Re: Starting from scratch, once a month....

Cheers guys! I think Han sounds like an excellent suggestion!

Re: Starting from scratch, once a month....

Good luck and may the force be with you... :wink: It is already proving a challenge as I see people selling multiple first 12 figures in one go! But will power is k...

Starting from scratch, once a month....

This is kinda like a glorified Wanted post, but I thought I'd put it in here anyway because it'll be fun to update each month.

Re: NICE BOXED ITEMS COMING SOON!!..........& some nice loos

That small head Han on your top row, whats the condition like? It appears that he doesn't have a blaster too, is that correct? Also are both Chewies suffering green limbs or is it the light?

WTB: Minty ANH Leia

So come end of 2014, I'll have a beautiful set. And hopefully I'll have finished my man cave to display them!! (Let's not get too far ahead o...
