Re: 4-2-4 loose players

I'm keen to find out more about where they were made, because hand painting all of these figures is a major undertaking, even though the range of teams was very limited. I'll keep trying to find the fella and will let you know if I have any success. I've sold two lots of 50 on Ebay. Only another 700...

Re: 4-2-4 loose players

I don't think so, partly because there's a very limited range if teams to collect. I paid £20 for 7000 of these painted figures from a fella near Tunbridge Wells. He wasn't sure, but he thought they were made locally. Now 4-2-4 was based in Guernsey (tax reasons?) but I can't imagine there was a net...

Re: International Edition Table Rugby

Found two more sets, both made at Chiddingstone Causeway. The top team has polystyrene inner tray. All the rest are card.

International Edition Table Rugby

Looking through a few a Rugby sets I have, I noticed the "New" International Edition has a Langton Green address, but others without the "New" show Tunbridge Wells.

Wonder whether the Rugby sets made it out of a Kent?

Re: 4-2-4 loose players

Have counted some of them, then weighed the big bags to come to a total of 7,138 loose players!

Fella in Kent replied to my Subbuteo ad and only wanted 20 quid including postage for the loose players, 2 boxed teams & 3 goals.
Arsenal
Leeds United
Rangers
Yellow Goalkeepers (no base/handle)

Must be 2 or 3 thousand?

Subbuteo-themed music

Was on Amazon buying a book, when I found the following two music tracks with a Subbuteo theme:- - "The Subbuteo Lads" by Luke Haines. From the "I sometimes dream of glue" album 2018 - "Subbuteo" by The Black Museum. From the "The Black Museum" album, 2017? Haven't listed to either track, yet. Chris

Seville FC

On holiday in Spain and walked into the club shop on Friday in Seville.
There was a modern set on a table display with Perspex lid and sets for Sale stacked underneath.
Flick to kick going strong in Seville!

Re: Stadium Edition Boxset

Courier costs are much more reasonable for bulky items / heavier than 2kg, compared to Royal Mail. I think I used "Parcel Pete" last time, who get UPS to do the donkey work for them. The websites give you a cost based on dimensions and weight ( and destination, of course) For a 5kg parcel to Italy, ...

Re: How long do you give someone to pay before relisting?

Might be an idea to send the parcel recorded delivery, just in case he claims for non-delivery. He has a history of not paying / not communicating with the seller, so he would be a higher risk for claiming parcel never arrived. Chris

Re: Shipping from America

Bought some job lots from an American seller a year or two ago who'd got some old shop stock of UK made Subbuteo from 70s.
Main issue was having to pay 20% VAT to UK Customs before they allow items to be forwarded to you.
I guess same applies for anywhere outside EU.
