Wave of nostalgia

Post by itfciain » Wed Sep 18, 2019 2:26 am

Logged on tonight as I had a couple of messages to answer - as I am scrolling through the pages it all came flooding back to me

I was a lurker for about 6 months and the decided to take the plunge - the welcome I got was great and the feedback on my then limelight (loose Last 17) was really positive.

I love this site - just about everyone I have ever spoken to on here has been helpful and I have made a tonne of friends over the years

No real point to this post (but then that is the same for pretty much the 18000 that Weasel has posted up)

Always great to see a post from a member that has been quiet for a while. Busy lives take over and circumstances change, but there is always a little oasis that is SWFUK that you can take out a little time from a hectic life and enjoy the posts and limelights/ new aquisistions and comraderie that is a central part of the forum.
As has been said Iain, you have helped so many members on here with getting their collection going, adding to collections and helping out.
Great to see you posting

I got massive nostalgia looking at your sales threads Iain.

It was brought up on the TVR podcast interview with a generation 1 toy seller the term ‘MOC’ and how much he didn’t like and wanted to know who come up with it.

That was you! I never ‘MOC’ until I met you and Jez.

I was resistant at first as it’s obviously ‘mint on card’. But 5 years of buying off you and going to FF, soon change ‘MOC’ into the most used word of this decade.

It's good to see you Iain, was looking at your stands last night as I've managed to gain all 6 bounty hunters loose now that I wanted to finish off and have been looking at your synergy stands. Get all my stands from you and they display my figures lovely :D

Hope all is good with the business :D

Got into collecting vintage thanks to Iain - found my old figs in 2015 and suddenly (and somewhat inexplicably!) felt the urge to get all the ones I never had as a kid! Cheers Iain, hope all is well 8)

I think that I joined just too late for the legendary sales posts of Lain, but I was lucky enough to get a baggie and a mailer from him.
Looking back at his sales posts makes you wish they were still happening.
