Nearly got a complete loose set - now for the pain

Post by bertie_big_bollocks »

...I'm going to need to upgrade a few.

God help me, but what do you guys see as the best way of getting a niiiiiiiiiiiiice Death Star Droid (that isn't part droid, part felt-tip)?

I would buy one from Leahs Toys.

They always show photos from all angles so you get a pretty good idea of what you are getting. It may cost around £18 but if you don't like it you can always send it back for a refund.

Tell me about it, i really want my next vintage SW loose AFA purchases to be an AFA90 grade DS Droid and a 90 Tri-logo Boba Fett. The chances of finding them are 1) remote and 2) expensive :roll:

This is not mine, but I have "borrowed" the photo from RS as it is such as rare piece:

Yeah i saw the one on RS and was very impressed by it, i didnt think that a 90 DS Droid would have existed as they all seem pretty dull etc.
I did miss out on an AFA85 Tri-logo Boba Fett which i should have got but was holding out for a 90, maybe one day :roll:
