Rancors with blue stripes, Stormtroopers in black armor, Darth Vader with slashes across his chest, battle droids on STAPs and Wampas and Tauntauns...these are the things people are hunting for. This week on Star Wars Action News, our Toys R Us employee bothan spy tells us which of these are showing up at Toys R Us, and in what quantity, and then our listeners fill us in on what they've been finding.
Also this week, we take a close look at the remaining 5 Force Unleasehd figures, Battle Damaged Darth Vader, Rahm Kota, The Shadow Guard, the EVO Trooper, and the Jumptrooper. Are these worth hunting for, and will the be on pegs for much longer? Listen to find out!
Finally, we have another e-bay charity auction this week to sponsor forum member Red 5's part in the Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk in Dallas Tx May 17th, 2008. Thanks to a lister's donation we are auctioning off a Gentle Giant animated R2-D2 Yoda maquette! Find the link at swactionnews.com.
Thank you for listening.

There is a fund raising event going on for Cystic Fibrosis One of SWAN's forum admins daughter is affected by CF and Red5's family is doing a walk in Dallas in a few weeks. Please check out the message below:
I wanted to take a moment and let my extended Star Wars family know that in May my daughter Cassidy is turning 4 and we are participating in the annual Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk on May 17th, 2008 here in Dallas. We have organized a group, Team Cassiebug, that is raising funds and would greatly appreciate any help anyone is willing to give. Our team goal is to raise $1,000 for our efforts and I wanted to make it fun by throwing a little Star Wars into the mix. If we can raise $500 I will wear my Stormtrooper Armor in the walk, but if we hit our goal of $1,000 I will wear my Darth Vader Costume.
