Some amazing items being picked up guys, well done.

Two new additions this week, both special to me for different reasons.

Firstly I have finally picked up a ESB Han Bespin to complete my ESB Bespin MOC run.
Didn’t expect to get a Palitoy 30 back, but the planet’s alighted at the right time a :D

And then a MOC that I have been looking to add to my collection came up in the same weekend! :roll:
I have never owned a Luke Original (Sorry I hate the term Farmboy) on any cardback, so am really pleased to get him on a 20E.

Great to see Luke has a new home Nick! Nice Han also!

Hi i'm Russ

Remember above the clouds the sun always shines

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

Bit behind with the forum but some amazing items being posted up gents, loving the pick ups.

That Ewok Combat with the other two is making me want to aim to get that run too, look amazing.

Have only got a few bits and pieces recently, my aim today is to try and photograph them and upload, never get round to it so determined.

Never leave a beater behind £1.99 from rhyl comic shop just because it had paint on it. Challenge accepted I even treated the antenna with some wheel trim gel 👊

Gonk Scrubbed up well.

I was pleased to receive this meccano sticker ewok catapult today.
Now that is cool. Kenner box, Palitoy sticker and Meccano label over the top. I have an Ewok Glider: Kenner box, Palitoy sticker and an Italian sticker over the top. These things were well travelled.

Poncho, that's a great score from eBay! There are still bargains out there. I was chatting to a guy who put up 15 figures on FB marketplace including a really nice Pop Up sabre (no sabre) R2 for £20. Remains of his chidhood collection.

Andy, that box ended up in the right place. It's was a great bonus in that genuine "loft find" of Deeko. Great stuff.

Been almost a month since I last added some new buys in this thread so I was working out what I'd bought since then. I was a surprised by the result. :D

Almost completed my first 12 run in the last few weeks. Firstly, picked up a superb Ben Kenobi reseal from Lewis @ldr. Then, the legend that is Ian @Palifan helped me out with Luke, Han, Leia, DSC, C3PO, R2 and a Jawa. All apart from the R2 are from a childhood collection where a door was cut behind the bubble, meaning that all of the bubbles are fully sealed. I already had Chewie and Stormie from Ian a while ago. I also have a Sandpeople MOC, so I'm just looking for a Vader now to complete my Palitoy first 20 run. Sorry about the quality of the pics- acrylic is very reflective!

Cracking re-seals Andy, it's a really satisfying run to put together and an awesome display.

Ian (Palifan) is a gent and pleasure to deal with too - he's helped me and many others here on their quest to put these Palitoy runs together.
