Here are my pick up from Echo. Paploo and Rebel Commando are from Simon. The latter is an early birthday gift from my missus. It's the first time anyone has bought me vintage since I was 6. Been looking for ESB puffy stickers for a while at a reasonable price, finally have set.

Well here goes for my first post.

My latest acquisition are a pair of Aussie Toltoy MOC Die Casts.
First seen these on a completed listing search on ebay after talking with Spoons about another MOC Die Cast. The Toltoys Landspeeder and Tie Fighter had finish a day or two earlier at a very cheap buy it now price. My first thought was id be very happy to pay double those prices and considering the rarity of the items even triple :wink:

So I thought about it for a couple of days and started to get the blues. It was only after seeing another totally unrelated MOC Die Cast get relisted by a dealer at twice the price that made me think........and bingo!!

Turning on all my Facebook notifications for the 100+ pages and setting new ebay searches with every possible variation, I was set for the long wait. A few days later I was a zombie and mentally drained from all the notifications id checked but I couldn't let it go.
Couldn't believe my eyes when I opened my Facebook notifications to find the Tie Fighter up for sale by a well known dealer for double the ebay price.
Typed SOLD that fast I had forgot the obligatory PM SENT post. Contacted the seller and asked if he had picked up the Landspeeder as well. To my delight he had and we worked out a deal for both.
Arrived safely back home in Australia and have taken center stage of my collection wrapped in acrylic cases.

It's been a while since I last looked in on this thread, and WOW I'm blown away by some of the things that have been showcased, great stuff guy's.
With so many great/rare/interesting pieces being brought of late it's making me feel ashamed to post up my mundane run of the mill figures.

Great first post Justin! It must be nice that a couple of Australian pieces have come back to the motherland too :)

Loving the Harberts too SOJ,

The iggies, Luke, Attack Base and puffer MOC and stickers aren't bad either!
