This week on Star
Wars Action News, hosts Marjorie and Arnie have an experience that is familiar to
many collectors--the item you dread opening. Maybe because it was a purchase that
you don't know where to put, maybe it's something you don't want to face because
you spent more than you should, or perhaps it's something that seemed nice in theory
but isn't as nice as you'd thought. This week Marjorie holds up a mirror and makes
Arnie take a long look at an item he's dreaded opening... What is this item? Listen
to this week's show to find out!...
