The Sandcrawler #60 - It’s Been A Hot Second

The Sandcrawler #60 - It’s Been A Hot Second

We catch up after not recording for a month and start with a birthday congratulations for Dan and then we share our thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story as it’s released digitally.  We both agree the movie is fantastic but it’s going to take multiple viewings to pay attention to what’s going on instead of looking around for Easter eggs. 

It’s September and normally that would mean Force Friday at various Star Wars action figure outlets but with no film coming out this Christmas  we ore Force Friday-less.  So we reflect a bit on past days and Dan’s fun times with Stephen Stanton.  Head over to Stephen’s website and get an autographed photo of one of the many Star Wars characters he’s voiced over the years. Proceeds from your purchase go to charity too, so it’s a great cause!

We catch up on some email, iTunes reviews (THANKYOU!) and give a shoutout to a couple of new listeners who are binge-listening to The Sandcrawler! Guys, thank you and….we’re sorry.

After our last episode where we covered waves 4 and 5 of Power of the Force, we received a ton of feedback on Twitter and it needs to be said: The Sandcrawler mission to bring respect to the Power of the Force line is becoming a huge success! (Pause as we pat ourselves on the back).

We catch up on some new release news including news from Fan Expo Toronto and some awesome Star Wars POPs coming for Christmas.

In “I Wanted Everything” we reveal a whole pile of Star Wars goodness and….some non-Star Wars goodness and the collecting lines are blurred when Mac talks about what he got.

On our next show we’ll be celebrating our 2nd anniversary so we want to ask YOU a question we’ve asked on our 1st anniversary: Have your collecting habits changed in the past year?  Has the way you acquire Star Wars collectibles changed in the past year? Do you display them differently? Tell us in an email, include a before and after photo if you can or record a voice mail attached to an email and we’ll discuss it on our Anniversary Special.

Oh, and Happy Batman Day.
