Thanks chaps, very pleased with the Carrie items.

Can't believe that's PBP trooper for £4! Wow. And that R2 for 70 is incredible, Grant. Jeff, love the vehicles and CS Dewback. Still never owned one and would love to find a loose one cheap enough. Such a cool item I never ever saw as a kid.

I'm loving the Ewok wallet/purse, Hooch! Just brilliant :)

Boba Fett finally has his ship after all these years!

I never had a Slave One growing up, but finally found one for a great price. Was covered in dirt and grime, but with a little scrubbing with soap and water, cleaned up nicely. $26 USD (plus shipping) well spent.
