The way to build a decent collection for a reasonable price is to look everywhere. Don't be fooled by people on Facebook claiming 'evilbay' is expensive, there are many bargains to be had on there if you bid rather than go for buy-it-now items. The truth is you can get good deals - and bad ones - everywhere. My collection comes from eBay, forums, face to face events like Farthest From, Facebook, antique shops, literally anywhere that may sell it. Patience is the key.

Been after a decent clear bubble Zuckuss on a Jedi card for a while, picked up a nice offerless 65 back, sitting pretty in the middle.

Feel a little embarrassed to post this compare to some people’s acquisitions but I completed my tauntaun with saddle and reins. Just the saddle is my childhood one. The rest I’ve picked up off eBay waiting for a bargain.

The simplest loose figure gives as much pleasure, if not more, than a MOC etc. Absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about, we all love Star Wars and we all love seeing everything that’s picked up, loose Taun Taun to prototype rocket fetts and everything in between

As Carl, says, it doesn't matter what it is, if it's vintage SW, it needs to be shared! Love the Tauntaun 8)

Carl- really love the Greedo- most I've seen have had yellowed bubbles.

Dr Ball- very nice Zuckuss. A great line up!
Collecting SW since 1980.

Nothing to feel embarrassed about mate, it's a great feeling to get something completed, especially the reins, they are as rare as rocking horse shit 🤣🤣
