Nice little birthday Luke
Wow, a real beaut there @Grant_C
I miss my carded collection and seeing a card like that does twinge a small amount of regret but I had to do what I needed at the time. Still not got the bug back. 😒
Chris mate, don’t worry about the Star Wars- it would be fantastic just to see you again. Hope you can make to an event when things open up again

Hi all, second post.

Just picked up a good-to-near-mint condition vintage Kenner Han Bespin outfit with original gun. Now waiting on Bespin Gown Leia.

Not sure if you ever lose the regret or the bug, I stopped collecting for 13 years and it still came back.
I suspect it will at some point, this is the 4th time I've sold up and lost the bug, so far this is the longest stint.
How long has it been?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

5 years so far. I still buy SW books as I collect them so I suppose I'm not totally out of the collecting game. :)

Carded and loose. I was aiming to collect every figure on every cardback. I got up to 110 carded I think it was and a nearly complete loose run. Had some real beauties in the carded collection as well. Some have gone to guys on here. Also had a Yoda side focus which I've still got some of it left.

I went down the Kenner route. More affordable and readily available.
