Re: Price sticker removal.....growing in popularity??

Personally I don't like price stickers much but I have them on a few pieces in my collection as I could not get the pieces without them as they were part of collections I bought. I think when collectors decide to sell then their priorities change and maximising value becomes key and historical impo...

Re: Price sticker removal.....growing in popularity??

One of the collections I bought the collector actively tried to remove price stickers by soaking the stickers in lighter fluid, at least that was the method he explained to me. This was done before I bought the collection so I presume he did this to maximise the value of the collection.

Re: General Grumbling

I find the anti grading brigade quite comical as many of them buy graded pieces and crack them open afterwards thereby supporting the very industry they allegedly hate. Then you have another group who are anti grading right up to the point where they want to sell and all those anti grading posts are...

Re: General Grumbling

I hate all the private sales as it makes it impossible to determine whether you have over payed or not. There are virtually no recorded sales for rare Palitoy MOC.

Re: Time to call it a day.

I have been searching and I am sorry if I have bumped this thread and it's not suitable. Is there a 'Pickup,' collecting thread? I could only find this regarding losing the collecting Star Wars bug. I am going through this stage myself at the moment. Nothing serious just considering selling everyth...

Re: General Grumbling

I am forever grumbling about the lack of MOC Palitoy Logo'd stuff to buy, it doesn't get me anywhere but sometimes I feel the need to moan about it. I remember your posts about trying to complete your collection. Out of curiosity did you stop and sell up? Or are you still holding out? From what I r...
