Beginner collector question...

Is "POP" Proof of Purchase? guessing it maybe because of the hole in the card...

Yes that's right. Sometimes it is peeled off so is hardly noticeable, however is often cut out too.

:D having until recently been a modern collector it's taking a while to adjust to the slow burn that is vintage collecting. I'm still buying new stuff mainly astromechs but the buzz isn't there as it's all available all the time. When I get my first moc vintage astromech I'll be over the moon!

Nice gumtree purchase btw :)

Couple a great purchases there guys. The Gumtree pair are a steal! And that Madine for £40 is also nearly old skool money! Well done fellas. Reading this thread helps me keep the faith!

It's been a while since anything was posted here. Are sub £50 MOCs getting tougher to find?

It wasn't too long ago this was a £20 MOC but as with all things has crept up. This chap was from Vectis (you can still get good deals) and was 48p inside the £50 limit. For some reason it went £20 cheaper than the cracked bubble one that followed it. Going to give the bubble ding a go with the tape method and see if I can't make it better.

Yeah, not much out there for £50 and under. Having said that there should be quite a few additions after FF as I'll have loads for sale on the Sunday. Hopefully Nick will have some more bargains for sale too
Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold!

Will you please stop going on about FF, as I don't think that I can make it, and I am starting to feel depressed :(

Come on Lindo, get your arse down, Rich is pretty much Scottish and makes it :) Do it once and the distance won't figure the next time you consider coming. Great event.

I got a cheeky logray for £21, sadly it arrived with a cracked bubble after being damaged in transit.
Also got a nice 8D8 trilogo for just over £40. This thread keeps me motivated to hunt for bargains!

I know they're over £50 but it's close and still an amazing bargain, 2 weeks ago I managed to get Obi Wan ( trilogo ), Darth Vader and R2D2 all 3 ROTJ MOC's in great condition for £60 each.

A month ago I also got hold of a Ree Yees MOC in fairly nice cond for about £35, it's one of the cheapest MOC's you can buy but still a very nice figure to own and display and I love it.

Chavs are easily startled, but they will soon be back, and in greater numbers

Dammit boys, that humbled my B-Wing Pilot! That 8D8 is incredible for £40. Looks like Meccano card looking at the hole punch, too. Might be perspective making it look that way though. Nice one!

And I think R2, Vader and Obi-Wan are all allowed in on the grounds they're daft bargains :) want to see photos!

Where did you guy get them? Ebay?
