Fantastic pick ups there, love the Cloud car and the R2 is ace

Here's my latest with a little poetic licence :lol:

I have wandered the jundland wastes for a number of years,
I slayed the krayt dragon and retrieved the pearl despite my fears,
I have searched in vain for what seems an age,
I have Learned to quell my anger and my rage,
It is time to find myself my true home,
Where amongst others I am not alone,
Where I can retire, rest and be cared for,
Where I have a home and wander no more,
Now I am content and in my place,
Look closely you may see a smile on my face.

Ha! Great poem Mike and that looks like a cracking Sand People all nicely tucked up where he belongs.

Happy days! :D

Hi guys.

For those of you not on fb I thought you might like to share my latest addition.

The price sticker has a massive pull for me as toy and hobby was where I sourced many of my Star Wars toys back in the day.

Thanks

Mark

Finished my loose collection years ago, but have recently started up grading a few. The bling on my cloud security guards has always bothered me, but thanks to nick Rayner, no more.....

Pleased to finally get the Rebel Command Center this weekend from a friend and fellow collector! I wasn't a fan of the card playsets growing up but really like them these days...there's a definite charm in the simple detail. My friend was also kind enough to pack it with some white polystyrene which works nicely as a surround for display, while the MLC-3 helps account for the track marks in the snow!! :)

Great new edition Ed and out of interest did this moc variant come with the blaster taped as standard or did they also keep it in the figures hand like on the earlier releases?
