Ah, thank you Nick. That's the same one that Carl sent me the link to. I thought when you mentioned about spending there were MOC's for sale on there but it's information only site. Still, very good site and some great pieces on there. Thanks again for the help. :)

Thanks to amazing generosity from a fellow collector in my period of not spending I’ve managed to acquire a 47back to join my other ESB carded R5s

Lovely Rich, you’re doing well for someone who only collects loose!

Nice! Congratulations Richard. I think it’s time to take that loose collector label you’ve been wearing, wad it up and throw it in the trash. :)

My latest acquisition was this stunning A-wing pilot!... The best at all is what I paid for it:

It was last Saturday, I went for a walk around the charity shops looking for some books. Then I saw a box with lots of figures and then...I spot it!! I ´ve asked how much..then, I could not believe my ears when the girl said 50Pences!!!!!

Enjoy lads!

Sometimes you find the goods in the most unlikely places, like this 1977 Scandecor licenced poster at a 1940s themed country fair this weekend. Not in the best of nick, but for £7 I'll take it. I believe these can go for over £150-£200 in mint condition. And I kinda like that it tells a story, with the tape and blu-tac damage I can imagine it taking pride of place on some kid's bedroom from '77 into the 80s. I've done some light, sympathetic restoration taping up the edge tears and I'm going to find a decent frame to display it. It's got bags of character!
