I had he opposite or extreme I guess

the company I joined in 2004 the warehouse manager had a boxed at-at under his desk :shock:

he lived right near the modellers loft in caterham and had built up a complete loose run and was now buying boxed ships and playsets

I eventually bought the loose from him as he wanted to fund a new motorbike

You remember the Modellers loft, I used to buy a lot from this guy at fairs in the late 90's, ( Cheshunt, Basildon, Crawley) before I stopped collecting about 2001, do you know what happened to them?
I have tried in vain to find out, just intrested really.

On the rare occasions that has happened to me they have been half dog chewed barely recognisable as vintage, or even worse..........modern. Then the guy looks at you like you should b eternally grateful.

He has said they are well played with so I fully expect them all to go into the boys fledgling collection

I usually get the 'cliche comment', you know the one that goes something like
"Aw yeah I used to have all of the Star Wars back in the 80's but my Mum gave them to charity"

Hopefully for free but if the guy wanted money for them your 'bargaining power' would be somewhat compromised by your spontaneous Carlton Dance! :lol:

They are still going but have moved from surrey to Bournemouth https://www.modellersloft.co.uk/

I bought some great stuff from there not long before they closed the caterham shop, can remember getting a nice loose landspeeder, carded b-wing pilot with coin and about 15 loose mint figures for about £75
