Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

If I was a kid I would no doubt think it was fantastic, but for me the storylines are just too simplistic to really grab me, besides the fact it’s Star Wars and I’m a fanboy! You could write the plot on the back of the fag packet - it reminds me of 80s tv in its simplicity, like an episode of knight...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Just watched the third episode. I did enjoy it, and it does feel very Star Warsy which is great, but it’s is very simple story,and I kind of wish there was a bit more to it, a few intertwining storylines perhaps. Every episode also seems to resolve itself, and tv shows are ideal for cliff hangers an...

Re: Repro or not - help needed

Cheers for the advice chaps - I can see the bugger!

This now means I have to sort through my guns again more carefully as the one that I thought was a saltburn repro that I was comparing it with might not be then :lol: All a bloody headache as my eyesight isn’t the best :lol:

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

I do like it but I feel the same about it as I do the animated series Favreau has been involved with. I like the storylines, packed with nice ideas, but there just isn’t enough dialogue in it. This is fine in an animation, but it just feels like it needs to be padded out and a little less linear. Ev...

Repro or not - help needed

Hi all, Picked up a loose lot of vintage for a decent price. There were a few accessories and as it didn’t mention anything in the listing I just assumed they would be repro. When they arrived they felt very good (not like the old repro where they just felt wrong!) and all floated. The ewok staffs a...

Re: Good end to a crummy week...

Cheers 8) I sounded a tad over-dramatic there ... just a run-of-the-mill bog-standard crap week at work :lol: (file under first world problems!). Besides, now I get to play with a Falcon :lol:

Good end to a crummy week...

I’ve had a crappy week but got home this evening to a giant parcel from Chris H (TK7785). Not only had he sent me a lovely falcon and speeder bike that I picked up from him for a very reasonable price, he also packed in a co-pilot for the falcon (see photo attached) Anyway wanted to share this sligh...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Jury is out obviously but it feels like it is actually set in the Star Wars universe - TLJ never did. Only just finished watching season 2 of cobra Kai which I thought was cheesy but great (for kids and grown ups!) Am also enjoying the final season of mr robot. I don’t know anybody else who actually...

Old x wing restoration question

:x Not much of a vintage vehicle collector but picked up an old x wing as you tend to do in job lots - all the usual bits missing though! Although it needs a good clean, the plastic is nice and white and I feel the urge to do it up. Sadly (but typically!) the cost of cannons and the glass cockpit se...

R2 pop up - repro spotting

:oops: Evening all! Most of you will be aware of the new repro pop-up R2s on ebay. Some differences I can see... decal is not quite right - too much white space at the top, and sits much lower on the figure than it should (however this issue could be fixed in time). The biggest difference is at the ...

Re: The Last Jedi

TLJ not only managed to not resolve any of the interesting questions posed by TFA (thereby retroactively making TFA a worse film than it was), but it also finished without leaving anything vaguely interesting for the last film to do.This film will have to almost start again from scratch. Most heinou...
