My VOTC Han just received the other day

The case looks a bit scuffed from the pics but in the flesh, so to speak, it is fine. I take them out of the case to display though 8)

The Leia figure is nowhere near as good as the vintage figure but i like the card. That is my VOTC set complete now apart from Lando, i might not bother as i am not that concerned about displaying him but i might get one for completeness.

I am still trying to complete my vintage loose AFA run, or the ones i particularly want. The modern collection is a stop gap until i can actually find the graded AFA ones i want, however some of the modern imo is very nice, the sculpts etc are amazing.

I have one or two Saga items i want, i will probably get the 30th anniversary tins as they look very nice, the 30th Vintage and thats it; i think.

yeah pretty cool 8)

Although Ben and Tarkin look like they were stuck on the front as an after thought, way down there in the corner where no one can see them.

Was it expensive?
