Just looked on Smyths website and they have dropped Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer from £39.99 to £24.99.....Thats a great price considering that TRU are charging £59.99 for the same item.. Remember though if you don't have a Smyths local to you but you do have a TRU near you,get them to price match Smyths...

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

Managed to source Galen Erso off Ebay for a good price.I give up hope of ever finding one on the stores...StarAction Figures had it on a pre-order a few weeks back but I missed that chance and know they've sold out of their pre-order and Wayne at SAF said they most likely won't get any more in...

Been to TRU in Leeds again this morning to buy this .....(I'm addicted...help :oops: :lol: )...

Re: What are Your Favourite & Least Favourite Vintage Weapons / Accessories?

Yes there was a snake in Yoda's house in ESB...not around his neck though...it was on a plate if I remember rightly and Luke moved it when he needed the ...
