It’s been an…interesting couple of weeks in Star Wars fandom and we are here to provide a refuge, a safe place and some Action Figure Therapy!
Mac recaps his Father’s Day weekend which included some fun gifts from the kids and a backstage tour of Canadian icon Shania Twain’s concert in Detroit. Fellow Star Wars collector and friend of the show, guitar god Cory Churko showed Mac and family what goes on behind a big concert and helped us to prove how much good is still in Star Wars fandom! Cory appeared on Episode 30 of The Sandcrawler to share his love of Star Wars.
San Diego Comic Con exclusives have been revealed and it’s a good bunch of Star Wars collectibles-we take a look. Funko also announced a new line of POP toys based on The Clone Wars and we’re hoping for a Spider Maul in POP form!
Dan picked up a Power of the Force gem and shares a great story from his youth.
We share an email from a new listener who has an amazing collection and talk about another listener’s road trip featuring Funko toys!
