Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nice pickups all. @TheJabbaWookie the POCH figures look great, love the apple green Yoda. I’ve no real knowledge on POCH figures, are they all kind of scarred with melt marks from some manufacturing process?? I’ll do some reading up on them, any good links that anyone would like to share?

I’m sure I’ve a Black Hole version squirrelled away somewhere.
Is it a metal or plastic one?
I would love to see pictures if you could.😀
It’s definitely plastic, pretty sure it’s white with a black cup top?

I’ll search it out and pop a piccy up 👍

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Thanks for the kind words about the Transport, I’m really pleased with the vehicle and it’s condition :D

Love the Yoda selection...

@TheJabbaWookie

Those thermos bring back memories of my school packed lunches. I’m sure I’ve a Black Hole version squirrelled away somewhere.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Love the ESB Imperial cardbacks, always been top 20 figures for me. Recent acquisition Palitoy Imperial Troop Transport. I’m trying to add some unused vehicles, just things I like really, no specific line. Had one of these as a kid, this one came with the sound function not working but I’ve managed ...

Re: Unusual Hoth Rebel Soldier... any info please

First off, it’s just a simple Smile factory figure - the same as the one on the left. I believe the Smile variant of the RS is the one most commonly found in the UK. If you don’t know what Smile is you can find out more about the factories used to make Star Wars figures at https://swspaceclub.com/w...

Unusual Hoth Rebel Soldier... any info please

Hi all, I’m wondering if anyone’s come across this kind of mis paint/ unpainted torso on other figures? This guy has a completely plain front torso and a normal (painted belt) rear?! He has a straighter stance than others I’ve had too, painted boots and the COO reads Hong Kong but it’s almost looks ...

WTB: Early bird outer mailer box

I’m probably not going to get much luck! Just need an excellent mailer to replace mine, it lets the set down as all baggies are sealed, everything is present and in fantastic shape. I appreciate that I may have to purchase an excellent box set with opened contents and swap the boxes and sell it on.....

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 8, 2020

Some fantastic card backs, such iconic images I’ve fond memories of the Luke farmboy figure, I just loved the sliding lightsaber feature. One of either mine or my brothers Lukes eventually ended up dangling from the neighbours tv aerial by a shoelace!... an over enthusiastic re creation of the swing...
