Finally picked up another of my modern wants as stupidly never got 1 on release. Been watching them for seems like years on the bay but not prepared to pay the £60ish pricetag. Then 1 popped up on a local facebook site for £40 so a £30 offer and hey presto :mrgreen:

Chiffy, amazing pick up for £30 mate 8) Would love one of those myself.

Damian, that Boba is so damned cool. Amazing.

I've had a great modern week. The pick of the bunch is this. After seeing Ryan (starshipriot's) Secret Santa gift I knew what I had suspected: I needed one. I love the transforming heads and will pick up a set in due course but I'm determined to do so at less than a tenner each. The Death Star in good, complete, boxed condition is a bugger to find at less than £60. Imagine my surprise when this popped up on buy it now for £20 plus £6 postage. Described as complete with "some internal packaging" it was better than I had hoped. It was complete and had 4 bits of loose cardboard in the box. After 20 mins of fiddling and various combos I got it back together and hey presto, a bobby bargain, £26 Micromachines Death Star:

From another seller I picked up all this lot for £50 delivered. I was never a fan of the Deluxe packs but I knew I would ha e to get them at some point. Still need to pick up the Probe Droid. And I quite liked the FX figures although never had them in the 90s although have since picked up some proofs, so defo had to have them. And when I saw the sabres: bam! I was straight back to my uni years and pissed sabre fights in Liverpool! Had to have them. Love he packaging. So overall a great week to be back in modern. Absolutely loving it.

Dammit. I wasn't going down this route but it appears my satnav has totally fucked up.

Little trip to Home Bargains today. £73 spent. Not bad considering R2's RRP was £120. Hey, that justification works in my head!

That's very cool :) I see it's £100 at TRU at the moment. Although those lucky buggers in the States had it available to them at $50 on Amazon early today :(

Ok, was trying to cut out random purchases but 100 for that beast... It will sit in the store room untill Christmas, but at that price couldn't resist. The boy will have a long wait though, not that he will know :)

Just picked up an AT-ACT myself today looks excellent. It May come down a little more in the future but could not resist at £100, considering it was £299 at Xmas.
