No better feeling than finding stuff in the wild and in person, especially when the figures are as nice as those.

Nice one fella!

So it went from bad to good

I looked at the figures again last night and c3po’s right arm had snapped and was held on with blu tack, I’ve managed to push the broken bit that was stuck through from the other side so if anyone has a spare arm laying around please let me know.

And to the good bit, I went back to the charity shop and spoke to the lady who I bought the figures from yesterday and asked if she had anymore out the back, she said that there was another bag they went through that had some corgi cars in and a load of Lego and a few more ‘action figures’ told her I wasn’t interested in the Lego or corgi but was hoping what she called a few more action figures to be Star Wars and I was right!

6 more stiff minty figures without weapons, she remembered I bought the others yesterday and only charged me £20 this time. The Luke x-wing has a raised bar and the leia hoth has no coo (don’t know if that’s anything special) anyway I asked about the weapons and she didn’t have a clue what I was on about

Very happy with this bunch, Christmas has come early for me

Amazing find..... :o glad to see they are still out there...if you are lucky. Most charity shops these days are Google savy and check there prices against ebay..or the volunteers nab them out the back...but I suppose they need to really know the name of each figure to get a true value. Once found a General Lando in a a shop, they new he had some value as he was in the sacred glass cabinet at the front under carefull watch...but at £5 i snaped him up...unfortunately without his palace blaster and cape. Which i still haven't found at the right price...even though I wanted a complete one, oh well he was still a nice find.
