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

Circa 1992 in Forbidden Planet in London. They had a whole rack of Tri-Logo MOCs, mostly ewoks, and I remember thinking the prices were outrageous... £8.99 if memory serves! They also had some Jedi boxed AT-AT's, which I think were around £50-£60, but I'm half-guessing on that price after all this t...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 16, 2018, Part 2/2

Thanks for that great concise review on both playsets. I knew that they were different, but as I don’t collect these had never realised how different the two sets were. I assume that the Kenner one was “better” quality as they would not have got away with a cheaper set in the USA? Thanks :-) I beli...

Re: Legacy falcon paintjob, also x wing, a bit of paint goes a long way

That's some stellar work, Grinchy! I can't believe how much better they look with the weathering. It makes me wish Hasbro had bothered trying to do something similar in the first place.

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 16, 2018, Part 2/2

OK Lars, since you didn't want to separate the Kenner and Palitoy versions of The Land of the Jawas playsets, here are my pair. For anyone unfamiliar with the differences between the 2 sets, it's not just the packaging that's different. Every single aspect of the Palitoy version is different to the ...

Re: Customs Charges

Years ago, Jim Stevenson told me a sorry tale about a very rare and valuable mint vintage box he was sent from America. I can't remember exactly what he said it was, but apparently it came flat packed and you assembled it yourself (and btw, if anyone can work out what it might be, I'd love to know!)...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 15, 2018, Part 1/2

I bought my first Snowspeeder aged 9 when on holiday at Loch Ness in 1981. Sadly that particular example came with a missing part, so it had to go back to the toy shop and I bought a Turret and Probot playset instead as they had sold out of Snowspeeders. It took me a while, but I eventually managed...

Re: Modern MOC 'investing'

As for putting together a full carded run, I hope you literally mean just the POTF2 figure line rather than the entire modern line :-D. The former is quite achievable, but the latter would be a truly enormous undertaking due to the sheer number of figures released! Ha ha - definitely the former, wi...

Re: Modern MOC 'investing'

I picked up a couple back in the day but for curiosity rather than anything else. I am strangley drawn to POTF2 these days and can see my self putting a carded run together, especially with the current prices of vintage. I think there are others with a similar view and we may start seeing modern in...

Re: £1000 for a loose Anakin

And the listing said it was 'rare'. Too bad it ended before I had a chance to bid on this bargain.
