Show Notes

Members of the Star Wars collecting community share which item they most desire, and Marjorie and Arnie bring news from New York ComicCon 2014!

The Holy Grail--the one item a collector pines for but has not yet grabbed.  It may be rare, it may be expensive, it may just be elusive, but the hunt continues.  Most collectors have that one item that beguiles them and they would love to own.  On this episode of Star Wars Action News Arnie celebrates capturing one of his Holy Grail collectibles after an eight year hunt!  Then members of the Star Wars Action News community share their holy grails.  Join these collectors as they reveal their hearts' desires.

A common holy grail is an original vintage rocket-firing Boba Fett prototype.  Rare and expensive, this figure was promised on cardbacks but the rocket-firing version never shipped.  On this episode Star Wars artist Christian Slade tells Marjorie and Arnie about how he finally added this wonder to his collection, getting his own holy grail!

And from the old to the new, on this episode also hear coverage of this weekend's New York Comic-Con.  Hasbro had an event with new Black Series, Rebels series, and Mission series figures revealed!  From IG-88 to the Emperor to Han in Carbonite, listen to find out about all the new figures that will be hitting store shelves in the coming months!
