I agree with Rich, the recording and editing process takes many many hours each month, we work on show for around three weeks each month and then have a week off before starting again. To add photos that run alongside a 5/6 hour show would add an awful lot of work and time and not sure any of us can commit to that amount of extra time each month.

However, the comments about seeing the item before the show is usually aimed at the gimcrack items, so in future (as of episode 50) I will put the pictures of the items selected directly under the main post in this thread when I put it up.

Thank you all for the feedback, we really do appreciate the comments, inspires us to keep on going.

Only just made it through the Rebel Briefings section but thought that was really interesting and informative. The Star Wars pontoon section made me want to revisit my original post and read much more into it. As I’ve just started an offerless 20/21 Back run it was very insightful. I might go onto Ross Barr’s 12 / 21 Back group on FB and see if they have any more info. All I know is I won’t be owning an offerless 2nd wave 20b debut release anytime soon :lol:

And the price sticker section was also really interesting too. A couple of my recent offerless 21 Back purchases have had the stickers removed but have left more residue than my Tusken Raider. I normally like stickers - one of my favourite pieces is my Wampa with BHS sticker as my mum worked there when I was a nipper and would have purchased some of my Star Wars toys from there, but I am tempted to try and clean the remaining residue away. It was interesting to read some of the threads and see what kind of damage (invisible or not) you can do to the MOCs as well as losing forever the historical cataloguing of each item.

Great idea, good compromise.
The hard work does show through and really is appreciated!

I have to say how much I love The Star Wars Tracker Tøp 5. The combination between Yellow Pearl and Pete’s dulcet tones are quite simply marvellous!!

Smashing episode as ever

This is my childhood Rebel Troop Transport, Pleased I never took it up to Gateshead as Richard and his gang would have smashed it for sure. It’s currently, proudly being displayed on top of the wardrobe in the spare bedroom. My girlfriend hates it, she said “can’t you just bin it?” the other day. She reckoned if I put it on eBay no one would buy it as it’s so ugly. Not to everyone’s taste but part of the original line so essential for any serious collector.

Im surprised they haven’t rereleased it since it’s similar to the really crappy slow ship they are on in the Last Jedi?

Plenty of vintage this episode, was it a deliberate decision to talk more about the toys and less about Solo/ Disney, etc. If so, wise move. However I would have liked to know if you all enjoyed Solo.

Very entertaining and greatly appreciated.

Still trying to catch up on episodes - just one comment to Pete on your "Big Pick" item finally arriving to you (very early discussion in the podcast). You mentioned it odd that the item was shrink wrapped over the top of the store price sticker. My understanding about the big pick items is that the owner collected this stuff, then did his own shrink wrapping on much of it to protect it better in storage. Chris Fawcett let me use a bunch of the images for Star Wars Tracker, and a whole lot of the boxed vehicles etc have this shrink wrapping going on.

Not sure I see the issue. When I open the board--i.e., "Suggestion Box"--I simple click on the little box by the thread title that says "NEW", and it takes me to the first unread post.

Did I mis understand what it is you were looking for?
