On this week’s episode we begin our new Figure Focus segment where I break down the history of a single vintage Star Wars action figure. The first figure in the spotlight is Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) from the original Kenner line. This little droid captured the hearts of millions and sparked the imaginations of children everywhere. This week we explore his history, some fun character facts, and his place in pop-culture. Also on this week’s show, Justin announces his new contest where you have the chance to win the new 6-Inch Black Series Han Solo, Finn Stormtrooper, and First Order Flametrooper FREE!
6-Inch Black Series Contest:
The Star Wars Collectors Galaxy Podcast is giving away three of the hottest new Black Series Action Figures! I’ve recently acquired the new Han Solo, Finn Stormtrooper, and First Order Flametrooper figures, and I want to help you add them to your collection! The rules of the contest are very simple:
- Go to our Facebook Page and click the “Like” button
- Find the Pinned Post at the top of the page and add a photo comment of the coolest thing in your collection.
The photo you share can be of anything, like a diorama, artwork, or even a display case full of figures. If it’s cool and it’s Star Wars related, I want to see it! On next week’s show I will announce three finalists, and then we will let the community decide who wins by voting on the SWCG Facebok Page.
