Star Wars Action News is back with its first show of 2013. Join hosts Marjorie and Arnie as they discuss the big news revealed by Hasbro last week--the Droid Factory line of figures, slated for early 2013, has been cancelled. Where does this leave action figure collectors, and what will the long-term impact be to the line? Listen to find out their thoughts!
But despite no Droid Factory figures, new Star Wars toys are available online and in stores. In this week's podcast Marjorie and Arnie review the four new mini-rig vehicles released by Hasbro for 2013, the 501st Legion Attack Dropship, the MTT Droid Fighter, the 501st Legion AT-RT, and Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter. Now coming with two figures, and a higher price point, listen to find out if you should hunt these for your collection.
With a Jar-Jar-tastic Christmas haul, a new Sideshow 1/6 scale figure, and much more, it's all in this week's Star Wars Action News podcast!
