Re: Full MOC run

Hey Scott. Hope you are well. This used to be my goal, one character on any card. I ended up resenting my collecting a little. I was buying stuff I didn’t want because I had to tick boxes and it really sucks the fun out of it. Yak face was always my Achilles. Always available, and always overpriced....

Re: VC Jawa 12 back (A) AFA 70 EX+ (60-85-85)

Hi. Can’t help with value as I’m not really in touch but the grading means nothing here I’m afraid, other than possibly easing someone’s mind with the authenticity. The fact it might have graded this or that if it didn’t have damage is irrelevant. Collectors of graded figures only see what it did gr...

Re: General Grumbling

I find the anti grading brigade quite comical as many of them buy graded pieces and crack them open afterwards thereby supporting the very industry they allegedly hate. Then you have another group who are anti grading right up to the point where they want to sell and all those anti grading posts ar...

Re: Celebration 2019 is in Chicago.

Not rightly sure how, given I was on my phone, in the lay-by of the a264 on 4g, but I somehow managed to get one of the

Re: Palitoy VCJ ebay

I have reread this thread a couple of times and must say, I can’t see what Andy has done wrong. You asked him how much he wanted, he told you £3k and then you made him several offers that were less. He got an offer over £3k and took it.

I don’t think he was being devious, I think he just wanted £3k

Re: Palitoy VCJ ebay

I just want to highlight how greed triumph given word.
