Did/ do you really take Valentines cards in to school for class mates and teachers???
They get weirder by the minute!


We give them out to the whole class and sometimes the teachers. Not just people we like. We also make boxes to put the valentines in. I’ll take the weirder part but I’ll have to make sure not to give you one otherwise you might think differently of me. :lol:

Some really nice MOC being acquired at the moment, love all of them and that Jawa is amazing. Nice Palitoy additions as well Edd, you certainly have an eye for good condition items.

Went to my local flea market and actually found some stuff. Yoda was my best pick up for only $5.

After months of not buying much at all, I finally pulled the trigger on a Princess Leia Organa Kenner 12 B back. I've had the Kenner 12 A and C for a while, but I had been dragging my feet on this one. It's not that noticeable of a variation except for the text on the back, but being a focus collector, that never stopped me before, so I guess I had to buy it sooner or later. :D Slightly curved card back with mild creasing on the corner, but the bubble is very nice.

Popped into a GW acrylic case, it flattens the card and really makes it look better.

Latest piece for me... just the base but makes a nice display item. Never realised how big these things are so won't be getting the other parts...lol.
