This week we welcome the guy that brought your hosts together–Retrozap’s Big Kahuna & co-host of Brews & Blasters, Joe Tavano.
Why doesn’t Ketwol have pants?! Joe Tavano, co-host of Brews & Blasters and of course, the Editor In Chief of Retrozap.com recounts for us his collecting history which includes a super weird Darth Vader lamp (similar to the photos below) and what it’s like to keep a collection in his water (heater) closet which is adjacent to his podcasting studio.
The Sandcrawler #18: Taking Pants Off Ketwol
In our Celebration Orlando Survival Guide we discuss what we’re looking for when we hit the show floor and Dan Zehr from Coffee With Kenobi talks about social media in our Celebration Tip of the Week If you have any tips or questions about Star Wars Celebration, reach out to us on Twitter or email us an mp3 and we’ll feature them on an upcoming show.
In I Wanted Everything Dan and Joe have both picked up the Baze and Chirrut 6-inch Black Series figures and Mike talks about a vintage magazine find! Mike talked about a possible connection between Issue 49 of the vintage Marvel Comics series, The Last Jedi and Chirrut Imwe. Read his article here.

–Dan and Mike
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.
