At a guess for fully insured and tracked postage. It's a good £20 for items up to £500.

Forums rules, is that prices must be specified too... no offers allowed.

Re: 30 BACK PALITOYS

Not that pricey to be honest Edd

Re: Frank, Please come back to the Forum

It's very tough to find guys that have a specific area of expertise. Guys like Frank and his baggies, Jason with the Palitoy and TT side, Gary with Palitoy & Bill McBride with Vader just for starters. If it wasn't for these guys we'd be stuffed basically as what they have brought to the hobby is...

Re: Questions about 12" vintage fett

Finding parts is not the easiest, especially the smaller parts like the wookie braids... Buying a complete one is the best option, but do buy from a reputable source, as I believe there are a number of repro parts out there now.

Re: POTF Yak Face

There's been a couple on the Facebook groups hitting about $200 (£150-£160) over the last few months, but have been in slightly better condition. The picture area has been more complete on those.

I'd pitch a tad lower at $170 (£130)... but in this current climate, it could go for more.

Re: Toy Toni Boba Fett....

I sometimes imagine all of the unfortunate unsuspecting people over the years in shock at the sight of the bubble falling off frantically trying to reattach it where the glue has given up the ghost.

Re: Toy Toni Boba Fett....

Card - £30 Figure - £100 Assuming this is the value you're obviously looking at £130 total value, so it actually amazes me how collectors are placing more than another £100 of value on the fact that some bloke glued down the bubble to the card in his own house lol. In reality a TT Fett should still...
