Re: U Grade FAQ

As a fan returning to collecting for the first time since the 80s, and who had no idea at first about the AFA or indeed U grading, this guide has proved incredibly informative and invaluable. I'll echo the majority of responses: why would you do it? I suspect all future collectors will look back on ...

Re: The Empire Strikes Back premiere programme: 20th May 198

Rob: Looks like there were quite a few of us lucky enough to get the Death Star for Christmas back in 1978. It'll be like Christmas all over again when you get your new (to you) playset :D Wrighty: Cheers mate, I'll be interested to see what they go for- although now I've been drawn back in to the S...

Re: The Empire Strikes Back premiere programme: 20th May 198

Very glad to be in such good company, Michael Sith :D Thanks for your kind comments. Alas, all those figures and playsets were passed on to my nephews when I became 'too old for toys' when I was 13/14 back in '83/'84. Gladly, they were very much appreciated and played with constantly... but after a ...

Re: The Most Obnoxious Repro dealer

His boasting will hopefully come back to bite him... there's nothing like leaving a record of your criminal activities online, for potentially the entire world to see. You've got some damning evidence there, tiefighterboy. What goes around will surely come around :wink:

@chazb73 That would be fascinating... "These aren't the droids you're looking for". Slight pause, then a "hyak hyak hyak" laugh that only Sid James could produce :lol: I'm pleased to report that I'm no longer a one post wonder... I've been coming back to this forum daily since jo...

Re: The Empire Strikes Back premiere programme: 20th May 198

Thanks for your comments, and after having held on to these for the past 33 years, I have decided the time has come to let go. My classic car is in need of restoration, and I figured that the sale of these two items could go some way towards that. It was my mother who got hold of the tickets, just t...

The Empire Strikes Back premiere programme: 20th May 1980

Hi, while I'm new to this forum, I am a rather old Star Wars fan- having being hooked right from the start at the tender age of 7 years old back in 1977. I'll get straight to the point: I have for sale on eBay two items- one is of my souvenir programme for the royal charity premiere of The Empire St...

Re: ONE POST WONDER SELLING! PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU LIST ITE

Many thanks for the warm welcome, capetown- very much appreciated :D ...and I have to admit, any spare time I have had over the last few days has been spent getting acquainted with the original Palitoy action figures et al... I can feel myself getting drawn in once again, like a moth to a flame! Her...

Re: ONE POST WONDER SELLING! PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU LIST ITE

Good evening all, I have read your misgivings and understand your concerns. As I would possibly count myself as a 'one post wonder', being a somewhat lapsed Star Wars fanatic these past 25 years, having being hooked right from the start back in '77... I thought it best to introduce myself first befo...
