Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Round 1 - Group R

Definitely AT AT.

My dad said if I beat him in a game of pool he would buy me the AT AT, I remember walking home with it in both arms and getting stopped by some kids who wanted to have a look at it.

In hindsight maybe it was an excuse for him to spend an afternoon in a pub?

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Round 1 - Group O

Tough one, I think the cruiser was the first vehicle I got but I probably played more with the skiff and having Luke Hoth (my only Luke) falling into a Sarlacc pit

Re: Stranger things on ebay

I did get this once when I did a general search for 'Star Wars', it was odd as I've never searched for Emperor's royal guard...

Has Jez created 14 accounts :lol: I mean I like the Rebel Transport, but seriously... Sorry to disappoint Edd, but Jez may only created 13 accounts (I maybe a west country lad with a low maintenance hair style but I'm not Jez) However, in my defence, I was suffering from a fever and was barely cons...

Re: Stranger things on ebay

The only thing that has happened to me is that while browsing on my phone app (iPhone), the image has got stuck but the processor hasn't realised this so when I've hit the screen (where no button is displayed) it has actioned what should be there if the screen has refreshed properly. Most of time I'...

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Round 1 - Group B

Tough one, as an adult I would probably go for the shuttle, but as a child probably would have got little play out of it. Bit of an overkill to fly in the Emperor to inspect the imperial army of 7. But then the transport annoyed me that it had a back door to allow the enemy to escape with ease Will ...

Re: Dark Brown Gaffi Stick Check

Thanks for the offer, but don't worry

Mine float as but you know how some sellers insist that some original will sink. Just wanted to see if there were cases of dark brown sticks sinking. It just didn't feel right as soon as I had it hand

Seller offered a full refund anyway so no big issue

Dark Brown Gaffi Stick Check

Bit of a basic question, but wanted to check When doing the dreaded float test (especially with a Gaffi stick), it shouldn't need to be delicately placed on top of the water should it? I know with some parts you need to do this but not as a general rule? And it should return to the top when pushed d...

Re: Thunder thigh Stormtrooper

Perhaps he was left astride a vehicle or creature for many years in a loft causing the legs to stay in that position!? Not sure that is the case, the top of his hips start to pop out if I try to squeeze his feet together. His thighs are up to 1mm wider than the figure I'm comparing it against, ther...

Re: Thunder thigh Stormtrooper

That could make sense. Measuring the body it is correct however the legs are about 2.5mm shorter. Is it a case that all 4 limbs would be moulded together on a sprue and kept together during manufacturer? The paint on the right arm almost looks like it has bled, I just thought it had been touched up ...

Thunder thigh Stormtrooper

What I got here? I don't think it is a Poontrooper (although the COO is the same variant), as some of the pointers don't match but to me the legs are spread too far apart and his hips are about 2mm wider In addition it is about 3 mm smaller than my other Stormtroopers, the arms 'clunk' every quarter...

Re: Warning new repro that is not in the tig guide

What I don't understand is this guy selling a repro Jawa blaster for £24.99 - and you don't even get free postage. And if it gets damaged in the post it is the buyers responsibility too!!

Re: What baffled you most about the toys as a kid?

The Die Cast Twin Cloud Car caused me issues. Were they on the side of the empire or the rebels? It was also the wrong size to fit in with the rest of the toys!

In the end I used to grip the central strut and pretend it was a hand gun
