Re: Loose collecting

I started to go down the route of "variant" collecting, but when on display I really couldn't see the point of having multiple figures where the C.O.O is different. I can't *see* that difference on display, so I decided to put the brakes on it. As others have said, if it's a visual differe...

Re: Is Luke Hoth MOC rare?

It doesn't strike me as a particularly rare MOC to get. Perhaps it's just a dry patch, or sales are just passing you by somehow.

Re: New retroline.......

Good luck telling them from vintage originals in bulk lots on eBay (once people open them and play with them - that still happens right?!?). I can forsee a lot of after sale "back and forth" issues to sort out misunderstandings and just plain old misleading listings. Really wish this retro...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 57 LAUNCHED

Many thanks for having me on this month as main interview guest. I really appreciated the opportunity to talk a bit more in depth about Star Wars Tracker and what goes on behind the scenes, and why I do things the way I do. If anyone ever has any comments or questions I'm always keen to hear them. G...

Re: Bossk ESB 31a back Kenner

I'm a little surprised that this variation commands such a premium well beyond others. I admit it's a little bit dangerous to extrapolate relative scarcity of MOC variations from completed sales in Star Wars Tracker (eg, there might be hundreds of 79A examples on eBay right now, but they aren't pric...

Re: Vintage loose valuation

Trying to work out if it is worth grading a set or not... (i.e. would the cost To grade be retained once all are graded).....? I think you need to be really sure of the condition of your figures (ie, really good condition) to go ahead with grading and expect the value to be retained. Here's a bit o...

Re: MOC - Need Valuations

Things had changed a lot since I last bought and sold. Also there seems to be so few MOC's on ebay these days, it's hard to find a like for like comparison. Hi, for some unbiased and impartial help for valuing your items - you may like to give Star Wars Tracker a try - http://www.starwarstracker.co...

Re: Things I cant seem to find a value on

10. Cloud car pilot on 48a Just in case you haven't tried, you can widen the date range on Star Wars Tracker to see if that helps. For example, if I open up the search to the last 5 years then you get 8 prices for the CCP on 48a. Including *graded* in the search can also be helpful to get some insi...

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Quarter Final - Match 2

Yoda for me. I was always impressed at how small the figure is, but how detailed and how many accessories. Good things come in small packages.

Re: Items you now regret selling?

My regrets are a really long time ago back in the year 5 playground. Sold a handful of my shop bought figures for extra pocket money. The upshot is that I sold them to one of my best mates who I'm still in contact with - we both became big vintage collectors in the early 90s like most of us. He stil...
