Very cool, Ricky. The art, descriptions and boxes make these very worthy items for any collection. Great to see them properly :)

Cheers Simon. Glad you share the love/appreciation for these cool pieces. Yeh hollow tubes for sure Aid!
Now for the next figure of the week:
Ben (obi-won)Kenobi
Text on cup reads as follows:-
"Is a Good and just Warrior of the Old Republic
He possesses a Special Knowledge of the Force "
Love the fact he's described as a "Just Warrior " not the description that always comes to mind when I think of Ben but of course we all know this fella could use a Saber!
Think the art work here is great as usual and nice colours
Hope u enjoy it
Cheers Ricky ⚒

Next up is Grand Moff Tarkin . Not much out there for this cHap so nice item. Text on cup reads as follows- " Is the Imperial Governer of the Deart Star,an Enormous Battleship That is Capable of Destroying An Entire Planet with One of its Blast" .
As before the colours are cool and Death Star is also shown so double bubble
Enjoy ,Ricky ⚒

Next up is that cool looking droid, the Death Star Droid. Art work as usual rather smart and text reads .....
"One of many Droids used by the Empire.
He is easily recognised by his Fearful Insect-like Face ."
Think this one is particularly cool as it includes a picture of he's face enlarged next to a picture of him standing /posing . Plus the added bonus of it featuring the Death Star itself .

Hammerhead- super cool art work here
Text reads "is one of several Star Wars cantina characters .Hes brain is in the hump of he's neck and he breathes through the opening of he's chest ."
I mean that's what you call some serous vintage Star Wars info ! " Breathes through he's opening of he's chest " and "he's brain is on the hump of he's neck"! Love it !
