We’ve gotten some announcements on new Star Wars figures hitting throughout the rest of the year but we’re going to wait until after San Diego Comic Con to see what else might be coming. In the meantime we discuss the announcement of The Vintage Collection TIE Fighter - link courtesy of Yakface.com. Steve Evans of Hasbro answers collector’s questions and we give that a listen. You can see the video here.
Dan has lived up to his promise to relive his childhood by purchasing nearly anything with a Power of the Force logo and we cover that and some of Mac’s recent finds in I Wanted Everything.
Our PLAY OUTSIDE feature on our website has been super popular! Thanks to everyone that has sent us photos and if you would like to send us photos of your action figures in the outdoors you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org

Dash Rendar fans rejoice! Dan’s nemesis, Jake Stevens (Toy Run, Galaxy of Toys,From 4LOM to Zuckuss)joins us to talk about Star Wars in the mid-90’s, namely, Shadows of the Empire!! We take a look at the unique toys that were a part of the biggest movie campaign to not have a movie. Shadows seems to get forgotten in the new era of Star Wars and that’s a shame because it’s a fun story with some fun merch! We also discuss our preliminary plans for Star Wars Celebration Chicago, what it’s like to pare down a giant Star Wars collection and what we plan on doing during the gap between Star Wars movies.
