The SWCA Podcast 49: Dengar and the Mystery of the Woodchuck's Cave

This month’s podcast comes a little late and at just the right time as we discuss Dengar, review Plastic Galaxy, talk about a newish dental website, talk about some found first shots and have Ron Salvatore explain Carbalon. Then its Story Time wherein we here the tale entitled “The Mystery of the Woodchuck’s Cave” and learn how Ron, Todd and “Fluffy” uncovered the Micro Collection molds nearly 15 years ago in Cincinnati.

'Chive Cast 47: Minch the Grinch (Yoda)

\'Chive Cast 47: Minch the Grinch (Yoda)

Come and get “Thurned” on this month’s ironically long chive cast featuring Yoda Collector, Martin Thurn. He talks to us about the Star Wars Collectors’ Bible, the first SW collector magazine that he edited and several little known areas of collecting such as license plates and gift cards. Skye also interviews Mattias and gets to the bottom of the ToyToni scandal. All this plus the meaning of Minch and Princess Leia having “congress” with an alien and a mummy on the 47th Vintage Pod.

The SWCA Podcast 46: The One with the Rick Springfield Interview

The Rick Springfield Interview!

Forget the Palitoy blues for awhile and listen to Skye’s interview with Star Wars Celebrity Super Collector Rick Springfield on the latest ‘Chive Cast. We talk about his custom made Vader, Sandcrawlers on the rack, Head Man, Mr. D and MUCH more.

Some Palitoy Images to Contemplate

If you are following the vintage hobby you have probably heard about the huge Palitoy conspiracy that maybe thousands of cardbacks and figures are fake.

Here is a gallery of the examples that I have of post 45 B Palitoy Chewbaccas that are in question.

45 C
65 D
Unused 65 D Cardback
65 D Miscard with Vader (and inked)
65 D Miscard with Madine

None of these came directly from ToyToni, though I assume that the 65 D and the 65 D Cardback came from him. I have a German that came directly from him, but it does not seem necessary to post.

So, do you see any tell tale signs of malfeasance?

'Chive Cast 45: The Strike Breaking Security Guard

\'Chive Cast 45: The Strike Breaking Security Guard

This months ‘Chive Cast starts with an earth shattering announcement. Then, we invite our guest editors, the Archivist Tommy Garey and the Holy Ghost Ron Salvatore, to sit at the Space Chess Roundtable.

They help us discuss the so-called “ most useless figure ever” Asian Security Guard.“ We also somehow wind up talking about Northern Renaissance wood carving; Sienese art; Tommy gives a vocab lesson on RASSCV, Ron tells us of a tale of a trip to a Kenner sculptor’s place; unloved signs of unknown origin; the hidden labor relations on Cloud city; a totally known production nugget. We also feature the return of Kenner Commercial theater. and have several Skye-Kus and Jenk-us.

Finally, Mike Ritter talks about the Rancho Obi-Wan visit. There is somehow even more on this months mega Vintage Pod.
