Re: Dose anyone remember a vintage figure shop in Coventry?

I remember Barnaby's or Barnby's.

The price tag was on the box of one of my Cherilea Action Man boxes before I sold it.

We lived in Rugby and my mum would take me to Cov sometimes.

I remember mum buying me the Batman with magnets on his hands and feet.

Re: Star Wars to Action Force

I’m like Edd. I moved from Star Wars to Transformers, He-man and M.A.S.K. but can’t for the life of me remember the exact order. My best mate had Action Force though so I did play with it. It is hard to remember exactly. I think i may have been something like this: Very early days of Matchbox and C...

Re: Vehicle parts giveaway

Looks like you've got a Transformers rocket amongst the Action Force stuff and the mortar and flame thrower from A-Team.
The silver weapons are from some Britain's figures.

Very generous of you.

Re: Price sticker removal.....growing in popularity??

I like to see stickers on a card. However, it can put me off buying a card/MOC if the sticker covers the face of the photo.
Saying that, I'd never remove it and agree it adds history.

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? SPOILERS

I thought it was enjoyable overall. They filled in all the necessary bits like meeting Chewbacca, Lando, winning the Falcon, etc. However, I felt like I didn't find out as much about the character as I would have liked. I didn't like Lando's femenist robot with the Captain Phasma voice. Interesting ...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

If pushed I would probably say ESB is my favourite, but that doesn't mean I think the other two (yes there are only three Star Wars films) are inferior. All three are masterpieces, and very different. ESB has the best sabre fight IMO - not the most technical, but that old saying "less is more....

Re: Vintage in Tokyo

Did I just read that comment "rent a glass case to sell things in their shop for a fee" ? What an interesting and really cool idea, iv'e never heard of a shop doing that before. This quite common in antique shops in this country, often in the large ones. Can't believe iv'e never heard of ...

Are those modern QR code shop stickers on all the MOC's? :shock:


They are I'm afraid.
I have bought there before and the stickers do come off easily, but nonetheless would prefer them not to put the stickers on at all.

The last lot of photos are taken from there.

The first lot from a shopping centre called Nakano Broadway.
The second from shops in Akihabara and Ueno.

The shops are Robot Robot, Toy Yamashiroya, and Mandrake is the first.
