That's brilliant, never seen one of these before, were they a US only release?

I have the same one as this and picked it up a few years ago in the US from a toy shop I go in now and then. They always have a great supply of vintage toys that seem to come through to them each week so you never know what you'll find.

Such a great piece!

Nice pic ups! Love that costume 8) Nice poster as well, Kieran. The Stormie cardbacks are cool and the Rebel Commando has got to be one of my favourite ROTJ MOCs 8)

Been a bit busy myself over the last couple of weeks. First up, got this Cliro Vader bubble bath for under a tenner. Had this as a kid, so it's perfect for my Childhood Focus 8) Just need an Artoo now...

Next up, won this Palitoy Greedo at the recent C&T auction. Was really after the R5, but that went for silly money. Always wanted Greedo as a kid- it was the first figure I picked up on my 7th Birthday in Zodiac Toys, Swindon. My Mum thought it was too scary :lol: so I settled for R5 and DSD.

Finally, this one came out of the blue. Carl (Lejackal) gave me a shout that this was for sale on Facebook. Reopened my Facebook account to have a look and got the deal done quickly. It was graded and the footer was out of place, so have broken him out and sorted the footer. It also has something unusual about it- anyone spot it? I was dead chuffed to discover this as it's cool and wasn't mentioned in the listing. Couldn't see from the pics either... So, huge thanks to Carl- absolute star - that's what this community is all about 8) This was one of those figures I'd almost resigned myself to not ever getting, which was pretty gutting as it was the only one I still needed for my childhood focus.

Still no idea! :lol:

Is it a Han Solo blaster? Average person on Facebook wouldn't even notice that. :lol:

Nice trio of MOC there as well, what's going on here. :shock:

Nice MOCs Phil 8) Can't beat a SW Jawa 8) If you turn your pic around on your phone, save it, then turn around again and save in the correct position, it should work.

Adam, yeah it's hard to make out, but he's got a smuggler blaster 8)

My what some fantastic Moc’s in the last two posts.
Congratulations to you both.
Andy never owned either a Greedo on a SW card, or a Fett on any card very nice.
And Commber75, love the Imperial Gunner, my favourite figure of the whole line, and a Jawa with a Fett offer, another on my list of wants.
