Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

I've never spent beyond my means on anything, but I have always felt guilty about buying vintage stuff that's more than a couple of hundred pounds. The most I've ever spent on one item is £400 all in and I just didn't buy anything for ages after. The investment thing is something I've always used as...

Re: Question On Boxes And Inserts Etc When We Were Kids

I kept most of my boxed Star Wars items from childhood as I insisted on it. The first Items I got were MF, AT-ST and Snowspeeder, my Mum through all the boxes out and I whent nuts! So from then on all the boxes were kept. Annoyingly I didn’t keep any of the cardboard inserts. I’m not really sure why...

Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

Yes I noticed no Star Wars in the 1981 catalogue, very strange. They did have quit a lot in the 1984 catalogue which is a double page, but not much really in others. I think it was their thinking to have a little bit of everything. As a kid I always remember wanting stuff that I only saw in the cata...

The crap you could buy back then was unb...

Re: Were you a "one toy line" kid?

Star Wars was the first and always the main. But Masters of the Universe was a close second. I always wanted an Optimus Prime from Transformers but never got one. Although I can't complain as I did have plenty of toys. The main ones I had were: Star Wars He-Man Thundercats Ghostbusters Micro Machine...
