I went mainly for the props and vehicles so didnt really look too closely at the stalls. I remember seeing a bit but uit seemed to be mostly modern funco stuff.

saw someone buy an ATAT driver on a repro cardback for £10 - I hope they realised what it was. otherwise there were a few genuine MOCs and a few boxed ships but the show seemed much smaller than last year.

the guy that got it had the look of a man who had snagged a bargain. No question that it was being sold as a genuine one, the real ones were a lot more pricey and at the back - some nice pieces

Sorry - I think the seller was straight up just the buyer was a bit hasty and didn't ask whether it was real
