Re: Rocket Fett, anyone?

Rocket fett jumps out of reach again... at that kind of money I’d sooner have a chunky deposit on a Porsche gt3. The last RF sold for something like $40k... last year IIRC. I’ve a feeling these buyers are the types who would spend $xxxk on a comic, so this is probably a comparative bargain. Dotcom b...

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...

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!

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 ...
