THE FIRST 12 (MONTHS)

It’s our one year anniversary and to celebrate our 'first 12' months you’re invited to party with us as we look back on a jam-packed year of fascinating stories, enthusiastic debates and in-depth showcases.

As well as all our of best bits, we lift the lid on the whole Generation Skywalker project, with an informal look behind the scenes of everything we do, why we do it and what we plan to do next.

And with contributions from over 20 fans and collectors, it’s a great overview if you are new to us – and a fun look back, if you have been with us from the start.

Most of all, it’s a big 'thank you' to anyone who has clicked and listened since we got things off the ground last spring. We really appreciate it.

Few new things have been released over the last few days over on Generation Skywalker.

Craig has had a go and customising a black series figure, turning Paploo into a completely different Ewok!

********** NEW SHOW LIVE **********

SETH ELWELL

As older collectors, we sometimes wonder where the next generation of vintage obsessives will come from.

Meet 11 year old Seth and hear how a chance encounter with a Rebel Commando in an old toy box set him and his dad, Richard, on a path to complete a loose run.

It's been an online, locked-down journey of discovery for Seth and is proving an enjoyable nostalgia trip for Rich too. Though, with both of them being brand new to the hobby, there have been the inevitable mis-steps along the way.

It's enlightening to hear such fresh perspectives on collecting, as Seth chats about repros, grading, the Dagobah playset and his indifference towards Jar Jar Binks and animated Clones. This boy has a vintage head on his young shoulders.

Along with some choice reminiscences from Rich and reflections on Craig’s attempts to spark the collecting bug in his own children, it's an interview that will strike a chord with anyone whose parent/child bond has been strengthened by a shared love of old Star Wars toys.

******** NEW SHOW LIVE ********

THE MODERN WAY : Episode XI

Stuart, Dan, Grant and Jez settle in for this month's 'The Modern Way'.

This months announcements give the team loads to sink their teeth into as they delve into the four Black Series Comic Inspired figures. We look at other announcements for Black Series, The Vintage Collection and Lego, as well as heaping more love on the latest Hot Toy announcements, with Fett and Bo Katan central to the teams praise.

Since the last show, Gina Carano has been fired from her role in 'The Mandalorian', we take a look at this and how it has affected the price of Cara Dune merchandise. We also look at Hasbro Pulse news with regards to their Fan Fest on April 9th and the news that Hasbro Pulse will expand to the U.K. The boys also take a look at the news that Hasbro are reviewing their packaging for the Black Series, as they try and reduce their plastic usage.

Dan takes us through his recent blog on Micro Machines, which you can find over at www.generationskywalker.com, as the boys reminisce about the 90s and Galoob's part in the Star Wars Universe (and yes we are aware it is Galoob, even though the author of the blog often refers to them as Galoop!).

As well as all this we have Potato Tent Pegs, Formula One Cars, toys in the Star Wars movies and a wonderful Rey print from the brilliant Nerd Head Designs, which you could win by heading over to the Generation Skywalker community page on Facebook.

Loads to get involved in on this month's The Modern Way.

Enjoy the show.

We Are Generation Skywalker!
