Gotta love that, the Chewie looks no different to an original sealed card when on display, for a fraction of the cost. 8)

Yes that's a terrific looking Chewie. Well done indeed for getting something that looks that good for a fraction of what it usually costs :-)

The diecasts are just wonderful. Especially love the X-Wing with the Palitoy logo. Just beautiful ...

Was the diecast Xwing the one on eBay 2-3 weeks ago? Finished for a great price if so.

Some really nice pick-ups!

It's been a while (around 6 years) since I last collected as I had a break and sold up but never lost the bug, so to speak.

Here are three starters for my Palitoy 65bk run...

I never knew this before but the Taiwan MOC's are slightly taller and slimmer than the Hong Kong ones. Always learning. :)

Really pleased with these as they were one's I used to have when I was a kid.

I used to focus on Biker Scouts but seeing as that's now been done by myself I've decided on another childhood memory. To be continued...

Good to hear you're back in the game, and some great pieces to get you started.

I think that the ERG looks great with no logo or offers to obscure it. Great card!
