Pull out your Ben Cooper Darth Vader mask, turn the light down low and join us as we share our favourite scary Star Wars action figures!

Welcome foolish mortals, to the second annual Sandcrawler Halloween special! It’s one of our favourite holidays and this week’s show is choc full of Star Wars Halloween fun!  We reveal the next winner of the Target Share the Force Red Stormtrooper Funko Pop and then dive right into Halloween hijinks.  Have a vintage or recent photo of yourself in a Star Wars costume?  Did you wear a Ben Cooper Star Wars mask as a kid? Tag us on Twitter (@Sandcrawlercast) with the photo for a chance to win a prize from Dan!

It wouldn’t be Halloween without some treats and we cover that with I Wanted Everything, where we share our most recent finds including Dan’s Funko Pop plans for Rhode Island Comic Con and Mac picks up some loose figures for a future project or two.

Thanks to everyone who reached out with their favourite scary Star Wars figures, we’ve done this for two years now and the list continues to grow! 

Also we’d like to give a huge shoutout and thank you to Funko for giving The Sandcrawler a shout out on their podcast!!

Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels began this week and we decided to get out another show so we could geek out a little about it.  We saw the first episode at Star Wars Celebration back in April but it took the last half of the story to really kick the season into high gear!  Forget your fancy themes of the Hero’s Journey and the Force, we can sum the whole premiere up with one word: JETPACKS!

 

But never fear, as your home for action figure therapy we of course have tons of Star Wars toy talk as we dive into some new buys that Mac swore he wouldn’t get and Dan shares his expert tips on keeping up with all things from Funko POP The Last Jedi.  And keeping with our pre-Halloween theme Dan talks about a recent spooky-themed TV show and some cool figures he picked up.  Ok, not Star Wars figures, but still cool. Trust us.

 

Halloween is just around the corner and like we did last year, we are celebrating by revealing some of the scariest Star Wars figures ever released.  Not Rancor scary, but “POTF2 Leia scary.” We’re looking for figures that were released that make you shake your head and say, “Why…..???” Send us your favorites and we’ll read them on our October 28th show!

Here’s the figures we covered last year. All below information courtesy Jedi Business.com:

New York Comic Con and the trailer for The Last Jedi?  Now THAT’S an awesome week!!

Dan gives his report on New York Comic Con 2017 and all of the awesome Star Wars merchandise that was announced.  He also had a great time hanging out with the fine folks at Funko where he helped them officially unbox his dream come true: The Dengar Funko POP!

We review the trailer for The Last Jedi and like all of you we’re stoked to see what’s in store for the new heroes of Star Wars. And as long as Kylo Ren doesn’t kill his mom, we can’t wait to see it in December!

In I Wanted Everything Mac has a big ol box of figures given to him and a great customer service story involving Disney Parks.

We revealed the winner of our Target “Share The Force” Funko POP exclusive last week but never received word from the winner so we’ve offered it up again.  Listen to see if you’ve won! 

We would like to give a giant, Sandcrawler-sized THANKYOU to our buddy, Chris Hamilton for his awesome anniversary present!
