This is an open ended topic as we will return to this in May, so please show us your collections and how you display when you don't have much space, do you have any inventive ways of displaying?All this plus much more.Enjoy the show.We are Generation Skywalker!

Late-breaker ,

A fresh take on Star Wars

It’s hard to stand out in the vast sea of Star Wars podcasts but these guys do. They clearly know their stuff and it’s always nice to spend time in their company as they affably chat about everything from vintage collecting to the latest toy releases. You can tell everything they do is put together with a lot of love.

Great new podcast

I can’t recommend this new podcast with familiar voices enough.
From the great intro, you know that your in for something special.
The “one subject” episodes work really well, as if your not interested in an episode subject the next one won’t be too far away.
Keep up the good work guys...😀
