Re: Guidance Advised: 2,387 Vintage Figures Melted

I don't want to give him a click. To anyone who has watched it all, does he offer a reason? Star Wars is finished for him since the takeover? Star Wars fans are a bunch of snowflakes or the exact opposite or whatever so this will annoy them? He's into the KLF? The Earth is flat?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Here's some silliness. A Communist Imperial Gunner from Iron Curtain era Poland.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I've not posted here in quite a while but feel the urge to share my chuft-ness at a common toy. I fancied an Imperial Transport and it was important the electrics worked. I saw this one listed as making some sort of vague sound so I bought it up with a view to pressing the buttons for a while to se...

Re: Imperial Troop Transport Appreciation Thread

I'm a latecomer to the transport party and I think it's mine that prompted Cazza to bump the thread. I had been fancying one but it was important the sound worked: I like the idea of fragile tiny records surviving all this time. I bought mine from eBay advertised as complete but making an unintellig...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 56 LAUNCHED

Many thanks, guys.

Oh, the TIE Pilot had a completely different picture on the Trilogo. So the quiz is null and void. :D The ATST Driver did too with a picture even more boring than previously. Oh and Lobot.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2017 - Round 3 - Match 4

I've to make a choice between Luke Bespin and Sandpeople AGAIN? It's Sandy for me again after much soul searching. ERG would probably get my vote in most draws too. Tough tie.

Re: Items you now regret selling?

I'm becoming fond of no-articulation vintage Polish bootleg figures. I regret selling a Leia I had that was irrelevent garish blue for 12 quid.

Re: The Palitoy Star Wars Return Of The Jedi Command Satellite

Fantastic stuff. I remember one of these in John Menzies in Argyll Street, Glasgow. I remeber that one day it was accompanied by a very lonely Darth Vader that nobody except passers-by seemed to know about. I'm guessing 1984 or even early 1985 but I suppose the date of that issue of ROTJ weekly is w...

Re: Blast from the past! Animatronic diorama display

That's quite a thing. Far too good not to post, indeed. It reminds me that the big Menzies in Glasgow had a walk-in small room with dioramas in it behind glass. Not as good as in the video but good enough for me to lap up. I'm guessing it was 1984. Was this the sort of thing Palitoy issued or just i...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 55 LAUNCHED

Well done on calling out those who think that ableist slurs are good. Removing the posts defending the most vulnerable people in society and keeping the others is quite possibly the most shocking part. It's the sort of things that go on in groups for people with absurdly angry idiolical opinions. As...

Re: Empire strikes back with adverts

Yep. I have to say those showings weren't quite the cultural phenomenon they should have been. Being in the dark times, I remember it was very much star wars 'fans' lapping it up with younger kids being quite non-plussed and many of my fellow teenagers being too cool for it, or pretending to be. I r...

Re: Empire strikes back with adverts

Spooked, ROTJ did show up earlier on the thread. If it's not active then let me know via PM in case I miss the thread. I don't stray here often. It is from the Boxing Day 1989 premier.
