    Star Wars Action News – Episode 71

    Posted by Chuck | January 01, 2007 at 10:22 AM EDT |

         Marjorie and Arnie ring in the new year at a look back and a look forward. They look back to some of the items anticipated to be released in 2006 and weren’t, and look back upon their 2006 collecting resolutions to see how they fared. Then they look forward to 2007 and all the pre-orders which seem to have been pushed back and pushed back until they collapsed on collectors’ doorsteps. Arnie has taken severe action to combat this preorder problem...can his solution help you?
