Didn't fancy playing with your toys as a kid then? :roll:


Everything was played with but I have always had a massive respect for my toys and boxed everything back up once I'd finished (or Mum & Dad would give me a shoeing!)

The MOCs were a combination of duplicates and last 17 which came out when I was growing out of playing with them I guess but at 49p each I couldn't resist - still remember hunting through the jumble of figures in Tesco's trying to find one of each of those - wish I'd bought the entire job lot now!

That's some great items you've had stashed away for all these years. Lots of Palitoy boxes and five speeder bikes!!

You really did look after your toys growing up and those boxes they're in look to be in great shape. Thanks again for putting the pictures up, it's really good to see them and your the first new member in a while who hasn't had a slight headache getting your photo's on here :lol:

Looks like you have a fantastic collection there mate. Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing it all in its non loft glory when you get some photos.

Get those MOCs out of the loft though. It looks like some of them are a bit bent. Theres some good advice on the forum on how to straighten them out a bit. Get some cases for them, starcases are ok but go for acrylic for display if you can afford it as they look great, plus when they are in there they will stay nice and flat.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Meccano stickered bike
Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo

The last 17 MOCs aren't great - quite squashed bubbles in some instances. My Amanaman looks like he's in blancmange! I'll have a search of the forums to see what I can do - Dyson it springs to mind but I'll check first!

Love those blasters!

Wow exciting stuff. The stuff dreams are made off! So cool that it is all from your childhood, my favourite stuff I have is from my childhood. Look forward to seeing it in full glory. :P
