Thanks. I love the inserts all most as much as the boxes themselves. They really make the piece. And the instructions, leaflets and other accompanying paraphernalia help to tell a story of the time.


Absolutely, great piece of history there. :)

And no Mini99, not got any of those but the artwork looks great.

Right I reckon this will be my last post for a while in latest acquisitions... Finally joined the VCJ club thanks to a very reasonably priced offer on FB. The little fella turned up in the post today and he’s in fabulous condition, not a scratch on him, in part to the ”above and beyond” packaging... which is just as well as the parcel force delivery man dropped it on the floor as soon as he got out of the van!

Lovely VCJ! Probably one of the biggest minefields in loose collecting. Still looking to pick up a nice loose one myself.

Fresh in from Spain and in lovely condition, my trilogo collection has just gotten a little bit bigger. :)

If anyone knows anything about why this has this particular punch style let me know, I only have 2 cards with this 'thin/long' punch in my collection, and both of these cards also have a matte finish instead of glossy like all my other trilogo's, I think this is a Palitoy but i'm not 100% sure.
