Re: The item you've had the longest in your collection ?

Nice idea for a thread, this Fascal sticker I’ve had for around 40 years and the Rebel Soldier and Sand Person are also childhood ones, although lost in a flowerbed for 15 years. The Klaatu is one of the first as an adult collector. Bought carded in 1991/92 from a toy shop in Bradford and been displ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

amazing die cast as always spoons, where did you find that r2 :shock: Thnaks coomber, they came as a pair on facebook and the R2 had been painted with enamels and needed a good cleaning.

Long time since I looked in on here and loads of lovely vintage in that time. Capetown Emiel has really been going for it - really like the endor set with the folded MOCs, and brilliant that Frunkstar got those baggies. roundster I think I have the only Non signed Kellerman in existence. Here are a ...

Re: Rancor Variants

I've got a green and a brown rancor, but the green one is definitely discolouration. If you lift the arms as high as they go onthe faded one the ball joints should still be the original colour as the other one.

Re: Admin please delete

@subzero @spoons @Pomse2001 @peekaygee73 Guys I have deleted a handful of posts here as the thread went well off topic, even for this place, and into the messy world of what is and isn’t racism. I’m not making any comment on who was “right” or “wrong” and none of you are in trouble (as if this was ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Thanks both. The TIE is up on DOND. I’ve only ever seen three and I own two of them :D

Had my eye on the Landspeeder and X Wing for a while and was offered the TIE with no extra postage. Assumed I could move it on at cost but not so sure now

Re: Pete in ROTJ weekly

Probably around 2000 letters/writers in these things @Pomse2001 and there are maybe a couple of 100 regularly posting collectors on Facebook, of which I’ll recognise/remember maybe 50 names. A good chance I’ve missed a few :) That is cool, that so many writers from the comics is still active in the...
