Collecting Guides

The team continue on their look at books this month, this time delving into Collecting guides.

There are so many Collecting Guides out there, from outdated price guides and encyclopedias through to specific topics and design books, there really is something for everyone that collects.

The lads look at what makes a good collecting guide, discuss some of the stand out authors in this realm and then they all bring three collecting books to the table that either made an impact on them through the years or basically just their favourite collecting book.

Enjoy the show.

A recent Palitoy Landspeeder find with an ultra rare Boba Fett sticker is also up for discussion, which also sparks a debate when Dan reveals his favourite five toy stickers through the Vintage era.

All this plus much more for listeners to sink their teeth into.

THE MODERN WAY : EPISODE VI

Modern collectors will have been foaming out the month the last couple of weeks with the constant announcement of modern collectibles. And it's made our show jam packed with the latest toy news.

We delve into the amazing Haslab project, the Razor Crest, and what a stunning project it is. We look at all The Vintage Collection and Black Series releases, including Mark's favourite Holiday special figures. We discuss Hot Toys, Funko Pops, Force FX Lightsabers, Polaroid cameras and the amazing Regal Robot Rancor Statue. Mark also declares his love for the Lego the Child.

With certain items in hand the team can give their opinions of their latest purchases as we look at the Lego Cantina, Black Series Endor Heroes Set, Black Series Armorer and the latest Wampa release.

Dan then takes us through his love of Steel Books in reference to his blog post on the subject over at www.generationskywalker.com, a fascinating subject.

The boys also choose their favourite Chewbacca action figure through the ages, however, the love of Chewie action figures had a lot to be desired and for one team member the love of Chewie himself!

Enjoy the show.

THOSE OLD FOSSILS : EPISODE VI

The latest episode of 'Those Old Fossils' lands and what could be more fitting than a Halloween Special for Halloween.

Thinking about Halloween and scary stories... there’s an element of Star Wars that always puts Craig in mind of the famous HG Wells book (and subsequent movies adaptations) ‘The Island of Doctor Moreau’.

Written in 1896 its a very early science fiction horror story telling the tale of Edward Prendick who is shipwrecked, rescued by a passing boat and is left on the island home of Doctor Moreau, a mad scientist who creates human-like hybrid beings by experimenting on humans and animals.

But how does all that relate to Star Wars? Craig is thinking, of course, of George Lucas’s fascination in creating alien races by taking earth-bound animals and turning them into human-like beasts.

So looking at things in that (rather grim) context Craig thought it would be a bit of Halloween fun to explore this while reimagining Lucas as a mad scientist surrounded by his creations.

‘The Island of Dr Modesto’, if you will...

Enjoy the Show.

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.

Come, Let me get your something...

What goes in hand with Star Wars, it's beer of course, and we welcome you to join us for the first ever Generation Skywalker Beer Show.

Stuart, Craig, Jez, Dan and Mark are joined by Kimberley Owen, a trainee beer sommelier, who takes us through a beer tasting of 5 Star Wars beers from Moor Beer, Tiny rebel, Brew York and Original Stormtrooper breweries. Kimberley really knows her stuff as she takes the boys out of their comfort zones as she teaches them how to appreciate what they are drinking.

Craig takes us through his latest blog post over on www.generationskywalker.com, where he looks at the drinking culture on screen from the movies, TV shows and Expanded Universe, before taking us on a Star Wars beer trip looking at beers based on the franchise from independent breweries.

We also look at drinking vessels, bottle openers, ways of keeping your beer cool and other Star Wars beer merch during this tasting delight.

Be sure to check out the enhanced version of the show over on out youtube channel where you will be able to see exactly what we're discussing and tasting whilst we discuss.

Be sure to check out Kimberley's work on social media, search for @craftbeerpinup and follow her blog at Craft Beer Pin Up – A blog with a love of Craft Beer & Pin Up Style

We also have a fantastic competition at the end of the show, where you can win yourself a whole host of beer related goodies for you to try yourself, so be sure to get yourself involved.

Enjoy the show.
