Re: Diorama - do or dont?

I think dioramas are great and I'd love to build some myself. Have thought about turning pigeon holes in my cabinet into small scenes. So much scope - Tattooine, Hoth, Endor etc. The big problem is that for good dioramas you need lots of horizontal space which nobody has. Most of us display in a ver...

Re: 70s/80s Toy Shops

This is a post I made a couple of years ago on another thread about childhood memories: "One of my best memories is actually of a toy shop and it makes me feel quite nostalgic thinking about it. It was in Rayleigh in Essex and it was called Peter Jones. Downstairs it was like Martins/W H Smith ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I'm collecting on a budget at the moment and I picked this little beauty up the other day for a fraction of a sealed Moc. Apart from a slit round the bubble it's perfect. I like the photo on this card. Going to put a Ben in and add it to the collection. You can still enjoy collecting without spendin...

Re: Theft at Ranchi Obi-Wan

Well shitty! You can't steal from Sansweet. He's done loads for Star Wars fans and collectors. Met him briefly at celebration, nice fella. Hope he gets it all back :(

Re: What Do You Resent Buying?

Don't resent/regret buying anything Star Wars. Also don't feel the slavish need to complete "runs" so there's nothing I must have. I would never buy a Lobot or Madine or Bespin Guard Moc to finish something, they're lame and if I don't like it I don't buy it. My biggest fuck up was a loose...

Re: ROTJ MOC advice

You might be looking at Kenner ones, my Kenner has a different bubble and is lower. Looks ok to me too but impossible to say for sure without examining it in person.

Re: Auction Purchase - Reseal?

It looks like it's almost completely sealed to me except that little bit top right, so maybe a partial reseal. Looks good though, nice clean card and undamaged bubble. I wouldn't worry, it'll look good on display, just enjoy it for what it is. I wouldn't have bothered with the other ones personally ...

Re: What have you never owned?

There's lots of things in the line I've never owned but the only ones I really wanted was an Imp Shuttle and an AT-AT. I've got the Shuttle but I'd still love an AT-AT.

I'm not having it! Boba Fett is pronounced Bobber Fett, always was, always will.

Re: Displaying Helmets

Just had a thought. You could use a lamp, just take the shade off. Ive got two plain black metal lamps from Ikea that would prob work.
