Re: Surprised by Astons

Exactly Ian. The way things are going with lockdowns we could bid on Thursday and be stopped travelling on weekend. It would be awful to not be able to collect something bought. And really all auction houses should offer in house posting at the moment . We in Wales are really having a crap time at ...

Re: Surprised by Astons

Out of interest (as I'm a little confused about delivery for anything won from the auction lol), do you have to contact one of the 3 delivery companies they've mentioned to arrange them to pack and pick up your items? I'm guessing they've dealt with these delivery companies before so they will know...

Re: Vintage palitoy death star, transporter and falcon

Looking at your Death Star I think it may well go for a little less than mentioned above as this one sold recently for around £640 shipped, which was in better shape than yours (including the box) - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Palitoy-Star-Wars-Death-Star-Play-Centre-1977-Complete-in-Original-Box-Use...

I keep saying to myself to stop buying modern but then I see the ROTJ Fett and before I know it I’ve slapped a pre order in :?
I know what you mean about this figure, it really does look incredible and I may well go for one myself to keep safe in a box somewhere lol!

Re: My thrift store find

what a great find! That's one big thing I miss about not being in the US, those amazing thrift stores they have, there are some amazing things to find in them although I don't remember ever seeing any vintage SW.

Great haul :)

Right, Imp Gunnery is now working for the most part (apart from Jawa pics) and they all seem good to me. Just had the OK from Dan Tearle on Echo as well 8)
I know all of the ones with the reseals i sold you were good so double check them against those to see how they sound and feel.

Re: I’ve just located my 60+ childhood cardbacks!

Ah I was a south bristol boy - this one was in Knowle West. Bit sad to know I missed out on any bristol toy shops! I didn't realise that there was a chain of them and the Martins in kingswood kept all of their Star Wars figures in wicker baskets, so you had to rummage through them to see what was i...

Re: I’ve just located my 60+ childhood cardbacks!

This is the Bristol Debenhams! I always remember the figures being much more expensive there - In the "fancy" department store IMG_3650.jpgIMG_3651.jpg Yet Boba is more expensive! This is almost certainly the second Boba I got - This is from Martins - Which IIRC was a toy shop in a South Bristol sh...

Re: The Listening Post.

Honestly, this is what I think It boils down to. The only people that will be pissed off are scalpers, people that purely purchased to flip later, and those that bought one purely due to it being limited and cant stand others having something. Those that actually want one in their collection and ac...
