Andy do you think you could post a pic of the blockade runner please? I've never seen one in person and wondered exactly how small it is. Maybe put something for reference in the pic like a grain of sand!

The only die cast I really want to get would be the slave 1 for my fett focus. Other than that id really only pick the up if I found them cheap enough.
I hope you find a Slave 1 :wink:
Thanks I've bid on a few but I'm just really cheap sometimes. :lol:

no problem Scott - this is it in the cruiser, which is pretty good for a scale

Thanks for that, it's got to be up there as the most lost accessory of all time

The original and repro look hard to tell apart, are there any tell tell signs to watch out for?

Here you go Ian

Click on the reproduction tab, the mould line across the engines is the biggest tell on these ones but there may be others types of repro out there
