Selling Etiquette

Recently there was a disagreement between a buyer and seller on here about the amount of detail and information disclosed in a sales post. I'm not going to name the individuals involved as in my opinion the seller didn't do anything wrong. It's now been sorted, both had valid points but it did raise...

Re: Space efficient (and cheaper) alternative to Star Cases

Hopefully the plastic that they're made from won't end up effecting the bubbles over time but they are a great way of either storing or displaying mocs. I've owned some of these for video games for over a decace and they all still look fresh. I often find star cases start going yellow after a few y...

Re: Space efficient (and cheaper) alternative to Star Cases

It really baffles me why Pro-Tech make such deep cases when 95% of the figures fit in a case <1 inch deep

Re: New forum features

Big thanks to the 32 subscribers we have had so far, that's the running costs covered for another year (which just renewed in December.) Any further subscriptions will be used to beef up the hosting package, which should result in a faster forum and less down time.

They look great Mike! Yes it's really important to fold/soften the creases multiple times or they won't close properly.

Re: Need help regarding a 1978 GMFGI x-wing pilot luke skywalker.

I have lots of carded Luke X-Wings, most people think that the 'correct' blaster is the blue/black one but actually many of my Kenner Luke's have the blue blaster normally associated with Luke Bespin and Han Hoth. So IMO either blue/black or blue are fine.

Re: Star Wars Palitoy documentary coming to BBC4

Finally got round to watching the toy episode today, will have to save the film eposide for another time. Really enjoyed it, great to see interviews with people that sold, designed and even 'just' assembled or packaged the toys we all love.

Re: Best Buy of 2019

I haven't bought a great deal of Star Wars items this year as all my runs have got to that point of being hard to find anything new. This Lando was a nice surprise as it was one I wasn't aware existed, and a forum member alerted me to it: lando.jpg However sorry to venture off topic but my absoulte ...

Re: Episode 9 for those of us who hated TLJ

Finally got to see it last night, I really enjoyed it. I can see what others are saying about JJ playing it safe, it is a crowd pleaser for sure. but after the car crash that was TLJ that's just fine by me.

Re: Retro gaming new acquisitions

Genuine ‘wild’ find today, I spotted a phone and vape shop that had some retro games in a small village while out getting some baby food, and amongst all the usual common stuff you find in such shops I found these. A sealed Mega Drive 4 way adapter, and an unused Master System joystick :) F077C9D0-D...

I have a lightsabre pizza slicer, probably the most random Star Wars item I've been given!
