Not sure why I put them on the back burner for a while but the price was super good, if anyone hasn't got one then go for it.

Really think these figs/cards look great.

Pretty sure my wife is going to open "the child" and put him on her bedside table first chance she gets :lol:

We pre ordered them ages ago. Before they arrived I'd decided I was going to stick to OT and would just put them up for sale when they arrived as a sealed box. They arrived in an open box which meant w could pull them out for a look.......definitely making it harder to sell now that I've seen them :lol:

I've gone for a few of these figures that should be arriving soon although I didn't order Cara Dune and I'm not getting caught up in all of the madness surrounding people picking up her figures at inflated prices. I can understand people wanted to complete their certain collections though so I guess you have to pay the prices asked at times.

I do think these look pretty nice though and I'm glad I'll have some in my collection :)

Arrived today from SAF, glad to finally get hold of some raiders at last. They got super expensive before the rerelease.

They look really nice in the Archive packaging. I haven’t pulled the trigger on them yet as I’m focusing on Mando.

Id recommend getting one of each, as they both appear in the Mandalorian show.

Loving the 50th figures! Really nice.

My Mando Retro set arrived this morning. Love them! First thing I did was remove the awful leaflets. Will have a go at the stickers later...

Mine turned up as well. After hearing a lot of negative chatter about them, I’m really impressed by them. Removing the stickers fills me with dread :lol:

Yeah, the stickers aren't the easiest to remove! Wish they would knock the stupid fake card scuffing on the head though. My son was comparing them to my vintage MOCs yesterday and found it very amusing!

Did you manage to get the stickers off in the end Andy? I've heard that they can be a problem although some people have had success with using a hair dryer (no use you my though, there hasn't been a hair dryer in the house since the 90's lol!).

:lol: I always steal Rach's ;)

Mixed results. Most came off fine, hairdryer then gently peeled one edge. Takes a while to get it started. Once you've got enough peeled to get grip, you can heat and pull. Some left some residue, which comes off with patience and furniture polish. Need to be careful here, as the litho on these is nowhere near as tough as on vintage cards.

However, the ones on Greef and Cara were awful! They were welded on and just wouldn't peel in one piece. Both damaged the litho, so I ended up putting one of the stickers I got off in one piece back on to cover the damage on the Greef card :(

The leaflets are easier, just used a Stanley knife inserted at the bottom of the bubble where it's not stuck down, then carefully followed the line of the bubble edge down into the bottom left corner and about a third of the way up the left hand side. Then used tweezers to remove the leaflet and sealed back up with clear PVA applied with a brush (as per your advice years ago!) and then clothes pegs to hold together for a few hours. You wouldn't know they had been opened 8)
