Re: Sad news regarding forum member Declan McCafferty AKA chipsteak

That's a great send off and really decent of his family to share a picture from what must have been an incredibly difficult day.

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Biker Scout, 65-back Kenner 'Made in Taiwan' TJ. This came from a UK childhood collection and I'm assured that the figure and weapon are both original to the card.

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Leia (Hoth Outfit), Canadian 41-a Kenner. This came from a US seller who sold it as MOC and the figure burst through the top of the bubble during shipping. The original purchaser sent it back and I bought it knowingly in this condition. Due to this I can't be 100% sure the blaster or figure are orig...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I've a couple of other opened MOCs I can contribute, so I'll get them done as soon as I can. Would it be beneficial to have two separate threads? One as a discussion thread and one for the reference information? That way it makes it easier to navigate when looking through the reference information, ...

Re: Has the pandemic changed your attitude to your collecting?

I am not convinced that Vintage Star Wars collecting will wither and die with collectors like us as this has not happened with Comics with Superhero's like Superman dating back to 1938 and Batman 1939 still going strong and comics from that era in high demand even though the children that originall...

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 : 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.

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.
