'Chive Cast 91 - From Squid Face to Squid Man

This month's podcast is dedicated to Jabba's squid-faced barge henchman and Venetian blind enthusiast, Squid Head. Skye gives you the top five reasons this figure is hot as FIRE and Steve breaks down the character's design just before Derek Webster stops by as the Space Freak of the Week (like Raphael Sadiiq). Ron R.A. "Ron-Ron" Salvatore Mundi stops by to ask the greatest unasked question in Vintage Collecting: Why is Hammerhead called Hammerhead? He also shares memories of collecting modern (?!), talks about the weekly "Ad of the Week" on the Archive's Facebook page, discusses his completely updated vintage catalog multipack article from and helps Skye give a damn about Squid Head cape colors including a discussion of the brown and the pink. You'll learn what a soft goods sample is and what isn't a salesman sample. Mike Cooper pops by to discuss Satanism in Star Wars, the unproduced Mongo Beefhead Tribesman, the Mexican Squid Head, an unloved puzzle and plays a high-stakes MarketWatch game. All this plus Obi-Obi-Obi Ozzy on the latest Vintage Pod.
