Re: Don't You Love It When...

I think that's the definition karma. :lol: Nicely done, Edd. It seems to be 50/50 with me; sometimes my offer gets declined, sometimes they accept it for what it is, a fair offer.

Re: Vectis 26th June

Yeah, but don't assume for a moment that those estimates will reflect the final bids. C'mon, it's Vectis! :lol:

Re: My California Trip - Rancho Obi-Wan and Endor!

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Yeah, I was like a pig in shit. I took some video footage too, but I'm not sure anyone wants to hear me screaming like a little school girl. :lol:

Re: Doing the movie marathon this week.

I did the same thing a couple of months ago. I feel the same as you about the prequels now too. Although I never really hated them I just never put them on the same league as the OT, now I have a further respect for them in how they tell the story arc of the Skywalkers. And the pod race sequence, du...

Re: My California Trip - Rancho Obi-Wan and Endor!

And here are some more general shots I took of the forest; my ever supportive and beyond tolerant (of my obsession) girlfriend is visible for scale in this first photo. This place is magical and I will admit to pausing a few times in the hopes I would hear an Ewok battle cry or AT-ST in the distance...

Re: My California Trip - Rancho Obi-Wan and Endor!

And then there's Endor! This place, actually Owen Cheatham Redwood Grove near Eureka, CA, is breathtaking the scale of these trees is like nothing else. I guess that's why old smarty pants Lucas chose the location. :lol: Pictures can't and don't do it justice. Given that Jedi is my favourite of all ...

My California Trip - Rancho Obi-Wan and Endor!

My girlfriend and I just took and amazing trip to Northern California and Oregon and I obviously had to make the trip to Rancho Obi-Wan and make a visit to the Redwoods where I hoped to track down one of the filming locations for Endor in Return Of The Jedi, the Speeder Bike chase backplate footage ...

Fucking ebay twats!

I know this has been covered numerous times, but I needed to rant... I won four lots from a seller (other non-SW vintage toy lines); two lots on one day and then two more a few days later. By the time I won the second couple I asked for the seller to combine postage as one items was just a small acc...

Re: Power of the Force Electronic AT-AT

Typically, anything before 2000 is now termed as vintage on any selling platform you care to choose. If you don’t agree, don’t buy it. Pedantry is not needed, especially when it’s wrong. :) In regards to this forum however, you are wrong. This section is clearly stated as for "Vintage (1977-19...

Re: Deformed figures.

Looks like Lando got a bit too close to the fire. He was definitely bought in that condition? I would have thought QC would have caught that, but maybe he slipped through on a Friday afternoon. :lol:

Re: Valuation help please.

Maybe I'm out of touch, but any main character MOC in that condition has to be worth close to £100 at least, regardless of the cardback.

Re: Hell has frozen over

I've certainly noticed a slow down over the last couple of months in particular, from a selling perspective anyway. Despite trying to save for a big holiday I've still been picking up a steady stream of goodies. But when it comes to selling, items certainly haven't been going at a pace. Personally I...
