This week we bring you our in depth review of the Disney Parks Sandcrawler and cover the heroes from the Power of the Force line in 1997. We also take a look at the results of Hasbro’s Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Poll.

Not enough? Well we also talk about Canadian coins, BIll Hader, Luke’s Medal, Lando’s clothing, 2-1B’s lack of fame and Mac does an awful impression of Lando that for some reason Dan just loves.
Along with our review of the Disney Parks Sandcrawler on this episode, we also have a video review up on our YouTube page. You can find a link to that and an album of hi-res photos on our website.
This week on The Sandcrawler Mac and Dan are joined by Matt Cardona aka Zack Ryder from the WWE! Matt is an epic wrestling figure and toy collector and a big fan of the Power of the Force line. In our Collector’s Spotlight we find out what kind of collector he is and what the Power of the Force means to him. And we couldn’t have such a big fan of Power of the Force without covering the next wave in our series. So along with Matt we take a look at the Power of the Force villain figures released in 1997. Thanks to Rebelscum.com for their always excellent archival information. Big thanks to Matt for coming on the show and sharing his thoughts on Star Wars and wrestling toys!
