Spoons, no problem, glad you could use the photo and the info. Congrats on the website by the way, great resource :)
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar and Leia Hoth. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

Lovely Trilogo ERG Iain, great story on the miscard Ben. Loving the photos Seahawk

One of my goals for the year was to get a couple of "foreign" MOC. I posted up a photo of my Meccano Ben several weeks ago.

I added my first Harbert this week. Chuffed to bits with this, think he looks get next to Meccano Ben.

I also attended Echo at the weekend and picked a few bits which I'll post up some pictures of when I get five. Great catching up with Grant, Stuart, Simon, Nick, Ben, James and Mark. SWFUK represented.

Seahawks wrote:My latest acquisition is a set of photos I found over the weekend while visiting my parents during their 50th anniversary. They brought out a box of pictures that had been stored away and covered in dust for decades. While my sister and I were rummaging through them, I found this small set of pictures from my birthday in 1979 which I'd never seen before.

Pretty dang cool to have photographic evidence of where my obsession began.

Can you name all the Star Wars items in the pictures? :)



Love these photos. No flash, shallow depth of field, clearly an SLR. Who was the photographer? They must have been into their photography to have one.

Loving those old photos mate, can't put a price on 'em.
Also loving all the other pick ups on here.
Here's a not too obvious miscard I picked up.


Brilliant R2 miscard! Love it.

spoons wrote:I'd agree with that - carry case too? What a find Seahawks - really pleased for you


Well done guys. Here is the list of what I found while studying the pictures. I'm 90% confident that the last couple of pictures is me opening the Falcon. It makes sense as I've had it as long as I can remember (I actually did a full restoration of it a year or two ago). :)

Thanks for letting me share my trip down memory lane. These photos go right up there as the most cherished of my SW collection.

So many great bits and pieces. Love those vintage photos! Never found one of mine :(

Dan, amazing Vader! Ben is a beauty too. Love pair.

Adam, that's quite a haul of gangly droids right there! I'm not a massive fan of the various custom cards but that Droids IG-88 is different. Love it. So well executed. Did Bill Cable do those? How many were done?

Great stuff all round as always chaps. A real pleasure to visit this thread.
