Funko Papercraft Star Wars Playset

Funko has also announced a new Star Wars BOXOS papercraft two-sided display featuring the Bespin Carbon Freezing Chamber and Gantry. Now before you dismiss this out of hand, the figures included with the display are about 4″ tall each, so you may be able to use it as an action figure display for Hasbro, LEGO or Kubrick figures (the last two being more appropriate stylistically). I plan on picking up a set when they are available to test out.

Episode 280: De-Vinylmation

Star Wars Action News’ Berent was at Downtown Disney last Sunday for the release of the Disney Star Wars Vinylmation figures. Listen this week as Berent reports from in line, talking to other Star Wars fans anxiously awaiting the release of the Vinylmation figures, and then provides us with a hands-on review of these new, hot toys. Then listen in to Berent’s exclusive interview with Mike Sullivan, the artist and designer behind the Star Wars Vinylmation figures who was on hand at Disney to interview these figures for devoid fans. And if that’s not enough, we have a chance for you to win a signed Super-Chaser Ghost Obi-Wan Kenobi figure! If you want to win this incredibly hard to find figure, listen to find out how to win!

Also this week, Arnie and Marjorie discuss the latest price hikes on Hasbro figures at retail stores, and review the Funko Boba Fett lamp.
