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

Here's my review of the first couple chapters if anyone fancies a longish read... The Mandalorian – Chapters 1 & 2 (2019) – Review by Matt Fox (May The Toys Be With You) Star Wars… to many of us the essence of Star Wars is encapsulated in that booming first chord of John William’s overture and the e...

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...

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...
