Yes there were some boxed one up on eBay last night but they went for high prices - will get some though - especially those in the pictures

Went to the local booty today and found a stall selling collectables so knew I was going to pay higher prices, bought some di cast items then noticed some star wars. After some haggling managed to get the below all for £14, for old school me a lot of money :shock: but don't think its so bad with todays prices.
Funny thing was the c3p0 was in a sealed plain bag (please don't tell me its some unknown to me Kenner . palitoy sealed baggy :lol: as its now liberated). I have been after a fixed limb c3p0 as I only ever had the removable limb one so was trying to see if the limbs came off through the heat sealed bag :D the lady would not let me open it so had to guess through the "gate of the legs", it was fixed and managed to haggle £10 to £7 :D but had to have it. Cards were a £1 and I love the underlining on the back under the figs that I used to do , got , got ,got :D Boot sales rule the fun is in the hunt

Don't panic maxf limbs are very loose and rivet rusty with some wear, looks like its seen active duty before, if I was in any doubt I would not have opened it, bag was a thick guage heat sealed bag heavy duty plastic like the bags sand comes in at wicks so think I am ok :)

Haha - good to hear! Hopefully frank doesn't have to add the 'wickes builders sand bag' variant to his catalogue!

Totally agree mate :D

Well it's Saturday, it's sunny and it's my Birthday :D :D :D

Lovely mix of SW presents old and new -

Daughter got me this beautiful Vader TIE - never had one as a kid but seeing it now I think it looks amazing and it finishes off my top shelf of vehicles perfectly :D

Wife got me this minty Squid Head MOC and Admiral Ackbar baggie as well as the Palitoy X Wing insert - everyone thinks it's funny that I'm loosing my shit over "genuine" old cardboard :lol:
