I'm delighted to launch our new Star Wars project.
Over the last few months I've had the privilege of working alongside four other Star Wars fanatics as we started on a new journey.
With everything going on in the world at the moment we thought this was a choice time to launch. With people isolated, worried about their futures, sometimes the hobby can take a bit of a back seat, collecting may stall and become slower due to people watching their funds, so what better way to keep the fires burning than listening, learning and talking about all things Star Wars.

Here at Generation Skywalker we are more than just collecting. yes we will discuss Vintage collecting, but alongside that we will look at modern toys, the movies, TV Shows and literally everything in between. It's up to the listener/viewer what or how much they choose to consume but there will be something for everyone. And if you want to come on a show and get involved then even better, just drop any one of us 5 a message and we can make that work.

So where you can find us?
We are across a whole manner of places;

Podcasting
You can find us on practically any place you can download a podcast, here are a few of the common links;

Website
We have a website up and running which will evolve as the project does, we've got many plans. At the current time there is a fantastic blog post by Craig on Chinese Bootleg Comics which we discuss on our first Vintage Roundtable Show (out on Monday), the blog is a visual treat and is beautifully written.

YouTube
We also have a YouTube channel, please like and subscribe, we did have some plans for some opening videos but the current Corona Virus crisis has halted those ideas, but I'm sure we will sooner rather than later start putting out content on that medium too, so subscribe on the link below so you don't miss a thing.

Let's get this Monday started with another show!!!

Join Generation Skywalker on their first ever Vintage Roundtable.

The Skywalker team get together to discuss five topics attached to Vintage collecting. This month they ask, "why the hell do I collect these things?", before delving into Circus World and some special value yellow tape, which raises more questions than the team offers answers. Craig delves into the Chinese bootleg comic world of Lianhuanhua, he offers a fascinating look at this unrepresented area which runs beautifully alongside his blog post over on www.generationskywalker.com. As well as all this we also delve into the unproduced Sandspeeder and take a look at the wonderful imagination of the Imperial Commissary members as they dressed up as cardback art.

Enjoy the show!!!

We are Generation Skywalker.

Listened to the introductory episode today, great to hear you all on the airwaves again.

I like the sound of the new venture, something a bit different to whats out there at present. Best of luck with it and I'm looking forward to listening!
