Not posted in a while, but February/March have proved hideously expensive for me.

Image

I realised my collection was missing MOC's and being a Palitoy man if I was going to start collecting them it would have to be this route. Sadly I don't earn Premiership players money so the only I can afford a set of the 1st 20 is going the re-seal route. Once Jamie sorts me out with some cases these will look fine for me on display.

Managed to finally get hold of a 1st issue ESB Palitoy X wing in a nice box, a mint and complete 12" Luke and a stunning upgrade to my Landpseeder.

That is one he'll of a February Mark :shock:
That Landspeeder is a superb box and the original X-wing in ESB box is one of my fave pieces 8)

Is that a large head Han?

That really is a brilliant picture all round.

Congrats

Looking for any Palitoy logo esp. 30, 41 and 45a.
Also looking for any 20back droids and cantina aliens on any cardback.

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.



You da man. Bringing it back from the dead to be cherished again :D

Been after this item in Good condition for a while , Reminds me of Christmas in the 80's, Mum and Dad buying a copy of Tv Times and Radio Times for me and my brothers and us circling what to watch, cutting out the best pictures and arguing of course :lol:

That TV Times really takes me back :D , when I see the hoarder programs on telly and you see stacks of these mags, I wish I could go through the old magazines to pull out all the SW related one's to keep before they are pulped and that Palitoy x-wing and Land speeder are just amazing :)

Reseal or not, Mark, that's a fine looking instant MOC collection right there.

Dav, that TV Times is awesome. That makes me more nostalgic than anything I've seen for quite sometime. Love the "Channel 4 is coming too"! I take it that was advertising a screening of ANH rather than ESB despite them using ESB art on the cover.
