Re: What item did you get for a bargain because of a flaw?

And a black bespin guard revenge proof. Creased across the top and an iffy corner but at £90 (if memory serves correctly) who doesn’t love a bargain bit of pre production. That proof has to be the winner surely? What are they worth in say C9 condition? I don't know anything about proofs At the time...

Re: Celebration 2007

I was collecting at that time in total isolation and although I had collected vintage toys, and still was at that time, I was not active. Potf2 and the following lines had jaded me. I think I was more into Star Wars itsel...

Re: What item did you get for a bargain because of a flaw?

Love this thread.

Here are my two faves. I have a few others as well.

First up, ESB 45 back Fett with a badly cut pop. Just £100 if I remember correctly.

Re: Luke DT Light Saber Real or Fake?

You need to measure it and then speak nicely to someone who has one. This is often the first indicator. The length seems to be a known secret if that makes sense.

Sabres are horrible things to id.

Re: Echo Live VIII - 5 OCT 19

I am also Friday and Saturday at the hotel motel holiday inn.

Should get up there at a sensible time this year as I’m already a 1/3rd of the way there and mostly round the shit bit of the 25 on Friday afternoon as I have scheduled next weeks meetings sensibly.

Re: carded valuations please

Toni had Dutch clipper cards as well as German General Mills cards. These were printed by palitoy as well hence the availability here and as part of the infamous batch sold to Toni. Imperial commander was on the list with both 45a General Mills cardbacks and 45 clipper cardbacks like this one. The l...

Re: carded valuations please

The bubble placement on the toy Toni snowtrooper is all over the place. The seal looks weak as, as well.

That would have come from him really early. That round label has the number of his snoopers cabinet on it I think. He’s had different labels for years and years.

Interesting. Very interesting.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Well, I haven’t posted for a long time. Shame on me. But I have finally picked up a piece I have been patiently waiting for, for a few years. Rare ish but never for sale. Get to edit my signature as well.

Re: Celebration Anaheim 2020

No vip for me this year, but to be honest I’m not too worried after the lottery system last year. That has fixed a lot of the worst things about this. That scramble for tickets was mad, but I think there will be a lot for sale come nearer the time on lyte. Managed to get a hotel room in the hotel bl...
