Loving this so far.
Congratulations on putting a great group of knowledgeable collectors together for a new take on Star Wars collecting.
I wish you good luck with the new venture, but also feel that you won’t need it. 8)
Oh, by the way...great logo by one of the best designers I know!

The blog post to accompany the Chinese Bootleg Comic discussion is on the website (link below), massively worth checking out, Craig has researched the area well and his blog post is beautifully written and full of images of what was being discussed on the podcast. Some amazing images, so even if you can't read like @Jez you can still enjoy the images.

New show for the weekend.

Generation Skywalker welcomes their very first ever guest, as Christopher James Leddy, one of the nicest guys in the universe joins Stuart to discuss collecting Hot Toys. A discussion which has since made Stuart order a couple of Hot Toys himself!

The interview follows the golden Generation Skywalker rule, five items that curate your collection, although Christopher was a little loose with the images he supplied as you hear! Chris tells us what Hot Toys are to him and why he collects the line, we discuss his own podcast channel - Sixth Scale Scavengers, and delve into his favourite items from his collection and what he's looking forward to that's coming out later this year.

Enjoy the show!

We are Generation Skywalker!

Chilled and listened to the first episode this morning with my collection around me. I have to say it was a great little escapism from all the shit that's going on and I really enjoyed the chat, hearing what you're all up to collecting wise at the moment and getting to know Craig a little bit. Sometimes it's nice to immerse yourself in a world you're familiar with and your discussion has made me reflect today on my own collecting journey, so thanks for that. Keep em' coming :)

Listened to the intro show today, nice to hear some familiar voices back on the 'airwaves' and it sounds like Craig will be an invaluable asset to the team. Sounding slick so far, look forward to checking out the first episodes soon.

Lads thank you so much for the positive feedback and comments!

Dam you @Stuart Skinner I was 100% never interested in anything apart from Vintage. However, I've just listened to that bloody interview with Chris Leddy talking about Hot Toys and you've got me looking at stuff online! Dam it!!

THE MODERN WAY - March 2020

Generation Skywalker introduce the first of their monthly Modern Roundtable shows - The Modern Way.

Daniel Burgess joins Simon, Mark, Craig and Stuart to discuss a few topics that have been in discussion over the last few months. They chat about the sad end to the 5 p.o.a. line, where is best to purchase modern items in the UK, delve into the 5" line before looking at a selection of Mandalorian items that have either been released or announced.

Will Dan allow his child to open some modern figures? Will Mark allow himself to like anything modern? Will Stuart weaken and buy a Hot Toys? Listen in as the team all deal with their own modern issues.

Enjoy the show!

We are Generation Skywalker!
