Re: Cardback lifting?

I used to work in a cardboard factory many years ago (not fun) and yes its delamination caused by cardboard getting damp then drying with a wave in the card. The dampening/damaging of the glue along with the pressure of the subsequent wave forces the two (or three) layers in the card to separate.

Re: Is Kenner worth more than Palitoy?

In most cases palitoy worth more, especially logod stuff. However, crystal clear bubble Kenner Jedi cards definitely fetch a big premium these days over many palitoy Jedi cards.

Re: When was the last time you saw a carded figure out in the wild?

Not SW, but in early 90's they had racks of Transformers G1 carded Cliffjumpers for a pound each in B&M Bargains in Southport. I bought two and saved them for many years selling them around 2005 for about £40 each.

Re: Is it still worth buying beaters for a £1 each?

Fatties without any accessories like dengar, Bib, chirpa and logray, rancor keeper etc are effectively write offs as the postage costs more than they are worth. That's if selling online. Any beater bought in person for a pound (no postage to worry about) is ok I suppose. I just don't bother with any...

Re: Modern MOC 'investing'

It was purchased in error I believe by some one who was thinking it was the dagobah Luke that was rare when it was actually the original like with SS/LT. The only modern I have left is the original nine on trilogo cards and a mail away Han stormtrooper and Ben ghost. Along with a 1995 header it make...

Re: Is it still worth buying beaters for a £1 each?

Think it depends on the circumstances. If I saw beaters on eBay for £1 with free post id probably leave them but if in a charity shop or jumble sale I'd snap them up and be really pleased with myself.

Then I'd give them to my kids to play with.

Re: MOC Autographed or noit?

Definitely a no. I don't even really associate the actors with the figures. Especially pointless with non human characters where you can't even see their faces. Could literally be anyone in that Klaatu outfit
