Re: Pbp baggie question

The only pbp figures in baggies that come to mind are the dark armour dengar and light green walrus man figure which was a pbp manufactured figure produced for the French market, these both came in clear no coo euro baggies, the dengar is also found with the free sample red sticker offer. Pbp fett/t...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 8 Star Wars Figures for 99p Pack Research Findings

Reading through Kevin’s exchange with the ex woolies employee (interesting stuff btw) would seem he pretty much comfirms that the packs were not put together by Woolworths and imo strengthens the fact they were indeed assembled by Palitoy “For what it's worth, virtually none of the toys sold in the ...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

It’s looking like that receipt is clearly all kinds of wrong which leads me to a number of scenarios 1. The old woman who is conveniently dead and happens to be from Reading decided to put a modern receipt in her massive collection of woolies pack for reasons unbeknown, possibly even coming back fro...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Just noted that the receipt in the pack also has the part about statutory rights which the older ones didn’t and would imagine that was because of an amendment in the consumer act

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

After having a close look at those receipts that mr-shifter posted I would have to say that I agree with what he is saying, you can see that the older ones from the 80s and even 90s are inkeeping with that period, and the one in the bag matches the one shown from 2003 with the terms and condition wh...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Seems to be some good investigation going on here so let’s keep it up in the hope it leads somewhere, despite jeffs past shenanigans I think the best thing to do here is to look at this from an unbiased angle

Some better quality pics of the receipt in that pack would be great

If that’s true that’s a nice bit investigating mr-shifter (sorry don’t know your name) :wink:

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

So basically Frank while you were in regular contact with Jeff and on good terms he pretty much failed to tell you about his epic (this is holy grail stuff to a uk baggie collector) loft find of a box full of sealed Woolworths 8 packs that he had been sat on since 2001? Why would some old lady have ...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

I know frank and Jeff were at one time friendly and as documented by frank exchanged a lot of info with each other regarding baggies etc via email......that is one hell of a find and if he has had them since 2001 surly he would of mentioned that to frank in the past? It just seems really convenient ...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Lol Reading

1986 sounds correct to me as my sister got me one on Boxing Day that year, only reason I remember is because it’s the nicest thing she ever did for me, pretty sure she went back to beating me up the next day :lol:
