THE MODERN WAY : EPISODE VII

Hover Pram. That's the word of the month on 'The Modern Way'. Stuart, Craig, Mark and Dan are joined by founding Generation Skywalker member Grant Criddle as we welcome him back to hosting duties.

It's a Mandalorian and The Phantom Menace feast this month as the team delve into the latest update on the Haslab razor Crest, The Mandalorian Retro Collection line and many other announcements, majority of which surround the Mando.

The team then take a trip down memory lane as they celebrate The Phantom Menace trailer which was released 22 years ago this month, before reminiscing about the hype on the build up to the film as they talk early Episode One toy memories as well as delving into the Midnight Madness event.

All this plus the usual smatterings of toy indulgence.

Enjoy the Show.

We Are Generation Skywalker!

Brilliant episode guys.
Great to hear Grant back on the airwaves again.
He came up with a very good point about what we class as “modern”.
This term is too all encompassing now, what with all the new VT and black series figures.
It would make sense that the POTF2 range. possibly including figures from the prequels were in a new sub class, possibly called “classic”.
The problem is that I suspect that there won’t be enough people to care...🤔😔 especially amongst the “big names” of the hobby.

Keep up the great work...although if you could slow down a bit and allow me to catch up I would appreciate it...🤣
Happy new year to you all.
It's great having him back and working together on this hobby we all love. I've truly missed @Grant_C and a real pleasure to be 'Star Warssing' with him again. He's always got great ideas, so really looking forward to seeing what we produce in 2021.

Totally agree with his comments too, kind of needs some defining for sure.

It's the final show of 2020 and what better way to end the year than to review the highlights in the modern world.

Join us to close out this dreadful year and welcome in a new one full of hope (and toys!!!)

Some great Christmas content put out there guys. Certainly kept me busy over the festive period. Loved the holiday special and sat down and sunk a few ales whilst listening to the Star Wars beers special. Echo others on here when saying it was nice to here Grant back on the airwaves. Looking forward to listening to the Zia Rezvi interview.

THE MODERN WAY : EPISODE X

The Modern Way returns as Craig, Mark, Grant, Dan and Stuart get together to look at a whole host of modern topics.

Now the dust has settled on the second season of The Mandalorian, the boys take some time to revisit the toys from the show. They delve into what we've already received and then discuss their hopes for what we could see in the future. We also take a look at a poll that ran across several collector Facebook groups and what the general hopes are from the community.

The team revisit all of Lucasfilms announcements back in December and discuss the impact that so many projects will have on the world of toys. Will we see a flooded market place with just main characters? Are background characters now a thing of the past?

As well as all this, we look at the recent announcements for Black Series, Hot Toys, Gentle Giant, Toy Box and Funko Pops, as Mark falls deep in love with the Valentine Pops that have been announced.

Enjoy the show.

What a great collecting journey to read grant. Just shows that you can get there in the end if you are prepared to wait and I'm hopeful that one day you will end up with the sealed (or resealed), figure, you really do deserve it. :D

That was a super read! Really interesting and it just goes to show that in this hobby, you never can tell what you'll find. It also serves as a warning to us all to be very careful before claiming something doesn't exist!

THOSE OLD FOSSILS : EPISODE VIII

Reproductions in the vintage toy hobby has been a source of topic once again recently.

Stuart, Craig and Mark are joined by special guest Lee Bullock to discuss the issue.

Retroblasting's, Michael French, recently posted a video defending the use of reproduction items in the hobby and attacking the anti-repro groups. All four of the hosts on this show sit firmly in the anti-repro camp, BUT, does the repro supporting members of the hobby have a point, a reasoned argument so to speak. The team take the main points from the video and discuss them in depth. What damage do reproductions do to the hobby? Were reproductions more accepted in the earlier days of the hobby? Is there a place for reproduction in the hobby? Could the Facebook groups do more with regards to reproduction? Is it time to change opinions on reproductions? The boys discuss all these issues and many more and try to give a balanced discussion with regards to reproductions. Does the conversation change their stance? You'll have to listen in.

But that's not all this month as Craig has come up with an original way to display his loose collection away from the norm. He goes through it bit by bit. Is it a cool way to display? Or has he lost the plot?

All this plus much more from this months Old Fossils.

Enjoy the show.

We Are Generation Skywalker!
