'Chive Cast 57: 2014 Annual 'State of the Hobby' Roundtable
Here we have our second kind-of-annual "State of the Hobby" Roundtable. Skye, Steve, Chris Georgoulias, and Ron Salvatore discuss the Vintage influences and impacts of the new The Force Awakens trailer; fanboys and the importance (or lack thereof) of being a Star Wars fan in collecting Star Wars toys; the relative coolness (or lack thereof) of collecting Vintage; they come up with a kind of definition for "Vintagesploitation"; Skye introduces the UDE Theory, the Beatles Theory, and proposes that collecting Modern prototypes is the new Vintage collecting. Plus there is a vicious knock em out-drag em out battle Deb-8-D-8 between Chris and Skye over the correct pronunciation of Lando's copilot in the Falcon. Finally, there is a new feature that teaches how to speak Star Wars...in Polish.
