Thanks Jeremy, I probably will try again but they do take up a lot of space and the nostalgia isn't quite there for me

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Some lovely items as ever over the last few pages. Loving all the diecast and congrats Scott on Death Star World - does that just leave Hoth World? Really like Andy C’s haul, it wasn’t that long ago that only a couple of the Han Hoth 45bs were publicly known. Must have seen 10 in the last couple of...
