Picked up for a very reasonable £22 posted. A set of vintage badges. It doesn't have to be expensive to be cool.

And things definitely don't have to be cool to be expensive!

Got this lovely Probot droid chucked in with my Hoth imperial attack base the misses bought me for Christmas but it was missing a leg, so today I received the well travelled leg all the way from Utah 😁👍

The stand I bought from Iains display accessories (Thank you Neil) which looks the business 😉

Got to say I am chuffed to bits 😘

That Probot does look fantastic with the stand, I might need to get one of those to display mine.

Cheers Ian, it's a substantial stand for sure, think you can get 3 different versions but I prefer the base I got, displays well 😁👍

Last year’s goals were: 2020
1. Complete the 12/20 back MOC run - 6 left, all the expensive ones! :roll:
2. Leia Hoth on a Tri Logo with as mint a card and bubble as possible. - been looking for ages for a mint one.
3. ROTJ Biker Scout blaster MIB.
4. ESB Han Solo MOC
5. ESB C3PO Removerable Limbs MOC
6. ESB R2D2 Solid Dome MOC

And the outcome:
1. Still need 4, so not too bad.
2. No...came close on one occasion, but that doesn’t count does it :roll:
3. No
4. Yes and it’s a Palitoy one. :D
5. No, I forgot this one...
6. Yes.

Only one month into 2021 and I’ve managed to add numbers 3 and 5.
I have wanted a Biker Scout Pistol since I saw one at a toy fait in the late 90s but never got round to buying one for one reason or another...but have one now with a reasonable box, complete with a “we care leaflet” and ROTJ catalog and the two ties. I stripped it down and after a full clean of the contacts and a few minutes of spinning the motor it is back to how it was 35 years ago.

And a nice C3PO RL on a 48 back ESB card...finally.
