With kind permission from Mike:

We are all fans of the Chive Cast podcast, but there is another that is published in harmony with the Vintage Pod: The Vintage Rebellion!
We are so much in alliance that this year, we have had Steve on our show and Grant has been on the Chive Cast. Two fairly different show formats but both aimed at Vintage collectors. Both worth subscribing to.

I urge you to give us a go, our podcast generally last between 4-5 hours but we only do one a month so you have plenty of time to listen to them.
We have been going for 2 years and are things appear to be going from strength to strength. We’ll all be at Celebration Europe, we are doing a live cooperation recording with Gus (representing the Chive Cast), and both Grant and i are involved with additional panels, Grant is on the collecting Track.
Our latest podcast is episode 25. We were originally called the SWFUK podcast, episodes 1-13 were all produced as the SWFUK, however after our live podcast stage and fan table at Anaheim last year we listened to the feedback and changed our name to reassure people that you didn’t need to be a Brit to listen and we were completely independent of all forums/facebook groups etc. Episode 14- the present are in the new format. All podcasts are still available.

We pride ourselves on packed shows where the majority of voices you hear are from our guests, and boy do we have a lot of them. I also almost always include items from the RS latest acquisitions thread.

This is what waits you in Episode 25

A month out from Celebration Europe and the Vintage Rebellion boys hit you with their longest podcast to date!

The show is packed with guests from start to finish and there truly is something for every collector in this months show. Marc Hockley is the guest interview this month as he discusses his collecting history, life size figures, 12 inch figures and his love of trade catalogues, along with many other items and stories along the way.

Continuing along the 12 inch discussion, 12 inch king pin Lee Bullock joins Grant Criddle for this months Oddballs whilst Pete Davis chats with both Mete Akin regarding Uzays and gets an update from Star Wars tracker main man Jared Cope.

On this months Rebel Briefings the Rebellion are joined by THREE guests! Stephane Faucourt joins Richard to discuss his latest Meccano book, Craig Spivey joins the team again to chat about his collection going on view for the public and Simon Graham chats with grant regarding the amazing Biker Scout helmet designs which will be on show at Celebration Europe. Talking of Celebration, the team announce giveaways, panels and the booth that we will all be involved in at the event.

And as if that wasn't enough guests Oliver Sudweeks joins me in the New Acquisitions to speak about his stunning Pink Poncho Leia carded sample and gives us some informative background on the item. Also on this months NA the team discuss AT-ST Walker's, Jawas, Diecast, Acamas masks amongst many other items.

Not only our longest show but probably our most action packed show too! Enjoy!

Thank you RS, sorry about the ramble

The Vintage Rebellion return with a slightly delayed show, but another epic show nonetheless.

This months main interview is with UK collector and friend of the podcast Simon McOwan. We discuss his Trilogo last 17 run that he's just completed, HC Ford and Sons record erasers amongst many other things, including his failed business enterprise with Dave Tree 16 years ago.

In Rebel Briefings, Rich covers a host of topics as he discusses AFA, Selling up, Javier's PBP book, Jawa prices going crazy and he also selects his highlights from Johnpaul Ragusa's Q&A that he participated in on Facebook group 'Jabba's Palace'.

Tony Damata joins Grant as they discuss in depth Vintage Star Wars music collecting, whilst Pete brings us a third part of the toy shop interviews as he speaks with Chris Hand from the Leicester Vintage Toy Shop.

As Usual Jez delves into the world of collectors newest acquisitions, this month he looks at vintage soap, Yoda hand puppets and miscard's amongst many other stunning items picked up within the community.

As well as all this and some other cracking nuggets, Rich decides to give humour a try, if that doesn't make this show a vital download then I don't know what will. The blokes totally quackers!!!

Enjoy the show.

Many thanks, we always cringe when someone says they went back to Ep 1 and gave it a go.... we didn't really hit our format until 14 or 15 or so.

The Vintage Rebellion's first show of 2017 starts off with a podcast that is jammed full of guests. The team remembers Carrie Fisher and discuss when they each got to meet the Princess, and then later in the show select their favourite Princess Leia moments.

Stuart, Grant and Rich are joined by collecting illumanti, Ron Salvatore, for this months main interview. Ron discusses a number of topics, from why he collects to Kenner shop displays. His knowledge is testament to the years of work he has put into the hobby.

In this months 'Beyond The Toys', Grant is joined by former guests, Mark Daniels and Craig Spivey to discuss a project they have been working on alongside Maped Helix, an exciting time as Helix have agreed to work alongside the three of them and produce a 40th Anniversary line with a nod to the Vintage items.

Rebel Briefings sees Rich bring you three interviews as he chats to PBP/Poch : Made in Spain Comprehensive Catalog author Javier Ruilopez, talks Top Toys with Stefan Callaer and chats with Brian Rachfal about his hunt for a certain item. As well as a couple of other items, Jez also reveals information about the 'Running Stormtroopers' newest challenge.

Pete is joined by Jared Cope for this months Market section as they look at 2016 prices and trends using the fantastic Star Wars Tracker.

And finally Jez brings us a host of goodies in Newest Acquisitions as he looks at a £10 MOC, trainers, 65 back Jawas amongst many other things, and you can all hold Jez accountable for significant price hikes in the Rebel Transport as he clearly articulates why it's the best ship in the toy range!!

Happy New Year.

Enjoy the Show.

The Vintage Rebellion return with another 5 hour epic and are joined by the delightful Amy Sjoberg to discuss amongst many other things, her love affair of Ewoks. Keeping on the topic of Ewoks, Pete welcomes Scott Haddow onto Market to look at the MOCwoks as they talk the Ewok MOC Market.


This months Beyond The Toys is for every Original Trilogy fanatic. Jamie Benning comes on the show to discuss his filmumentaries project. An original concept that merges film with documentary, a fresh reinvention of immersive 'making of' storytelling.


Richard welcomes GW Acrylic UK dealer, Jamie Brown onto this months Rebel Briefings as they discuss the new product line they are offering. Rebel Briefings also brings us an update on baggiegate as well as a feel good story after a collector completed a run in the most unexpected way through the generosity of a stranger.


Newest Acquisitions is full of more amazing purchases as Jez walks us through some amazing items, from a Kenner/Palitoy Zuckuss through to a Darth vader Speakerphone. Whilst Jez sells the Tantive XI forum in a passionate manner.


All this plus much more, makes this another show you'd be crazy to miss.


Enjoy the show!!!

I also have been listening to the podcast for the past couple of months. I am up to the Fall of 2015. This is one Yank that approves and wants more. I love the banter between you guys. I think poor Richard takes a lot of flak and quite enjoy the ribbing you give each other. The dulcet tones of Jez and powerhouse knowledge that Grant provides keep me coming back. Very informative and the guests are top notch. I love the fake commercials especially the gent who goes searching for vintage toys in a modern market (yellow pages spoof I believe). Keep up the good work and I'll keep listening.

Thanks Jonathan your feedback and support is very much appreciate. Is banter an American word or are we rubbing off on you? Either way we're chuffed. We've had a lot of feedback on Jez's dull tones and Grant certainly is a fountain of knowledge. You can always tell when we're getting closer to meeting up as the guys suddenly get very nice to me. Just wait until Orlando, they'll be laying rose petals at feet! Alas, we stopped doing the ads as we got a lot of feedback saying they weren't everyone's cup of tea - just like Stu I suppose.

Cheers again
Rich

I need to report this post to the moderators!!!
Richard's account has clearly been hacked! That was almost half way funny, and Rich certainly isn't funny, so I smell a rat. And no, when I say smell a rat, I'm not talking about his stinking leg in plaster! Rich doesn't do funny.

Thanks for the kind comment Jonathan, we're glad you approve. We'll ramp the banter up against Rich during the next one. B)

Are you guys ready for Episode 34 'Brian's Angels'??
The Vintage Rebellion welcome stand out collector Brian Angel to the Podcast to discuss his collecting habits, we discuss Facebook, Engineering Pilots and his R5-D4 focus amongst many other topics.
Rich discusses display and shipping ideas with Iain Sanderson and Johnpaul Ragusa.
Whilst I host, possibly the most crazy NA ever with a random Tuna Fish advert and a discussion on Yak Face's Muff! We discuss our favourite TIE Fighter from the range and highlight an absolute steal at an estate sale.
On Beyond The Toys, Grant welcomes artist Chris Moore where they discuss Star Wars Wallpaper. The Star Wars wallpaper you may have had as a kid, the very same wallpaper designed by Chris Moore!
This months market is short and sweet as Pete looks at the 2016 Kenner 12a market prices and the tracker top 5 'Ties' things up nicely.
All this plus the other usual gibbering with Stu at the helm from start to finish.
Enjoy the show!!!

If you thought last month's podcast was different, wait until you hear this one!




There are a few special one off changes, but we are not going to give away anymore than that.




Rich brings us an exciting, nay, game changing update on something which was hypothesised last month.




Rich is joined by a plethora of guests with Josh Blake and Bill Wills kicking it all off discussing a little known droids factory mockup. This is closely followed by Stephen Danley talking about his new website, facebook group and podcast as we discuss, Star Wars at the movies. We join Jamie Brown for a quick GW Acrylic update, but wrap up discussing the chances of a new fake in the hobby.




Jez hosts yet another ram jammed New Acquisitions section with items ranging from $1 figures and car boot sale finds to extremely rare Hungarian carded Fetts and Uzay ERGs. There is discussion about an amazing line up of Die Cast Landspeeders and the crew have a huge nostalgia #hit with some special vintage items, and the lads take a look at Darth Vaders Star Destroyer.




This month Richard is hit with the Rapid Fire questions and is truly called out as a MOC collector.




Join us and our 7 guests for what may be the biggest temporary shakeup since George Lucas dropped the revenge title in 1982!

Once again, it was a delight to listen to the show. I thought Rich and Jez did a smashing job of piloting the podcast through another four hour tour de force of Star Wars vintage gold. Really enjoyed the guests and hearing more from Bill Wills, Josh Blake and Stephen B Danley. Rich I appreciate the kind words but the true nice guys are the ones you have with you on that show!!!! Congratulations, from a father of five, to Stew Skinner and his new addition. The sky is the limit with this podcast and shares a spot with my other favorites like the Chivecast and Galaxy of Toys. Thank you again for the hours of entertainment!

THE VINTAGE REBELLION PODCAST : EPISODE 38 - An Aussie, The Ashes and a Freaky Chewbacca


The boys return for their 38th episodic show with friend and fellow collector Simon McOwan joining the team for guest hosting duties.


Forget the Return of the Jedi, this month sees the Return of the Quiz, with accusations of cheating flying around on all sides!


Aussie Lee Harris takes a nostalgic look back at his childhood, whilst also discussing his current collecting stance, as well as depressing everyone with a tale of burning toys!


Grant is joined by Jonathan McElwain for the first part discussion on highlights for the US food market for the original Star Wars movie. Jonathan is an expert so expect to learn a lot about a subject rarely discussed. Yum, Yum!


In this months NA, Jez and the lads (plus an extra 2 special guests) discuss a variety of purchases including variants, some in the wild 3 pack finds, a lovely story which shows that even Cloud City Clouds can have a silver lining, and the mighty Imperial Shuttle gets the once over.


Rich has the pleasure to interview Ross Barr, the face of CAS and brings us 3 stories from the vintage collecting community.


So much rammed into just over 5 hours we hope you enjoy the show!!!!!!!

The Vintage Rebellion returns with a plethra of changes. Simon McOwan joins the team for his first show as a full time host, alongside Andy goulding who joins the team as guest host for this month.

Derek Ho joins Stuart for this months main interview as we delve into his collection and growing up with Star Wars in Singapore.

The lads get together for possibly the most varied New Acquisitions yet, where the conversation ranges from the Popy range to Airfix kits. Simon pulls a Hutchinson with a Palitoy catalogue, Richard speaks of a beater Kea Moll and gets introduced to Uncle Gundy beaties. The main element is an in depth discussion on Luke Skywalker original... or is it Farmboy???

Rebel Briefings sees the guys bravely tell Ron Salvatore (from a good distance away) that he's got something wrong on a SWCA blog post. This is followed up with a cracking interview on a diorama display and a closing of the baggiegate story... for now.

Grant says goodbye to the podcast with his final Beyond The Toys section, as he speaks with Jonathan McElwain for the concluding part of looking at food tie ins.

We also have a Farthest From special where we hear from Edd Grant, Dan Burgess, Scott Cato, Stephen Savory, Darren Quinn and Jason Smith who all attended the show.

And watch out at the end as Episode 40 will see the team return to a permanent five piece and we announce the final member to make up the crew.

We hope you enjoy the show.

EPISODE 40 OUT TODAY!
On this month's Vintage Rebellion Podcast, the team are joined by Shawn Moynihan for the main interview. Shawn discusses a whole plethora of topics, including his love for The Holiday Special, putting marbles up astromechs bottoms and how he actually broke his jaw several years ago.

Rich has the pleasure of talking to the best looking collector, if not in the Galaxy then certainly in the Southern Hemisphere on the latest updates of the reproduction blasters, whilst the team thrash out a lively debate on those collecting blues, which are rippling across the collecting circles with some great advice for those affected.

In this episodes packed New Acquisitions (NA) section, the team discuss a veritable banquet of vintage gorgeousness. Too much to cover here in detail but the items include; Bargain carded figures, Meccano cardbacks, German drinking glasses, 12" Palitoy Fett, awesome Trilogo carded figures, a run of Model Trem Darth Vader variants and more fantastic items. Jez is joined by 4 guests; Justin Lea gives us a great update on his Diecast Landspeeder collection, Iain Sanderson and an extra special guest braved the night of the Florida storms to tell us all about Iain's awesome looking ESB Yoda store display and finally Chris Georgoulias is the inaugural member to join exciting new concept 'The Vintage Rebellion Alliance', providing the crew with some fantastic information about Speeder Bike Prototypes, to supplement a discussion on possibly Kenner's most perfect Vintage vehicle.

The team also welcome back the return of Pete, who is in fine form. Returning with Pete is of course the Market section where he introduces a new Gimcrack concept whilst we also see the return of his popular top five.

Welcome Home Pete... It's family!

Thank you for helping us past 60,000 downloads! It truly is great to see the Podcast increase it's listener base :)

Fresh Episode launched today!

On the 41st edition of the Vintage Rebellion podcast Stuart and Richard chat to Jason West about all things Jawa, and find out some fascinating information neither have ever heard before.


In the New Acquisitions section the lads cover some wonderful purchases which have been shown off on the forums and Facebook. The team is joined by Commander Clint Garniss (Tantive XI) who speaks about his recent trading card finds, Josh Lipscomb who has a wonderful story to tell about an entire 12bk find, 13 of them in fact as seen on the IC Facebook group. Plus once again, as part of the Vintage Rebellion Podcast Alliance Chris Georgoulias gives a wonderful narrative on 2 x Sy Snootles and the Rebo Band concept items that we guarantee you've never seen online before. Something truly special.


Rich takes time out to chat to James Gallo about one of the greatest Star Wars auctions of all time before the lads get together to have an old fashioned chinwag on the state of some loose figures.


Si takes his first spin at hosting the Quiz. The team hope it will be his last as it successfully exposes them as a bunch of laser brains.


And the return of the market continues with a look at the recent Propstore auction whilst also returning is Tracker Top 5 and the new monthly Gimcracker award.


All this plus much much more on The Vintage Rebellion Podcast.


Enjoy the Show!!!!!

I have to say, The Vintage Rebellion has become my fave Star Wars podcast. The mix of personalities and hilarious ball-breaking among the guys makes for a fun listen, and the vintage content is comprehensive and in-depth. Each host effectively covers a discrete topic in each episode, so there's a great mix of material and differing approaches across the usual 4-5 hour running length. Yes, 4-5 hours!

I'm a big fan of the Chivecast, but occasionally it can feel a little too insular in referencing a specific social group of notable collectors. The Vintage Rebellion casts the net wider, and therefore speaks more broadly to fans, enthusiasts and collectors from a range of different backgrounds as a result.

Big recommendation. :)

Wow thanks very much Johnny. When i pointed out your kind words to the lads they came out with comments like 'That makes it all worth it' and 'That makes me want to get on and record another one tonight!' It's great to read such positivity. Thank you so much.

Wow thanks very much Johnny.
It's thoroughly deserved, good Sir. The podcast is a terrific mix of concerted silliness (the most recent song quiz was so random I couldn't help but laugh in disbelief), serious information (the 'chief' Jawa discussion was most interesting) and great banter. The new 'gimcrack' segment is also great, and a really fun way to look at the bits and bobs that are often overlooked (in favour of the obvious) in vintage commentary.

However, if we have to hear Rich use the term 'repo' for reproduction one more time, there'll be an angry throng wielding pitchforks at his door before he knows it. ;)

But I look forward to many more episodes, and thank you and the guys for committing to such an extensive show month after month. :)

Whoah there, I'm guessing Jez has asked you to say that. :grin: Anyway, I do say repro but not re-pro and agree repo is just plain wrong. My accent is like my cohosts, quite thick at times, so I'm always amazed when I talk to people online and they understand me.

cheers for the great feedback, as Jez said it means a lot to us and is what keeps us going. Keep in touch!

On this months show Stuart and Jez chat to Jesse Cedar Soberman about his collecting habits through the years, whilst they take a look at Jesse's obsession with the 3 packs.


Richard presents four stories during Rebel Briefings, looking at updates to current affairs from Grading Toni's to the neverending battles.


In the New Acquisitions section Jez is delighted to announce that The Vintage Rebellion Alliance has recruited another collecting legend; Ron Salvatore. The lads cover a plethora of vintage purchases shown off on the forums and Facebook groups. Items range from some fun vintage stickers to the Diecast Tie Bomber. Collectors returning from the wilderness and others completing their loose run. The section ends with an indepth discussion of the AT-ST Scout Walker. Oh and Jez comes up with a concept for a new Facebook group, cuz we all need another one of those!


Simon and Richard attempt to win a Gimcrack badge in Market this month and beat other submissions from listeners. Previous winners Jez and Stuart are conscious to not rest on their laurels.


This month sees the introduction of The Senate. There's a healthy debate between JohnPaul Ragusa, Ian Cowley, Todd Osborn and Mark Baker about everyones love-to-hate topic, Toy Tonis. Listen in for some well though out arguements enlightened thinking on the subject.


There is also a review of recent events the team have attended, Richard takes us through a look at the Echo Live event including some short chats with other attendees, whilst Stuart, Pete, Jez and Simon review their trip over to Belgium to attend the FACTs event.


All this plus much much more including a usual dose of whining from Jez.


Enjoy the show!!!

***** The 4th Holiday Special NOW LIVE *****


The final podcast of 2017 from The Vintage Rebellion is full of festive cheer as we throw the format out the window and chat about all things Star Wars.


With a new movie released the boys discuss The Last Jedi, so if you haven't seen it yet beware there will be spoilers. We also hear from Michael Cooper, Jason Smith, Darren Quinn, Rob Marsh, Steve Savory, Corey Galal, Carl Dennis and Daniel Burgess on their initial reactions to the movie.


The boys take a fond look at some of the events they've attended this year from Celebration and Farthest Froms to Empire Day and Echo Live, and who can forget the FACTs trip!!! Steve Savory acts as The Vintage Rebellion roaming reporter as he talks to star of the screen in live interviews from Wantage Comic Con.


Stuart hosts a three part quiz over the course of the show to see who really is the second best man on the podcast after himself. It will surprise you who finishes in last place, or probably not actually.


The team recollect the last 12 months of The podcast, as they look at the changes that have taken place as well as each member reflecting on their personal sections.


Jez recollects fond memories of his magnificent achievement as The Running Stormtrooper during 2017, including some unheard footage.


The team also take a look at their personal collecting journeys from the year and where they hope their collecting goes in 2018.


Shawn Moynihan joins up with Pete to create The Vintage Rebellion 12 days of Star Wars Christmas, something joyous to look out for during the show.


As well as all this we have plenty of chitter chatter, randomness and festive music for you to enjoy over the Christmas period.


We here at The Vintage Rebellion would like to wish each and every one of our listeners a stonking Christmas and a wonderful and healthy New Year.


Thank you for all your support, here's to the next 12 months!!!


Enjoy the Show!!


See you in 2018!

Its a New Year but the Vintage Rebellion team are back and doing what they do best.


Stuart and Simon are joined by Jon Aves for an interview to discuss his collecting and early years. Jon is a huge Palitoy collector and some of the items he has owned have been nothing short of stunning.


Rich looks at a successful story as a repro seller gets his rewards, a plea to help Wrighty find his parcel and then delves into the SWCA archive to discuss a mini-rig.


During this months New Acquisitions the lads discuss some bargain open bubble Palitoy figures, Star Wars Play-Doh, a listeners Girlfriend sorting him right out and a beautiful collecting friendship. Plus the podcast is further enhanced with Chris Georgoulias and Ron Salvatore once again stepping up as The Vintage Rebellion Alliance to educate us all on the unreleased second wave of Ewoks and the iconic Landspeeder.


Continuing on from his fanzine article this month, Peter continues his delve into Star Wars unofficial computer games from the early 80s.

Episode 45 drops whilst the UK is covered in snow, which is fitting as the episode has a very Hoth feel.


Richard has recently been to Finse, Norway for an event based on Hoth and hosted at the filming location, this month instead of a feature interview we hear all about the trip which includes interviews with others who attended the event or presented. Some great stories of the filming era which you may or may not know but definitely worth a listen.


Stuart takes over hosting duties on Newest Acquisitions whilst Jez is at school. The team look at several items which include a Pre-production Diecast TIE-Fighter wing, a mint Return of the Jedi two pack, 12" Luke Skywalker Bespin transparency and a beaten up Luke Skywalker Model Trem. We hear from two collectors as they discuss their recent purchases, Dallas Ewen discusses his Grubee exclusive cups which were only available in food outlets around Winnipeg, Canada and Blake Bundy tells us about picking up his final 12 back to complete the run. Of course NA finishes with a look at one specific item, this month the lads look at the Hoth Ice Planet Adventure Set where the Vintage Alliance come up with more great information.


In a new section, Peter looks at other non action figure related Hoth items that may tickle people's fancy. Along with the top 5, Simon attempts to dazzle us with his Gimcrack but can it beat Richard's controversial entry.


Rich looks at a range of topics during Rebel Briefings, from the current collecting climate including asking whether POTF MOCs were sold in the UK and whether current eBay practices are ethical. This is balanced out with an update to Brian Angel's quest and some more news of great fundraising ventures.


With Peter undergoing a new section, Simon jumps in to reinvent the Market segment, during this element Simon takes a look at the market place from eBay to auction houses, plus takes a look at current AT-AT prices, has this huge piece become the flavour of the month???


The podcast is filled with so much more, from the usual quiz to Richard trying to dig himself out of a Detolf hole, it's all here. Hey, even Jez drops by to give us a Running Stormtrooper update!!!


Enjoy the show!

Chris Georgoulias joins Stuart and Richard for this months main interview. Chris discusses a plethora of things including his work with the SWCA and his recent trip to Death Valley amongst many other topics.

Newest Acquisitions sees the team look at Palitoy, Helix, Australian Pencil cases, Canadian 2 packs as well as many other items including their focus topic of the Palitoy Droid Factory. Mark Daniels and Chris Hogg also drop by to discuss their recent purchases.


During the second instalment of Pete's new segment, he follows on from the Droid Factory discussion looking at other droid items outside of the toy line. He brings us the Droid Factory top 5 and can Simon finally win Gimcrack of the month? Don't bet on it!


Simon delves into the market where he looks at eBay and recent auction sales.


Whilst Iain Sanderson joins Stuart for a follow up to his Interview from Episode 1. Iain revisits all the topics he discussed four years ago, has his collecting habits changed?

All this plus much more including a Running Stormtrooper update.
