Great show fellas, but who is that putz you had on for the main interview? I about fell asleep listening to him blab on for an hour.
Seriously, thanks again for having me on. I had a great time chatting it up with Stu and Rich. I’m also stoked by the amazing rendition of me as Indiana Jones on the cover photo. Time to go buy a new hat.
I really enjoyed hearing about the supposed Palitoy Landfill. If this is in fact true, it is completely plausible that the toys and possibly the packaging could still be in decent condition. There is an excellent documentary called Atari: Game Over where they search for old Atari games (mainly the game E.T.) that were buried in the early 80's. It's actually on YouTube if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew8j62WaZ7Q
Loved hearing about Andy's Palitoy Halloween masks (along with the story of his mom throwing the Sand People mask in the bin because it was too scary). I remember dressing up in the Ben Cooper Vader costume a couple times for Halloween. Loved that costume! I may not fit in it anymore, but it works great for my Halloween Skeleton. Definitely has got some comments over the past couple of years. lol
I also enjoyed all the Hammerhead discussion. The best description I've ever seen of Hammerhead was from this ad in Famous Monter's Magazine in 1979.
"“Luke and Ben encountered the Hammerhead at the Cantina in Mos Eisley on Tatooine. There he was, playing cards and sharing a cup of grog with some very alien friends.” Doesn't get much better than that. Here is the ad where you can read all of the descriptions of our beloved Cantina Aliens.
