Show Notes

There are 16 more shopping days until Christmas, and while time is ticking there is still time to get your shopping done online. Here to help with that arduous task of finding just the right gift for the Star Wars fan in your life is Star Wars Action News. From rare (but not too expensive) art prints to rare (and very expensive) statues to video games to toys, we provide you a selection of Star Wars gifts for the discerning gift recipient, and I guarantee there are some items on this list that you can even buy for the Star Wars fan who you THINK has everything...

Also this week we take a look at Steve Sansweet's new, revised Star Wars Encyclopedia 3 Volume set, and have a brief tribute to Sci-Fi legend, Forrest J Ackerman.

Finally, we, together with our friends at Sideshow Collectibles, want to give one lucky listener a chance to win a Premium Format Anakin Skywalker figure. Listen for details on how you can win this prize.
