never seen this one, but would love to, has anyone got any?

loose is as good as Mint for these threads!
I prefer trading items to buying them, have a loose run, about half the ships/vehicles and all the mini-rigs, spent under £200 and have had a blast doing so. This hobby doesn't have to be about spending a mortgage deposit every month on one item

Right, these are from the bottom of my children's 'tiny Star Wars' toy box. I bought a job lot of them years ago for my kids to play with and they have been fantastic value for money. The older two kids have outgrown toys, but my youngest still plays with them occasionally. The figures are a little bit battered but not too bad considering.
