Episode 444: Keep Feeling Fabrikation
March 02, 2015
At Toy Fair International last week Funko was one of the few companies with lots of new Star Wars toys and collectibles on display. A rising Force in Star Wars collections, Funko has cornered the market on "cute" Star Wars figures. Last year they expanded that line to include Star Wars Fabrikations. They're part action figure, part plushie, and all adorable. On this week's Star Wars Action News Marjorie and Arnie look at three figures in this line: Boba Fett, Chewbacca, and Yoda!
For more high end Star Wars collectors, the first Star Wars figure from Hot Toys is shipping soon--the Shadow Stormtrooper! To prepare, listen to a review of that other Hot Toys Star Wars figure--the Bespin Luke Skywalker. Done as part of Sideshow's 1/6 scale figure line, this version of Luke was a partnership with Hot Toys and shows what fans can expect from the new company.
With a review of the new Star Wars novel Heir to the Jedi, a review of the Disney Store exclusive Empire Strikes Back figure set, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim announcements, and more, it's all in this week's Star Wars Action News show!
