Pleased to say I have a Han Hoth 31 back tucked away for my Christmas this year and after seeing the Popy acrylic cases I really fancy picking one up so a Han Hoth focus could be next :D

Cheers for all the nice comments, might buy some more little acrylic cases for my baggies so they stand up in front of the cardbacks on the middle shelf so you see them a bit better.

Originally got this to flip as I've already got a Palitoy carded Yoda (41 back), but after fixing the name plate/back I've decided to keep him.

Stevie, that Yoda is ace. I'm not surprised you are keeping him.
Nice one mate.

I've heard best way to tell a repro stormie egg is see if it floats or not.

Some nice stuff on here guys. Hoping to add some more myself post-London Comic Con next weekend.
