Just took this off a courier and i'm stunned at the size of the beast! Makes the stormie bin look slighty tiny :) Also got new Lando, digital face quality is so alike. All thanks to great packaging and price from Geet Toy Stores keep up the good work gents!

Nice looking helmet Chiffy :mrgreen:

As people may have noticed I’ve sold off a load of vintage recently (needs must and all) so I treated myself to a few cheapo Rogue One figures. Might save up for an AT-ACT next.

Great looking helmet chiffy, and those loose figures look great, the big walker sounds good, hope you get one for a decent price

Thanks Ian. I know a site that has them for £100 shipped which seems pretty decent compared to the majority of eBay

Snagged another unleashed statue from the bay, really impressed at the likeness for a six inch scale figure,

Been building up my collection of canon novels, and a couple of non canon, all in hardback.

Consolidation of modern advice required

Postby Taffius » Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:04 am

Hi all, not been here for a while or in country but just after advice about my "spreading" collection.
I do like modern BUT there is way too much to keep it all now never mind getting figures from all modern films and future probables.
Loved Rogue One and Solo and think packaging is done ok too so as I have only a few figures to get in R1 thats decided.
But (another one), reluctant to part with bargains.
Would really like to get more vintage but cannot resist picking up figures (modern) that are cheap and on sale! Classic impulse SW buying fever.
What do you guys do to retain focus and reduce spread?

Hi Taff

Good to see you back mate 8)

I am in the same boat as you at the moment, it doesnt help with the bargain stores that churn out SW stock at heavily reduced prices, they have you thinking that it is to good to miss especially with the price labels stating a massive discount, its all psychological dont you think? I dont know about you Taff but i am very impulsive ? Always have been.

My focus is Hot Wheels ships and Home Bargains had twin packs in the other day for £1.29, so i had to buy 4 packs :lol: again an impulsive buy.

Lately i am drawn to the black series :lol: But think a bit of self control is what is stopping me from snapping them up, plus i am running out of room :shock: i think that helps me personally to reduce spread and remain focused :D

I’m the same. I swore I’d give up on collecting modern then I see all the BS in The Entertainer. Luckily I’m only after a Scariff Stormtrooper if they ever get any in.
You may start your landing!

This is my collection for Rogue One. What is not pictured is the TFA 6 pack and TLJ Phasma/Finn 2 pack.
I say not included as apparantly these were released with Rogue One waves but how come they have different packaging?
