Re: Vectis Sale 30th January

Wow, that Fett! I’m going to guess £8,000 hammer price? I doubt it will go anywhere near that price as there is a significant litho tear on the front of the card and as Ian pointed out the limbs are faded so whether you grade it or not it is a lower quality piece and 8k is what you pay for an 80/85...

Re: End of 2018 Collecting Review, 2019 goals

in 2017 I gave up my goal of collecting the first 12 on meccano cards and sold what I had (10 of the 12), opting to focus on my Palitoy run. 2018 continued this; added a good few pieces - MOCs, MISB and Diecast I am collecting the SW, ESB and Jedi waves (so 67 figures). I have 18 to go (plus 3 which...

Panini Jedi stickers

I know the individual stickers go for very little, but are there many unopened packs around or countertop boxes (opened or sealed!) around? Does anybody have a feel for the prices of these? I’d be looking for the UK issue panini packs rather Han topps. I have a lot of memories of collecting these as...

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Are they actually selling though? The hakes one went for 86k and they are famed for crazy pricing. I can’t help but think these sellers are chancing their arm. It doesn’t help when well known owners are blatantly backing up the prices, although whether they’d pay that much who knows. Perhaps I’m jus...

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

Star Wars and Space Lego were the main lines I was bought as a kid - I had a fair bit of both. I also had quite a lot of Britain’s Farm toys. I had a couple of transformers but don’t recal ever getting any bought for me new. I went through a MASK phase and remember getting boulder hill one Christmas...

Re: Elliott Ashton - Memorial Thread

I didn’t know Elliot as well as many others here, but we shared a few good curries as well as texts/emails... mostly after Elliot stopped actively collecting. Funnily enough he was an art guy and I think we had a couple of mutual friends through that hobby too. Top guy who was incredibly kind... RIP...

Couldn’t agree more Spoons. Another nail in the coffin of what was a great hobby.

Re: How Do You Rank The SW Movies Now?

after watching a few recently (thanks ITV2!) I'm kind of in this mindset...

1. Rogue One
2. ESB
3. Jedi/TFA tied
5. ANH
6... all the others.

Re: Proof card guide

No online but buy Mattias’ Book ‘a new proof’. If you haven’t collected them for a while be prepared for a bit of a shock in terms of prices!

Amazing! Have you considered mounting it on a mirror so you get the full star destroyer effect?

Re: General Grumbling

Putting F&F or plus 4% in a sales advert. Just add the cost of the sale on to your price - as a seller there are costs and processing payment is one of them... that’s not a buyers cost. I’ve even seen this on $50k plus prototypes! I might have done this in the past, as the whole world does - but...

Re: What do you do when collecting gets boring?

I’m at the point where the last few bits I need fro my run are pretty hard to find, so could be months (or even years) without adding to my collection soon.

A break is good but not too long so to keep ‘fresh’ I expect I’ll collect something else with a slightly less tight focus.
