Luckily though the Zuckuss figure I already have was a free figure so according to the 'special Star Wars maths' iv'e paid £13.50 for a complete Zuckuss 8)


damn I did not know such a rifle cost £13,50 today :shock: and it is not a weapon that is easy to break or do get lost easily in childhood lots :shock:

I probably could have got it a little cheaper though maybe under £10 if I was a lot more patient and waited for another one, I just can't be dealing with looking at just 1 incomplete figure in my collection :lol:

Plus I didn't mind the cost so much being that I didn't pay for my Zuckuss figure, if I did pay for it then I wouldn't have spent this much on the weapon.

I miss the good old days where you could get it for £1,50 :D I am glad to read that all your figures now is complete. Did you ask on the forum for such a rifle ? I am not sure if I have one, but maybe I could have helped you :D

Thanks, I only usually buy figures complete to save the hassle ( and extra money ) trying to get spare weapons, with the exception of Zuckuss, I have about 20 figures left that I want for my collection now.

I did half think of putting a wanted post up for the rifle but I seen the ebay listing and pulled the trigger lol

Too many to list, but mostly ROTJ and some others, i'll be gradually buying them over the next few months :)

I recently went mad and bought a popup sabre. Amazingly, the sabre survived intact in a very worn looking figure which I'll sell on soon to reclaim some of the wallet damage.

Now all I need is to replace the green Endor blaster on my Awing Pilot with the correct black one and I'm 100% proper. I must say though, he suits a green one so I'm not in a mad rush.

I'm not sure what do do with my Luke Stormy. I'm quite happy with his blue/ black blaster knowing that some trilogos had that. And, as a kid, it would have been a trilogo I had. I did pick up a solid black in a lot but with a little bit chewed off. I dunno whether to use that or sell it to someone cares more for the funds.

I'm the same iv'e stuck with the blue/black, way cheaper and like you say it helps knowing it came packaged with one too, and in my display unless I remove the blaster and look at it close up it looks black anyway lol 8)

I'd rather spend the money on another mint figure or two I think..
