Re: What do you regret the most from your time in the hobby?

Very few regrets really, and a few lessons. In the late 90s I got stung buying a Lando General with a Squid Head cape from a toy fair. Cost me £30 when that was a lot of money to me, so I was a lot more careful after that. Couple of pieces that I passed on I regret. A Han Hoth 65 back proof for £135...

Re: End of 2017 Onto 2018

I did all right last year and got my three main targets, a Han Hoth offerless 48 back, a Palitoy die cast X-Wing MOC and a small wing DV TIE on a TIE card I dont plan to add too much this year 1. Some pre-prod die cast would be nice. 2. One or more of the micro collection wampa cave, carbonite set a...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 42 LAUNCHED

I only had a DV TIE, speeder bike and INT-4 and eventually got a second hand Landspeeder. The rich kids up the road had two of everything so never felt I was missing out, always got to play with a spare at at

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 42 LAUNCHED

Been holding back on this one until I had a long drive. Wales and back was just the job. I found Jesse’s interview interesting and scary. A run of 16 for over $100k is serious business. To add to the die cast bomber discussion, the ESB falcon, cruiser and y wing are as rare or perhaps rarer than the...

Re: Full set of loose figures at Sheffield auction

I would have thought more as I'm chasing down the last few to finish my loose collection and doing the calculations i would say a complete set of last 17 would be getting close to £2000 now with pop up R2 at close £300. I had no idea. I still value last 17 as £50 average and all other figures at £1...

Full set of loose figures at Sheffield auction

Went to see these in person this week, and was surprised that they went for £2.5k plus commission (£3k in total). The Lando General was described as having a rare cape variation, which i assumed was repro especially with the grey blaster, and made me suspcious of some of the other weapons. R2's sabr...

Re: MISB Bi Logo INT-4 post purchase question

I wouldnt worry either. The tape on the sealed ones is never yellow in my experience.

The rattling will most likely be the wings rather than the nose cannon, which is in the baggie as Emiel says. The wings are held in by the card insert but there is still some movement if the prop comes away.
