DorkLair #3: Death Trooper (SH Figuarts Death Trooper)
In episode three of the DorkLair podcast, hosts Bill and Bryan share details about how they chase down their SH Figuarts without going broke. Since Tamashii Nations does not have the license to distribute six inch Star Wars action figures in the United States, U.S. collectors may wonder how to go about obtaining them. There are a number of Japanese retailers who sell these online and ship around the world at reasonable prices. Find out Bill and Bryan’s favorites in this week’s chat. They then move on to the this week’s spotlight figure, SH Figuarts Death Trooper from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Find out their impressions of this figure in the latest episode of the DorkLair!

Connect with the Hosts
The DorkLair is a Star Wars collecting podcast with emphasis on SH Figuarts and other import Star Wars action figures. Host Bill Drewnowski has been collecting and following Star Wars SH Figuarts since 2015 when the line first began. Therefore it is the primary focus of his Star Wars collection. In each episode, Bill features one figure from his hobby room, the DorkLair, for discussion, review, and recommendation. Guests include members of the Star Wars collecting community who share varying levels of interest in SH Figuarts.
Bill and guests sit down each week with figure in hand and the mission to appreciate the simple style and heroic action of the Star Wars SH Figuarts line in its entirety, one figure per episode. The DorkLair takes a look at all the hits and misses in the line, including honest criticism and which figures to skip completely. Meanwhile there is opportunity for comparison between other lines in similar scale including Hasbro’s The Black Series and Medicom’s MAFEX lines.
In addition to the feature figure, Bill and guests cover announcements, pre-orders, exclusives, new releases, collecting tips, and hunting strategies. From casual Black Series collectors looking to learn about imports for the first time, to SH Figuarts completionists seeking in-depth talk about their favorite releases, the DorkLair is a perfect place to enjoy import collecting.
