Re: 50 year anniversary figures

I like Greedo but I'm not so sure on the rest. The plastic cape on Ben seems like a slightly odd choice to me and I like the look of the cloth caped Jawa but like Ben it feels like they both have soft/plastic clothing accessories over their sculpted clothing. I guess the original Jawa was like this ...

Re: Baggie remove?

I am not totally driven by value and profit. The whole point of having a collection as I do is for my own personal pleasure. I think you have answered the question that it will make a MASSIVE difference to the value which was my actual question. I expect to leave these all to my children to do as t...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Good to see you got one and I still have my childhood one although the plastic 'blade' is missing. Between my missing part and your missing handgaurd we've got a complete one :0 One stage thing is that Marvel allowed this advert for a non official Star Wars items, I guess the comics industry just di...

Re: Why are we all tarnished so....

I'm a admin on a general toy collecting toy group on FB. last night in our admin chat they all think all vintage starwars collectors are elitist arrogant above everyone else and are all twats. I thought this was very unfair why do we have such reputation. I've never took vintage starwars seriously ...

Re: Blaster ID

It takes the work Wolff (wbobafett on TIG) started on coo variations currently found on: https://swspaceclub.com/wbobafett/introduction-coos/ And looks to complete it. Plus it will be adding all the work currently being carrie...

Re: Blaster ID

Hi Michael. This is the v4 blaster off of TIG. It was made in the Smile factory and if you’re a nerdy geek like me can be paired with any figure produced by the Smile factory. In reality it can be paired with any of the Hong Kong coo Hammerhead and Walrus Man Cantina aliens as they were all made in...

Re: How do people display there loose in open space?

This box is really good that i picked up from eBay years ago but I'm sure you could still find it somewhere. It also came with some separate, removable steps so that you can stack your figures on display.

Re: #hanhoth #figurefocus

What a great run and congratulations on finishing the focus off, I can see it's no easy task given all the information you had to research. Like Cazza I remember getting this figure back in the 80's when it was first released and I was on holiday. The day we left for holiday my Boba Fett Mailer came...

Re: It's reseal time again!

Thank you guys. Just read some excellent past threads regarding reseals. Considering how expensive top end ROTJ moc's are these days i'm looking at resealing as an alternative. I've always found owning a reseal to be as good as a sealed moc (well nearly lol), so I think it's a great option. Best of...

Re: eBay VAT added

Was it from Europe or the UK? Europe, Ireland I get why I've been charged VAT, but its the way ebay added it on at the check out, really sneaky. Sorry to hear this and I mentioned this VAT charge in another thread recently but I thought it started the 20% extra in the listing. We were all thinking ...

Re: Wow - this is shocking.

I'm glad someone posted this up as I also watched it last night and found the whole thing really interesting. I must admit that I've found Michael to be a angry of late, which is a shame to see as he should just get back to enjoying toys and not get so worked up at times but I felt he really hit it ...
