So I first saw this toy back in 2016, in toysrus, loved it but the price was around £150, so I reluctantly passed on by
Fast forward to now and a friend has one and is selling up, best part is its a boxed example for £35 quid,bonus!
The wife bought it for me for Christmas so its wrapped by the tree, very stoked to finally have one, playing the long game worked on this item :D

It really is, no room to display it on a shelf, so floor space it is :D

It really is huge, I picked one up for a friend of mine for about £60 and wish I had got one for myself. Realistically though not sure where id put it, would love a snowspeeder or an ATST if they ever did one.

Cheers guys
if you could strengthen the wings and struts it would make a cool coffee table with a glass shelf on there, but i'll just pop it in front of my display cabinet should look good

If i could fit in there to eat my dinner i would, not far off, :lol:

I would love a snowspeeder and I like the idea of an ATST to, I hope we get some OT vehicles, now we know they can produce vehicles at this scale, fingers crossed

That’s nuts. How big is that Grinchy? Is the smaller one in front of it a vintage sized one?
