Re: Another utter Arsehole

The yps snowtrooper is a hard torso snowtrooper that is less common but still abundantly available as it was packaged on trilogo cards. It has a slightly different cape as well.

They only graded a few repros for one person as they were apparently sentimental. Once he put them up for sale for 000s, cas had to pay him to destroy them.

They put the words “toy Toni production” on the label of a toy Toni.

Re: Anyone at a loose end in town on 20th September.

It was brilliant. Everyone in there was drinking the free booze and having a great time. The hat was my highlight as we had a guy bidding for it in the room. Took it up to £300k as well.

I would highly recommend attending one of these. Not like any auction I have ever been to.

Re: I made a poobacca.

If you need any more of these, I have a good supply.

I will let you have them for £5 each, but they don’t come with the bandolier. I could probably add a tapeworm though. Might look the same.

Re: Should grading companies archive/case reproductions?

They will mark, and it will be spun that they are such a great company because they listen to the community and make these changes etc etc.

But they thought it was a good idea in the first place......

Re: WATCH OUT THREAD – ANOTHER FAKE ITEM DISCOVERED

It’s very sad that this saga continues to throw up these surprises and damaging the hobby.

I am slightly perturbed by what is going on here though, as Marc is a really decent bloke. I would love to hear his side of this story.
