Show #30 starts out with a nice conversation with Lillian Skye who talks about her fandom, writing a college paper on the impact of Star Wars, and working for Star Wars Underworld. The Bearded Trio mentions that there will be a new Jurassic World trailer during the Super Bowl. Then the show heads into an interview with Mark Bellomo, the author of The Ultimate Guide to Vintage Star Wars Action Figures, 1977-1985. Mark talks about vintage Kenner Star Wars figures, vehicles and playsets, the challenge of including prices, the difficulty of deciding what to include and what not to include, his choice of narrative and using the Expanded Universe, his previous works and the extent of his collection, as well as his overall passion for Star Wars and collecting. Really a great interview and well worth listening to as I’ve seen his book out there but I didn’t know anything about the author, which always makes me skeptical about picking up the book.
