That's awesome news. Hopefully he still can reach his pledge goal before the big race. cheers

Episode 34

I'm looking forward to seeing what Rian Johnson can do with episode 8.  Gareth James set the bar pretty high with Rogue One.

Lets all hope that the Running Stormtrooper (aka Jez) gets someone to donate a treadmill to use in Orlando.  This is a fantastic charity event that he is trying to accomplish. bowwing

Did anyone else hear Pete mention that he collects My Little Ponies (MLP) & Barbies?  That's alright Pete, as long as you are only collecting them. What a Face

That was a good interview with Johnpaul Ragusa & his kickstarter campaign for foam shipping materials for Mint on Card figures.  I think there are too many bubble variations to figure out.  Maybe just make 1 or 2 bubble sizes and then have some extra pieces to customize the final fit, might work.

I've never dealt or plan to deal with ToyTony, but the fact that he is still selling vintage items, is a bit worry some.  You would think his name is "mud" at this point.

The interview with Ian Sanderson was great.  I'm heading to C8, and will be looking forward to finding his booth & meeting him in person.  I'm looking for some more figure stands, so hopefully he will have some there.

As for AFA keeping the fees for not grading a figure, because they have never graded a figure, is shameful.  I'm not a fan of AFA, other than for rare figures.

The interview with Brian Angel was great.  He seems to have so many stories about collecting vintage SW, and the story about his childhood R5-D4 was fascinating.

For those that didn't see the weird Japanese Tuna Fish commercial that Jez was talking about, here it is, I hope.



Also the podcast guys were asking about being able to add to the "There's Something Odd about Oola" section.  Of course everyone can add and participate in the different sections.  They are discussion threads, just like the rest of the forum.  The hope is that we will be adding the pictures and info to the main Library section, for archive purposes.  If anyone wants to supply pictures, they will be given full credit.  So if you have any "Odd items", "Beyond the Toys", or "Gimcrack", please post them.

The debate over every ones favourite Tie Fighter ship colour rages on.  White, Blue, Gray, Glassite Silver, you choose.

I really enjoyed the interview with Chris Moore, and the story behind the The Empire Strikes Back wallpaper.  I don't remember seeing this as a kid, or I would have wanted it for my room.

They couldn't produce enough content for my level of weekly commute lol but they come close with those 4-5h episodes.

Between this and the SWCA podcast, I've got plenty to listen to. That being said, the VR is clearly more punctual with their releases lol shots fired

Skye does often joke about their delays though lol and one does have to remember that it's all for the love of the game

Episode 35

Jez starts off the episode with an update on the treadmill for C8 in Orlando.  Apparently  through some contacts, the Orlando Police Dept. is able to get a treadmill to the Convention Centre.  This is wonderful news from the Running Stormtrooper. clapping

As the crew discusses any new vintage purchases, Richard says that he was able to get one of the sets of Topps SW series trading cards.  Richard, if you haven’t seen our thread yet.  We have both Topps & O-Pee-Chee (OPC) trading cards shown.  For those that don’t know, O-Pee-Chee is the Canadian trading card company.  When I brought my childhood toys & trading cards out of storage, the trading card sets were the first to be completed.  The hardest to find, where the OPC SW series 1 & 2 empty display boxes.  I think that I waited almost 10 years before any showed up.  I’m planning to update the pictures in the thread soon.

The boys then discuss some Aurora (France) - Mustard Glasses, and what kind of mustard came in them.  They are definitely unique looking glasses.

[400][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/400]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The boys then break into a game about Cardbacks & Box Art.  This was fantastic and had me yelling at my computer, shouting out the answers to any that I knew.

Thanks for the update on “baggiegate”.  Jeff is still proclaiming innocents.

There was some pre-Celebration talk.  With Jez hoping that someone from Make a Wish will be stopping by his booth, and have a chat.  We also hear that he fell during training and has a sore arm & leg.  “Man down, Man down”

We hear a great interview with Mark Baker & Karl Dix from Jabba’s Palace Facebook group.

The discussion then turns to the Imperial Troop Transporter vs. the Imperial Cruiser.  I’m not possitive, but I think all we got here in Canada is the Imperial Troop Transporter.
The only difference between the 2, is the Imperial Cruiser didn’t have any electronics.  So it was cheaper to make & sell.

Imperial Cruiser

Jez then gets nostalgic over a lamp shade that he had as a kid.  That is one interesting looking lampshade.

Then the mind boggling discussion over the designations of the Palitoy 48 backs.  I think you guys should just stop worrying about it, and send them all to me. lol!   Then I’ll figure them out for you.

The “Beyond the Toys” Facebook page & the following discussion was all about an Star Wars Atari arcade machine top piece.    Then they play an interview with the software designer.

Damn POTJ packaging.  Why couldn’t we have gotten more of it here in Canada.  The Gamorrean Guard MOC is a beautiful piece.  Well done.

Thanks again for another great episode, and I’m looking forward to meeting some of you in Orlando.

Not too enthusiastic at the moment as in the last few hours (after being told last week I'd be op free for 5 years) that I have probably chronic ligament injury on the inside of my left ankle needing major rework Gutted is the understatement.

Hey Rich, can't say I know much about CLIs but the more you know and the more promptly you act seems to be universally beneficial.

Also, I know we tend to avoid talking about political issues or the news at large here, but I just wanted to mention that my thoughts (along with those of everyone else here, I'm sure) are with the people of the UK after the despicable act that took place on the 22nd.

Keep up the fine work, thanks for the shout out on the podcast.

Thanks Chris,

we had around 20 or so pupils from my school at the concert - all have been accounted for thankfully but many are upset. There are two deaths of people who live very near me which my friends tell me I know their family, but I honestly don't recognise their photos.

Episode 36 review.

That was a great episode.  It seemed so long after the last one.  lol!

Sorry to hear that Pete has left the show.
Pete, I wish you all the best, and thanks for all your hard work on the podcast.  You will be missed.

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

It was fantastic to meet Rich, Grant, Jez & Pete in Orlando. I didn't get a chance to talk very much with Pete, while there.  I don’t remember seeing Pete after the Thursday night Archive Party.
Because Christian & I were just wandering around, taking in the shows, panels, & exhibits,  I think Rich, Grant & Jez saw more of us than they probably wanted.   lol!   I remember the one day, having a bite to eat in the food court, and seeing Rich & Grant pulling up to a table.  I wandered over and just started chatting with them.  That’s the main reason I was there.  Too meet and chat with all the collectors that I knew, and some I didn’t.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />'[/300]

Congrats to everyone for all their acquisitions at Celebration.  Grant showed me the Jedi call sheet while in Orlando, which was really cool & a nice piece to have.
I was at the Running Stormtrooper's table when Jez came back from getting cleaned up, and uncovered the 12” Stormtrooper gift.  Jez, you deserved it for all the selfless hard work you put in all that weekend.
Richard, congrats on the diecast Y-wing with the bomb. Awesome score.

I predict, that we haven’t seen the last of the Running Stormtrooper.  As much as he wants to retire.

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

I had the Slave1 as a kid, and I still proudly have it & the instruction sheet, in great condition. It was the only ship/vehicle that I had, besides a speeder bike & Tauntaun.
In my childhood scrapbook, I found a cut out from what I'm assuming is the 1983 or 1984 Canadian Sears Christmas Wishbook. The Slave1 is listed at $14.49 & the Snowspeeder is listed at $13.99.

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

I personally don’t think I’ll ever participate in restoring any Star Wars collectables.  I enjoy having the original toys, boxes & collectables, with all the glorious scribbles, check marks, folds & creases of all the childhood pieces that I have in my collection.  They give them a sense of history.

I hope everyone had a great official 40th anniversary Star Wars day.  May 25, 1977 - 2017

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

The interview with Steve Savoury was fantastic.  I’ve seen pictures of his great collection and the fantastic way he has displayed it.  I’ve also resently had the pleasure of dealing with Steve.

I did see the live interview Jason Smith did with the BBC.  Well done Jason.  You did a fantastic job of explaining things in a short period of time.

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />
[/300]
The interview with Chris Fawcett about the Arcade Machines was fantastic.  I’ve had to move a couple of vintage machines lately, so I know first hand how heavy they are.  I would love to have a vintage Star Wars machine someday, but I would need a bigger house.   lol!

Glad you enjoyed it Clint and thank you for the kind words.  My first time being on a Podcast and it was quite nerve-wracking before hand, but I think I pulled it off.  I'd highly recommend the experience to any collector they ask to go on and join them.  I really thought I had nothing to say or share as despite my love of the hobby and collecting in general, I'm a learner rather than a master of knowledge, but we still filled an hour...

Here's a pic of the top half of one of my Han Solo focus cabinets

Steve, that's fantastic. I love seeing pictures of your collection.cheers Being on the podcast is very nerve-wracking. I found that having a few shots of liquid courage, works well. lol!

It must be exiting to have a prop from any of the movies in any collection. Very nice. clapping
