Well done on Nikto & Logray. Saved from possible u-graders.

I've seen people on Facebook admit to sending a MOC in to have the figure u-graded because the bubble & card were in terrible condition.

Maybe that is with AFA then because there is a bit on UK Graders website that states that they do not do it anymore.

So almost a year of collecting mocs under £50. Picked up some great figures at great prices. Chirpa and 3PO bought in 93. It was another 23 years before my next moc. Who says buying carded is pricey.

Well done mate, that's the spirit. There's still some bargains out there, it takes a bit of searching but really satisfying when you find them. Great collection.

This finished over a week ago so should be safe to post now. £43 for a Clipper MOC! I did spot it but forgot to bid. Had no mention of Clipper in the title so it went under the radar.

Yeah was watching this, but I am really trying to rein in my spending after a recent splurge, or else I certainly would have gone for this.

I've never been to Celebration and assumed there'd be no bargains there - why would there be with a huge captive audience!? Those are beauties.

I had £50-ish of Nektar points patiently waiting on a desirable MOC coming on eBay for that price. I just got this today - for £50 to the penny!
