STAR WARS The Vintage Rebellion Podcast

Episode 63 : MetropoChris

August 22, 2019

The Vintage Rebellion rumbles on post Jexit, as Stuart, Richard and Pete are joined by two of the five rotating guest hosts, this month we welcome Edd Grant and Jason Smith on board to help us with the void that Jez leaves.

Pete takes control of the interview this month as he completes his trilogy of Toy Shop interviews, this time it is Chris Molbon for Metropolis that joins him for a chat.

Richard is joined by David Quinn, Dan Loisell and Brent Scothmer to discuss this years ICCC event and what will be different from last years.  Rich also looks at a fantastic fund raising raffle over on Tantive as well as an early look at 'The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker Project'.  With help from attendee Jason, Rich also reviews the recent LFCC event.

Pete introduces his new section, 'License to Thrill', where he looks at one vintage license each month.  This month sees UK show company, Clarks, delved into, but why no shoes from Clarks in the UK during the line?  Baffling!!!

Newest Acquisitions returns without it's natural leader, but the lads take on a shorter section looking at Kenner Lightsabers, John Menzies, Dairylea, beater MOCs and Handmade figures before finishing with their main topic, this month it's the Kenner Death Star, and as always we have The Vintage Alliance drop by to help us out once again, this time we hear from Ron Salvatore.

As well as all this we hear the TVR shenanigans on a recent Star Wars weekender and as usual the quiz.  thanks to grant sharing the back seat of a car with Stuart we also see the return of the song!!!

All this plus much more on this months Vintage Rebellion Podcast.

Enjoy the Show!
