Well hello there [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] .
Firstly, i must apologise for my tardy contribution to this forum. I haven't brought anything to the party therefore i already feel bad about writing this before i've even clicked send!!  Rolling Eyes

Some of you will know that I've been a presenter on a few podcasts in the past: SWFUK, TVR and over the last 2 years 'Generation Skywalker'.
Well, i've been handed the keys to the Vintage Collecting podcast series of Generation Skywalker (seriously, they cover everything: films, TV shows, modern collecting, SW Beers, SW Coffee, everything).  yay

I'm taking the Vintage Collecting podcast back to basics and will be focusing mainly on the figures/characters, principally 4 characters per show. Take the original 96 figures and this project will take 2 years with a monthly show.
Each month i'll have 1 x early figure, 1 x late figure and 2 from the middle.  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

For this first episode we'll be covering: Obi Wan Kenobi, Dengar, Klaatu and Anakin. At the end of that episode we'll be announcing what the next figures will be.

Where do Tantive XI come into this? Well i'd love your support. You guys are a font of knowledge and i'd love to have a Tantive XI public service announcement or whatever you'd like to call it.
I welcome any contribution from information to voice messages to Skype interviews. I've just had a great interview with Matt George regarding Obi Wan. You have a huge corporate knowledge and our listeners would prefer to listen to you rather than us. I welcome all contributions.

Not just carded figures but, cups, clothes, consumables, puzzles you name it!!

So would you be up for being my single forum source of info? Would any of you be willing to join in?
Advertising the first set of figures:
Kenobi (Matt has covered this well from a figure point of view but we didn't cover 'Beyond the Toys',
Dengar - does anyone focus on this chap? Marco?
Klaatu - I have something in the pipeline (Paul James) but welcome extra content
Anakin - No known focus collectors or much Beyond the Toys.

Soz for the long post. If this takes off, future posts will be similar to the following: "thanks for last month you legends, the next figures are XXX, XXX, XXX and XXX"

Jez, I know there is a bunch of "beyond the toys" for Obi Wan.
A little bit for Klaatu & Dengar.
I don't think there is much for Anakin.

I'll try and put together some of the stuff from the different sections.

Edit:
Note, it is very hard to find Klaatu on a Canadian MOC at the moment. Even though it's a Jabba's Goon. There aren't many of this card available.

Anakin was never released here in Canada.  So I never had the figure as a child.
But I recently picked up a trilogo card for the collection. As the POTF card would be tough to find and would be out of my price range.

LOL, I've just physically written TANTIVE into my show notes. It's going to be epic and all your fault!!

Much love.

On another note i've just discovered something that i think is kinda cool. Jedi Temple Archives aren't tracking Dengar being released on a 79 back, however Tracker shows that 3 were sold all in Australia in 2015 and 2016. It just goes to show, every day is a school day Smile

Hey you guys! bounce
Thanks once again for your awesome contribution Clint. The podcast was released a couple weeks ago and has gone down a storm. The return to focus specifically on Vintage figures has been very well received.
Here is a dedicated Those Old Fossils Linktree which contains links to all Vintage based Those Old Fossils: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So you may be tracking that the next figures we'll be looking at in early August will be:
Walrus Man, Hoth Rebel Soldier, Biker Scout and R2 Pop Up. If there is anything that TantiveXI can bring to the party i'd appreciate it and once again direct people here Smile

Thanks mate, no rush whatsoever.
We've just recorded a really nice post Kenobi show deep dive and i believe that the lads will record a modern show whilst i'm on my holidays. I reckon we'll be recording this around the 4/5th August. Thanks again mate

I'm sure there would be some stuff in trading cards and books for the Hoth Rebel Soldier & Pop-up R2.
