Re: Latest Acquisitions

So I thought I'd share my last few purchases as won't be putting anything up for a while. The first is the ESB Power Droid 31bk which was literally the last purchase. Sticker/paper residue removed and flattened (thanks Edd). Crystal clear bubble in near mint shape. Really chuffed with it. ESB Power...

Re: Customs Charges

Re: Customs Charges

A MOC I just got from the US arrived with a £15.50 customs charge. The seller had put the value at $30 (it was worth several times more). So the customs charge was almost as much as the item was declared for. Piss-take.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Well done on that Fett Edd. Stands out a mile from what we’re used to seeing from Toni. That bubble is totally different. Congrats on the trilogo Luke Stormy and Pali Hoth Han. 2 high up on my wants. After nothing for around a year I had a little run of buys when the right MOCs came up. These 2 arri...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

My first LA in about a year, and it’s one I’ve wanted for years. I’ve got 2 more MOCs on their way from the US, so a bit of a mini spending spree as things I’ve actually wanted and for the right price have come up recently. The card insert was out of place, but literally 20 seconds with a long shar...

Re: Ackbar Trilogo Hybrid

Do you mean the Palitoy released ROTJ front with Tri logo back, one of the hybrid Mocs. Stand down folks lol. Panic over. Spoke to seller, turns out he had made a mistake. It’s a Tsukedo (Not sure of the spelling) Japanese cardback. Nearly had a heart attack thinking I’d stumbled upon a crazy rare ...

Ackbar Trilogo Hybrid

How rare are these and what would they go for? Can't find any focus collectors to ask. Basically a ROTJ front, and Meccano trilogo rear.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Great pick ups everyone, love the odd ball stuff. I’ve finally added a boxed Speeder Bike to the collection, unused contents. Very happy with it. Also managed to add a couple of debut 65 backs, checked my list and realised I only need 3 now to complete the 65 Back Kenner debut run. Nice going. Am w...
