Re: Forum Playset of the Year 2019 - Final

No brainer for me - Palitoy DS every time. A design classic and worthy of all the accolades it receives.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Wow, that large head Han is a find and a half, as Andy says, a rarity in any condition. Is the bubble on this different from the small head too?

Well done mate :)

Re: The next FF.

Respect the desicion Dave, you might find a break will recharge the batteries and get everyone fired up for the next one - too long without an FF is bad for you.

As always, just let me know if you need any help with anything.

Re: 41 discovered card Proofs

Another thing to note is the hole punch - this would never be printed and appear on the card.

Re: ESB Imp Stormy 32 Back another Project/Rescue

Nice piece Mike! A Hoth Trooper focus collector would go nuts for this!

How did you manage to eliminate the wave in the bubble? I've always had problems with this myself, boxes are a piece of cake as they iron out fine but MOCs have always been harder to do.

Re: 41 discovered card Proofs

Litho print doesn't run like this in my experience. Water does not affect the ink in that way, it damages the card sure, but the inks won't run. This looks like inkjets to me. To find such proofs in the UK like this would be very strange, especially the 12 backs. The colours also look washed out. I ...

About right IMO, given the condition - and the Takara Tie is actually not as rare as you think, one of the easier foreign Diecasts.

Re: Grading and shill bidding issues that have come up

Yep, 2 entirely different topics that are linked to the same issue. Grading. Never have, and never will be a fan of this personally BUT I understand it has a place in collecting and as such accept it's always going to be there. However, this current drama has raised a couple of questions to the reli...

Took me a while to realise the Tie Pilot (and At At Driver) helmets are just stormtrooper face plates stuck into X Wing helmets :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Unique Action Figure smell!

So you did! I completely missed your post mate! Sorry! It was mentioned at the Palitoy talk last year too, I think one of the chaps said the figures were stored alongside the Strawberry Shortcake figures enroute from HK and when the container was opened they realised the Tie Pilots had the same smel...

Re: BBC Star Wars Collecting Article Today

Nice to see a relatively balanced and grounded article about collecting for a change. Thanks to Matt for putting me forward for the article. The Journalist was a really nice chap and even showcased a few bits of my artwork, which he didn't need to do :) So tempted by that die cast Tie Bomber with th...

Re: Droid factory (loose) valuation

Missing a few bits including the real value which is the R2 unit, you're looking at about £25-30 as is - you'd get more piecing it all out but it's a ball ache doing that.
