The first ESB figure for the star wars toy of the week is Lobot, I will add some pictures later of my collection.

I never had Lobot when I was a kid in the 80s :( I remember I wanted to have him because I think he was one of the cool figures :lol:

Finally Lars, one that I can add to, been waiting patiently for a few weeks now? :roll:
I removed the orange sticker that was over the left hand Stormtrooper and stuck it over the top of the white one on the right.
I think that it has improved it?

Here are my slapheads. I only usually collect visually different loose variants, so here we see the vest pocket and belt differences across these three:

Nice MOC! Well done on moving the unsightly sticker covering the trooper's head :-). If you care, you might be able to improve the look of the area where the sticker used to be by gently rubbing it with a cotton bud dipped in surgical spirit. I have had great success removing all kinds of residues, including old price sticker and even dried up sellotape residue using surgical spirit.

I’ve read that Surgical Spirit is good for getting residues off, I have a few cards that I have removed the price stickers (I know that some love them, but some stickers are just in the wrong place!) but have always been a bit hesitant to remove the old glue.
Perhaps I will get some (from somewhere like Boots I assume) and give it a go.
This one would be a good one to try it on as the card has seen better days!
I’ll keep you posted, thanks for the suggestion.

Good luck and let us all know how you get on :-)

The residues I have removed have all been on the surface of the cards, to be fair. If your residue has soaked into the card, the improvement you achieve might be more limited, but I'd still give it a try.

Here’s my Lobot. Just have the one of him. Have to admit he’s not one of my favourites, but he’s in good condition.
