Re: The future of Vintage Star Wars collecting

We seem to be in a boom period for collecting vintage Star Wars, with many children of that period now having a high amount of disposable income, but what does the long term future hold? I've witnessed first hand the Matchbox, Dinky etc. die-cast car market changing rapidly due to collectors, to pu...

Re: Vintage Star Wars in Glasgow's Transport Museum!

And the trusty old ZX and Jet Set Willy! Thanks for posting these pictures. My favourite Spectrum game! And I think I also spy a copy of 'Underwurlde' :-) I took a picture of the games! I love the Speccy (and had the honour of writing for the Crash annual 2018 and 2019 the past couple of years!) so...

Vintage Star Wars in Glasgow's Transport Museum!

I went to Glasgow transport museum today. Amidst the 100 year old trams and cars, I discovered some vehicles I wasn't quite expecting! Excuse the lousy picture quality. My phone was dying when I discovered this little lot and only managed to get a few decent pictures before it died. There was a life...

Re: SWFUK Secret Santa 2018 Wishlists - Let me know if your gift has arrived

Mine arrived today! Along with a note that made me chuckle and caused my girlfriend to say "bloody hell, it's someone who chats as much nonsensical rubbish as you!"
:D

Very much appreciated anyway SS! Looking forward to opening on Christmas morning!

Re: End of 2018 Collecting Review, 2019 goals

Well 2018 I got my spark for collecting vintage back! I had been side tracked by my collecting retro video games, but whilst perusing Japanse auction sites for vintage Nintendo Famicom games, I happened across a strange Takara Tomy metal R2D2 figure. Intrigue made be stick a bid on and then I spent ...

Re: SWFUK Secret Santa 2018 Wishlists

Hey Santa! My fav time of the year! I've been positively angelic this year as I do get excited about SS and wouldn't wanna miss out! Okaaay. Here are a few things I'm after. Loose Rancor- I appreciate this is very very unlikely to come up within our budget but stranger things have happened! Been aft...

Re: Waterstones diaries

I saw some Gift Bags in WHSmiths like that! Bit different but very similar. I was pointing out to my girlfriend that Boba had the wrong colour blaster on the picture, and I was 90% sure the Stormtrooper blaster was a repro as it looked grey! She's a massive nerd herself, but I got a look from her th...

Re: So are all collectors the same?

I'm not particularly wealthy, so there's no chance of me ever considering a carded collection. Does that make me a non-serious collector? I really couldn't care either way. I have a banging collection of loose complete figures that I have acquired mostly from forum members since I joined up here, an...

Re: Query about item damaged during transit with Global Shipping

Heya guys, just thought I'd post an update in case anyone was interested. Contacted seller, he was a top bloke, really friendly and eager to sort it all out. He said he would give me a partial refund and try and get reimbursed by eBay as it was their fault. He seemed quite concerned by his seller ra...

Query about item damaged during transit with Global Shipping

Heya guys, Just wondered if anyone had ever had anything get knackered during transit via GSP? I bought a joblot of Funko mini figures from the Fallout 4 game. Arrived yesterday from America and two of the figures are broken. They weren't particularly well packaged with all of the figures just in zi...

Re: General Grumbling

Sellers not offering to combine postage, particularly on small, low value items. I was recently trying to buy around 15 PSP games, non of which had cases and all of which were around 80p to £1.20 from one seller. Now I probably should take some of the blame on this as I didn't ask prior to placing ...

There's the spirit of the forum right there :D nice one Indy :D Agreed Mike! I spend a bit of time on FB groups and there's so much greed and unpleasantness and there's just none of it here. This place is just a paragon of decency and friendliness! Here are a few pictures of Luke hoth. Let me know ...
