Re: Is Star Wars only for the rich ?

No, but as with anyhing in life it's about priorities - plenty of people drive around in a £20k car and aren't rich. If they decided to run a 10k car instead that's a good few palitoy 12bks in change. I'm not rich by any means - I've managed to put together an ok collection and I know people with 'n...

Re: When did collecting become so aggressive?

Yeah, that would be the brexit meltdown every one predicted. Everyone's an economist. :roll: Given the GBP is still depressed by a good 10-15% against almost every other major currency I'd say they were still right. Yes, I would say the weak dollar is down to a couple of fools in the current admini...

Re: Trade against Cash

Trades for pre-production, cold hard cash for everything else.

Re: End of 2017 Onto 2018

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. I am collecting the SW, ESB and Jedi waves (so 67 figures). I have 18 to go (plus 3 which need upgrading). In 2018 I'd like to get this down to under 10 if I c...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

My last buys of the year arrived today. I’ve had a really great year adding to my palitoy run and consider myself really lucky to have added these:

41 back lobot and at-at driver and 45a cloud car pilot... they put me at over half way now!

Is there a customs ref number - this will sometimes track?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

My Christmas present (to myself) arrived and I couldn’t resist opening it... 41bk Palitoy Boba Fett 6D025DFC-3E71-4F20-915C-2C3B204BD9AA.jpeg And here he is with my other recent acquisitions: 130D617B-3E37-4A82-B95F-17590A20594C.jpeg (Fx7 has a cut bubble sadly and IG88 has been very carefully opene...

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...

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. ...

Re: Palitoy 20-backs with damaged bubbles

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