The Star Wars Collector's Archive Podcast
Are you a fan of Star Wars and Star Wars toys? Your answer better be yes or you're probably in the wrong place...
So assuming you're still reading this, you really need to check out The Star Wars Collector's Archive Podcast, better known as the 'Chive Cast (www.theswca.com/podcast). Each month, co-hosts Skye and Steve bring you more than an hour of news, discussion, and interviews -- all focused on Star Wars and vintage Star Wars collecting.
It's a fun and informative online romp, and Skye, Steve, and their assorted guests explore every nook and cranny of the hobby. Figure variations, different styles of packaging, pre-production notes, hobby history, collecting anecdotes, market discussions -- they drop mad knowledge. Some of the topics can be a little esoteric, but they're always approached in a way that makes them accessible.
The 'Chive Cast celebrated its one-year anniversary in January, and you can dig through all 12 of the show's episodes by visiting the web page. There, you'll also find photos and links that illustrate some of the discussions.
So go check it out. If you're a fan of vintage Star Wars toys, believe me, these are the discussions you're looking for. (Booooooo! Bad Star Wars pun!)
