Cheers Ian, thanks for the kind words.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Some fantastic additions lately lads, coomber75 i love the storyboard! I’m delighted to finally get a Force Beam today having wanted one ever since seeing the ads on the back of Star Wars Weekly. It was sold as not working but a bit if tinkering got it fired up again! It’s missing the handguard, if ...

Re: Brand new star wars vintage figures but confused

Thanks mate, I appreciate the offer but I'll pass for now, just spent quite a bit over the weekend. Good luck with the sale, I'm sure there will be plenty of interest.

Re: Wow - this is shocking.

There's a very easy answer to the repro question and that is to make them very easily identifiable - either by colour or moulding. If the repro makers stuck to that, and making customs of figures and other toys that never existed, then I think most if not all of the conflict would go away and they w...

The only SW I got was a Death Star maze game from the kids, and the Rise of Skywalker art book, which is great - but very much related to SW, my main gift this year was an IKEA Detolf cabinet, which is my first opportunity to have some of my collection on display!
