Fantastic pick ups there, love the Cloud car and the R2 is ace

Here's my latest with a little poetic licence :lol:

I have wandered the jundland wastes for a number of years,
I slayed the krayt dragon and retrieved the pearl despite my fears,
I have searched in vain for what seems an age,
I have Learned to quell my anger and my rage,
It is time to find myself my true home,
Where amongst others I am not alone,
Where I can retire, rest and be cared for,
Where I have a home and wander no more,
Now I am content and in my place,
Look closely you may see a smile on my face.

Ha! Great poem Mike and that looks like a cracking Sand People all nicely tucked up where he belongs.

Happy days! :D

Hi guys.

For those of you not on fb I thought you might like to share my latest addition.

The price sticker has a massive pull for me as toy and hobby was where I sourced many of my Star Wars toys back in the day.

Thanks

Mark

Finished my loose collection years ago, but have recently started up grading a few. The bling on my cloud security guards has always bothered me, but thanks to nick Rayner, no more.....

Pleased to finally get the Rebel Command Center this weekend from a friend and fellow collector! I wasn't a fan of the card playsets growing up but really like them these days...there's a definite charm in the simple detail. My friend was also kind enough to pack it with some white polystyrene which works nicely as a surround for display, while the MLC-3 helps account for the track marks in the snow!! :)
