Pretty much nailed all mine... except the Ledy Speeder Bike...

MarkG wrote:Not a huge target for me in 2017... just the following ;

A full run of cardbacks.. one of each character. This will complete my triple run.. loose, moc and cardback. DONE

Any Stormtrooper cardback I don't yet own.. POTF, Top Toys for starters. Got those 2, but still looking for more - up to 33 unique cards so far

4LOM mailer - as this one is the most achievable of the ones I require.. Dengar would be good but costly. DONE (apart from Dengar)

Lily Ledy Boxed Speeder Bike Yeah Right... maybe 2018
Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....

Thought you had a lead on the ll bike on here?

They are seemingly the trickiest of the run.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Well.. I did put my interest across, but as all the MOCs ended up on eBay, I was hoping that would have gone the same way... not seen it yet. :(

Keep going to shows, keep meeting up with friends and maybe make some new ones too.


Still 2 months to go, but I definitely won't be adding any more meccanos and while I've finished my standard loose run I'm still missing VCJ and BS. On the plus side I've added quite a few palitoys to my run!

A mixed bag!
Detailed WTB list here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32243

Includes: Loose figures, Palitoy MOCs, Meccano 20bks, Vehicles, Mailers, Paperwork and more.

Complete my set of Tri logo Fetts - One more to go, unp knee/painted dart
Bootleg Luke Jedi figure - Need
Further items for my Luke Jedi picture collection - managed a couple of items

To complete anyone of these would be truly amazing 8)


Very happy with my achievements
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

2. Add some more ships to the collection, maybe a few playsets as well.
3. I bought a large collection of carded POTF2 and Episode 1 figures recently so may start finishing off the run of those.
4. More Zuckuss.
5. Create some space to put all this!


Mainly being gaining the ships this year, including a nice AT-AT, A-Wing and Imperial Shuttle.

I haven't found any of these. Did manage to find some stuff I didn't know I needed though. :)

My dream is grabbing one of the Trilogo Play packs. 8)

I've not bought much on my list. Have got a few Last 17 and the 2-1B. Not managed a Trilogo Fett. Rebo bands are going for daft money now. Have bought a couple of Mocs but a pretty slow year for me.

edd_jedi wrote:Not ten individual items but my main focus areas for next year:

1) Pick up a Yak (probably) and Madine (unlikely) to finish my trilogo run
2) Finish my run of basic baggies, need about 30 more
3) Pick up a couple more nice MISB vehicles, especially keen on a Snowspeeder and B-Wing
4) Find some more obscure Star Wars/LucarArts games I don't already have
5) Continue to pick up 70b/70c trilogo MOCs when funds allow


1) Got the Yak but no Madine (definitely not going to happen now I've had a baby :lol: )
2) Baggiegate threw a spanner in the works, haven't bought a single one since
3) I think I have bought a couple of smaller vehicles, no Snowspeeder or B-Wing though
4) As you may have seen in Off Topic I recently picked up Simon the Sorcerer which has been one of my biggest wants :)
5) This run has gone really well, I picked up several at the first FF this year 8)

Overall very happy so far.

Jez wrote:My goals, hopes and dreams for 2017 is

1. To find a true gem out there in the wilderness: Carboot Sale, Charity Shop, Local Sales etc
Not yet, unless you count the 3 Tri Logo Yak Face MOCs in May

2. To finally find a photo of me with a Star Wars item as a kid
Crushed to say not yet.

3. To continue to improve my limited knowledge
I know a bit more

4. To continue to contribute to this forum in some shape or other
In a small way

5. To continue to have fun at the collecting socials, FF and celebration.
Definitely

6. To add a really cool item to my LXW focus
Woolies 8 pack with 2 x LXW in it

7. To continue to be on the podcast
Total labour of Love

8. To bring on and encourage new collectors
No evidence of this

9. To continue to get a kick out of showing any house guests my collection (whats left of it)
I love Star Wars and I show everyone who visits!

10. To discourage U grading
If you U Grade or collect U Grades you are a parasite. Done


Not a bad effort I guess

Hi all.

Apologies if an answer has been already been posted before in re to what I am about to ask!

I am looking to add to my collection of loose figures and I find that when I am on ebay I struggling to understand the diff between "VINTAGE" and the "VINTAGE" that I know as a lad from the seventies. When I am on ebay I am worried to part with any cash or pay over the odds etc.

Would anyone out there be able to give me some good pointers/advise. Again, please accept my apologies if these types of requests have been answered multiple times but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Stuart

Long term goals - Just needing 13 figures for a full Moc run..
Sadly all that i need are now expensive. :?
Amazingly i still require a Lumat Moc (Any card). Him being the lowest price one he's next on my list before the years out and i have spare funds.
I've got a thing for Vtg starwars mirrors, especially those cheap tacky wood framed bootleg ones you got when the shows or circus were in town, i've ot 4 just now i've purchased this year & wouldn't mind finding another one of those before 2017's out.
