Those are some magic additions pal - love the festive Vader.

Managed to get a few new 6" Black Series figures. Still cant find a single pack Baze in 3 3/4 size might have to bite the bullet and opt for twin pack to get him.

Great scores mate, chirrut and baze look good in the black series, I picked them up in the elite versions as they were on offer, and I did look at the black series on display in Disney store, they wanted 22 each, so I snagged the cheaper versions as i'm cheap :D

I don't think there is a Baze out in single card as of yet ....not that I've seen one anyway....I'm pretty sure he's only available on the two pack atm in the 3.75" range
