    Feb 17, 2020: Let's Get Hyperreal - Video Podcast

    New York Toy Fair is just around the corner, and while Hasbro seems to have given away the secrets early, Star Wars Action News hosts Arnie and Marjorie think a few more surprises are on the way.

    One of those is likely Hasbro’s Hyperreal Bespin Luke Skywalker figure from The Empire Strikes Back. Is that something to get exited over? In prep, join Marjorie and Arnie in this episode where they get Hyperreal, and hands-on, with Hasbro’s Hyperreal Darth Vader figure.

    Then join them this weekend for all the coverage LIVE from New York, including Hasbro, LEGO, Gentle Giant, Kotobukiya, and more! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

    Jan 7, 2020: Star Wars Collectors' 2019 Year in Review - Video Podcast

    Jan 7, 2020: Star Wars Collectors' 2019 Year in Review - Video Podcast

    For Star Wars collectors 2019 was a mix of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    The good included the most detailed Star Wars vehicle/playset ever in the form of Jabba's Sail Barge. Plus the Black Series 6-inch line continued strong with great offerings from Clone Wars Armor Obi-Wan Kenobi to The Mandalorian, plus several Rise of Skywalker figures.

    Mixed in with that was some bad: The limited-articulation 3.75" line that had been a mainstay for years was cancelled. The Vintage Collection filled that niche, but lacked in new figures and in-store availability. The new 5-inch Galaxy of Adventures line didn't click with many collectors.

    Then in the ugly was the limited availability of Retro Collection figures at Target--especially the multi-colored Darth Vader. And what, no Baby Yoda toys?

    In this new Star Wars Action News podcast the team comes together to reflect on what the last year brought--and what they hope the new year can deliver!

    Feb 19, 2019: Hasbro's Toy Fair 2019 - Video Podcast

    All of 2019 feels like a slow build-up to the biggest cinematic event of the year: Star Wars Episode IX in December. With "Triple Force Friday" already announced for October it's clear many of the toys and figures of 2019 will be a secret for eight more months. Yet Hasbro still had plenty of Star Wars to share in both 3.75-inch and 6-inch scales at this year's Toy Fair International in New York. Join Arnie and Marjorie now for all the information directly from New York!

Customer Reviews

Turtlemoht ,

Real passion and great chemistry!

I’ve been in and out of Star Wars collecting but this podcast has been a constant for me. As it’s presented by a husband and wife team the hosts have an enviable chemistry, cheery personalities and real passion for the (very real) addiction of Star Wars collecting. Unusually high production values are also a big bonus.
Give it a listen (as long as you don’t mind weekly Starbucks references- some people prefer brown liquid to coffee)!

What happened!?

Used to be a 'must not miss' great weekly podcast, but they seem to have given it way!? Unfortunately, it’s very rare to get new/regular episodes nowadays. This is especially disappointing considering we are in an new Star Wars Disney cycle.

Gambitonemillion ,

Great production values

These guys are very passionate about Star Wars and also about building community and friendships. They know their stuff about Star Wars and can talk your ear off about it.
