Nicely done and as Lee said these Tri Logos are a bit tougher to fix up so top marks!

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 3, 2019, Part 2/2

This is the one vintage thing that I would still love to own. I'm a bit priced out of it now a days but at least I have the modern version that's as close as can be to the real thing. Oh and I probably shouldn't have passed on the near complete one for $40 I came across about 5 years ago, I didn't k...

Re: Forum Giveaway ... NEW CLUE: ROTJ

Well there's one big list of choices out there but I'm going to go for Sand People (as they're oddly named on the card back!?).

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 3, 2019, Part 1/2

Here's my complete opened one. I picked this up in the States a few years ago and came with a set of sealed figures (there are a few opened figures in there as well for when I displayed it). I really do love these Micro sets and I'm glad I have all 3 world sets as well as all the sealed and opened s...

Re: Items you now regret selling?

Not really regretted selling anything Star Wars, but I do really regret selling my Mattel Landram form the Galactica line. I bought mine MIB complete in a mint box in the early days of ebay for practically nothing, $50 or so and it was rare back then. I'd be looking at thousands now to replace it f...

Re: So'Wester's Curry Meet: The Sequel: Brizzle, 9th Feb

That sounds like a plan and I'll have a look what's around by small street to see if I have any ideas. I haven't drank on Corn Street (which is next to small St), for years so things have changed I'm sure but I'll check in with my mates to see what they think.

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

Great graded example even with the chip but I'm also surprised at the grade. Also isn't it a bit odd that AFA won't disclose any grading info?! They know these things change hands so why on earth would they not let you know, maybe there aren't any notes when they grade but didn't want to admit it. :...

That is a great example Andy and I'll try to put a picture of mine up once I find where I've put all of his clothes :lol:

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

Good to see your R2s chaps - how does the saber differ from the regular one? From what I can remember the shade of green differs slightly and maybe the length (although I'm not so sure about that). Hopefully someone can fill us in a bit more but I do remember seeing a comparison at some point altho...

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

Found my loose one :D

It's not mint and I display him with a regular pop up lightsaber as the one he came with was a little chewed and missing part of the handle. Still, for £50 he'll do!

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

Here's my Driods R2 moc. This was the second one I bought as I had an AFA 85 one originally to go along with my 85 Droids C-3PO but this one came up which was in the same condition but had a less yellowed bubble. I had a spare AFA case that I'd cracked open to put this one in so that the cases would...
