I'm restoring some items in my collection and looking for some repro pieces like X wing canopy and X wing cannons. Who does the best work?
Will do. Around Christmas time, they had some really nice discounts.I have purchased a few parts from them with no regrets. Sometimes you can call the store and ask if he would give a package deal.. usually will take off 10 percent . Make sure to ask for the owner.
Thanks you guys! Although I’ve been on these boards forever, I basically lurked the vintage forums. Now with such a lag in modern SW, I decided to unearth my vintage vehicles, hence the restoration projects. You all have convinced me to steer clear of repros. All of my figures, weapons and vehicles are legit. I have a couple of repro backgrounds but plan to eventually replace them as well. Thanks guys. I’m still looking for pieces and had planned on flying back to hometown, Chicago, to go to the Kane County show. It’s been several years. I now live in Houston and if this pandemic subsides, I have found a couple of shows that deal in antique toys as well. But, if anyone has old pieces and parts they are willing to part with, I may be interested. PM me if you want I help out a fellow scummer and I’ll send you my needs list. Thanks!I don't know who produces the best, but I would highly recommend only buying parts that are stamped "reproduction." I remember a discussion here some 20 years ago, in which we tried to envisage the impact of high-end repros being in the market. The general consensus was, avoid them unless stamped. Reason being, someone further down the line might try to pass them off as gen.
I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had had a similar experience to what I had several weeks ago. I purchased a toy from their website and was emailed a couple of days later to say they could not find it and had given me a full refund, but would contact me and offer it to me at a discounted rate should they manage to locate it. They did refund me in full (although I did miss out on a few dollars due to the currency conversion via PayPal). I found the explanation to be perfectly fine as these things can happen. However about a week later the exact same item was back up on their website and still is as I type this message - same photo showing same item in same condition. I tried contacting them by two different means to inquire whether they actually located it and heard nothing back. They are still actively promoting their store on Facebook at the moment and adding new stock so I find it all really unusual as to why they never made the effort to reply to me.Wow...I'm totally surprised at the positive response to Dallas Vintage Toys in this thread. IMHO, Shaun Neinast is one of the biggest scammers in the industry - and not just talking about in the old crimes of substituting reproductions for real items, for which he was found guilty time and time again
Just 'one of the hundreds' of complaints against Shaun (the owner) of Dallas Vintage Toys (aka One-To-Five Day Auctions, Decadetoys, etc)
Just search the 'Watch Out' section if you want more.
My own personal stories of getting ripped off by this guy are there someplace. Again, not related to repros...
Edit: Searched eBay - plenty of guns for $10 and less, rather than dealing with this particular scumbag.
