Re: Another utter Arsehole

I had a discussion with him last week when he threatened to do this.

Is opening Mocs a more acceptable practice in action force collecting? I can feel some of their frustration since the SA-80 is now outrageously expensive all because of the YPS dickheads.

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

I was almost exclusively Stars Wars with a smattering of Lego (mostly jumble sale pick ups but some Technic when I was older) The other main line I was really into which doesn’t get any love these days was Robotics. These were modular play sets that could be built into various space machines and ope...

Not much love for the micro collection eh Lars!

Here’s my generator attack set, it’s MISB but hopefully someone has an open one so we can see the contents

Re: South West/Bristol/Gloucester Meet 6th Oct Indian or Thai?

7 is good for me. We always used to go to the twelve bells on our lunch break, it’s a bit out of town though and the landlord was a right miserable sod! Haven’t been out there for years though so can’t offer any up to date suggestions. Ill bring a little something for the show and tell but it won’t ...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 37, 2018, Part 1/2

I’m really not a big fan of 4-Lom, I think it’s somethig to do with how stupid he looks when you take of the coat and vest. So I’m not entirely sure why I ended up with this lot :lol:

I’d go for a Clark’s pie but I don’t think friar tucks does them so I’ll be happy with a curry. What sort? Indian or Thai? :lol: Friar Tuck's is a quality chippy 8) Doh! I meant an Indian, sorry about the confusion. I’ll have to drive up through Swindon on my way through so happy to pick up a bunch...

Re: top 3 props you would have in your collection (smalls)

Great shout on the rogue one hard drive!

I’ve always wanted a rebel soldier hat from the hoth uniforms. It’s so cool looking and something you could actually wear out on the slopes.

To be a bit different how about Lobots head piece and jabbas bong. :)

Re: Carded Power Droid 21b Disaster

That’s a strange thing to happen, if there was a few mm of space between the bubble to the acrylic I wouldn’t have expected it to have moved enough to crush itself. It might be something to do with the figure though as I also have a 21 back power droid which cracked all by itself. This one was in a ...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Dave Tree would be a great chap to contact as he has heaps of Palitoy knowledge. A few years ago he unearthed an uncut trilogo sheet - http://www.starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=18730&start=45 This was a reject due to the sheet being in the machine upside down for one of the colour passes so...

Re: What could Kenner have done better ?

Good theory on the rebel trooper. The next 8 releases up to 20 backs make sense too: 4 aliens to go with the creature cantina palyset 3 new droids to go with the droid factory/land of the jawas Luke x wing to go with the ship Then they went with Fett and before you know it Empire is round the corner...

Re: Vintage Collecting Book

There’s a lot of books out there and you could spend a lot very quickly - especially with out of print stuff like the Kellerman book.

My suggestion would be to watch plastic galaxy, it’s a really well put together documentary and gives a great overview of Kenner and interviews with ex-employees
