That's an amazing assortment of mocs you have there and as most have said the VCJ is amazing to see. Looks like you're back into collecting for sure :D

Thank you. The Gunner is the nicest I've seen personally.

Thanks Ian. Most certainly have the bug for sure, lol. Just 4 more loose Jawa's to get ( 2 x VC J's, a LL and a Cloth Cape). I want to get these usual suspects back...

That will be a cool project to complete the Falcon, good luck with it!

Well that's a very happy sight to see!

Great lineup of the usual suspects (well maybe not that usual).

My "May the 4th" acquisition arrived today!

After starting the journey almost 2 decades ago, my mostly "budget" first 20 is now complete at 21! I had honestly resigned myself to the fact that a 21 Back Fett wasn't going to happen in this lifetime! The card and bubble are in pretty nice shape and Mr. Fett does a great job of hiding the fact that the POP is cut out. Unfortunately, the tape that holds the rifle to the side of the bubble came loose during shipping, but at least it arrived in one piece from the post office.

Nice looking Falcon and like the retro Beano figures too. I used to get the Beano when I was younger, loved it. :)

Great looking Fett Seahawks and congratulations on finishing your 21 run, a real achievement. The tape on a lot of the Boba Fetts seem to come loose for some reason, it's probably due to the fact that the figure moves about so much due to the rocket backpack. I wouldn't let it spoil the enjoyment of it though as it's a stunning piece for sure.
