Re: Warning new repro that is not in the tig guide

What I don't understand is this guy selling a repro Jawa blaster for £24.99 - and you don't even get free postage. And if it gets damaged in the post it is the buyers responsibility too!!

Re: What baffled you most about the toys as a kid?

The Die Cast Twin Cloud Car caused me issues. Were they on the side of the empire or the rebels? It was also the wrong size to fit in with the rest of the toys!

Re: Has Anyone Experienced This With eBay Before?

If it's sitting at the depot, and no one can pick it up won't it get returned to sender after a week or 2?

Bit of a pain in the arse, but can't see how eBay can't side with you

Re: Argos Top Selling toys, last 45 years

Argos Top Selling toys, last 45 years

Was Star Wars really the top selling toy in the UK in 1977?

Re: I didnt know this...

The gun is new one on me (I think I used to do the helmet thing, but had forgotten it)

The gun has always frustrated as it never stays in her hand very well, and my little one has started to use the Boushh figures as target practice for her flying unicorns...

Who do you think I am?!? It's been sitting on my desk for a few days, of course I licked it!
