The DorkLair is a Star Wars collecting podcast with emphasis on SH Figuarts and other import Star Wars action figures. Host Bill Drewnowski has been collecting and following Star Wars SH Figuarts since 2015 when the line first began, and it is the primary focus of his Star Wars collection. In each episode, Bill features one figure from his hobby room, the DorkLair, for discussion, review, and recommendation. Guests include members of the Star Wars collecting community who share varying levels of interest in SH Figuarts and imports in general.

Bill and guests sit down each week with figure in hand with the mission to appreciate the simple style and heroic action of the Star Wars SH Figuarts line in its entirety, one figure per episode. The DorkLair takes a look at all the hits and misses in the line, including honest criticism and which figures to skip completely. Often there is opportunity for comparison between other lines in similar scale including Hasbro’s The Black Series and Medicom’s MAFEX lines.

In addition to the feature figure, Bill and guests cover announcements, pre-orders, exclusives, new releases, collecting tips, and hunting strategies. From casual Black Series collectors looking to learn about imports for the first time, to SH Figuarts completionists seeking in-depth talk about their favorite releases, the DorkLair is a perfect place to enjoy import collecting.

Fun and Insightful

This is one of the best toy podcasts out there if you are interested in a wide range of 6/7” action figures. Their weekly reviews are pretty in-depth and worth going back in the catalog for. The show sounds professional and keeps up a good pace each episode. Highly recommended!

Great Toy Podcast

Always a fun, lively discussion of the weeks news and a concise, but thorough review of a recent figure. Good, thoughtful insight into rumors without beating them to death with the hosts opinions.
