Unfortunately a lot of ebay sellers are the same. I can't blame them always though with such a blatant error.

Great show guys - really enjoyed this one!

Listened to it on my commute (on my push bike!) - really cool.

Interesting interviews chaps. Chris had good insights and good to hear Todd in person. I bought a couple of prototypes off him back in the day and had no idea that he was selling up. But I really hope he doesn't cut up that trilogo sheet...

Edd raised an interesting point earlier - why are repros so frowned upon when restored wax sculpts are OK?

Maybe pricing has a part to play. If loose vintage wasn't massively overpriced the issue of undeclared repros would be an annoyance rather than a costly exercise.

So is anybody going to own up as to why there was no latest acquisitions? One of my favourite bits!

because it was an in-joke which was done to death. I don't want to go down that path again it was painful enough :lol:


Take no notice of them Rich I like the R5 ducks. As the Christmas season approaches maybe this year's panto could be Mother Goose? Another great show. Very enjoyable. The Johnny Cash style track was really good too. :D

It's more that a 'repro' is totally fake, while something repaired is putting back together original pieces. As long as it's declared when sold I see no problem with the latter. I'd accept a repaired 'one-off' items completely - it's not like you could wait for another wax sculpt to come along.

At three and a bit hours that was a bit of a pop/punk podcast.

Thanks for these shows. They're a treat.

Well thanks very much, fellas. I was driving back at midnight from a 20 hours stint at work locking up bad guys (have that you money muling, cyber criminal punks) and the outtakes section at the end nearly caused me to crash several times. I had tears streaming down my face as I listened to the (nearly) title of "Aloha Taun-Todd 5-0 Quack". It shouldn't have been funny but it was. And listening to Rich explaining to bunch of giggling children that to spread duck jokes over 3 podcasts was not funny at all. Possibly my favourite bit of all 29 shows so far.

Aside from that, a cracking show (booooo on missing out on Latest Acquisitions!). I really enjoyed the POTF II discussion between Grant and Chris G, although I think Grant was more excited than Chris about it! Do it, Grant, come back to the darkside and collect a bit of modern. What's the worst that can happen......

:D Aaaaaah! That actually explains quite a lot! And I forgot to say: that interview was fascinating. I loved the way he said "I'm sure you know most of this..." I then divulged a ton of info I had no idea about whatsoever. Brilliant interview.
