Another cracking episode, amazing how quickly 5+ hours can fly by! Really enjoyed all the interviews and guests. I must stop being such a miserable bastard, I'm going to get a reputation :lol:

I thought your discussion on variants was quality. Don't change mate, makes for great reading (and I agree with you)

Excellent listen once again. However regarding the klaatu focus collectors there is another. His real name escapes me but he's about on FB....

As for a jabba goon with a unique weapon, isn't the rancor staff very similar to tusken gaffi staff?

It's a toss up what irritates Stu more. Buying a drink or losing a quiz.

Good spot Stef! Yet more cheating that I ignored for the greater good. :D

Haha, I'll send you an unedited version of that recording and you'll see how bad the cheating was but apparently Rich has some photos of Jez or something that he's threatened to put on social media unless he toes the line.

Listened to it this week at work. Classic episode! Blockbusters cracked me up. Enjoyed a lot of the discussion and the food items interview. Nice work chaps :)

Woah woah woah. Back the Sand Crawler up. Stu you was wingeing like a right beatch. Even Rich had a bleet at one point. You were all having a moan. No one wants to listen to the raw recording. It took you bunch of amateurs about 5 minutes to answer the first question.
So i take it that a return to Blockbusters in the future might be a popular decision.

Yeah Stef, i did consider the Gafi Stick when i was writing the questions but to be fair, i gave them Rancor Keeper as things were really dragging and they needed a boost. Didn't stop them moaning though.

Still have a few hours left (thats a good feeling in it's self) but so far a cracking show.

Carbonite Blockbusters, never thought that this would work with no visuals, but absolutely brilliant, must have got so many funny looks while driving home and laughing like an idiot. :!: Haven't lauged so much since the great "muff" debate. :lol:
Brought back so many memories hearing the into music and the gold run was just as frantic as I remember it, thanks.
Just love the cheating, it did come across that you were a bad loser Stu, but "it was all down to the editing " I am sure... :lol:
Keep the quizzes coming.

Todd Fisher, well that has put a question mark over the whole auction, will be interesting to see what happens there.

The interview with Lee Harris was very intresting, great to hear the differences/similarities with Uk collecting, don't know if the Rolf Harris Intro was apt, but did make me laugh!

Agree with everything Richard said about varients, it feels to me like people are creating a market that doesn't really exist, but everyone to their own.

I thought Ross came across as a genuine guy in Richard's intterview, if they were UK based I think I would use them, don't really relish sending my stuff to the US, but their loose figure cases are top class, so far ahead of the competition.

Always look forward to new acqasitions and the topics that spin off from them.

All this and still got a few hours left for the journey down to FF next weekend, looking forward to it, hope to see you all there.

Thanks. :D

PS: Seahawks, what a great post, really enjoyed reading about the purchase of your Imperial Shuttle, one of the best I have read this year. Thanks for sharing.

Hold the phones, ladies! How, exactly, is the Rancor stick like the Gaffi stick? Different colour and different end! That's like saying the letter "W" isn't unique in the alphabet because is the same as the letter "V". It's unique, get over it. The Squid head gun is unique too.....ooh, good point. Come on Stu, think we deserve another point.

Can't actually believe a variant collector has brought that argument up. Stef, shame on you ;) :lol:

My blue snaggletooth made the podcast. And I think a discussion of my collection growing rapidly. Great podcast.
