Well done on that Fett Edd. Stands out a mile from what we’re used to seeing from Toni. That bubble is totally different.

Congrats on the trilogo Luke Stormy and Pali Hoth Han. 2 high up on my wants.

After nothing for around a year I had a little run of buys when the right MOCs came up. These 2 arrived from the US about a week apart off Facebook. The AT-AT Driver brings my focus up to 5, and the Bib brings my Canadian Focus up to 4. The Bib was pricier than your average yellow bubble version, but couldn’t find any other sales to know if it was a good price. I concluded it was a good price firstly by it being pretty rare, and secondly the clear bubbles on these have commanded a premium on past sales; in the region of a few hundred pounds.

Acrylic makes everything look great!! Thinking of encasing myself :lol:

I can’t recommend GW cases enough, as you say they make everything look great.
Congratulations on all the MOC’s being shown off, just got to love that Luke Stormtrooper and the AT driver, fantastic.

could do with a GW case for this - but not sure they make them this small :)

A Takara Zetca die cast X-Wing. Seemed a good price so thought I'd go for something a bit different. The regular die cast Falcon is in there for scale.

Gonna get them in order this time round. Thankfully I still have a few last 17 figures from last time round. :)

How Nice is that, family getting you the first 12. Happy belated b'day my friend. :)

P.s. Personally I think the filter looks great and gives an old authentic feel to the photo. :wink:

NICE! Love that Pali Han Hoth!

Picked this up a while ago, just forgot to highlight it. It's not the one that was recently for sale on Facebook, but that did jar my memory. I didn't pay anywhere near that FB price. :wink:

Also picked up this bootleg Leia prismatic pinback. It has no dates or manufacturing info on it, but it is vintage and was available through mail order only. Thanks to Todd Chamberlain for pointing this out to me and telling me the history of it. Looks very disco!
One pic with flash, one without.

Cheers all! Great pickups everyone!

My latest addition, all complete but not sealed. And also my reason for having to give Echo a miss.
