thanks mate for the very kind words :D so do you not collect Scout's and Speeder Bikes any more ?


Always a pleasure. No, I sold up everything back in 2012/13. I had all but this MIB of the Speeder Bike range including a LIly Ledy one which I found one of the hardest to find. My other prize was a Model Trem Scout. Loved it (even though it was made of lead, lol).

No looking back though as I was glad to have had the collection and now someone else can enjoy it. Now I have changed my collection so it's nice for change. :)


I think it is fantastic that you can sell such cool items from your collection and then change your focus and collect some other items. I can't do that very often, I have only sold a very few things from my collection since I started to collect 17 years ago. I have sold all my potf moc and most of my baggies but that was because I did not have the same feeling for them as the other items, I think it was because it was not sold in my country in the 70s and 80s :?


I sold up my entire collection. I didn't think I was going to get back into collecting but as it turns out I never lost the bug, lol. Thanks for sharing your POTF piece. Great to see. :)

wow, sold your entire star wars collection :shock: I don't think I could ever do that. I am glad to read that you did not lost the bug, but do you now regret that you sold it since you did not lost the bug ? I still regret that I was so stupid to mix most of my childhood collection and also upgraded the beaters from my childhood collection and then sold some of them :roll:

No regrets in Life my friend. Everything happens for a reason. If you live your Life in regret then it slows you down and you don't really move forward.

In my perspective there are no mistakes in Life, only lessons to learn. :)

Time going faster is another theory I have. :) When you are younger times seems to go slower, maybe because for a 10 year old 1 year is a tenth of their life. When you are say 50 the 1 year is 1/50th of your life so seems to be smaller/quicker in proprtion to your entire life if this makes sense.

It's just an illusion (Imagination Pop Group, lol.)
