Re: Unique Action Figure smell!

Stormtroopers are most memorable for me. I swear I have a couple with traces of the whiff.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Here's a silly sideline I've been trying to complete for some years and have finally done so: a set of five knock-off keyrings. Ages ago a poster, I think here, acquired an unused shop hanger full of them which was my guidance. The character choice suggests they're from the 70s. I remember psychade...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Love the keyrings Chipsteak, pure tacky 70s goodness! I'm interested to know whether the R2 is part of this set? I recall the picture of the carded keyrings that you've mentioned, and I thought it was just the 4 other characters. Is R2 plastic like the others, or metal, please? I double-checked tha...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Thanks all. They are plastic, Mini99. Even Artoo is very lightweight.

Re: New retroline.......

Regarding the horrible safety sheets, I'm hoping the Tarkin figure won't require one as it's bundled with a bigger set which should carry its own bumf. As for the others, modern figures traditionally have had these beneath the feet so here's hoping.

Re: Vintage to Modern figures.

Some Vintage Collection MOCs have been worth big bucks for years now. I realized they weren't for me when I saw what they were going for and worked out I'd rather have the cash. Figures released toward the end of the first Vintage Collection line were terribly poorly distributed and, when I last dip...

Re: Which figure would you keep?

I prefer the Kenner one. It's what I personally remember gawping at on pegs. The Trilogo era, although hardly a million years away from a Kenner ROTJ, doesn't hold the fuzzy memories as much for me. I have another obscure reason. I've often spotted a slightly sharper image or nicer contrast on First...

Re: Star Wars 4K77 - Wow

it really is something. I recommend people grab the DNR version. For non videophiles, this means some Digital Noise Removal and a bit of sharpening has been tastefully added. The version without this was a bit grainy even for my usually purist tastes. Also, for those without 4k tellies, 1080p versio...

Collecting Track panels from Celebration on YouTube

I daresay everyone knows about this and I'm late to the party, but the Collecting Track people from this year's Celebration have uploaded pro quality videos of many, many panels. But in case anyone missed out like I nearly did, here's the link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVdkiJTWqI_t5MjR3dVZod...

Re: Boushh Card Back Art

Weirdly, I hadn't noticed it before. It looks like it was done in the same style as the Gam Guard and Klaatu even though those are bordering on Andy Warhol.

Re: Clear plastic inserts inside cardback bubble?

C3P0 removable limbs and Gamorrean Guard too. Earler on, cumbersome figures merely had that bit of folded cardboard to keep them facing forward in the bubble before they went all-out with trays.

Re: Star Wars references in 80s films

The brilliantly bleak British TV film 'Threads' from 1984 about a nuclear attack shows some Star Wars figures that survived the blast. This link takes you straight to a glimpse in the trailer for the recent Bluray. https://youtu.be/2-jrwwCNCxE?t=38 Blast from the past. We studied that in the 3rd ye...
