Welcome back to The Sandcrawler and Happy New Year!
After what seems like a WAY too long Christmas break, Dan and Mike are back and still geeking out over Rogue One. We ring in the new year with the biggest “I Wanted Everything” segment yet as Santa was very good to the guys this year!
The Sandcrawler #13: A New Year & Goodbye To A Princess
Big thanks to those of you who responded to Dan’s call on Twitter for your favorite Power of the Force action figure from the 1990s. There were a ton of great picks and we had a blast talking about them this week.
The Star Wars community and the world in general mourned the loss of Carrie Fisher and her mother, the legendary Debbie Reynolds and we extend our condolences to their family and friends.
We also want to announce that the show will be released bi-weekly now instead of weekly but not to worry, we’ll still be bringing you fun, exciting talk about Star Wars collecting! Here’s to an awesome 2017!
Give us an iTunes review, tag us on Twitter or send us an email and we’ll feature it on an upcoming episode!

About The Sandcrawler
What makes this podcast different than all the rest? We won’t be reading off checklists or talking about where and when to find certain figures or collectibles. There are plenty of other shows that do that well, of course.
At the Sandcrawler, we care about YOU, the collector! If you have a collection of Star Wars figures, cereal boxes, or Pez dispensers, we want to know! Mike is an OT kid from Ontario, Canada and Dan first saw Star Wars in 1991 while growing up in Massachusetts. This and an 18-year difference between the two hosts will often give the listener a unique look at Star Wars collecting.
We want to share why Star Wars collectibles mean so much to us and learn why they mean so much to you. What does collecting mean to you? What things do you collect? How do you display your collection? Is this a family activity? We love activities, we have so much room for activities with bunk beds now!
Each episode you can expect to find out a couple of cool new things that Mike and Dan have picked up.
Additionally, we’ll cover whatever the collecting news and hot topic may be that week. As far as Star Wars news goes? Well, let’s just say the Sandcrawler also has its own take on weekly Star Wars news. Mike and Dan are also not paid endorsers for any product and we do not receive product to review. In turn, that means you will get honest and real comments and feelings towards the current state of collecting. As the show progresses, look for interviews with fellow collectors and hear their amazing stories.
Spend some time with us and let’s have some fun talking Star Wars toys. Who doesn’t want to talk Star Wars toys, right?
