    British pronunciation 😁

    Not only do I recall them that way, I still say them that way - only one I've adopted is lay-ah. I don't really mix in real-world Star Wars fandom which is why I still get away with it!

    Collecting now

    The first thing I'd say is by providing your email address you're leaving yourself open to people making private offers... which could be less than your items are worth. I'd recommend not accepting any offers that way for now. What you can do is post on the 'Vintage valuation request'...

    I really haven't bought much over the past few years, mainly because of moving house and rising prices. There are items I'd still like to buy but they're going for (IMO) silly money - Palitoy Death Star, 12" Fett, ESB R2 solid dome MOC. Heck, even the Vader's Star Destroyer playset seems to go...

    Good call, doesn't have to be a Chewie card then. I'll keep an eye out!

    Like some others I haven't really bought much in the past 12 months, but I did snag this earlier in the year. It came from the US and has been at my brother's for about 6 months before I had him send it over. It is/was a 21c but the sticker on the front's been removed, leaving a lot of damage in...

    Palitoy 'Land of the Jawas'

    Palitoy 'Land of the Jawas'

    So this auction here offers the Pali LotJ set: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124933333675?hash=item1d169b62ab:g:ZaQAAOSwiL1hWw8U ...but all the cardboard parts are 'Replicator' crap, so you're effectively paying £400 for the base and two figure stands!! Yeah, good luck with that.

    A HUGE thanks to Blackbeard - re baggie guide(s)

    Great work Blackbeard. It's clear you're putting a lot of time and effort into the forum and when that delivers in ways like this it's fantastic and very much appreciated. Frank... I didn't realise the AFA used your guide but it makes perfect sense. It's great it to see it take such a big leap...

    ABBA!

    I always associate 'Super Trouper' with a hoth stormtrooper. I remember the song playing whilst we were in my dad's car and I had the hoth stormie with me.

    Luke Stormtrooper helmet

    Is the one of the early 90s lead reproductions?

    YPS Snowtrooper rifle

    Yep, I'm with you there. I just don't see the appeal of the whole YPS Snowtrooper thing anyway.

    Nice DSC MOC. It might not be one of the best looking cardbacks but there's something about it that's hugely nostalgic for me too.

    Those Death Star instructions and that tri-pod laser cannon... I just don't know what to say.

    There's a guy on fb selling a loose Anakin for £30 + postage. Someone offers him £35 all-in, so the guy counters with £40 and he'll pay for 1st class signed. And the guy says he'll buy it! That's first class signed at just under a fiver. So it's advertised at £30 and someone pays £35 for it...

    Sad news. Those books are phenomenal.

    Collecting

    I seem to be able to sell on things I'm not interested in - doubles, stuff bought as part of lots, etc... It's the 'completist' mentality that's my downfall. There are a couple of bands whose memorabilia/records I collect, and I find myself buying stuff that just gets put away knowing I won't...

    I don't have any of my childhood SW, Transformers or Action Man - they were sold in the 80s. I do have most of my lego and various other bits and pieces of stuff. For example, I still have my childhood 'Lego Car Chassis' (8860) which is boxed and complete... but I just can't bring myself to sell...
