Re: I have an original Hans Solo Carbonite figure from the movie set,

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

Re: Dagobah playset original foam preservation

The problem with keeping it permanently damp will be the growth of mould. I don't have any expert advice to offer on preserving this unfortunately, but I do know that mould will usually quickly grow on a damp and dirty surface (and unless it's never been played with, the foam will have lots of dirt...

Re: Dagobah playset original foam preservation

Cheers Andy, will do. So I'm assuming that's a permanent thing to stop it getting any worse and the foam is going to stay damp?

Dagobah playset original foam preservation

I've bought a really nice Dagobah playset. It has the original swamp foam which is complete and in great condition other than being damp, almost like it's 'sweating'. I know these are usually found to be dried out and crumbling, but I was wondering if anyone had come across this before or had any ad...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 9, 2018, Part 2/2

Some really great stuff on this thread! :D I'm a little late to the party, but here's my loose snowspeeder I think so too, the Die Cast line is a very unappreciated SW toy line. Your Snowspeeder looks mint and I must say your photography skills are awesome. Great photo! You're right, the die-cast l...

Re: Cast lead vintage weapons

Those Amanaman staffs were hilarious - getting him to stand up whilst holding a lead staff weighing more than the figure was a fine art.

Re: Cast lead vintage weapons

Yep, old lead reproduction weapons from the 90s. I've seen that display (or one very similar) somewhere before, but I can't remember where. Were they used at toy fairs?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nice Moto Jet! I have a boxed one but the bike has some sun damage so I keep looking out for a replacement one. That's a decent price.

As for the die cast negatives.... wow!!! :shock:

Re: What Rare Items Do You Remeber Opening?

Most of our first wave ESB figures were Palitoy, and I'm pretty sure our SW figures were too, as I remember the cardback. I vividly remember the cardbacks going into a plastic bin bag in the garage along with the other Christmas rubbish, ready for the next bin collection. We also had a Palitoy Land ...

You can post pictures there and I'm sure a few will be able to offer advice.

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

ESB's always been my favourite for as long as I can remember. Even as I kid I remember being so frustrated about the gap between it being at the cinema and on TV. I remember being completely entranced as an 8 year old when it was released; I loved Star Wars but even then this felt like another level...
