The Sandcrawler #48: The Greatest Action Figure Line Ever Created———————————————

This week we begin a series that we are simply calling, “The Greatest Action Figure Line Ever Created .”  What is that line? The Power of the Force line that launched in 1995.

The first modern Star Wars action figure line, still a part of Kenner, was the line that turned a nine year old Dan and at the same time, a twenty seven year old Mac into Star Wars collecting fanatics.  It’s time to give it it’s due and over the next several shows we’ll be looking at this line, one wave at a time.

We want to see your favourite Power of the Force figures! Email them to sandcrawler @retrozap.com or tweet at us via @sandcrawlercast.

We also take a look at Haslab’s images of the completed Jabba’s Sail Barge and discuss the exclusive Yak Face figure that is included. 

What does the ToysrUs bankruptcy news mean for collectors and more importantly, future generations? We talk about our memories of what could be the last big toy store. 

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

Episode 47: Changing How We Collect V2.0

This show should be subtitled: “The Waterworld Episode” or maybe “The Best of Bill Gunderson.”   But, it isn’t because this week we are talking about how our collecting habits have changed.  Always in motion is the Star Wars room.

 On Episode 33 we first talked about changing how we collect as Star Wars fans.  With a few more months under our belts, along with The Last Jedi, Solo and some announcements from New York Toy Fair, we are both making some adjustments to how we collect Star Wars.  It’s a conversation we feel many collectors are having right now. 

Funko revealed what could be their final wave of The Last Jedi Funko POPs and Hasbro’s Haslab/Jabba’s Sail Barge project continues to intrigue us. Check out fellow Retrozap podcast, Dorklair for their thoughts.

The Star Wars official site has a great article about Haslab, check it out here.

Collector, Dan Curto had some thoughts on Haslab on  Rebel Force Radio

Want to let Hasbro know what figures and vehicles you’d like to see in the Vintage Collection? Tell them on Instagram!

Thanks to Fantha Tracks.com for mentioning our last episode.  Be sure to check them out!

Mac was a guest on Rebels Reactions discussing the penultimate episodes of Star Wars Rebels.  Listen to it here.
