Stormtrooper - painted hands?

I've had the Stormtrooper 3-4 years now. I bought it as part of a lot which had a mixture of genuine and repro weapons. All the other figures in the lot were fine but I'm not happy with the hands on this one; they really look like they've been painted with black gloss and are shinier than my other S...

Re: Ben sabres - legit or repro?

Thanks, that's good to know. I got the lettered hilt saber as part of a lot of figures I bought years ago which came with a lot of repro accessories. I think I just float tested it and put it to one side - I never even noticed the letter till yesterday. I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping it but if I ch...

Ben sabres - legit or repro?

Can anyone help with a couple of Ben sabres please. I've stared at these till I'm nearly bog-eyed and I'm still not sure. First one: From TIG it looks like it's a flat transition/normal tip. It's a floater even when pushed under water. Vintage sabre 1-1.jpg Vintage sabre 1-2.jpg Second one: I've had...

For Sale: Cloud Car Pilot RotJ 48-back MOC

For Sale : Kenner ROTJ 48-back 'Cloud Car Pilot' MOC. £120 + postage. CARD had some issues. I'll be completely transparent about these and hopefully don't make it sounds worse than it is. The most obvious is the damage on the right where the litho has been torn off. It's punched, there's wear aroun...

CCP RotJ 48 back MOC

It looks like I'll be moving this CCP MOC on. It's not in great condition as can be seen but it factory sealed. It also has the 'coin' sticker on the front. I notice loose CCPs seem to have gone nuts price-wise over the last few months so I really don't know how to price it, and I want to make sure ...

I hadn't forgotten :) I'll definitely give you a shout once I've decided what to do. TBH I'm probably going to put it up for auction as I'm really not sure what it's worth.

Die-cast Y-wing with box and bubble

Can anyone help with a valuation on this die-cast Y-Wing with box and bubble? It was last valued on here about a year ago but I decided not to sell; now it's time to let it go. It's the box with the revised text(the very one seen on the cardback variations page of vintagestarwarsdiecast.co.uk), ship...

Re: Bob's Fett prices

I'd say the Mandolorian is a significant factor, but not the only one. I've just sold a modern Lego Fett 'buildable figure' (an unwanted gift) and was amazed at how much they're going for these days.

Re: Cool story bro !!

That's brilliant. I only remember being bought 1 figure by one of my grandmas, and that was Klaatu. Having a carded Fett turn up with that backstory is really special. All my collection was sold in the 80s, but in the early 90s I found a single hoth backpack in with my lego. That's the nearest I've ...

Re: Anyone else having a vintage drought?

I was pretty sure I hadn't purchased anything this year but when I looked at my spreadsheet I was shocked to see it was April 2019 when I last made a purchase. I think this year hasn't helped - in addition to all that's been going on I've been dealing with extra responsibilities at work and a house ...

Re: Why is Star Wars so hard to find?

I actually read this a day or so before you'd posted it :D I always find it interesting to hear someone else's perspective on things like this, though it's interesting it chooses not to go down the 'fan edit' line.

Re: EV-9D9 arm swap

I didn't get chance to take Poncho up on his kind offer; the arm on one of the EV's snapped off when I tried to move it. It meant I could transfer it over to the other but not in the way I'd wanted.
