Re: Is this Threepio Palitoy 12 back card legit or not

Looking at the hole punch area it looks all good to me and the bubble must have not been attached right at the factory for the bubble to come off so cleanly. i do have a Palitoy 20 back Walrus Man that was a bubble fail so it could have happened to a 12 back. Maybe TT did get some of these card back...

Re: 30 back Lando Moc

Nice one Carl :D

The only thing that made me wonder was the top right corner of the bubble seal as it was hard to know for sure that it was ok from the sellers pictures. I'm sure it's all good though with it hand and great price for a 30 back.

Re: Palitoy Death Star

I've finally had a look at this listing and I do think the price is really high for the condition. The play set itself isn't mint with a damaged Trash Compactor door and crack in the canopy and also the box looks a bit shabby to me, even though it's in ok shape I struggle to see how it ended so high...

30 back Lando Moc

Just noticed this sale from a while ago (sorry if it was mentioned before), and thought it was a good price even with the crack and yellowing - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Star-Wars-Palitoy-30-Back-Lando-Calrissian-Beautiful-Example-Scarce-/302972481187?hash=item468a912ea3%3Ag%3A1QoAAOSwYIpb-...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Three new arrivals for me this week - big thanks to Andy Clarke for the heads up on the Han with trilogo bubble, and to Jez for the patches all the way from Afghanistan which will be given away at a future event! And then finally meet Jasper, who was born on Monday :) 040E9707-4E7C-4312-8905-DAD0F2...

Re: Buying in the 80's how we used to buy figures

I love stories like these. I was born in '68, so was more than ready when the toys arrived 10 years later. We had a tiny toyshop in my home town and it had a very small Star Wars section, most days it was the same figures - Luke, Leia, Ben, Chewie and Artoo. Sometimes Han would show up along with T...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 9, 2019, Part 1/2

Now this thread is just going to make me jealous :cry:

Great example though and I know it went to a good home but it's one of very few things that I's like to add to my collection one day. Looking forward to seeing if anyone else has one to show.

Re: Last Jedi lp

That is some great artwork and I didn't realize they still made vinyl for these releases (although I do know there's a big vinyl soundtrack scene so it makes sense). I have a few recent horror vinyl releases like Creepshow and Halloween 3 and they make some amazing packaging for these so it's nice t...

Re: New stuff

That Skiff is the one thing that's really caught my eye although I have the other version of this from a while ago (came with a Luke), which I think was taken from the POTF skiff mold. This Skiff looks very similar to me other than the colour, does anyone know if this one is also taken from the vin...

Re: The LEGO Corner

I'm not so sold on the mini figs for this set or house even though I thought i was a nice idea. I don't think they pulled it off as well as they could have but it'll be interesting to see how it sells.

Re: New retroline.......

Is it just me or is the colour on grand moff tarkin's uniform wrong ? :? Yes, it’s too light. Should be a darker grey slate colour. Another example of poor attention to detail. The figure doesn’t look “retro” or vintage looking at all. I thought that too. The colour scheme looks similar to other vi...

Re: Do all 12 Back Chewie's have a Green Bowcaster?

Nice close ups but it looks like the hand is covering the part you need to see if it's flat or not :lol:

Typical when you want to see it but maybe there's a giveaway as to which version crossbow it is.
