Re: Home Bargains

yeah I managed to pick up a flame trooper & tie pilot to go with the other imperials I have picked up, I never normally bother with modern, but this latest line of figures have really awesome sculpts & with the lack of articulation I find them marry really well with the vintage figures, they...

Re: WATCH OUT THREAD – ANOTHER FAKE ITEM DISCOVERED

Yes I also voiced my concerns to Dave back at the time of the outing & made it clear I did not think Jeff should be welcomed at FF or other events let alone be allowed to trade at them, as mentioned above he was still allowed but we were assured he would not be allowed to sell baggies or baggie ...
