Re: R2/ R5 leg - snapped leg is fine

Thanks.

I would have thought loads of people would have broken parts for droids lying around in a spares box, but it appears not unless they have all been thrown away.

R2/ R5 leg - snapped leg is fine

Hi everyone, I am after a spare leg for an old R2 i had as a kid, i was given it by a family friend back in the day and was in bad shape (no legs, no sticker) so i repainted the top with some silver paint my dad must have had in the garage and cut out an R2 chest image from a magazine and later foun...

R2 head/ clicker part variations?

Hi all, i recently purchased an r2 solid dome on the cheap but the clicker was broken, or so i thought. I had a spare so i went to swap it out but the clicker was indeed intact, it just didn't meet the associated part in the head that it touches to create the clicking noise. I always assumed the cli...

Re: Vinyl Cape Repair Guide

I agree, it does shrink the capes slightly if you use boiling water. I find the best method is quite warm water in a flat bottomed dish/bowl, drop it in and leave it. Takes longer to flatten out and wont get really bad creases out like the boiling water, but it doesn't seem to shrink the capes eithe...

Vader cape authenticity

Hi all. Recently picked up a loose Vader with cape from a charity shop and I'm Abit stumped by the cape. I've seen my fair share of fakes and have a few genuine ones which are all the zippy textures one side and kinda smooth on the other. This one feels like a real one, nicely pliable, similar thick...

Re: r2 drid factory

i just paid 25 for one without a sticker or middle leg, but from looking, 60+ seems the going rate like others have said if you want it complete.

That's OK, its just it was for your daughter, so assumed she wouldn't care if it was original or repro.

Re: Episode 9...your personal feelings

i read that poster is official, but it was early concept artwork, so reading into any details would be kind of irrelevant. I'm looking forward to IX, i just wish JJ had done the trilogy, even though i didn't hate TLJ, the poor continuity between the 2 films as far as linking the little story bits th...

Clear plastic inserts inside cardback bubble?

Morning, I'm sure someone can easily answer this, but i only have a handful of MOC figures (i prefer loose, so does my bank balance) and i have a General Madine which has a clear plastic insert inside the bubble that the figure sits nearly in which i've never seen before on carded vintage figures. I...

Jabba bong stand

Does anyone have a spare Jabba bong stand they would sell me? its the only thing missing from a jabba playset i have but the only ones that come up on ebay are 30 pounds (ish) and you can get a complete set for 50-60 with the stand.

Thanks
