, why not?   We want to hear from you so send us your thoughts via email, mp3 or private message on Twitter or Facebook. We'll read them on our Anniversary Episode!  And hey, thanks so much for tuning in to our little show, we can't believe how much fun it's been bringing it to you and look forward to doing it for a long, long time!

Our "I Wanted Everything" segment is kind of all over this episode, here's some of the highlights of our recent finds including the awesome Black Series Imperial Stormtrooper helmet.
