Re: help please!

Re: Royal Mail Star Wars 40th Anniversary Collector's Set

It does look a great set.
I was debating this or the framed set... Still not sure.

I've seen the clip of the boxing of the x-wing before.
They didn't mess about back then with throwing stuff around.

Re: Princess leia autograph

Sorry to see it's a fake.
The one on eBay is exactly the same so probably he's running a few of these off.

Re: My book Star Wars: The Phenomenon in Britain is available as a pre-order.

Great stuff.
Is it reviewed in the current edition of Starburst?

I don't know if you use Instagram but there's a bloke I follow on there @theknnerboy I think he's based in Norway but is a well-known collector of modern and vintage.
He might be worth contacting.

Re: At what age does it drop off?

That must have been amazing to come back home after all those years to unearth what's basically a time capsule of your childhood. I think i'd be too emotional to even want to go up there and start looking at it all :cry: :cry: Great read! Thanks mate. Yeah, there's a lot of stuff, I post it now and...

Re: At what age does it drop off?

My dad put all my toys in the loft through the mid -late 80's. My interest in Star Wars remained, but only the original films. I lived in Tokyo for years and it was there, because of the huge collectors market, that I began to have an interest in stuff from my childhood. There is vintage stuff in ma...

Re: Valuation Requests and PM Deals

Richard_H, after just going over the thread again I do understand your frustration stating your interest and pricing it up all in the first reply. It appears the valuation thread can be used by other members to gauge the suggested price then up it slightly or work out a deal in a PM (not completely ...

Re: Valuation Requests and PM Deals

I have typed in a valuation thread along the lines of "I'd be interested when you have a price..." as it's a genuine interest. This I've done for a couple of reasons: Firstly to encourage the seller to sell on here and not use this place as a gauge for eBay, like the Type one seller writte...

Re: Barry potter toy fair NEC

Defo do Early Bird if buying at NEC. I'm hoping to have a stall there in August. I'm my previous visits, I've done about 50% of my sales in the first 30 minutes of setting up Good luck! I'm sure I bought off your stall at the one early in the year. Emperor mailer and my mate bought an ugnaught.
