Re: WATCH OUT THREAD – ANOTHER FAKE ITEM DISCOVERED

To me it's more alarming that this stuff is getting sold at places like farthest from, you would not expect to buy fakes from a place like that, surely the sellers must be concerned about being rumbled and confronted at such events Spot on. Events like FF and Echo Live should really be considered s...

Re: Show of your truly rare items

Cracking piece Paul, I remember seeing the one Jordan Hemborough had at the NEC about 5 years ago, he got it off Metropolis Toys and was in an episode of TOYHUNTER. He wanted £2.5 for it though!!! That had 6 Million $ Man and Superman on it I think along with the SW sticker. I also saw 2 SW stickers...

Re: Mattel Star Wars figures...?

Mego also passed on the license. Would have been cool to see a range of clothed figures and larger vehicles for them, a landspeeder would have been awesome. Mattel would have fucked it up, like they did with the Galactica range, the only thing they did get right was the cardback artwork for Clash Of...

Re: 20TH CENTURY FOX STAR WARS TRILOGY THEATRICAL STANDEE KIT #6969 1997

Very tough piece to value and sell as it's such a huge item, in terms of displaying it you'd need serious space. That puts it in a very tough spot to sell and it probably won't be as much as you think. My advice would be to auction it with a 99p start and see where it gets to. I'd hazard a guess at ...

This should be number 1 of the 'ten commandments of collecting'.

Fuck knows what the other 9 are though.

Maybe 'Thou shalt not buy repro' should be on there for seconds.

So cool to see stuff like this happen this late in the game, makes you wonder if there's any more undiscovered.

Re: Next Vectis Sale 10th July 2018

It does seem as though the quality and variety has not been as good these past few sales, still, a couple of bits there that need a new home ;)

Re: Gentle giant retro - what’s the vintage collector view?

I used to collect them years ago, in fact my very first sales thread on SWFUK nearly 6 years ago was for these figures. I'd had enough of them and was shifting all my modern stuff to concentrate on vintage. They are a very cool product and some of them are amazing - the Power Droid was my favourite....

Re: Cardback lifting?

It's called 'de-lamination' and as previously stated, when the adhesive between the 2 ppieces of card begins to decay for whatever reason. This can be down to moisture and then the card drying over time. I've seen countless examples of this on MOC's and other packaging. It can be fixed if it comes c...

Re: Empire " May the sound be with you" poster

Yes, don't come up often. There's also 3 different versions, a Woolworths one, a Dairy promotional one and this one.

Condition on this would put it at about £100 I'd say. But you never know at auction.
