Re: FORUM FIGURE 2018 - ROUND 3 - MATCH 5

This one's really, really hard as I like both figures a lot. R2 is one of the first 12, and will always be special to me, but my memories of playing with the Snowtrooper and his super-cool half-cape / kama win him this round for me.

The Biker Scout is probably the better sculpt, but he doesn't drive a freaking AT-AT! Go Driver! :-)

It's another close one, but it's Mr Fett for me.

Re: Insurance for collectors.

As for keeping a photo portfolio and list of prices paid, how do you “prove” that these were not pictures lifted off the internet, and the prices made up? You could always take a photo of you standing next to your collection holding a current copy of a newspaper. That should prove you've not lifted...

Re: Insurance for collectors.

I have asked this question here before myself. There are indeed specialist collectibles insurers out there who would be very happy to insure you, however when I made enquiries a couple of years ago of my own insurance company and explained what it was I was trying to insure, they really weren't conc...

Re: Wavy vinyl cape fix?

Took it out the oven 1 day early, if 7 days is gonna work then surely 6 will. Very slightest hint of where the kink/wave used to be but i'm not losing sleep over that, it's practically flat and looks amazing now. Thanks for the advice guys on this, it's worked a treat. :) DSCF8125.JPG That looks te...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 3, 2018, Part 2/2

Sadly, I too never collected the 12 inch toys. However, there are some terrific sculpts in the range (the Han, Luke, Leia and Ben are simply outstanding likenesses), so hopefully some other members with a little more shelf space than me will be able and willing to share their Jawa images with the Fo...

'Lumpy black blob!' :lol: It's hard to disagree with that description, as it isn't exactly a brilliant sculpt. However, for me I think the blob still just edges it over the Box ;-)

Re: The vagaries of graded figs

Snake bite indeed , seems quite an apt name given your reply. Its akin to someone entering a room with an ak47 , clearing the room and then declaring peace. Wow, just wow. I will reply later when ive time but to say your reply was a woosh moment would be an underststement. Well, judging from your i...

Re: odd listing title

This is 100% fake. It has a Europunch for starters, it's clearly been inkjet printed and the bubble is held on with double-sided tape! What a lot of bullshit the conman selling this is spouting!... From the 1980's my ass! And he 'came across this figure inside my old bedroom at parents house'... Wel...
