Hi everyone
I signed up to the forum a while back and have found the information on the site to be great. Have finally got round to saying hi! Not very good at this stuff so if I have posted in wrong place or hijacked the wrong thread then apologies!
I’ve been collecting over the last 4 years again having bought a large collection when 18 years old (having a strong memory of all my loose figures going at a car boot sale for £5 in the 80s)!
Hate: repro and scams
Love: honest sellers and buyers
So far got the bug for loose complete figures but think of going graded due to repro! Have bought kids most of the 90s ships to play with along with the beaters!
Would attach photos of collection but like I say... not the best at technology!

Looking For: scam free dealings and authentic items!!

Thanks

Hi Warf

Welcome 8)

Nice collection of figures, the display case looks amazing.

Hi Warf,

Newbie here too. Great to hear your story and welcome.

Re: Graded. I have noticed since being here that graders can make mistakes too so it is not the gurarantee that I initially expected.
A nice figure in an acrylic case is just as satisfying I think. :D

Enjoy! Taff

Thought it about time i re-introduced myself.
Haven't been on since last year due to a mid life crisis :D
Was last on as PulsarP but Edd has managed to find my original account so hi guys!

Recently met Gaz after all these years and spoken to John and Andy so I'll stick around and try and contribute.

Hi Warf, welcome to the forum. Looks like on the photo that you are a variant collector ? :D

Thanks for the welcome guys.
I've missed browsing these forums in all honesty.
I've only just kicked Gaz S and Andy C out of my house so time for a cuppa and another look at some of your collections 8)
