The episodes I've seen so far have taken a more serious approach toward collectors and collecting, rather than ridiculing them.

Cool... I don't like seeing serious collectors being portrayed as hoarders.

If I forget, can you bump this once it airs so I can find it on my usual sites?

cheers!
Very Happy

LOL if a collector has 30 thousand items  Rolling Eyes  its a very fine line between being a collector and a hoarder, id be going with the latter  Laughing

Alex, your going to have to tattle on me. lol!  I just finished watching it on line. What I would have liked to know, is what was in the remainder of James collection and where it went.

Alex, if you want to trade me your Bespin Luke collection, I'm sure I could find some of my sisters old porcelain dolls to trade and you can start a new collection. lol! rofl rofl

Clint! it's over mate, I've just phoned the pigs!  :cool laugh: 
 
I was gutted, it was all boring modern stuff! I saw a Wicket a Paploo, loads of vintage figures that looked like they had painted wooden shards as lightsabers and a carded Palitoy C-3PO that was clearly a dodgy reseal unless I missed the 'painted belly' version!
 
Anyway I hope this has kept you distracted! ....... what's that at the door Clint?

That episode was certainly disappointing. I hoped that there would be some quality vintage. Oh Well!

Was a bit of a shame Steve, I totally disagree with the valuation that was given as well, may be close to what he's spent but not what it's worth, all the modern stuff is basically worthless, the prices have been steadily dropping since day one. Even the exclusive used to hit the stores at daft prices, but give a year and you could pick them up for peanuts. I think most of his money was in Lego by the look of it, that only seems to rise in price. I would love to have a pop at doing that Lego Super Star Destroyer, it's huge!

All in all a big disappointment imo. A few boxes on beater vintage figures, a custom palitoy C-3PO and loads on modern stuff. I had to watch an old episode of toy hunter to bring my vinti-chlorian levels back up. Sad

I agree Alex. And yes, Lego certainly keeps rising in value. I had a large collection, but due to lack of space I stopped buying it & started to sell it off for very good profits. I still have a few of the larger sets misb (which are awkward to post) including the Star Destroyer. I may build them & sell them off loose.
