'Chive Cast 99 - Rocket Riding Along the Facebook Divide

“The Honesty, which is kindness, that comes across as cruelty.” This episode is about collecting the Biker Scout, but it is also about the pre-Facebook / Post-Facebook collector divide. We talk about the Rocket Rider’s short snout and proofs while also penning an open letter to the unofficial leadership council of the FaceBook collectors. We invite John Alvarez and Joe Yglesias -- the eternally old-and-grumpy Statler and Waldorf of vintage Star Wars -- to share tales of old hobby beefs and how it used to be on Rebelscum. John pipes in to discuss how he built his storied and dismantled Biker Scout run and then Joe helps us to think about where the Scout DNA hides in Vintage bootlegs. Plus FX Master history lessons, VHS ads, Quartz Stop Watches and an improvised MarketWatch on the Gretzky Podcast!
