Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Of course there is no justification, but if it sells even at 50% it's set a new record. If it doesn't sell the owner is shielded from any negativity by ZT's shiny ego and back into the collection it goes.

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Also this is THE item that the phrase grail was coined. Not just for loose collectoes but collectors per se.

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Why does someone need to go through a broker for this type of item? I don't get this either. It's 2018, sell it yourself. I can kind of understand why people pay a premium for buying from people like Tom Derby, who have incredible knowledge which adds credibility to pieces when they authenticate th...

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Following this on the 12 Back group, sounds like a number of people think $185K is a reasonable amount for this one in this condition. :shock: And to think you could of bought one for a tenth of the price 10 years ago. That’s one heck of a rate of interest return. One day we might all be sayin*reme...

Re: How does collecting compare to a year ago?

Playing on people's fear a little I think. Definitely. Keep the population under control using biased or misleading information to create fear and promote a particular cause or POV. That's propaganda isnt it? I got into a disagreement with an admin ( who PM'd me ) on Echo Base before I left just fo...

Over the years you just get used to spending more on stuff and as your working career (hopefully) progresses you have a little more disposable income to support it. I remember my first £10, £100, £500 and recently £1k purchases. Each one a milestone, but justified if you are getting a decent deal th...

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

One that always gets to me is that I can spend $100s of dollars for an item online with no issues (via eBay, FaceBook, etc.) but when at an actual toy show, with physical cash in hand (and with the actual item in hand as well), it ALWAYS is much more difficult to justify purchasing said item. Proba...
