Re: Latest Acquisitions

I wonder why Marvel gave both Star Wars A New Hope and Return of The Jedi their own titles but not Empire Strikes Back, I guess they considered it less significant.

Re: Is there anything more annoying than...

As a Pro Grading collector I have never really understood the Loose U Grading thing as just because the figure is sealed does not mean it will get a high grade so I presume these people just want the U on the grade sticker. Does Loose U Grading still happen as I believe UKG & AFA have stopped do...

Re: Becoming desensitised to money due to collecting?

Sometimes I wish I could desensitise myself as I usually feel anxious before I buy something and guilty afterwards. I ask myself am I paying too much, will my money be safe in the purchase, could I sell it for the same price I payed for it. I can afford to buy the things I buy but it takes me a coup...

Re: How does collecting compare to a year ago?

For me it is completely dead, I may as well be trying to collect MOC's in the middle of the Sahara! Last year was very busy buying year for me but this year has been very thin on the ground and I have not bought a MOC in months. Thankfully I have started collecting comics as well now so hopefully th...

Re: Is This Legit? Are CAS Grading Toy Toni MOCs?

I know TT isn't very popular but would the items he sold still be classed as vintage?

Re: Is This Legit? Are CAS Grading Toy Toni MOCs?

When they grade Repo's or TT's do they state it on the grading label?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

My Vectis purchase arrived today, have been after a nice one of these on either a Jedi or POTF card for ages as it’s one of my favourite card backs. Looks immense with the clear bubble too. 3F2A5C8D-9F7C-4E5E-B88B-B8775F993069.jpeg Beautiful colours on this piece, the clear bubble makes such a diff...

Re: Cardback restoration

Great work gents, can't wait to see some more :D This is an old picture of mine but I mounted these two seal polity 12 back cut cards to their card backs. It took me ages trying to find the right card back with very little damage so that I could mount these but it's the closest I have now to owning...

Re: Rarity perception

In 2018 with eBay, Facebook and forums nothing is really rare, only expensive. There are very few one of a kind items, even for prototypes. The biggest challenge is often getting collectors to part with items, which means they are not rare but simply hard to obtain (eg anything Boba Fett related.) ...

Re: So are all collectors the same?

Ive been thinking about this for a bit, and it really does make a good point of discussion. In my past I have come across certain collectors who look down upon others for collecting on a budget. I remember someone saying to me a good few years back that someone he knew had stated that he wasn't a '...

Re: General Grumbling

Being critised for using a dealer to buy or sell stuff, surely collectors should be free to buy and sell as they wish.
