It was a fun listen as usual, Steve. popcorn I should have a chance to put up an extensive review this week.

Haha! If it were really 45 minutes, I'm not sure any of us that recorded would still be alive right now. It was really only a brief mention of the Trademark for the character from the SWCA: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Definitively Beardly Madine" - ‘Chive Cast – Episode 93 Review

"Definitively Beardly Madine" - ‘Chive Cast – Episode 93 Review

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

Most of you guys that comment in here will have already heard this episode, but when one looks at the thread views all across the forum, we've got a lot of lurkers who read and don't post, and if any of you guys haven't been listening to the 'Chive Cast, there is no better time than the present. (Also make an account so you can see the great photos and supplemental links which are included in posts like this.  What a Face )

Skye & Steve tackle General Madine in episode 93, and you'll learn more than you ever thought there was to know about the Imperial defector with the green beard. I didn't know much about the figure, but I thought I was pretty well versed in the behind the scenes details of this character, man was I wrong. General Madine has ties to early versions of the script with alternate storylines, and alternate versions of scenes we all know.

The Imperial Dignitary himself, (sometimes known as God within the holy trinity of the SWCA) Gus Lopez, makes his return to the 'Chive Cast to talk about some early candy related items tied to the original film. I was somewhat aware of these, especially the candy wrappers, but I didn't realize there was such a range in the rarity of the wrappers between chocolate bar brands. If you are even remotely interested in food premiums, this segment is absolutely worth checking out.

A spotty connection with Gus causes the guys to veer into one of the most entertaining market watch segments in recent memory. Skye goes up against Brock Walker in a tense competition thats close right 'till the end. In my humble opinion, a more hilarious and competitive format for the market watch, (in which Skye will either win or lose some some nonsensical made up title which he values a lot  rofl ) is the way to go. It's funny every time. Some items in the market watch shed light on the value of certain prototype pieces over time, this type of information is always interesting to me.

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

Brock, Steve, & Skye also walk through some of the many interesting pre-production items that have been discovered. I found the alternate head sculpt to be particularly interesting. That is something you don't see for too many other figures. Brock offers quite a bit of insight to this segment as he either owned or owns some of the pieces discussed. The wide range of items that have been discovered for this figure give you a particularly detailed look at the production process of a figure in the ROTJ era from initial design to execution.

Steve takes us behind the scenes in a new segment (which as an opening jingle which must be heard to be believed) and he covers the strange way in which Kenner may have had something to do with Madines notorious beard, and the guys also talk about the alternate scenes in which General Madine leads the attack on the Second Death Star. (You can see some of this footage at the 8:30 mark of the video below.)


While looking around for supplemental material for this review, I stumbled upon this short interview with Dermot Crowley where he speaks about some cut scenes which he shot under the direction of George Lucas. Interestingly, this must not be the alternate Akbar lines because (as was so hilariously highlighted in 'Chive Cast 93, those were directed by Richard Marquand, who you can hear calling out notes ("Flash! Stagger! Don't stagger until I tell you!") during the filming.


All in all, this was a fun return to form for the 'Chive cast, returning to the figure of the month format, and I enjoyed it immensely. Beyond the discussion of the figure and it's many prototypes, this episode is really interesting if you are fascinated by behind the scenes details of film production. Madine is a lens through which you can look at an alternate version of Jedi that never was, and an alternate version of the same movie that would have been less interesting, and less fishy. rofl popcorn Great job as always, Steve. We really appreciate you stoping by here to share the new episodes directly.

If any of you guys haven't listened to it yet, do yourselves a favour and check it out on YouTube, below.

The Bib episode just dropped! I’m about half way through. It’s obvious that this one was going to be good. popcorn

Still haven’t mentioned Xizor, we might have a travesty on our hands. (Just kidding, Steve.) rofl

HA! I will admit, I had not thought about the name Xizor for a long time, long time. But you are absolutely right -- after a bit of digging and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]:

"Xizor's most famous contemplative and plotting stance was inspired from an old concept illustration of Bib Fortuna, by Nilo Rodis-Jamero."

Thanks for the continued great show reviews, Chris!

I had looked at those pencil toppers, Clint. Really fun item. And wow, who knew that the Canadian Bib was so tough to come by.

Here's the direct link to the Bib Fortuna episode on the SWCA Blog with images and show notes: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And this seems just as good a place as any to announce, but tickets for the Archive Party at Celebration Chicago will be going on sale Saturday January 19th at 11:38am PST. We'll be recording a Blog Log Pod that will also go over all the details very soon, so I'll be sure to send a heads up here when that happens.

Hope to see some of you there!

Thanks for the update Steve.

It was also interesting to hear about all the odd patent references that had to be made on the Kenner Bib Fortuna figure. Good for Phidias Barrios tracking down an example of all the odd patent references. clapping

Hi all,

We've just released the latest Blog Log Pod (Episode 10), in with which Ron Salvatore discusses an amazing piece of unused Endor ROTJ Kenner artwork that he recently highlighted on the SWCA Blog. Plus, this is the FIRST and ONLY place (for now) to learn about the underground rave...err, Archive Party IV ticket and exclusives info: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks for the update Steve.  I just finished listening to the episode.  And yes, I must be a masochist. lol!

I remember reading the blog article when it came out.  But it was great to hear Ron describe how it came into his possession.

The Archive party sounds like it will be good time again. clapping

Will Skye be bringing back Jasper?

Loved the blog log pod! Interesting how Luke’s gun just perfectly frames Chewie’s head. That’s gotta be the strangest choice in the piece imo, but it certainly is beautiful! Also, hearing that it’s been on the archive for years just reminds me that I haven’t explored the archive enough.
