Well, that's about the best story to end this year on IMO! Brilliant mate, what a xmas present!

The ONLY thing that could have made this any better would have been if it was a 30 back! :lol: :lol:

That’s the best Christmas story since Scrooged. Bloody brilliant. Worthy of it’s own pedestal and display case, I reckon!

Oh, and I’d be striking my cousin off my Christmas card list for sure. What a git!

That’s a fabulous story - what an amazing Nan! Just like a portal back into the 80s, getting one of your gifts delivered from back in the day. Lovely.

That's brilliant.

I only remember being bought 1 figure by one of my grandmas, and that was Klaatu. Having a carded Fett turn up with that backstory is really special.

All my collection was sold in the 80s, but in the early 90s I found a single hoth backpack in with my lego. That's the nearest I've got to a cool story! :lol:

This is brilliant Dave. Absolutely stoked for you, not being a MOC collector, to only have one then this is pretty special one to have, even more so by the wonderful back story to the item. The stories are what make collecting great. Congrats.

Your cousin should have asked you if there was something you wanted from the lot before selling the lot and should also have offered to share the money from the sale with you.

But what a great story about how you got that boba moc and it looks fantastic, thanks for sharing it :wink: and since your cousin did not share the lot with you then I guess it is also fair not to share the boba with your cousin :wink:

Amazing story and photos! So nice to hear that things like this still happen. In case you aren't aware there are many fakes of these around from Toy Toni (Google it if you've never heard the story) but yours looks like the real deal. The fakes in circulation (usually with the wrong 'tri-logo' figure inside) make legit ones more desirable, so even in that condition it's probably worth £800-1000. Nice one :)
Thanks Edd.

Im aware of old Toni and Jeff's Baggie factory :evil:
This cards a 65bk D right ?
Was looking on Jason Smiths Cardback guide the other day ....... Legendary work !!
I was thinkng £500 - £1000 so i wasnt far off , Not being a MOC collector.
Its not for sale guys ..... Had a few Pm's asking to buy him but hes not for sale .

Glad you liked the story.

Dave.
