Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

... And this next episode 'Chapter 13, The Jedi' was back to brilliance. For me, so much of sci-fi fantasy is based on world building, and this episode was just wonderful in that regard. I have some knowledge of how these episodes are made, with 'the volume' but throughout this episode the visuals i...

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

When I pulled my childhood collection down from my loft in the mid Nineties and started buying more figures, I just mingled them all together. I was buying up job lots and amassed easily a couple of thousand toys and figures so no way of knowing which were my originals. In truth I'm not super sentim...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

This episode was a slightly weaker one for me. It felt a bit more 'TV' in terms of the acting and direction, and the Merman character looks and acts like he wandered out of the make up dept for Star Trek Deep Space Nine - striking a rare false note in an otherwise very believable and real feeling se...

Re: After 40 years it's finally finished!

I wonder if 40 years is a record for completing a sticker album, congratulations.

I had this album too and looking at these images and doing playground swaps must have subliminally helped ingrain the obsession for Star Wars in our young brains!

Merry Xmas to all the SWFUK lads. Makes me feel less of a loony knowing there are others out there that share my love of the plastic gold!

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

You'd like it in Singapore, apparently they've had to cut those 2 seconds of hot girl-on-girl action to avoid an adult rating. :D

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Maybe they've all bee locked up in space prison. Maybe baby Yoda has already done porridge! Baby Borstal has definitely done an 8, and used his mind powers to sniff out the nonces and the grasses on his block. That's why he wouldn't step foot on that prison ship, too many bad memories. For me that ...

Re: The Vintage Rebellion Episode 66 Launched

Thanks for sharing the pic of the "show bag", in truth that's a new one on me and it's always good to hear about something vintage related, a different way of selling, that doesn't get talked about much if ever. Tricky thing to classify but it's a bag so maybe it ought to be on the radar o...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Really enjoyed this, especially the Jawas and the Sandcrawler scuffle. Although, apart from the Yoda Baby revelation, I don't think this episode moved the story along much. Still only minor niggles, still loving the series so far. I actually really enjoyed the pacing of the second chapter, minimal ...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 64 LAUNCHED

Very sad to hear that the host with the most, Stu Skinner, is hanging up his microphone. Stu you've been brilliant, and you deserve far more than a Spice Girls send off! I do hope that you return back to the podcast in cameo form some day... Andy and Mark good to hear from both of you boys, you brou...

Re: VECTIS AUCTION - Thursday 26th September

Steve, I just looked at the Vectis Auction catalogue, and as you mention - it is very obvious where your collection starts in the auction! An amazing array and I am sure it will do well and help you out at this difficult time. I am sorry to hear of your separation. We haven't met in person but in co...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 62 LAUNCHED

Another lovely long listen! Jez, sorry to hear you are 'stepping down' but your reasons are 100% understandable, and if I was a pilot under your command I'd much rather you had all your attention on me than on Luke X-Wing Pilot :D . You did get gipped on that green accessories question though - R2 P...
