Great achievement Seahawks,
I wouldn’t let the missing POP detract from an amazing MOC.
Who looks at the back of the card anyway!

Sweet Fett!, I love how it's still sealed yet there's an access hole to put your finger in and actually feel him if you wanted to, mmmm...... :?

Hmmm. This comment and your 'man-whore' eBay search. I am starting to wonder Richard! :lol:

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.

Just received my first die cast Mocs!

The x wing was from eBay via Iain and the tie was direct from Iain himself!

Love them both and the acrylic cases make them look ace!

Possibly the cheapest way to get a sealed 12 back with the tie and love the ESB card for the X Wing!! So much stuff crammed on the back of the card!

I've never really paid that much attention to the die cast range before until now. I really like them, especially the X-Wing and the way they display on their cardbacks. Some great MOC's there. my friend. Thanks for sharing. :)

Thanks Carl, really appreciate the info link. Interesting and great pieces. So did the diecast range not go further than the ESB MOC's?

That was it as far as I know, the website belongs to Andrew Norton, Spoons on here. He’s the expert

Palifan wrote: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.

Thanks so much fellas! I'm honestly still in shock that I actually own a Fett MOC! I'm totally fine with the POP missing and like Mini mentioned, who the heck looks at the back of it anyway! :) Plus, it helped lower the "Fett Tax" a bit, so was a bit easier on the 'ol pocket book. And thanks to subzero, I will never look at a missing POP the same again! LOL!!

Those Diecast MOCs look awesome, especially in that acrylic! Congrats!
