Great episode guys. Especially good to hear about the catalogues which are often overlooked. I definitely like to hunt down everything that came in the box.

THE DIECAST : PART 2

The second part of the six part Diecast series, sees Stuart joined by Josh Blake to discuss the world of the Micro Collection from 1982.

Josh's knowledge on the subject makes for a fascinating listen with so information to ingest. Josh takes us through a whole host of Micro Collection topics, from his love for preproduction items in the range to customs and scandals. We take a look at the production pieces and also unproduced pieces that were planned or just mere concepts

So much to take in on this show, so buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Check out the facebook page that Josh runs on the Micro Collection too and join in the conversation.

Visual guide of the latest Diecast episode, full of images this one as Josh covers so many topics in so much depth, worth checking out in this format if the Micro Collection floats your boat.

THE MODERN WAY - EPISODE IV

On this months 'The Modern Way' there is mixed feelings towards the pieces discussed.

One thing that is unanimously loved however is Tiki Mugs, as Craig takes us through the history of Tiki and how we ended up with Star Wars themed Tiki mugs and other apparel. It's loved so much there's even a live purchase during the topic.

The loving doesn't flow throughout the whole show though when the team discuss the new Vintage Collection Carbon freezing Chamber, in fact it leaves the team cold (get it, freeze chamber, cold, I'm so funny!)

We take a look at the Vader and Luke Hyper Real figures as well as delving into new announcements for Black Series, Vintage Collection, Galaxy's Edge inspired toys and the beautiful Hot Wheels Dagobah X-wing.

We look at our favourite Han Bespin molds through the ages before Jez reveals to the lads that he wants to be known as Mr Loverman from now on!
All this and plenty more from this months 'The Modern Way'.

Enjoy the show.

Be sure to check out Craig's latest blog post over on our website. I never fancied the Tiki mugs until Craig covered it on the latest show and this blog, for me, is his best to date, and I ended up buying one during the show and am seriously considering a Tiki bar as part of my garage conversion.

Hitting Your Target (The Running Stormtrooper Podcast

Generation Skywalker urge you to listen to this very special standalone podcast episode which we're delighted to be part of.

Since February, Jez and Stuart have been producing a short (35-50 minute) monthly Running Stormtrooper Podcast. An easily listening fresh podcast aimed at sharing some positivity and hopefully some fun. It's family friendly and of interest to everyone; runners, Star Wars fans, would-be charity fundraisers or people bored of negativity and in need of A NEW HOPE.

We've offered to add their latest episode onto our platform as we think it's so good it needs to be listened to by as many people as possible.

You'll see near the end of the episode exactly how important this is to the lads and we're sure that you'll agree that we've done the right thing by sharing this with you.

If you do anything today, do it whilst listening to this episode. MTFBWY.

Enjoy the show.

We are Generation Skywalker!

THE THRAWN TRILOGY

It's five years after Return of the Jedi: the Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet to a distant corner of the galaxy. Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.

In 1991, Star Wars boomed back into fans lives with the release of the Timothy Zahn novel, Heir To The Empire. It began the start of a trilogy of books, affectionately known as 'The Thrawn Trilogy'. Stuart and Craig are joined by Mark Mulcaster and Mark Newbold for a roundtable to discuss this trilogy and the impact it had on the Star Wars Universe. Join us as we reminisce about characters old and new, a plot which perhaps should have been the sequel trilogy on screen and just how much these books changed the Star Wars landscape.

Enjoy the show.

Stephen J. Sansweet

As book month continues, extra special guest, Stephen J. Sansweet, join Stuart and Dan to delve into the many books he has written.

Head of Fans Relations at Lucas Film for 15 years, Stephen was author or co-author of 18 books, 16 of which were Star Wars books. From Concept To Screen To Collectible was the catalyst book for the Star Wars collecting hobby and impacted everyone who purchased it back in 1992. Since then he has released action figure guides, poster books, encyclopedias, vaults, price guides, scrapbooks and quote books. And take it from us, every one of them is a must in any Star Wars library.

We discuss the impact of both From Concept To Screen To Collectible and The Tomart's Guide in depth as well as looking at Stephens other literary works.

This is a fascinating insight into a pioneer of our much loved hobby and a must listen interview.

Enjoy the show.
