Episode 309: Bust-y

Marjorie & Arnie are back from Chicago Wizard World and are here this week to review a handful of new purchases, all of which happen to be Gentle Giant mini-busts: The Entertainment Earth exclusive Revenge of the Sith Obi-Wan Kenobi, the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive McQuarrie Concept Snowtrooper, the Expanded Universe based Twi’lek Darth Talon, and another Twi’lek–Oola from Jabba’s palace. They discuss the details of these busts, and address the recent price increases among these and other high-end collectibles.

Also this week, Steve reports in from post-riot UK with what toys he’s finding on shelves, and Marjorie and Arnie run down the latest online finds, including some very cool new items from Kotobukiya that are not yet available in the states.

With TWO contests, one where you can win a custom Han in Carbonite Mighty Mugg and one from Backstage Toys where you can win the Toys R Us exclusive Battle of Geonosis figure set, it’s all on this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast!

TVC Wave 7 (the RFT, Logray, Fordo etc. wave) is now shipping from most online retailers, but it looks as if wave 8 and its revision case, which both include the Revenge of the Jedi recard figures, has been pushed back until October.
