Re: Vectis 26th September

I got extra pics on the Han and the bubble is completely smashed on top, much worse than the face on pics looks, I’m not sure whether the figure could come out on it’s own but it’s very close to being able to. Like said earlier, it’s really just a cardback and attached bubble, and a loose figure for...

Re: Should grading companies archive/case reproductions?

The funniest part of the whole mess is that someone at CAS actually believed the story that the person submitting the cards was doing it so they could give them to their Mum to remind her of his childhood (or whatever the exact story was), and they’d never see the light of day again. Next thing they...

Re: The day is coming....repro MOC

Hi all, I know this has been discussed before but i was just having a little delve into it. I just wanted to do a wee test over the past few weeks and i bought one of these kits from Mr Poon as i was buying something from him anyway: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Star-Wars-Palitoy-12-Back-Stormt...

Re: This is very sad - Ahmed Best

He’s probably fortunate that it was 20years ago and way before social media made all our lives happier places. He was spared the treatment more recent acting disasters have had to endure. Most actors don’t have the luxury of turning down gigs even if they don’t like the scripts.

Re: General Grumbling

Being critised for using a dealer to buy or sell stuff, surely collectors should be free to buy and sell as they wish. Most collectors would prefer to not waste the %age commission you loose on both ends for themselves I’d imagine, plus the fun side of hunting down items, making friends along the w...

Re: And This Is Why I Hate Toxic "Fan" Boys and Their Bitching!

I think this is a misrepresentation. Iron Man was great... Iron Man 2 and 3 were far from it. Thor Ragnarok was a fun film, the other two Thors were woeful. There is no consistency of quality at Marvel. This applies to all franchises... we can all think of movies which are brilliant but others that...

Re: When does collecting move from mainstream to niche, who decides it and how?

It’s not mainstream now and never has been. Talk to 100 people about it and you’d be lucky if any more then a couple will know anything more than the blindingly obvious.

What do you do when collecting gets boring?

Re: Please delete thread

Ok fair enough guys, I wasn’t particularly meaning people on here, the proper idiots are mainly on FB derailing all manner of topics by bringing it back to their issues with TLJ. In the past couple of days alone I’ve seen threads about SWCCG, Hasbro toys, Lego and a cosplayer thread derailed by cran...

Re: Please delete thread

The funniest thing about the whole TLJ mess is that there are people out there who truly believe that Disney Execs spend their days trawling through the countless comments decrying how terrible TLJ wa and worry about what crank fans think. Newsflash : they don’t. Bottom line ££ and focus groups are ...

Re: Is Kenner worth more than Palitoy?

I think the prices of Kenner stuff has risen a lot over the last couple of years, where as Palitoy was high to start with but hasn't really moved. A lot of the logo Palitoy stuff hasn't changed much in a decade, I watched a few items end on eBay last night that went surprisingly low. There’s a lot ...

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? SPOILERS

His shattered body was dumped amid the refuse of the junk planet Lotho Minor, where the once deadly warrior fell into madness, staying alive on a diet of vermin. How does that work then? Surely if he ate something it’d just flop straight out of the bit of space where his stomach used to be? It’d be...

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? SPOILERS

Agree the Darth Maul bit was wrong, he couldn’t have been there. He died when Anakin was 9, which was just before Han was born. How could he be there 20 years later? Er, no :? Andy, it fits in perfectly with the timeline. He was put back together again on The Clone Wars, hence the metal legs. He al...
