Re: Value of graded items in comparison to grades?

We all know a loose Lobot is a £15-20 figure & I got a UKG90 (F90,P85).I was told it was only the 3rd to achieve that grade & was curious to see what price it would fetch so I put it on eBay auction. Imagine how shocked I was when it sold for £475!!! :o There are quite a few people who are putting ...

Re: Value of graded items in comparison to grades?

So few items get a grade of 90, so if you are a collector who wants a full run of 'graded 90's' you need deep pockets and hit big when you need to. I don't understand the obsession with high grades, its hard enough putting an average run together. :lol: That was close to our original discussion at ...

Value of graded items in comparison to grades?

A discussion with my wife earlier has got me thinking, and it would be interesting for any other opinions. On graded items, obviously the higher grade adds to the value. And an 80 grade should in theory be worth slightly less than an 85 grade. So how much more would you say a 90 grade could be over ...

Re: Fake afa sticker

I wonder if AfA can/will do anything about this ?
I imagine their grading label has copyright ?

Re: Latest Acquisition

Well it has certainly been a crazy year for all of us what with COVID-19, lockdown and furlough etc :!: It has also been a crazy one for me regarding vintage SW as yesterday I received the last MOC I have been missing for a long time to complete the Palitoy full historic production run of Luke Skyw...

Re: Insurance for collectors.

Bump ! As it is insurance renewal time in my household. I think we will take out collectors insurance,on top, as it is surprising the value now of items. Has anyone else got any ? How do you find it ? As due to an incident with my parents,we found that it is a different cash value, to a replacement ...

WTB Palitoy 20 back Power Droid

Just need a Power Droid to complete my 20 back set. I expect to be asking for a long time, but it needs to be un punched and ideally an 85 grade to be in keeping with the other 7. Also on the look out for Palitoy 12 Backs -luke, Vader, Ben, leia ,Han and Stormtrooper - again 85 if graded. Thanks Paul

Re: Pali Luke X Wing question

Just looked at mine, and it's black.
Just as dark as the black on Luke's boots and accessories.
