Re: Ref 270 variant?????

Wouldn't describe it as a "variant" - just a piece of shoddy work by an outworker.

Given my style of collecting, I'd likely keep it for the sheer 'quirky' value.

Re: "Mint Condition" - Corse It Is!

Crazy bit of rebasing going on with all of these - plus many other issues.
He must be working to severe time constraints ... .

Re: Subbuteo "treasure trove found" in attic....

With 17 managers since relegation from the Premier League ... ... and anything from 7th to 17th looking like our anchor point in the Championship each year ... ... now with Orta in charge of recruitment ... ... and without the ability to even come up with a decent design for a new club crest ... ......

Re: Welcome to the Forum

Now then, where did I put that miniscule F.A.Cup; you know, the one from the mid-70's VIP presentation set. :-k Aye, all the best to ye in locating that! I've come across a few of the boxes – and have many of the figures – but the miniature cups are another thing altogether! How many of these found...

Re: Two more for the collection

All teams have variations .. base combos, flesh or white plastic figures, variations to painting, box types ...even the size of the subbuteo lettering on the inners........I have up to a dozen or more of some team refs..all slightly di...

Re: Two more for the collection

Superb!
I've always liked the HW117 kit and while I much prefer the HP LWs to the machine paints, I have to draw the line at collecting somewhere which means I've never allowed myself to do down the LW route.

Re: Rogue or Friend?

He's been repainting and rebasing for years.
The astonishing thing is he has never improved his performance over the years: tat, that all these years later, still looks like tat.

Re: Hi All

Good to have you back on board.
It seems this Subbuteo bug is one that rarely dies ...
Happy collecting again!

Re: LIGHTWEIGHT REFERENCE BOOK

Looks like an excellent publication!
If a HW version was ever to become available (and I appreciate the difficulties with this as outlined above), I would prefer a photo of a full team rather than of one single player. Otherwise it has the look of a 'spares catalogue.'

Re: Most Chilled Buyer

We all wish we could sell to buyers like you, Vikash!
Unfortunately the usual response is, "Have you sent it yet?" - i.e. "Why hasn't it arrived with me immediately after payment?"
