Very nice pick ups Grinchy, must admit That Luke looks nicer than the 6inch version sadly.

Mr Fett arrived today, opening the box had me really concerned finding just the moc and a bit of scrunched up brown paper for a bit of padding and nothing else to prevent it from rattling about. These are really easily damaged but thankfully it survived still I wasn't best pleased. It wasn't from Star Action Figures though but from someone else I always recommend to people, maybe im just being unfair?....

Oddly enough, apart from the white version released long ago. This is the first 6inch Fett I have got, as I missed the original as well as the archive line version. I'm sure its the same though, whilst I still think they should of updated him and given him pinless joints he is still nice and worth picking up.

Top marks for that one, an almost iconic little fella. Whilst I feel the Disney store exlusive (I missed out on that one) does have a better shape to the top half of his body, I still think hes a really good offering and probably the biggest droid to ever be released.

I get the feeling its going to be a rather sought after piece in the future.

I agree, this is a great “figure” and so very nearly went for it, but space is starting to get filled very quickly and I have to draw the line sometime. :(
