Here's a little snippet of an interview with Gord Warren from Irwin Toy. He was the production manager at Irwin from 1976-2001 and as such he was in charge of manufacturing the Star Wars line in Canada. I helped shoot this for the Ontario Star Wars Collectors Alliance.

You can hear the rest of the interview on episode 95 of the Star Wars Collectors Archive Podcast, linked below.

Thanks for sharing the video. That was awesome. I've already listened to the Chive Cast episode, late yesterday afternoon. Well done.

I think it went well. I wish I'd noticed at the time but at one point before Gord's interview plays, it kinda sounds like Toby is trying to say that vac sealed cards didn't come in sears multi-packs, which of course they did. rofl I'm sure I did a few of those despite my greatest efforts to avoid affirmative statements.

I look forward to a stern roasting and error report from Mr. Bradley. lol!
