Re: Build Your Own R2D2

Geez.. just noticed it's been just under a year since I updated this.. Just passed the half way point now and things are starting to speed up a bit.... getting to the slightly better stuff now. One leg is now complete... a tad weighty too !! Has motor and sensors built in, so can sense if it gets cl...

Re: Mystery of John Kellerman Star Wars Action figures book

I picked the book up on it's first (and only release). Was certainly 'the' book to have back then, but now, as others have said, nothing in it cannot be found on the WWW. I see from that RS link, that Tom Derby was getting involved with the extended 1st edition... any idea why he didn't carry it on ...

Re: Did potf mocs make it to uk shelves ?

Had pickings of a freshly sealed case of Trilogos in my favourite childhood store in 85... Never knew about POTF until the 90s. Think it was with Jim Stevenson that I first saw them.. can't recall if it was at Memorabilia or listed in M&CM magazine.

Re: FORUM FIGURE 2018 - ROUND 1 - GROUP J

3PO gets my top vote too, purely for the play apart feature. Han and Leia come 2nd and 3rd. The rest just don't have it for me.

Re: 2012 silver coin falcon set 2

Hi Tom, Welcome to the forum. Just FYI, there are not just silver coins in the 30th anniversary set if you're going for a full set. There's 13 gold and a black coin, which brings the set up to 96 all in. I have the full set in a custom frame, if you're interested... won't be cheap though as there ar...

Re: TT Snowtrooper assistance.

Hoth Stormtrooper did come with the larger trilogo style bubble but the corners of where it attaches to the card should be squared and not rounded like yours.

Re: Graded figures on ebay

They can be freed... with a big hammer..

Of course the case will be destroyed but a nice openable GW Acrylic case can take it's place so you can take the figure out and view it as much as you like.

Re: Din I get conned selling

Actually he gave me £200 for starters as his "professional evaluation", but after I texted him saying that some of the rare figures are supposedly worth more. He instantly gave me £100. That raised my suspicion about the whole deal and I started to research and found ebay prices and found...

Watched it last night and been spending the day trying to absorb it.. For me.. it's the best of films since the OT.. but does have some really big unanswered questions which may now never be answered. Who was Snoke ??

Anyone promoting this crap needs to naff off too. There is enough of this repro stuff around and we don't need more of it.
