Beyond me, break it out I say!


Why pay to have anything graded? The inconsistency between the same grades is proven beyond doubt and yet grade chasers exist. But yes, grading takes on a new level of lunacy with (great!) pieces like this.

Nothing rare for me but Matt Fox did a super deal on these two stunning condition Palitoy Jedi cards. This is about the 4th Boushh I’ve had but the first one in truly lovely condition. I’ve always wanted a nice long bubble Chewie but never found one I was certain wasn’t a TT. These are part of a bigger find that are loft fresh having been bought off the shelf BITD, so I know, categorically; this is a non-TT Chewie.

Cheers Matt :)

Great pair of Jedi MOCs, and as they are Palitoy nice clear bubbles.
I don’t collect Jedi MOCs but Leia is really nice, Matt has sold some stunning MOCs on FB this week.
I only missed out on a Luke Jedi Tri Logo by minutes myself.

Grading is now beyond me, but when I got back into the hobby I was not confident to decide what was original and what wasn’t, so did have a few loose bits graded.
My advice would now be to educate yourself in what’s what, before thinking of grading, it’s more fun and involving.
Remember grading is only an opinion at that moment in time...and as humans we are all infallible... :?

Wanted to post this one as I reckon it was a good score, and those have been few and far between for me lately...

Euro 3.50 (!) off eBay from a seller in the Canary Islands, of all places. Missing one of the boulders, but I happen to have a spare that came with another Ewok thing so in my hands, it's complete.

Cheers,

Great score on the glider, cheaper than when they first came out. Nice MOCs as well.

Just added this rather lovely Radar Laser Cannon to my collection. It’s still sealed on the top.

Very nice! I'm pretty sure all Ewok Gliders sold in the UK had that sticker slapped on the box somewhere. :)

Loving that Chewie Si - a beauty, and some serious mini-rig love going on. Like buses.

After a bit of a hiatus, here's my second die cast in a week. A Sears Landspeeder mailer, I've not seen many of these boxes with most seemingly J C Penney.

Great pick ups!

Nice Jedi MOCs, Si. Cracking Chewie and the Palitoy Leia Boussh is one of my fav ROTJ MOCs.

Absolute bargain, Dallas! :shock:

Good score on the shipper, Alisdair.

VERY nice Radar Canon, Si! 8)

Andy, well done on getting hold of that Landspeeded mailer- very nice indeed!

That's nice. I've not been into sealed items much up to now but recently whenever I see a sealed mini rig I feel very tempted to look for one.
