Wow, now that 6 hours flew by. When are we going to break the 10 hour mark?
Another " crackin' " show fellas. Really enjoyed the interview with Derek Ho. Interesting to hear how the Star Wars fad hit Singapore. I'm even more jealous that his SW club meets up every couple weeks. We really need to get one started out here in Oregon (can't let the Seattle guys have all the fun as Palifan said to me the other day).
Just had a look at Steve Johnson's diorama. What a great idea and even better execution.
During Jez's LA segment, I believe it was Simon who was discussing props and custumes and mentioned that the original Leia dress and most of Han Solo's costume has been missing for years. I'm curious what happened to them. Back in 2006, My wife surprised me with tickets to go Star Wars, Where Science Meets Imagination. It was an exhibit that came to OMSI in Portland, Oregon for a couple months and there were a bunch of original props. Included in these props were Han and Leia's original costumes. I attached some pics from that event below.
I'm also sad to hear Grant is stepping down from his regular hosting duties, but will look forward to him making some guests appearances. Simon did a great job and will be a fine addition to the crew. And lastly, I'm thrilled that Pete will be returning. Can't wait to hear what new impressions he has up his sleeve along with his Market Watch. And I agree, bring back Top of the Pops!
I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again, and again). This is hands down the best Star Wars Podcast (of any kind). It's entertaining, love the banter and the fact you all don't take yourselves too seriously. It's also extremely educational. I've been collecting off and on since the early to mid 90's and I still learn something new virtually every show.
Carry on my good men. Carry on!
