Re: Argh!!!!! Double Stem bubbles in transit!

Can you buy those sliders from Iain, UKG or others? I never realised they were moveable - I always assumed they were affixed to the acrylic top. I'd like to get a few of them myself to protect my own stuff.

Re: No luck but am I being ripped off?

I can see how he was saying that he was just after a mint one, not necessarily carded. Could be taken either way, I guess. There are very nice Bens out there. If you don't care if its loose, hold off on the premium you'll pay for the cardback and bubble - which you say you're not worried about. You ...

Re: How I lost my parcel

Hang in there mate. I had a similar issue with a parcel I sent to Europe that went missing, but it did eventually show up. Just took ages. It could be just that it has been left on a desk or something similar. Don't hive up just yet. I had another package that was six months late in being delivered ...

Re: SPOILER FREE Reviews/Reaction to TLJ

Yeah, I'm still in two minds about it. Great scenes and some really funny parts - I really liked the humour - but there were some bits I just didn't know about. Some very unexpected turns too.

It definitely entertained and was a big movie. ESB is still my fav tho.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I too thought the “Woolies” bags had loose figures in too, learn something every day. They actually had both. You could get a bag full of baggies, a bag full of loose or a mix of both. Most of the time, there was a mix with baggies outnumbering loose, from what I believe. I just wanted to put toget...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I have finally finished this 'Imperial' Woolies 8-Pack, complete with 100% Palitoy baggies. Been a bigger challenge than expected, no thanks to that bloody baggie scammer we all know about, but finally I have managed to complete it with legitimate baggies. Big thanks to Frank (and many others) for h...

Re: Frank, Please come back to the Forum

Good to have you back :-D Best of luck recreating the baggie guide. You'll get there in the end, I'm sure, just don't knock yourself out trying to prioritize it over more important things in your life. What a ridiculous thing to say. As IF family could ever be more important than Star Wars (says th...

Re: ESB to RoTJ Transition Cards

Some are easier than others, but a very cool variant. I've seen a Fett, and I have one of the only two Vaders I've heard of. I think ESB characters were easier than the first 21 as a rule of thumb - mind you, 'easier' still means tough. It was a very clever (and very cheap) way for Kenner canada to ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Very interesting. I've had two pass through my own hands, and I know of at least 3 others. Two of those were on ebay.

That ismn't many though, is it? Maybe because my focus is on Vader, I've missed the Yodas. Suffice to stay that both are tough!!

Cheers
Pat
