Re: New retroline.......

Yep, it could get very confusing! Both mine were identical to the US version I picked up besides a splash of black paint where it shouldn’t be. No big deal but enough to get them plucked out at the quality control stage I’m guessing. The excess paint was removed very easily. Assuming the black c num...

Re: New retroline.......

Another heads up for vintage loose collectors - the blaster does not have a number printed on it either like the official one I picked up from the States.

Re: New retroline.......

Hi all, Picked up some retro collection stormies on eBay for army building from a seller in the Philippines. Some had minor paint errors (nothing that couldn’t be scraped off easily) so possibly B-stock etc However I noticed the figures don’t have the very obvious additional ‘C’ code stamp on the ri...

cheers Richard - I didn’t know that - I thought it was pre-order only at the mo - are these imported stock (not hasbro U.K. stock)? What’s the price looking like?

Re: New retroline.......

Think I read somewhere the release date for wave 1 is end of August. However there are rumblings this might change (possibly delayed). They have been released in some stores in Australia already by all accounts so probably easier to get there than they are here? The stock levels in Target stores see...

Re: Monkidoodle's Vehicles For Sale Thread

Heads up! The seller never opened my message so these may well have sold elsewhere.

Re: Leia 20 back & R2 ESB 31 back pic heavy

Given the condition I was thinking about 100-120 each, but it’s very difficult to say. Personally I would keep these as they present nicely. I sold some reseal 12-backs last year and I regret it now because they looked awesome on display for not all that much money (compared to moc anyway!). Maybe a...

Re: New retroline.......

Apparently the U.K. stock is going to be from a different production run (heads up variant collectors!) and its uncertain whether they will have the safety sheets at this time.

Probably worth holding off cancelling pre orders until we see what they look like.

Re: New retroline.......

Perhaps it’s something Hasbro doesn’t have a choice about if it’s a legal requirement over here. Having seen the imported ones in hand I actually didn’t mind the sticker. It’s nicer than it appears in photos, and personally I don’t think I’d attempt to remove it. The ageing affect on the card isn’t ...

Re: New retroline.......

Well that sucks. What the hell is a safety sheet? Some sort of inane EU regulation no doubt! Will cancel my preorder and import.

Re: Episode 9...your personal feelings

Oh I will definitely watch it. But it won’t be at midnight like force awakens. I’m just meh about them. If nothing else it makes me appreciate of the genius of the writing and editing of the original films (apart from the production / casting / music / sound effects and everything else) even more. T...

Re: What do you want to see from Hasbro

Sounds like you’re in luck! Press release earlier today says the retro collection are no longer a target exclusive and will have a general release in the fall. The Press release early bird packs are very cool - and would seem like wave 2 very likely... http://www.jedinews.co.uk/collecting/articles/h...

Re: Haslab Jabbas Sail Barge Khetana star wars vintage collection limited edition for sale

I would have no idea what I’d do with it. I wouldn’t want to display it. It’s an impractically huge, brown lump and although the box art is nice - it is ultimately covered in modern vintage line figures, which I’ve no interest / love for. And for me, I think keeping it in storage to sell on down the...

Re: New retroline.......

Yep I noticed that around the belt... although to be fair most of my vintage Mocs have far from perfect paint apps under close inspection, so perhaps par for the course really.
