Re: Latest Acquisitions

I've not posted here in what feels like an eternity, although I have been lurking ;) Doubt I'll ever get a better example of a 30 back Fett than this cardback - and even this cost me an arm and a leg! :D But it's a corker! I'm now only needing ONE card/re-seal away from completing a full SW and ESB...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I can help with a Palitoy Pin Head 12 back. Mine comes with a dark green V3: V3 Dark Green.jpg V3 Dark Green 2.jpg Jeremy, this is great. This is more along the lines of what I would of expected. I’ll pm you for more info in the next few days. Just wondered if you think my Han one from the sealed L...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I thought these pictures might be useful as well for Han, especially for his blaster. This is a fully sealed Palitoy 12 back Han cut card that I've mounted to a 12 back card using a top loader (so that it's not been glued). I've included a couple of pictures that I took a while back when I made a t...

Re: Sad news regarding forum member Declan McCafferty AKA chipsteak

Although I didn't know Declan personally, the outpouring of condolence from this forum is not only a tremendous credit to its members, it also shows how much affection he was held in. Thanks edd_jedi for passing on Kieran's message and photo of the wonderful send off they gave Declan. I'm sure you p...

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

That's a terrific first result, Edd! Well done so far, and hopefully another go can remove what little of the mould remains.

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

I had a thought. How about a very long, thin blade or knife? If you could insert it through the gap in the blister, you might be able to literally scrape off the mould and bring it back to the gap on the end of the blade. Brushing off the mould risks dislodging it and spreading it around inside the ...

Re: Removing mould inside bubble?

How about an interdental brush, but extended in some way? It would certainly be fine enough and has a built-in brush at the end:

Re: Vintage box dimensions question

Hi John, Welcome to the forum. Which vehicles are you needing the box dimensions of? I may be able to help with a lot of them, but I would need to know which vehicles, the make of each one (Kenner, Palitoy, etc.) and which box issue for each one (SW, ESB, ROJ, T-L, etc.). Boxes sizes can vary depend...
