Just got my beautiful Fanzine, and I've been following your repro box discussion on Facebook with great interest. rofl

Also, in reference to when I was mentioned in feedback in episode 45, Pete did not, in fact, mention the Vectrex version of Star Fire in the fanzine reviews, only the legitimate arcade and home releases. Totally different. Formal complaint filed rofl and immediately rescinded, because my free fanzine is so delightful. bowwing

Surely I can buy something at a second-hand store for $5 that will play this mixtape, right? clapping popcorn

Episode 46 : SupercalifragilisticexpialiGeorgoulias

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


March brings us the longest Vintage Rebellion podcast to date, with Jez still absent without leave the rest of the team can't stop talking.

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.

Mike Havens joins Rich during Rebel Briefings to discuss his convention ICCC. Rich also looks at the best collecting books available and delves into an eBay auction.

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?

As well as all this the boys discuss collecting ethics after being accused of snobbery on their opinion on reproduction items last month, whilst they also have their usual quiz and general discussion.

All this plus much more including a Running Stormtrooper update.

Enjoy the show!!!

Thanks for the update Richard.

I have to apologize for not getting my review of the last podcast finished. I've been suffering from the flu, for the last 1 1/2 weeks.

Ouch - my daughter has just come down bad. My son who had meningitis 2 years back catches every buy very badly and he and I are off to Florida in a few days so I'm praying he doesn't catch anything. Hope you're well soon.

Episode 45 review

The Running Stormtrooper is at it again, for one final big run.  On May 17th, Jez is going to run 100 Km for “Make A Wish” & “Spread a Smile”.

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

For those that haven’t seen it yet.  The Mods here at TXI are going to be auctioning off some vintage goodies over on Jabba’s Court FB group.  With all the proceeds going directly to The Running Stormtrooper.  Pictures of the items can be seen here.

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

The auctions will be run by our very own Alex (General Kahn),  auction dates and times, to be anounced.

I loved the Lili Ledy based quiz.  Especially guessing which figures appeared on the LL 30 card back.

Where “Power of the Force” MOC’s available in the UK?  The boys discussed the possibility that they were available through independent shops.

Congrats to Brain Angel on acquiring another “Red Bar” R5-D4 MOC.  That gives him a SW, ESB & ROTJ.  A Tri-logo MOC has not been seen yet.
I would love to see a group shot of all the Red Bar R5-D4’s.

The boys then discuss the questionable ethics of ending Ebay auctions early by contacting the seller and offering more money.

The cost of reproduction items has gotten out of control.  The cost of a reproduction Millennium Falcon complete with a bleached (peroxide) ship, reproduction inserts, reproduction stickers, reproduction training ball & arm, and reproduction instructions, has now become more expensive than the original item.  This is clearly part of the “I want it all, I want it now”.  Because they don’t have the patience to wait for the real item.

Ebay & PayPal are parting ways.  Ebay is going to partner with the Dutch company Adyen.  Hopefully this will result in lower fees and more payment options for buyers.  But this won’t start until 2021.

I really enjoyed Richard’s “Visit Hoth” exploits about his recent trip to Finse, Norway and the Empire Strikes Back film locations.  One more place to put on my wish to visit list.

Newest Acquisitions

Congrats to Andy Norton (spoons) over on SWFUK and his pre-production Diecast Tie-Fighter wing.

The “Grubee’s” cups from Dallas Ewen’s collection was fantastic.  Got to love the local oddities from Winnipeg Manitoba.

The Hoth Ice Planet Adventure Set is discussed, with the differences between the US & Canadian Boxes.

New Odd Ball Section

Pete is starting a new odd ball section.  The boys discuss a home made Hoth play set that first appeared back in the 1980’s “Women’s Day” magazine.

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

They then move on to discuss “Letra Sets”, Paint by Numbers by Fundmations, & Probot & Turret Play Set.

This month’s Gimcracker submissions where awesome.

But the one that stands out is the R2 Model from Japan with the swastika decals.

Let’s keep the fun going.  Feel free to post your submissions here.

And finally Simon has taken over and revamped the Market Watch section.  Well done Simon, you did a fantastic job. clapping

We will miss Jez on the podcast for another month.  Good luck with the studies & training.

Thanks again guys for another great show.  Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the putting that together, Clint. I think there are 500% more locations on the internet where you can see a photo and some text about the “Grubee’s cups since that episode was released. rofl
