And with this, I think I’ve finished by original MOC run!

Now I have two decisions to make:

1. Do I upgrade certain cards? (POTF to trilogo, ESB on ROTJ cards to ESB etc)
2. Do I collect the Droids/Ewoks line? (I already have a couple)
3. Do I go for Vlix? (Just kidding!!!)

UKS
For my two pennies worth would be to upgrade what you have to cards that you really want.
Droids cards have great art work, but I can’t live with the yellow bubbles.
Great Yak by the way, you’ve been looking for a while now, congratulations.

S1dOW, those flyers and great- not seen them before.

Grant, that lucite star is a find and a half! Awesome!!

UKS, nice Yak 8)

Paul, the Anakin offer run is coming along really nicely!

Nick, COOL diecast TIE. Really liking diecast stuff now and have started a loose run myself ;)

After waiting an eternity to find my Palitoy/Ben Cooper masks, another full set became available. This set is absolutely mint- not a single crack anywhere and the colour is phenomenal! The only defect is the ding on the Stormie. VERY happy with these 8)

Well that solves that mystery. Congratulations mate :D
Congratulations Andy, this is often the way.
I wondered why you were selling your old set, as Carl said that makes sense now. :D
Thanks by the way. 8)

I love this! The POTF card is so ugly in comparison

Picked the Star Wars Official Collectors Edition Magazine up off of eBay. Not seen it before and no idea what to expect but it’s packed full of great articles on the inspiration behind Star Wars, as well as behind the scene pics and stories, and info on John Williams, Ralph McQuarrie and the Hildebrandt Brothers. But my favourite dps was the Star Wars Glossary.

I likely. Cool find - what age / when released?

Edit: researched - 1977!

Thanks Andy - so pleased with it - and that UK Topps box behind it is your old one I believe!

Just received this, best thing I’ve picked up in a long time! It’s the vintage plush Chewbacca, in great condition, and the bandolier is still attached with the plastic tag. I’m surprised how big it is, must be 2 feet tall. This one came from a guy in the UK, so although it has a Kenner label, it must be a Denys Fisher item - apparently he bought it back in the 70s for his daughter, but she didn’t play with it much so it’s been in his loft ever since. The label has some printing on the inside, does anyone know if this is normal for all Kenner Chewie’s, or is this a way of identifying it as a Denys Fisher?

These Chewies are just great. Would love to get my hands on one as well.
Congrats, mate!

That is true, ewoks supposedly one of the less popular mocs yet Warok appears so infrequently
