Re: Recarding figures for display. Your thoughts...

I’ve yet to see a repro Cardback that was a particularly close match to the real thing. Generally the print seems to be off, especially on the reverse. An option might be to get a cut bubble Cardback and putting a new bubble on the card. I have done this with a couple of RoTJ figures I simply did no...

Re: Is The Last Jedi better than Caravan of Courage?

A studio like Disney does not make films for a set generation, they go as broad on the demographic as possible. So while our kids might show more love than us, they are not the primary target audience. The broad strokes of the Last Jedi are what they are for the purpose of it being as accessible to ...

Vintage v Modern Action Figures - Camp Lando

16B1A6A4-B2C5-4A61-8860-7C2962C27FC4.png How to turn an Action Star Icon into a 70’s sitcom stereotype in one sculpt design. And is he sneezing or sniffing ? How is it possible that so many modern figures are appalling? The Vintage Line has its share of clunkers, but maybe 10% of figures were poor ...

Re: Customs Charges

I’m afraid that those changes seem about right, if you want the item then I would suggest that you just pay up. One reason I don’t buy from the US, dread to think what’s going to happen when we leave Europe, heaven help us buying from there after that! That’s a very good point. I bet we get fucked ...

Re: Customs Charges

Something has occurred to me - what actually happens with a customs check - do they open the box. Open the packaging and have a check ? If they do how do I know they won’t duck about with something that’s 40 years old and damage it - i’ll Pay the fee and have zero comeback.

Re: Customs Charges

I paid the premium as it’s the Canadian Cardback A61B9017-37BD-487D-953D-AD6759815504.png I had one before that I sold for £100 but was a no pop and as this figure is a bit of a focus of mine I went for it, paying a bit of a premium - shipping and now this charge makes me feel it’s less of a “bargai...

Re: Bounty Hunter Capture Log Empire Strikes Back

Thanks. I saw that one. I think, based on the sold items, it’s a little over priced @ £20.

Cheers for the steer though.
