Happy New Year everyone, we hope all listeners (and stalkers) are well and still collecting vintage Star Wars items during these Apocalyptic times. All the hosts are still alive however Jason has collected so much stuff that a hole in his collecting room wall has opened up as the 1980s has created a time vortex and is starting to reclaim certain parts of his collection. 

Our guest this month is Dutch collector Marc Kuin. Marc discussed the early days of collecting Star Wars in the Netherlands and his struggles trying to locate any items in the wild. We also cover his love of Stormtroopers and unexpected path to die-cast vehicles and hunting.

We launch Vintage Rebellion Swap Shop.

Vintage Rebellion Swap Shop is a new monthly feature where during 2021 (from January to December) we will attempt to raise a lot of money for CLIC Sargent. Using the notion of the Swap. Jason has kindly offered a Bib Fortuna Vintage Pen Topper to kick us off. All we ask is you offer us something a tiny bit better (vintage Star Wars preferably, but if you want to offer a brand new car, then thats cool too). Then, in December we will sell off our final swapped item and give all funds to CLIC Sargent. Contact us via facebook or social media with your offer. If we get a load of offers, we'll discuss next month and decide. Could be fun and raise money for a great cause. How far can we go?

Richard's Rebel Briefings are actually fairly brief but packed in very nicely. There are a couple of cracking Palitoy bulk finds, a Uzay mystery, a book funding success and something a little cheesy so expect Andy Preston to jump on that. 

Licensee section is about our love for all things Japanese with a look at Takara, we find that Mr Andy Spoons is more than just a fan of Godzilla, but an avid collector of the range. We reminisce about Japanese cartoons on kids TV back in the day.

And theres other stuff such as our collecting targets for the year.

Don't forget to check out the youtube version, put together by our Video Wizard Chris Porteous https://youtu.be/bTSTxOZJTTA

Another great episode lads and particularly enjoyed the Takara section this month.

The first anime series that I remember growing up was Marine Boy and I used to love the theme tune and the fact that he used oxygum to breath under water. Also I do remember an episode of Battle Of The Planets where Zoltar either took or had his mask knocked off and seeing his long flowing hair. As I remember it, 7 Zark 7 made a comment about this in the episode so maybe this duel gender moment that was mentioned in the podcast was acknowledged in some way?

I also thought that it might be a good idea if Andy Preston starts a thread in the Vintage Showcase section for every time he redresses his new cabinet, it might be a fun thing to look at over the year.

Great start to the podcast year and looking forward to what's to come.

Cheers Ian, thanks for the kind words.

I’m already posting my Detolf Displays in my showcase thread on here, looking forward to updating it with each rotation of ‘tat’ - as my wife calls it!
