If I had to pick a "coolest thing ever" this might be it. Police Call Box sign off one of the screen used TARDIS' from the Matt Smith era of Dr. Who. Even got a few fake GBP's from the Runaway Bride Episode.

I'm speechless about this!

got a nice ledy bib fortuna minus the breastplate for cheap with ledy staff and cloak , pretty excited for him as the pbp focus has slowed to a snails pace .... im always excited to add a new ledy to the collection and prices for bib have been around 100 on ebay so 32 was a steal ...

That's a really unique piece, John. Really nice!

Bill - Great steal on that Ledy. I'm sure you'll find the missing piece. What's the PBP count now?

Amazing, amazing, amazing stuff, Stef!

POCH and PBP figures are in my focus again, since Javi's book came out.

Creme-de-la-creme pics.... LOOK at those three together ... Snowtroop, DISCO Stu the DSC & Toltoy goodies.


Also love that Toymaster catalogue - think Mum & Dad brought a similar one home one time in '84 or early '85, Staffordshire store, maybe Hanley, Stoke or Longton. I'm too old now to remember!

Thanks for sharing. cheers

Great pick up guys!

Love that grey limb Snowtrooper and I'm starting to dig paperwork!

Got this in, but it's not a complete one....yet. Someone pulled out the Biker Scout and put in a Tusken Raider. So I need to fix it, but still I love a 4 Pack!

For a myriad of reasons, I can't say much about the who/how/where.

Funny thing, the were a couple of 4 sides TARDIS' for exterior shots. This was from a 2 sides TARDIS that was used when the TARDIS was inside a room, against a well, etc!

I understand -- thanks for sharing, though, I am completely jealous ! Matt Smith is my favorite of the "new" Doctors and to have a prop piece from his era of the show, and a piece of the TARDIS no less, is an amazing acquisition. Congratulations!

What were you doing Palitoy??

So having recently uncovered a 4th variant on the Palitoy ESB AT-AT Instruction leaflet I though it best to share it with you all....



1 - (Early Error Notice) - Rev.1
2 - (Common Error Notice) - Rev.2
3 - (Old P/N L1020 - New Battery/Bulb Codes) - Rev.3
4 - (New P/N L1147 - New Battery/Bulb Codes)



Most likely over-sight by Palitoy and duplicated from the original Kenner artwork the first versions of the AT-AT instruction leaflets part number L1020 contained a printing error and state the US battery & bulb codes which were not available in the UK. There now appears to be two versions of the stapled on battery/bulb error notice.

Left - (Early Error Notice) - Rev.1 - (Discovered 25/01/16).  What I have classed as the early version features a typeface similar to that of a type-writer, most likely a rushed though intrim change to allow Palitoy to ship product from of the factory.

Right - (Common Error Notice) - Rev.2 - The later more common version of the stapled on battery/bulb error notice, although still only text it has now proper artwork produced for it.



Left - (Old P/N L1020 - New Battery/Bulb Codes) - Rev.3 - (Discovered 12/11/2016). It would appear that in all the haste of updating the battery and bulb codes Palitoy failed to update the instruction leaflet part number. So here we have the original L1020 leaflet with the new battery & bulbs codes.

Right - (New P/N L1147 - New Battery/Bulb Codes), finally someone at Palitoy got the docuemnt right!!

Some cool pickups in here. What's the story on these gray limbed snowtrooper? I remember reading some threads a long while back where it was thought possible discoloration or remolded arms and legs from the guy who dropped the toy Toni bomb, but I don't think I ever read anything definitive. Are these transformants or what?
