Re: Best way to flatten curved cardback?

thanks for the advice! its just cardback without bubble (not a MOC) so i'll give the book a go... If this is the case, perhaps just put it in a toploader? You will need to make sure the size is right, but here's an example if you've not heard of them before: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultra-Pro-Toplo...

Re: Best way to flatten curved cardback?

I wouldn't advise that. You're likely to get an impression of the tea towel on the litho and also you're cardback may end up smelling of baked beans and who's going to take Darth Vader seriously when he has the whiff of Heinz about him? If you don't mind the wait, just place some heavy books across...

Best way to flatten curved cardback?

Hi gang,
Anyone got any tips on what's the best way to flatten out a warped/curved cardback?
Anyone tried ironing them under a tea towel? Or would that ruin them?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks! :D

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

I couldn't resist this cute little Hera pop figure the other day... 20170206_000407.jpg And my wife bought me this lego for my birthday. I've been a fan of Grand Admiral Thrawn for years but apparently until she bought this and saw the name written down she's always thought he was called Grandad Mil...

I've got a Logray staff, satchel and headdress. No idea if they're Lily Ledy or not. What's the distinguishing feature??


From what I've read, the lili ledy logray has:

A hood with a ‘175080’ mark on the inside
A satchel with a “LL” mark on the inside
And a staff with a “LL” mark.

Unusual Tie Fighter Pilot COO Error??

Hey everyone, I was just looking at my loose beater tie fighter pilot and noticed something odd... On the front of his right leg you can clearly see the made in Hong kong coo stamp. Its been partially buffed away but it's still visible. I'm guessing it was stamped on the wrong side then buffed off w...
