Cheap Thrill...

Postby Darth Bobby » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:53 pm

I was at my mothers at the weekend sorting through some old boxes, I emptied one out and look what was at the bottom of it... two blasters and a speeder bike flap. I was so made up, my mother couldn’t understand why I was so happy. I was seriously smiling for about an hour. Better than drugs.

PM sent for the price sticker. :lol:

Can't beat the feeling of finding something that was actually from your childhood, even if it's just a small thing, plus the fact that weapons practically always vanished makes it more of an interesting find. :)

Very cool. Got a similar reaction when I found one of our M.A.S.K. helmets down the back of one of my mum's old sofas a few years ago :lol:

Absolutely brilliant find.
Do you know that I’ve just paid £15 for one of those blastes!

Ha! I already did exactly that a few months back... tipped the whole thing out (we had it in a big wooden chest my Dad made for 7" singles) and found all sorts of gems, but no SW at all... :roll:
