Episode 422: To Buy, Or Not To Buy? That is the Question.
April 14, 2014



Show Notes

Reviews of the second wave of Hasbro's Star Wars Mission Series figures and a discussion of Sideshow's Life Sized Han in Carbonite!

To buy, or not to buy--that is the question.  
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous interest
Or to leave empty a spot in the collection
and risk the price on the secondary market.

Yes, Sideshow Collectibles has put up for pre-order its newest life-sized Star Wars figure -- The Han Solo in Carbonite.  And it has Arnie waxing philosophical about collecting, and how much is too much to spend on one item.  On this episode of the Star Wars Action News podcast he and Marjorie review all the information released about this new high-end item.  Join them for this discussion!

Also on this week's show, Hasbro's new 6-inch Star Wars line has reinvigorated action figure collectors, but with a new scale come old problems--like figure balance.  NECA makes a line of figure stands for 6 to 8-inch figures, but do they work for the Black Series?  Watch to see how this round peg fits in that foot hole!

Also in this episode are reviews of the Hasbro's Mission Series figures Wave 2, including Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, R2-D2, and C-3PO!

With a Savage new Premium Format figure, a report from Wizard World St. Louis, an interview with Star Wars sketch card artist Chris Hamer, and so much more, it's all in this episode of Star Wars Action News!
