Re: What’s your favourite First 12 figure loose and is it different to your favourite First 12 MOC?

I don't really have a lot of love for the first 12, mostly because I was too young to remember them but I also feel the sculpting was understandably poorer than the rest of the run. The telescoping lightsabers didn't do it for me either along with Hans massive head (didn't know about the pin head ve...

Re: Do you post after having a drink?

Yes I've done it, it all depends what you've posted. If it's something silly or on the other hand it makes you cringe once you've reread it the next day. Its really not a nice feeling it's more embarrassment than anything, I've been down both roads :lol: I try to avoid posting on the web now if I'v...

Re: Farthest From XVI - 9th and 10th December 2017

Edit: had a short talk with my wife in the meantime. Maybe I'm a little bit late in planning for this FF and better try to get there next time. :( Then I'll maybe do this trip with a fellow collector from Germany and we will combine it with a roundtrip along the coast. That's a real shame as the Ch...

Re: To break or not to break?

^^ exactly, who cares what the grade says, if you break it out you'll just have to buy another case so I'd leave it.

Re: Beater weequay Moc

I think you were pretty much spot on with your initial valuation. It's a real mess and you should be able to pick up a c7 one for around £40.

Re: Kenner ROTJ Moc rarity

Luke blue sabre did come on a trilogo although there are very few examples.

Scottyboy offered me one for sale a few years back and I turned him down :roll:

Re: Palitoy 20-backs with damaged bubbles

I picked up the 4 cantina aliens with cut bubbles last year for about 90 a piece so I'd recon they might go for the higher end of Carl's estimate although bum face seems to be missing the bottom part so might be a bit less.

Mine had the footers but we're missing the nameplates

Re: The beginning of the end?

As Churchill once said "it is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning". I feel like we're at a point of saturation, there can't be many more people left to enter the hobby and with the frequency the new films are released and how eve...

Re: What are Your Favourite & Least Favourite Vintage Weapons / Accessories?

Zuckuss blaster was my go to as a kid. It's absolutely enormous and would take out waves of storm troopers with ease. I'll second the ree yees blaster for the worst choice. It's so shit I didn't even realise it's supposed to be a blaster until I started collecting. I thought it was some sort of pipe...

Re: Jukesy ESB MOC's

I picked up an offerless Dengar (41 back?) earlier in the year for 150. The bubble was clean though so unless there's a premium on 47 backs I would imagine yours would go for a little less.

Re: The Empire Strikes Back Revisited - Review

It's finally here! Thanks so much for the great review Matt and to Adywan if he's on here.
I too have followed this for what seems like an eternity had assumed it was never coming out.
Can't wait to get home and download now.

Re: My book The Star Wars Phenomenon in Britain is available as a pre-order - update with photos.

I'll be buying your book either way but would much rather pick one up in person from you. Not only would it be great to meet you and have a quick chat but I'm all for cutting out the middle man if I can! Dave Tree used to organise a few talks throughout the day at older farthest froms, it's a bit to...

That is really is a grail right there Steve.
What was your reaction when you were flicking through the mag and that dropped out!
