My most recent addition.

I always thought Han Bespin was the best vintage Han Solo figure. I was surprised how hard it seems to find a card-fresh mint loose one, he usually has paint rubs to the hair on the many I have seen.

Managed to snag this beauty last weekend.

I hope you’re sitting down for this announcement.......I’ve only gone and completed a figure run that I set out to buy :shock: :lol:
Alright it’s only the 6 ESB bounty hunters but it’s quite an achievement for me.

The bounty hunters always look so good next to each other. That is a super clean Han, love it.

That 3 pack is next level, looks so good, love the packaging design.

Awesome Biker Scout, in nice clean condition.

One of my favourite carded figures, and the very first one I ever bought back in 2001.

Great Biker Scout you have there.

Brilliant figure the Biker Scout, very MOC worthy!

I’ve had a quiet couple of months but I did pick up a couple of items I find really interesting. First up Steve Sansweet’s Tomart’s Price Guide. Never knew there was so much Star Wars stuff beyond the toys out there! Holy moly! It really is an invaluable guide.

It’s also fascinating to see what’s gone up in price and what’s stayed the same since 1994. For example from the pages posted you can see that you can pick up MOCs from the Droids range from £15 but my haven’t they rocketed. R2D2 Pop-up. Lightsaber was £25 but now you’d be lucky to get it for 10 times that amount. On the other hand Han Solo with Carbonite Chamber was £65 and that’s about the same price today.

I’ve got hours of perusing ahead of me. :D

Second up is some Star Wars Blueprints. I know a few of you have these but they’re still really cool and worth another look at. Can be picked up relatively cheaply if you’re interested in that kind of thing.
