Very nice Leia, Bruce! Need one of those myself.

Just FYI, those images only load if the user is logged in to Rebel Scum. Might be better to attach them to your post.

Some great items being picked up recently. I finally managed to get a dark brown hair Luke for a decent price. Quite difficult to find in ok condition
Indeed he is I paid £30 for mine about 4 years ago. And I thought that was expensive. Lovely variant. Sweet pickup man👌🔥

After months of abstaining from making expensive purchases, this came across my path and I couldn't pass it up.
Been really wanting an example of this MOC for quite a while, a Palitoy 45 C Princess Leia Organa!

The card is slightly curved, with a small pinch on one corner of the bubble, other than that she looks great. I love seeing this figure on a ROTJ card with a CLEAR BUBBLE! She looks absolutely amazing to me.
Pop her in a GW Acrylic case and she looks even better!

:D

Cheers to all!
Bruce
Wow! Wow!! & Wow!!!

Many congrats.
Looking for mint sealed or unused Palitoy Empire.

A few new additions picked up over the last few months - apologies for the poor pictures - beautifully enhanced by some GW Acrylic.

Great additions. I agree on the cases. Class
Love the off the shoulder look she's got there. :D

I remember I was after a ROTJ MOC Leia for ages but she seems harder to find than on SW or ESB. You just never see her crop up on eBay on a ROTJ, at one point I had a couple of 12 backs but thats as rare as rocking horse shit.

Deffo in my top 3 wants and a lovely example.

I don’t often get the chance to add to the @@ Driver focus these days as I’m only really looking for one thing (and this wasn’t it!), so it’s nice when something new crops up. Thanks to Paul for the heads up
WowZER! And the 30 back too. Yes to both of those please haha. Sorry what is the one you are after?

Thanks - actually the 30 back was the one I was after - I’ve had a very good month collecting wise.
