Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 24, 2018, Part 2/2

What a lovely collection of emperor's, under rated figure in my opinion, never was much interested in this figure as a child , I suppose as a kid you tended to go for the action figures mostly when playing, the back to front two left legs emperor made me laugh real comedy value :lol: , love finding ...

Re: What do you do when collecting gets boring?

I have my childhood stuff and some bits picked up over the years at boot sales nothing of any real value, but I've always found the vintage sw toys so interesting right since a kid and I really don't know why ?? I've got no compulsion to collect mib or moc or have them all but just like looking at v...

Re: Falcon Dilemma

If you have enough room it would be cool to display them together stickered and non stickered side by side. :)

Re: General Grumbling

I think my only grumble was the cheap thin plastic hooks kenner / palitoy used in the tie fighters to attach the wings most of mine broke and are now fixed using the toy polloi method but its not perfect and one did break again on the tie interceptor, those wings are to heavy and long for such a thi...

Re: Removing soot from a moc

Re: Set loose from an AFA tomb

I have always thought that people should do what ever they want to their items (display wise), as long as no damage is done to them as the hobby has always been about fun , enjoyment and nostalgia to me, I don't own any high ticket items just my child hood collection and what I've picked up over the...

Re: What Rare Items Do You Remeber Opening?

Don't know what's classed as rare from the original SW cards but ripped my way through a fair number of these, as I kept my original cards backs, this kenner t r and a palitoy power droid are in evidence of my eager impatient need to get to the lovely sw goodness inside, I always kept the cards so w...

Re: Haslab Khetanna

Retro Blasting echo many of the above opinions worth a watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koRTU-nZlJU I do agree that many of the latest offerings from Hasbro are truly appalling, Hans new Falcon does not look good, but maybe kids will like toys like the new falcon, but with sales down 20 0dd % m...

Re: Bargain / Discount /Sale retail thread

Just picked up a Captain Phasma the cheaper Disney Hasbro five half inch line, white box, no leg articulation fig at Aldi down to £2.99 from £6.99 :lol: displays nice but think that's about its real value (very hollow plastic feel, gun permanently fixed in hand) compared to the dearer line, they had...

Re: When was the last time you saw a carded figure out in the wild?

Have mentioned this before but about 1995 I saw my sisters friends boy playing with some Jabbers goons and asked where they came from, she said a woman on a greeting card stall was selling them down the market for 40p each carded, he had ripped them open , even back then :o I shot down there and bou...

Re: Is Star Wars only for the rich ?

I've only ever collected for fun and never spent much money, think that's reflected in the eccentric and average quality and types of items I have, when it becomes about the value it doesn't interest me, its always been about the fun and the memories, if I had anything of any real value I would worr...
