It was last Saturday, I went for a walk around the charity shops looking for some books. Then I saw a box with lots of figures and then...I spot it!! I ´ve asked how much..then, I could not believe my ears when the girl said 50Pences!!!!!

Enjoy lads!


Fantastic score! That really does remind me of car boot sale find from years ago. Good to know those finds are still out there.

Not in the best of nick, but for £7 I'll take it. I believe these can go for over £150-£200 in mint condition. And I kinda like that it tells a story, with the tape and blu-tac damage I can imagine it taking pride of place on some kid's bedroom from '77 into the 80s. I've done some light, sympathetic restoration taping up the edge tears and I'm going to find a decent frame to display it. It's got bags of character!

Great story and I've learned something there. I'll be looking out for one now :mrgreen:

some absolutely cracking buys lately. Tigs haul is amazing, but I'm most impressed by how the Power Droid tunred out. It looks great.

Congrats to Roundster on his first steps on a slippery slope and thanks as ever to Carl for plugging the website!

Outstanding purchases guys! I get more of a thrill reading about bargains in unlikely places than I do buying stuff from regular places for myself! 50p A-Wing Pilot is one of the best finds since about 1995, surely?!

That makes that loose A wing pilot for 50p seem expensive. :?
Very well done with that one!
