    Ten years ago, the Star Wars universe changed forever. On October 30, 2012, George Lucas, the master storyteller who spoke the Jedi and lightsabers into existence, sold his company to Bob Iger and Disney for $4 billion. And since then, Star Wars has expanded wildly. The sequel trilogy concluded the onscreen Skywalker Saga. The world of Batuu emerged at the Disney theme parks. And beloved characters like the Mandalorian and Grogu graced our television screens. But how did the deal between Lucasfilm and Disney happen? Join host David Quinn for a look at the deal to bring Star Wars to Disney: why Lucas decided to part with the company he spent his life creating, why Disney wanted to add it to its impressive collection of intellectual properties, and why Episode Seven was created without its original master.

    “Will you return to play Obi-Wan again?” That was the question that plagued Ewan McGregor for years, as Lucasfilm began to release Star Wars films in the Disney era. Fans clamored to see McGregor don the Jedi Robes again, and to portray the beloved character from George Lucas' prequel trilogy. Behind the scenes, Lucasfilm had been working on a standalone Kenobi film, similar to 2016's Rogue One and 2018's SOLO. And over time, that idea for a film morphed into an offering for the small screen: the recently released Obi-Wan Kenobi series, on the Disney+ streaming service. This is the fascinating story behind that transition. Join host David Quinn as he explores some of the earliest rumors and rumblings, the exciting film announcement in 2017, and the reason behind the shift to a miniseries in 2019, capped off by the return of the Jedi Master, seventeen years later after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

    In The Vintage Collection Archive, authors Rich Alot, D. Martin Myatt, and former Hasbro VP Derryl DePriest crafted the definitive guide for the line: carefully curated and setting a new standard for a Star Wars collector resource. The writing is superb, the commentary by the Hasbro team is insightful, and the images are truly striking. But it's greatest secret? The behind-the-scenes information that spills from every one of the more than 350 gorgeous pages. Which figure did George Lucas and Dave Filoni play a part in designing? Which Kenner mistakes were purposefully included in the updated Hasbro cardback art? And what did Hasbro do to continue the line, after the company exceeded its tooling budget during the first year? In covering Hasbro's The Vintage Collection action figure line, the book delves into the stories behind the figures, playsets, and vehicles, but it also shines a light on the Kenner toys on which much of the iconic packaging, art and designs are based. Join host David Quinn as he explores The Vintage Collection Archive Edition and shares some fascinating facts about the history of The Vintage Collection, the modern lines and the Kenner figures that started it all.

The Empire State Club has hosted both local meetups and larger, international-themed weekends. It has played a role at conventions like Star Wars Celebration, and in recent years, created its own collector-themed event: The Annual.

    A $4,000 carded Bespin Luke? If you're a collector, you know how desirable the collectibles from the first Star Wars film have become over the past two years. But The Empire Strikes Back is the rare sequel that is just as beloved and just as impactful as the first film, if not more so.

Luke Bespin, Leia Bespin, Lando Calrissian, Yoda, Han Hoth, IG-88, Snowtrooper - these are some of the iconic characters introduced in the Kenner line in 1980.

Through HasLab, figures, vehicles and playsets that were considered too costly to produce or too large to sell at retail became possibilities through Hasbro's crowdfunded-based campaigns.

    The latest Hake's auction brought in an incredible $3.3 million, and the Star Wars section of the catalog offered collectors items from 1977-1985, covering Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Power of the Force and DROIDS. And auctions like this help to give collectors an idea of the current market - which items are white-hot, as well as the trends in the world of Star Wars collectibles. Join host David Quinn for a conversation with collector Matt George about the results from Hake's Auction #233, with a focus on the 25 top-selling Star Wars items in the catalog. David and Matt explore the soaring prices of carded figures, how the Boba Fett collectibles performed leading up to the new series, the difference an 85 grade makes, and the inclusion of modern Hasbro items as a sign of things to come!

    You may be familiar with Darth Vader's shocking reveal, but do you know the whole story? For more than forty years, moviegoers and Star Wars fans have reacted to one of cinema's greatest reveals of all time: five simple words that never made it into a script, but changed Lucas' saga and movie-making forever. And yet, two years before the film's release, Darth Vader actor Dave Prowse seemingly announced the reveal to the general public. How can this possibly be? Join host David Quinn for a fascinating, in-depth look into the reveal — how it was created and composed, whether it had truly remained a secret, the group that knew about it before the film's release, what Dave Prowse actually knew, and how it was received by audiences in 1980.
