Chris, those balloons are awesome! I'm certain I remember them but probably on a peg rather than at my party. Waaaaah!

Another Palitoy item I've been after for a long time. An ESB Luke Laser Pistol :) Really tough to find and I think there's just one more Palitoy variation I need to complete the run, an ESB Han Solo Laser Pistol, the quest continues...

Mark, great selection of blasters! What is the story with the purple backing for the 3 Position Laser Rifle? (I've only ever seen them with red backings before).

Was bought from a childhood loft find a few years back. It's completely legit and another collector told me he had seen another one with a purple insert some years previously. I can only imagine that Palitoy ran short of the standard red card stock and used whatever similar stuff they had to hand, in this case purple.

We've talked about the purple one on the podcast. Think Gary Smith may have one?

I hope I don't cause WW3 by posting this. I don't normally go in for customs at all. But going through my box of beater figures this was too tempting. Made up of 2 loose limbs figures with various paint rubs I've created this:

I've seen others post them in past and of all the customs I've seem this is the one that does it for me. Luke Jedi final duel. Sits nicely next to my regular Luke Jedi, he look the business.

It's your Birthday, Dan, totally allowable. Actually, it looks brilliant.

Now that is a minty Vader. Beautiful!

Great blaster collection, Mark. They look awesome. See you haven't gone for the "Only-40%-of-the-box-left" variant of the 3 Positon laser rifle that sold at Vectis today :lol:

Nice Pali cardback, too. Enjoying picking up the card backs more and more and there are still bargains to be had.

Looks great... I'm at a loss though (and probably being really dumb)... what is the torso from?
