Re: Latest Acquisitions

I’m really pleased with this new arrival - a shipping box for the British Deeko 9 inch party plates. A great addition to my Deeko run. A real survivor - can’t be many of these around!

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nice one Adam! A very hard set to complete.

I think that’s the first I’ve seen with a Trilogo Wicket, rather than the Kenner card.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Some great items on here lately!

I’ve received this store display poster today, it’s been on my wish list for ages and I’m delighted to have it in hand. Jabba the Hutt Peach Melba anyone?

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Wow Grant, love the cast & crew Yoda stickers! Here’s a couple of bits I’ve picked up recently - carded Palitoy die-cast Darth Vader TIE Fighter (battered card but still sealed), Palitoy mailer box PDT-8, and a Waddingtons catalogue featuring the Jedi jigsaws. C6C6C3E8-C4E4-41E5-A1DC-356C5D84475...

Re: Childhood Toy shop

GW Hurley is still going strong in Burnham, I’ve been in numerous times with my kids buying toys. The places I recall buying Star Wars are a small department store in Teignmouth (South Devon) where we were living, Tesco in Newton Abbot, and Exeter Pram & Toy Shop. I’d love to find anything with ...

Re: Starfire UK Ltd flashing eyes badge RotJ

I’d say £30 to £40 in that condition - but they don’t come up often and someone who really wants it may be prepared to pay more.

Cheers, Andy

I’ve just received this Airfix promotional store display poster for the Star Wars competition, shown here with the accompanying comic advert, and the flyer (front and back both shown) that would have been given out in toy shops. It’s a rare British display item and I’m really pleased to have it in m...

Re: What are the 5 favourite items in your collection?

Great idea for a thread! So difficult to choose 5, but these are some personal highlights. In no particular order... Palitoy Death Star. I just loved this as a kid, and it's still my favourite item in the action figure line. 2019-08-26 15.38.25.jpg Topps UK trading card boxes. I collected these card...
