I have had several great trades on the fwoosh, and even made a couple of freinds here in manchester, who thought they were lonesome action figure geeks!!!!
However, I agree with the post above, not only does it take a long time and several pm requests to actually join the trade board, but your trade thread is buried and any threads you might be interested in are soon swallowed up too!
Another thing is the actual trades themselves: for the most part, they will be :
Have: Current wave of XXX, previous wave of xxxx...Wants: Variants which have either never been released or are released next year!!!!
Some very nice people on there, as there are here, and you will find some familiar names on there too!
