Sandcrawler co-hosts, Mike and Dan wait in line to meet Mark Hamill at Celebration Orlando 2017

Welcome to The Sandcrawler! We are happy that you have found your way to this site! We would like to share a little bit about the two creators of this mystical and magical place. Clearly it is easy to see that we both love Star Wars and Star Wars action figures and collectibles. It is an obsession and some might say disease.

Moment of truth! Mike and Dan meet Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017.  He is clearly impressed with our show t-shirts.

Mike (Tarkin) MacDonald is an old Canadian who was there for the beginning of Star Wars in all of its glory. With his start in the original Kenner figures to his love for the first Marvel Star Wars comics, Mac has lived through it all (Seriously, how many nicknames can one guy have?).  He rekindled his collecting frenzy in the 90's once he gave up his punk rock ways. Mac is a strict 3.75 inch figure collector. Or at least he tells himself that. When Mac is not changing or adding to his amazing Star Wars room, he is an autoworker, avid camper and Walt Disney World fanatic.  You will find him being the ultimate family man. Mike is the brains, heart, and soul for this site and podcast, without him none of this would be possible. Mac is also a big softy.  He is also a writer for Retrozap.com and Coffee With Kenobi and you can occasionally find his musings at From 4LOM to Zuckuss.com.

 

"Dengar" Dan Lizotte

(Dengar) Dan Lizotte is here for the ride. Born in the mid 80’s he discovered the Wars when he was 4 or 5. Dan is an eclectic collector, who never seems to be able to stick to one focus in collecting. Dan lost his childhood collection and for the last 3 years has been collecting at a ferocious pace, an almost unhealthy pace. A former Marine and current firefighter/paramedic, Dan brings a twisted sense of humour to his Star Wars fandom. No worries, you probably won’t see much of that side of him for legal reasons. While Mac does all the heavy lifting, Dan’s aim is all for the laughs. He very rarely is serious and his wife and son can vouch for that.  Apart from co-hosting The Sandcrawler, Dan is one of the biggest Funko POP Star Wars collectors around and is currently on a mission to review each of these figures for Retrozap.com.
