Re: c3p0 rotj removable limbs value?

100 pounds would be for a 77 back Jedi card though?

Would ESB be around 250 to 300?

Re: 70s/80s Toy Shops

I used to get my figures in a toy shop called Gordon Christies in St Andrews. They have now moved from their original location. Apart from that I remember getting figures in John Menzies, Asdas and Tescos. In fact I started collecting MOCs in 1990 when Menzies had a giant bin of them for 99p each. P...

Re: You have to see this! 1980 report on new ESB toys!

Glad you all like it. Someone posted it on one of the FB groups. It's not very well titled on there. I was pretty blown away when I saw it. There's even quite a funny video from a news report in 1983 on the Jedi figures where the reporter laughs at a man who says he is buying figures as an investmen...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

OK enough MASK, here's my latest Star Wars pick up. I used to have one of these but had to sell it to put money towards a house purchase. I regretted it ever since, and even though it cost me almost twice what I sold my old one for I am really happy to have one again as IMO it is one of the most ic...

Re: Who's the actor on the DSC cardback?

I think in the original photo he looks like Robert Duvall, and in the airbrushed photo, Ed Harris.

Looks good to me. Do a google search and look at Topps cards he has signed. Matches my two genuine Fords.

Figures in most demand

Hey everyone. I saw a video from the collecting room at Celebration where the guy taking the video said Luke Farmboy seems to be hard to pick up on any card as everyone wants him. It seems he and Boba Fett seem the most desirable just now. What does everyone else think?
