My favourite pick up so far this year and a top five piece of Sigma for me, been looking for this for three years. Huge thanks to Alistair (Cornish Jedi) for
Selling me this and giving me a great deal.

Big logo Ig-88, bought this after watching the Mandalorian trailer. There’s an advertising buff I bet they never predicted!

Absolutely over the moon with this re-seal 20 Back R5, a really cracking example with a cut at the back to remove the figure so once cased up it looks like a MOC. Complete with original footer.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Ian (Palifan) for the deal on this, he has been instrumental in helping me put together my re-seal run across the board, and even helped me obtain original footers I was missing. A great example of how fantastic this forum is. Thank you Ian :)

Your more than welcome Mark and I'm so glad that I could help out a few of you guys on this forum with your reseal collections. It's good to know that some of my collection is still part of this forum and that I've helped to build more reseal collections out there. :D
