Been collecting again for about a month now and thought it worth showing where I'm at. I already owned all the MOC's apart from B Wing Pilot and the rather lovely Power Droid I received today off Scott (Clarkspie&chips), so they're both new.

All the rest are new additions, including the AT AT's feet just poking in from top of the frame. I also chucked the 6 beaters in to the shot that I'd bought for my little one (emperor is "evil lady" apparently, he's not having it that he's a bloke).

I initially bought a few loose graded as you can see but got a bit bored of them and quickly gravitated to loose with their original accessories (based on TIG anyway.. repro's are even more a pain in the ass than I remembered and anyone selling them using the fact "they even float" as a selling point should be done for counterfeiting, fraud and copyright in my opinion.. anyway I digress :D ).

I forgot how much this hobby can grip you its been a lot of fun getting back into it.

Love the German Parker POTF 3 pack 8) looks in really good condition

PD & r5 20 backs are sweet

Some nice Jedi as well ( like the Luke Gunner)

Have all these been picked up in one lot?

Fantastic

Thank you for your comments.

The German Parker 3pack is in really good condition. I purchased this separately. The mocs and vehicles were bought in the wild.

@Mr gudz and the force thank you

Thank you edd 😅

The bubbles are all cut open on the head in order to remove the figure. They were only put out to be displayed. All unplayed. Most of the cardbacks are general mills. I have bought them from a person who was the original owner. Figures and vehicles were bought in the 80s in Germany.

They were also 2 yps snowtrooper included with the action force gun as well as this snow white mint tie fighter and many more stuff
