    Why are we all tarnished so....

    Its a common feeling among other people for one reason and one reason only - The absolute terrible attitude some people on forums show towards people that are new , come asking advice , or ask a question that may have been asked a hundred times or more - but this is the first time THEY are...

    Storage advice please ?

    STORAGE ADVICE PLEASE ? Been looking for these Lyons Maid wrappers for years. Now that I finally scored 2 I want to preserve them as best as possible and was wondering about the best storage solution. These are very thin paper, and the print is very likely to fade and to transfer, especially if...

    Whats your opinion of this ?

    I'm rabidly anti-repro, and the only piece in my collection that is such is the sabre for my pop up r2 - which is a place warmer for when I find a real one, and was only bought because it was the one figure that BUGGED me every time I looked at it. Now then, I stumbled over this on ebay, and...

    It is interesting, and frustrating :? I have NEVER been able to get a photograph to upload to the site without problems. No matter what I try, when it uploads it comes over so big that it wont go on screen and you end up scrolling up , down, left, right just to see it. Tried everything I can...
