Re: Who's Who - Introduce yourself!

Thanks for the welcome guys! Max, of course I remember you, hope you're well and the collection growing nicely? The early 2000s was a great time for collecting, with the Rebelscum forums and Memorabilia shows, when everything was that much more affordable! I haven't stopped in the meantime, just had...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 33 LAUNCHED

I've also got a few bootleg ceramics. Here's the Chewie and Vader (two variants, the one in the middle is a little shorter and has a white sabre) money boxes that Grant was talking about in the interview with Amy. These are the ones that appear to be modelled on the HCF pencil tops, which themselves...

I particularly like the Zuckuss as it's one of the only ways to get this figure on a 'Palitoy' ESB cardback.

WTB carded Palitoy ESB Leia Hoth, reseal, cut bubble or beater OK

Hi, I'm looking for Leia Hoth on Palitoy 30 back preferably but otherwise any Palitoy ESB card. Mint sealed MOC is out of my budget, so I'm interested in creased cards, dented bubbles, cut bubbles or reseals, so long as all the parts are original. I'm happy to pay cash, or for trades I can offer a f...

Re: UK Auction houses name and shame..

Some auction houses don't really care much, I've seen blatant recarded figures up for sale a few years ago and when I've pointed this out they didn't want to know (not Vectis by the way). Buyer beware and always inspect in person.

I have been a Star Wars fan since seeing the first movie in 78, a collector as a kid, and collecting again seriously since about 95. I've got pretty m...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Pick up a bunch of loose figures and a mini rig this morning at a local toy fair and also picked up this oddball item: IMG_0976.JPG Not too sure of date/age, certainly vintage. Slight split in the pack but essentially sealed. Deeko released a range of party products in the U.K. in 1978, including t...
