Always loved that ship, the size of it and design is just stunning.

Nice pickup 8)
Chavs are easily startled, but they will soon be back, and in greater numbers

Quick update for me, it's only been 3.5 weeks.

Page 2147
Apack7229 - Nice mini loose figure haul from the antique shop. What Stormtrooper helmet/mask is that?

Page 2148
Apack7227 - I love the look of the ROTJ Things to Make book. A great photo and the colour matches the saber, not seen it before. Nice.
Bonsai_Tree_Ent - Congrats on the unapplied stickers. How wonderful that you've finally found some :)
Grant - Mate i love that photo so much. Your T-shirt is so well worn/loved, so so cool.
tobedesu - Your mum did great there! Congrats on the great childhood find. Stuff like this is so cool to find.
coomber75 - bargain die cast landspeeder, congrats mate thats ace
peekaygee73 - Wow fantastic Takara Tie and lovely run of loose die cast. The Snowspeeder and DV Tie are ace and the guns on the X-Wing are very straight for a loose one.
Spoons - Great looking prints of the photo art mate. Not something you see ever. Very cool.

Page 2149
Capetown - Nice ISP6 with Meccano sticker, best of luck getting the other. Cracking Turret and Probot set.
apack7229 - Congrats on bagging a Fett mailer. Very cool.
laurencedyer - Sweet deal on the Star Wars programme, is it the first or second edition? From memory there were 2, i could be talking out of my backside but i think one was a bit more glossy than the other. I now need to go and check lol.
kvavik - great looking 12 A Palitoy Chewbacca, i can't believe it has a £1.10 sticker on it! What a great score :)

Page 2150
EddJedi - Congrats on the Blue Saber Jedi MOC mate, epic.
apack7229 - Good score on the Imperial Commander, especially if you're delighted with the price
NickIOW - Holy crap mate that Canadian Consumers Distributions AT AT is awesome
Dr Ball MD - Love that Shuttle, such a great ship. Congrats.

Page 2151
DublinJeff - Good one on the Alternative Vader, i can't believe you've created a new account lol
MarkG - Nice haul of cardbacks, catalogue and planetary map , plus the skiff instructions. You don't see Skiff instructions that often.

Great stuff everyone.

Jez, your correct on the two editions of the Cinema Brochure buddy.
I am not sure which edition it is and couldn't see anything to indicate it was a second issue / reprint so I am thinking it may be a first issue. That said I am totally unsure so if you know how to tell then let me know pal.

Laurence, the rarest (and imho the best!) is the British version. If you bought it off Ebay UK there might be a chance you have this version. Look at the page with all the cast/credits and at the bottom you'll see a reference to ordering more copies. If this is a UK address and the amount is in £ rather than $ then you have the UK version.

I often sell and move my collecting focus but there are very few items I miss, even less I regret getting rid of. My Meccano Kenobi was one of those items, something I never thought I'd own again.......until now that is :D
This isn't just any old Kenobi to replace mine, this is mine, the very same MOC that has been on holiday for 18 months in a far better collection than mine.
Once again I find myself thanking Max F for allowing me the opportunity to get him back, you're a gent and a scholar. Thanks mate.
