Re: Valuation needed on ESB carded figures 2

Darren Simpson had a Ben up for sale in the same state for £450 at ce3. I did a reseal job on my old one Max, sold it for about£50/60 from memory, though I could be wrong. A cardback will sell for that - let alone one with an original bubble still attached. Darren was definitely asking in that regi...

I’d be interested in Ben when you sell.

Re: Do you post after having a drink?

I don’t think Jon posted for support, although I’ll join others here in saying that Jon is a real life non-SW friend as well as a collecting buddy. I never hear him saying anything bad about anybody so the situation with Wreck it Ralph must have been really bad. Anthony - when I met you, you seemed ...

I don’t think that’s the case mate. There are some big amounts still outstanding as far as I know... and that’s just of the collectors on here and Facebook.

Re: Palitoy 20-backs with damaged bubbles

Hi maxf, that is absolutely my intention and why I flagged them up here in the first place - I've just spent the whole morning taking some better photos so that I can pop them in the Items for Sale thread! In the event that any of them are left over, I'll take the plunge and stick them up on eBay. ...

Given the 2 pages of advice you've had, it would be nice if you offered them here first!

Re: Palitoy 20-backs with damaged bubbles

I think you'd average £100 each for the opened SW cards - no idea on the last 17, but probably not a massive premium over mint loose as most collectors are looking for loose over cheap carded.

Bloody hell mate - that's rough! Glad she came through and hope she's 100% now. I don't blame you letting that focus your mind.

Re: 2017 Collecting Goals, hopes and dreams

I'd like to add another Meccano 20bk to my collection, complete my loose run (paploo, romba, blue snaggletooth and vinyl Jawa to go), and add to my Palitoy run - I've a few tough ones to go, so adding one or two of these would be great. Keep going to shows, keep meeting up with friends and maybe ma...

Re: The beginning of the end?

I saw one post the other day from a guy selling up his collection because he has the chance to buy a classic car he always wanted. I saw that too - I wonder if it was a 250GTO, or a Morris Marina! I sold a few bits recently, hit a brick wall with finishing a run and needed to free up some space, so...

Re: The beginning of the end?

I don't see it as the beginning of the end at all! A stable market is a good thing - rapid price rises and crazy bidders for relatively common items, while fun to look at, don't do us any favours as collectors. We are probably going into a phase of stability - some of the crazy prices are back down ...

Same as R5 I'd bet, maybe a touch lower.

Re: What are Your Favourite & Least Favourite Vintage Weapons / Accessories?

Least favourite is probably Zuckuss' rifle... straight out of the GI Joe scrapbook. Maybe Boushh's gunstaffpole.

Best is probably Yoda's little belt/coat and snake - just great!
