Re: My vintage Star Wars collection values to sell

I base it on not wanting to pay those prices either ... and 9 times out of 10 getting out bid as a result. :D Maybe Nikto is a bit high, possibly £18 on average, just spent too long last night trying to locate one and not wanting to pay too much for a boring Skiff guard. To put it in context the Luk...

Re: Creation thoughts?

Colours look good, I like that they are translucent too, much better than solid colours.

Re: My vintage Star Wars collection values to sell

Assuming all the weapons and accessories are original, good condition, minimal paint loss, stiff limbs and assuming no rare COO's or variations. From left to Right, top to bottom Row 1: 18,35,15,5,15,13 = £95 Row 2: 22,22,18,20,15 = £97 DSD looks to have shoulder paint loss Row 3: 20,40,50,60,40 = £...

Re: GW Acrylic - New Products available NOW!

As there hasn't been any recent updates on this thread, I thought it worth mentioning I received a case from GW Acrylic for a carded Power Droid this morning. I was really impressed with the quality, speed of delivery and especially the smart, double boxed, bomb proof packaging. All round I was real...

Re: Hoth Stormtrooper - Repro Cape Check

Thanks for the feedback, I'm not 100% either way but tend to agree it doesn't look right. I want to buy a few more in time to kit out the ATAT so I'll hang on to it for now. I just contacted the seller and he was sound, took immediate responsibility and offered a really good partial refund, so happi...

Hoth Stormtrooper - Repro Cape Check

Since I started collecting again, this is the first accessory that's left me unsure as to its authenticity. Looking at TIG https://www.imperialgunnery.com/vinylcapesskirts.htm its pretty insistent on a cross hatch on one side and a rough texture on the other. In the pictures the one side is rough bu...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Been collecting again for about a month now and thought it worth showing where I'm at. I already owned all the MOC's apart from B Wing Pilot and the rather lovely Power Droid I received today off Scott (Clarkspie&chips), so they're both new. All the rest are new additions, including the AT AT's ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

A few new additions picked up over the last few months - apologies for the poor pictures - beautifully enhanced by some GW Acrylic.

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Thanks, yeah I was on a works conference call and it was several days late so when it turned up I had to open it there and then while pretending to listen. Need a few hoth loosies to complete it I think. Anyone know how to get hold of the vintage grapple hook for Luke to hang off it? Did it come wit...
