A nice MIM Ledy short mouthed Biker Scout and it even has the unique darker Ledy Pistol (shame it’s no longer taped to the side). Love the figure and the card Back art. Nice Condition on your...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

1st thing I’ve bought all year, been after a SW Death Squad Commander 20bk to replace the Star Destroyer Commander on a ROTJ card I sold last year, never liked that card. Nice pick up, I find this figure more interesting because of the change of name Death Squad Commander on SW card and Star Destro...

Re: How collecting changed and where to go to buy now ?

I don't collect loose so cannot comment on that but MOC (especially rare MOC) is predominantly sold privately. I occasionally see something on Ebay and Facebook but lately I am getting more stuff from Vectis. My biggest purchase since starting collecting again in 2017 has come from the Forum. I woul...

Re: Do all 12 Back Chewie's have a Green Bowcaster?

The green Bowcaster came with the first issue Chewbacca as far as I can remember. The more common ones are the Blue/Black so this one is definitely harder to get. Out of interest are there any SKU numbers on the footer from what you can see? I noticed a 12 back Palitoy Chewbacca with them on a whil...
