Re: Latest Acquisitions

Mark, that's a stunning discovery - great to see that these finds are still out there! Congratulations mate. This is my favourite find for a while, a bootleg Space Battle Target Game with obvious Star Wars influences. The box was really battered when I got it and I've had to do some restoration, but...

Re: Generation Skywalker

Listened to the introductory episode today, great to hear you all on the airwaves again.

I like the sound of the new venture, something a bit different to whats out there at present. Best of luck with it and I'm looking forward to listening!

That's a shame, Andy. I don't suppose you had an early bird pass did you? Nick Shear is after one.
Thanks, I have been in touch with Nick and he's decided not to go this time. I don't think the passes are transferable in any case.

Cheers, Andy

Damn! Just realised my holiday overlaps with Echo Live so I'm going to have to miss this one.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2020 - THE FINAL

Cheers Stu, that was a lot of fun. I’m a bit gutted that the little green guy didn’t make it, but we have a worthy winner nonetheless. Bit like Leicester winning the Premier, I don’t think any of us saw that coming!

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I’m so pleased to be able to post this pic, I’ve been putting this set together for several years and I’m delighted to get the final one, Logray, in the post today. Thank you @s1d0w for the trade!

Yoda for me, one of my favourites as a kid, and still is. Maybe a certain TV show has also influenced his popularity this year?

Imperial Attack Base for me. I loved playing with my mate’s, such a great set with fantastic action features, but I never got one as a kid.

Re: Palitoy solid belly taun taun question

You're right, the belly strap is a lot narrower on the solid belly version.

I've never seen an instruction sheet for the solid belly either - I doubt there was one.

Cheers,

Re: The Vintage Rebellion Episode 68 Launched

Thanks for your comments, you're absolutely right and I'm always happy to be corrected. But, my research was based on Jason's site - so I'm blaming him! :D
