Re: latest palitoy MOC prices from this mornings Vectis auct

Crazy prices and sounds that some have damp issues as well. I am in the process of selling off my Palitoy collection and have been very reasonable with my pricing in my view. I see this as a hobby and I hope I have been fair and believe it is important not to price genuine collectors out of the hobb...

Re: Palitoy MOC 30 backs

I was offered a Large set of Palitoy 30 backs in the early 2000, may be the collection Gary bought. Cant quite remember how many were in the set but i do know Yoda was one of them. I believe the asking price was around the £3000 mark. I had just started collecting the 12/20 backs and £3000 at that t...

Re: Palitoy 20 back Power Droid

Probably the hardest 20 bk to find in decent condition,due to the oversize bubble. When I was collecting a number of years back the best example I could find was an afa 75, and I remember what I let that go for. Today's prices £1k+ in my opinion Thanks for the quote Lee. The bubble is large and a l...

Palitoy 20 back Power Droid

I have a C9.5 Palitoy 20 back Power Droid and was wondering what the current valuation
would be for this.
I haven't seen any for sale recently and have owned mine for over 12 years so have not got a clue on price.
Any advice / help would be welcome.

Re: Thanks for all your support - Health update

I know how you feel waiting for results. I had a biopsy on my lymph nodes over 4 weeks ago.
I hope you get the all clear and everything is ok for you.
The waiting is the worst part.

Re: Gary Kurtz Palitoy VC Jawa.

Were Kenner 12 backs sold in the uk in 1978 ? or was the uk market back in 1978 Palitoy only. I know later on in the early 80,s kenner items could be bought in the uk. The reason I ask this is I had a vinyl cape jawa which I bought in ASDA in 1978 when the Star wars 12 backs first hit the shops. I b...

Thanks for the best wishes

On another topic I mentioned that I have had two major operations in the past year. I would just like to thank all of those who wished me well. I had two tumours removed one from my lower spine last February and the other from my lung last March. I have to have 6 monthly check ups which include a MR...

Re: How has your collecting developed?

I started collecting in 1999, when I went to a local collectors shop and bought a Kenner ROTJ 8D8 MOC. I Saw some Kenner 12 backs and at a local collectors fair and thought it would be good to have a 12 back MOC. I then saw a Palitoy 30 back C3PO and decided to try and get a 12 back Palitoy instead ...

Re: Best figures for a focus?

I was going to do a Han Solo focus but when i thought of needing a Palitoy Large head Han, that put me off going ahead with this.
I do think a character that appears on the Star Wars card does give you a lot more to collect but can be expensive.

Re: Vintage figure evaluation please!!

Palitoy prices are always unpredictable. Recent ESB Palitoy prices have surprised me, especially for 41 and 45a backs. 30 back prices have been high the past 5 years. When i started collecting in the late 90's ESB cards were not as sort after has the Star Wars first 12 cards , but that has definatel...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Burnsy: That's the joy of collecting Palitoys, nothing around for ages and then several show up together.
Nice quality MOC's by the way, congrats.
