The Sandcrawler #80 - Everything Is Awesome (D23, Triple Force Friday, Mandalorian)
August 25, 2019
Recorded one day before the Sizzle Real for The Rise of Skywalker dropped on Good Morning America.
Emotions are high this week as we talk about most of the news from D23, figure releases for Triple Force Friday and the apparent replacing of the ForceLink line with the a new 5-inch scale line. Mac shares some new finds in I Wanted Everything and Dan shares an absolute horror story about his Star Wars room.
We read a great iTunes review, an email from Garry from Australia and we follow up on last week’s question “what would you do if your collection disappeared?” See what other listeners said about this question on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
We’re all over the place on this one but trust us, it’s worth it!
We are part of the Star Wars Commonwealth Podcast network starwarscommonwealth.com

We open with an amazing vintage find for Mac that occurred right before we started recording and then catch up on what’s been going on in our Star Wars rooms. We’ve been making moves and adding lighting. Mac installed IKEA lighting in a few places and Dan found a good price on acrylic risers.
Dan has a question for you: What would you do if you suddenly lost your entire collection? Would you rebuild? Change your focus? Something else? Let us know via email or reach out on social media.
We read what could be our favourite iTunes review ever from The Amazing Ratso and we would just like to say, “Hidilly ho, neighbour!” We clear up the mystery of Oak Island with an email from Erin From Work and then move into a live unboxing of a gift for Dan from our buddy Jay Roy.
We also wrap up our retrospective on the initial release of action figures from The Phantom Menace and will be returning to our look at the Power of the Force 2 line very soon!
