That is true until you come to sell because going from a 90 to 95 can add a huge amount to the price

Re: RotJ yellow bubbles

It's thought that Kenner must have changed the type of plastic they used from this line onwards, POTF figures are even worse.

If you're looking for clear bubble ROTJ figures then you're best bet would be to go for trilogo as they are usually still crystal clear but often come with a few dings.

Re: The Last Jedi - **SPOILERS THREAD**

Great video Weasel, he makes some good points and I like the way he gave Johnson the red lightsabre

This is my personal favourite of the current YouTube vids - until Mr Plinkett gets around to doing his

Aha! But the contest is for the best figure, cardbacks don't come into it. I call a foul and demand you vote again!

Re: VCJ?

I wouldn't waste your time, putting a fake rare figure in a group shot of beaters and claiming to have found them in a loft is a classic scam.

Re: VCJ?

I'd be very surprised if this was genuine, why would an Australian exclusive figure be in with a lot of beaters the British seller's "had for years"

Re: Short shot Imp blaster

I picked up a standard dark blue blaster at FF for £15 before Christmas so I suppose you can start there and work up! This will be a very niche area of collecting though so it will totally depend on the buyer in terms of final value but I personally wouldn't pay much more than a standard version. If...

Re: Did potf mocs make it to uk shelves ?

I believe the body rig Mocs were the US release where as we had the far superior boxes :D I had the sand skimmer when I was a kid but never saw the other two until the 2000's. I believe they were more common on the continent. POTF figures weren't on general release here and we got our last 17 on tri...

Re: Your personal favourite underrated figure

8D8 was a favourite when I was a kid. His detachable legs came in handy during all sorts of adventures and you could fold him in half and pretend he was a spaceship (if you imagined hard enough!)

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

When I was 3 my parents sat me down and explained to me I will be having a little brother. As a treat and I suppose because I was no longer their only child, they gave me this IMG_1207.JPG I was so thrilled with it I named my brother power droid for the whole of my mums pregnancy. :) This really is ...
