Re: The next FF.

I remember the first time you described FF to me on the phone, Dave. "Don't expect much. It's a small village hall with a dozen or so dealers. It's tiny". With those words ringing in my ears I checked out the ATCS website and found photos of the previous few events. I was transported back ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

It’s been a while since I posted in this thread. My buying has really slowed down this last year. Mainly due to being even picked about price and item than ever. I have picked up some things of late thanks a couple of fellow forumites, but for now, here are my Echo Live pickups. I wasn’t expecting t...

Re: ROTJ 65 Palitoy Chewbacca MOC value?

I can't recall seeing any Toni's with yellow bubbles, but there could well be. Here you go, Edd. Full on discolouration on a TT bubble. I’ve long said “it’s got a yellow bubble, it’s not a TT” is not a reasonable test, nor even an indicator and think this nails that argument shut. Of note, like a T...

I've seen a couple on the turn. In fact, I'm not entirely sure I haven't got one. Off to check....

Re: Hell has frozen over

I'm finding it really easy not to buy ATM. Other than a lovely little MOC from Stu and a recent pick up thanks to Steve S I really haven't bought much in the way of vintage for some months, well, MOCs at least. I find it easy because whilst I only buy Palitoy/Trilogo I won't get into the insane pric...

Aston’s 26/3/19

Given there really wasn’t much in the way of vintage SW there today I’m not expecting a great response, but I’ll ask anyway: did anyone win anything there today who will be collecting from there in the next week?

Free display cabinets galore

For anyone with the space and a suitable vehicle to shift them, a charity is offering out a few hundred cabinets free of charge. Below is the only photo currently available. Dimensions are not known but it is believed these weigh in at a whopping 150kg each and are thought to be 1.8m high x 1.5m wid...

Re: MOC Empire Strikes Back Palitoy Darth Vader

So this is classified as a 45B version?
And £600-£800 would be a reasonable expectation at auction, but with the chance it could go for more with the right bidders?


You've got it :)

Re: MOC Empire Strikes Back Palitoy Darth Vader

Wonderful :) Palitoy 45B card, which is why you don’t have the Palitoy logo. Vader is quite hard to find which is why one which will make an OK (and only) OK reseal just ended for £54 on eBay. Olisuds (edit - just seen your response now) here has done a bit of a guide on rarity of Palitoy 45Bs and h...

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

I am surprised to see Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) looks like a winner :shock: Me too. Always found him a bit beige. The Stormtrooper is a first 12 icon. He may be reduced to 4 POA but he's a great figures and the ultimate army builder. In true Stormtrooper style it looks like he's going to mis...

Re: Guidance Advised: 2,387 Vintage Figures Melted

Saw this yesterday. I'm still not clear what his point is? Whether it's humour, satire, attention seeking, revenue making, notoriety or plain trolling it's rather lost on me. Other than the obvious fact it's an incredible waste of figures that would be far better off used by kids for what they were ...

Biker Scout is the 43rd best figure and had no right reaching the quarter finals


Which is exactly what a North Korean sympathiser would say.

Or a Trump supporter. I reckon he's both.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Semi Final - Match 1

Just no competition. I'm not much bitter than R2 kicked the Biker Scout, honest, but look at Yoda: great sculpt and no fewer than FOUR (count 'em) accessories! No other figure comes with more! R2? Comes with, erm, a clicking noise. Not something you heard R2 to in the movies. Pah.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Quarter Final - Match 4

Defending Champion is eliminated in what is genuinely a shock result. I demand a recount. This is a BS result in more than one way. Agreed! This must be linked to the Russians. Definitely foul play going on here. And the North Koreans. I reckon they've turned Stu. Only explanation for this result.
