Lee I have thought about it pretty carefully If I can buy it for less than £20 from a forum or I can get it for any amount under this on E-bay with only me bidding and I can find at least three others for sale it's fair game.

Well stop boring everyone and get on with it, you're quite clearly in the minority. Posting a question that you should know won't go down well in here makes you look like an attention seeker, it's boring.
I for one and many others, im sure, won't sell you a beater moc on here now.
So jump on eBay and hopefully you'll find a moc that meets your criteria and you and your little friend can have your moment of shared nostalgia, please then start a thread about how the pair of you felt so I can read it if I'm ever struggling with insomnia :roll:

Benny I have been asked by one of the moderators on this board to provide feedback on the whole experience so I'm going to. If you have an issue with that, it's your issue...
I am going to every length to make sure I'm not destroying anything that could be missed and I'm giving two beater Mocs a home.

OMG! :lol:

Make it sound like your going to do something profound like your first wingsuit dive off a cliff or asking someone to marry you.

Move over Ernest Shacklton, the 21st Century Men of today have arrived. :lol:

I'm going to do something I haven't done in 31 years, and I'm quite looking forward to it.

What are you going to do if I come back and say. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of opening a vintage Star Wars figure that it took me right back to being a little kid and all in the experience was totally positive....

No thinking about it at all Rob. I'm really looking forward to this just waiting on the right MOC.
