Re: Star Wars board game appreciation.

For me the only game nostalgia that I have is for Assault on Hoth by West End Games which was published in, I think, ‘88. I still need to pick up an open copy to play as the one I have is sealed That game needs a premium rerelease ! I've never really played any vintage Star Wars games as they look ...

Thanks. Yeah, the condition is mixed. I was obviously heavy handed as a kid!
That's what they were made for.

As everyone else says , I reckon you'd get 400 ish for the lot as shown and 600 if you break them up , take careful photographs etc

Re: How much is reasonable for the vintage max rebo band figure set?

:?: Should it be priced at anywhere close to a grand?

Obviously the seller can ask whatever they like for their stuff, and the buyer can choose to pay it or not ... bbbbbut the short answer is no, that's insane :lol:

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

3 hours in the sun today and no improvement. I can't get inside the bubble without damaging it. I have messaged the seller about a refund :( You should definitely get a refund. Surely that's the kind of thing that should be mentioned when selling. If I picked it up at a bargain beater price and it ...

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

Can you locate any gap/crack on the bubble? It is lifting slightly in the bottom right corner, but I don’t think it’s enough to get something in to clean it Rather than get something in could you possibly suck the mould out? ie use a vacuum cleaner (carefully) to suck the debris out. Maybe a suctio...

Re: Do you think we are currently in a bubble?

I reckon there will always be demand for minty Mocs and MISBs, and other harder to find stuff. They are pop culture history and there will always be enough collectors for genuine rarities and the cream of the crop. Another question is how long will the things survive. The idea that they've been arou...

Re: Childhood Vintage collection Valuation.

All of the advice I've read here is really good ! Not too sure about the two you've mentioned you want valuations for (as I don't collect those so don't look out for the prices). Still I'd be surprised if I got much change from a grand for both of those you mentioned (if complete and in good order) ...

Re: FORUM FIGURE OF THE YEAR 2021

I missed the final somehow , but no matter, it wasn't even close (I think I would have gone with Yoda too!). There were some closely fought contests in earlier rounds -I'm really liking my ROTJ figures at the moment... Lando disguise and gammy guard , even jabba's goon squad .... so maybe next year ...

Overall, I think the system is better and easier, I just hope they don't up the % over time.
Indeed! Although with the competition maybe PayPal might lower their fees . Fingers crossed!

Grading fail but I guess it’s always possible someone is hoping someone thinks it’s a Lili Ledy blank raised bar (no coo) with Blue Ledy Bespin blaster. Though the face isn’t right for Ledy and the blaster would be the wide grip version.

Great knowledge. Every day a school day !

Re: Mint Boba Fett what’s my worth?

Hard to see on my phone figure limbs look a bit marbled from the photo (?) so might put some off ... still card looks lovely and I bet you wouldn't get much change from a grand if buying it .
