Re: Fake Irish 3 Pack Video

Yeah, I agree with that Spoons. Wherever they came from, people obviously like them and collect them so it’s sad that one has been removed from that market.

Re: Fake Irish 3 Pack Video

I’m no expert on these three packs but my understanding of them is that they were a cheeky attempt to make a quick buck off of the back of a donation of weaponless figures from Kenner. If so, does this not make them no more than a curiosity? Collectible maybe, but no better than a Toy Toni item, or ...

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Final

It’s got to be the AT-AT for me. It’s a pretty cool final showdown, though - straight outta Empire :D

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

Those clones do make a nice set... I do wonder if it would be nicer if they had the artwork using the same colour detailing as the figure inside, but it doesn’t really detract from them having them all the same. :)

Snowspeeder is such a cool vehicle, and an amazing toy, but the X-wing wins this one for me :)

AT-AT takes this one for me. They are both amazing toys but the walker was my favourite toy :)

Vader’s TIE and the snowspeeder for me... all three are great vehicles but I found the cockpit on Slave 1 was awkward to put a figure in so it loses out here :)

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - quater final - Match 2

I chose the troop transporter and the AT-AT. They are linked together in my head because I got my AT-AT at a Christmas when I had asked for the troop transporter, and I never had a TIE fighter. :)

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - quater final - Match 1

Oh my, that is one tough round... I loved all three of these as a child, and that makes this a very difficult choice, but I went for the speeder bike and the B-wing. I figure that the X-wing will pick up plenty of votes and went with the fighter that I actually had the pilot for when I was a kid. :o

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 40, 2019, Part 2/2

Here’s my carded commander. A firm favourite figure of mine as a child and this version was a generous gift from my friend Stratpack for my 40th birthday a few years ago.

MLC-3 for me. I had one, and I didn’t have the troop transporter, despite really wanting one, so this was a close call :)

Re: Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Round 2 - Group J

AT-AT wins this one. I love the design of the shuttle, and I loved the first glimpse of it onscreen in ‘83, but the AT-AT was a firm favourite toy of mine, which still has pride of place in my collection. :)
