Re: Where do you buy Rare MOC?

Thanks for all you responses. Looks like I will have to improve my networking skills as to date they have been poor.

Re: Have prices peaked? Where are they going?

I do have a feeling that things are not moving as fast as they did 6 or 12 months ago. I think the market is just over saturated with the common stuff including blue snag and VCJ.
