Re: 43 year s late, I spot a joke in ANH.

He must have accidentally hit a button for it to record to broadcast TV during the operation because, for a few seconds, an Indian snake charmer appeared doing his t...

Re: Vintage Rebellion Episode 72 Launched

Thanks for your work in getting these to us even in down time. Especially in down time. Regarding the readalong 7" records, they did turn up here. A non collecting friend of mine has his childhood copies in his record collection. I was surprised to see such things as I only remember the red tapes ma...

Re: The Vintage Rebellion Episode 69 Launched

Thankyou. You make hours of chores go by in a flash. Also. What's in that Thermos Hughie? Pea and ham. Pea and ham, from a chicken?! Now that's clever.

The Pali Death Star. I'm just old enough to have seen it on cardbacks and inserts that were still in the shops but not the toy itself.

Re: Space efficient (and cheaper) alternative to Star Cases

I actually use them for display: I don't have hi-end MOCS and I think they look nicer than star cases despite not being as strong. I long for a shallow star case too though as they can straighten a really warped card.

These things are nice.

Re: 2019 Christmas Tat

I've been short of mugs and I've been holding off buying some HOPING for a regular Star Wars mug or two, which would be very nice.

Re: SPOILERS THREAD-The Rise of Skywalker-SPOILERS THREAD

I like it. Everything Matt said basically. I'll add that if things getting very sequellish, in a humongous way that sometimes isn't completely sensible, is a complete deal-breaker for you then avoid the eighth sequel to anything and stick to the originals. I was genuinely moved a number of times and...

Re: The Vintage Rebellion Episode 66 Launched

Thanks more education, information and entertainment. You run a public service.

Kudos to Jason for attempting The Adventure Game in audio form. TAG co-starred Kenny Baker as the alien leader who took the form of a grumpy aspidistra.
