Episode 300: Cracks in the Dam?

This week Star Wars Action News releases its 300th regular episode (not even counting all the breaking news episodes, Book Club episodes, and episodes of Republic Forces Radio Network)! And it’s got some good news, it seems from coast to coast, and even abroad, reports are coming in of new Wave 6 and 7 Vintage Collection figures being found! Listen as Marjorie and Arnie run down where these figures are being spotted, play listener store reports, and even address distribution again with Hasbro in Hasbro’s latest Q&A!

Also this week, Nathan gives his third segment looking back at the collector-loved line of Action Figure 2-Packs, and Jerry has a vintage viewpoint tying into Gentle Giant’s recent announcement of the Jumbo R2-D2 figure.

All that, and a review of Wave 7 in-hand, in this week’s 300th Star Wars Action News!
