Hi Col im also from darlington i collected a bit of modern 7-8 years ago before i realised vintage is the only way to go. The funny thing is i still stuck to the same budget but now i have a vintage collect worth a hell of a lot of money whereas i couldn't even get half my money back for the modern stuff. I know many vintage collectors got into the game via modern first.

I only collect carded vintage figures but if you are looking to get into vintage i could sell you a couple of c8 vintage carded figures relatively cheap approx £20 as been in the same town we could save on postage.

Just a thought as collecting modern can be a real pain due to limited shelf life and the items holding no value (present and future)

If not i hope the collecting goes well for you and if there is any specific modern your looking for let me know and ill keep my eye out for you.

Take care Jay

I like them, I picked up some figures in Sainsburys yesterday. They're doing these double packs with a comic.

That's it Mouse, comic's pretty shit. Was up town today and popped into Forbidden Planet - OH MY GOD, heaven. Load of those two packs. A huge model of Luke on a speederbike. Had that R2 DVD Player in there. The shop is amazing.

couldnt believe the amount of stuff my nearest woolies had today

the latest coin wave was in at 2.99 with jango fett and the concept rebel trooper

plus the boring first wave of clone wars figures but they also had all the full 8 legacy figures in, wads very tempted to buy gargan for nostalgia reasons but the packaging looks crap good to see woolworths stocking these though the bounty hunter bale or bane who i never even heard of looks pretty cool too
