Nice figures once again Russ.

You need to try and get some of the bonus Battle / bonus Pit droid figures but some of them go for crazy money!

Cheers guys 8)

Got to agree Grinchy,the artwork does really standout on the cardbacks,far better than the POTF 2 cards...

I really liked Darth Maul it's a shame that they killed the character off in the first episode,they could easily have built a lot more around him and maybe have him around in the early stages of when Anakin slowly started to get seduced by the dark side...such a waste of a great character.....

@ Jeet....I'm gonna concentrate on the easier to get figures (and cheapest :lol: ) before I go onto the rarer expensive stuff mate....

I think I'm gonna try and get the full single figure collection in the ROTS line first 8)

Yeah fair play I can understand that.

ROTS line was good I have the basics myself and some of the card variants like Sith eyes Anakin etc. I used to be a sucker for my variants! :D

I do have a few doubles amongst this lot as at the time these figures were a twat to find especially the R2D2...I only ever saw two of these on the shelfs and thats the two I have in my collection,same goes with Leia...For some reason my local TRU,Asda etc just didn't get these figures in but there were always plenty of the other figures...

Also the Lando figure I only ever saw one of these on the shelf and thats the one I have....bear in mind this was a time when the internet and ebay etc... wasn't really widly available to everyone (95'-96') so the only places that I knew of to buy 'hard to get' figures were toy fairs etc...

more to follow......

Russ, I well remember how difficult it was to get the R2 back then. Had it for years then sold it. Not that easy now to find a decent one but I finally replaced it a few weeks back from a bloke on FB for a decent price. One set of figures I never saw at retail were the red carded SOTE. I got the purple ones but have since replaced them with the red carded tri logo versions.

She was never released on a SOTE red card, only on a green card as part of the regular figure line, which was strange. I think I bought my purple carded set from toy fairs etc rather than shops. There was also two 2 figure packs in the SOTE line both red carded and purple. Did you have them?

No I didn't have any two pack sets only single figure sets....I do have Leia Boushh in the standard green card (not put up my green card photos as of yet) but she was released in the purple SOTE line (from what I've seen on EBay anyway)

That's a shame that it wasn't released on a red card....if I buy the purple card I'd have to buy the rest in purple cards to complete that set....talk about the snowball effect :lol:

That will teach me to read the last page first. If you ever want rid of the Outrider, let me know. I managed to pick up a couple of mission series 2 packs from Argos today, only £6 each. Bossk & IG88 & Biker Scout & Wicket
