Is it just me...but I find the completed bounty hunter form quite sad.
I wonder what the story was there, why wasn’t it sent in?
A truly amazing piece of Star Wars nostalgia!

I know what you mean. Cant be many that ended up like that, good collection of figures from all three films too.

Is it wrong to say I hate this thread, I get jealous of all the great stuff that people find :D
That Kenobi/Jawa miscard is something else.

Maybe Andrew's mum never got round to getting him a postal order

Just got this tri Stormie in this morning from Hoth Ice Planet Toys.

Nice condition with only minimal wear and a nice minty white figure, this represents the last of my MOC collecting, my collection is now finished 8) ( unless I come across another smoking deal of course :lol: )

Nick that is a truly special O/S Jawa!

The Canadian Falcon is none too shabby either. Nice gammy too Chris, and minty speeder bike Edd. Cant beat a Fett either apack 8)

Apologies for the long post but I unexpectedly have another LA. There is an auction house 10 minutes walk up the road from my work, which I occasionally have a look in and the odd bid. Last Thursday they had quite a bit of vintage, action man and Space 1999 blue prints so I thought I'd take a look.

The online auction showed these two monstrosities with a die cast falcon so I planned on bidding £5 as the falcon was complete but dirty, and worth a shot.



Next to the Ep 1 horrors was this box of ROTJ Marvel comics, which I hadn't seen on line. Thought there must be at least 40 so planned on bidding £20. I've been working my way through SW Weekly, ESB monthly and now its time for ROTJ. When i got back to my work I couldn't find the comics on line and realised that there were part of the same lot as the Ep1 and Falcon. This was clear if I'd bothered reading the Ep 1 description but who would? Described as collection of comics and books



Anyway I won the lot for £25 including fees and brought it home today. Totally stoked to find Nos 1-100 clean and tidy ROTJ comics. Would have paid at least £1 a copy over the next year or so as I work my way through these.

When I sorted through I found all kinds of gems. A lot of the comic free gifts were included - letrasets, posters and booklets



Also a couple of sticker albums and ROTJ books



This brilliant Toy and Hobby poster - Don't think I've seen one of these before but I do have the version with the blank square issued to stores.



And my absolute favourite, a completed but never sent Bounty hunter sheet.





Andrew Jackson of Merseyside are you out there?

Best. Buy. Ever.

Spoons, I'm leaving my wife and marrying that Toy + Hobby poster. And that Bounty Hunter log is amazing. What a fantastic treasure trove. Once again an auction house fails a seller and a buyer comes up trumps. Great buy.

Well i was hoping to be able to show off a purchase from Ebay today, but when it arrived yesterday i quickly realised that the seller had mixed up 2 addresses! Unfortunately someone else got my ROTJ Press Pack. I don't suppose any of you want me to post a Theatre program and photos from the Prince Purple Rain movie :roll: :lol:

After a patient two or three year wait I have finally landed a Spanish bubble Trilogo Amanaman.
Thanks to Andy for the sale & Carl & Ben for the head's up.
Here he is together with the standard Trilogo and the Edilio Parodi Italian import stickered Trilogo.

I'm not too sure if there is any other Tri variant, hopefully not :D

Thanks for pointing that out, I never even noticed it (talk about can't see the wood for the trees :roll: :roll: :roll: ).

Every day's a school day, that's why this site is so great, always learning :D :D :D

Three nice MOCs there, what a shame about R5. :(
Really highlights the risk when these fragile pieces are shipped.

Yep, posted in a Star case but with no protection in the Star case. Top was split when I bought it, but bottom completely split open now.
Amazes me that people ship without additional bubble protection. These things are getting more fragile by the day.
Was offered a full refund if I send it back but I can’t be bothered. Rather keep it!

Glad he got there safely and to the right owner. Looking good.

So much great SW fap material, congrats to everybody! I especially like the Trilogos but it's all good. I continue the ROTJ Kenner MOCollecting with Chewie. Nice bubbles and Swedish girls are expensive. Have a nice weekend!
