How was our Force Friday II? How about it felt awfully familiar and not just because of the toys. Also, it was twice as awesome!
Just like Rogue Friday last year, Dan sat outside his local Toys R Us waiting for the midnight start to Force Friday II. The goal this time around was The Last Jedi action figures and just like last year, he and the small group of Star Wars fans were treated to pizza from the voice of Tarkin in Star Wars Rebels and of course, Admiral Raddus from Rogue One: Stephen Stanton! And just like last year, Mike….was at work. The Sandcrawler would like to thank Stephen for his kindness and for being such an awesome Star Wars ambassador!
The Sandcrawler #34: Force Friday II-The Stanton Strikes Back
On Force Friday II morning, Mike hit his local ToysrUs and then crossed the border over to Michigan. It looks like it was hit or miss for alot of people who were out on Force Friday. Mike’s stores were pretty successful. It took a few stops at different stores but the guys were able to find what they were looking for.
If that isn’t enough, The Sandcrawler is celebrating it’s first year anniversary at the end of September!!

–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?
