    Hey so I started collecting again recently enough , I've picked up a few bits off adverts and been 3d printing replacement wings /knee pads guns ..that kind of thing .

    I'd been collecting before from around 2000-2012 , and I sold off a lot of the collection I had (this was when my second child was born so I needed the cash, and figured my collecting days were over ) .Back then other than the odd trip to Birmingham for memorabilia fairs , I was buying from ebay , and most of the reasonably priced stuff was coming from the UK . Now though anything i look at has an import charge on top of a postage and packaging , so suddenly a 40 quid bundle of a few figures is now nearly double that . In Europe, most places I can buy from have much higher postage rates (obviously ) and its nearly cheaper to buy from the states at this rate...nearly

    Does anyone have any tips on where to buy ?
