Star Wars Rebels season four has begun! We break it all down as only the home of action figure therapy can do!
Season four of Star Wars Rebels began this week and we decided to get out another show so we could geek out a little about it. We saw the first episode at Star Wars Celebration back in April but it took the last half of the story to really kick the season into high gear! Forget your fancy themes of the hero’s journey and the Force, we can sum the whole premiere up with one word: JETPACKS!
The Sandcrawler #37: Jetpacks, Baby!
But never fear, as your home for action figure therapy we of course have tons of Star Wars toy talk as we dive into some new buys that Mac swore he wouldn’t get and Dan shares his expert tips on keeping up with all things from Funko POP! The Last Jedi. And keeping with our pre-Halloween theme Dan talks about a recent spooky-themed TV show and some cool figures he picked up. Ok, not Star Wars figures, but still cool. Trust us.
Halloween is just around the corner and like we did last year, we are celebrating by revealing some of the scariest Star Wars figures ever released. Not Rancor scary, but “POTF2 Leia scary.” We’re looking for figures that were released that make you shake your head and say, “Why?” Send us your favorites and we’ll read them on our October 28th show!

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?
