While Mac heads to Walt Disney World for one last romp before Galaxy’s Edge makes that resort the most crowded place in the galaxy, the show is going to be on a bit of a hiatus for a couple more weeks. Never fear though, we still have a ton of ACTION FIGURE THERAPY for you to discover here on our site!
First up, we released two new videos on our YouTube channel. The first is our review of the Kessel Mines Playset from Solo: A Star Wars Story. The second video is a look back at Walt Disney World merchandise from The Force Awakens released back at the beginning of 2016 (hard to believe we’re in Year Four of the Disney-Star Wars era!).
Head over to our Collector’s Spotlight page for a Power of the Force collection with some killer lighting.
While we’re talking about Power of the Force, our last episode was all about the vehicles from that awesome line of Star Wars toys from the 90’s. Give it a listen and let us know what you think about these first updates to the vehicles we first saw back in the old Kenner days. And be sure to check out our Link: Our Power of the Force Appreciation Page too!
Based on the weather in our New England and Ontario bureaus, winter is here! What better time to grab your AT-AT, Tauntauns and Snowspeeders and PLAY OUTSIDE! Take some photos of your toys in the snow and send them to us (see above this article for our email link).
For our long-time listeners this will be old news but it’s been one year since we attended the Hollywood premiere of Making Fun: The Story of Funko!. If you are a newer listener we thought you might like to see and hear our experience out in LA-LA-Land.
Thanks, and as a certain mouse would say, “See ya real soon!”

The Sandcrawler #67 - Power of the Force 2: The (Awesome) Vehicles
Happy 2019! It’s our first show of the new year and we start off with a BIG announcement! We are pleased to announce that we are now a part of the Star Wars Commonwealth Podcast Network!
We catch up on some quick news and discuss our busy (at least Star Wars type of busy) Christmas breaks as Dan begins to process all of the Power of the Force figures and vehicles that he’s been picking up and Mac takes another step forward with his Star Wars room and especially his Rebel base diorama.
We get back into our ongoing retrospective of the Power of the Force line from the 1990’s and talk about all of the vehicles that were released for the line. Have a memory or story of any of these vehicles? Drop us an email or DM us on Twitter and we’ll read them on the next show. As always we’ve included a mix of 90’s era music in this episode and you can see the entire playlist on our Facebook page. Thanks to Rebelscum.com for their always thorough archives and information.
