The Sandcrawler #35: One Year of Action Figure Therapy

We are celebrating one year of The Sandcrawler podcast and are doing it with what we do best: Talking about Star Wars action figures and bringing our listeners a big dose of Action Figure Therapy!

Make sure you stay tuned to the end of this week's show to hear the name of the winner of our Target Exclusive Classic Red Stormtrooper Funko POP figure.  Thanks to everyone that submitted photos of their Funko POP collections! We've thrown all names in a hat and have picked the winner (you'll have to listen to find out who)!

We asked our listeners how their collecting habits may have changed in the past year and you responded with some great ideas behind Star Wars collecting.  We talk about where our collecting stories have taken us since we started recording together.  We've influenced each other to be sure!

We have some Force Friday followup (check out for additional photos) Dan's thoughts on attending the first ever HasCON, and Mark Hamill and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ron Howard gets spicy. Have you tried out the Force Link feature on The Last Jedi action figures? It's pretty darn cool if you're like Dan's son!  Check out friend of the show, Chris Salton, who has a great video scrapbook from Hascon!
