Isn't that part of the thrill of collecting though? Especially if you get something cheap?



Not really you are better off investing is good items mint items in the long run its going to pay off for you , spending ages buying old crap bit parts yellow rubbish and trying to get a ship or play set together using old rubbish is just time consuming and wasted effort , buy a mint item or a good condition item its far more satisfaction in that I feel anyway yes it takes time yes its a bit more money but in the end you will have a really nice collection . and not just a bunch of beaters and ships that look like Bigfoot pished on them .

PS but saying that it all depends on what sort of collector you are if you are happy with old stuff and just want it for the nostalgia trip then fine , but personally iv got to get the best i can find i find it really rewarding and i get a lot of pleasure from it , its an investment Iv had some good deals on boxed items you just got to know how to play it :P .

This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.

Yep still white,, and not disolved,, but you can still see some residue in the joints probably from not cleaning them properly. :roll:
