And, for people like me who want to re-experie
Needless to say, I am happy there is a toy store for those of us who maintain our inner child, and remain children at heart.
"One of these things is not like the other" haha
I'd like to humbly ask for some help from friends and supporters of the toy store. Our Google listing got hamme...red by 2 disgruntled customers over the past 3 months. If you have seen the 5 star reviews we have on our Facebook page and eBay account you will see what we are used to providing.
So if any of you have a Google account or wish to create one just to help give us a better rating with some feedback I'd be very grateful.
This business is supposed to be fun and noticing this Google problem hasn't made it so this week.
* if you haven't left us a review on Facebook I'd appreciate that as well.
Poor Ken. Poor Barbie!! Poor children of the Barbie world. Just no!! 😑
Check out the new Ken doll from Mattel, now with more Man Bun!
Did you know original Kenner lightsaber accessories will glow under a black light. There are a few exceptions but this is another test you can use along with "float test" (most original Kenner accessories will float in a cup of water)
It was the end of the 1970's after all. Black lights were all the rage. Maybe Kenner planned a glow effect with the black light. Maybe the plastic used just happens to glow under a black light but this is another test to use to spot a fake or "...RepRo" accessory. It's also fun to try out on your original figures.
*** there are some Ben Kenobi lightsabers that are real and do not glow. The telescoping sabers also do not glow. So this test is not helpful in spotting RepRo ones there.
If you want 100% real accessories, it's worth gaining some knowledge on how to know what is and what isn't. Some collectors are ok with RepRo accessories in their collection and that's ok. Please make sure to note or label them as such for future generations of collectors.
I think I'm going to stage an epic black light final duel in my basement this summer with this newly acquired knowledge! Hahahaha
* this information was obtained from a Facebook Star Wars collectors group and the photos were "borrowed" from there. They are not RepRo photos so it's all good! Haha. Thank you to everyone in that group for sharing this info.
How about a little throwback Thursday. A walk about in our very first location.
Do not go to this address! We are no longer located there but it is kinda fun to see where this started again.
