Re: The LEGO Corner

Another cheap UCS set finished. Never want to build a set this size the same way though.... eBay seller sent everything loose in a bag...took ages to sort out. 20190915_131249.jpg 20190915_131254.jpg 20190915_131314.jpg I've still yet to build my box one but it's an impressive sight once it's put t...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Finally, managed to get hold of a full set of Battlestar Galactica Shreddies scenes. Know they're not SW, but I hope people will appreciate them. Arguably harder to find than the SW ones and often go for crazy prices. Got these for a smidge over £30, so really chuffed. They will make up part of my e...

Re: Diamond in the rough Luke Farmboy

What was the price if you don't mind me asking? Ian £309. Not great for a beaten up luke Farmboy. But not bad for a nice DT Luke. The price was getting high when I spotted it. In fact it was kind of what alerted me to their being something interesting. I guess the risk was in the condition, whether...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

That's a great find and at the price that the AFA loose VCJ's were at for years.

Really good to hear stories like this, especially when they get into the right persons hands :D

Re: Diamond in the rough Luke Farmboy

Wow good price especially given the final result. Still, like you said, it didn’t go unnoticed and I would of been sweating on that deal working out given the condition of Luke in the initial photos and the fact you couldn’t see all of the saber. You’re a brave man and fortune favours the brave. Co...

I really hope that you and your family are coping with everything as best y...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I’ve been really pleased with my new acquisitions this week - top and bottom of a Dairylea box with the transfer sheet, 9 Fun Products stickers (which should complete my run when I can find my other loose ones!), early British Fan Club correspondence, and a Frankel & Roth bag. 7C83738C-2750-408...

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

I thought the rumor for the next wave of Retro figures was ESB focused to fit the 40th anniversary next year: Han Hoth Luke Bespin Lando Yoda Boba Fett Bossk R2D2 Sensor Scope & C3PO Removable Limbs in a special set (similar to Tarkin from wave 1) That would be a shame not to have the final 6 b...
