Re: Grey Limbed Hoth Stormtrooper

There all came from a bad patch of plastic forming and were thus treated as rejects as they went grey pretty quickly that is all. There white on the inside they've just turned grey on the outside. Interesting curio Are there other figures with contrasting limbs similar to this Hoth Stormtrooper? Wo...

I bought this Rebel Soldier on Friday evening on eBay and received it on Tuesday so I can’t complain:
No you certainly can’t :wink: lovely MOC by the way.
Thanks, still trying to get used to the 45b card without the logo.

Re: Competition Etiquette

I would still collect MOC’s if they were cheap or worthless, that said some of them are cheap considering the rarity. At this point in my collecting journey I would be happy for the market to drop and prices to reduce as that would make the rest of the stuff I need cheaper. Once I have got everythin...

Re: MOC Rarity
