\'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.
This month Skye and Steve talk about the Radar Boy Rebel Soldier with his biggest fan, Broc Walker. We react to Rancho’s renewed reign, uncirculated glue, we talk about Gentle Giants continued awesomeness, we learn “Repro-10” hard copies, and we contemplate how to make a Womans Day Hoth set with “Personnel launcher.” We also have a new debate about un-american toys and a market watch with POTF and Rebel Soldiers.

\'Chive Cast 43: Lousy Late Summer Show
This month is a totally different and completely polyvocal podcast. There is no figure or collectible at the center of this show. Rather, it is about two amazing Collector Events from the summer. We went to Germany and Seattle and all you got was this lousy podcast!
First, Skye and Steve talk about their sojourn in Seattle for the International Collectors Event. They conduct interviews in the “Stitch Studio” from the heart of the Bobacabana and talk about the absolutely amazing meeting of friends and collector colleagues.
Then, Chris Georgoulias takes us to Essen Germany to the “room sales” from Celebration Europe 2. We get a lot of international input and “Wampa! Wampa!” cheers from Germans, Brits, Swedes, Danes, Spaniards, Frenchmen, Mexicans, Americans, Canadians and a disguised Australian.
Come with us as we take you there on this months ‘Chive Cast Vintage Pod!
The SWCA Podcast 42: Snowtroopers in July
This month’s upbeat ‘Chive Cast features interviews with Snowtrooper expert Michael Mensinger and the benevolent grump of the hobby, John Alvarez. Steve says the dorkiest thing he has ever said, Skye opens up and rambles on and we get positively sacrilegious at one point.
We talk celebrations and collector clubs, mini-rig mock ups, 30,000 dollar 12 backs and R2 and 3P_ offer to help you with your hygiene and tell you how to stay away from bad habits. You will learn about YPS and why Blue Stars has yellow eyes. All this plus a bonus Skye-Ku on this month’s Chive Cast!
Please post your justification in the comment thread.

We chat about unproduced mock-ups, Presto Magix and unveil the new “Kenner Commercial Theater” feature. Plus lots of fun, appropriate and inappropriate stories about Grails under a dollar and Men of Steel. Our market watch features many international items over 5 grand and Skye somehow just learns about the existence of PDT-8. All this and way, way less on the star wars collectors archive podcast.

Its a loosey goosey Vintage Pod as Skye and Steve are joined by black velvet artist, tattoo artist, and Leia enthusiast Bruce White. We talk all about Leia and her Milan-ready Bespin Gown; unloved puffy stickers; and nugget fashion drawings. We talk about the “earlyretiree” auctions and the Plastic Galaxy movement.
We also unveil a new exciting art project and some more polls.
Finally, Skye also gets a little too creative at times with his post-production in order to compensate for his relative lack of work in pre-production.
