I added a Hasbro Ben Kenobi robe to the Anakin, should really be a darker brown but I can live with it, put him in the cabinet along with Vader, also moved a couple of figures to my smaller display cabinet

Citadel Of Chaos was the first one I had and I ended up with most of the ones you've pictured as well as a few more. I found some a few years back in a charity shop but they were later editions as the pictures weren't these original ones. These books are so hard to get through though and frustrate the hell out of me. Now I remember why I stopped getting them :lol:

Nice to see though, they really do bring back a lot of memories (although mainly me throwing them across the room).

I had a ton of them over the years, might even still have a box full still hiding a away however I think one of my younger sisters squirrelled most of them away along with my black library stuff :? :roll: :lol:


Good to see these, dont think I have come across any in a long time to be honest.

Grinchy, that is one hell of a galactic level cave. Well done, anything you are looking forward to adding to the collection?

Hello mate, thanks glad you like my collection, i am proud of it
Not looking for anything in particular,though i am looking for another 1/6 scale, i have nine 1/6 scale figures now, what'll be the tenth? :D
It'll probably be another custom figure, as the prices of hot toys is eye watering as you know, if money was no object i'd love the tarkin vader double pack, i can dream can't it :)

I was offered one of the twin packs last year and honestly, I kick myself for not picking it up. At the time, I had just purchased a hot toys K2SO. In the end, the seller ended up dipping out and vanishing and just refunded the money. The twin pack opportunity was gone by then.....


Looking at adding Obi wan or Clone commander Cody next, maybe both....Probably both. I still haven't managed to get hold of Jyn Erso though, or clone wars Anakin. :x

Thats a shame on the two pack, sorry you didn't get the figure at least you got the cash back
Jyn is a nice figure, hard to get now i've noticed, at least for a good price anyway, i hope you get what your after
