AARRGH! WTF ARE THOSE!?!

Postby TrooperWill » Mon May 21, 2018 3:31 pm

I prefer trading items to buying them, have a loose run, about half the ships/vehicles and all the mini-rigs, spent under £200 and have had a blast doing so. This hobby doesn't have to be about spending a mortgage deposit every month on one item

its more the piss poor paint job, from a spray can, and the ridiculous price that makes me wince. done well with badly worn beaters, with a decent paintjob and id let it slide, but once again ebay was made me sad. fancy picking up a joblot of vintage empire and thinking "i know, ill spray them black, call them custom and ask a high price, some nerd will by them." :x :shock:

I wouldn't let it slide, badly worn beaters re painted can be sold as original and people get scammed.

That's the first impression iv'e got, it looks like someone just went to Halfords to get a cheapo black can of car paint to do them.

I don't know what you're complaining about. Those brilliant Shadow customs are only £111. What a bargain! They're an exclusive, one-of-a-kind set and would be cheap at twice the price...

What? What's that, nurse? It's time for my medication, you say?

I meant as customs, if they were well painted and clearly not from the vintage line they would be more understandable, as some nutters seem to quite like customs.

brilliant! whatever you are being medicated with, id say you need the dose upping.

Christ, i love star wars, I have a baby son, and i collect vintage so i supose those are aimed at people like me (or, you know, everyone on this forum) and those are sickening.

What the fuck is a 'cake smash outfit'? Is it a euphemism?
