Another fantastic episode and maybe a record for this months length (well it was the 50's!)?

It was nice to hear Marks thoughts on reseals, a subject that's been close to my heart for years now and in fact was the reason that I joined this forum back in 2012 as I was looking for a Chewbacca to complete my 12 back reseal run. I've now got the first 30 released reseals with a few extras and have enjoyed every minute of putting the collection together so can certainly see the appeal of them. I have noticed over the past couple of months a spate of reseals have been on ebay and I've even sold a few on here recently after a fairly big drought of them but it'll be interesting to see how many more come to the surface. I wonder if some of this has to do with the recent Star wars fatigue that's been happening or maybe the fact that the prices have gone up for the sellers. For me I just felt it was time to let some of my spares go and hopefully I've helped a few members get on their way to their own 12 back runs.

Looking forward to the next 50 episodes guys and now I'm back in the UK I'll have to meet up with you all at a future FF, it's been a long time coming for me :D

A long one indeed, I listened to half hour stints whilst on holiday and I did find that by the end of the podcast I'd forgotten some of the earlier content. When I listen in one go that isn't a problem. All enjoyable but it does make feedback difficult :)

I also liked Mark's reseal piece and good to hear Chris Porteous on the show. I know Chris from Instagram so good to put a voice to some photos

Just got a couple more ESB coloring books this week and 3 more Cloud Car images caught my attention. I think I’ve met my quota on this challenge for the month. :)
