Just popped in to see Toy Toni

Postby pizzathehutt » Sun Jul 29, 2018 3:57 pm

I was in Brighton yesterday and popped into snoopers paradise to see how the dodge pot Toni was getting on.

Zero carded figures now, funny how his handy work is no longer on display since it all came out.

£60 for a A-wing pilot which I thought wasn’t the worst until I saw repro weapon written in faint pen

A few other loose figures but nothing special please see pics

The other stall 83 I think is fantastic though!

So much cool stuff but it was busy so I didn’t get any pics

As soon as the scandal broke his made at home jobbies disappeared.
He still had a fair few genuine cards up until a few months ago... not sure why he's removed them now.

Stall 83 is owned by Tim aka Tickion on here...

I have been going in almost every week for a few years now, and I think he took them all out because people stopped buying them. Before they were selling quite regularly and he was re stocking almost every week, he would replace whatever sold with another one and put the price up £5-10 each time. But he got greedier with his prices and lazier with his selection until nobody wanted to buy anything. And now it looks like he's removed everything in a huff :lol:

I did notice his prices rising gradually... almost in line with FB, so did wonder if he had a spy or fake account on there.

He did have some nice MOCs to start with, but as you say, when he replaced them, the quality wasn't as good.. maybe his stocks are finally dwindling.

His biggest mistake was not selling them as proof cards. The guy could have retired by now with the amount he had. Imagine what he could have made with all those Boba Fett proof cards. I bet he kicks himself every night knowing it too.

they're not and never were proof cards. they were unused cardbacks.

A few unused cards made it into the collector market..

IIRC Lee Bullock had a Lando Skiff card a fair few years back.

I can still remember him having loose figures at Alfie’s antiques on those same cool little yellow stands he has

£25 for a loose anakin with nose rub seemed a lot to me

Brighton is mega hipster town now

Does anyone know what he did with the unused stock that did not get ironed ?

I think he knows full well that if he was found offloading the remaining stock of unused cards etc, it'd be pretty incriminating for him. I'd guess if he did/does get rid of it it'd be through a "trusted" contact of his. Maybe he's just going to take it to the grave, so to speak.

I'd certainly be interested in one or two of the unused cards. I think they hold huge collector value for exactly what they are. But then I guess back when he started his fraudulent activities maybe the money wasn't in new old stick cardbacks.

He’s probably buried them at sea going by his Flickr photos

Well, if they are binned /burried / washed at sea or anything like that it makes what he did even fucking worse.

Assuming they are in a box somewhere, The decent thing to do would be to cough up, Sell / give them away and then they go 1 by 1 on a charity auction.

That seems right / decent and I suspect would help him be less disliked.
