We are looking to significantly increase our team of volunteers to help out with our sites and our shows! These are unpaid, volunteer positions but many of our staff have used this experience to help them find paying gigs down the road!

We need motivated, dedicated people with a passion for their hobby and some free hours each week. Is that you? Read on!

Toy Photographers – Star Wars Action News, Marvelicious Toys

Do you buy the latest Star Wars Black Series, 3.75-inch, or Marvel Legends toys wave by wave? Or are Hot Toys, statues, and busts your addiction?  If the answer is yes and you’re great with a lens we are looking for toy photographers for the Star Wars and Marvel lines!

If interested please e-mail arniec@marvelicioustoys.com


Video Podcast Editors – Star Wars Action News, Marvelicious Toys, Now Playing Podcast 

We need skilled artistic individuals to help add the pictures and videos to the shows we do each week. A strong sense of visual style is required as well as personality to take the audio-only shows and turn it into a multimedia experience. You’ll be joining a great team of video enhancers who can help show you the ropes. If you have a Mac we can provide professional video editing software for your use, or if you have Windows you need to bring your own.

If interested please e-mail arniec@marvelicioustoys.com

Are you a wizard at Photoshop and picture editing? Then we need your help! Duties would involve creating banner ads, Facebook and Twitter headers, and more! Specifically – cover art for Now Playing Podcast retrospective series, giveaway promotional items for conventions, logos for Star Wars Action News, and other designs as needed. Take a look at the Now Playing Podcast archives page and if you think you can make items like those seen there then drop us an e-mail!

Content Managers – Now Playing Podcast, Books & Nachos, Star Wars Action News and Marvelicious Toys

Our sites have hundreds of thousands of photos for thousands of toys and collectibles.  We’re looking for individuals to help update our web content and keep our galleries up-to-date.  No Photoshop or Web Programming experience needed, just high bandwidth, free time, and a knowledge of (or willing to learn about) Star Wars and Marvel toys!  Anything else needed we’ll teach you.

If interested please e-mail arniec@marvelicioustoys.com

Photo Editors – Star Wars Action News and Marvelicious Toys

Is your second language Photoshop? Do you know your gamma from your luminescence? If you have a talent for photos and an eye for art we would love your help! Each week we take hundreds of photos for Star Wars Action News and Marvelicious Toys and we need you to help us sort, crop, and edit the photos before posting them online!

The work is deadline driven, and there are “crunch times” during Toy Fair in February and Comic-Con in July.

If interested please e-mail arniec@marvelicioustoys.com

Audio Editors – Star Wars Action News, Books & Nachos, Marvelicious Toys, Now Playing

Do you know Audacity and want to be part of our shows? We are looking for audio editors to help out with all of our podcasts!

The work is deadline-driven so reliable, stable candidates only please.
The work involves taking the raw audio recorded for any of our shows, and editing to streamline content, insert show bumpers, add music, etc.

The average work would be 4-6 hours per show on Marvelicious or SWAN, with a turnaround time of 1-3 days. Now Playing is perhaps 20 hours or more (depending on your speed) with a normal turnaround time of 2-3 weeks..so 5-6 hours per week. Books & Nachos takes maybe 1 hour or 2 but is far less consistent and would be “in addition to” work on another show.

There would also be some longer weeks of “crunch time” during weekend convention shows and “weekend of release” Now Playing shows.

If interested, please e-mail arniec@swactionnews.com and include which show(s) you’d be interested in helping with! Prior experience with Audacity (or other audio editing tools and a willingness to work with an Audacity-compatible format) is a must, but we will train after that.


All applicants need to be 18 or over and willing to sign a standard non-disclosure agreement.

We really could use your help so if interested please e-mail arniec@swactionnews.com
