Re: I didnt know this...

The Han Hoth holster is a good feature but DON’T USE IT!

The plastic is a lot more brittle these days than in the 1980s, and a few of my holsters split from having the gun stored there.

I display with gun in hand now

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

One that always gets to me is that I can spend $100s of dollars for an item online with no issues (via eBay, FaceBook, etc.) but when at an actual toy show, with physical cash in hand (and with the actual item in hand as well), it ALWAYS is much more difficult to justify purchasing said item. Total...

Re: Question On Boxes And Inserts Etc When We Were Kids

Like the rest of you I dont remember any boxes surviving after being opened. Totally different today, the boxes for all my kids toys are in the loft - probably a massive fire risk :?

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

Good question Edd and good answers all. I’ve said it a few times that I do find the money spent on vintage obscene. We are for the most part in jobs with regular incomes and it’s too easy to spend £100s or more on toys, and I’m sure there have been a few past collectors that have got into big debt t...

Re: Show of your truly rare items

My rarest item is probably this transparency for the Han Hoth image on the back of the 41 cards, with 76% sizing information for the printers. Cost a lot more than that beautiful ATST transparency - that was an amazing steal! Yeah, but this one is even cooler as it's a colour transparency. Great it...

As Edd says, repros are frowned upon here. Best leaving it as is

Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

But Argos didn't advertise anything SW related until the Autumn 1979 catalogue and there ain't much in there at all, and then again nothing being advertised at all again until the Autumn 1982 edition which shows just a single page of a handful of ESB toys, maybe this was just an Argos thing and the...

Re: Were you a "one toy line" kid?

Star Wars toys left the most impression but I also had Lego, little plastic soldiers, Matchbox cars, Playmobil. Later on there was some He-man and GI Joe. Never had or cared much for Transformers. I did like MASK but I couldn't have it all. Don't dare starting to collect it now either. I've not see...

Forgot ab...
