Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 41, 2018, Part 2/2

Sorry Lars. As you know, I don't collect Ewoks figures, but hopefully someone reading this can come to the rescue and share a picture of His Majesty with the rest of us :wink:

Re: Star Wars to Action Force

Do you remember copying “pokes” from mags into spectrum game codes to get extra lives etc? What was the Spectrum mag called? I do! There were some brilliant POKES available for 'Jet Set Willy' on the Spectrum :-D My brother and I also once wasted an entire day painstakingly programming in the 'miss...

Re: I didnt know this...

Very interesting, thank you for posting this. I wasn't aware of this either, and it's always great to discover new things about these toys after all these years :-). Perhaps Kenner did this deliberately, but my guess is that it's probably just coincidence, but still a fun one to know. It reminds me ...

Nice loose collection Lars, along with cardback and coin.
This is one that I can contribute to, so here’s mine.

Very nice, Nick! Looks like you have a clearer bubble than mine :-)

When I finally got one, I was delighted to find he had a opening mouth mechanism, which worked really well! :D I was rather less impressed with his arms which broke off if you so much as thought about looking at them! :roll Jeremy, sorry to break it to ya, but he’s a she :lol: Jay, sorry to break i...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 41, 2018, Part 1/2

The lanky torture droid today, Lars? OK then! EV-9D9 was one of those figures I had no idea Kenner even made back in the 80's. I'm afraid I'd stopped collecting the toys when Jedi came out as I thought I was too old for them when I reached the lofty age of eleven! :lol: I did still keep an eye on th...

Re: Question On Boxes And Inserts Etc When We Were Kids

I was one of those weird kids who kept boxes and actually put his toys back in them. :lol: All my SW vehicles were sold with their boxes, and most of the other toys I have from my childhood are still boxed! I think it's because I used to love looking at toys in the shops and liked the idea of boxin...

Re: Question On Boxes And Inserts Etc When We Were Kids

I was a kid. They were toys. I gave not one single moment's thought to the packaging, just like most children. The packets were opened, the toys removed and the packaging binned. I wanted the toys, not the boxes. And besides, my mother wouldn't have let me keep a load of 'useless' cardboard to clutt...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 7, 2018, Part 2/2

Just 'plugging a gap', so to speak. My apologies for not posting this sooner. I should have done so ages ago, but better late than never, hopefully! Here's my Kenner Death Star. The box isn't terrible, but could also be quite a bit better. I'm not complaining though as I'm just happy to have one :-...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 6, 2018, Part 1/2

Another gap being belatedly filled! Thanks to all the previous posters for sharing their playsets, and my apologies for the late posting of mine. I never owned an Imperial Attack Base as a child. I was always a 'Turret and Probot' boy myself, as those things were actually in the film, unlike the sim...
