Picked up another Episode 1 figure yesterday off Ebay....its been ages since I bought an Episode 1 figure as there is not that many I need for the full collection of single card figures....

Saw it for sale on Ebay and the seller was in Leeds which was a bonus...so did the best offer choice and then collected it to save the postage....

I need to get that one as well, I think I only need 7 to complete my carded run. All the ones I need are a tenner or under so it's not too bad.

I think its about 6-7 Episode 1 figures I need to complete the set as well...can't remember exact ones off the top of my head...only two I can remember are two variants of the battle droid (think its the 'dirty' one and the 'shot' one)...

Picked some more TLJ pieces from TRU in York today...

Resistance A-Wing (which according to the TRU website comes out sometime in November so why they have it know I don't no ?)

And secondly Obi-Wan Kenobi...which is surprisingly awkward to find (well I found it awkward anyway...its only the second one i've seen,the first one had a slightly crushed bubble)

Also they had Kylo's Tie Silencer as well and that isn't supposed to be available until November as well...

Been to TRU in Leeds again this morning to buy this .....(I'm addicted...help :oops: :lol: )...
Got them to price match Smyths...so reduced from £59.99 to £39.99...I were surprised that they did price match as Smyths don't actually have them in stock atm but only available on a Pre-order and I read on the TRU website that for them to price match the other store had to actually have them in stock (to me that means available for online delivery or collection) and Smyths don't do either atm...If challenged I were just gonna play dumb but they said it was fine they'll do the price match 8)
