THE SANDCRAWLER #63: Halloween With Fading Eyes Desert Dweller
Recorded on a dark and story night in October 2018 we are back with our 3rd annual Halloween Special! If you are new to The Sandcrawler then you may not have heard our past two shows celebrating Star Wars and Halloween. In those episodes we picked some of our favourite “scary” Star Wars figures. Not scary like Darth Vader or General Grevious but scary like “Monkey Face Leia” and “Little Emo Ani.”
This week we talk about our plans for this Halloween and about how we both had a thing for scaring people in our teenage years. We then bring you both of our Scary Star Wars Figures segments from 2016 & 2017. Hey, if they can broadcast It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown for 52 years then we can have an “Archive Release.” Right? Right?
Bring us along to your Halloween party or various trick or treating events over the next week and Happy Halloween from The Large Brown Sandy Box on Wheels!

Dan coined the phrase “Action Figure Therapy” early on in the Sandcrawler’s two-year history and this week it’s about your hosts getting some much need therapy vis a vis Star War action figures! We’ve both had a rough week and sitting down to talk some toys is JUST what we needed, Robot Revolution be damned!
We have some follow up on our last episode abut changing collecting habits and Mac talks about the next step in his Rebel Base display. You can see his progress in his Star Wars room at TheSandcrawler.net We then dive into tons of toy news out of New York Comic Con and Disney Parks.
The Disney Parks Sandcrawler vehicle/playset is now available and Mac tries to say that he isn’t committed to getting it but Dan knows better. Flyguy.net has news about the unique figure stands that will be included in a few upcoming Black Series figures and we talk about why these should just be included with EVERY Star Wars figure! Thanks to JediNews and From4LomtoZuckuss and Flyguy for their always awesome coverage!
If you want stands with your Star Wars figures, let Hasbro know on social media with #Standspleasehasbro !!
Star Wars Resistance has premiered and we’re excited to see a fresh look for Star Wars animation and Jon Favreau’s recent Instagram posts about the upcoming series, The Mandolorian has us excited for the future of Star Wars.
In I Wanted Everything we both picked up the same figure, but from different lines and discuss the Target Exclusive Stormtrooper 6-Pack. Check out our buddy, Chris Salton’s video review! For links and photos for this episode, head to TheSandcrawler.net

Episode 61: Changing How We Collect v2.0
October 6, 2018
On this week’s show we celebrate two years of bringing you Action Figure Therapy! When we started The Sandcrawler we never dreamed just how much of an influence we would have on each other as collectors and this week we talk about how our collecting has changed in the past year. Listen to v1.0 HERE.
We received a ton of feedback from fellow collectors and we read emails, tweets and more. Obviously there are a lot of people that feel the same as we do in this new era of Star Wars: focus, focus, focus!
Check out photos of Mac’s big renovation HERE.
