My latest pick ups, two lovely Palitoy 65 back Stormtroopers, complete with trilogo bubbles so no worries about them being Toy Toni's. I really love these logoless and offerless Palitoy cards with trilogo bubbles, a new side focus maybe?

Another immigrant from the states arrived this morning :lol:

A bit disappointed though that it arrived a bit warped and with a crease vein running from the top of the bubble to the top of the card, it was mint in the ebay pics so I reckon the stupid ebay staff at the global shipping centre have mishandled it when repackaging it :evil:

Anyway, I have a nice final piece to pretty much complete my MOC collection, onward and upwards :)

I'll be honest mate I'd be sending that back or at the least seeking a partial refund, that is clearly not what you paid for

Cheers, i've actually just fired away a message with pics requesting a partial refund :)

Plus I did get this one fairly cheap compared to what it goes for here in the UK anyway, so i'm not overly disappointed.

Thank you for all your kind comments re my AT-AT Driver - still so pleased to have him! And to answer a couple of questions...

lejackal wrote:Lovely mate, how many is that now?

Cheers Carl - this brings it up to 30! Bonkers, right?!

Thanks Ove - according to individuals far more knowledgeable than I, this is one of just five or six known examples of a 45a Palitoy AT-AT Driver moc and is the one I thought I'd never get; and if it wasn't for the litho tears I probably wouldn't have been able to!

WOW on both fronts, 30 examples is fantastic but to also have a one of single figures item is epic, well done mate!
