Arnie and Marjorie are joined by Andrew for an in-depth three-person review of the first Star Wars figure from Hot Toys–The Shadow Trooper!

Star Wars Celebration is just 2 weeks away–have you gotten in line yet? Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie will be there running the Collector’s Social Area, part of the official Celebration Collector’s Track of events! On this week’s podcast, they run down the exclusives announced so far for the convention, and tell you about the one event no Star Wars collector should miss–the Swap Meet Saturday night at 7pm.

Also on this week’s show Andrew joins the hosts to look at the first figure in a new line of Star Wars figures: Hot Toys’ Shadow Trooper. After many years of creating the single best figure line for Marvel movie fans Hot Toys has now come to the Galaxy Far, Far Away. They’ve put seven figures up for pre-order already, but the first to ship was the black-armored trooper. Watch this week’s show to see how this figure ranks, and if you have to add it to your collection!

All this and more in this week’s Star Wars Action News!

SWAN Episode 444: Keep Feeling Fabrikation

Star Wars Action News Enhanced Podcast Feed

Marjorie and Arnie review three of Funko’s Star Wars Fabrikation figures — Yoda, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett! Plus a review of the new Star Wars novel Heir to the Jedi and a look at the first Hot Toys Star Wars figure–Sideshow’s Bespin Luke Skywalker!

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 Jedia 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!
