Re: Original Blu-Rays

Please don't buy the despecialised editions. People have put years of effort into creating these fan edits and making them available to download for free, then scum come along and spend a couple of hours putting them onto blu-ray and knocking a couple of covers together and charge ridiculous amounts...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 1, 2019, Part 1/2

Here's another 31-back Kenner MOC. I bloody love this cardback!

Re: Price sticker dilemma

Originally I wasn't a fan of price stickers, but over time they've grown on me. I think it's mainly because of the history associated with the MOC. I'm lucky enough to own a MOC and MISB item from two of my childhood stores; I never ever thought that'd happen. I actually own this Leia Bespin with a ...

Now you've got everyone wondering what the first most over hyped figure is!

(red bar R5 right?)

Now there's an idea for a forum poll!

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 43, 2018, Part 2/2

One of my all-time favourites, both as a kid and collector. As a kid this looked so close to what appeared in the film that it fascinated me. I've posted this before but here I am with my brother with our combined SW toys (and the plastic knife that went everywhere with him for a while!) - my R2 can...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 43, 2018, Part 1/2

This is one of my all time favourite playsets (beneath the Ewok Village). I loved it as a kid, the playvalue was immeasurable. The Jabba playset is one of my earliest childhood Star Wars memories, when I visited my grandparents in Hamburg. When I arrive, the playset was already put on my bed ... ju...

Nice Jabbas guys!

I never had this as a kid, but for some reason I'm really attracted to the Sears 'line art' box version - it's on my list of things I'd like nut I've still not snagged an reasonably priced one.

Re: Who else remembers taking a bath with these two guys?

I was wondering where this would be going when I read the subject... :lol:

A school mate of mine had both of these. I remember them being really solid so I can imagine it wasn't the best of soaps to use!!

Re: Another utter Arsehole

This is what fucks me off about the 'YPS trooper' and ignorant collectors. To my mind it isn't a YPS trooper unless it came with the magazine. The price the SA80 goes for on some vintage SW groups is ridiculous, and decent AF collectors must despise the vintage SW community. Ripping open MOCs from o...

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

Also remember fondly a Matchbox Space 1999 Eagle. I think I remembered it so well as I was severely ill post dental treatment under gas and hence part of the trauma offset! :lol: They had to keep stopping the Mk II Cortina so I could spu on numerous occasions. I wanted one of those Eagles when I wa...
