I was talking to Lars (Pomse2001) about how to display my card backs and he suggested a binder and poly pockets so I went and bought them to display the card backs in. Much more organised now, thanks Lars :wink:

It only seems like a few months ago (probably because it was) that I bought my first 30 back having decided to put a run together after finishing my Palitoy first 12 on re-seals.

Well, another 6 down means I only have 6 left to complete it! It's mainly thanks to some other members here and collecting friends keeping an eye out for me that I've been able to make a swift start and almost complete the run.

I just need LANDO, LOBOT, YODA, LEIA 30b BESPIN, UGNAUGHT and FETT (obviously). Lando and Lobot should be pretty easy to track down.

Hello,
I am new to the site. Not sure how to manipulate this yet.
I have slides of return of the Jedi and revenge of the Jedi that were not used in the actual filming which are really cool. I do not know how to upload a photo, sorry.
Can someone tell me how to upload a photo, please.
