Farthest From is great for collectors of all budgets, I've been before without buying anything just to catch up with everyone :)



I have to agree my first farthest from was April last year and been to them all since and the first time I went I only had £50 to spend and I was very happy with what I picked up. Personally i enjoyed looking at everything again as I had only just started getting back into it after 15 years.

I enjoyed the experience of everything there and walking about having a chat with fellow star wars collectors.

Wise words indeed.

Sitting recording at this very moment - Simon boring the hell out of me at this time hence why I'm on forum


This would explain why you answered the wrong question about half a dozen times last night :P Anyway, I was asleep by then having listened to you moan about being picked on unfairly. Again.

Yes I really enjoyed that too, reminded me of my early collecting days as a teenager when it would take me weeks to save up for each MOC. Makes a change from all the millionaires on Facebook boasting about their daily AFA 85 purchases


Hey guys! This is the Kentucky fellow that was featured, talking about my hunt for the 12 backs.

First and foremost, I sincerely appreciate all of the kind words! It was a tough ride and took a lot of time but worth every second and penny! Since the podcast recording I restarted some of my other 90s based figure collections like TMNT, Power Rangers and Batman.

I just got a shipment of acrylic cases from GW acrylics for my 12 backs that were ungraded to keep them protected. I bought 7 for $125 counting shipping. (US obviously)

I’m new to this site so I will post pictures to the forum as soon as I figure out the upload process!

The entire podcast was great! I’ve since went back and listened to at least 5 others. Much respect for you guys across the pond!

Thank you very much for sharing your story on how you managed to collect a 12 back run, is was very interesting and heart warming.
I am looking forward to seeing them in thier lovely GW acrylic coffins!
