I was sorry to have missed FF but very happy that Steve Savory sent me a Han Towel as I sent him some images. He's lost none of his talent since the early work

Some great new pickups too. The 12 back Han and ESB farm boy Luke are very special. As is Iain's Yoda 8)

Many thanks Steve and here's the towel with your muse

A pleasure to send this to you, your images made it so much easier and such a better quality product because of it

Sensational aquisitions here. I wanted to post a few entries before, but holy-shit-items coming in here so fast ...
The Yoda sign is absolutely fantastic. I really like Edds FF haul ... that's what I would manage to collect over severeal years.
Andyclarkes 12a Paltoy Han is the best I've ever seen. And "sad" to see Lindos Vectis Luke - I too, was after this one, but I had a Luke Stormtrooper bought recently and hesitated. Congrats!

Absolutely wonderful is the Han Towel Part II. I remember SWCEIII, when I sat in the collectors track waiting for the next panel. Next to me was Steve Savory, which I never met in person before. "Do you swag?" he was asking (or sth like that, I don't remeber exactly), "Sure" and I gave him my ordinary buttons - then he came along with his Han Towel and I was stunned.

Here's my 'Farthest From' haul; some fantastic swag namely Jason's 'Lobstergate' badge, Daz's lobby card, James' Cantina beer mats and Steve's now legendary 'Han towel 2'.

I did buy a couple of things; a tidy 79 back AT-AT Driver for the focus from Nick and a Japanese game console cartridge from Rob - never going to play it, don't even know what to play it on but the artwork and in fact the whole package is wonderful.

Very pleased!!!

Awesome pickups Martin! Great looking ROTJ AT-AT Driver moc! The game you got is a game made for the Famicon released in 1987 and is a blast to play. The artwork is amazing, but the game itself, while a lot of fun, is completely all over the place. I'm sure the developers were on some strong narcotics while designing it. Lol
The best part is Darth Vader becomes a scorpion! I leave it at that. :)

If you are interested in trying it out, there are ROMs out there so you can play it on your PC. I can point you in the right direction if you are interested.

Congrats!

This may end up a bit of a long winded post so please bear with me. Whilst flicking through the last rather underwhelming vectis auction I stumbled across this item.

IMG_7390.PNG


Now I have been known to enjoy a speederbike or two. What caught my eye about this one was the mention of a Danish sticker. Due to the poor photo it wasn't apparent what the sticker was. I was hoping for the circular shok pris sticker. What turned up was this:

IMG_7386.JPG


Why on earth vectis did not take the photo from the other side of the box I don't know.

IMG_7387.JPG


A little bit of information that I have about this sticker is that it was applied by the Danish supermarket bilka. It reads: do not open. If this sticker is unbroken it is your garuntee the contents are undamaged.

The really interesting thing about this, or so I have been told, is that although the sticker is known, it hasn't previously been seen on Star Wars and was thought to be later. My little pony/masters of the universe.

Anyway, a cool addition to my little collection of bikes, and another indication vectis don't entirely know what they are doing.

Incidentally, the lot ended up costing me £60 plus fees, and I have to thank Richard for picking it up for me.

Finally, in addition to the last post, here are my ff pick ups.

Thanks nick. I'm so happy with these.

The Luke hoth has a lot of forum history too.

Just had my ESB Survival Kit Mailer back from UKG, very happy with it. I think it displays much better in Acrylic.

My first purchase in a while, and my first well overdue CCP. An absolute minter. Visually gotta be an 85, but little crease on the back where top of the bubble is, a few tiny other barely noticeable bits might mean it would slightly miss 85 if graded. Just right time, right price, clear bubble, mint ESB card, and I finally have one. Awesome figure and colours all round. The blaster fell out of the tape during delivery, and it took some VERY careful shaking and pressing into the bubble to get it back behind the tape. Phew :D

Congratulations on a great CCP. :P
I am glad that now you have it in hand its as good as you hoped.
Good work in getting the weapon back behind the tape, feels like a frustrating arcade game while doing it, doesn't it. :?
