Completed my Palitoy 20-back run, thanks to Ian @Palifan , who sold me all the bits I needed to build a Power Droid MOC (figure, card, bubble & footer). The bubble was quite crushed, but managed to push most of the dings and dents out with the help of a hot water bath. It sealed back down pretty well. There is a cut in the back, so the figure can be removed, but it's not massively obvious when on display.

I never intended to complete this run, but it has just come together in the last few months :)

That looks fantastic Andy and I'm so glad that it ended up going to you :D Also congrats on completing the 20 back run, it's no easy achievement to complete any of these early runs and I know this one really came together in the last month (strange how things like that happen some times), but they look fantastic on display all together like you have them.

looks like you've found a very productive way to spend the extra time off.

Nice one Andy, finishing a Palitoy run is very satisfying, especially when you land a HTF piece like the PD! Ian has been crucual to helping me on my run too. Beers all round and they're on me :)

Another one of the list, getting down to the last few mocs now, personally think this looks better on a sw card but will be a decent place holder

Actually having a sort out in office today to get straight. So will post a few bits I’ve bought this year that I haven’t boxed up as I get to it.

Nothing special here but two trilogos, FX-7 is one of my favourites on the Trilogo and also got the Klaatu on Klaatu skiff guard miscard, had one and sold it at echo and regretted it, luckily managed to nab another for similar price.

Got these three Palitoy reseals off Mark.
R5 just needs some acrylic but the Hoth Trooper and Bossk are a little project for me which I’m going to actually reseal.
