Re: First ever toys as a collector?

Not including buying and receiving toys for the sole purposes of playing with (so early 80s) my first purchase as a "collector" would have been at a toy fair with my dad, who went for stuff for his model train set. I saw people selling all these old Star Wars toys and I couldn't believe th...

Re: What's the most underrated Star Wars toy?

I always quite liked the Anakin Skywalker figure. Much maligned, but I think it is a nice sculpt and I enjoyed recreating the "ghost" scene at the end of ROTJ :)

Re: 70s/80s Toy Shops

It was Redgates in Sheffield for me. It was just pure heaven visiting every Saturday and I think most of my Star Wars toys came from there. It closed a few years back and is now a TKMaxx I think... Maybe, just maybe, there are some unopened Palitoy boxes stashed in a corner of the basement... redgat...

Re: Star Wars Toy in the shops ?

Slightly off topic - sorry - but if anyone has a cardback or MOC with a "Redgates" price sticker, would love to buy one, as that was where my childhood figures came from :)

Re: When was the last time (first time round1) you spotted the original toys?

I remember seeing the last 17 in Redgates in Sheffield - and picked up Luke Stormie and a couple of others. Remember seeing Yak Face and thinking that it was a pointless figure, so didn't get it :( I also saw the POTF range there later, but was not so interested, so didn't get any, but was tempted b...

Re: What did everyone have in their childhood collection?

Nearly all the figures - but like a lot of kids, passed on some of the last 17. Luckily kept all my figures and still have them nicely displayed now :D Unfortunately, I didn't keep any of the ships - but had a good few: Falcon X-Wing Snowspeeder Hoth Attack Base DV Star Destroyer Slave 1 Twin Pod Cl...

Re: Rogue One makes Force Awakens weaker...

I am hugely happy we get new SW films every year :) Am lapping up all the new tidbits about Last Jedi!

And debating, analysing, discussing - that's all part of the fun :) Who liked what, who didn't, why they did this, why not, who is who etc. That's what makes it so cool :D

Re: Rogue One makes Force Awakens weaker...

Just because I am now an adult, I fail to see why I can't critique a film any more. As I said, I think TFA is a fun film, some great moments and I really liked the characters and performances. It was just that element that bothered me and I thought RO made it seem more obvious. Next time I wil be su...

Bah. They just announced there won't be a Celebration 2018. Word is that it will then most likely be US again in 2019 :x

Yeah, his Star Wars book is good - but let's be honest, he will never better "Bondage Slave Virgin". Still a classic after all these years...

Rogue One makes Force Awakens weaker...

Just re-watched Force Awakens. I still think it is a fun flick, with some great nostalgic pieces, but the thing that always bothered me was how "easy" it was to destroy Starkiller base. I think Rogue One now makes that even more apparent. We see in this movie just what the Rebellion had to...
