Re: Loose vehicle - international variations?

Found another one: the Australian Toltoys landspeeder variant with a sticker instead of red paint

Re: Loose vehicle - international variations?

spot on -that's a good tip, thank you. I've been buying quite a few Tie fighters of late - mainly to track own broken parts, so I'll check my stock of Darth Vader ones to see if I have any with these hatches.

I think that gives a total of 31 variants so far - of which I have 21.

Loose vehicle - international variations?

Hi all. Well I've definitely gone down the rabbit hole since I started collecting again. I now have 5 different variations of X-Wing whizzing their way to me from around the globe! I'm looking for some advice. My interest is only in lose vehicles (I leave boxed items for the more seasoned collectors...

Wing struts/connectors from Battle Damaged Tie Fighter

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a pair of wing struts/connectors from a blue Kenner battle damaged Tie Fighter if anyone has them. Happy to buy a complete spares-or-repairs model. I do have a spare pair of wings if anyone needs to trade. Thanks. PS: they look like this: https://lh3.googleusercontent.co...

Re: Sandcrawler, loose/played-with, wanted.

Hi - thank you.

Gutted to have missed out on them, its things like this that I'm learning: which auction houses and the like.

But really reassuring to know that they do pop up - I'm braced for the cost: boxed ones are definitely out of the running, but a loose one should fall in budget.

Sandcrawler, loose/played-with, wanted.

My bank balance will hate me for this. But, does anyone have a line on a '79 Sandcrawler for sale? Its one of two vehicles I've never owned. The rest of my collection is loose/played with and looking for something similar in a '79 R/C Sandcrawler. I can cope with some missing parts (even the remote)...

UKG-esque loose vehicle cases?

Hi everyone. Recent member of the forum here. After a good few years away from local collecting, I've picked up the bug again and am currently working to complete my vehicle collection. My collection, in honesty, is lovely for display purposes but falls far short of the standards that would warrant ...

Re: Who's Who - Introduce yourself!

Hi everyone. New here so thought I'd post an introduction. I'm Gaz - based in the North West. I started collecting modern figures when the Special Editions came out in the '90s. Then graduated to vintage collecting, getting rid of the modern stuff along the way. My focus is mainly on Original Trilog...
