S2 - Ep 28: CELEBRATING STARLOG MAGAZINES FROM THE 1970's

Throughout the 20th century magazines were the paper equivalent of the Internet today.

S2 - Ep 17: JAMES BOND MOVIE POSTERS -1970's

 

Nothing is more 'cool' than seeing Roger Moore's 007 plugging some bad guys, getting the girl and saving the world from some dastardly plot!

So join us as we look at the fantastic Bond imagery which dominated the 1970's!

S2 - Ep 15: ICONIC FILM AND TV CARS AND THEIR COLLECTABLES (part 2)

 

When it comes to famous films and TV shows, one of the most popular aspects is often the car which can sometimes steal the show. Now whether it be an 'off the shelf' vehicle or something custom made fans just love their cars. In this episode we continue to look at these wheeled marvels and the collectables which inspired them!

S2 - Ep 14: 40 YEARS OF STAR WARS MERCHANDISE

For Star Wars fans the 4th of May is THEIR day. It's a time when wearing a Jedi costume, wielding a lightsabre, or putting those worn out DVDs and Blu-Ray disks in the player for yet another viewing is the 'must do' activity for the day. But what of the collectables - all forty plus years of them! In this May 4th special, we not only look at decades of great merchandise, but we also share some of our favourite moments of the franchise.

S2 - Ep 13: ICONIC FILM AND TV CARS AND THEIR COLLECTABLES (part 1)

Without a doubt when it comes to famous films and TV shows, one of the most popular aspects is often the old horseless carriage! Yep the car.

In this episode we not only look at these wheeled marvels, but also the collectables which inspired them!

S2 - Ep 12: THE MARVEL COMICS WHICH INSPIRED THE MCU

It seems that each week a new Marvel film is being released which then prompts the question "where do all the stories come from?" Well the answer is easy, comic books! For many decades Marvel comics have kept eager readers enthralled with the adventures of their ever popular super heroes and super villains. But what of the comics themselves? What are they worth, where can they be found, and just how collectable are they?

S2 - Ep 11: THE PHANTOM MENACE MERCHANDISE (part 2)

In this episode we continue to look at the massive amount of merchandise produced for the film which in a few months went from being the most sought after collectables in the world to landfill!

S2 - Ep 10: THE PHANTOM MENACE MERCHANDISE (part 1)

In the history of pop culture collectables, nothing sends shivers down the spines of manufacturers more than the name 'Episode 1'. In 1999 with the upcoming release of the first Star Wars film in 16 years, anyone who could afford to produce collectables felt the massive anticipation of enormous cash sales and expansive revenue. But all that changed after May 25 when those dreams were crushed under the weight of merchandise no one wanted.

S2 - Ep 7: CLASSIC SCI-FI MOVIE POSTERS

It's time to go back, way back long before the Internet, video tapes and when even TV itself was a novelty! We're talking about the golden age of Sci-Fi in the 1950's where a new movie release relied heavily on the poster artwork adorning cinema foyers which today are now highly sought after - and valuable - collectables.

S2 - Ep 6: THE BATMAN (2022 FILM) MERCHANDISE

It's new, it's hot and it has 'great collectables' written all over it. The Batman is the latest live-action incarnation of the Caped Crusader and aside from being a massively successful movie, what merchandise has been released for it and will it be as successful as the film it's supporting!

S2 - Ep 5: PROTOTYPE AND UNPRODUCED STAR WARS TOYS

There's no doubt pop culture collectors love their toys, whether they be action figures, playsets or fancy vehicles! But what about the ones which never got produced - perhaps going no further than the prototype stage? In this episode we look at those great toys which, for whatever reason, never made it to the store shelves and into our collections (BYO rocket firing Boba Fett).

S2 - Ep 4: JAMES BOND MOVIE POSTERS - 1960s

Nothing is more 'cool' than seeing 007 plugging some bad guys, getting the girl and saving the world from some dastardly plot! But before the advent of the Internet, how were these movies sold to an eager audience arriving at the cinema? Movie posters!
