Re: Does Trade Bait Work?

Of late, trading is all I do to acquire new stuff. Prices are high so for me it's easier to trade comparably valuable things. I've let go of a few items I will never ( unlikely) be able to replace but swapped them for things I thought I'd never own...

Re: Luke Bespin & Jedi Sabers - Real or Fake?

Re: Net for C3PO removable limbs question

There are two 'main' C3PO RL variants, small vs big 'rivet', straight vs curved 1982, yellow vs brown base plastic. They have different nets, yours look the same as far as the size of the squares- that wasn't very helpful :lol:
