Re: Watch out for this guy - Andrew Paul Lachance

Hello again. Ive been lurking for a while but this thread is just bizarre. I must comment. Maybe there should be a list. I know there's the dodgy dealers section but perhaps this merits a complete mad bastards list?

Re: Starting Collection

I also received a free pubic hair with a Jedi knight Luke I bought from there. Wasn't from Mumbo was it :lol: :lol: :lol: He loves to give away a freebie :D[/quote] Dunno, the DNA test has yet to be returned. It was very black if that helps. The figure really was in excellent condition, so I left p...

Re: Starting Collection

Alright mate, I'm pretty new as well. I've started collecting loose figures, got nine now off eBay. I reckon 90% of the weapons from there are fakes. Often figures have paint rubs and tiny marks that don't show up on photographs. I also received a free pubic hair with a Jedi knight Luke I bought fro...

Re: Should imperial blasters bend?

Hi mate. Yes just browse the FS section. If your interested in anything send the seller a PM (Private Message) by clicking the pm button. Virtually everybody if not all use paypal as payment. If you stick to buying from the veteran members and don't jump on any new members who have no rep you shoul...

Re: Best modern example of Luke?? Opinions sought.

Vintage collection Bespin Luke. Yep he looks pretty good, decent face sculpt too.

I think the Bespin fatigues aren't as iconic as the pilot gear though. He's going on the maybe list. Hopefully the black series will have a Jedi Knight Luke at some point.

Best modern example of Luke?? Opinions sought.

I'm interested in getting a modern Luke figure. I don't know much about the modern toys lines. I have the POTF2 Rebel Pilot and Hoth gear Luke but I hate them cos he looks like a twat. So apart from the original vintage Jedi Knight Luke which kicks serious ass, what do people think is the best moder...

Well Lobot and Lando had what can be described as a special relationship.

Age has made me wonder if Lobot has chosen the camp side of the force. Who chose that shirt?

Re: A Change of Star Wars Heart....?

Yep 4-LOM I had him as a kid and didn't know who he was. Which is understandable as he looks nothing like his screen counterpart. I thought he might be a shitty version of the Sand People.

Now I think hes cool, he's a pretty snappy dresser with that cream overcoat. What a pimp.

Re: Should imperial blasters bend?

Congrats. Although their is a mint Klaatu on here from rangersjedi for 24.99. And skywalker has a Biker scout for sale :) I don't get how money changes hands here. I do want to buy from collectors rather than eBay. The stuff I've seen on here it just so much better. Do you just browse the for sale ...

Re: First moc figure, now how do I look after it?

I would rather buy items from other collectors. I don't trust sellers on ebay. I mean who is that seller who says he's from Spain? always seems to be dodgy Del Boy stuff. How does buying and selling work on here? How are transactions done? using paypal I imagine. I've only ever used it on ebay, how ...

I'm new to forums in general im trying to learn the lingo and rules. So I chanced to click on this thread and I followed the repo weapons link and the photo one. As a new collector that sort of thing is exactly what I want to know about. If stuff/threads like that could be collected into an informat...

Re: Vintage Star Wars compulsion, please help!

I'm now in way too deep to turn back. I've bought a tooth brush not for cleaning teeth but for cleaning loose figures. Well that's Sunday afternoon sorted, it's bath time for Chewie.
