Really boring but satisfying acquisition for me, 21 years after getting my boxed X-Wing I finally took the plunge on the inserts!

Really, really satisfying. Don’t want to rush putting them in the box as I’ve waited so long.

Honestly card inserts are one of those things you can overlook one day and seriously regret it further down the line, I was lucky that my battered xwing box had its insert. Hunting for Palitoy open and closed belly Tauntaun inserts was a pain in the lower end for sure, both are different.

Well done indeed.

Yes very true, in fact looking at sold listings on eBay made me buy the X-Wing insert as I realised I had missed out on some AT-AT inserts.

Some cheeky re-seals of FB.

I love the palitoy logo on the 12-30 backs

Great pick ups. Always pop in every day - some great stuff recently
