Seen a couple of the Palitoy adverts sell for $40 on Facebook. Seems crazy when the comics are a couple of quid.

Saw this this week, a slightly different take on the Fett ad. Very lo-tech

I just had to Google 'moiré' to work out what you were on about!

I was aware of the phenomenon but didn't have a clue what it was called - you learn something everyday.

Hopefully i'll have something to add to this soon, picked up these bad boys from my local comic book store at the weekend.

There's plenty more, just have to hope they're still there after payday!!
