Re: Not a valuation but need an opinion on validity.

Head swap for sure, but I'm not buying the repaint myself. I do a fair few customs and know a few that do, I'm not aware of anyone using spray masks on figures or even airbrushing on that scale. Working with a brush as most customisers do, you wouldn't get the overall look that has been achieved he...

Re: Not a valuation but need an opinion on validity.

Re: Another reproduction figure hits the market, Amanaman.

Re: Tri Logo's

From what Ive seen its not just Trilogos, Palitoy, Meccano, popy, glasslite and every other maker is more desirable/expensive than kenner. I think the reason is there appears to be more Kenner moc than any other make so the laws of supply/demand take over. Also Trilogo bubbles dont yellow so this co...

Woolys always had offers but the Co-Op had massive displays Id try and replicate (terribly) I remember the Hoth and Dagobah displays, they had them made by a model shop and they looked superb. I remember them because they were dismantling them and I wanted a figure ...
