'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.
