Some fantastic additions lately lads, @coomber75 i love the storyboard!

I’m delighted to finally get a Force Beam today having wanted one ever since seeing the ads on the back of Star Wars Weekly. It was sold as not working but a bit if tinkering got it fired up again!

It’s missing the handguard, if anyone has one for sale please? Either loose, or as part of a beat up Force Beam, would be great.FDA7FB50-0C05-4F4D-A358-216C50C74FC7.jpeg

Once again SWFUK leads the charge in gorgeous new SW acquisitions. The last couple of pages alone: PBP AT-AT Driver, yoghurt store display poster (no idea they even existed, congrats Andy, awesome find) and a super example of a solid belly Palitoy Taun-Taun box. Brilliant.

People never cease to amaze me. Being an eternal cynic I still get caught out by random acts of generosity and kindness which makes me check myself. Then the world carries on doing it’s whole 2020 thing and I settle back into comfortable cynicism :) Having bid strongly in ebay for the super gorgeous Trilogo Rebo band (been after such a blue Max and such a nice box forever, well, 5 years), a conversation with the seller reveals it’s none other than SWFUK’s kieatky. I say something like “Oh, it was you that got hold of the T+H poster one Ebay”....and before you know it Kieron has said “have it”. As in, have it. Despite protestations (OK, I didn’t make them too strongly) and offers to pay at least something, a token amount ( I did try much harder at that) he wouldn’t hear of it and sent it with Max.

I’m so grateful, Kieron. Thank you so much. Been after this for 2-3 years and a saved search on eBay has stubbornly refused to turn up even one example. I’m going to get a proper mount that fits it but for now this will have to do.

Finally, before I go: anyone ever seen the “L” in a circle stamped on any toys before? My theory is it’s a dealer’s or toy shop’s stamp.

Great Han @lejackal and nice Vader collectors case @Gadders I’ve always fancied one of those.

Finally after looking for want feels like ages I’ve managed to find a bubble to complete this figure and cardback.
I couldn’t believe my luck to not only finally find a bubble but it was an attached bubble on three sides from a cut card of the same one that i was looking to repair.
So no repair work needed (thankfully) I just slipped Han inside and slide the bubble into place in a GW case and here’s the end result.
