The Rantcor Pit 10: The Kenner Years

Note: Due to a variety of circumstances that have weighed on the schedules of many JCU producers and hosts, this edition of The Rantcor Pit ran late and is posting on a Wednesday rather than a Friday.  It is standing in for this week's Hey Kids, Comics! which has been postponed until next Wednesday. - Jedicole. 

Star Wars action figures and toys are very much a part of the whole Star Wars experience for fans of all ages.  That is certainly true for your hosts Cole "JediCole" Houston and Eddie Medina.  Both were around back in the days when Star Wars toys were knew and the collectibles juggernaut that the Saga would become was still in its infancy.

This week, special guest Vic Medina (yep, Eddie's brother) joins the show for a lively discussion of "the good old days" and the original Kenner action figure line.  From the thrill of the hunt to the various challenges of finding your favorite toys when there was no internet and few resources apart from walking into a various stores and scouring the pegs.
