Re: Latest Acquisitions (Autograph) Thread

Hope this is OK to share here, not a new addition, but feels like it today after taking this out of storage for a look and to take some photos.
My favaourite autograph related item, 3x5 index card Darth Vader cast and crew.

Thanks again.

Re: Do these sabres look ok?

Just had a look at marsking completed listings, and the version 3 is this repro. You can see the texture in his photos, and the tip area defect. Marsking photos below marsking.jpg marsking1.jpg For some reason TIG still has this listed as Version 3, but needs to be updated This textured saber has ne...

Re: Do these sabres look ok?

Just a heads up guys, the UV light test is a cool little trick, but does not help with repro from original. Originals will glow, SAME as some repros will glow under UV. If your flat tip Luke saber (the one on the top in photo) has a texture to it then it is more than likely a repro, sorry to say. Th...

Re: Coin Offer Cardbacks

Some rare cases you can also find them on esb card backs too. They are not as easy to find but are present on the main charecters too. The Kellerman book has a picture or two of coin offer stickers on Star Wars logo cards. They must be like hens teeth though I had seen the R2 SW card with the coin ...

Re: Coin Offer Cardbacks

Great photo Oscar! I also have an ESB 45 back with a Coin offer and a lead on a POTF Vader with a Coin sticker. Haven't managed to get the POTF in the focus yet, but there are two other variations to add to the list. I love the fact that there are POTF cards with this offer. My favourite is Boba Fe...

Re: Improved Image Uploading For Mobiles!

Glad this got a bump today, just saw this, and used it for first time,

Re: Coin Offer Cardbacks

Just about any character on rotj cardback will have coin offer stickers, you will find them with patience It would depend on what excess stock was on the shelves at the time the shop workers apllied the stickers to the cards Some rare cases you can also find them on esb card backs too. They are not ...

Re: Farmboy saber

No problem,
unfortunately these round tip repros really are a perfect match in every way, and you have to go to some extra lengths to distinguish the 2 apart.

Re: Farmboy saber

Does it have a definitive mold seem all the way around the saber, and can you feel the seem when you run your finger across the seem? Does it have any excess flashing, even a small amount. The good thing I can see with yours is that it sinks when you tapped it down, the repros which are a perfect ma...

Re: Farmboy saber

Float test is not 100% valid with lightsabers, it helps as a starting point, but you cant distinguish real from repro lightsabers based on the float test alone. Depending on the lightsaber type, flat tips, round tips, repros, they all perform differently depending on the type of saber. Your descript...
