Re: Valuation request for 2-1b and fx-7 moc

McDade’s was a catalogue style retail outlet (similar to Argos) based in Chicago and traded between 1958 and 1987. I have an ESB carded figure with the same price sticker. None of the above affects the value but just thought I’d chuck that into the mix in case you were interested! 95F04627-3BD7-4912...

Re: AT-AT Driver Empire strikes back value?

Seen a couple of these now that AFA have miss labelled - it’s a Palitoy 41A not 41C. That said, it doesn’t affect the value of the item; I’d say Andy was about there with his valuation - I’d maybe go a smidge higher if asked to lean one way or the other. Very nice - better than my one in fact; quite...

Re: Best Buy of 2019

I’ve had a good year of collecting and managed to pick up some great bits along the way. My favourite has to be my Fascal store display... Fuelled completely by nostalgia I’ve been looking for one for years - I remember these very displays and buying the stickers from my local newsagent to stick on ...

Re: eBay selling glitch

Yeah apparently so but no indication of how long it will take to fix. I can’t send out any invoices for combined shipping. Mine’s doing the same - the items concerned aren’t searchable either. I did manage to find one because it was relisted so I could go into the previous version then click ‘view ...

According to Google translate, the direct Italian interpretation of Land Speeder would have been ‘Acceleratore Di Terra’ which sounds a little less like it was co...
