Re: New collector, first event - Farthest From?

Farthest From is great, definitely worth going to, but I'd also recommend Echo Live which takes place twice a year in the shopping centre in Redditch - the next one's on May 4th. There's a superb range of vintage available there.

Re: Darth Vader tour photos wanted

This is a great collection of momentos I have a signed autograph much like the one shown earlier but no photo of me with Vader unfortunately. I assume David Prowse didnt do any of the events and it was just whatever big guy they could find that wore the suit? Or did David do some of them? I also wr...

Re: Loft Find updated February 3, 2019

Wow, great finds keep coming! I love the Jedi cinema distribution folder, there's some fascinating stuff in there. Also great to see the Wicket the Ewok transfer set, not easy to come by, I've been looking for one for years. Looking forward to seeing what you unearth next!

Re: The Palitoy Star Wars Return Of The Jedi Command Satellite

One of the scans, the one with the text, is mine - the others I think were from Dave Tree's Palitoy archive page (and appear to be taken from the same comic).

I don't have a date for the comic, but the Fan Club newsletter is from Summer / Autumn 1984.

Re: Competition - Free Endor Forest Ranger!

There once was a Wookiee named Chewie,
Who needed to do a big pooie,
But he didn’t know
Just where he should go,
So Han found his shoe a bit gooie!

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I’d said that one of my aims for 2019 was to pick up some significant UK store display pieces, can’t quite believe I’ve already got these on day 2! They’re store display posters for the Sphere novelisations of Star Wars, and for Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, together with a further store display stick...
