Re: Slick seal on a 12 back Kenner

I reckon the corner lifting is the result of the knock that creased the bubble. Not a huge issue, but will factor into the cost. The card looks legit to me.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nice figs TLM.

Gotta love that DSD. My fave card/figure combo.

To get mine looking that good I had to shift this nasty thing....

Re: UK customs - Info that might help!!

It's got to be worth trying top get the seller to mark the box in a manner that states the contents are 'vintage' or a similar term, a bit like AFA do when only offering a service. At least if you are charged it might be right first time rather than chasing it up for a refund. 'Old collectible toy' ...

The best thing on Ebay ever?

Whilst that may be a bold statement, you have to admit this is a pretty sweet sale......

Re: These look Like fake Palitoys

Gotta say the cardstock on the DSD looks good. Maybe that's why the Palitoy guys are keeping quiet as you've just outed some treasure? :lol:

Palitoy Boba fett 45 back reseal?

The litho on this doesn't match up over the top of the bubble. I'd be carefull, and i'm speaking from experience. I have one exactly the same and i know it's a reseal because I did it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160655874588?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Looking through the selle...

Re: Steep for a Tri Fett?

Painted dart, unpainted knee, which in my mind is the hardest of the four variations to get. Maybe that had an effect on the final price?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Loving the Gammy. There's something about the contrast of colours on that card that make it a great looker.

Nice crew there too Ham, esp the R2 and ERG.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Some cracking new additions guys. Great Jawa. Shame about the case. I can't believe they just squashed it betweem two pieces of acrylic. Surely it would've been better placed over a round peg (think like a hat stand) to show how it should fit when on the Jawas head. Looks like some dude was scratchi...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Kinda glad you outbid me on that Anakin. Not good for you though which is a shame. It looked dark to me which is why I bid. Until the original one was posted in this very thread I never knew about the darker first shot. You've got to wonder whether it was seen here by the seller who realised the opp...

Yeah, something I had thought too from the pic though it's never easy with the detail available. I also couldn't find any pics to verify what a proper DT saber should look like.
