Re: Latest Acquisitions

Cracking re-seals Andy, it's a really satisfying run to put together and an awesome display.

Ian (Palifan) is a gent and pleasure to deal with too - he's helped me and many others here on their quest to put these Palitoy runs together.

Re: Unusual Pre Cert Empire Strikes Back Pal VHS

Would the VHS release be on Paramount? I thought they came out on 20th Century Fox or CBS Fox, also the mention of Georgetown Productions on the label is odd as they produced the Friday the 13th films and were owned by Paramount Pictures. Certainly never seen one like that before. Good point - and ...

Re: Unusual Pre Cert Empire Strikes Back Pal VHS

Never seen this before, my first thought was pirate but I'm not so sure now. It's feasible that this is an early regional edition of the film, or possibly even produced by a chain of stores specifically for their outlets. I'm constantly amazed at how much certain videos fetch these days, a copy of t...

Re: Interesting news article about Elvis memorabilia

There are some parallels here, they're both pop culture icons for sure. Trouble is when Elvis died, a large part of his appeal died too, meaning only fans who can relate to that era are largely driving any market for collectibles - the true collectors pieces anyway. Star Wars is a different animal -...

Re: James Martin / Waltham Wookiee

He put up one hell of a fight - took a lot of strength and courage to do that and it appeared at one stage he looked like he's won, or had certainly got the upper hand. Still have the SWFUK mug he did for the forum a few years ago. He always did some cool swag for Celebrations! Remember that VME too...

Re: Modern Podcast Shows on Generation Skywalker

I don’t collect modern but these were actually a really good listen. Need to stop listening though otherwise I’ll tread the same path as @SublevelStudios :lol: There's some really decent modern stuff coming out just recently, I just can't resist - the ppower of the Dark Side! That said, Hasbro have...

Re: Generation Skywalker

Out of interest was the chew box on the enhanced podcast yours and if so is it filled with chew sweets or are those a few opened wrappers on top of it? Ian No, I think that might be Craigs and he mocked up a load of wrappers filled the top layer so it looked fully stocked! He's a clever lad that Sp...

Re: Generation Skywalker

Great podcast as ever guys and I used to keep my SW figures in the Trebor Chew Box and it's one of my great regrets letting it go years ago but it was nice to see such a fantastic looking one on the enhanced podcast. I'm guessing that's Marks and I did wonder if that's just a few chew wrappers on t...

Re: Next Vectis Auction?

does anyone know who the former employee was? They worked in the accounts/finance dept and pretty much everything was obtained by them through the Palitoy shop onsite. That includes some of the Action Man and misc stuff that appeared in the auction. The guys son actually popped up on the Palitoy gr...

Re: Palitoy Yoda Hand Puppet

The last one I sold (about 8 months ago) was in slightly better shape - never been played with but not sealed. I got £150 for it almost straight away no questions asked :D So I might have pitched it slightly less than what it could have fetched. I'd say start it about there, maybe £150 and see how i...

Re: Childhood Toy shop

What a cracking thread Rob - great result. I think this hammers home why some of us collect, the nostalgia, that connection with our childhood and the memories we have of happy times :) I generally don't collect anything that is outside the UK in terms of brands BUT there is the odd exception, like ...

Re: Palitoy Death Star Canopy

I've always thought any clear ones must be repro but I was told not so long ago that one of those sealed examples that turned up at Vectis (Frank Beech auction I think) was opened and it had a clear canopy inside.

That said, I think I'd only ever feel 100% about a yellowed one.

Re: Another quick reseal

Looks the business Ian.

And an interesting price label too - there's a sentence I thought I'd never say.
