Just got round to completing the podcast. Podcast gold as a Jez describes it. Loved the quiz, even managed to get a few answers myself. Can’t believe Jez is hanging up his boots for a 3 month break - talk about quitting while he’s ahead!

Loved the Landspeeder focus at the end of the new acquisitions section. Never came across it as a child, but totally love it as an adult. It’s been top of my WTB list for a year or so. The Palitoy packaging might be better (what with the gorgeous logo and graphics) but it’s definitely the Kenner open bonnet version I’m after. Would the early release patent pending Palitoy version be the Kenner open bonnet toy inside the Palitoy box? If so this would be the ultimate version for me.

Great info on the Collectors Series from Rich and topped up by Ron. Top work all round chaps.

Oh yeah I should have said that, despite my preference for the open bonnet*, the Palitoy box is my favourite. That stars-out scene looks lovely. It's also the first boxed SW toy I ever saw so I'm biased.

* I have no idea why that reads like a Viz style obscure double entendre.

Thanks for the hard work guys, it’s appreciated, great show this month.
Enjoyed the interview with Jon, took me back to the last time I collected, I remember the Cheshunt fairs with much fondness...different times!
Always enjoy the quiz (I too got one or two correct answers, including the cloud car one!) Rebel briefing’s and New acquisition’s including the non produced Ewok range, great.
It’s been said before by others, but so pleased Pete’s back for good, but sorry hear that Jez is off for a few months (someone has to be, before Rich says anything :lol: ); good luck with your studies.
Carry on doing what you do, still the best SW podcast out there by miles.

Enjoying the chat about the Ewoks line. It made me think, has anyone ever met a die-hard Droids or Ewoks fan? I have seen people who love the prequels because that was their era, but in my experience everyone who collects D&E are just vintage collectors that ran out of 78-85 stuff to buy. Surely there must be some people out there who missed the OT and grew up on Droids and Ewoks?

I don't think it helps that the UK got the cartoons late. Even I didn't give a monkeys about them.

Yeah I've suspected those that collect them are just looking for something to do. Ill be delighted when I'm proven wrong a few posts down tho! :)

I've never been interested in them because they've got no nostalgia interest to me and, having seen the cartoons now, I reckon them to be shite.

Great Podcast Jon, I totally agree with your comments on the Matrix and I also like to see proof myself, I just find it quite pathetic that some collectors like their little secrets, we know pretty much who they are, at the end of the day it’s a plastic toy!!!

I don’t see what the problem is, but just think it’s extremely childish, I haven’t seen a 41 back Dengar along with a lot of others so until i do it doesn’t exist.

With regard to the matrix, it’s very good but needs updating more often, using up to date photos would be good for all the collectors.

Bit late with my feedback this month, but another great episode, thanks guys. The interview with Jon was really interesting, as a Palitoy collector myself I've gone down much the same collecting journey and a lot of what was discussed brought back memories for me.

The Landspeeder discussion was good fun and I'd like to mention another couple of great related collectibles, the Waddingtons action figure jigsaws, both of which feature the Palitoy landspeeder prominently.

I'm also a fan of the Droids and Ewoks line having watched the cartoons as a kid (slightly too old for them but hey, it's Star Wars!). I bought my loose and carded sets in the 90s when no-one really wanted them, I don't think I'd pay today's prices but I'm glad I have them in my collection.

And finally thanks Richard for the kind words about my Palitoy custom carded figures, that's really good to hear and i'm glad you appreciated them.

Havent had any new updates to the matrix to add to it. I think its approaching the limit of what's out there now.

If you have anything new to add, please let me know.

cheers Jason

I was aware of the movie scenes jigsaws from Waddingtons but I have never seen the ones you have posted. I may have to look out for those.

They're wonderful things but increasingly expensive. I just sold the pair I had. They were in Homebase picture frames and look cool but I don't have the wall space for them. They sold for £100 the pair, which is a bit bonkers, I think.
