About TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast

TOY RUN is the only podcast solely about collecting, reviewing and appreciating Star Wars action figures. The show is hosted by Criz Bee from JediBusiness.com and Jake Stevens from From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com.  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. TOY RUN is hosted at www.toyruncast.com and can be found on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Podbean.

The website has a custom built toolbox which enables collectors to sort Star Wars action figures by movie appearance, movie sequence, species, profession (e.g. Bounty Hunters/Pilots), gender and more. In addition to the database the website features a wide variety of articles about collecting Star Wars action figures such as  interviews with community creators and the Hasbro Star Wars brand team, various event coverages, annual reviews, top 10 figure picks, photo galleries of collector’s collections and extensive galleries of stylized Star Wars action figure photography.  JediBusiness.com actively participates in the collecting community, it is part of the international The Force United fan group and the website was part of the collector group at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015 together with StarWarsActionNews.com, Yakface.com, JediTempleArchives.com and  JediNews.co.uk.
