Great bubble on the TL Nein Numb, how has it survived and the card hasn’t?

Great Fett, I thunk I prefer this card back to the “space” scene.

After letting go of my TT VC Jawa I was lucky enough to get a small conselation with this ESB R2 41bkD which I was after to complete my mini R2 focus and at a great price too. Really chuffed with it! :)

Stunning R2 mate, after one of these my self.
What cases are you using, they look good, or have you made a base and slipped it into a GW Acrylic one?
Looks great either way.

Congratulations to you all, amazing MOC’s

Thanks Nick. They don't seem to come up too often and the ones that are on eBay are rally pricey for what they are.

I always use GW Acrylic cases as they're spot on. I've customised all mine by putting a gloss sticker sheet on top of the sliding bottom. :)

I’m a firm believer in GW Acrylic as well, but what you have done to the sliding base makes a real difference. 8)
Again great R2, I will keep looking! :D

Thank you Nick. I feel it brings out the cardbacks more because of the black on black borders.

Good luck with the search my friend. :)

As said some great pick ups guys. What another interesting card variation regarding the die-cast Speeder :!:

Love the R2 too! That Kenner 41 with the blue back round is prob my fav Kenner Empire card back. The blue back round is sooo Empire, like the back of a 30 back 8) 8)
Looking for mint sealed or unused Palitoy Empire.

Thank you Jon and agreed, The ESB 41bk with blue background is one of my favourite cardback designs with the blues and the reds. Really stands out. :)

I just had to go for it mate as it was another clear bubble to compliment my previous 3.

At least you got the Snowspeeder, i had a cheeky bid on that too.
I only have a cardback.

I must say that the packaging at Vectis is 1st class.
This was well boxed and was placed within a larger box.

New arrival today, a UK 1982 Star Wars laserdisc in the British PAL format, opened, but with the original shrink wrap still attached. I love the classic imagery on this. Does anyone know whether it should have come with an insert?
