Re: Palitoy 41 back Rebel soldier MOC. (Beater)

It's a really tough card to find... not many about. From memory the one on ebay which sold had a repaired nameplate. The one at vectis wasnt super mint I dont think, but certainly wasnt a beater.

Re: Palitoy Jeffer Baggies - Valuation

Im not sure 'sticky limbs' on their own means figures are touched up - I sealed some figures in plastic bags for a few years, thinking I was doing the right thing to preserve them.... when I opened them they were almost all sticky (they werent touched up)! I believe it's plastic degradation made wor...

Re: Price rises over ten years

DT figures and vinyl Jawas as well as proof cards have all gone up at least 10x their 2009 values... if only my wages had ;)

Re: Kenner retro collection now available for preorder

Personally I think it will be the opposite and original vintage items will just increase in value. Take Ferrari or any prestige car maker for example, they keep bringing out new ones and the cars from the 60's and 70's just keep increasing in value, that may be a bad example but i'm sure you can se...

Re: Kenner retro collection now available for preorder

A chap I'm friends with on FB hinted at this ages ago and just posted this, which I think is interesting... Gents, I’ve been sitting on this news for 6 months so now that it’s finally out I can breathe better And for those are are still hoping for Tarkins and what could have been? Well, I hate to te...

Mine (12a) is green without a sku footer if that helps!

Re: Vectis Sale 30th January

Wow, that Fett! I’m going to guess £8,000 hammer price? I doubt it will go anywhere near that price as there is a significant litho tear on the front of the card and as Ian pointed out the limbs are faded so whether you grade it or not it is a lower quality piece and 8k is what you pay for an 80/85...

Re: End of 2018 Collecting Review, 2019 goals

in 2017 I gave up my goal of collecting the first 12 on meccano cards and sold what I had (10 of the 12), opting to focus on my Palitoy run. 2018 continued this; added a good few pieces - MOCs, MISB and Diecast I am collecting the SW, ESB and Jedi waves (so 67 figures). I have 18 to go (plus 3 which...

Panini Jedi stickers

I know the individual stickers go for very little, but are there many unopened packs around or countertop boxes (opened or sealed!) around? Does anybody have a feel for the prices of these? I’d be looking for the UK issue panini packs rather Han topps. I have a lot of memories of collecting these as...

Re: Rocket Firing Boba Fett

Are they actually selling though? The hakes one went for 86k and they are famed for crazy pricing. I can’t help but think these sellers are chancing their arm. It doesn’t help when well known owners are blatantly backing up the prices, although whether they’d pay that much who knows. Perhaps I’m jus...

Re: Were you a "one toy line" kid?

Star Wars and Space Lego were the main lines I was bought as a kid - I had a fair bit of both. I also had quite a lot of Britain’s Farm toys. I had a couple of transformers but don’t recal ever getting any bought for me new. I went through a MASK phase and remember getting boulder hill one Christmas...

Re: Elliott Ashton - Memorial Thread

I didn’t know Elliot as well as many others here, but we shared a few good curries as well as texts/emails... mostly after Elliot stopped actively collecting. Funnily enough he was an art guy and I think we had a couple of mutual friends through that hobby too. Top guy who was incredibly kind... RIP...

Couldn’t agree more Spoons. Another nail in the coffin of what was a great hobby.
