Re: Latest Acquisitions

I haven't added a figure to my loose vintage collection for a long time. Here's a recently acquired Takara alternate sculpt C-3PO partnered up with my wind-up R2-D2. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4888/44951702265_4c7da93760_c.jpg That's a lovely set of droids you have there. Two that I would love i...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Thoughts. Recent win on eBay. Paid 1/10th what a complete one sold for on SWFUK a little while ago, so saw this is a bargain and only way I’ll ever afford one. The seller had attached a printed nameplate so it displays a little better, but I personally don’t like that. My idea is to either display ...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 45, 2018, Part 1/2

Nice Canadian card back and figure Lars, as mentioned earlier these were pretty cheap to pick up for years on both cards but now seem to cost a lot more (like everything vintage). I also have a Kenner Droids R2 and used to have an 85 one but the bellow was more yellow so I kept hold of the ungraded ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Call me crazy, but I recently got my hands on this 1950's swivel top vacuum and it still works like a champ even though it's over 60 years old. (Insert rant about how they don't make stuff like they used to). I'm sure my fellow geeks know exactly where this comes from. For those that don't know yet...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 45, 2018, Part 1/2

Here's my C-3PO I picked up years ago. I do really like the 2 droids from this series so picked up both of them and also have a loss droids R2 but no loose C-3PO. It's amazing how much the loose C-3PO goes for now, it's almost the same as a moc last time I looked.

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 53 LAUNCHED

Another classy edition from the forum boys and as so many have mentioned it's a shame to hear Simon will no longer be a regular but hopefully he'll get the chance to drop in every now and then. I really enjoyed the David Phillips interview and have a couple of old friends who also work at Weta so it...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 44, 2018, Part 1/2

Thanks for all the kind words guys. When I was working away in the US recently I had access to an RP machine so it's just a shame I never got to scan the original clips and and gunner seat with cockpit as I would have been able to print these parts off to scale (including the garbage chute). maybe ...

Is this micro enough for you guys (I made it from post-it's years ago)? :D Ian cool little death star you have made ian, how did you make it ? :shock: Thanks for the comment Lars.

No worries Taff, I'll see if anyone else has any thoughts but I think you're prices were about right for on here.

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 44, 2018, Part 1/2

Excellent stuff, Ian. It's a nice toy and (perhaps I shouldn't be, but!) I'm surprised at how similar certain elements of it are to Kenner's 4" scale Death Star. It's also not every collection that has one (mine certainly doesn't), so well done for having one and many thanks for sharing it wit...

Re: VOTC prices?

Hi all, I have a sealed Luke, Leia, Han, Ben and Sand People from the VOTC series and wondered if anyone has any thoughts of the prices for these? They all have their original clamshells although the Sand People one has a dent in it (but not the moc). Any thoughts appreciated. Ian Just started down...
