I can do this one Lars after struggling with the last few :)

I picked this up from Jordan Hembrough at Memorabilia at the NEC a few years back. All sealed and unused but the pop has been removed and unbeknownst to me the long weather vane piece had fallen out and was missing.

I did email Jordan at the time to see if it was kicking around somewhere but got no response, so have been on the look out for that piece ever since :(

Wow that was fast :shock:

Hi Andy, that is a beautiful bespin gantry you have 8) I do not know Jordan Hembrough, but I am sorry to read about something was missing and that he never emailed you back about the missing part, sounds like he is a bad seller :evil:

Here’s the one I had as part of my KayBee focus - shows how slowly they sold seeing as it ended up in KayBees discount bins.

ok, he just sounded bad since he have not contacted you. Are you not angry at him since you got something that is missing an item ? or did he just give you a refund and never contacted you ? I have never heard about him :oops:

Some nice micro collection bits there. Especially the Bespin gantry, and what a novelty for you being complete. :lol:
Did these sets all join together to make a larger set?
Has that one got two “weather vane” bits?
Andy (spoons) is looking for one of those if it has (see 2nd post down).

Yeah it must have been miss packed with two. I had seen his post and thought it was ironic that I had two in mine.
