Last episode we talked about Solo: A Star Wars Story, complete with any and all spoilers.  This week we continue to discuss the film so be warned!! If you haven’t seen Solo: A Star Wars Story yet, don’t listen to this episode until you do!

We discuss some of the controversy surrounding the latest Star Wars movie but stay on the light side and feature comments from some of our listeners.  Thanks to everyone that sent in emails and for the first time on The Sandcrawler, VOICE MAIL!  It was really great to hear what you’ve had to say about Solo, so feel free to send your remarks our way!

We discuss upcoming action figure releases for Solo and what we’re hoping to see down the road. We also briefly talk about our early plans for Star Wars Celebration in Chicago next year.

We are very happy to welcome Star Wars author Adam Bray to our Collector’s Spotlight this week, it’s been a long time since we last featured a collector and we have a pretty great discussion about collecting and we even side tracked into the early days of Star Wars fandom on the internet.   

If you’re new to The Sandcrawler, we’d like to say “WELCOME. THANKS FOR GIVING US A LISTEN!”  If you’d like to know more about the show, head over to TheSandcrawler.net and click on the “about” link.

Check out our latest entry in our Collector's Spotlight, Jamie Guida!

We opened a new page on the site called, Play Outside where we will feature some of our outdoor Star Wars figure photography.  Our hope is to make this as popular a page as our Collector’s Spotlight page so feel free to send along some photos of your toys in the wild.

EPISODE 52-SOLO A Star Wars STORY REACTION SHOW

Dan and Mac both saw Solo: A Star Wars Story on opening night and raced home in under 12 parsecs to record their initial thoughts on the latest entry into Star Wars movies!

Short take? We loved it!  

Join us for a fun discussion as we geek out about that big reveal, Beckett and his crew, and of course the first meeting of the scoundrel and the Wookiee!

Big, big thanks to Kendall Schroeder for his awesome Duran Duran/Rio Durante album mashup! It’s a fun, fun image that even caught the attention of Solo director, Ron Howard!

EPISODE 51-PORG IN A BOTTLE

May the Fourth weekend has wrapped up without any major announcements but we still have a lot of Star Wars collecting to talk about!

Solo: A Star Wars Story pre-sale tickets are up and this just might turn into our favourite Star Wars movie yet. 

We speculate about Star Wars: Resistance and discuss what it could mean for collectors.  We also sort of wrap up our thoughts on Star Wars Rebels, you know, months after it ended.

Mac has slowly begun picking up The Vintage Collection 2 figures and Dan has a new favourite Power of the Force piece.  Oh and some figures he said he wasn’t going to collect.

Speaking of Power of the Force, we move on to Wave 3 and a great memory of Dan’s Yoda figure he had as a kid.

Thanks to Rob Williams and Jamie Guida for the fun emails and big thanks to Justin Morgan for the incredibly generous gifts!
