Re: SWFUK History

My story is much the same as Snaggle's. I joined SWF back on the original site and for a time was a semi-regular poster I guess. I still check the site most days of the week, but obviously have been mainly lurking for the past few years (Rebelscum too). Its been interesting watching the site develop...

Re: Craignwo4life AKA Craig McIntosh

I remember Craig as being one of the regulars when I first found this site. He seemed like a really nice guy. Saddened to hear this news. RIP

Re: OT: Gary Smith in hospital

Very sad to hear this. I don't know Gary personally either, but I've been aware of his tremendous collection and high-standing in the collecting community for several years. All the best for a speedy recovery - and I hope the deadbeats responsible get all that they deserve.

Re: Who here collects Bootlegs?

Thanks for that insight John - sorry I didn't pay full attention to what Joe had written previously. There's no chance I'll ever be going down the road of hunting for any, even relatively rare carded bootlegs - but it's interesting to learn a little about them. Cheers

Re: Who here collects Bootlegs?

[/quote] Joe, that's probably the most impressive picture I've seen on any SW forum! 8) 8) 8) Kudos to you![/quote] I agree with Weasel. Truly amazing. I've never really thought about collecting any bootlegs before, but that's a pretty inspirational photo. I shudder to think of the years of hard wor...

Re: Q about ESB

Re: Collection for sale mentioned on BBC

Yeah, just saw the video finally. Mostly just costumes, replicas, few life-size stormtroopers. Nothing outrageously special that I could see... I'd be interested to see what else he had, and what he manages to get for the lot. Not bad publicity for him tho to get a vid on the beeb.

Re: Should Han Duo be banned from the forum?

I remember the incident last year and the threads regarding it on here and on RS. Pretty low stuff. Sorry to hear about your loss James. My vote has been cast.
