Re: WATCH OUT THREAD – ANOTHER FAKE ITEM DISCOVERED

Proven fake....won't refund...what's to be perturbed about? It's not about the person, their reputation, or people's experiences whether friends or acquaintances etc it's a fake, needs to be refunded, autopsies.can come afterwards IMO. Facts and reputations should not be blurred, opinions, conjectur...

Re: WATCH OUT THREAD – ANOTHER FAKE ITEM DISCOVERED

This is very sad to see mate, very worrying indeed for collectors and potential collectors of baggies and MP s. Can't believe you've been stung again bud, and the caveat emptor being thrown at you. Hopefully the right and decent thing will happen, as others have said, thank you for highlighting for ...

Re: Some of the characters in Star Wars had their arm broken in the films

I thought the post was quite humerus, maybe poster is a lunate and taking the pisiform though? I suppose forearm is forewarned when approving these posts.

Anyway thespians break a leg not an arm tibia fair, do they not?

Re: Palitoy landfill

Filming this would knock Time Team into a cocked hat ( sorry Baldrick!)

Would make a great documentary for SW collecting fans and Palitoy fans alike.

Re: Full MOC run

That's it in a nutshell, I've been reading posts and posting myself for years now, and that little nugget nails it for me " go with your heart...not your collector head". Your a real life Yoda with that comment. Seriously though, that's it for me, go with your heart, don't be clouded by wh...

At the time kids had figures de...

Re: Princess Leia Boushh Card Split

General rule of thumb seems to be the value of the items I.e figure with complete accessories + cardback Then the desire ability of the piece ( I.e. LFB 12 back with figure and sliced bubble would command higher prices) Again it's all about what collectors want, in my case open bubbles let me collec...

Re: Response to Claims

Yep very sad indeed.

There are a number of FB Baggie groups one of which I think is run by Frank, my advice if you are looking to addbaggies/ mailers to your collection then this is the way to go to avoid getting stung! Safe havens with trustworthy collectors as always is the way to go
