Alternative sites to The Imperial Gunnery?

I've used TIG for years to validate my vintage weapons as original but do alternative sites exist? Is TIG still updated? I can see an update from January 2019, but I don't do Facebook so not sure if the community has migrated there? Has there been any significant changes to reproduction weapons in c...

Ebay Gripes

I have many... here are 10 off the top off my head 1- That seller... "Best Repros I've seen" 2 - The phrase "AFA Ready" 2- The phrase "Minty"... particularly when used to describe a dirty figure with obvious paint loss 3- "Star War" ...come on, its nearly half...

Re: Nearly completed the first 79..

Thanks, I just snapped an R2 up so I'm done and I can do something other than refreshing ebay searches for a while :D . Its actually the first 77 , for some reason I mentioned the first 79 but I haven't bought Paploo and Lumat. I plan to buy one of the last 17 every now and then.. but my addictive p...

Re: Nearly completed the first 79..

Just an R2D2 Solid Dome left to track down.. trying to avoid buying one that's trashed and waiting on a decent one to turn up at a reasonable price.

Re: Tri Logo Last 15 MOC’s and general collecting!

I get you, makes perfect sense!

Buying them is one thing, but finding the space to display them is another matter! Its one issue Americans don't seem to have to worry about as much... seeing as their houses are 3 times the average size compared to the UK :o

Re: Tri Logo Last 15 MOC’s.

After various replies on here and on RS the decision has been made! I’m keeping 2! :D Amanaman as he is such a random figure! Anakin as it’s airbrush card back art so like so different to others! I was just reflecting on how I sold my 12 back run years ago, it still stings, not because of the price...

Re: Luke 77bk UKG 85 - Alternative Gunner Cardback

Thanks for that, I was predicting around £700 so that's nice to know. No intentions of selling, more out of curiosity but thanks. You’d get 700 or more ungraded at the minute Crazy. its looking nice in the cabinet for now.... based on my past SW selling form, I'll wait until the market collapses an...

Nearly completed the first 79..

I don't get the "last 17"... there were 79 on cardbacks before the last 15 surely.. Anyway... Despite buying and selling on and off for approaching 20 years, I've never had a full collection, but this is happening. I still need the following to complete the first 79.. R2D2 Solid Dome Greed...

Luke 77bk UKG 85 - Alternative Gunner Cardback

Had this a while and been keeping an eye out on eBAY for a good indication of its value but it rarely turns up and when it does its heavily overpriced (like £1.5k) so doesn't sell.

UKG Y85 Subs Cardback 85, Bubble 85 Figure 80.

Only minor yellowing.

Thoughts?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Been almost a month since I last added some new buys in this thread so I was working out what I'd bought since then. I was a surprised by the result. :D
