I thought there wasn't another way. I've stopped buying these but did want to put a Palitoy first 30 released set together (the kenner figures released on Palitoy logo card backs), so may well get this one as it's the missing one. Also it might be nice to at least complete the bounty hunters so this is the only way to do it.

Thanks Richard, I just got back to the UK yesterday but the next Farthest From is a bit to soon for me to get there but hopefully I'll see you there at some point this year.

I'm off to Florida in a day or two so will miss it unfortunately. Will be at the Summer and Winter one for certain.

How’s everyone doing with their sets? Have to admit I’m in the process of possibly selling mine off!

I guess you're not doing so well with them then :lol:

I gave up a long time ago, I was going to get the first 30 released characters (from Palitoy), but they started holding characters back and messing with the order for some reason (maybe as they were using Kenner to go off of?), and then I was going to put just the bounty hunters together but I never quite got there. Also the variants all got a bit much and I could see a very deep rabbit hole opening up so decided to knock it not the head.

The artwork and stories started out pretty strong but with stories crossing over into single character titles and the artwork changing up I felt I'd had enough. They do look impressive all together but I feel I've had my lot with them and am happy to keep the ones I have for now.

I'm still going strong with mine, still missing a couple which I will pick up eventually, except the black & white Luke#1, I think that's out my price range!

Still need to pick up: 3 Vader Down figure variants (Buy me toys / All Heroes / Wanted comix) and black & white General Tagge.

Just missing Luke B+W#1. Not bothering with the variations of Vader down etc.

I had 6 of those after they first appeared on ebay.com, bought them for like £50 each and flipped them for £150 each several months after, really wish i'd have kept them now though because I think they're selling for around £600 ungraded.

:shock: :shock:
