Episode 328: The High Cost of Collecting
New toys have been found coast to coast. Despite Hasbro’s intent that new Star Wars figures be held back until Jan 30, many stores are putting new figures and vehicles out early breaking street date. What is out there and where can you find it? On this week’s Star Wars Action News, Marjorie and Arnie run down all the new Star Wars items hitting. In addition to new Hasbro toys, they run down the new Valentine’s Day items showing up at Target, and post-holiday discounts as well.
But almost as shocking as new figures found before street date is the new sticker price. Star Wars figures have gone up $1 in price in 2012, and deluxe figures with mini-rig vehicles and mid sized vehicles have gone up even more. What does this mean for collectors? Hear the hosts’ take, and then give your thoughts at 415-508-JEDI.
With a review of the new Star Wars novel Shadow Games and some Star Wars Christmas Gifts, it’s all this week on Star Wars Action News!
