Toy Run Podcast

Postby Bonsai_Tree_Ent » Fri Feb 02, 2018 5:31 pm

I hope Stu, Rich and the boys will forgive me for making a shout out to Toy Run podcast. Ian put me in touch with them and I was interviewed on this week's episode.

The interviewer was Criz Bee who was himself also on the Vintage Rebellion back on Ep 29, I think we had a great chat, always good talking vintage Star Wars...

You can download it on iTunes or link here: http://www.toyruncast.com/e/episode-95- ... -with-you/

Plus on the episode they revealed a vintage toy sighting that I hadn't heard of before. Han Bespin spotted randomly in an old Paul Mcartney music video. Maybe Macca is a focus collector...

Just finished listening to your interview Matt and really enjoyed it. I was going to say that you should put a post up for it so I was glad to see it pop up here as soon as I finished listening to it. We are of roughly the same age so it's always nice to hear peoples memories from that time back in the 70's when Star Wars came into our lives, it really did have quite the impact as it has for so many since.

The Toy Run podcast is always a great listen and it was nice to hear an interview based around the vintage era which doesn't happen that often on there. Hopefully it will help to get even more people through the door to admire your collection and as I'll be back in the UK soon I'm looking forward to getting to see it myself. I'll also drop you a PM when I'm in Canterbury next as it's my wife's home town and maybe we can have a meet up to talk all things vintage.

Check it out all!

I love the Toy Run Matt, listen at work on a Monday so extra enthused knowing you're on it.

Both Criz and Jake know there stuff, particularly modern, they smash out a great show every week. Look forward to listening to this one.

Great interview Matt. Your enthusiasm for SW knows no bounds. And if anyone’s interested in the Rebel Scum limelight mentioned it’s so worth a look.

Hope you don’t mind me posting Matt but it’s an amazing sight and also extremely informative if you’re collecting variants or complete box sets.

I've no idea why this thread was the most viewed one on RS, it's just full of old toys!

Wow, that is an amazing collection Matt and thanks for posting up the link TheJabbaWookie, such a great resource for checking figures ect.

If you want to know what catalogues, posters and pamphlets came with what vintage ship or playset Matt’s RS thread and Emille’s (Capetown’s) limelight on this forum are second to none. Always cross referencing it,

This kind of information is priceless to have so thankfully these are both out there to cross reference things.

You absolute hussy! Going on other podcasts not directly related to these pages.

Thanks for the tip. The podcast has weirdly gone under my raidar and it looks like I'll need to fix that. It looks like a goody.

Edit just so it's owners know. Podbean won't let me download the mp3 in the normal way without downloading its software ( which i hate because I'm a dreadful old fusspot ), even with 'request desktop site' turned on. I'm aware that free podcast hosting isn't perfect but i thought I'd mention it as it's probably why I've not heard the show previously and I'm probably not the only stubborn old goat who frets about these things. Cheers, an old fusspot.

Great stuff Matt!

Not listened to toy run before so enjoyed some new voices.

Coincidentally my sister and her family went to the exhibition this weekend and she invited us all down to go again as they enjoyed it so much

With the news that Barnsley is next I’ll be seeing it twice!

Is there a list of where your exhibition is going to be on?
I missed it when it was on in Canterbury, but would like to see it if I can while out and about this year.
