Ticket to Orlando?
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

A simple list for me

1. Han Hoth offerless 48 back (fingers crossed this is currently on its way to Iain's house)
2. A Palitoy die cast X-Wing MOC
3. A longtime grail that is tantalisingly close and I dont want to Jinx it :mrgreen:

Otherwise I dont plan to add too much this year, but some pre-prod die cast would be nice.

2016 was another great year collecting wise. Added pieces I really treasure.

2017 will start with:

1) Selling almost all my MOCs

Which will be followed later in the year by:

2) Buying back almost all my MOCs

3) A loose VCJ for £750 or less.

If I can do that and achieve some good selling prices and even better buying prices I will be one happy, happy bunny :D

I'm going to try and up my game this year and finish some runs so:

1. Trilogo imperial gunner (nudge nudge Simon if you're selling up!)

2. Try and complete the micro collection playsets. If I can't score the death star ones ill be happy with hoth and bespin.

3. Finish building my collection room. This is a bit of a cheat as I should be done in a week or so.

4. Thin out the collection once I've got it all out of storage with a stall at FF.

My goals, in no particular order:

1. Add more MOCs to my one of each figure collection. Getting close to just being the expensive ones though so might not add as mamy as I'd like.

2. Boxed Darth Vader TIE Fightet

3. Imoerial Sniper mini rig

4. Security Scout mini rig

5. Complete set of one cardback per figure

Overall just enjoy what I have. With prices being so high maybe I'll get a couple of Jabba's goons Or Ewok Mocs. I recon there's still some loose goodies out there at Bootsales, etc! Hope so anyway! Hopefully get a couple of Farthest Froms under my belt too.
