Welcome to the forum and some nice purchases recently. A bit of nostalgia is good for all of us especially in the current circumstances and still having some of your childhood figures is pricelessAdmiral Snackbar wrote: ↑Thu Jan 21, 2021 3:58 pmHi guys.
Thought I would join as I’ve recently begun supplementing my child hood toys that I kept in great condition with stuff that either didn’t make it, or I gave away.
I have a young lad who loves Star Wars just as much as me and it’s a joy to see him peowweing with those old figures.
However, having read up a little recently some of the rarer figures now live in my drawer not in his toy box! A complete Luke stormtrooper (with black blaster), warok, romba, complete yoda with snake among them!
Fortunately as I was rather meticulous as a child I have about 40 of the original blasters and accessories. I kept these separate in an old cigar case my grandad gave me. They still live in it!
I’ve recently purchased a complete Jabba (£45), scout Walker with top gun(£35), snowspeeder (no harpoon- £24) and a few other bits and pieces. I don’t know if it’s lockdown but the nostalgia is nice. But I can see how this can become expensive!
I’m enjoying the searching and restoration aspects of it as much as anything. Just bought a good looking y wing to rebuild as well. Always my favourite ship.
So that’s me! Thanks
Enjoy your collecting and share on latest acquisitions
