^ NEC is good.
Prices are varied: some bargains, some reasonable, some well over priced.
A lot of traders will do deals and haggling seems the norm.
I got Han and Zuckuss for £7, very good condition.
Ben with slight bubble crush and two small cracks plus Leia card for £40.
Leia Organa a bit dirty, she cleaned up fine, but otherwise excellent for £20.

Leia Hoth Palitoy 45c cardback? Nice! Not seen one of those before :) Looks like you got a good deal with that Ben and her.

Thanks mate.
It's a 45-back, but I'm not really clued up on them.

Thought the prices weren't too bad... Usual bit few crazy prices... £15 for loose and slightly battered snag no blaster, but some loose figs for 1-4 depending on quality. Some lovely moc items again variety of prices from 30 to 1k (fett) lol all in all well worth a visit

Sounds like a great event.
It's a bit of a trek for me, perhaps I should make the effort.
Thanks guys, some great acquisitions.

NOT AT ALL! that's made my day... I've started to run out of standard vinyl to add to my collection, this will be a happy distraction to find :D


And I bet it won't break the bank. :D


Found it on Discogs already = £3 plus post and (apparently) in mint condition

I bought mine from Discogs too. I was buying other LPs from a seller and noticed he had that. By 'good condition' he meant that I needed to Ultra-Pritt-Stick the cover back together.

Now, for the love of all mercy, let's not debate on whether to glue up old Ronco compilations! :o

Having fallen in love with the Canadian Special Offer exclusives - here's the AT-AT with free AT-AT Driver.

Just need to figure out how to fit it into the current display set up.
