i seem to remember one with a bloke who had a shelf of all the loose figures and spoke about rocket firing fett late 90s/early 2000s he may have been in his mid 20s with a ponytail and glasses but im not definite on that

were a few others early 90s aswell as i can remember my dad calling me in to watch at the time some of those were the child editions they did around christmas though

Thanks for the link, brings back great memories of weekends before internet and technology.

I remember watching one episode with Star Wars figures on show, the "expert" said Yak Face was worth £50 because he was complete with his cape and weapon (it had the correct staff and Prune-Face cloak).

I'd love to see that episode again.

I believe vintage Star Wars toys featured on The Antiques Roadshow more than once in the 90's, and I'm pretty sure the link above is not to the episode I remember and was talking about in my post on the previous page (although it's still enjoyable to see this one, so thank you for posting the link). I'm fairly confident the expert in the episode I saw actually picked up Boba Fett and turned him over to inspect his rocket :roll:

Yep, thanks but not the one I was thinking of either, although my memory is very hazy. I'm sure some or all of it was filmed in York.
