Very nice, glad you rescued them, did you pay a lot for them? most people at boot sales think star wars stuff is made of gold :D

Good find!

Saw a few vintage star wars things walking around Greenwich market this morning - all over-priced (pre-haggling anyway). Had a few loose figures, a couple of mocs and boxed ships.

Nice to see star wars stuff out in the wild - bound to be a few car boots over Easter so might go hunting!

They were a few quid each. SWRS (Star Wars Rescue Service - heard it here first! :lol: ).

There were others but not at the price asking. Quite a bit of modern about though but again price!

The Mrs and I are gonna see what car boots are on this weekend and check them out. Always good to find vintage in the wild, no matter how common or average the condition.

Last year's sales afforded me a snowspeeder is good nick, minus the cannons for £5, 12" Vader with cape, a bunch of vintage comic annuals and storybooks of the films plus a handful of beater figures. It's getting less and less common finding vintage but there will always be one more house clearance that yields a pop-up R2 or a boxed Imperial Shuttle. Gotta keep hunting. :wink:
