These are a couple of mail away pieces I got...

A special edition Commtech chip also the two other boxes (I think) are 2 of the Jar Jar Binks 'sticky tongue head's' that you could get through the crisp packet offers if remember rightly (I've never opened them and are still sealed)...

This is an official flyer advertising when Ray Park was due to visit the Forbidden Planet store in Leeds in 99' to do an autograph signing session...which didn't happen because the Yorkshire Evening Post newspaper wrote a segment in their paper on how 'movie stars' are cashing in on the fans by charging for autographs (mainly aiming it at Ray Park) so the session got cancelled at the last moment.....

It would be good if I could get Ray Park to sign this flyer...that would be a great one off piece...but not sure how this could happen tbh....

Inspired by Spoons' tentative step into the world of POTF2 on the acquisitions thread I'd thought I'd put up some pics of my graded THX figs. Last year I posted photos of my Euro POTF2 Long Picture set so this is a bit of a companion to that. :wink:

Its taken me years to build these up and get them graded when I can afford it. I've got a soft spot for the POTF2 line as I was a student at the time and felt like a kid again searching through SW figs on a store hangar! The THX leaflets were in the first wave of POTF2 figs in 1995 and were included to promote the OT being remastered in THX sound and released on video for 'one last time' as the ads said! :D

Still got a few to go including Threepio, Chewie, Han, Lando & Leia so if anyone has nice clean cards let me know.

Finally got round to installing Lights in my Hot Toys display Cabinet, so thought I would post a few photos as I am well chuffed with how they have turned out.

Got a lot of love for the 1995 wave 1/2 Orange card Potf2 cards. I too was a student, back in the good old days. Thanks for sharing these they look A1 in acrylic. Might have to get some cases for my 'first 9'

Hi Folks,

I am sure many of you will be aware of the new Haslab platform launched by Hasbro this weekend and their exciting first project - Jabba's Sail Barge! https://www.hasbrolab.com/

Of course, Hasbro have kicked this off by ignoring the collecting community outside of the US :roll: however... Jedi Temple Archives are trying to get Hasbro's attention regarding this via an online petition (of sorts). Who knows if it will work but if you are interested in a Sail Barge and future Haslab products its worth adding your name to this:

NFS - My inadvertant modern collection is growing. At this point it will surpass my vintage! :shock: I know nothing about these but just like the look of these and characters I like, however anything mighty fine in there?
