Don't get me wrong Darren we have alway been polite and civil with each other and had good conversations etc and I will always say hello. Maybe my idea of a good friend is a little diff to urs but hey it's all good.
Looking for mint sealed or unused Palitoy Empire.

I'd love to see a pic of a 41 back Dengar, but this is because I'd love to see a picture of a 41 back Dengar, rather than needing to see one to believe it exists. It's been on my wants list for some time and will remain there for the foreseeable future no doubt.

I do appreciate people's desire to have some confirmation. A fun part of collecting is the discovery of new pieces, (the VC Jawa is a good recent example). Some of us have been doing this for decades and new things turn up every now and then which change our understanding slightly, and sometime considerably.

But the end of the day, as much as much as I'd like to see one (not to mention own one) it is up to the owner of any item, in this case Darren, to do with it what they will. If they choose not to show pictures then that is entirely their choice. If they choose to open it, burn the cardback and melt the figure in the microwave....that again is their choice - please don't do that though :D

No one has any entitlement to anything in this hobby, other than to be treated with respect as a fellow collector. No one has any inherent ownership over anything, unless they directly own it, be it an item, a picture of that item or information about it.

I'm sure no one intended to give anyone any stick regarding this - and it has somewhat distracted us from the original OP's question.

You will indeed find me at the bar...with that delinquent Andy Rylos sipping cocktails.

Can't wait :D

Wow that's cool, not been following things recently and had no idea more cardbacks had surfaced.

Hi

I think I have a solution to all this, if Darren sells me the 41 back Dengar then people will stop pestering him and busting his balls (which I imagine is quite painfull). I am not particularly shy so I will happily show the forum the pictures of it thereby confirming its existence :D

Thanks

Here's the definitive proof youve been looking for. Darren was kind enough to show me a video and pictures of his Palitoy Dengar 41 back at Celebration last week on his mobile. You can tell from my reaction that it must be genuine. At last we can put this to rest. Peace out!

Still don't see the issue of not posting a pic for all to see, everyone knows that Darren will not be selling it, so why not just prove it's existence by putting a pic on the forum ???

I'm sorry Jason but that doesn't prove anything to me....

Then you can ignore the whole matrix then. As the entries on it are all verified in a similar manner.

:-p

I might be alone in my thinking here but personally I like to keep some Mystery in collecting so I actually like the fact the picture hasn't been posted. For me the 41 Back Dengar is like a Magic Trick the mystery and thereby intrigue is in not knowing.

Don't be silly - only a few entries are verified in that way. Didn't the matrix used to have a separate entry for 'reported to exist', or has that been wiped out?

Wasn't talking about your matrix Jason...

Just saying that from my point of view that picture, to me at least, proves nothing whatsoever

Other than you met up with Darren in Orlando.

I wonder if Darren has any other pictures on his phone like the Yeti, Big Foot, Loch Ness Monster or the Abominable Snowman.

Just my opinion.


I don't think people I'm friends with would ever call me selfish and arrogant but if that's what certain people want to think of me I'm cool with that .....trust me I've been called a lot worse.


Darren,

Just keep smiling mate, it's toys afterall...lol

Unfortunately nowadays there is a huge percentage of collectors who think they can try and get into our lives and dictate and demand how we conduct our business.

Number one rule....take no shit off nobody..... hahaha

Anyway, if people think your not shy, arrogant and selfish.....god knows what they think of me.....lol

Finally, I'm into Star Wars just for the money, nice to see your still a collector mate....sell the lot and buy your missus a nice convertible...!

Stick with the dr who keyrings mate..!

I simplified the entries when I took it over. The ? entries are mostly gone now. If I have credible proof that a card/figure exists, be that a photo I have seen or word of mouth from a trusted source, I put an entry as existing now.
