Re: New Collectables Magazine Out Soon! "What is it worth?" (Trilogos!!)

Hi all, Firstly I would like to thank Joe for the wonderful Trilogo article and his support of this magazine. The first copies were mailed out today. There will also be an initial limited UK regional distribution of the magazine which will hopefully expand over the next few weeks (arranging details ...

Re: R2-D2 mould?

Yeah - chap came on here at one point I think - he is adamant that it is worth loads of money - chaps tried to help him but he lists it up every week at that ridiculous price and it will probably be up for another few years unless he lowers the price (a lot) Thanks for the info. So what was the vie...

Hi all. I publish a magazine called Collectables which is going to be relaunched later this year. We are looking to do a feature on Star Wars. Is there anyone in this group that would like to have their collection featured? Please contact me using the PM facility or follow us on Twitter: https://twi...

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

As far as I'm aware those MoC figures have been stored for many years (probably since first delivered) in manufacturer's outer boxes. Therefore they have been stored in the dark and probably in a relatively good environment when it comes to temperature etc. So all-in-all pretty good if not perfect s...

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

These photos are from the forthcoming Vectis 'shop find' auction. Quite a lot of yellows there. Not sure what this adds to the known facts but I thought it would be worth showing. http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o21/CollectJunkie/11064881_782431855181453_5362350711994053845_n_zpsxqybrit4.jpg http...

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

So how common is it for bubbles to drop off and/or crack for no apparent reason and are there any document cases of this happening after a MoC figure has been graded and slabbed by AFA?

Factory errors

I've seen a number of factory error MoC figures - missing an accessory or two etc. - being sold on eBay. Many of these seem to sell for crazy money. Are they worth these prices and do collectors pay a premium for these factory errors?

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

Thanks to everyone for the posts. Really interesting. In my opinion the yellowing of bubbles is down to chemical reactions within the products used. Because these figures were originally made over a period of years and also made at different factories then the chemical mix for some of the elements (...

Re: Upcoming Vectis auction/toy shop find

It's good to see that Vectis have reverted to the 'auction norm' of quoting 'come and purchase me' estimates.

Re: General Madine | Trilogo.info *Major Update*

Excellent read. It is weird how things have progressed in the last 15 years when it comes to Trilogo figures. They seem to have gone from the forgotten cousins often placed in bargain bins to some of the most highly desirable pieces. I know it's an impossibility to know how many figures still exist ...

Re: Yellowing bubbles - observations

Very good points 'PalitoyJunky'. Bit worried about what you said about perfect MoC figures being stored for years for them only to degrade and even self-destruct :o I know these pieces were only made as toys and not manufactured to have any longevity. However, collectors today are paying serious mon...
