The last few days were a thrill - until it arrived today I could not be sure, if it was genuine. On the auction picture you could see absolutely nothing. But several parameters let me take the risk. Displays great and I think I won't ever come nearer to a VCJ MOC than this.

Outstanding. Well done

What a tremendous pick up that VCJ is! Huge congratulations!!!

Ruby, nice market pick up. Always good to find something in the 'real world'.

Really like all the more oddball stuff being found as well. S1dow, love the books and transfer sets.

Benny, that card has got to be one of the best- she looks amazing!

Andy, the Dairylea stuff is fab- been after these myself. So hard to find!

TheJabbaWookie, that ESB stand is absolutely superb!!!

Got a couple of small bits recently: picked up a couple of diecast bits from gammoguard and a minty Stormie from ebay.

Finally, managed to get hold of a full set of Battlestar Galactica Shreddies scenes. Know they're not SW, but I hope people will appreciate them. Arguably harder to find than the SW ones and often go for crazy prices. Got these for a smidge over £30, so really chuffed. They will make up part of my extended childhood focus.

Nice pick ups guys! Bought this jawa recently, 41back. It’s a bit different, it comes with the Han blaster instead of Jawa one

Some gum stickers from Turkey made by Kent I believe. Don't know much more about them. I know this isn't a complete set, so if anyone has any I don't have I'm open to trade.

This arrived this morning. Dinged card and a small crack in the bubble but good enough for me.

Love the Galactica transfers! I haven’t seen these since the 70s but they bring back memories alright, I must have had them along with the SW ones. Great find!

Probably shouldn’t post these here as had them 40 years and not Star Wars, but funny I should find these whilst rummaging through a box of my old stuff right after seeing your post of BG scenes...
