This week's episode of Star Wars Action News is like Herman Melville's classic Moby Dick. Only instead of Ahab it's Arnie. And instead of being really really long it's only about an hour. And instead of a great white whale it's an even bigger treasure: white carded figures that have slipped out before release date. Marjorie and Arnie take you on a tour of stores trying to find employees who blithely disregard street dates in the name of efficiency. And we play voicemails from at least one listener who DID capture his great white toy. Where did he get it, and how did he get out without the dreaded sign of "Sale Not Allowed"? Listen to find out!
Also this week, we have a hands-on review of the very high-end collectible Yoshitoku Vader, initially offered up for order at Celebration Japan. This is an item few will own, but listen to our podcast to find out what makes this such an incredible piece.
With Scott from Tulsa and Nathan from the EU, its another great episode of Star Wars Action News as we ramp up for ComicCon!
And if you're going to San Diego Comic Con don't forget, *Friday, July 25th at 8 p.m. *will be the Star Wars Action News dinner, and starting between 10 and 10:30 we'll be joining the line at the Mission Bay Toys R Us for the line party! RSVPs for the dinner aren't required, but they are requested so we can tell the restaurant how many people we expect. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you're coming, or PM arniec in the Star Wars Action News forums. Stay tuned to swactionnews.com for location information.
