Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Whilst ESB is my least favourite of the OT, I simply can't fault it, the only reason it is my least favourite is because I like the other two more :D. Yes agree with the above statement (even if it doesn’t seem like it) - what I’ve tried to do in this thread is highlight the sections in Empire that...

Re: First 12 valuation

I would say JabbaWookie's assessment is pretty much spot on. I completed my first 12 about 3 weeks ago, I overpaid a bit for a couple of them, but the ones I have are true minters (I am picky about that). I would say the whole lot were around the £600 mark, but as I said, I overpaid on about four of...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Empire is also my least favourite of the OT. My order is ANH, RotJ, ESB. I think people like Empire so much because basically everything goes wrong for the rebels, and by the end of the film they are the ones who are worse off. I think this creates a more emotional anchor-point for the audience &quo...

Re: When was the last time you saw a carded figure out in the wild?

1988 in Blackpool.

I bought three from a guy selling them from a pop-up pasting table on the promenade.

Han Carbonite
Luke Poncho
R2D2 Sensorscope I think was the other one.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer... TONIGHT!!!!

Not getting the hate at all. Think it looks great. Who hates Star Wars more than anyone else? Star Wars fans :( No hate from me, more like indifference really. I watched it, and when it ended I felt nothing really, no excitement, no real interest even though it is Star Wars. I felt the same way abo...

Re: Hoth 2018

In two days I will be heading to Hoth (Finse in Norway) with a few fellow collectors. I'm meeting Gonzalo Diaz in Amsterdam before joining the Fantha Tracks guy in Bergen. Pictures to follow but needless to say I am really excited. Have fun dude, it will be awesome. About 10 years ago I went to Mat...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer... TONIGHT!!!!

Looks rubbish, I don't even think I will bother with the cinema unless it gets rave reviews, probably just wait for the Blu-ray.

Re: UK Customs charges

That's strange, could maybe just be a generic message as the package has reached the point where it goes through with other packages from other non-EU countries?, maybe they will just assess that it's from the EU and let it pass through. I was just thinking that myself. It looks like a generic upda...

Re: Shill bidding?

Does ebay push your maximum bid up in increments? IE: if the auction is currently at £100, the other guy has a maximum of £200, and you put on a maximum of £210. Does ebay test the water in increments Like £110 = fail, £120 = fail, £130 = fail etc right up to £210 which would take highest bidder. Be...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer... TONIGHT!!!!

Hmm, I thought this was Rogue Two. Even the music is the same and builds to a crescendo exactly like the Rogue One trailer. Jyn Erso was captured and interrogated "state your name for the record". Han Solo is the same at the end of this teaser "your name?". Sorry, I'm just unabl...
