Honestly id want both Luke and Han on tauntauns :lol:

I have tried on a number of occasions to try and pick up the old ones but no such luck, and im trying to hold back from paying stupid money as you just know Hasbro will re release them. Well you'd of thought so..... :lol:

Very nice indeed, I should really pick them up at some point but I kind of wished they had been released in the same time period and kept the same packaging, fine if you want them open though.

Bossk has got to be my favourite, hope we get some mando' tv series Trandoshans too.

Looks like you completely failed with not getting into Black Series :lol:

I can see why you folded though and those bounty hunters look amazing all in a line like that, fantastic run and I can see why you've also picked up some on the Mando ones as well. It might end up being a slippery slope for you with these figures but i think it's more than worth while once they're up on display.

They look fantastic open together but I must echo @Sundancer Squadron that as a collector that doesn’t open items they should have been released in the same packaging.
@Dr_Ball_MD they do tend to multiply, you get one and the next time you look there’s loads in your collection.😀

I’ve tried to stop picking up BS figures with limited success. I wasn’t too fussed regarding the Amazon exclusives, but lo and behold, I’ve ordered them :roll:

Got another couple of additions coming in, this elite series Luke and Han stormtrooper set i missed out on when they were first released, just won on ebay, pleased with it
Image
also got a couple of Rey items in, first up the titanium series Rey, didn't pay a lot for this, definately not worth the twenty they were originally retailed at, i paid £8.40 shipped, happy with that, i have the Finn from this set already, just need Kylo and phasma to complete the set
Image
Finally Rey Jedi training on Crait, got this loose, a nice set
