Star Wars Celebrations - never will you find a more passionate group of Star Wars fans in one place! Every single Star Wars Celebration has been a great time for the fans in attendance, with exclusive collectibles, celebrity panels, great events, and so much more friendships are made as are memories! So there can be no bigger Star Wars news this past week than the official announcement of Star Wars Celebration VI, in Orlando, August 23-26, 2012. On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast Marjorie and Arnie celebrate this news and look at what it means for Star Wars fans.
Also this week, Marjorie and Arnie continue packing the Sithsonian and Arnie reflects on what impact the move has had on his rules of collecting.
With a discussion of the Wedge vintage figure, Hallmark SDCC exclusives, and more, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast!
1) I think an issue on everyone's mind lately is figure distribution, especially for the Vintage collection. I have to say as a collector since Hasbro's 3.75" return to Star Wars in '95 I haven't seen such a widespread lack of new figures, and our listeners are reporting this coast to coast so I know it's not an isolated incident. Anything past Wave 2 of Vintage has not met demand, with many people never having seen waves 4, 5, and 6. Can you give us some insight into the cause of these distribution issues, and what is being done to fix them?
2) Is there a reason that you have been using EU names on vintage figure cards? I can see this for figures that were never made in the kenner era, but figures with vintage counterparts should be left as is (example Klaatu became Wooof).
