My name is Justin Lea from Australia.

Thanks for the great work everyone does and chat soon.


Hi Justin,

Great to see a returner. I have only been here a few months and even though social media seems to be dominant around the world, this forum I feel takes a niche spot amongst them all. The experience and advice is freely given and very welcoming. I also found the more you get involved the steeper the experience curve gets. Enjoy and look forward to your contributions from Australia.

Taff

P.S. dont forget the podcasts!

Get to know Andy (spoons). He’s a die hard Die Cast lover.

Hi Taff

Thanks for the welcome, I am concentrating on the vintage ROTJ line, I have other collectables like glasses, lego figures, prints and my prized Harrison Ford autograph that sits nicely in my office.

Take care

Russ


I seem to me more drawn to ROTJ too. I remember that film better than the other two! :D

Hey guys NOOB here....well kinda hahaha

Im 49 years old from the USA living in indonesia.

Just a few months ago I was able to get back some of my original SW figures after my parents passed.I had no idea good ole mom saved them after all these years!!!


I got 30 ish figures, most are not worth much at all but its like a dream come true to know that there are the ones i played with!!! I did get my blue snagg and jawa!!! ive done some research and im 99% sure my Jawa was a VC however of course I dont have the cape..... The markings seem to be a VC but hes in bad shape.... oh well at least I know he was my original Jawa :-) I would have to say my most prized is my Vader with original cape " missing the saber" :-( and Boba, and 5 good looking storm troopers. Anyways im getting back a small lump of money from them passing and I plan on spending some of the money on something that would always remind me of my great childhood. Im going to take the plug and buy something that I can enjoy till I pass then pass along to my grandson. Ive got it down to three items:

1. MOC Vader " Have my eye on a ESB with revenge of the jedi sticker"
2. MOC Boba Fett
3. Loose Luke DT saber figure

Ive always been a Empire fan so im leaning towards the Vader and Boba however there are so many Vaders thats its hard to pick from hahaha

ESB vader with revenge sticker or 12 back Vader.....
ESB Boba or Return of the Jedi Boba.....

Ive been told this is how it all starts...... buy one MOC....and your going to want more :-)
Now only if I win that lotto hahahahahah

Welcome jt1969. So sorry to hear your news but this forum is great for such support and advice.

I am new too and my choice personally would be the boba moc.
Perhaps not as iconic as other two but i am biased in my choice. I am sure any one of the 3 would be a great choice.

There is some depth of experience here to enhance your decision making so hope it goes well and we get an update on the decision. :D
