Re: Surprised by Astons

I still don't understand the 6% premium for online bidding, especially when it is an online only auction.

6% is a hefty addition, especially when the 24% is on the higher end of commission already.

Charging for online, in this day in age, is a bit of robbery.

You after the Jawa Emiel?? :lol:
Yep! :lol:

I thought I would try bidding in one of these UK auctions, but this one might not be the one most suitable to start with.
Let the battle commence ;)

Re: Echo Live VIII - 5 OCT 19

Will be there with Daz (possibly Ben) and a couple of tables. Drinks Friday night. Drinks food and probably the nightclub on the Saturday again - always a good laugh. Taffius Toffiius. Darth Bobby Dazzler. Andy S Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan, and we are the Wyld Stallyns. StarWarsFannyCrad...

Re: Boxed Imperial Shuttle Valuation

Sold mine, which was complete with all inserts and used sticker sheet and in far better condition for £400. Which was a fair price really. Quite difficult to shift in general.

Re: R2d2 loose pop up price

Re: New collector, first event - Farthest From?

Heya Paul,

FF is most definitely a decent start for your first show - and families are always welcomed.

Don't think we have any dates for the first show yet.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Round 2 - Match 1

I’m surprised by the voting so far! I expected Leia to be well out in front, but maybe this is the year for the Jawa? Really?
