TOY RUN Podcast


TOY RUN is the only weekly podcast solely devoted to collecting, reviewing and appreciating Star Wars action figures. The show is hosted by Criz Bee from and Jake Stevens from  When these long-time Star Wars collectors and good friends wanted to talk about Star Wars action figures even more than they do monthly on the Galaxy of Toys Podcast, they created TOY RUN.  The hosts who collectively have more than four decades of Hasbro Star Wars collecting experience as well as fond childhood memories of growing up in the 70’s and 80’s playing with Kenner action figures, strive to share their love and knowledge of collecting Star Wars figures with fellow fans of the hobby.
