Super spooky. The “nearly headless Nick” Rebel Commander. I had to zoom right in to figure out what was going on. Had me laughing my head off when I realised :lol:

Picked up this fella up the other days off eBay. I think he’s my favourite Luke incarnation, and IMO definitely one of the 3 iconic ROTJ figures along with BS and ERG. I know subzero hates this cardback artwork, but it’s actually one of my favourites - proper dynamic; so glad I could pick it up on a MOC. The bubble is fairly yellow (but crack and ding free) and there’s a bit of edgewear, but it’s pretty flat and not bad for a little over £100.

Luke Stormy, Han Carbonite, Lando General, Imperial Dig, R2 pop up and the four Ewoks. One day I'll finish it :wink:

That Luke Jedi's a beaut. I like the card too, near the top of my wanted Moc list!

Really nice Luke Jedi and loving all the latest acquisitions.

I’ve added two Tri-logo cardbacks recently, really enjoy collecting these as a side focus to the Kenner debut MOC run, which I will be adding to soon. :)

Fuck seeing his head of in a MOC must be right concerning for the mint on card collectors.

I do quite dislike the artwork considering they could have had one of Luke wielding his green lightsaber, which would have looked waaay better than this one, that being said it's not that bad really in it's own right.

Great price too for this, think I paid over double that being impatient, a big lesson learnt there. :?

Yeah not sure if this was an anomaly, I tend to see them go for £165 and above, so was well chuffed.

Great stuff, can't beat getting a bargain, especially when it's in nice undamaged condition. 8)

Some beautiful additions on here lately

As some may know I love my damaged cards and reseals, collecting on a budget

I'm a very happy bunny tonight as I have received a card and bubble today (20 back chewie, bubble lifted away on left hand side and a tear in bubble area) £40 posted ( already had the figure) I'm really pleased with how he has turned out and here he his with his best mate and scoundrel Han

Happy tonight
