Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 27, 2018, Part 1/2

It's difficult to find a loose example in decent condition as they usually suffer from paint chips. I'll dig mine out and get a picture uploaded :)

Re: This is very sad - Ahmed Best

It's really sad but not entirely surprising as SF seems to have more than its fair share of nut jobs. It's even easier now than it was 20 years ago with more people able to access the WWW and the anonymity it provides, the rise of social media and the proliferation of platforms making it easy to fin...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 26, 2018, Part 1/2

You’ve a few of these then! They are all in great condition, especially the hair which gets worn so easily? Great comparison shot too. Thanks :-). I'm hoping some members may be able to post a few MOC examples of Leia, as sadly I don't have one to contribute to the thread. Well, almost MOC...! I ha...

Re: Is Kenner worth more than Palitoy?

IMO collectors pay a premium for the Palitoy logo, because the colours are so vivid and patriotic and evoke a sense of nostalgia, hence SW and ESB are highly sought after. When it comes to ROTJ there is no logo and no nostalgia, and at that point I think collectors prefer a logo to none at all. As ...

Since you haven't logged in since asking the question, I'm guessing it's 'turn to stone'! :o

Re: Best way to flatten curved cardback?

Yeah straight into an acrylic case for me, just watch out when you slide it in because the tabs inside can rub against the card edges, and scrape the black litho off because the warped card is trying to push back against the tabs. The best way to combat this is a strip of paper folded lengthways ac...

Re: Which MOC is best - thoughts please.

It depends on whether you're looking sell the 'best' to get more money, or want to keep the 'best' for your own collection.

Re: What do you do when collecting gets boring?

Boring? I can see how it can get frustrating but never boring. As others have said it's always good to have other hobbies. I usually end up focusing on one whilst keeping the others ticking over in the background. Even if I'm not making many/any purchases I always enjoying looking at what I have in ...

Exactly it doesn’t matter how much you spend it’s the principle of it that if you buy something in that condition it should arrive the same way. I messaged him which he wouldn’t take responsibility and threatened me that is I leave a negative then he’ll leave one back. Now he’s told me to get a lif...

When you have useful information like that I don't see any problem with digging up an old post.
