THE MODERN WAY : EPISODE VIII

Continuing on this festive period of shows, Generation Skywalker brings you the latest edition of 'The Modern Way'.

The team once again delve into the latest announcements as we see yet more reveals for the Black Series and The Vintage Collection, but the majority of this months loving goes towards the Hot Toys Tusken Raider and even more so, for the four Episode One Tiki Mugs.

Keeping on a seasonal theme, we look into the world of Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments and discuss what we're hoping to see in 2021. And being Christmas, the team obviously have to delve into the modern archives to find their favourite ever Christmas related figure.

Enjoy the show.

We Are Generation Skywalker!

THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL 'SPECIAL'

"It makes us smile, but only because we are laughing at the utter horror. We laugh to avoid the pain" (Mark Beall)

"Words have not been invented to describe how bad it is" (Alex Carter)

"So astounding in its lack of anything that could be considered reasonably watchable that it achieves something of an unintended, surrealist nightmare vision" (Rob Humanick)


We could go on with more and more reviews similar to these opinions. But is The Star Wars Holiday Special really as bad as reported? Does it really justify the reputation that it has?

Jez, Craig and Stuart sit down to answer these questions. The three delve into Variety shows of that time, the plot, the music, the cast and crew amongst other areas to see if there is any charm and positives from this unappreciated 1978 special.

The boys also draw up their own Holiday Specials, with a 'what if' type discussion, if Disney had released a similar type show after The Force Awakens. Will Poe and BB-8 deliver salt from Crait to the Resistance to save Christmas Dinner? Will the 60 minute makeover team be able to rebuild Maz's castle? Will Han Solo's send off be as crazy as Ackmena using a conga to clear a Cantina, listen in and decide for yourselves!

Enjoy the show.

THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL REACTION SHOW

Following on from our Holiday Special 'Special', Dan, Craig, Stuart and Jez get together to watch the Holiday Special in it's entirety.

Offering their opinions they delve in with discussion, ever though some of that is through a grimace. None of them have watched it for many years, well apart from Jez who made his wife watch it just 24 hours before! What insights can this rabble offer that hasn't been said before. And stick around as each of them give it a rating out of ten, surely it scores highly, surely.

To get the full enjoyment head over to our YouTube channel and watch the Special in it's entirety with our Commentary edit.

Enjoy the show.

THOSE OLD FOSSILS : Episode VII

Grant, Mark, Craig and Stuart settle down to discuss Vintage Star Wars, and focus on the state of the hobby at the end of a horrendous 2020.

With the pandemic hitting hard, unemployment on the rise, uncertainty to when all this will end, the team admit that they all thought the hobby would take a battering over the year, but how wrong they were as prices spiraled out of control.

The boys look back at some of the stand out auctions from 2020, from C&T Auctions early lockdown Palitoy heavy sale, through to the final ever Astons Auction, they delve into the highlights and also look at some of the insane prices certain items went for. They then discuss the price rise and ponder if the current price structure of these much loved toys is actually sustainable.

It's a hot topic that get's some great discussion flowing.

Enjoy the show.

HE'S THE BRAINS, SWEETHEART!

Back during an Episode of 'Those Old Fossils' in May, Jez made the statement; "Give me a quiz on the original trilogy movies and I'd pan the lot of you", and so here we are to see if his arrogant boast can be backed up.

Jez takes on Craig, Grant and guest Marc Hockley as they go head to head in Classic Original Trilogy Trivial Pursuit.

Join in and answer the questions before they do and see how you get on.

Will Jez deliver? Will Grant send that email to Parker Brothers? Will Craig answer a question that isn't Princess Leia as an answer? Is Marc Hockley really there to make up the numbers (according to Jez)?

Listen in and find out.

Enjoy the show.

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.

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.
