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.

I find myself leaning more toward oddball items these days.
My latest pickup is a comic from the Pendulum Press curriculum circa 1978. My wife is a teacher and I told her that one of these days I hope to get the entire curriculum. If I do, I will go in and volunteer teach the course for her class. She rolled her eyes at me of course, but mark my words. :)

Love the artwork on the cover along with the school stamp, Knox Memorial Central School. Out of curiousity, I looked up the school itself and found it shut down back in 1986.

I used to look at those school books in the old Tomarts book and thought how cool the artwork looked.

I started to do the same thing when Boba Fetts started to raise. Have my eye on a Darth Vader toothbrush at the moment. :lol: The best thing is for the most part they’re cheat right now.

Hello Folks, Had some success at local toy fair today!

Not been to this Toy Fair for years but thought would drop in today, is mainly Cars and Trains, but there was one stall where the fella had a load of Star Wars..... was mainly newer stuff, losts of Episode 1 figures, Ships, 12 inch figures and a few boxes full of all kinds of stuff.

Dug out half a Speeder Bike, Landspeeder but with back middle exhaust port and windshield missing, The Falcon Cargo Ramp, AST 5, and a MLC3.

The MLC had a figure in it which turned out to be a Han Solo, also got a sealed Salious Crumb Baggie.

Han cleaned up well and looks good, red lines very clear on legs , think maybe missing a finger though!

Got both for a tenner! Also was a decent loose Chirpa minus weapon for a fiver but gave him a miss.
