Re: End of 2018 Collecting Review, 2019 goals

My usual goal is always to get what Palitoy MOC I can find to complete character run and add any miscards to my collection that I can. Managed a few Palitoy in 2018, including one that completed a character run - Leia Bespin No miscards this year sadly. For 2019 it would be nice to complete a few mo...

Re: What got you back into collecting?

For me it was initially finding and reading non-stop the Heir to the Empire book in 1992. That re-awoke my obsession/passion for Star Wars - and luckily I had kept al my childhood toys. Later that same year my then girlfriend bought me a handful of imperial figures she found at a carboot sale and fr...

Re: Dumb Question - Palitoy vs Kenner

I remember when I was a kid that all my figures were Palitoys until right near the end (when we seemed to get flooded with Kenner stuff). One of the things that stood out as a kid was that Kenner stuff seemed to be of worse quality. I don't know whether this was objectively true or not, but I do re...

Re: Elliott Ashton - Memorial Thread

Top bloke. Knew him for many years and can't even begin to express my sadness at his loss. In the town where he lived (leytonstone) he did so much to promote Star Wars and even got the Stuart Freeborn acknowldege there! Enjoyed the artistic events he put on and meeting him for a soft drink in the lo...

Re: What did everyone have in their childhood collection?

At the time I thought I had most of the figures with the exception of Lumat, B-wing Pilot and Han trench coat. I had picked up Anakin, Imperial Dig and A wing. But had not idea of any others, so obviously in addition to the above 3 was missing most of the last 17. Did have lots of doubles of key fig...

Re: -what's a true holy grail...

As far as I'm concerned a true holy grail is whatever piece you want most, for whatever personal reasons you have for wanting it. Like the other classic 'mega rare' grail gets thrown about a lot. This is or that is the holy grail of star wars collectors etc... Bull! who is anyone to tell me what the...

Re: didnt know palitoy licensed startrek stuff

Just watched the big bang episode mentioned above and noticed the star trek toy boxes had Palitoy on them...which was a shock. :o

Did a quick google search just to check my mind wasn't playing tricks and this thread was one of the first links to come up!

Re: Your first experience of Blue snaggletooth?

Knew nothing about him until I got Sansweets book in 94. Didn't see one until 99 when I went to my first collectors show in Cheshunt. Saw that and the VC jawa for the first time...both for £250 each! :shock: Back then I thought...that's crazy, i'll never spend that much. What did I know back then!! ...
