Re: General Grumbling

*WARNING. THE FLOWING STATEMENT CONTAINS THEMES OF A GRUMBLING NATURE THAT SOME READERS MAY FIND DISTURBING.* Rude and abrupt messages on eBay really piss me off :evil: Since when were common manners deemed unnecessary? I woke up this morning to a message that simply read, "I'll pay £15 for th...

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...

Re: Watch out: A new eBay scam

It's interesting to see a scam message that starts with "hi mate" instead of "biggest greetings from King Xulu of Nigeria!" which had made spotting scams fairly easy in the past. :lol: Absolutely! The author of this is definitely a Brit. A lazy, poorly educated, lowlife shitbag ...

Watch out: A new eBay scam

Well, this is new to me, and I'm more than a little bit well versed in cybercrime. Appreciate this should go in the eBay section but that only attracts a small minority of users of this forum and it's worth bringing to everyone's attention I received two messages about listings this AM from user &qu...

Re: SWFUK Annual Statistics

Really interesting Edd, thanks for posting up. I suspect the slight reduction seen in the last year has actually been seen across all formats, FB included. Even the bigger groups show a far more noticeable reduction in activity than this place does. And regardless of stats, I consider this place Home.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Outstanding purchases guys! I get more of a thrill reading about bargains in unlikely places than I do buying stuff from regular places for myself! 50p A-Wing Pilot is one of the best finds since about 1995, surely?!

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 47 LAUNCHED

Simon seems to be getting a lot more abuse that Richard these days. Very funny. Appreciate the hard word. Thanks for all the feedback, guys, glad to hear that the latest episode is well received. I would, however, like to highlight the above as the most valid feedback to date, thanks DarthBobby, yo...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

....disappointed to find that Anakin had popped through the bottom of the bubble when I got home, but that could easily have been me rough handling him - still not bad for £50 Mentions also to Stu for palming off that odd 3P0 on me (despite my protestations), Si for stealing £2 and replacing it wit...

Re: Thrawn hunting

I was in Caernarfon the other day and popped into the local HB in the vain hope of something decent for once. My local in Bognor Regis always has a grand total of FA. I walked out chuffed to bits. Bagged a Vader and the dude in white for £1.99 each :) Was so pleased. The only two of those they had. ...

Re: Is it still worth buying beaters for a £1 each?

I took a box of 50 better than beaters to FF in December. They sat there for about 3 hours without a sale. I even gave a couple of kids some. Finally someone wanders up and buy the lot and looks nervous and hesitant about it as if I'm about to tell him they're actually £10 each not £1. On reflection...
