In episode thirty-four, Bill and Chris recap the Yakface.com Wookiee Weekend checklist of Solo: A Star Wars Story products expected to hit stores soon. Tamashii Nations have announced SH Figuarts Chewbacca and Mimban Stormtrooper from Solo, as well as re-issues of SHF Luke (RotJ) and Han (ANH). Figuarts ANH Vader is set to release April 27 and Maul’s Speeder on April 13. In Marvel news the U.S. release of Ant-Man from Ant-Man and the Wasp will come with a giant ant for him to ride on. Pre-orders are now up for Bandai Hobby’s 1/144 Solo Millennium Falcon. Medicom teased a comic book version of MAFEX Spider-Man and announced a re-issue of the Homecoming version. Hasbro accidentally had a premature solicitation of Black Series Enfys Nest with swoop speederbike, and the Dorkside Toys landing page has since been removed.

The DorkLair is a collecting podcast with emphasis on premium action figures. Host Bill Drewnowski has been collecting and following Star Wars SH Figuarts since 2015 when the line first began. Therefore it is a 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 collecting community who share varying levels of interest in premium and import action figures.
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.
