As Star Wars toy collectors know, right now at Target are two new items that are sure to take Gen X-ers back to their childhood--an Empire Strikes Back Tauntaun in vintage packaging, and Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder in vintage packaging recalling the packaging from the 1978 original. On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast, Jerry takes the landspeeder up to 88 miles per hour and travels back in time to look at the actual vintage Kenner Landspeeder, and compare it with Target's current exclusive release and all the Landspeeder releases in between!
Also at Target, in the trading card aisle, a new Star Wars item has slowly been pulling in Star Wars collectors, and metal shavings--Star Wars Power Plates, tin magnets shaped like license plates from the Star Wars universe. On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast, Marjorie and Arnie review a few of these blind-packaged plates.
Also on this week's podcast, Marjorie and Arnie discuss new exclusives and Revenge of the Jedi figures hitting stores, and play your voicemails to share what you're finding. Steve, the Gingerprince, reports in from the Entertainment Media Show in the UK, and Nathan continues his look back at Hasbro's beloved Comic 2-Packs.
With information on how to win a set of Star Wars soaps, information on the Star Wars Action News listener gift exchange, and more, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast!
