Re: Buying in the 80's how we used to buy figures

My first figure was bought while on holiday in St Ives Cornwall,1983. In one of those little seaside toy shops. The carded figs were on a rotating stand and staring at me was Luke Jedi from the soon to be released Jedi film. I don't think I've ever been so excited! It was the early version with blue...

Re: Darth Vader tour photos wanted

I know I've shared this with you already Craig but here is a snapshot of "Darth Vader" from early 1983 or late 1982 when he visited Scotch Corner toy shop in Kilmarnock. A long ago now but my memories are of waiting in a huge queue outside the shop after closing time, finally making it up...

Re: New retroline.......

They look cool, but so do many repro carded figures on ebay. If you decided to display them and a fellow SW fan asks a question about them what are you going to do, pretend they're 12 backs because Disney Hasbro holds the licence currently? No, you're going to say 'they're not originals but reissues...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 15, 2018, Part 1/2

No longer have my childhood stuff but I restored the one in this picture last year from an absolute shell. If you look close you can see me me here about to replace part of the cannon :lol: It was fre...

Re: Guidance Advised: 2,387 Vintage Figures Melted

What a dickhead. :evil:
Costs a small fortune to pick up used figures these days as it is. There might still be tens of thousands out there but they're finite and now the pool of figs has shrunk a little more.

Dragged out into the street and flogged with Chewbacca Bandoliers i'd say.

Luke Bespin - one of the Luke's i desperately wanted but never found on pegs. Always loved that cardback, just wish they had given him a blue sabre :roll:

Re: US to UK post.

Looks ok to me. All I think its saying is that its left Heathrow Airport but probably the next destination will be Customs or the Parcelforce depot which will still be around Heathrow just a different area. :wink:

Re: FORUM FIGURE 2018 - THE GRAND FINAL

Both were childhood favourites for me so its a tough call, but I agree with Savory about weapon detail - Biker Scout's looks great and suits the figure as a lightly armoured trooper. The Snowie's rifle has always been a bit awkward and probably showed have been a standard Stormie blaster. So on that...
