Big thank you to all the people who visited me at Echo - looks like half the stuff here was mine lol. Even some of the bits that weren't, used to be mine.

Great getting to see them live on in new homes :D

I remember a few years ago when this forum was on fire and you were buying everything in sight. :lol:

Just moving the carded out - collecting loose (lots of loose). The carded are out there, I can always pick it up again in the future. Currently loving getting loose through the post, sitting down and cleaning them up - feels much more hands-on, nostalgic and therapeutic.

But my main love (Jawas) and my second love (Canadian Special Offers) are now at the pricey end of the spectrum - so I am wanting to focus my display and funds on those 2 (while collecting more loose).

Also Star Wars nights out aren't cheap :lol: :lol: nor are strippers.

Had him/her (Still have him/her!) as a child. I remember the oddball bubble so well.

I got the POTF at Echo, but it just didn't work for me. It has to have the HUUUUGE price sticker and the funny bubble!

I think I'll upgrade my other POTF to Trilogo in the future..

It is a lovely piece, the bubble obscures the lovely card art, very strange !!

It’s taken six months to add another figure to my Palitoy with trilogo bubble run, happy to find this one on German eBay:

That's a beautiful card ... and another example where you can see, that the 1.59 Sticker is underneath the bubble. Love it.

Amazing pieces! That EV9D9 and Lando Skiff look box fresh! Stunning!

Had a brilliant start to my day today. One of the girls in my class came up to me during registration and handed me this fella. She said she'd told her Dad that I collect old SW figures and he dug out this Lando for me. Very chuffed 8)

What an amazing Lando treat for you today! He looks really mint as well and maybe you'll get that Palitoy 20 back DSD tomorrow :D
