Hi i'm Russ 👋

Remember above the clouds the sun always shines

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

Hey guys
Ruby, i'm ok always something to moan about health wise but gotta be positive :D
The han is a sideshow figure, the head is a custom, not sure where that came from, i do like it though, i swapped out the hands for the gloved versions

The likeness on some of these are in great, that anakin is scary in likeness

I have a soft spot for the 1/6 scale figures and think they are great

You have a nice collection of scale figures going on there Grinchy very nice indeed 8)

I love my vintage, but this " modern" collecting at some point in time will also become vintage, it all boils down to what " floats your boat"

Keep posting these additions up mate 8)

Your not wrong Mike. :D
POTF2 is “technically” vintage now, the early POTF2 stuff is 25 years old.
Yes I know that the market was and still is to an extent awash with this stuff, but some of the rarer items (and yes there are some) are creeping up in collectability and in turn, price.
There are a lot of “vintage” collectors who also have a soft spot for modern and are building collections again.
For me its the same as what the younger members here felt buying and getting figures in the 70s and 80s, as I remember buying POTF2 in shops and enjoying them back in 1995, yes I am that old. :shock:
I also remember thinking that they were going to fund my pension too... :lol: :roll:

Cheers guys, I love both vintage and modern and collect both, one day some of this modern stuff will become vintage, bit of a ways off yet I think, the true vintage will always be our seventies and eighties figures :D
