Re: Old Comic Star Wars Adverts

Re: Forum Playset of the Year 2019

I second all the above when I'm bored at work it does cheer me up to vote and laugh at the comments, without the enthusiasm you and others put into the forum it would be a lesser place to hang out, keep it up Lars :)

Re: Latest Acquisitions

That Texas Instruments watch brings back memories, really nice example, think a friend had one at school, and we all, (of a certain age ), remember speak and spell and speak and maths, ," spell colour, c o l o u r that's incorrect, the correct spelling of colour is c o l o r ??????? confusing t...

Re: Grading and shill bidding issues that have come up

Maybe they fell off inside the case? :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: It’s funny but it shouldn’t be... It seems strange that there has been no response from any of the grading companies as far as I’m aware. Even if they were to acknowledged the inconsistency of some items that have been graded and why som...

Re: Old Comic Star Wars Adverts

Hello All thought I would bump this thread as I found one more star wars advert from 1978 the other day whilst reading vintage 2000ad, not the most colourful of examples but new to this thread and I know some members do have a documentary interest in these types of adverts, any excuse to flash some ...

Re: Haslab Khetanna

This was an interesting video and update from RetroBlasting worth a watch, I do believe Hasbro should take some responsibility for their lack of willingness to distribute these to other location's than just North America , They should pay some consideration to the numbers of collectors that have bou...

Re: Discolored Vintage Star Wars Toy

Max Rebo does suffer from bad plastic degradation, I'm no expert as my one is ok from memory, but I seem to remember other treads on here about the state that this figures colour can get into, might be worth a search on here, seem to remember the legs and arms being much lighter than the body on bad...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 12, 2019, Part 2/2

Some really nice Bossk action here, especially love the Mexican bootleg and the battle damaged one (think we should have a close up of that head, Apack, horrific, ), I only have my childhood one and its card, eyes left ! think you can just see his cap2 in the background on patrol on Tatooine :) and...

Re: Star Wars Toys a rip off in UK

And why is the selection here so lame? It takes months, if not a year to get some of the figures that were supposed to be in the first or second wave. Maybe Hasbro just can’t be arsed with Star Wars anymore in the UK? Sorry if this is an old moan and has been covered before.[/quote] I think that I h...

Re: Buying in the 80's how we used to buy figures

Thanks for all the memories guys, I remember being mesmerized by all the wall of dioramas on all the boxes lined up in the toy shops back then, I think the magic was having the figures well placed around the ships / playsets in the photo's, I don't think you get that with the more modern toys, be it...

Re: Star Wars Dream again

Sounds like a cheese dream to me, had you been eating cheese before bed, :D I used to have a reoccurring dream where I bought a storage locker and under the usual rubbish was a vintage star wars collection, Palitoy Death Star playsets the lot, all for me, then you wake up and it time for work, anoth...
