Nice Mocs..! And that Falcon is awesome. I picked up this mint Han Carbonite on a shitty repro trilogo Moc with a modern Carbonite block in it, for 25 quid. Right result :D

Nice pick ups guys, I need to purchase something soon, getting withdrawal symptoms :lol:

Started a new job and it's so demanding, I don't get the time to look about :(

The Gamorrean Guard holds a bit of a special place in my heart as it’s one of my only real SW childhood memories. The GG was the only figure I can remember getting a duplicate of as a child and so having a dilemma as to whether to open it up or take it back to the shop and exchange it. I elected to keep it as I really liked the figure, and it became my one and only army builder figure (we’ll 1 of 2 anyway) :lol:


Nice pick up 8)

I have a fondness for ROTJ figures, think its because it was the first Star Wars film I saw, I was 11 when it was released and have been a massive fan since then.

I have 2 loose guards in my collection, 1 for display and the other is a beater that's being eaten by my Rancor :shock: :lol:

I saw someone selling a Gamorrean Guard leg on eBay so you could put it in the Rancor’s jaws

First thing I’ve bought in a while, only a handful of Mocs to complete the run now.
Love this card on Tri logo.
