Haven’t posted much here for a while, but this arrived today from SAVORY100.
I know that the back has the first owners marks of what figures he had and wanted, and what a lucky chap he was!
But I find the marks, circles and ticks endearing, one of the main reason that I went for it.
I can imagine him hunched over the card marking which one he already had, what do you think?

So what have you shown off in 4 days? Some amazing carded figures!

Page 2161
Laurence: Great score on the Spanish Tri Logo Amanaman, great sticker on the reverse
Roundster: That's a real shame about the R5 but those 3 for under £200 is great. 3 cracking figures, no pun intended.

Page 2162
Thomas/Sweden: I simply love the Chewie card, great pick up.
Edd: wow mate that's a great tactic which has really paid off for you. Well done mate.

Page 2163
Mini99: I love that too! A great Han carbonate there mate.

Love the Han Carbonite, I also think it’s cool having the figures circled on the back.

Haven’t posted on this thread before but happy to finally get my hands on a Hollow Cheeks Tusken Raider and for under £100 including postage. One of my 2017 goals ticked off and should have another one to show you guys later in the week :D

Very nice Han carbonite.

I'm also a bit of a 'history guy', i'm fascinated with the past and believe in preserving it so to see those markings on the back is quite cool. It's a piece of actual collecting history recorded on the card, can't beat that!

Very nice!

And here’s one of my other goals for 2017 ticked off - an AT-ST Scout Walker. Very happy with this one. Thanks to everyone who chipped in with their verdict on the packaging on my previous thread. :D

For 30+ years this old timer has been without a cape. With winter coming I felt it was time to put that right. A few quid off a reputable dealer on Ebay and I’m chuffed to bits that my childhood Ben finally has a cape. It’s not the biggest purchase but sometimes it’s the small investments that are the best.
