Re: Competition Etiquette

The short answer is there is none, etiquette when it comes to buying things. Unless it's someone you know well, a collecting friend. It's very cutthroat these days, people are essentially selfish and will try to get what they want. Also I think there is definitely trends and people copying others in...

Re: The LEGO Corner

That's a nice way to spend the morning and it looks great and Luke could always crawl inside, I'm sure he'd be up for it :D Ian Yeah it looks like the doors too small but on the real one the stairs go down inside the doorway so he’d be low enough to get in. I made the proportions about right but no...

Re: The LEGO Corner

I made this this morning. Getting into making my own Star Wars creations. In hindsight I could have made the entrance tunnels a bit smaller but it was just a quick build. May do an improved version :D

2000 Greedo's does sound cool though! :lol:

Re: Army Building and Focus Collecting Friend or Foe?

I think people collect the way they want to collect. It’s a personal thing and each individuals ideas and goals reflect their taste. I think figure focuses and army building are completely different things. I get focuses, all the different mocs and anything relating to that figure. I don’t really ge...

Re: Childhood Toy shop

Wow! Cheers for all the posts. I really find all this stuff fascinating and love hearing others stories about their toyshops etc. Those lucky enough to have examples really are fortunate, especially from one offs or small chainstores. SublevelStudios I know that feeling of the department store Mark....

Re: Childhood Toy shop

Andy, what a brilliant story! Shame he won't let any go- have you asked if he would let you have an individual sticker? Would love a price sticker from my favourite childhood toy shop- GW Hurley in Burnham-on -Sea. Used to go when we visited my Gran. Never, ever seen a price sticker, but you've giv...

I couldn’t think of an answer. :lol: This line has left my lips on numerous occasions... I still have one cabinet :lol: I think I've had a similar resp...
