When you do finally leave him feedback, wouldn't it be a terrible shame if you accidentally clicked the 'Negative' button? :lol:

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

More interesting stuff, thank you :-) I have been doing a little searching of my own, and on the excellent trilogo.info site, there is a photo of a carded French 'Tri-logo' Fett (the card is actually a French Jedi card, and the article explains very nicely why it's actually inaccurate to describe su...

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

i can completely confirm that there was not an imperial commander as i only picked him up recently, and one IG88. its also worth mentioning that the sixteen figures perfectly matched the 17 weapons (greedy IG88 has two remember) that were present and as it was found in my grandmothers house when sh...

Re: spot the hidden treasure

hey i did say it'd turn out to be a fake, in the second picture you can see the bottom edge is uneven where its been cut... amazing what idiots will bid on, amazing what people will pull to boost their sales..... To be clear, I certainly wasn't having a go at you; I was making a joke. You did indee...

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

i started collecting a few years ago, when i found my sadly no longer with us dads childhood figures. he only had 16 figures but kept all the original weapons in a tin (very ocd of an 8 year old) one of which was an ig88 and several others who had imperial blasters, including DSC and stormtrooper. ...

Re: spot the hidden treasure

If by 'Spot the hidden treasure', you mean 'Spot the obvious cut-down Ben cape', then I agree with you :wink:

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

A couple of years ago I really wanted a solid black blaster for my Luke stormie. I paid 80 quid for it. :shock: It arrived. I noted that it was solid black. Unlike the one I had for him already, which also looked black most of the time, albeit a bit more blue under light. It was an underwhelming pu...

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

Thanks for the replies so far. I would like to make it clear that I am well aware of there being a whole spectrum of shades available within each main 'colour', doubtless largely due to the inconsistent amount of dye that made it into the final plastic (hence aussiejames' spectacular pale marbled bl...

Imperial Blaster Colour Question

As we know, the vintage Imperial blaster came in a range of darker shades, ranging from very dark blue, through very dark green to true black. They all appear very dark, indeed often black, unless held up to the light. However as we also know, this blaster came in a much lighter shade of blue as wel...

Re: Palitoy 30, 41 & 45a MOC

The Han Bespin is definitely a reseal, albeit quite a well done one. You can see where it has been opened down the left-hand side of the bubble, plus the footer is missing, which is always a giveaway if the bubble is sealed. Having said that, it's still a nice looking piece. Value is always tricky w...

Re: Haslab Khetanna

Jedi Temple Archives are trying to get Hasbro's attention regarding opening up Haslab to collectors outside the US. Who knows if it will work but if you are interested in a Sail Barge and future Haslab products its worth adding your name to this: http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2018-02-18-please-...
