Episode 85 : May The Force Be With Euros - The Vintage Rebellion Podcast
With the 2020 European Championship in full swing the lads have gone football crazy this month (yes, yes, yes... we've been getting too drunk and its a bit late), discussing which Star Wars action figures would make it into the TVR fantasy football squad.
The New Acquisitions section brings a plethora of goodies from Messrs Norton, Preston and Smith, with Rich and Pete sadly bereft. In Action Figure Face-Off the battle is between a General, a Commander, a Pilot and a Pirate - with perhaps a surprising outcome.
After a quiz in which quizmaster Richard makes up the answers on the fly - but is always right - the lads give shout outs to a great assortment of items including a childhood collection rediscovered after 35 years. The chat moves on to Rebel Briefings, to discuss Bespin Prime showcases, dodgy bootlegs, Rebelscum changing hands, another Prop Store bonanza and speculation over re-naming Slave One.
With no interview this month, the licensee section definitely has the X-Factor, as the team delves into the buttons, badges, patches, t-shirts and a myriad of other product issued by early licensee Factors.
All this with the usual mix of fun and frivolity as well, look for the podcast in the normal places .
