Re: SPOILERS THREAD-The Rise of Skywalker-SPOILERS THREAD

Rotten Tomatoes currently sitting at 57%, and these are CRITIC reviews ( which are usually much higher rated compared to user's ), my god I can't wait to see where it's going to tank to once USER reviews start pouring in tomorrow. I'm glad this has happened, it actually makes me happy, I'm really l...

Re: SPOILERS THREAD-The Rise of Skywalker-SPOILERS THREAD

Have to say, I thought the score was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Taking themes from both OT and PT was inspired.

John Williams take a bow.

Re: Question regarding payment on the Vectis site

Brilliant. Thanks guys. Yes just received mine and they have taken payment automatically. Next question: how do you organise postage through Vectis, how much is it usually and are they good at packing? Any alternatives if not? It can take up to 21 days for them to pack and box everything. They then...

Re: Vectis 26th September

I got extra pics on the Han and the bubble is completely smashed on top, much worse than the face on pics looks, I’m not sure whether the figure could come out on it’s own but it’s very close to being able to. Like said earlier, it’s really just a cardback and attached bubble, and a loose figure for...

Re: Should grading companies archive/case reproductions?

The funniest part of the whole mess is that someone at CAS actually believed the story that the person submitting the cards was doing it so they could give them to their Mum to remind her of his childhood (or whatever the exact story was), and they’d never see the light of day again. Next thing they...

Re: The day is coming....repro MOC

Hi all, I know this has been discussed before but i was just having a little delve into it. I just wanted to do a wee test over the past few weeks and i bought one of these kits from Mr Poon as i was buying something from him anyway: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Star-Wars-Palitoy-12-Back-Stormt...

Re: This is very sad - Ahmed Best

He’s probably fortunate that it was 20years ago and way before social media made all our lives happier places. He was spared the treatment more recent acting disasters have had to endure. Most actors don’t have the luxury of turning down gigs even if they don’t like the scripts.

Re: General Grumbling

Being critised for using a dealer to buy or sell stuff, surely collectors should be free to buy and sell as they wish. Most collectors would prefer to not waste the %age commission you loose on both ends for themselves I’d imagine, plus the fun side of hunting down items, making friends along the w...

Re: And This Is Why I Hate Toxic "Fan" Boys and Their Bitching!

I think this is a misrepresentation. Iron Man was great... Iron Man 2 and 3 were far from it. Thor Ragnarok was a fun film, the other two Thors were woeful. There is no consistency of quality at Marvel. This applies to all franchises... we can all think of movies which are brilliant but others that...

Re: When does collecting move from mainstream to niche, who decides it and how?

It’s not mainstream now and never has been. Talk to 100 people about it and you’d be lucky if any more then a couple will know anything more than the blindingly obvious.

Re: Please delete thread

Ok fair enough guys, I wasn’t particularly meaning people on here, the proper idiots are mainly on FB derailing all manner of topics by bringing it back to their issues with TLJ. In the past couple of days alone I’ve seen threads about SWCCG, Hasbro toys, Lego and a cosplayer thread derailed by cran...

Re: Please delete thread

The funniest thing about the whole TLJ mess is that there are people out there who truly believe that Disney Execs spend their days trawling through the countless comments decrying how terrible TLJ wa and worry about what crank fans think. Newsflash : they don’t. Bottom line ££ and focus groups are ...
