Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 48 LIVE

Edd, fair play to you. And I stand corrected on the price. It didn't even show up as a "or best offer" when I looked at it as I am now well versed with your handy hint of using the ebay.com.au site to check best price :) I do think it's still a sizeable amount for a Palitoy 65 back Fett bu...

Re: What do you do when collecting gets boring?

Unless you really need the money, don't sell up. Over the last 20 years I've lost the collecting bug several times, each time I've sold up, feeling it was the right thing to do. Fast forward a year and the bug is back, only now I have to start from scratch - and as we all know prices rise at an ast...

Re: do ebay have a big problem ?

They include a link to the item you’re looking for in the word ‘listing’ - I suspect it’s there way to try and get more sales. I suspect your right, typical eBay. Jared has suggest that we let eBay know our feelings about this “upgrade”! He has also pointed out that you can still view the original ...

Re: do ebay have a big problem ?

eBay have been pissing about with this for ages depending on your browser, I believe. But yes, it does appear they have now switched to full blown twattery and now when you share a link they simply redirect you to a "similar" auction that's still live.

Re: Pali 65 back Han Hoth

Chris, not unusual for the Palitoy twin stems to have a small crack around the stems. Dependent upon the size of the crack and it's position (likely to get worse) I'd say you could get nearer £100-£110 for him. That load at Gildings were all doing about £160 a piece. I've had one sat on ebay for a f...

Re: Is Kenner worth more than Palitoy?

I think the prices of Kenner stuff has risen a lot over the last couple of years, where as Palitoy was high to start with but hasn't really moved. A lot of the logo Palitoy stuff hasn't changed much in a decade, I watched a few items end on eBay last night that went surprisingly low. There’s a lot ...

Re: Thrawn hunting

Still never seen a Thrawn or even a Stormtrooper in B&M or HB. In fact, the last two B&Ms I’ve been in only sold saw Hotwheels. It must be a southern thing. I’d love to know what the most south a Thrawn has been seen!

Re: Potf2 valuation

On the whole, not much. Problem is although they’re about £4-£7 each, typically, you have to take into account postage at £3, so now need to charge £7-£10 each and that can be a hard sell. Your Freeze Frame Slave Leia is easily £12-15 and your ERG is easily £10-£12. I’ve been selling green carded Sl...

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

Unfortunately the whole thing comes down to maximising value, if an item is worth more without a price sticker then off it comes, very similar to U Grading I guess! ... Or buying the item because you actually get some pleasure out of having it?! :lol: Quite agree. Not everyone’s in it for the money...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story Solo SPOILERS First Reactions

My local Vue has more than halved the amount of midnight screenings (from 12 to 5). Is SW fatigue setting in, or are other factors having an impact (fan boycott etc.)? I'm still interested in seeing it (despite the reviews), but I've thought all along that having a film a year was a big mistake. Th...
