I'm going to guess this is the most random modern acquisition shown in a while, but in my home we have almost every Star Wars tsum tsum and many hundreds more... Also have last years comic con exclusive 'Han Shot First' 2 pack tsum tsum pack....

Tried to get into the modern stuff as I wanted some memorabilia that celebrates the post vintage Star Wars universe. I liked some modern, but wasn’t a fan of the human face sculpts. Was hoping the Black Series would fix that desire, but also not a fan of human face sculpt.

The past 3 celebrations I have been amazed by Sideshow and Hot Toys. Especially in Orlando this year I was blown away by the quality of these toys.

I can’t undo the screw on BB-8 yet, but he lights up as well. These figures are outstanding. There’s another one in the post. Enjoy.

Ok- that’s enough. (For a while)

Sold some modern for this stuff. Certainly takes up less room.

Must admit I have been hooked by the Hot Toys Figures. It is about all I buy now due to the cost.
This double pack is my last edition which I bought last month. I think the Han face sculpt is there best yet.

I know luckily they are released with a year on pre order giving you a year to spread the cost. I have Jyn Erso on order, looking forward to that one.

Here are a couple of photos of some of my others purchases.

The Hot Toys releases are superb, pricey but fantastic, some amazing pieces on show here 8)

Grant...the EFX helmets are great, where do you stand on the Black Series? I have the Stormy which I think is great for the money

Have you seen the Vader 3 piece to be released next year? Looks amazing, must have for me 8)

I picked up the Black Series Stormie and have the Poe Dameron helmet for my xmas present ( which is great quality for the price). That Vader helmet will be on my list next year.

There seems to be the feeling it will be around the same price point as the others that have been released, but I can't see it TBH as it's such a more detailed helmet and more work has gone into it, just have to wait and see, but it looks great.

Picked up a couple more TLJ bits...all from TRU with a money off voucher 8)...

Picked up Yoda which I didn't expect to see at TRU just yet (they did have Obi-Wan on the peg but the bubble was slightly crushed so i passed on it until I find a better one...they only had the one on the peg)...the Force Link starter set does remind me of the Commtech Chip reader that came out in the 90's
