Re: Hunch Back Cloud Car Pilot

Nobody really knows why this little guy is the way he is, all we really know is how he got this way probably was not good. Maybe he was thrown in an Oven or Microwave, Maybe he has not got enough plastic in him, Maybe he was owned by a Chinese or Japanese collector who made him Bow a lot, Maybe he's...

Re: Any Bubble Optimists out there?

So for Ideal storage conditions should you try to remove all the moisture from the room?

If you did have a way of regulating the temperature in the room with air conditioning or similar device what would be the ideal temperature?

I am glad I am not the only addict on here, I just hope I don't have to wait too long for something and have to go Cold Turkey!

Re: Summer Lull

I have money to spend and I can't find anything with a Palitoy Logo on it to buy. If this is normal for the summer then I can't wait for the winter! At the moment I think I would stand a better chance in finding a living Triceratops than I would finding any decent MOC to buy!

Re: Does size matter?

I don't display my MOC yet so they are all stored in boxes in a cupboard which is a little sad I know. Given my bubble paranoia when I do display them I am going to try and display them flat which will reduce my display space. So I think I would probably avoid larger items like AT AT or Imperial Shu...

I don't get this, is there a punch line, or can't I see the wood for the trees!

Re: Any Bubble Optimists out there?

Is Sunlight and Temperature Variations the real Danger to Bubbles or Man?

I think you will find AFA are responsible for far more permanent bubble damage than Sunlight or Temperature Variations!

Re: Any Bubble Optimists out there?

I think it is fare to say I am about as bubble pessimistic as you can be! After just over a month of collecting and a significant expenditure I read a post on Rebelscum talking about the weight of the figure contributing/causing the bubble to fall off when the MOC is stored vertically sending me int...

Re: What do you do when you hit a Brick Wall?

No unfortunately I never received any pictures or prices which is why I don't think it was a Scam. What his motivation was I am unsure, it happened before the last Vectis Auction so maybe he thought if I thought I had a deal with him I would not bid in the Auction but that is nothing more than a hyp...

Re: Has the world gone mad!?

Just completely guessing here, but apart from it being money motivated and also grading them due to the packaging being very poor, i'm thinking maybe some collectors who have that 'collectors OCD' in having a perfect looking collection have them U graded so they're more displayable next to all thei...

Re: Prototype Box Flats

If you had the money would you still buy it or would you buy something else?

Re: What do you do when you hit a Brick Wall?

I only told part of the story earlier and thinking about it during the night I think what happened on rebelscum a couple of months ago is what sent me spiralling downwards. I had a post on rebelscum for a lot of Rare items not really expecting anyone to respond. A couple of weeks later I get a PM fr...

Re: What do you do when you hit a Brick Wall?

I can't say I enjoy collecting mainly because of the price of everything. I enjoy owning the pieces but do not enjoy the buying off them, for me it is a bitter/sweet experience. I often worry and feel nauseous after buying things the bigger the purchase the worse I feel but after time it passes and...

Re: What do you do when you hit a Brick Wall?

I feel like crap when I buy them because they are so expensive and the capital outlaw is so high but then I feel good owning them. The experience will never be all good for me especially since the price of these things seems to be going up. If I want to collect what I collect then I have to accept t...
