    A couple of modest pickups yesterday. Never had General Lando as a kid. I promised myself that I wouldnt try chasing down the Last 17 that I dont have amongst my childhood collection because of the prices of some of them. Incomplete Lando was a fair price, however. Stormtrooper is whiter than my...

    End Of An Era - Toy Toni's Snoopers Paradise Cabinet

    I'm intrigued by that cabinet full of camera gear, the Pentax item in particular. What happened to that Palitoy Hammerhead? One of his attempts gone wrong?

    Had been thinking about getting an Admiral Ackbar for a while but the ones i found have either a yellow bubble or damaged card. Found this one in a sealed in a plastic bag from the shop. Great card and clear bubble. Just a small dent at the top of the bubble which i can live with.

    I’ve just located my 60+ childhood cardbacks!

    Great story. So good to see. I've got mine, some with a price label on them so it serves as a memory where they came from. The majority of mine came from Zodiac, Wooworths, Co-Op. A few have Asda and Menzie's labels on them and a few have an unbranded yellow or orange label. Not sure where...

    James Martin / Waltham Wookiee

    RIP. Just saw this on instagram. I never knew him personally, only through being on here, and I think he had a stall at a couple of Echo Lives.

    Forthcoming Vintage Collecting Books

    Their website is here: https://www.readfive.co.uk/our-book?fbclid=IwAR2Y9jZo3NUlkFVMyWSw1qjotvZOZ0OqTTXBJhzpW8hq1wzLotQoYSaSFDM Looks very promising. I'll be in for that. I seem to remember the kickstarter campaign was put on hold due to the corona.

    Star Case Koenji Tokyo- PIC HEAVY!

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=72s&v=p7cm-F_uc7s&fbclid=IwAR0kf9Ft5TF3Z3JnLqfwQp7pzWWbmtY0hYhUM5XIG1ujDqHf1NHkXvVRxf4 I don't know exactly who did this, but it has been filmed and put up on Star Cases youtube channel. Really disappointing they've done this. Quite shocked actually. Lost my respect.

    What got you back into collecting?

    A few years ago a friend of mine was considering selling his childhood collection off. He, naturally, started off by posting here in the valuation thread, which how I became a member later. Anyway, long story, short... I ended up buying his Hoth Base and complete Bossk from him. I got my...

    Warning new repro that is not in the tig guide

    Yes, mate. I dont know who the top blokes are for this type of thing, but when I met Dan at Echo a while ago he was compiling a record of repro crap. His name gets brought up a lot.

    Warning new repro that is not in the tig guide

    There is a lad on facebook, dont know if he posts here, but he is a Topps artist and prominent at Echo Live and on the Facebook groups. He was identifying repros, but dont know if he still is. Some of you know who i am on about, but wont print his name. All around nice bloke.

    Dose anyone remember a vintage figure shop in Coventry?

    I remember Barnaby's or Barnby's. The price tag was on the box of one of my Cherilea Action Man boxes before I sold it. We lived in Rugby and my mum would take me to Cov sometimes. I remember mum buying me the Batman with magnets on his hands and feet.

    Star Wars to Action Force

    It is hard to remember exactly. I think i may have been something like this: Very early days of Matchbox and Corgi and then Mego superhero figures, and Action Man. And the small plastic soldiers. Star Wars. Action Force MOTU Transformers and MUSCLE I got into NFL in 1986 and that was pretty...
