Rich has the pleasure of talking to Craig Stevens about his new book focusing on the impact of Star Wars in the UK. We then discuss a couple of topical points in the hobby including a great act of honesty.




In Market join Simon for a ramble through rare and interesting items sold on eBay in the last month, hear about the auction action from UK salesrooms and the ones to watch in the coming month.




With help from new Vintage Alliance member Bob Steffey, the team take at look at the awesome Snowspeeder. Brian Angel drops by to discuss his latest R5-D4 pickup and the team also look at a host of other great acquisitions from UK bubble bath to soot covered Luke Hoth Mint on Cards.

Welcome to Episode 48 of the Vintage Rebellion, bit later than normal.


Andy Goulding joins the team for this months focal interview as we delve into early collecting, shows round the UK in the 1990s and we delve into his love of movie props.


In this month's Rebel Briefings Rich brings not one, not two, not three but four amazing discoveries that collectors have been hunting for nearly 20 years from pre-production items to packaging to bootlegs to production figures. Helping him delve into one of these topics both Paul Chu and Todd Hudson drop by to offer their expertise.


In NA the lads review some brilliant bargains, a cast and crew grail piece, a Japanese Pop Up Book and are joined by Andy Preston who talks about his fantastic Pye records' store display. The section is concluded with an in depth look at the POTF Skiff with help from Ron Salvatore. Keep an ear out for when Simon outs S#####7 as a shill bidder extraordinaire!


You don't get many of those to the pound in Markets this month. More interesting and interestingly priced items from eBay are covered. Simon also takes a look at a recent sale at Gildings Auctioneers and invites the team to take their pick from a wonderful selection of movie posters offered by the Prop Store in an upcoming sale. The results are surprising.


Pete takes us on an extended look at NA when he examines the Skiff in more detail, looking at what else the Skiff turned up on for all you Skiff focus collectors, as well as bringing us his Gimcrack of the Month and his well loved Top Five.


All this plus plenty more including Weakest Link and stay listening for the outro when Jez has an unusual theory about people not liking TLJ the first time.


Enjoy the show!!!

***** EPISODE 49 LIVE *****


The Vintage Rebellion celebrates their four year anniversary by giving our listeners a six hour delight.


Stuart and Simon are joined by 12 inch collecting legend Lee Bullock, where he discusses his early memories, trading in the current climate and of course his expertise in Star Wars dollies.


Rebel Briefing sees Rich look at our hopes for Vintage Star Wars at Celebration before delving into an old discussion on 20/21 backs and more.


In this months NA the lads review some more awesome purchases from across Facebook and the forums. They even take a look into the future, from the past. The section is completed with an in depth look at the Darth Vader Carry Case with a little help from Chris G. Who had ever heard of a Red Darth Vader Carry Case??


The Market section becomes fully operational with the Death Star eBay find. Plus Simon scurries around the UK auction action and visits Steve Taylor at Toy Planet to hear about a 90s dealer stock that time forgot.


Pete takes us beyond the NA as he looks at some strange Darth Vader items as well as bringing us a top fiver related to the heavy breathing Dark Lord. And of course he brings us Gimcrack of the month as once again Jez doesn't fully understand the concept.


And what better way to celebrate four years of this show than to have Episode 11 guest Bruce White return to catch up during What's New *****Cat.


All this plus the usual quiz, Celebration update, and many moments of abusing the weaker members of the cast (Richard, Jez and Simon).


Enjoy the show!!!

It's The Vintage Rebellions 50th Episode, so we launch with an extended episode (yes extended if you can believe that) to celebrate the milestone with no less than 9 (yes NINE) guests. The team welcome a whole array of guests to celebrate.


Chris Porteous joins Stuart and Richard for this months interview as the boys discuss Canadian items, Tantive forum and Quebec items as well as many other things.


In the New Acquisitions section the lads are joined by not 1 but 5 guests, all welcomed on to share their knowledge. The items discussed range from mint carded figures to Star Wars arcade games, from store displays to everyone's favourite Twin Pod Cloud Car.


Rebel Briefings covers a range of new discoveries in the community including some amazing store displays. You'll be bangers to miss it.
It's a bumper Beyond the Newest Acquisitions where we scour the collecting universe for Twin Pod Cloud Car collectables, and in Gimcrack Richard pulls all the wrong strings.


Simon waxes lyrical (drones on) about more exciting and varied eBay sales, gets all animated about the amount of bargains turning up at UK salesrooms, is (thankfully) speechless regarding the recent Hakes sale and speaks to Mark Daniels who 'fesses up about running the re-seal market.


It's a podcast full of records, as this month's quiz is so long it could be a podcast in its own right.


To end this special edition we welcome back to speak to Edd Grant in this months What's New *****cat as we revisit his collecting habits since we spoke to him three years ago.


All this plus all the usual shenanigans and banter.


Enjoy the show!

After last months epic seven hour plus podcast the Vintage Rebellion return with a far more manageable time. It's just a 4 man team this month as Simon goes on a soul searching mission to make himself an actual likeable individual.


Rebel Commando focus collector and host of Sixth Scale Scavengers Podcast Christopher James Leddy (vintageviewport) join Stuart and Richard to discuss his collection and his collecting habits.
Rebel Briefings is jam packed as Richard takes us through several topics including reproduction M.O.C.s and Canadian Jigsaw puzzles amongst many others.


A shorter Newest Acquisitions section as Jez gets ready to set sail, but the team look at an array of items from the Death Star World Micro Collection and Die Cast Landspeeders through to the MTV-7 which the team cover in depth with added input from the Vintage Alliance. Andrew Norton and Clint Garniss also stop by to discuss their recent acquisitions.


And Pete brings us a Gimcrack Listener Special.


All this plus much more on this months Vintage Rebellion Podcast!


Enjoy the show!!!

Episode 52 lands a little later than usual but we're delighted to be able to confirm that even though overseas, Jez has managed to join us and record the entire show!!! So hopefully the show will be worth the wait.


Stuart and Richard are joined by Jason Langendorfer for this months interview, Jason discusses his collecting habits with the boys in depth including telling us about his recent visit to Redwood Forest whilst discussing his photography of the toys we all love, from the photos he snapped back in the 1980s through to the recent snaps he continues to take.


During Rebel Briefings, Richard delves into a current hot topic as we discuss when deals go sour, from the selling of suspect baggie mailers through to figures being sold for suspect scammers, the boys delve in and offer honest opinions on the recent debacle. The team also look at a host of other topics during Rebel Briefings which include the recent Vectis auction and Palitoy Landfill dream amongst many others.


He may be serving overseas but Jez still manages to bring his usual Newest Acquisitions section where he looks at items including Blue Snaggletooth through to Australian Pizza Hutt glasses, whilst also being joined by Andrew Carrick, Scott Bacon and Clint Garniss to discuss their recent purchases. The team take time to look at Hammerhead in more depth this month, with Ron Salvatore from the Vintage Rebellion Alliance stopping by to offer his expertise on the figure.


Following on from the Hammerhead discussion, Pete takes a look at the other oddball items associated with Hammerhead during 'Beyond the Newest Acquisitions'. The Frito Lay sticker from Puerto Rico is a truly stunning piece.


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


Enjoy the Show!!!

The Vintage Rebellion's 53rd episode lands with some disappointing news with regards to a member of the team. However, the other four crack on and smash out another show just in time before October ends.


David Phillips joins Stuart and Richard from New Zealand to discuss his work with WETA, his love of droids and a huge find in the wild amongst many other topics.


Rebel Briefings is packed to the hilt as Richard chats with Chris Fawcett about two fascinating topics, he is then joined by Robin Bocra to discuss the new Jordan Hembrough show where he visits and interviews Star Wars fans and collectors.


Newest Acquisitions is packed as always as the team look at an assortment of recent pick ups from Presto Magix Kits through to separation color sheets for Boba Fett MOC. The boys finish with a look at the Dagobah playset with help from The Vintage Rebellion Alliance.


Pete continues delving into Dagobah items as he takes a look at the oddball items associated with the swamp planet during Beyond the Newest Acquisitions.


As an added extra this month, Steve Savory serves up an Echo Live Special as he records with traders and guests from the recent show including Echo base founder Adam Pemberton.


All this plus an awful lot more on this months Vintage Rebellion.


Enjoy the Show!!!!!!

Vintage Rebellion return with a slightly different format than normal. This month there is no focus interview after Richard and Pete were able to attend the Palitoy presentation in Coalville with former employees of the toy company. In place of the interview we hear the presentation in its entirety instead.


Although no interview we show does have a familiar feel to it outside of that change with Richard discussing the unearthing of some old photos in the 99p Woolworths baggie scandal, as well as catching up with friend of the show, Stephane Faucourt to discuss his latest upcoming book.


Jez returns with his usual NA section where the team talk Posters, displays, Sigma, Cinema tickets and Koolee Cups before rounding the month off with a look at the Imperial Dignitary figure, do you love him or hate him? The boys have differing opinions and none more so than Vintage Alliance member, Ron Salvatore, as Ron gives us his take of the greatest last 17 figure.


Pete continues the Imperial Dignitary loving during 'Beyond the Newest Acquisitions', as he looks at the alternate collectibles for the would be Imperial Dignitary focus collectors before delivering his tracker top five.


As well as all this the boys discuss bleaching of figures, Jez lets himself down by having a meltdown during another quiz, and more general Star Wars chit chat.


Enjoy the Show!!!

The final episode of the year from the Vintage Rebellion lands with a shorter than usual show (although still longer than most others).


Stuart and Richard are joined by Brit Paul Davis A.K.A. Roundster, for this months main interview where they discuss a whole host of topics including several various focuses Paul has had on his collecting journey.


Richard looks at three stories from the hobby on Rebel Briefings, starting with Diecast and finishing with Vectis with a Battles issue sandwiched inbetween.


The NA is shorter this month but still takes a look at Comb and Keepers, Spanish Man bags, Gumball Machines and bargain loose figures before finishing off with the main topic, with the help of Vintage Alliance member Ron Salvatore, they look at The Ewok Battle Wagon.
Continuing on as always on 'Beyond the Newest Acquisitions' Pete looks at all things non toy related to The Ewok Wagon and other wagons belonging to the hairy bears.


We also take a fond look at the Christmas Farthest From event which was the prefect end to the Star Wars year and Stuart let's fly at two members of the community and a poor Facebook group.


All this plus many other treats on this months TVR.


Enjoy the show!!!

The first show of 2019 arrives with all four of the crew present, delivering a packed show.


Darren Mcaleese joins Stuart and Richard for the main interview this month, the larger than life character discusses a host of topics from events and the community to Trilogo Madines and modern with some wonderful tales in between.


During Rebel Briefings we look at a host of topics and items that the team have been tagged in over the last few months but sadly couldn't have fitted into earlier shows before we discuss the Bib Fortuna blog on SWCA and Toploading bubble protectors.


Newest Acquisitions is full of guests as Evan Hoyt Wasserstrom chats about his Huffy Speeder Bike, Andrew Norton drops by to tell us about his ROTJ T-Shirt he found at a toy fair and Steve Savory tells us how he has completed a MOC run in which the final piece he has been looking for for 3 years! Alongside this we look at a 12 back with 32 back sticker, a graded Luke X-Wing Pilot MOC, Canadian Colour and Shapes on Cassette, whilst looking at Carl Dennis's top work on Yavin. As well as all this the team finish with a look at the Rancor monster, Richard proves what a mad man he is as he states it's the worst of all the creatures and the Vintage Alliance drop by to blow us away with more information on the caged beast than we could have hoped for.


Pete continues the Rancor loving by going further into other lines, in particular a Vintage Bootleg Soft Vinyl Model Kit is the pick of the bunch.


On top of all this we have the usual quizzes, a Celebration update, as well as discussing bubbles that get damaged in transit and where the liability lies.


All this plus much more on The Vintage Rebellion.


Enjoy the show!!!

Episode 57 sees Star Wars Tracker developer Jared Cope join Stuart & Pete to discuss his collecting, coins, Australia and of course Tracker.


Rebel Briefings this month sees the team delve into the jaw dropping Prop Store Toy Auction as they look at some of the items that are available as well as being in awe of the information that is included in the auction catalogue. Richard leads the team through some other topics too as they look at R5-D4 Pre-Production, the Podcast stage at Celebration and Chicago and offer their thoughts on the new 'Retro Line' from Hasbro.


During Newest Acquisitions the team are joined by Mark Daniels to discuss his latest pick up, a Mint in Box Laser Rifle with red insert and also speak of the purple insert version. As well as this they look at the Pendulum Press Kit again and appreciate the work that Jason Langendorfer is doing to present the audio of this item, they look at Ron Cobb Color Vision book where Pete's loving for the man gets uncomfortable and we look at an amazing Lili Ledy haul picked up by Oscar Galaz, Jez shout outs many other awesome and inspiring purchases before the team settle down for the main topic of the month, the A-Wing, where Ron Salvatore from the Vintage Rebellion Alliance drops by to help the team out with the facts.


Pete continues the A-Wing loving during 'Beyond the Newest Acquisitions' where we look at what the A-Wing appeared on, Comic covers, MPC Kits, VHS tapes, he's got it covered before bringing us the Tracker top five of A-Wing items.


As well as all this we have the usual delights, we have a Celebration update, the usual quizzes and we hear just what the team had as children and what happened to those toys that inspired their collections today.


Enjoy the show!!!

With Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on the horizon the TVR team mash up a normal feeling show with Celebration.


In place of an interview this month we have a Celebration Roundtable where Chris Fawcett, Ron Salvatore and Chris Georgoulias join Stuart and Richard to talk Chicago, Collecting Track, Star Tots and previous Celebrations amongst many other topics, Ron also relays a wonderful story of a rocket firing Fett, David Mandel and a random passing Stormtrooper!!!


Richard looks at this years Collecting track in Rebel Briefings but is also joined by Matt George, Gary Borbridge and Stephen Ward for a fascinating look at their new book 'Engineering an Empire', and trust me, after hearing these three discuss it you'll be ordering it there and then!


Jez returns to England to host a mammoth Newest Acquisitions segment where he looks at a host of great purchases from knock off Jabba pipes and ESB Paperweights through to Greek Han Solo blasters with so much awesome stuff in between. The team end the section as always with a focus item, this month something the whole crew adore as they delve into the Taun Taun and Ron from the Vintage Alliance drops by for a second time in the show to give it that extra information.


Pete continues the love for the Taun Taun in Beyond the Newest Acquisitions, he looks at Lee Wards, Craftmaster and Sigma amongst other items before delivering his popular tracker top five on the hottest Taun Taun items.


As well as all this we look at other stories in the hobby, quiz hosted by Jez so obviously that's an extended section! Plus a better look at Celebration where Jez gets Uppity about a title for episode 9 leak.


All this plus much much more!!!


Enjoy the Show!!!

With Celebration now a distant memory the boys return to the usual format for Episode 60. The team start with a reflection on Peter Mayhew who we've sadly lost since the last show.


Anthony Spinnickie joins Stuart and Richard to discuss his Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker focuses and how he got involved with Chive Cast and their social media amongst many other topics.


In this months Newest Acquisitions the lads look at a whole array of items, including a ray gun! Rich explains about a fantastic gift give to Adam Pemberton at Echo Live and there is understandably a look at some Chewbacca items that have been purchased including the height of Star Wars fashion items: The Chewbacca Bandolier Strap.


Pete keeps the Chewbacca love going during 'Beyond the Newest Acquisitions' as we find some amazing oddball items of the beloved Wookiee.
Rebel Briefings sees Richard look at the world of Protomolds and the fantastic article produced by Ben Sheehan as well as revisiting last months Vectis Auction.


As well as all this we talk Hakes and Echo Live as well as the usual quiz and much much more.

Episode 61 celebrates The Vintage Rebellion's 5 Year Anniversary. Joining the team to take you through this milestone episode are two special guest hosts which listeners should be familiar with!


Instead of a main focus interview this month, Stuart takes us through an array of stories from a selection of the interviews he has undertaken over the last 60 episodes, we hear from Matthew Fox, Ron Salvatore, Mattias Rendahl and Lee Bullock amongst many others and their memorable tales.


Rebel Briefings sees Richard joined by Brian Angel for a corker of a story, whilst the boys also look at what is going on in the hobby with the amount of new groups springing up and the negativity between some of those groups, what does the future of the hobby hold with the current climate.


Jez brings us his Newest Acquisitions, looking at a multitude of items from Creature Cantina Playsets through to Australian Roller boots and finishing as always with a focal topic, this month it's the B-Wing, Stephen Danley drops by to offer his knowledge on the ship.


Pete continues looking at the B-Wing in 'Beyond The Newest Acquisitions', as the boys realise how little the B-Wing appeared on across the oddball items.


All this plus much more as the boys look at how it all sorted and can Jez not finish bottom of a quiz when there's an extra two people to take that mantle from him... Surely... Maybe...


Enjoy the Show!!!

Feeling Hoth Hoth Hoth
Woohoo!!! I'll be listening on the commute home from work today.

There has certainly been some heated debates lately among several groups in the hobby which has led to many falling outs with some well known collectors. Unfortunately, that's the problem we find ourselves in with social media these days. In many of the groups that are several thousand strong you find a unique blend of thousands of different personalities and opinions. Large groups can be ticking time bombs if people take what others say the wrong way or don't learn to let things go like water on a duck's back.

The B-Wing conversation should be delightful. It is oddly held somewhere in the realms between a disregarded ship and an icon for SW collectors, which makes it one of the best vehicles to have a lengthy discussion on. Thanks for the work you all put into the show. It's always a great way to decompress after a lengthy work day.

Nice view!






Episode 62 features an interview with not one but two collectors and traders. joining Stuart and Richard is Richard Temple and Ben Potter, owners of Toys of Tatooine. The lads discuss trading, collecting, oddball items as well as delving into numerous finds including a 380 Logray MOC find.


Rebel Briefings sees Rich tackle all the important issues from around the hobby over the last four weeks. He takes us through a look at Modern pre-Production Items, Shill bidding accounts which were recently exposed, asks the question whether grading companies are favourable to repeat customers and we say a sad farewell to one of the podcast team.


Jez blows us away with the by far the longest Newest Acquisitions ever, a hole host of items are discussed, from helix Pencil Sharpeners to an array of MOCs. he then delves into an in depth look at cardbacks and finally rounds off the section with a look at the X-Wing where the Rebel Alliance drop by to help out.


Pete continues the X-Wing loving in Beyond the Newest Acquisitions, so many non toy items feature the x-wing, what will the big man pick out to discuss?


As well as all this we have the usual quizzes, hear about the disappointment of no summer Farthest From and take a look at a diorama that has been built using an old playset base. All this plus much much more on this months Vintage Rebellion.


Enjoy the show!!!

The Vintage Rebellion rumbles on post Jexit, as Stuart, Richard and Pete are joined by two of the five rotating guest hosts, this month we welcome Edd Grant and Jason Smith on board to help us with the void that Jez leaves.


Pete takes control of the interview this month as he completes his trilogy of Toy Shop interviews, this time it is Chris Malbon for Metropolis that joins him for a chat.


Richard is joined by David Quinn, Dan Loisell and Brent Scotchmer to discuss this years ICCC event and what will be different from last years. Rich also looks at a fantastic fund raising raffle over on Tantive as well as an early look at 'The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker Project'. With help from attendee Jason, Rich also reviews the recent LFCC event.


Pete introduces his new section, 'License to Thrill', where he looks at one vintage license each month. This month sees UK show company, Clarks, delved into, but why no shoes from Clarks in the UK during the line? Baffling!!!


Newest Acquisitions returns without it's natural leader, but the lads take on a shorter section looking at Kenner Lightsabers, John Menzies, Dairylea, beater MOCs and Handmade figures before finishing with their main topic, this month it's the Kenner Death Star, and as always we have The Vintage Alliance drop by to help us out once again, this time we hear from Ron Salvatore.


As well as all this we hear the TVR shenanigans on a recent Star Wars weekender and as usual the quiz. thanks to grant sharing the back seat of a car with Stuart we also see the return of the song!!!

Rich is helped out this month on Rebel Briefings as Jason Smith talks Kellerman Matrix v. 2 with Stephane Faucourt and we all give our opinions on the recent Echo Live event.


License to thrill continues looking at a license that Rich is particularly fond of - Kelloggs. Jonathan McElwain brings his knowledge to the section to bring order to our cornflake chaos.

November 2019s Vintage Rebellion podcast welcomes Jason Smith to the regular hosts. Mark Daniels had to drop out through a sniffle but we managed to Press-Gang Craig Spivey for Jason's 'Adventure Game' style quiz.

Craig's main reason for joining us is to talk about this month's Licensee focus of Letraset. It's not just a focus, its a fundamental blast through a much loved range of products. The notes supplied for this may well be the most comprehensive ever seen. You do not want to miss it, nether do you want to do anything other than gather a few brews for the main interview where Richard interviews Australia's Blake Edgerton, a journey through collecting in Australia and setting up as an independent dealer.

Amongst all the usual fun podcast shenanigans we look forward to Dave Tree's Farthest From in Fordingbridge during the weekend of November 30th (beer) and December 1st (Vintage Toy Show). The podcast will be presenting an exclusive poster and flogging issue 4 of our fanzine 'It Came From The Loft'. Andy Preston has donated his Dairylea badge as a free cover prize (subject to availability).

This month its 4 hours and 45 minutes of vintage sausage that you simply cannot get anywhere else.

Great podcast as always. Interesting IV with Blake. That story about Yak Face :O

I started collecting in the late 90s and the only place to buy vintage in Sydney was the Parramatta Toy Show ( now legendary amongst aussie collectors ) Anyone who went regularly will remember a seller who used to drive up from Melbourne ( about a 9hr drive ) and had a stall right next to the entrance. He had all the best stuff although VERY expensive. He was asking an insanely high $400AUD ( about $250USD ) for moc Yak Faces and Anakins but would sweeten the deal by throwing in a handful of POTF coins. Pre internet I'm not sure if the Aussie collecting community were aware of the rarity of the Big 5 at this time.

I don't know how to post pictures.. but I have an advert from a 1985 Toyworld catalog advertising Potf for 99 cents. In the advert are a dozen Potf moc including Yak, Anakin and the others from the Big 5....its like a map to the holy grail :D

Cool story @Trenchrun I know a lot of stuff has come out of the woodwork since that interview with Blake.
Thanks @cichlidjedi I know chris is keen, it'll be a matter of pinning Gus down from his travels I guess. Will work on it,



It's Christmas, it's the end of the decade, it's the end of the Skywalker saga. If you want to hear us talk about any of that, then buy us a pint and ask us on a date. Instead, episode 67 sees Rich and Pete joined by Edd Grant and Mark Daniels to talk Vintage Star Wars collecting and pretty much nothing else.

Main interview is Graham Marshall (23rd member from this here forum) who we found on eBay selling off Episode 1 Amidala Cereal boxes to Peter then enticed him into his house for food on the promise of showing him his Empire MOCs.

Richard briefs his rebels through a review of Dave Tree's Farthest From and then we review 2019 before heading into the new decade. This month's licensee talk is all about RSO and the many different items available for collecting.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the last episode of the decade!

"We don't need another hero, we don't need to know the way home, All we want is to hear a podcast about vintage Star Wars collecting with an interview with Justin Haynie and Jenn Thunders(dome)" Catchy rendition of that famous theme tune, no? Richard catches up with these two awesome collectors whilst we are joined by the Andy's, Preston and Spoons (Norton in real life) for hosting duties.

In Rebel Briefings Richard highlights a mysterious tale of a price sticker, we share Gary Smith's completion of an incredible collection and a discussion breaks out on how best to display a much loved action figure.

Memories of ice lollies in Licence to Thrill as Pete delves into Andy Preston's sticky wrapper enthusiasm of Lyons Maid and sees if there's anything still worth tasting.

Three and a half hours of stuff...

and boom.....

Funnily enough the episode number of this podcast produced zero crude jokes and innuendo's, which is surprising. Almost as much as Jason Smith returning with fellow supporting guest co-host Andrew Mr Spoons Norton.

The main interview sees Richard catch up with David Deans to discuss many things including his love of that short fused droid R5-D4.

A brazen phalanx of midland and northern flavoured hosts results in a focus on that great staple of British picnics: the Thermos - in Pete's Licensee section.

Richard warbles merrily in Rebel Briefings about Jasons cardback matrix, the forthcoming Propstore auction and poses the question from the Tantive forum about "Collecting without Buying".

The apocalypse is finally here. It's what we've been training for since Dawn of the Dead in the 1970s. What's your weapon of choice? OR you can stay in your house, kick off your cuban heels, grab a relaxing beverage in your favourite mug and listen to a few hours of vintage Star Wars collecting talk.

We have handy-Andy Preston and jaunty-Jason Smith joining Richard and Peter in the hosting duties. We hear some cracking interviews from Andy's trip to Finse, Norway on his Empire Strikes Back / Hoth adventure - listen to him being gnawed on by a local Wampa.

Also during Rebel Briefings Rich and the team discuss the awesome article on Argentinian fakes found on the SWCA blog and consider the future role of auction houses

Our main interview sees Pete catch up with Javier Florencio Swars and Fernando Ruiz Ceano who put together, in a couple of months, the amazing Galaxias Vintage con in Tarragona Spain. Hear their story of how it came about and how it went.

On this months licensee section Pete gets the guys to remember their Panini sticker collecting days, although Jason reckons the best Panini is ham and cheese, Richard fights him to the death on tripe and rhubarb. Andy and Pete watch on in horror.

Also this month we have a treat for you.. thanks to Chris Porteous, our social media Jedi, whom has put our dance to music for you! (This translates to putting visuals to our warbling on youtube). Its awesome. Put it on your big telly whilst exercising in lockdown.

Goodness gracious, has it been a month already since the last episode? Nope. Quarantine has meant we got on with this episode. Or maybe its living in fear of our hosts: The Andy's - Preston and Spoons'. An accidental delve into their past reveals some dark secrets. You would not believe it. Really!

We see what the community has been up to in these dark times and especially those who can turn their skillsets to something to help for the greater good.

Richard flies (secretly) to meet New Zealand artist Mark Catley for this months interview to talk about collecting Bossk, vintage Star Wars and street art. Which is awesome. Check out his work, after listening to this podcast of course.

In Pete's licensee section we talk about tins from the Metal Box Ltd and find out what the lads kept in theirs back-in-the-day.

Hot off the heels from Episode 71, comes Episode 72! Amazing isn't it.

Andy Norton decides to have a go at a quiz this month to test the chops of recent 'Farthest From - Online' champions Richard Hutchinson and Andy Preston. It's an attempt at ITV's The Chase. With Mr. Preston being the Chaser. Can Jason, Peter & Richard beat him down?

The main interview is with Irish writer Michael Carroll, who runs the online blog 'Rusty Staples', which we touched upon in our Panini Licensee section a few months back. Rusty Staples covers every single mention and influence of Star Wars in British Comic 2000AD. Michael is a current writer of Judge Dredd and with Peter, reminisces about Star Wars, collecting and all things of an Irish influence back in the day.

We ask the question about certain scenes in the Original Trilogy which there are few, if any, collectables. Richard leaps onto Farthest From online, and certain Facebook groups in Rebel briefings whilst looking at the latest Vectis Auction. Can Richard win another R5 for his collection? Will Andy Norton just buy all the Action Man gear?

The Licensee section sees Peter tackling Cliro, where he gets all soapy with the lads. What can we make Jason buy this month? Thanks to Craig Stevens for supplying some amazing insight into this glorious brand.

In amongst fighting off mice and general wildlife - trying to eat the collectibles stored in his garage - young Star Wars fan Stuart Skinner, from nearby France, takes part in this months interview. Talking SIGMA, being mistaken for Romba the Ewok and all those days of being on this here podcast for decades.

Jason Smith has a new microphone, but can he stay awake long enough in his office/sauna to finish his list of acquisitions whilst Andy Preston returns as we discuss Empire Strikes Back having a birthday. Sadly we are all old enough to remember it coming out in 1980, although Cinema had yet to reach Richard in the frozen north.

During Rebel Briefings an argument breaks out over some oddities featured in a Palitoy display at a recent Auction. Richard pays tribute to Charles Lippencott.

Licensee Butterly Originals gently stirs the memories of our hosts as we remember the days of school hijinks with stationery items being used for violence.

Chris Porteous' hard work making us look beautiful can also be found on that moving pictures website.
