Some lovely stuff there mate and definitely a collector with similar tastes to me!

Bit envious of Dash's Outrider - never managed to pick one of them up back in the day and always wanted that and the Slave I in Shadows boxes.

A pleasure to see such a diverse collection in such good nick too. :D

Tbh I were close not to buying that as I were just trying to concentrate on the actual film stuff but I were in Toys R Us (think that's where I bought it from) and at the time I'd bought majority of the figures/ships etc that they had on the shelf but the Outrider was sitting there whispering "Russ buy me just buy me" :lol: ...I gave in :oops: same goes with the Shadows figures as well....

After that I did see the Swoop vehicle but I never bought it...it's a piece I regret not buying

:lol:
You hear the same voices as me too! :?

I do have the Swoop but I'd rather have the Outrider! :D SOTE / KOTOR gave me a strange love for all things Swoop Gang related

I've seen Swoop on EBay a good few times but EBay is a gamble....I'd want a nice clean minty box one that's never been opened you can't really tell from photos

Yeah I know what you're saying there bud it is a risk but if anything is too bad I send it back!

Had people send me some items in Birthday paper and all sorts of odd paraphernalia over the years! :lol: (Ican laugh now but certainly didn't when they arrived!)

No matter what I couldn't collect without ole Fleabay. :D

Can't wait to see what else you've got :-)

Just looked on Ebay regarding that piece Chiffy,bloody hell your not wrong regarding the cost :o ...Majority of these seem to be in the mail away boxes but I did see one that was in a 'store box' for want of a better word and the price was staggering (around £130 something like that)...I'll collect the rarer pieces later and just concentarte on the standard single figure pieces....

You say you have loads of modern pieces that you may have for sale....I'll be contacting you after I get paid (end of the month) and slowly take some pieces off you if thats ok mate
