Re: case of papillae of the tie fighter

That's so strange. I've never experienced this before where all the stickers fall off together. I hope you get them back on OK. I also hope your TIE Pilot wins some sort of award for flying his TIE Fighter side-saddle :lol: I must admit I noticed them starting to peal a few days ago just the corner...

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

Haven't posted anything for ages as I have not found anything that tickled my fancy. But had a great charity shop find today for £3'50 one of my great loves Bendems, this was undamaged and I was over the moon as I don't have a Vader. But on the way home fate struck and a 4 Pinter of milk rolled out ...

Re: What baffled you most about the toys as a kid?

[How the pilot's area of the Falcon is separate to the rest of the ship (I wanted it to all be connected inside :lol: ) As a kid I always wanted to rip out the cardboard wall of the falcon so I could hide figures in there and wondered what was behind there, all that wasted space, luckily I didn't an...

Re: Question On Boxes And Inserts Etc When We Were Kids

I was one of those weird kids who kept boxes and actually put his toys back in them. :lol: All my SW vehicles were sold with their boxes, and most of the other toys I have from my childhood are still boxed! I think it's because I used to love looking at toys in the shops and liked the idea of boxin...

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

Other than Star Wars, Black Hole, VINCENT is still one of my favourite figures. Battlestar Galactica. Mego figures. Scalextric. Micronauts, the magnetic ones in black and white, robots and horses that fired missiles! Britains figures, WW2, Cowboys and Indians, Knights, Stargards and Aliens. Action ...

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? *NO* SPOILERS

I've only just watched it and must admit it's ok, as said before better than the last offering, its got the Disney sugar coating and there was no goose bump moments but it was on the whole ok and the time went fast when watching it which normally lets me know if its above average. And you get to see...
