Excellent episode as usual lads.

Had two flashbacks listening this month:

When I was a kid every Thursday I would check the local free paper to see what was on at the nearby cinema. Often it would take weeks for the latest films to play. Sometimes they would miss us out completely. We would never travel the 10 miles or so to Newcastle to see something at the cinema. If they missed us out, you had to wait 'til it was on TV!! Sometimes films would do a second circuit and you might see it then. Crazy.

I used to love those Burtons biscuits so much. I actually felt a bit sick when they got a mention, I gorged on them so much in the 80's. The Jabba ones were the best.

Great round table discussion. I love Jarod's App, great resource.

Simon seems to be getting a lot more abuse that Richard these days. Very funny. Appreciate the hard word.

Really enjoyed the round table, some very valid points put across coherently.

There is definitely some truth to this so-called “millennial” generation, Spoons is right that it has always been there to a degree but before Facebook the ‘like’ and instant gratification that comes with it simply didn’t exist. I recently employed a 22 year old in my team, and if I don’t tell him he’s done a great job every 5 minutes he thinks he is doing something wrong. He even emails me individual lines of code to congratulate him about. I’ve never seen this behaviour before with older members of my team, I’m sure it’s because of social media.

Thanks for all the feedback, guys, glad to hear that the latest episode is well received.

I would, however, like to highlight the above as the most valid feedback to date, thanks DarthBobby, you have real insight. How I deserve more abuse than the northerner I don't know. I guess it's my good looks, adonis-like physique, winning personality and modesty that intimidate the rest of them. Understandable.

Ian, I do agree, Luke Jedi blue sabre on TL does indeed appear to make Madine seem common. And no, he doesn't have one, but only one of those Madine's was his, IIRC ;)

Taffius, mouldy chicken is a term of endearment in the grimmer and less developed parts of the country.

I have seen a few egos looking for massages! Have you seen a lot of "my torch is brighter than your torch"?

What I have witnessed lately are "snowflakes". Very delicate and fragile.

Just finished it, very enjoyable as ever. I would like to thank Pete for mentioning the new video game Facebook group, if anybody would like to have a look or join it is here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/187354552040809/

Also got to agree with Simon about Echo Base, an otherwise fine group really does let itself down by censoring outside links. It's the North Korea of Facebook groups. Without sharing information this hobby is nothing, and it really shows based on the amount of ill-informed members in the group. Open the doors guys, it will benefit you not harm you.

It's bullying mate, plain and simple. Stuart Skinner seems to be the main culprit. He's very brave now he's got the life size Ewok for back up!

On the subject of AFA mislabeling, in the early days of grading before Ford's palitoy.org matrix got going, AFA had to come up with their own letter designations, some of which differed from the ones we now use on Ford's, and now my matrix. It looks like they conform to this now. So, it's only seen on very early graded Palitoys, and the cards are sufficiently different that nobody should be confused anyway.
