Not been on here for a while, that thing called work gets in the way plus had to look for a new car as mine is getting to be very unreliable :x :x

Some great pick ups guys, love the die cast 8)

I am going to Dorset next Friday for a well earned break and was wondering if any of the members knows of any decent places down there that sells vintage SW :?:

Thanks Russ :D

Just picked up this Canadian Luke X-Wing for my focus. Big thanks to Jez for this one, he not only found it for me in an obscure Facebook group, but also passed on it for his own focus to let me have it. Very much appreciated mate.

Managed to double my SW offerless 20/21 backs this week with these two little beauts. Been holding off for the right prices for a while, then 2 come along like buses. The bubble is beautiful on R5D4 and it’s a short V Power Droid too. :D

Really cool diecasts 8)

Lovely Luke, Edd.

Those droids are absolutely superb 8)

About time I posted something in here- managed to get a couple of cut bubble Palitoys recently, along with a Palitoy ESB Luke Skywalker. Also got hold of a couple more items for my childhood focus: Palitoy ROTJ competition leaflet, TV Times and Shreddies advert.
