What does the recent announcement from Lucasfilm mean for collectors? Is the latest 3-pack of Star Wars figures worth buying? You have questions. We have answers!
Happy Wookiee Life Day weekend from Dan and Mike! Dan met a childhood hero at Rhode Island Comic Con and maybe, just maybe cracked the case of, “Does Chewbacca eat Porg?” Watch Dan’s conspiracy theory video, disguised as a look at all the Funko POP! porgs and decide for yourself!
The Sandcrawler #39: Ewok Curse Words
Friend of the show, Chris Hamilton sent us a clip from the old Ewoks cartoon that begs the question, “is ‘Dengar’ a curse word?”
Funko recently had a grand opening of their new headquarters and we’re adding it to our bucket list of the ultimate west coast road trip. But hey, we’re a toy collecting show so let’s talk some toys! We still don’t know what to expect from Disney Parks’ plans for a “sandcrawler playset” as announced at Star Wars Celebration Orlando so we talk about a recent rumor that has us excited.
Dan reviews the Amazon exclusive Black Series First Order Stormtrooper With Gear and Mike reviews the Star Wars Universe Three Pack that is exclusive to Target and Canadian Tire. We also talk about the new Disney Store exclusive, Toy Box figures based on the Disney Infinity game figurines. Where do they fit in the grand scheme of Star Wars collecting?

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?
