Re: Vintage Star Wars collecting where are we at ?

I dont know how to answer this one really - Ive been collecting as an adult for far more of my life than I played with the toys, so some of my nostalgia comes from adult collecting and being able to buy things Id only seen pictures of before. Of course I do get twinges of nostalgia from my childhood...

Looking forward to it - I’ve got a hotel the night before and bringing my wife for the weekend.

Re: Does this look genuine? 15” boxed Vader

The vader inside looks mint, which is a good sign. It isnt above the fakers to put a real price sticker on a fake box - without better pics its hard to tell for sure.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Something Ive been after for a while - Palitoy 3 position laser rifle; box is ok, but has the window still which most seem to be missing and the gun is as close to unused as I think I'll find.

Re: Luke DT Light Saber Real or Fake?

I’m not convinced they came with that bend from the factory Andy - I’ve had a couple without it... 1 sealed in baggie and 1 from a Kenner source, never circulated.

Re: VECTIS AUCTION - Thursday 26th September

Sorry to hear that mate, but it sounds like you’ve got your priorities bang on... you can always buy more toys in the future but getting a clean break you’re happy with, and ensuring the children are minimally disrupted is hugely important.

Good luck with the sale and also the future.

20bk palitoy snaggletooth for sale/trade

I managed to upgrade my snaggletooth so selling/trading the old one. It’s a palitoy 20bk and sealed with a beautiful bubble. At some point it’s had some kind of moisture damage and parts of the card are a bit wavey when angled to the light - displays very well though. Asking £630 plus posting (bear ...

Re: East Bristol Auctions today

No idea this was going on - not well publicised or have I been living under a rock?

Re: Something positive... Pinewood Studio Tour - Raffle for Charity

Right gents, the bbq is on and lunch is cooking so I’ve had a few minutes to select a lucky winner. Thanks to all of you who entered. It’s an awesome experience to see where these things were filmed and hopefully the winner will really enjoy their tour! So, no video I’m afraid as I couldn’t do justi...

Re: Vectis Sale 30th July now online

Get a condition report if bidding on the Luke stormtrooper trilogo. I won one at the last auction and returned it as the bubble was badly lifting - this might be the same one.

Re: Something positive... Pinewood Studio Tour - Raffle for Charity

So all that someone has to do is write their name in this thread. If they get chosen as the winner all they need to do is donate £100 and they get a VIP tour and lunch for 2 (if before September)?? That’s incredible. If their name isn’t picked they aren’t required to pay anything. The lunch for 2 a...
