This week we hit a milestone, talk about the feast or famine that was Solo Weekend and review Wave 2 of the Power of the Force!
Welcome to our 50th episode of Star Wars action figure therapy! Thank you to all our listeners that have hopped on board the Sandcrawler Express since the Fall of 2016!
The Sandcrawler #50: Tarkin’s Knee Holes
Last weekend saw the release of Solo:A Star Wars Story merchandise and the guys have different stories about how it went down. Did you get a lot of Solo merch? Tag us on Twitter and let us know! Head to our website for a look at what we saw when we hit our local stores.
We finally get back to doing a segment of I Wanted Everyhing where we talk about new finds including some surprising ones from Mac and Dan’s 10 inch Funko POP Porg! Oh and by the way, what’s the deal with Tarkin’s knee holes?
In our second look at the Power of the Force action figure line we discuss Wave 2, a small wave with some big characters: Boba Fett, Lando Calrissian and Luke Skywalker in X-wing pilot gear. Here’s the panel from the vintage Marvel comic that we mentioned:

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?
