I think that C would be the best option, gives you best of both worlds.

That Tri-logo Fett is stunning! Well done on that one 8) Love the beater Chewie as well- I'd find a Chewie cardback to slot in behind if it was me ;)

Carl, that's such a nice gesture- top man! 8)

Been a bit rubbish updating my stuff, so here are a few bits from the past couple of months, mostly for my childhood focus.

First up, managed to source a complete blue/red set of UK Topps bubblegum cards. Still have my very incomplete childhood set stuck into my scrapbook, but wanted a complete set. The Topps cards were the first SW thing I can remember really. The older kids at school would have massive stacks of them and would sometimes give away doubles (which is how I got my originals). I think I only ever bought one pack myself- I found out where to get them and I remember Mum taking me over to the other side of Cirencester to a small newsagent (Beeches Stores IIRC), after much badgering!

Can't really remember the yellow/green sets, so not too bothered about getting hold of those.

Next up is a Palitoy Imperial Troop Transport. Always liked this- I remember the advert well! Managed to get it for £50- it's in great nick, but it's missing the prisoner restraints, so need to track those down sometime. The battery terminals are also gunked up, so it will be a nice little project.

Finally, went to Cirencester Toy Fair yesterday and just couldn't say no to these two diecast ships. Both in great condition and well priced. The Action Man leaflet was a real bonus as I've been looking at these on Ebay for a while (usually around a tenner). Brings back huge memories for me- I think I eventually saved up for a 'Undressed Action Man' in the end. Absolute steal for a quid.

Yeah, definitely getting harder to find in good shape. The dealer said it was the best he had ever had. Same with Slave 1, as they're usually yellow.

Lovely Luke X-Wing, by the way!

Well, all the chatter about TRI Logo and their charms in my post about "when did they become more sought after than they were in the 80/90s" I took the plunge!
Saw this and thought that the bubble was good, so hey why not :?
One question though, the original price sticker has been removed and a Kay Bee $.99 has been stuck over the top, well mostly.
Did this happen in the 80s, ie Kay Bee over stock, or has this been done more recently to cover up litho damage and make the MOC more appealing?
Does anyone else have one like this?
Overall very pleased. :D

Thanks.
The purchase was super smooth, double packed,absolutely bomb proof, a real pleasure to deal with.
It is a small world, glad you like it, I'm really pleased with it.
My first TRI Logo (this time round), have you any experience of the Kay Bee sticker, just curious.
