Sometimes we cannot always use the audio we have recorded for each show, and when James Burns spoke to Gus Lopez about the Collectors Track gifts, available at Star Wars Celebration next month, they had not yet been revealed. The audio in episode 65 of the Star Wars Collectors Cast reflected this, but now with information of the gifts available and questions about the future of ‘Star Tots’, here’s the audio that we couldn’t share with you last week in a very short, and extra episode, of the Star Wars Collectors Cast.

If you’ve still not listened to the full interview with Gus, heard the latest news about Steve Sansweet coming to London for Celebration, all about James’ recent trip to LEGO in Billund & LEGOLAND Windsor with Chris Pearce from Brickset.com, and the latest collectibles available at Walt Disney World with Mark Newbold – then check out Star Wars Collectors Cast: Episode 65 now.
