Have considered but think I’m quite particular. I imagine it’ll be a long-burner of a project this one because of financial restrictions and stipulations. :lol:

Thanks for heads up Jez. Looks a real beaut. Imagine it’ll travel out of my budget but I’ll be definitely watching this one.

Thanks for the link Carl mate.
Cheers lads, yeah he’s a nice one. Not sure what it’ll go for. It may stall where it is. Whatever happens I’m sure the winner will be happy.
Any Qs just ask.

I’ve thinned down my Luke X Wing collection a bit in order to free up funds to purchase some other MOCS. It occurred to me a few months ago that after selling all of my non LXW MOCs at the end of 2016 to help purchase my house, I miss them. My collection became too well, um, orange. So I decided that in order to get some variety back in my life I’d sell some Lukes.

At FF I purchased a lovely graded Palitoy 20 Bk LXW (which is been saving for all year) hence why this chap can go.

My Lukes still look nice but thankfully I’ve got some other pieces now to dilute the orange.

Selling the Kenner 21 will give me funds to reinvest into a different MOC.

Are you a member of Jabba’s Palace? Not Jabba’s Court. Palace is the auction group.

Lovely Palitoy Greedo. Great choice for the front card of the display.

Greedo is a great card to have at the front, is that a RoTJ proof on the right?

Thanks guys. The Greedo cost me £45 in November. It’s a partially opened bubble which allows the figure to be removed but it displays great. The Leia Hoth is the same. Both with original figures and weapons, in fact the Leia weapon is still originally taped to the bubble.
Bargain.

The proof is a Revenge not Return.
