Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

The Chris Fawcett interview was eye opening in regards to the early day scam, and for once :wink: I can see Richard’s point of view in that the scamer was very clever in how he presented the items for sale...but he is still a scum bag scammer! Ren Hoeck is a great story, I notice Chris mentioned th...

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Someone's just posted another one for 100k on Facebook. These "holy grails" seem to come up for sale every week! If there are 80+ of them, I can think of many rarer production pieces that sell for 1/100th of the price. Rich fools and their money...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

Oh yes I forgot to mention the Dagobah discussion - I had no idea there were multiple releases of it with different accessories and box designs, even if minor.

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

That's great, it's nice to hear from somebody that isn't part of the community we all know. It's easy to forget Star Wars is much bigger than the circles we associate with.

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

Just finished, really enjoyed the David Phillips interview, sounds like a top bloke. I don't remember seeing him in any groups or forums though, and I noticed he only has one mutual friend on Facebook (Grant.) Is he one of these 'blackhole' collectors?

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Why does someone need to go through a broker for this type of item? I don't get this either. It's 2018, sell it yourself. I can kind of understand why people pay a premium for buying from people like Tom Derby, who have incredible knowledge which adds credibility to pieces when they authenticate th...

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Nuts. The things aren't even rare, aren't there like 50 of them? And please don't say it's the only AFA 90 or you'll get a punch in the nose :lol:

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

About half way through now, enjoying it so far. Sorry to hear Si is stepping back, I didn't realise he had become a full-time Drew Pritchard, I must admit I am slightly jealous! I would love to do that one day. Interesting conversation around negativity in the hobby at the moment. A few months ago n...

Re: EPISODE IX - CAST NEWS

Is this the next film to be released? No spin-offs in the mean time?

You think it has put people off? It definitely got a marmite reception, TFA was much more widely praised.

That was my first thought too, they actually look "too good to be true," but apparently they check out and are being backed up by the likes of Ron Salvatore.

Palitoy Prototypes!

Some Palitoy prototypes have apparently turned up, including a very cool alternate sculpt Luke Jedi. Unfortunately the video is on Facebook so I can't share it here, but they are on display at this exhibition:

Re: If anyone still needs convincing where the bargains are.......

So it sounds like people have differing opinion / experiences using different selling platforms. Both FB and ebay have good and bad deals. I think browsing both platforms is the sensible option. Exactly. There is no right place to buy, you need to look everywhere for good deals (including real life...
