The Sandcrawler #46: HasLab-We’re Mostly Excited But Confused
Not only did Dan get "caught between the moon and New York City" but we got a ton of cool reveals from many Star Wars merchandise companies and this week we discuss some of our favourites! Head over to our website for photos from the event. We dive into all the Hasbro reveals for Solo: A Star Wars Story and what Star Wars action figure collectors can expect for 2018. Check out Yakface.com’s excellent coverage including press images from Hasbro. The big news from Hasbro was the announcement of HasLab and their crowd funded mega-playset of Jabba’s Sail Barge. Good idea? Bad idea? We aren’t sure, but we have a lot to say about it! Other products revealed at New York Toy Fair 2018: Uncle Milton Star Wars Skeleton Dig courtesy of Needless Essentials Online . Gentle Giant courtesy of Jedi Temple Archives . Toys That Time Forgot-link to Kickstarter . We hoped to get into something we’re calling “Changing How We Collect 2.0” but we’ll save that for our next show. If you want to hear what happened in the 1.0 version, have a listen to Episode 33: Changing How We Collect.

This week’s segment of I Wanted Everything, where we discuss recent buys is a huge one this week as we catch on the past two months of collecting including an amazing gift from listener, “Joel.” Check out Joel’s amazing diorama work!
We take a look at the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer and wonder what it will mean for action figure collectors as Hasbro decides to change how it releases new merchandise.
With news of even more Star Wars movies comingwe discuss how will it be possible to keep up with more and more movie releases and the merchandise that goes along with it. It’s a conversation you don’t want to miss and it’s one that we’ll carry over into our next show. This is a BIG DEAL for collectors.
