Re: Tri logo ATAT Commander & 79-back Klaatu Skiff MOC valuations

Klaatu card is flat but has some creases, and the main issue is the damage on the front by the logo. Bubble is yellow but no dings.

Tri logo ATAT Commander & 79-back Klaatu Skiff MOC valuations

I'd appreciate some help with valuations on thesetwo. The ATAT commander card is flat but has several heavy creases across the card. Bubble is sealed but crushed pretty badly, and it feels like there might be a small crack on one of the corners - difficult to tell with the crushing. 20190331_131453....

Re: Clear plastic inserts inside cardback bubble?

There are other figures like this. I have Teebo and Boussh with these plastic trays, and I remember my childhood Boussh had one too.

Re: Make a difference

There is so much negativity in the world today, my mind set is if you an make a difference and raise a smile, then that's a plus point in life. Even if it's just a little thing you do on the forum , then that's a start, there are tooo many things going on in the world that are negative, so anything...

EV-9D9 arm swap

So I have two vintage EV-9D9 figures; one which only has a right arm and one which only has a left arm. In both cases the arms are still attached and pretty stiff. I'd really like to take an arm from one to use on the other without causing any damage to the figures or arms. Does anyone have any advi...

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

We bought through conventional toy stores, and sold up not longer after the 77-backs started appearing on shelves so I missed out on the bargain bins of the mid/late 80s. I started collecting again in the early/mid 90s, and my favourite memory of collecting was reading through Model and Collector's ...

Re: The future of Vintage Star Wars collecting

Great post. One of the things I love about SWFUK is we're able to have discussions/debates like this without resorting to meme wars! Personally I'm sceptical about how much vintage SW toys will command in the future. As has been mentioned the price of Dinky etc... has nosedived, and I've seen a simi...

Re: Original Blu-Rays

Please don't buy the despecialised editions. People have put years of effort into creating these fan edits and making them available to download for free, then scum come along and spend a couple of hours putting them onto blu-ray and knocking a couple of covers together and charge ridiculous amounts...

Interestingly she's a short-pour on her right foot.
