I have an exact location on that map from echo now. Unfortunately it's all 40ft under now so we're going to need a bit more than a few big shovels....

:-p

It could potentially be a goldmine. Shipping cases full of goods! Even if the cardboard was completely spoiled the plastic would be fine as it takes 1000s of years to degrade, and you would have to presume that this happened at the end of the line so the figures would be POTF. Boxes of Yak Faces, Luke Stormies, EV 9D9's , pop up R2s... yes please. Even without packaging could be 100s of 1000s £££.

Alas, I think we need to go more stealth on this to get away with it.

Where are all the General Madine tri-logo carded figures?

General Madine on a Jedi card was always a pegwarmer... but what if the real reason why so few Madines on tri-logo card made it out to the public was because Palitoy - having realised that the figure was a poor seller - decided to withhold the tri-logo stock. Stuck it away at the back of the warehouse... and eventually cleared the space and sent it to the landfill.

Where are all the General Madine tri-logo carded figures - they are buried in the landfill!!

Its a bloomin' long time underground for anything of worth to have survived... having said that.. bear with me here... I started a compost heap (well a lazy pile of garden crap, newspaper and card) about 10-11 years ago. I didn't follow any of the guidelines on watering it and turning it, just piled it up.
Anyway about a fortnight ago I decided that due to a shed requirement to create storage space which will eventually clear a room to give me a new large collecting room... I said to bear with me... anyway I needed to clear the old heap.
The top half was dry and went in sacks to the tip, the next layer reasonably rotted and made its way into my veg beds, the bottom layer though that was at the time layered with cardboard and the oldest part of the heap had all sorts of definable stuff... egg shells, melon skins, newspaper with print still legible and cardboard boxes/sheets (the laminated print from lolly packaging for example (similar to a card-back I guess) were most notably recognisable as well as other boxes with some structure to them.
It can't be beyond belief that under 40ft of back fill a few pieces may well be worth picking out even in our climate. Certainly an interesting dream that will capture more than just our imagination I'm sure!
