Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 61 LAUNCHED

I’ve missed a couple of the latest editions as I’ve been going through some pretty heavy personal upheaval. In short my marriage has broken up and my Mother has passed away. It’s been a really crappy couple of months where Star Wars has taken a slight back seat. It’s funny how things you love - lik...

Re: Time travel investment

In 1985 if you were REALLY lucky you might have been able to find a Tri-Logo X-Wing, probably would have cost more than £3 though. Similarly the Irish 3 packs would have been great investments if you could find them. Buying 3 of the Woolworths 99p 8 packs would also have been a good buy (at least be...

Re: Obscure Star Wars ANH Cinema Brochure

I agree with the price given, but something is niggling me...aren’t there two versions of this, one really common and a far rarer one. But for the life of me I can’t remember what the difference is, but I know it was subtle! The first edition has a smooth finish on the cover and the subsequent edit...

Re: New Member....seeking a bit of advice please

Hi Jamie, good to hear you're planning to keep a set of loose figures. The best thing to do would be to provide some nice clear photos that show all the figures arrayed in rows, and then another photo that shows all the weapon items. A simple test on the weapons, is called the float test. Put them i...

Re: Buying in the 80's how we used to buy figures

My pocket money was something like 20p a week in the late 70s / early 80s when the toys were on shop shelves. I'd ride my Raleigh Chopper down to the newsagent and that 20p would get me a can of drink, a Texan bar, or maybe a copy of 2000AD. I never had enough to actually buy toys myself. Pretty muc...

Re: The future of Vintage Star Wars collecting

Thanks dude, and actually there are loads of great responses in this thread. I've been spending a lot of my 'hobby reading time' recently on facebook and this has been a good reminder of how noticeably more in-depth and superior the level of convo is in this forum.

Re: The future of Vintage Star Wars collecting

We are living in the era of the geek. If I was an antique dealer I would be worried about my stock of brown furniture, brass, porcelain, and aged portraits. However, I'd be pretty confident that anything connected to tin robots, space toys, and super heroes would do all right. When the original Star...

Re: Harrods Exhibit April-May 1983

Wow! Thanks for sharing the pics, you've provided a real time capsule of the display. I am presuming they were all the screen used costumes too (Barada!).

Re: The Palitoy Star Wars Return Of The Jedi Command Satellite

Great to see these 'Command Satellite' items - I think these have some significance from a historical perspective for Palitoy and as far as I'm aware they are the only ones in existence (maybe someone will come on and say they 'turn up from time to time' but I doubt it!). Helps that they also look p...

Re: Blast from the past! Animatronic diorama display

I'd not seen that display before, very cool - it doesn't look like archival footage, I wonder is it recently taken? (ie: the display is in a current collection?)

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 54 LAUNCHED

Great show! I was also surprised to hear the full length Mastermind theme, I thought it had a bit of a sci-fi vibe to it actually so quite appropriate. I also agree with the comments that Stu really 'went out to bat' for the Imperial Dignitary - I'd like to say that he swayed opinion and made us all...
