Re: What's your most & least favourite type of SW toys to collect?

Mine's easy. I have an attachment to the things that were difficult to get when I was growing up, ie cantina figures and jawa. I dislike most of the RoTJ figures as they were two a penny when I was a child. It probably just matches my personality type as I tend to be drawn to the things I perceive a...

Re: More flippers than collectors?

Why not sell what you can do without whilst the market is buoyant, hold the profit and be patient. Purchase what you want when the market takes a wobble, which it will at some point. I think nowadays the best asset for a collector is patience!

Re: Best or craziest Star Wars find at a carboot or charity shop

Can't remember any last 17's but could be wrong. Either way, rummaging around boxes of random toys to find a vintage figure will always be a bigger buzz than collecting for me these days!! Clarkspieandchips and I used to hit the car boots in the early 90's and picked up quite a bit of swag. Can't re...
