RIP IT OFF THE CARD - complete episodes from the 2021 live Facebook show
There is no denying Star Wars action figures are an industry unto themselves, but what is more popular, the actual action figure or the card it was packaged with? In this episode Aron goes through his recent acquistion of original Star Wars cardbacks to determine their collectability and value. The results may surprise you.
THE ONES WHICH GOT AWAY
Aron and Dags discuss those special moments where they missed out on buying some prized collectables due to circumstances beyond their control. Sadly it's a story every collector will be able to relate to.
TREASURE IN THE SUBURBS
Aron and Dags discuss the issue of being a collector of pop culture merchandise without realising their neighbour may actually be collecting the same thing. Aron in particular discusses (with photos) the collections he's come across in his travels along with a look at how his own collection appeared in his younger years - yes he did in fact attach Dr Who posters to the ceiling of his bedroom!
VIDEO TAPE COLLECTING - PART 1
Aron and Dags discuss the phenomenon of video tape collecting from the 80's and 90's. Not only do they look at some video tapes which even today still command big prices on eBay, but they go through the history of the format along with how it impacted so many people.
COLLECTING MOVIE PROPS WITH DAVE HANKIN
Aron and Dags meet Dave Hankin who has been collecting both genuine and replica movie props for years. Yet not only does Dave have a fantastic collection most movie fans would drool over, but he's also a sculptor and builder too, for this reason whenever Dave wants a movie prop which doesn't exist, he just makes it himself!
VIDEO TAPE COLLECTING - PART 2
Aron and Dags continue the second half of their video collecting discussion where Aron looks in detail at the history of Dr Who home video tape production.
GREAT COLLECTABLE STORES
Aron and Dags look back at a time when collectables were bought from traditional 'bricks and mortar' stores and shops. In particular they reflect upon our favourite haunts - some of which no longer exist - where some of their prized collectables were purchased. It's like a seeing a detailed history of Melbourne through the eyes of pop culture/Sci-Fi collectors!
COLLECTING LEGO SPACE
Aron and Dags look the fantastic and highly collectable Lego series 'Space'. In this presentation we look at the history of Space, the models which were produced and how they stack up today as prized collectables.
COLLECTOR FAIRS AND MARKETS
Aron and Dags take a trip down memory lane remembering the great collector fairs, markets, trash & treasure stalls and even car boot sales where many collectables were purchased and collections thrived.
