Yeah they are good value for money
Well home and bargains got another lot of 6 inch black series in, 4 new ones, hux, snowtrooper, x wing pilot asty, and first order tie pilot
I know there were some issues with the last lot but these all look great, those other ones are released again also, and they still have the same problems but for 5.99 I think they are a good deal

I'll have to pop down to my local Home Bargains. They didn't have anything last time though.

Week off work, in Birmingham today and thought I'd pop into the Disney Store.
Well, she's down to £14.99. Bargain.
Its a bugger trying to change her hands mind.

Anyone in the north east looking for those home bargains figures. Seaham had them in today. My friend spotted them so rushed down to get asty hux and pilot. Plus the kylo as its the better sculpted head scarf.

They didnt have chewie or finn or stormtrooper but they did have rey and bb8 looked fine. It was dirty version with lightsabre.

Wasnt aware theyd sold shoddy ones previous till saw this thread tonight. I hope there was no problem with kylos paint app. I didnt notice anything??!

This may answer my question about tru at gateshead having shed loads of sloppy painted troopers in stock too. More rejects?

last year home and bargains had a load of black series in, the paint apps were not the greatest so people thought they were factory seconds or similar
This new lot are better but the rey with bb8 has a black smudged dome on most I've seen, similar to the last lot, the newest four hux, asty pilot and snowtrooper all look great
Got this grievous in today from ebay, love the saga packaging with the clamshell

Nice pickup mate!
Went to the local Aldi today and they had reduced the 6 inch heroes series from £6.99 to £3.99 so picked up four of them
Image
Also checked out BnM store, they had the single force awakens figures for £5.99 which is a bit steep but the double pack for £6.99 so nabbed Threepio and R2

That Famba rocks. I remember back in the day I asked a friend who live in NY to grab one from FAO and bring it over for me when he next came to London. I had no idea of size so was quite surprised when he walked into my office one day in a very grumpy mood having had to lug the massive thing all the way in hand luggage because he couldn't check it :)
Great find though.

Some great pick ups lads well done (The Famba looks well cool 8) ....I still haven't seen anything in my local B&M so far even Home Bargains seem to be pretty quiet as well.....it all seems to be the Hot Wheels cars that fill the shelves on Home Bargains of late for me and I don't collect those :( ....

I've a few new pick ups but no photos as of yet.....

Thanks for the kind words matey. All i need now is a potj carbon freeze chamber payment plan or a cheap as chips buy it now! Grinchmeister, it's a reet beast with ' real feel ' skin apparently altho' touching him thru' the preview hole it just feels like plastic.
Just read that back. I advise people not to use the phrase " touching him thru' the preview hole " very often. Unless you want to of course :lol:
