'Boring Strikes Back' ...The wait is over as we finally returned at the weekend with our Podcast 'Boring Conversation Anyway' .Top toy experts Dan Curto, Dorksidetoys, Yakface & myself took the best film ever (debate!) and looked at it from a toy perspective... Look out for 'Return of the Jedi' A Toy Commentary soon. Some very rough show notes below.
- probe droid hasbro, sideshow, vintage? Liked the recon on hoth pack
- tauntaun, best one is 3.75” recent vintage collection? http://amzn.to/1LqRDUd 6” is good
- Steady girl! Tauntaun is a girl! Love the 6” wampa http://www.dorksidetoys.com/Star-Wars-Black-Series-6-Deluxe-Case-Pack-Han-Sol-p/hassw98276.htm but could have had the belly easily I think, but always remineded of ‘I want you inside me’ http://underscoopfire.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/tauntaun-comic-blue-milk-special.jpg
- Hoth General has strepsils on his uniform I swear
- Leia padded uniform was a bugger to get in the VC packaging for me...
- We need a good Ord Mantell nonEU story now!
- Love the vintage R2-Persicope packaging just blue background, designer off work that day!
- I always, always wanted the missing wampa sequences http://www.dorksidetoys.com/Star-Wars-Black-Series-6-Deluxe-Case-Pack-Han-Sol-p/hassw98276.htm and ultimately the doorway with threepio tearing the warning sign off in the movie. LEGO made a version.
- 2-1b with legs chopped off http://amzn.to/1GdQSuk always fascinated by the clear body on thje orioginal vintage figure and really one of the first figures to have that, ever I think…
- Have we ever had a Hoth hologram Obi wan?
- Laugh it up fuzzball! Scruffy looking nerfherder
- We’ve done pretty well for imperial officers over the years across lego, kenner and hasbro http://amzn.to/1ezasKE but never enough crew army builders
- Vader, how many! Black Series 6” was a belter I thought now up to $45 per figure http://amzn.to/1K3tPHh I smell repack at one stage/resculpt.
- 20.54 in the movie and 2-1b’s console has a mini shield generator on control panel-just throwing that in there!
- Luke snowspeeder http://amzn.to/1Lb5gZJ
- Han’s Treadwell droid? Never had it!? And of course recent TVC vintage falcon, another super high point for hasbro, best vehicle ever? http://amzn.to/1FtUW80
- Anything finer than vintage AT-AT and AT-ST? http://amzn.to/1ezbgPR real high points for Hasbro
- Rebel radar dishes were huge in recent-ish sets but always loved the old playsets, and this movie gave us a bunch Cloud City Playset (Sears Exclusive)
- Old Armadillo rebel cruiser was an odd toy!
- NEVER EVER enough snowtroopers made, or guns! bring back the vintage accessories and small vehicle mini rigs http://www.starwars.com/news/offscreen-but-not-forgotten-mini-rigs-body-rigs-and-other-kenner-vehicles
- Vintage x-wing of only a year or two ago was a beaut!
- Old vintage accessories of gas masks I loved!
- I guess space slug set just never gonna work, we did get a mynock set.
- 300th darth vader with mediation was a failed but cool idea. So many were discounted.

1. LEGO Wookies
2. Thursday really only Fett & Dutch revealed from Hasbro;
general thoughts on the FETT from all?
http://www.rebelscum.com/2014-SDCC/SDCC-2014-Hasbro-Star-Wars-First-Look/default.asp rebels card design across all-confusing?
3. ‘’Take a look at my gigantic chopper’’ & LEGO minifig display, mini fighter with chopper
LEGO PR cant even get these sets, desperate to get them. Is this fair, wise move for LEGO to have such limited items? Only encourages copies? Panels thoughts.
4. Sideshow 1/6th Scale
Thoughts on hot toys ¼ scale and pushing deeper into Star Wars under license from Hasbro. What do we want to see? Price points?
5. Hot toys are going nuts with product releases, especially y around Iron man. The Scale of collectibles is getting bigger. Way bigger. Hall of armour new sets, The bat, tumblrs (multiples) Jaxx pacific, NECA ¼ scale. Thoughts on bigger collectibles and do customers still want 3.75? or is 6” and above the new hotness?
Can I get a Fabrikation Fett? Part in the USA...
6. Some new podcasts, new channels, new reviews. Instagram, coming from www.dorksidetoys.com
7. Black series 6” revealed on Saturday;
Official images for closeups and comparisons: https://plus.google.com/b/116325231465810007924/photos/116325231465810007924/albums/6040100964822656513 We skip the command line and angry turds.
8. Was HASBRO SW disappointing? Paul?
9. Quick skim over Gentle Giant-Hot wheels: http://www.rebelscum.com/san_diego_comic_con_2014.asp
10. Rebels is looking good. Extended overview trailer ‘A look ahead’’, several others, but this had to be the best; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYkXif5Q2mA
ESB easter eggs, McQuarrie throughout and in? Longer clips with Buck tooth inquisitor:
