Show Notes

It's a news round up this week on Star Wars Action News. From a toy store from our childhood kicking the bucket (again) to Star Wars The Stage Show to an unexpected Clone Captain helmet from Attack of the Clones appearing on Starwarsshop.com, it's been a big week for Star Wars. Star Wars Action News recounts the news you need to know.

Then this week we sit down with Barry from eFX Collectibles. Last week, the much awaited Studio Scale X-Wing pre-order launched at efxcollectibles.com, and sales were surely bolstered by the last minute announcement that pre-orders placed by December 21st will be a signature edition at no extra cost. We ask Barry about the history of the X-Wing, and the eFX Clone Captain helmet.

Then Barry indulges us in discussing what it is like for high end collectible companies operating in a soft economy. Barry gives us first hand accounts and professional opinions on what the current global economic climate may mean for the future of Star Wars collectibles. This is an interview you should not miss.

And if all that isn't enough, our contest with Sideshow Collectibles where we're giving away a Premium Format Anakin Skywalker figure continues this week; listen to find out how to enter!

With a review of Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows and a surprise appearance by a Star Wars author, it's all this week on Star Wars Action News!
