They’ve finally done it… James Burns and Dan Curto have reached a milestone in recording and releasing their 50th show together.

Join them on the Star Wars Collectors Cast for a very special anniversary show with some gifts for their listeners in the form of the ultimate fan boy Kyle Newman, who discusses his latest film along with his current collecting habits and his opinion on Episode VII and beyond. Greg Crafts from Gentle Giant joins them to discuss San Diego Comic-Con and what Star Wars exclusives they’ll have available at the show. Ashley Eckstein drops in for a quick chat to talk about Her Universe at Star Wars Weekends, the R2-D2 ‘My Hero’ Jewelry Collection, San Diego Comic-Con and they ask if she’s missing Ahsoka. Finally, the Collectors Cast wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Rancho Obi-Wan to catch up with Steve Sansweet. All this, wrapped up and tied with a bow – their gift to you to celebrate their 50th show.
