Got it from R2dtoys for 8 quid

I agree Craig there is so much cool looking modern stuff but not enough money for both so vintage will always come first but the odd piece here and theres ok :)

Yeah I'm the same, some of it looks good, but it just isn't the same as the vintage. I guess cos I don't have memories of playing with it (destroying it) as a kid.

its a concept stormtrooper from episode 4

when designing the movie they used an artist called Ralph McQuarrie and this was one of his ideas, pretty smart eh?

they are also bringing out a boba fett concept

Not sure what to make of it, it's certainly different.
A Stromie with a lightsaber just looks weird though!
