Rob: Looks like there were quite a few of us lucky enough to get the Death Star for Christmas back in 1978. It'll be like Christmas all over again when you get your new (to you) playset :D

Wrighty: Cheers mate, I'll be interested to see what they go for- although now I've been drawn back in to the Star Wars universe once again, I'm guessing any proceeds will go on Palitoy figures rather than being directed to restoring my classic car :lol:

Cheers,

I'll second that, Iain :shock: Honestly, I had no idea what the value would be- I think it goes without saying I'm over the moon :D

Again, may I just say that if anyone from SWFUK has purchased either of these items then send me a private message and we'll sort out a discount.

Time for a beer, I think. [walks into the kitchen in a bit of a daze, to say the least :? :? :?

And a big, BIG thank you to the lot of you, firstly for allowing me to post this item on here, and secondly for drawing me back in to the world of vintage Star Wars with the warmest of welcomes... I'm now thinking how many figures can I buy with this sudden windfall...? :D :D :D

Thanks again, chaps- and far from being a 'one post wonder', I'll be sticking around if that's alright!

Thanks mate, that's good to hear. I'll be honest, after being drawn back in by this fine forum, looking at the bids up 'til Friday I was thinking I wished I had never put them up for sale. Funny how things turn around when the pound signs start flashing up :shock:

It'll be a struggle to keep my sensible head on... my old Morris does need some work doing to her, but blimey- I could make some nice SW purchases instead... :lol:

As a result of those sales you can really push the boat out and pimp up your Morris :) congratulations.
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.
