Re: SWF at Echo Live - add names here - 20th Oct, Redditch.

Yeah I got a lovely minty loose Imperial Dignitary and a Tri Logo MOC Wicket. The card is warped so it’s under 10 books flattening out. Had a great time, looking forward to the next one. Are you off down the car boot sales tomorrow?

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 52 LAUNCHED

First off respect and thanks to Jez for making the podcast, that’s true devotion. Well done lads. Great episode this month. I’m really building my hopes up for the landfill. Even if they found a melted broken Ree Yees leg I’d be over joyed. As it says in the trailer... it’s treasure hunting. I’ve a ...

On your recommendation I just received this off eBay. What a great little book. Does anyone know were the prices accurate at the time it came out?

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

I think we need to make a new rule and call it the ‘Vintage Guilt Free Equation’. The equation states: You can spend the total of one week’s salary per year on Vintage Star Wars Toys GUILT FREE... beyond that you must live with the shame and self flagellate as you see fit. :lol: That way you can wei...

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

Prices are going up and if you want to continue collecting you have to accept that. You only live once Edd. It’s an expensive hobby but if you work hard you deserve an occasional treat. Obviously we should all spend within our means but it’s no different to any hobby. I feel like I never see any of ...

Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

Wow, thats funny. I can remember the excitement of the new Argos catalogue coming out... (My mother still goes to Newcastle to collect one). Flicking to the back and looking at all of the toys, I didn't see much Star wars either, maybe they didn't need to advertise it? My mother had a Freemans catal...

Re: My bible for many years, and still a good friend...

Sansweets Action figure archive is my favourite collecting book. I love the way it’s set out, the pictures are so clear and a good size. It was my Bridge back into collecting, I got given the book and it made me fish out my collection from the loft. I still read it sometimes when I’m eating my break...

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

My thoughts are that plastic quality is the number one factor, with off gassing number two and environmental conditions either speeding up or delaying the deterioration. In 75 years will any still be clear, I don't think so. Which will last longest? Probably early SW and Trilogo as so far these see...

Maybe take the Rebel Transport off the list, no one will vote for it anyway :lol:

Great idea for a poll. Looking forward to it.

Re: Anyone at a loose end in town on 20th September.

Great auction, very good atmosphere.

Here’s the catalogue with prices added. Solo jacket didn’t sell as didn’t meet reserve.
