I did not use the word 'Pleb', I think i'm being fitted up here. If you look at my post you will see it has been tampered with.

Someone is going to pay for this, now just open that f ing gate Joe Fo!

thank for the welcome.

well the last time i was on RS i was banned :-)

i will tell you another story if you want to here it :-)

the Kurtz\Joiner Archive printed a trooper limited print , as as such we used a image that Gary took back in 1976 on the set it was unpublished and had never been seen before , we own this image along with around 55.000 other unpunished images , well we are with our right to go to print and to retail this as we own it , Ben at Official Picks was a little unhappy that we printed this , and then found a print and put out that what we had was not unreleased and that they was also going to print the image , a bit of a pissing competition really anyway when i looked at the image it was taken the slid before mine , my slid had on in i think May 76 12 he had the image before number 11 a tiny bit different , so i pointed that out and also pointed out that the image that he was using was also Garys image , i think it went back to LFL and it was all fine and it was agreed we had the rights to us the image and to publish, the next day the tread was wiped and i was banned and i was informed it was not aloud to promote none LFL product on the RS forums and as such i was also banned :-)

so all the other unofficial sites promoted that we have this really cool print signed by 18 i think and where fans could by it from

and no before anyone says anything its not bootleg we own the rights Gary kurtz was vice president of LFL till 1981 and he has right over the things he produces and as the photographer he owns the rights to all his images on the films he was involved with.

so there you go another story

funny i feel i should be sitting in bar telling these ones :-)

It would be interesting (to me at least) if you did a list of key dates and key finds of SW goodies.

Like the 25,000 german card haul or the Palitoy factory sell off etc

I always wondered where all the carded stuff came from. I'm sure a few people bought things and didn't open them as kids/adults, but there seems to be shed loads of carded and boxed stuff around.

The only scenario I remember like that was when my friend picked up loads of boxed mini rigs and carded figures on the cheap. Toy shops across the midlands were getting rid of stuff when SW was less popular.

The only thing I managed to pick up was a shipping case full of Politoy Vinyl Caped Jawas, i suppose i should really get them out of my mum's attic. Oh shit, she has moved house.................

thank you for the kind words , its ok i expected a tuff few days but as i have said i really do not have anything to hide so its not stressful or anything like that its just a little odd as i remember things quite well even thought it was a long time ago , but that history back then seems to not have been kept , its very interesting , dose anyone know about the Kenner/Tonka sale in colvile lester in the 1990s ? has anyone recorded this stuff or has talked about this ? dose anyone even know of Geoff's Toys ? or the 25,000 German card back figure hall from 1989 ? are these things anyone on here knows about ? i thought someone would know of that stuff ? do let me know ? if not wow i must be old :-( ok everyone i am 43 saw star wars in 1977 as Gary Kurtz told me i was his target audience, i told him back this is all his fault, he smiled :-) , anyway one last thing and do not shout at me whats "U grading" sorry i am new here :-\[/quote]

so we tried to keep as many carded figures in good shape and look after them for decades fro these twats to open them up and say they are mint opened figures WOW

i am sorry i am lost for words , your world it just not right , sorry thats sacrilege i just never even thought of people doing that lazy twats they should have gone out and hunted down minty mint figures that are loos if they wanted to do that , sorry its just crazy

no one on here dose that do they ?

wow going off to think about that one , thats just very sad.

you know that these stuff was not made to last , you guys are trying all your best to keep these stuff in good shape but you know what there is now shore way to guarantee they will last over time .

papers degrades glue soffens bubles weeken and go brown , there is not shorue way that in 50 years time any of them will still be carded.



i am a historian and we restore all sorts of things to help presver them , latex monster heads are the worst , we own bossk yoda snaggle tooth and more and they are so fragile and we try to look after them but they are old and they were never made to last just do the job on the film set and then be chuched away , but be warned figures may not last and maybe some countries figers may last better than others dew to climet ? so in the end they could all be rare so as many of them that are looked after the better , but opening them to get a mint figure that just not right

wow

I'd nominate this for thread of the year but it started in 2012. (And there's no such thing as thread of the year)
