Re: Star Wars Palitoy documentary coming to BBC4

Oh I see it's on a week early in the midlands. Everyone can see it on iplayer after that broadcast Best watch it live or record on my PVR. I’m one of the unfortunate buggers who have a Samsung smart TV and iPlayer has stopped working on it as of 9th December. No plans to issue a software update unt...

Great examples Lars. Beautiful SW MIB Jeremy. Love the artwork on this one. I’d like to get my hands on a Star Wars boxed one too. Sit better with my collection. Sadly my Falcon is one of the only pieces I haven’t photographed. Maybe soon.

Re: The Vintage Rebellion Episode 66 Launched

Fascinating interview with Blake Edgerton. Some simply amazing stories such as the passing up of a dumpbin full of 50 POTF Yak Faces at $1 each or the rescuing of a Star Wars 12” figure collection from the destructive hands of some little Aussie rugrats. But by far the most interesting was the $5 sh...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Love those Oral B toothbrushes. Always bring back memories. Would like to get hold of a set one day myself.

Until recently I couldn’t of told the difference between any of them apart from the dark armour, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide. Pics attached. Thanks. It's difficult to be certain without having one in hand, or seeing a side-by-side comparison pic with some other variants, but on first glan...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 48, 2019

Here are my two Spanish PBP Dengars. I also have a 2 line Coo version (Smile) and a 3 line version hopefully for Christmas. I’m after an affordable 4 line Coo version but that one is hard to come by in the UK.

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 48, 2019

Dengar! Back in 1980, this was a very exciting figure for me. Having been blissfully ignorant of the mail-away Boba Fett offer here in the UK (mainly due to me not reading comics at the time and hence never seeing the adverts), Dengar represented my first ever experience of sending away for an unre...

Re: I have a confession

Glad you didn't hate It, its not a bad movie, the prequals are just not as good as the Original Trilogy, I find myself hardly watching them lately, if its a choice I always go for the OT They all have good parts, but as a whole they just are not that great, I wanted to love them all equally, but no...

Re: I have a confession

I found myself enjoying it much more than the first two, but I can’t help think that it would have been more powerful portrayed in a similar vain to The Joker, but I’m not sure Haden Christensen has it in him :lol: The inconsistencies leading to the original trilogy are glaringly obvious too, but at...

I have a confession

I’m writing this as I sit down to watch Revenge of the Sith for the very first time. :shock: I can’t quite believe I’ve never seen it but I hated Attack of the Clones so much that I walked out of the cinema disillusioned by the franchise and vowing I’d never watch it. Funny really as so many people ...

Just saw this on Echo:

Word from David Whiteley on Twitter - we now have a date for the diary for the SW toy documentary (in the UK)

Toy Empire - 9PM BBC4 Monday 16th December

Followed by the extended ‘The Galaxy Britain built’

Looks great!
Great. Thanks for the info
