Re: Just popped in to see Toy Toni

A few unused cards made it into the collector market..

IIRC Lee Bullock had a Lando Skiff card a fair few years back.

Re: Just popped in to see Toy Toni

He still had a fair few genuine cards up until a few months ago... not sure why he's removed them now.. I have been going in almost every week for a few years now, and I think he took them all out because people stopped buying them. Before they were selling quite regularly and he was re stocking al...

Re: Full MOC run

I owned a full 96 set up till 2003... sold them off as I went in a different direction.. always regretted it as had some real gems in there... but also a fair few TTs that wasn't world news back then too. Now owing my second set is a mixture of thoughts.... since having our little one the temptation...

Re: Boba Fett and Storm Trooper ESB

Last Stormtrooper sold in April last year for £185, and Fett back in June last year for $650 although that had a shaved POP on the back.

Both were Facebook sales.

At a rough guess, in todays climate, I'd say £250 for the Stormtrooper and £700 for the Fett.

Hopefully others will chime in.

Re: Boba Fett and Storm Trooper ESB

A picture or 2 paints a thousand words.

Condition is everything, so if you can stick a few decent pics up of each, then people can give you a better idea.

Re: Toy Toni selling his unused MOC stock

I've just noticed that Toni's website has now gone: http://www.toytoni.com He has also taken most of the Star Wars stock out of his Snoopers Paradise stall. Still selling a few small bits on eBay, but maybe he's finally winding down? Who's up for a group buy? :) What do you think he has left ? i wo...

Re: Build Your Own R2D2

That's gonna be a great piece of kit, I wasn't expecting there to be so many metal parts, I assumed almost everything would just be plastics, so that's gonna end up being a nice heavy quality piece of kit. Looking forward to the finished model. Cheers... apparently it's going to be around 10kilos w...

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? *NO* SPOILERS

I'm enjoying these 'stories' more than the recent films... Rogue 1 was a superb tie in / link film and Solo is just as good as a character telling story.. Ron Howard did a superb job with this one and hopefully he'll be at the helm of a few more.. If you've been hesitant in seeing it... don't.. you ...
