Show Notes

Have you found the new Hasbro figures?  All Hasbro's new lines, Black Series 4-inch, Black Series 6-inch, Mission Series, and Saga Legends, are showing up across the US.  New toys are a welcome relief to the modern Star Wars figure collector after many months with no new releases, and on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast the coverage continues.  Listen to this week's podcast for a hands on review of the new 4-inch Black Series figures.  Then vintage Star Wars collector Jerry takes a look at the Saga Legends figures and provides his views on their five points of articulation.


Also on this week's show Arnie and Marjorie review Sideshow Collectibles' new Shaak Ti The Force Unleashed Premium Format figure.  They call it a "Premium Format" and it certainly comes with a premium price tag--is it worth it?  Listen to their review, and then join in the discussion on Sideshow's recent quality issues.  From bad paint to shipping damage, reports are rampant regarding poor quality control on the Sideshow products.  More, Sideshow's Customer Service seems less than willing to make it right.  Arnie provides his first-hand experiences on this week's podcast.

With Brock reviewing John Jackson Miller's new Star Wars novel Kenobi and a look at a Star Wars collectible that will shake your caboose, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast!



Action Figure Collectors;  If you enjoy collecting action figures also check out Issue 94 of the Marvelicious Toys podcast where Arnie, Marjorie, and Justin talk to former Hasbro Senior Product Designer David Vonner about the evolution and future of action figure collecting.  While Vonner worked on the Marvel line the information given applies to all action figures.  You can hear this interview at Marvelicioustoys.com.
