Superbowl rants! Superhero movies! And of course, Star Wars figure talk with Jake Stevens!
What happens when you decide to record during a week that started with the biggest Super Bowl win in history? You get an episode of The Sandcrawler that is just as epic as the New England Patriots’ historic victory in Super Bowl 51!
The Sandcrawler #16: Jake Stevens, The Kenner Hole & Patriots Rule!
Co-host Dengar Dan is still buzzing from the victory and apart from ALOT of Patriots’s flag waving we manage to squeeze in some Star Wars action figure talk along the way.
This week we begin our Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 Survival Guide where we bring in Michael Nipp of The Deucecast to talk about getting around the Orlando area during the festivities in April. 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.
Jake is a long-time action figure collector and a big part of the Star Wars collecting community and it was a great conversation covering the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, Hasbro distribution and the ongoing debate over super-articulated Star Wars figures. Oh yeah, there’s some super hero movie discussion just for good measure too.
At two and a half hours it’s our biggest show yet and since we release the shows bi-weekly, feel free to take a break and pace yourself! Either way, it’s another fun episode with your home for Action Figure Therapy, The Sandcrawler!

–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.
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?
