Show Notes

Brock reviews James Lucino's new novel TARKIN, Jerry looks back at Vintage-era Star Wars books, and Marjorie and Arnie look at figures hitting stores and the sold-out Hot Toys exclusive Shadow Stormtrooper!

It's been a long time since Star Wars action figure collectors could shop exclusively at their local brick-and-mortar stores to get the figures they wanted.  Since the release of Hasbro's The Vintage Collection in 2010 store supplies have been scarce.  Now, however, that seems ready to change!  Across the country collectors are finding new Black Series figures in both 3.75-inch and 6-inch lines, plus new Rebels and Mission Series figures too!  On this episode of Star Wars Action News you can listen to find out which stores to hit to score full waves of new figures.

Also on this week's show, Arnie and Marjorie discuss Hot Toys' first exclusive release in their Star Wars Movie Masterpiece Series--the Shadow Stormtrooper.  A repaint of their basic Stormtrooper figure, this release sold out in just a few hours at Sideshow Collectibles.  What's the fuss all about?  Listen to find out!

With a review of James Lucino's new Star Wars novel Tarkin and Jerry looking back on books of yesteryear, and ThinkGeek plushes too, you'll find all this and more in this Episode of Star Wars Action News!
